North Shore Distance Running Club Newsletters

Greetings Fellow Runners –

We’re reaching the final weeks of our Winter 2017 season. This Saturday will be our last time running in Lake Forest until December.

Last week’s and this week’s run – Last Saturday was forgettable and uneventful, which is perfect for a cutback or taper run. This Saturday won’t be forgettable and uneventful, but it will be a cutback, taper, or recovery run. We’ll remember it because it will be our last run from Lake Forest for over 6 months. It will be eventful because it will be uncomfortable. It’s forecast to be damp, windy, and cold. Fortunately, we’ll only be out in the elements for a short period s everyone is scheduled to run the 8 mile Lake Bluff Loop. Join us before this Saturday’s run to wish good luck to those running the Wisconsin and Flying Pig Marathons.

Congratulations and good luck – Congratulations to Gary Segal, who ran the Illinois Marathon on Saturday. Good luck to Jeannette Danielle and Volker Fischer, who are running...

Greetings Fellow Runners –

It’s an exciting time of year for distance runners. We’re at the cusp of many spring marathons and half marathons, with some already run. It’s so exciting, that I can’t wait to get to the meat of the newsletter.

Last week’s and this week’s run – There’s not much to say about last week’s cutback or taper run in nice conditions, so I won’t say much. Some people are running as long as 22 miles this weekend, with others running less as indicated below:

Illinois / Big Sur – 9.8 mile Southern Trail (taper, may optionally head straight back up bike path for 9 total)

Flying Pig / Wisconsin – 22.2 miles: 9.8 mile Southern Trail plus 8 mile Lake Bluff Loop plus 4.4 mile College Loop

Congratulations and good luck – Congrats to Lexie Markarian who ran a near PR of 4:05:37 at the Veronia Marathon in Oregon last weekend. Good luck to current NSDRC members Ajay Koul, Brad Muender, Chris Muender, Joan Rush, Julie Pfeffer, Kim Monk, Paige Douglas,...
