How is it already time for the Iron Horse?!? Not only is this a big weekend because of the race, it is also the weekend we celebrate the LRL turning TWO! We’ve been at this for two years already! I couldn’t be more excited or more proud of us. So here’s how we’re going to celebrate!
Saturday, October 12
Pleasant Ridge Park
We’ll have our birthday-shakeout-oatmeal run at Pleasant Ridge Park. (Take Sir Barton on the opposite side of Man O’War from Hamburg. It’ll be on your left once you pass all of the restaurants and a few houses.) This is just to get in 2 miles or so to wake up our legs after a week of taper – walking or running. Don’t want to run the day before the Iron Horse? That’s okay! Just show up about 8:20 or so for festivities!
I’ll be bringing a crockpot (or two) of oatmeal. I’ll also bring bowls and spoons. You guys bring toppings. It is a great time, friends. One of my favorite runs of the year. I love our events!
Sunday, October 13
We’ll meet for our picture before the half at 7:30 on the steps of the men’s shop catty-cornered from Darlin’ Jean’s. This is a little out of the way from the start line, so I think it is a good place to meet. We’ll take our picture and then head down to the start.
Once you finish the race, hang around the finish line. Last year, we cheered in every single runner. It was an amazing experience. There were tears on several occasions. It is a time not to be missed.
Not running IHHM? We have a water station and could use your help! Interested in working the water station? Leave a comment here and I’ll pass your info on to our Water Station Coordinator! (Fancy title for you, Lauren!)
I’ll see you all this weekend!
