• Imagine what real training could do • [1½ MIN READ] Last week (#201), I was seriously pondering an unplanned marathon for 16’U (Coastal Delaware Running Festival, Rehoboth Beach).

A Little Conditioning Can Be a Dangerous Thing (#201: 2023’04’12’W)

• A possible upcoming marathon in point • [1½ MIN READ] Broad Street (04’30’U) has been the motivation for getting various Growlers to push harder the last few weeks (Training).

He Who Shall Not Be Pictured (#198: 2023’03’22’W)

• Sometimes, the harder you try… • [1 MIN READ] There’s one person who’s virtually made a running career with the club by not being around for the picture but showing up eventually to run anyway. If we stall our departure from the store, we can occasionally catch him. Sometimes we’re right and sometimes we’re … More He Who Shall Not Be Pictured (#198: 2023’03’22’W)
