Our last new member to the team was added this morning in Eric Wallor.  Eric has his own on-line book business plus is the coach at Harper College and ran 2:26 in the Chicago Marathon in 2012.

I am putting an order in for new uniforms this weekend; once in we will get the screened and get them out to you asap.  I am looking at having everyone get together on a Sunday in January to meet new members on the team, hand out uni's and just go over a few things...thinking of somewhere centrally located for people who live north, south and in the city...how does that sound?

Lastly, I am in the process of putting together a facebook page for the team (which will be private).  As soon as I have it set up; I will send everyone an invite and we can use that for practice times, updates, etc......

Hope all is well...

Hope everyone is healthy and getting back into the swing of it.  We should be putting an order for new uniforms by the end of this week; I will be contacting everyone for sizes.  A few quick things...

-for starters, we have added another new woman to our team; Christy Peterson.  she ran 2:52 last year at the Chicago Marathon and is really looking forward to having a group to train and race with....

-just an idea; feedback would be great...i think the blog worked pretty well this year but what if we did the same type of thing but had it on facebook instead?  everyone has facebook so it's one less thing to check plus if we need to upload any pics it's much easier....thoughts???

-looking at starting up practice again late january; sound ok???\

Have a good day!

Hope everyone is doing well and getting back into the swing of things...

I am currently working on uniforms for next year; once we find something I will be contacting everyone for sizes.  Also, we have a new member to our team; Kathryn Hague.  Kathryn is a nurse in Chicago and coaches at Lewis University; we are happy to have her on the team.

Happy Turkey Day to everyone!

I know that many of you guys are getting ready for Chicago and may have done your last long run already (sorry Pat).  If people still want to meet; please post.  Since the Prairie Path is in the middle I would say let's meet there again Sunday morning.  Kristen is doing 20+ if anyone is getting in another long run.  I will have a bike there again for water/gel if anyone needs me to carry.

Again, please post if you want to meet up on Sunday.  Thanks!

Hope everyone had a good week.  Practice this Sunday same bat time, same bat channel (in english, 630am @ prairie path in elmhurst).  I will have my bike again to hand out fluids to anyone who may need them.  Please post if you are coming.

Lastly, best of luck to Jared this Sunday in the Marathon!!!

Have a great Friday!
