Both groups will meet at the YMCA at 6pm. If you're able to run 3 to 4 miles without too much trouble, TNRG is for you. If you're still building up your mileage, try the Beginners Running Group (BRG) to get you there!
Whatever your pace, whatever your running ability, Red River Runners Grand Forks will help you achieve your running goals!
see you tomorrow night.

When: Wednesday, June 2, 2010 at 6:00 pm
Where: Toasted Frog entrance to the Greenway on 3rd street downtown
Who: Anyone who LOVES to run; anyone who would LOVE to start running and anyone inbetween!!! You can go less than 4 miles or more than 4 miles if you wish, depending on how you feel that day!
Why: It's all about that first step! Running is an incredibly healthy, easy, and accessible form of exercise. Whether it’s five minutes, 15 minutes, or 45 minutes, every little bit of time spent running makes a difference in the goal to live healthy, happy, and heart strong.
Join us for National Running Day on Wednesday, June 2, as we come together as a nation to take strides toward leading healthier, fitter lives. (taken from runningday.org)

The countdown is on! Just a few short weeks before the BIG DAY!
Here are the routes for this weekend. Please meet at Center Court at 7am on Saturday and we'll knock this out together.
Half, you have 8 miles
I hope you can join us on Sunday, May 9th 2010 at 6pm at Plains Chiropractic for our final group presentation of this training season!
To wrap up this great series, we are going to have 2 very special guests come in and talk to us.
Eric and Cindy Sondag are a very accomplished running couple. Eric won the Fargo Marathon in 2008 (2:30.34) and his wife Cindy won the Winnipeg marathon last year (3:12.09).
Eric and Cindy have a very inspiring story. They will tell us about their crazy training schedules, how they fit in training with 2 kids, medical school, and full time jobs.
Eric and Cindy will also answer any questions you have about staying motivated, staying focused, staying injury free, and staying healthy.
Please join us! Here are the deets:
What: RRRGF Presentation
Who: Eric and Cindy Sondag, super stud runners
Where: PLAINS CHIROPRACTIC, 3750 32nd Ave South Suite #103
What to bring: Any friends who are either running fargo, have plans to run fargo in the future, or have plans to start running at all.
Plains Chiropractic is located in the strip mall next to Menards. They are neighbors with Anytime Fitness. I would love an estimate of how many people to expect so if you could shoot me an email, that would be great! If you're not sure, no worries. You can show up at the presentation no matter what.

What: Impromptu Race to celebrate Cinco De Mayo
When: 7:00 pm at Whiteys on Thursday, May 6th.
Why: There are only two types of guys who wear spandex tights in public: runners and professional wrestlers. We had originally planned to have professional wrestling night, but we couldn’t find a qualified referee. Instead, we’re having an impromptu race.
How Much: One friendly hola to others running the race. Other than that, there is no fee.
Prizes: All finishers will be given their choice of a handshake or high five from other finishers.
Everyone meets outside Whitey's and completes a warm up jog across the river. The invisible start/finish line is somewhere on the running paths behind Town Square.
5k Race - Run on running paths to Lincoln Park. Run the outside loop of the park (around the dog park) and get back on the running paths and head back to Town Square.
5 Mile Race - Run on running paths through Lincoln Park and head towards the Lincoln Golf Course Clubhouse, loop around the clubhouse and head back on the running paths. When you hit Lincoln Park on the way back, run the outside loop of the park (around the dog park) and then get back on the running paths to finish line near Town Square.
This is not a certified course; there will be no official times.
Everyone then takes a cool down jog/walk back over the River to Whiteys for a cool down cervesa (or beverage of their choice)
