First Run of the New Year & Mo's Birthday!

  • This location is shown only to members

Looking for a fun run to ring in the New Year? Come join us for the second annual SGLRG First Run of the Year-Predictor Style (and Mo’s Birthday). It’s pretty simple. Come down to the lake,  predict the time it will take you, and run. There’s one catch: No Garmin, Timex, or any other watches. You gotta do it by feel!

We’ll all start at 10 am and there will be volunteers tracking the times. Only one lap this year.  If you feel like doing a second lap, put it in your RSVP and get there at 9:30 am, I’m sure others will be joining you.  This year we will start by the bleachers at the crew house, so that after you’re done, you can join in on a New Year’s Plunge in Green Lake afterwards,  If you are game, post it in your RSVP so we can get a count of the crazies.  I’m going out on a limb this year.  If there are 20 Polar Plunge RSVPs, I’ll join in!

There will be prizes, and no it won’t just be a free SGLRG membership.

I will be taking donations at the event to help with some basic SGLRG expenses for the year. I'll take $1, or $20 or anything. If you make any donation, you'll be eligible for prizes and some giveaways after the run at Revolutions.- You do NOT need to donate to participate or even win, it's just for the prizes.

You can post your # of laps and predicted time on your RSVP, or I will be e-mailing all entries on Sunday asking for their prediction.  We will start at 10 am sharp. After everyone is in, we’ll watch the nuts jump in the Lake and then head on over to Revolutions Espresso (next to Road Runner Sports) and barring computing issues, announce the prize winners.

For anyone who has never done a predictor run, they’re a blast. And we’ve all run the lake so much, I would imagine there will be some very accurate predictions. This isn’t a race, so the slowest runner in the group could be the one to nail it. So RSVP early if you can (Logistically it will help to get people entered into a spreadsheet), and come join the fun

    I am typically a two lap kind of a guy, so might plan on arriving at the stadium around 9:30am for an early lap. This week is supposed to be an easier training week for the HTC, so pace will most likely be dependent on who I am running with. Looking forward to watching you all plunge and getting some great photos in the process. :-)

      Jeez Loka, how could you let me run that fast on the first lap? ;)

      January 1, 2014

    • Loka M.

      Sorry about that Jamie. I think I was feeling optomistics that we would be faster this year than last. Thanks did the company. :-)

      I missed victory by 2 seconds! Perhaps just a little more incentive to start using performance enhancers in the New Year, knowing that gold is within my grasp!

    That wasn't a bad way to ring in the New Year at all. Seems like we should try this again next year! So many new faces today. I sure hope you all will join us for some of our weekly runs in 2014. Thanks to Steve, Gennifer & Stefanie for all the energy you guys put into getting the group fired up for this event. Thank you Steve and your team of helpers for all the organizing for the predictor run!

    Had to be a great day for Mo! Birthday! New Years! And most important....his 400th event with the SGLRG! Have a great year everyone in case I don't see you! Other wise come out Saturday for the 4 year anniversary of the Rise & Shine event!

    • Loka M.

      I guess I have one more thing to add for Mo- Birthday, New Years, 400tj and also won the prediction run!

    It would be great if you guys can predict your time before Tuesday night. Below is the route. 3.27 miles. Clockwise direction, starting by Crew Stadium, take path to the outer loop up at the NW Corner of the lake, and then outer loop all the way around the golf course and cut back in there. <<http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/338605737/>>;

    December 27, 2013

    • Gennifer M.

      The link in the intro works. The >> are what messed up the link for me.

      December 31, 2013

    • Steve S.

      That worked Genn. Weird, I've always needed them to create he link. Cool I don't though.

      December 31, 2013

  • Steve S.

    Trying the route again. If it doesn't work as a link, cut and paste it into your browser.

  • Kirstin

    Ok here is my prediction 27:22.

    December 31, 2013

  • Kenny T.

    No plunge! My lap guess is 21:55.

    December 31, 2013

  • Janette A.

    Like the 10am start =). Have no idea what my lap time currently would be, so let's say 30:03 for the heck of it!

      Welcome Zach! Actually we have a tradition with the SGLRG in which we throw our first timers in the lake after the run. It is a fun time for all! See you Wednesday! ;-)

  • Shannon M.

    Assume this is for the outer loop right (3.2 miles)? If so put me down for 32:00.

    December 29, 2013

    • Steve S.

      I'm having a hard time getting the link to work, but it will start on inner from the Big "G" at the crew docks, head north, and take the path to the outer loop in the NW corner before you get to the bathhouse.

    This will be my first time running the lake, going for 2 laps [I'll b there @930] guessing 1hr 4min :)
