In my last post, I talked about our excitement for 2011 initiatives. One of those is to have more of a presence in Baltimore and to have training there for new and existing TEAM FIGHT members. As I have just finished my second week at UCF, we are ready to starting running in Baltimore.
This coming week, we are going to do a TEAM FIGHT run on Tuesday morning and in the coming weeks, we will grow upon that one day and add two more days – most likely Thursday and Saturday morning runs. We will have a more formal schedule in place and up on our training calendar in mid February.
If you KNOW you want to run this Tuesday morning with TEAM FIGHT, email me! OR if you are suffering from the mid-winter blues and can’t fathom getting on your running shoes and going out for a morning run in this cold, maybe this will help:
