President’s Message

DavidFreezeY-Trail As I write the President’s address this time, I am doing it from the road. The road  as is on my bike. Not sure I have ever done this, but I have been spending quality  time with Hurricane Ida in Mississippi. Too much time!

The club had another of our Prediction Run 5Ks with Salisbury Parks and Rec at  City Park with an especially good turnout for new members. Of 12 who participat-
ed on a steamy Saturday morning on August 28, Cecilia Dennis took home a new  pair of Ralph Baker shoes. Her predicted time was just 20 seconds off her actual  running time. Amanda Lewis, Luann Fesperman and Steve Clark managed the  event while Karen Leonard took care of getting and serving the post-run refreshments.

Weather permitting, SRR will have timed the pre-county high school cross country event on September 1st at Dan Nicholas Park. The pre-county races are a sort of warm up for competition and to size up the other teams. Then, one of the high-light races in the fall season is the actual high school county championship, where the top county male and female runners are chosen.

Next up and the only race for September is the Love Thy Neighbor 5K, 10K and fun run at Concordia Lutheran Church. The race honors the memory of Crystal Wing and will raise proceeds for her medical expenses and will be held on the morning of September 11th. Each participant gets a free breakfast.

The first evening for the fall BRC class is Thursday, September 9th. As usual, the eight week class will include classroom instruction on nutrition, stretching and strengthening, shoes and equipment, running form, injury prevention and much more. Thursday classes start at 6pm. All current members are free to participate.

I’m sitting here in Lucedale, Mississippi while it rains yet some more!  Hopefully I will make it home for most of these things and will see a good portion of club members there. SRR is growing steadily and what can be any better than being a part of the action! And I might just tell you more about
watching a deluge of rain for three days and hopefully it’s not four!

See you on the roads!
