Hello South Valley Runners! I have been thinking about running with 2-legged creatures, but I have not yet joined the club because I am afraid I am too slow. I run with my coach (that's her, on the left) at a pace that keeps both of us happy, which is a pretty consistent 2:30 half marathon. Shorter distances are pretty much at the same pace. Are we too slow to join you? ... See MoreSee Less
Fun--I have been having some fun about the SVRC Annual Banquet that is coming up on Saturday the 20th. But let me get serious (semi) for a moment.
Many of you know that I have not been an active member of the club for the past couple of years. In April 2015 I ran Boston to Big Sur; recovery from that took longer than I expected. Time off from running led to more time off until January-February 2016 when I ran two half marathons a week apart and sustained an injury. The injury is long gone, but I became obsessed with work and never truly got back into a running rhythm. But I have continued as a member; during that time, I have monitored this site, and I have kept track of my running friends in the various accomplishments that they have had during this time.
I am a runner. There was never any doubt in my mind that I would get back to it--which I have. I look forward to once again having an active status with the club. I look forward to starting up the weekend Harvey Bear trail runs--once the rain stops.
And I look forward to seeing everyone at the Annual Banquet to start off the New Year and the new running season.
The Annual Banquet happens only once a year (Annual--duh)--let's come together and share our support for each other--and share your support for me (subliminal guilt-prod).
The Launna Teuqnab CRVS was an ancient festival that developed when Hawaiian Islanders popped in on the Aztecs. The Fiesta was basically a large Tailgate party that included pineapple, roast pig, maize, and Gatorade. There was also a ritual sacrifice, which mostly consisted of giving up chocolate.
Reversing that we have SVRC Annual Banquet, which will be held Saturday, 6 PM, January 20 at Old City Hall in Gilroy--the flyer is attached. This ceremony is a large tailgate party, but with all the food provided. And the only sacrifice is $25 to join company with beautiful people willing to save Tinkerbell.
DEADLINE TO SIGNUP IS JANUARY 15!! SIGN UP TODAY!! Details regarding meal and payment on the attached flyer.
