Were getting to be Fall Marathon Season with many of you running one in the next couple of weeks. Once finished you'll be recovering and planning for events for next season or maybe improving your 5K or 10K times.

A perfect time to give back to your sport. You say what pray tell. Well with the Seattle Marathon and half pretty much being or home event we're able to help the event and make it better and with many of you already having run your marathon earlier you can give back.

For several years we have handled pacing of the event as well as a water stop at the10 mile mark of the half and 23 mile mark of the marathon.

Patrick has been heading up the pacing chores for the last couple of years as always we're in need of pacers. Here is a link to info on that and if needed Patrick can provide you more. Also if interested he wouldn't mind a little help with organizing this. The sooner we can get this all toegther the easier it makes the job so please contact him if you would like to help out. So come on out and if nothing esle get in a nice workout as well as help your fellow runners achieve thier goals.

Glen and Bert have been heading up the water stop for several year using a lot of time and energy but making it the best damn water stop on the course. This year with Glen's recent hip replacement help is really needed, as you imagine that Glen is is pretty limited so a lot of this will fall on Bert shoulders so if you can please lend a hand it would be appreciated. Of course on race day you help will be needed at the stop, if you have kids bring them, they love this. the time goes by fast  and it's a lot of fun. If you can't make it to help maybe you can drop a donation to help pay for a few niceeties theat are used at the water stop such a little heat and power for the sound system as well as few snacks to get thorugh the day.

Your mid week workouts are posted here most will be on the track with those training for Seattle keeping on with hills.

Those on the track plan and really focus on keeping your times at a very even pace. Try to run the same pace every segment of your workout. Also try to keep moving during the workout. Meaning instead of standing for your recovery jog lightly. if you're running 400's with 90 sec recovery jog a half lap (takes about 90 sec to jog a 200 pretty easy)and start into your next one running. WIth cool weather muscles tighten up a bit, by keeing it moving it keeps them loose and creates a smoother transition to your next 400.

I've been posting your workouts for the midweek on here on the site, if you would like to be included please go here an add the events you're training for or add new one. you can do that here.
