RR: 20 Degree Rule

If the feels-like temperature is less than 20 degrees we call off the run (we tested that rule last weekend when the feels-like was around 14 and confirmed the rule is a GREAT rule and should NEVER EVER be broken again)

Columbus Marathon in October

A few of us are planning on doing the Columbus Marathon in October. If you are interested/thinking about joining us you may want to book a room at the Hyatt on North High Street (2/3 block from the start/finish). They have a marathon rate of $139 while the rooms are available and the hotel phone number is 614-463-3034. You can cancel 24 hours in advance without penalty. Columbus is a very flat course (there is one slight hill around mile 17/18) and the crowd support is good. Wayne and I have PR there twice which should give you a clue how easy the course is! We are planning on going up Saturday and returning on Monday (I think it is a little over 6 hour drive).

Knoxville Marathon PR’s & Pacers

Congrats to everyone who ran the Knoxville Marathon/Half Marathon this weekend! A special shout-out goes to Teresa, Sharon and Michelle who both PR’ed on a very hard course. Another shout-out goes to Wayne who paced the 5 hour full marathon group and crossed the finish line 1/10 of a second after 5 hours (how is that for precision).
