Brickyarders reunion!

Barbara Kream emailed us: 

Hi everyone,

Since I'm totally incapable of figuring out how to blog on the Brickyarder's
site, I'm sending an email.

My left foot is still slightly funky, and I sustained a tear/strain in my
right calf in April. However, this is healed and I am running again hoping
to train up for New Haven.

If any of you would like to run on the trail at Brickyard Road, please let
me know. It would be fun to get together again.

I hope all of you are well. I follow you on Brickyarder's and Facebook!

Thank you so much Barbara. Yeah, figuring out how to post to this blog is not obvious. Thanks for emailing me (us). Glad to hear you are on the mend. Hey, all, what Saturday would work for you. I don't currently have anything planned for this Saturday, July 1st. What's a good open Saturday for you?

Triple Play!

Mike and I ran one race in common this morning, a 5k in Terryville (Plymouth is the actual town). Per usual, Mike took pix and posted them on Facebook. Thanks Mike!

Jo Marchetti is a veteran for sure. Ran today w/o the neck brace she was finally able to shed after a car accident. I ran 3 races today, the final one a trail race in Oxford, CT, my 100th town in Connecticut . There's usually a lot of fanfare when a 169er hits town 100 but I only ran Oxford because friends suggested I join them. Blame Paul Baldini and Karen Rogers. Here's another shot.

Tracy Parkin, me, Kellie Boni, her son Hunter, and Mario Bear.

Congratulations to Mike and Tray on Lake Waramaug!

We didn't get too many pictures but her time says it all:

Tracy Zagata 50k


Mike was a tad slower but his enthusiasm is a perfect 10.

Well done you two!

Chip nails Boston!

After training for many months, Chip ran a 4:05:39. It took great effort, especially in the final 4 miles. Well done!! You overcame a lot and arrived several minutes ahead of the 2018 Boston qualifying time. And this includes the cushion. Major accomplishment.

Linda took these pictures in the Public Garden after the race.

Tray, Brent and Lee did 12 at Todd and Kim Brown's Asta Memorial this morning. We got passed by Bri and a friend at the very end. They did the 19.6. You do the math. We got pretty much soaked. About 30 folks made it. Hot cider, vegetable chili, banana bread. No shirt. No clock. Optional donation of 2$ (everyone gave at least that). Great to have three Brickyarders together. Paul Baldini asked if Tray was doing Waramaug. I told him she said she was considering the 50k. Maybe I'll show up and do a loop or two. Mr Run Every Day 'll prob. be there.
