Newsletter December 16, 2013

Resolution Classic 5K
A lot of Dawgs helped get the word out last week. Please continue to help with this as we only have two weeks left.  This race benefits us but if I don't get 200 runners we lose money. As of today we have 60 pre-registered. I either need your participation and/or I need you to help get the word out. If you are on Facebook, please post the link. If you belong to another club or fitness center ask them to help promote the race.  We have over 300 members in the club and you all benefit one way or another by being on the club so PLEASE help spread the word.

The date will be Wednesday January 1, 2014 and I am moving the time up to 10:00 AM. 

I need volunteers for out on the course. Contact Tricia Reilly at if you can help.

I will take care of promoting the race, timing, pre-race registrations, police, EMS, insurance, prizes, amenities etc. If you are unable to help or run race day, please do your best to get the word out to friends and family.

Click here to register for the race.

I will run a swim practice that morning 7:00-8:30 and there may be a spinning class 8:30-9:30 so you can start the new year with a sprint tri.

We will do some tailgating in the gym after the race. Here is a link to sign up to bring something.
