New Monday Night Tempo Run Added!

Have you thought about adding a tempo run to your weekly schedule but the speed requirements for the High Performance Training group are a bit beyond your current skill level? If so we’ve got a group for you! Coach Joe Emerson will lead a new weekly Monday night tempo run! The meets at North Meade Street Park (same spot as SLR).

The tempo run is a great way to build strength and speed and to get you used to running at your race pace.

We hope to run with you on Monday nights!
