Our Fall for the Half Wits training program for the Lewis & Clark Half Marathon kicks off this next Saturday, August 4! Please join us for this fun plan as we prepare for our next half marathon with a "mini" version of the Half Wits.
Beginning this week, we'll meet on Saturday mornings, 6:30 a.m. (hey...it's summer!) on the south side of the Old State Capitol Plaza (Adams Street between 5th and 6th streets) in downtown Springfield. There is plenty of street parking downtown at that hour...and you do not have to feed the meters because it is a Saturday.
After our runs will reconvene at Cafe Moxo (on Adams between 4th and 5th) for coffee and breakfast. Springfield's great farmer's market also takes place on Saturday mornings.
We won't be organizing group runs during the week (like we do for the full Half Wits), but we'll get together for long runs over six weekends...then it will be race weekend!
Our long runs will be: 10 miles (Aug. 4); 11 miles (Aug. 11); 6.2 miles (Abe's Amble, Sunday, Aug. 19), 12 miles (Aug. 25); 13.1 miles (LM course, Sep. 1); 7 miles (Sep. 8); Lewis & Clark Half marathon (Sunday, Sep. 16).
I'll try to incorporate places for water stops into our runs (parks, YMCA, Fit Club, etc...) and I'll try to have Gatorade at a couple of the stops.
