Hello Team Veg :) Now that CIM is over, it's time to start thinking about our next focus race, Shamrock Half Marathon. Come join us for this classic event on March 17th! This is probably the most popular Half Marathon Held in Sacramento and will likely sell out sometime in January! It is over 50% full now so make sure to sign up soon if you are planning on running it. We would love to have you all out there supporting our team and helping bring awareness about the Plant Based Diet to our community, with us!! We have a few new members now and many that did not participate in the CIM, so if you are interested in running this and would like to represent Team Veg, then please specifiy on here or email me, so we can get you a shirt. Shirt selection and sizes are limited so let me know what you want Asap, so I can order more with plenty of time if need be. Our shirt's are Awesome by the way! They say, 'Team Veg Running, Powered by Plants' on the front, and all new shipments will say, 'Plant Powered Athlete' on the back. I will start training meetups in January, to allow everyone who participated in CIM plenty of time to recover. We will be doing easy runs, long runs and tempo runs mostly, with some interval and speed work thrown in from time to time. I hope to have as many of you as possible out there with me, running for a reason and mission! Let's run for something bigger then ourselves and make a possitive difference in this world!
THE FIRST WAVE STARTS AT 7:45AM, HOWEVER, WE SHOULD ALL GET THERE EARLY TO HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO PARK AND PREPARE. DEPENDING ON YOUR START TIME, YOU WILL WANT TO START WARMING ACCORDINGLY, UNLESS YOU ARE NOT GOING TO WARM UP. FOR THE FIRST START WAVE, WARM UP SHOULD START BETWEEN 6:45 AND 7AM. LET'S MEET AROUND THE START AREA AT 7 FOR ANYONE WANTING TO WARM UP WITH ME FOR THE FIRST START TIME.
SEVERAL OF OUR NEWER MEMBERS DO NOT HAVE A TEAM SHIRT YET. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU HAVE ONE FOR THIS RACE IF YOU PLAN ON SUPPORTING OUR TEAM! THIS IS OUR FEATURED RACE FOR THE SEASON, WHERE WE WILL REALLY HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE AN IMPACT IN OUR COMMUNITY. LIKE I MENTIONED BEFORE, EVERYONE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. IF YOU JUST SHOW UP WEARING THE ORGANIZER SHIRT, YOU WILL NOT STAND OUT AND GET NOTICED. BY WEARING OUR TEAM VEG SHIRT WE CAN HELP BRING AWARENESS ABOUT THE PLANT BASED DIET AND SHOW OTHERS WHAT WE ARE MADE OF!
PLEASE CONTACT ME SO I CAN GET A SHIRT TO YOU THIS WEEK, IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ONE. I WILL ALSO BRING THEM ON RACE DAY FOR LAST MINUTE PICKUP. IF MONEY IS AN ISSUE, WE CAN WORK SOMETHING OUT. TO CONTACT ME THIS WEEK OR ON RACE MORNING, YOU CAN CALL OR TEXT ME [masked].
THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING APART OF OUR TEAM AND HELPING OUR VISION TAKE FLIGHT :)
