Blustery but Active Week

The unsettled weather didn't hinder the fun at all the FZ activities this week.

Monday night brought 18 out for the Women's Running Group. Jenny's about to give birth to her first child (due in two weeks) but still put in a few miles. She's the energy that's made this such a great group for so many years. Email her for details.

Tuesday night there were more than two dozen taking part in a blustery 2 mile time trial for the Tuesday Performance Group. It was challenging but great to be out there with everyone and setting that baseline to see if we improve over the months ahead. If you haven't already, you really should check out this group. I really look forward to it every week and I'm not alone. The group keeps growing in numbers and paces so come try it out. Kudos to Max for his efforts and willingness to share his knowledge (if not his speed). Max had a big week last week travelling to Annan, Jordan for XC Worlds. He had a great race coming in as 3rd American and 40th overall. Check out his website for the details Yes, it is a little hard to believe that this is the same nice, humble guy who will craft a workout for the group and cheer you on every Tuesday Night. Its free, all you have to do is send Max your email and he'll email each week with the details

Wednesdays noon run is also booming a bit. This is never huge but 16 rallied yesterday for a lunchtime run and several enjoyed the Taco Stand waiting for them at the FZ when they got back. If it works in your schedule it always feels good to sneak a great run into the middle of your day. This one leaves from the FZ Wednesdays at noon. We all start out together and then it splits up with options of between 3 and 7 miles depending on what works for you.

Last but not least, the Functional Fitness workout had 15 on hand tonight. We did a "dirty dozen" workout that pleasantly kicked our butts just like every week. Kyle's good at making you hurt with a friendly smile on his face. He'll be hosting the Thursday workout at his studio on April 16th. Its over in NW Crossing just to SouthEast of that new Summit High Track. Check out their website for a map This is one of those workouts that we all know we should do but usually don't. Believe me, I can relate, but it's tough to stay injury free if you only run (or bike, or ski). It's only $5 and you just might like it!

So, lots of great things to take advantage of. You'll see several of us FootZoners at all of them. We hope there's a little something for everyone to enjoy. Cheers-Teague
