My friend Stephanie coaches a group of runners on Thursday nights: recreational athletes who want to push themselves once a week in a workout of some sort.

She’s moving to Flagstaff and leaving me behind (sniff, sniff) and her runners will be coachless.  The past few weeks I’ve going her team to do training runs while they tempo (we match up at about 7:30 pace) and I really like them.  They are a tight knit group that warms up and cools down together, they work hard and have great attitudes..  PLUS, they meet for beers after practice.  My kind of team (in my post professional life).

I like the PR Club so much that I’m taking over for Steph for the next three Thursdays.  If it works with my training, I’ll consider sticking with it through the Spring.
