Tuesday Run (Sept. 29)

We’ll meet near the Snail’s Pace store at 6:00 p.m. We gather in front of the In Flower floral shop (1050 E. Imperial Hwy in Brea), which is located between Snail’s Pace and Lascari’s.  We’ll be doing the 5.3 mile version of John’s Run.  One way to shorten this run is by staying on Associated Rd., rather then veering off towards Placentia Ave.  This will make the run approximately 4.5 miles.  If you want an even shorter run…you can always do an out-and-back run and turn around at any point.  If it gets too dark…it would be best not to cut through Craig Park.

Running Safely in the Dark:  It’s starting to get dark out by the time we are finishing up our week night runs.  It’s time to start wearing our reflective suspenders/vests, blinky lights and carrying flashlights.  Also…here’s an article on running safely at night.

BBQ Competition (Sat. Oct. 3):  Elaine’s hubby, Dennis will be participating in one more competition for the year.  This is a very large competition, a new one for them.  It is supposed to be very nice!  Elaine says that if you can’t find their team name (“COME AND TAKE IT BBQ”)…just look for the tall Texan in the ugly yellow Hawaiian shirt…that will be Dennis.  HAHA!  The event is open to the public on Saturday, October 3rd and all are welcome to come down and cheer them on.  The website below gives complete information on the event, times, location, parking, etc.:

This virtual 5K race was created to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association, Orange County Chapter.  Michelle was the race director for the actual 5K, which was held in Fountain Valley on September 12th.  Since not everybody was able  to attend the actual race…Michelle created this virtual race.

We thought that it would be fun to run this as a group during our run on Tuesday.  Of course…you may come out and run with us whether you choose to make a donation or not.  And…it’s OK to run more than 3.1 miles.  For those wishing to make a donation…here are the levels:

$20 – Receive a finisher’s medal AND a t-shirt (sizes small – 2XL)

$15 – Receive a finisher’s medal

You may bring your donations on Tuesday, September 22nd.  Donations may be made in cash or a check made out to:  Michelle Laizure

T-shirts and medals will be handed out after our Tuesday run. If you already signed up for the virtual race online…we will have your shirts and/or medals for you, as well.  For those of you who would like to make a donation, but cannot attend our run on the 22nd…here is the website below.  You may run this at anytime on your own before December 31st.
