Thursday Track Report: Closing In On Closing Things Out

The last day of a very mild November brought Tom Cali, CJ Wagner, Andy Maguire, Bob Shafer, Dan Coughlin, Logan Madill, Mike Zimmerman, Mike Martin, Jamie Wright, Ryan Burke, Harriet Smith, David Lloyd, and Marty Mazur to the IM Fields under partly sunny skies with a crisp breeze blowing.
Bwana took a poll of those at the workout to see who was running in Sunday’s Nittany Valley Half-Marathon. It turned out that everyone, except Bwana, will be there! A prior commitment has called Bwana away from one of his favorite local races, one he’s run at least a dozen times in the last 20 year! So, to go easy on the half-marathoners (many of whom just ran a marathon a few weeks ago!), Bwana gave out an easy workout of a few long stride-outs, just enough to unwrap everyone’s legs. The Crew did 6 or 8 straightaways on the IM Fields, about 270 meters each, at kick pace.
Good luck to all who are running in Sunday’s Half. We’re winding down the year’s racing, but we’ll keep the training up to get us through the First Night 5K and keep us in a holding pattern until the Indoor Mile Series starts (in about 6 weeks!). Before the Christmas break, you can join us in the annual Jingle Bell Track Workout, which will be held in three weeks on December 21. Details on that coming soon!
