Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end ...

Tonight is our end-of-clinic party for the winter/spring session. It doesn't get much better than a bunch of marathoners sharing memories over some good food. It's been a great few months with some memorable training runs and many PR's and BQ's along the way. There are several regulars, like myself, who join back-to-back(-to-back) clinics, but there are always some new faces as well. Even having just met a few short months ago, it feels like we've known each other much longer after sharing so many miles together.

We get to start the fun all over again next week when we kick off the summer session on Thursday.

We ran a really enjoyable 11K at run club last night, and I wore my CEP Compression calf sleeves for the first time. Full review next week!

Many of us are also getting together this Sunday for a long run followed by pool party. The group is running about 20K so I'll be adding on some extra before hand to squeeze in one final long run before Seattle. It's supposed to be a hot and humid day, so I'm sure I'll be thinking about jumping into that pool for the duration of the run!


Happy Thursday (almost Friday!)

Did you get that title from the song "Closing Time"? Just curious.

Glad you enjoy your running club so much and stick with it season-to-season. I've never found a group or club that was all that satisfying. Maybe I need to come to Canada?

Meg said...

The running and pool party sound like so much fun! I didn't realize you were doing back to back marathons, this is going to be an exciting month for you!

ajh said...

Your running group sounds like a lot of fun. I think you said at this time of year you wished you were a teacher. Did you mean summer because right now the kids are nuts and I don't like being a teacher! That is said Half jokingly!

alice said...

Looking forward to your review. I'm shopping around for some compression socks/sleeves and CEP was one of the ones on the list. I so miss my clinic. Makes me want to sign up for another :)

I've loved reading about your time with your running group. I've been thinking about finding a club or something in my area to train with. Any suggestions about where to start looking for one?

Heather said...

Enjoy the long run and the pool party - fun!

Steel Springs said...
