June 28 - Report from Jorge Carvajal: "I am having a great time with my internship at Educational Testing Service in Princeton, New Jersey. I actually live in Newtown, PA which is 18 miles South to Princeton. There are tons of trails and parks around here and I have been biking (brought my bike from KS) and doing some running. I ran the 5K ETS Firecracker last night. It is a certified, hilly course. It was hot (close to 90 F) and very humid. Here are my results: time of 20:37 (overall: 28 out of 306; 5th in M45-49; results compliments of Compuscore) I hope everything is fine over there."
June 27 - Welcome new club members: Keith Meyers and Amy, Rebecca and Erin. Here's a report from a proud Dad:
June 24 - Matt Riley was the first place finisher among a large contingent from Lawrence at Sat's Vasque Summer Intro 10K Trail Run at Shawnee Mission Park.
June 15 - Lori and Don Cackler ran in last Sat's Festival Fitness 5 Mile in Salina. Don't have the full race results yet, but there was a nice story in the Salina Journal about the top woman finisher, Sara Wells, a Salina native who now runs for Team USA Minnesota. This was Well's 4th win at this race.
June 14 - Running classes? Seems like any runner friend we talk to these days mentions they are injured or recovering from an injury. The New York Times today reports on the popularity of running classes to improve running form and attempts to prevent injuries. Read more.
June 12 - Results from Saturday's Tonganoxie Library Run.
June 11 - "If you are looking for a hair-raising, blood n’ guts account of a midnight traverse of Sherman’s Gap, the most feared climb of the mountainous Old Dominion Endurance 100’s many ascents, you will have to wait for my race report from next year’s race, because in 2007 I bailed right before I got to it.
June 10 - At yesterday's Rock Creek Trail 10 Mile, Gary Henry was part of the crew that haul a 300 lb. trailer cart by hand over the single track to their aid station in the woods. The state park ATV was out on loan for the Wakarusa Music Festival that weekend. The runners were very appreciative. That's real rock 'n' roll.
Summer Dog Days began Tues, June 5, in the middle of the construction projects making it more difficult to get into the football stadium these days. Nevetheless, about 700 people showed up for the first morning's (make that 6 am) workout. The New York Times and the Journal-World reported boot camps are popular these days (in NYC, and a program for women in Lawrence) where people pay money to be ordered to exercise. Red Dog wanted everyone to know his program is not a boot camp. The Marine veteran knows boot camps. The cost for Dog Days is your sweat. Check the group runs for more details.
June 6 - Minutes from the June 3rd club meeting.
June 5 - Jon King posted the fastest time among a dozen local runners at Sunday's (June 3) Rock 'n' Roll Marathon (3:40:09) in San Diego. Welcome new member Michael Rost joining runLawrence via Active.com.
