5k Challenge

Any female volleyball players interested in a 5k run this August?!?!!  I am issuing a 5k challenge!  Options for the race:

August 10th trail run through Pheasant Branch Conservatory on the north side of Lake Mendota:

August 16th Java Jog in Stoughton:

Here is a link to training plans, with various levels - most of you will probably want beginner, some may try the intermediate option:

*You will need running shoes for this, rather than volleyball shoes.

IF YOU PLAN TO JOIN, send Coach Sharon an e-mail!!!!  We will then coordinate the group, perhaps be able to get a group discount for the race entry (depending on numbers participating), and also we will get a t-shirt commemorating your achievement!!  (Plus, you get a shirt and other things directly from the race!)

We will also coordinate at least one group training run per week, likely before or after open gym on either Tuesday or Friday.  It's only an additional 15-30 minutes to make this happen :)
