Want one of your own?

Happy Monday, runners! I hope you took advantage of the cooler weather and got some run time in before your weekend got too busy!


***from Roxana Conroy

I ran a 5k yesterday here in Ft. Payne. The run was to raise money for Whitney Smith who has plans to serve in Sudan through her church ministry. I do not know all the details but i have a website if anyone wants to check it out.

1) Race Report.  Jennifer and I ran the Inaugural Georgia Jewel this past weekend, September 24.  There was a 100 mile, a 50 mile, and a 35 mile race.  Jen and I ran the 50 mile.  She was the second woman overall, and I was the 9th male overall.  As usual, we ran the entire race together, and we were happy with our performances.  It is a rough course on the feet--lots of rocky and technical terrain, as well as some hills--but it was also pretty, and the volunteers were awesome.  We also saw Wayne running the 35m, and it looked like he was doing well.  I look forward to hearing how he did!


2) Trail Training Run.  Any trail runners interested in getting some miles in the weekend of October 8-9?  Jen & I will be organizing a run for anyone that wants to join us for any distance.  We're running the Pinhoti 100 course, throughout the day and night, hoping to cover about 67 miles total.  Important: no one is expected to go the entire way if they don't want to!  Anyone who wants to come out for 5 or 10 miles, please do, as we'd love the company.  Let me know and we'll coordinate: jayworrall@hotmail.com
