Join us for our weekly long run 8:00 am Saturday at China Camp in Marin.

This week’s run is a practice run and course preview for the Marin Half Marathon on April 29. We’ll met at the turnoff to Back Ranch Meadows on North San Pedro Rd. Google the directions, it’s about 20-25 minutes from the Golden Gate bridge.

You can park on the side of the road. The runs will take you on the second half of the Marin Half course, on he trail out to McNear’s Beach and back on N. San Pedro Road.

Look for Patrick, he will be our run leader tomorrow. Your humble president is not yet allowed to run on trails as he rehabs. We’ll have runs ranging from 3 miles to 10 miles. We have found this run is great practice for the trail part of this race, and gives you some familiarity with the course. It’s also a beautiful run through the forest and along the Bay.

Join us for our weekly long run 8:00 am Saturday, April 14 at the Sports Basement in the Presidio.

NOTE: we have postponed our practice run in Marin for Marin Half Marathon to next Saturday, April 21. Apologies for any inconvenience, but our two team leaders for the Marin run cannot make it this week.

For those running Marin, we have scheduled 8-10 miles. For those on the SF Marathon training program, we have a down week with 8 miles on the schedule. We will also have a shorter distance, 5-6 miler for those looking for a social run.

Good luck to Penny, who’s running a 50k on Sunday (!), which is merely a practice run for her 100k coming up in the Miwok 100 on May 5.

Hope to see you all out there in the sunshine! The rain is over!

Join us for our weekly long run 8:00 am Saturday, April 7 at Sports Basement in the Presidio. Might be a bit wet, but it should be warm. They don’t call it the Pineapple Express for nothing!

For those running the Marin Half, we are three weeks out, so this weekend should be you last long run before tapering. We have routes of 12 and 14 miles for you. For those starting out on a an 19-week program for San Francisco Half and Full Marathon, we are in week 2, with a long run of 9-10 miles.

For everyone else, we have a run of 5-7 miles. Given the potential for rain, and the chance that it will come from the west, we have our courses heading east, at least at the start.

A couple of necessary shout-outs:

David and Lisa are just two weeks away from the London Marathon!

Reiner is just three weeks out from the Hamburg Marathon!

And Penny and Ramona are just four weeks out from from the Miwok 100k! Did I mention 100k?!

Join us for our weekly long run 8:00 am Saturday, March 24 at Duboce Park Cafe.

For those in training for the Marin Half, we have the first of the two longest runs in the training cycle. For the novice program, the mileage is 10 (first time in double digits!) and for the intermediate program, the mileage is 15, the first of two 15 milers.

Your humble president is still on the mend and has been told not to run just yet, so I’ll be going for a brisk walk from the start. Please join me if that’s more your speed, I’d love to have the company.

Join us for our weekly long run 8:00 am Saturday, March 10 at Duboce Park Cafe, on the southeast corner of Duboce Park.

Good luck to David S running the Modesto Marathon this Sunday!

For those training for the Marin Half, the mileage this week is 8 miles for the novice program and 14 miles for the intermediate program. We’ll also have a 6-miler and a 10-miler for those training for spring marathons.

Special invitation to those looking for an alternative to running for the next few weeks: your club president (me!) will be doing a vigorous 1-2 hour walk during the Saturday runs, and I would welcome the company of anyone who wants to get in a good walk: runners looking to get back into the swing, your friends, your family, even your dog!

You may ask why – I broke my clavicle (again) and underwent surgery to fix it properly on Monday. So I can walk but I shouldn’t run for a couple of weeks. Power walk!
