Training for Shamrock Half Marathon

To all,

First of all welcome to all the new members! Sorry I haven’t welcomed you personally and I apologize for my lack of attendance. I’ve been traveling a lot for work. Got home Friday and picked up a bug on the plane from China so I have Bronchitis now but I’m on meds and should be good to go in a few days. Thanks to all the co-organizers Amy, Damin, Vince, Carina and Tom for getting all the Meetups going out there. Good attendance considering the weather. Tom posted a ski day on Monday that I couldn’t make but let’s do some while the snow is fresh!

If anyone is interested in helping put together a training program like the one below that I shamelessly cut and pasted from Fleet Feet’s Facebook post let’s do it. I wouldn’t have but they are full so…

    Andy, I'd be willing to assist. I can commit to the weekend run. I could move my long run to Sundays if you want to keep the Tue, Thurs, Sunday format. I'll start an organizers email thread to discuss details.

    Andy-I probably don't have time to help with organizing something like this. It would be great to attend though. I hope you can get this going. I hope you are feeling all better now!
