Welcome to 2020 and the 1st Achilles Practice of the Decade
|Hoping everyone had a great holiday season. With Christmas and New Year’s both on Wednesday’s we have missed our weekly practices for a few weeks. This week will get us started for the New Year and we couldn’t be more exoited to see everyone back at McCabe Park Community Center Wednesday night at 6:30 PM. Remember to RSVP to Lizzy or Amy so we can do pairings in advance. Also be thinking about your goals and interests for running in the New Year. We will as always have several group races/ events during the year and will end the year with a group travel race (location. TBD). We would love to see folks challenge themselves with a new distance, a new pace, or simply to maintain current fitness levels. Let us know how we can help!|
