Nothing says cross country like beer and pizza. Maybe because xc harkens back to our college running days in a way that road racing never can. Although for me that might be a stretch since my college xc running days came at the age of 28 when I was not consuming nearly as much beer and pizza as I did my first nonrunning years of college. Either way, Roadkill Racing will be having its preseason xc kick off party on Saturday September 11th at 6 p.m. At the party we will hopefully find out how many people are actual running for RKR and which races we want to focus on. I think it is unlikely we will be able to field a team at all the races, but we should be able to compete in 3-4 out of 5. If you plan on attending please let either me or Mike know and we can get you directions to Mike’s house.
In other news, Mike and I will be running in the Fleet Feet Summerfest 12k at Mendon Ponds this coming Saturday. I am just hoping to run 5:50 pace and have it feel like a reasonable pace to be able to hold for half marathon.
