Hi, fellow runners, just a few highlights for this month. For our Thu Nite
Group, don't forget that with the end of daylight savings time we have changed
to our "winter" location now at the North Chisholm Creek Park just north of K-96
and Woodlawn on the west side.
As usual for this time of the year, the racing
season is slowing down after a record number of races in the area during the
spring, summer and fall.
For those of you like me prefer longer distances than a
5k, you're in luck. This Saturday (the 9th) is the Inspire Hope 8k at the
Waterfront (13th & Webb); the National Veterans Day Run 11k (yes, 11k) is on
Sunday (the 10th) at Sedgwick County Park, not much info is out on this race,
but you can look at their website, http://veteransdayrun.org/run/wichita.
The annual Turkey Trot
10 Mile is on Sunday (yes, Sunday this year), Nov. 24 and the Say Grace 5k is on
Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 28. I've ran all of these races in previous
years except for the new Veterans Day Race and they are some of the best races
that we have all year.
For those of you who dislike the heat, your time of the
year has arrived. Get in some good runs, we'll catch you next time.
