Marathon Training continues! There is a great dedicated training group for the marathon and half marathon in Long Beach on October 15th. Remember that the run on July 8th will be at Stoneybrook Condos (500 Bellflower). All runs start at 7am.
Safety. Continue thinking about ways to run safely. Even in a race where the streets are cordoned off, there is always the possibility of a wayward car. Stay alert! If the streets are not closed, please try and stick to the sidewalk as much as possible and avoid darting out across the street! Let’s all run safe.
Board Meeting #3. The third AREC board meeting will be on Wednesday, July 12th, at Coach’s in Seal Beach following the run. One topic we will be discussing are awards. If you follow the results and points at the end of the newsletter (or check the website for more details), you will know our racing year runs September through August. We have our awards ceremony/pasta party right before Long Beach Marathon (no conflict with the holiday season!). If you have any suggestions for Runner of the Year (male AND female), Most Improved, Most Inspirational, or Rookie awards, talk to the AREC board, OR, attend the meeting to add your two cents. All club members are welcome and encouraged to attend.
