The long road of winter training is coming to an end and RRKC is Rocking IT


We are coming into the last few weeks of our spring training session. All that hard work over the winter is coming to fruition with many PR's and successful races this spring for RRKC runners. Most recently, Allison P. finished second place in her age division and fifth overall at the Oklahoma Memorial Marathon this weekend with a 3:23 and BQ!

Amy S. finished fourth in her age group at the Trolley run and Pat placed 7th in his age group running in 26:15. Congrats to all those who finished the Garmin half marathon: Dave R., Michelle A., Allison S. broke 1:50 and Greg shaved a minute per mile off between the first two halves of the Heartland Series.

Coming Up

But the training is it's not quite over yet...we have one more speed session and three more formal long runs as well as a few more local half marathon races; we need more runners for the Race Across America!

Speed work this week is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. at Franklin Park. The weather center is predicting a severe storm outbreak for that evening so please stay tuned to the website and follow us on Twitter @roadrunnerskc for last minute changes. 

Amy S. is in charge of our 10-mile long run this weekend. It will start at 7:00 a.m. at the Olathe Hyvee. Trust the training!

Good luck to JJ at the Illinois Marathon this weekend. And to Mo, Melody, Pat, Jen K. and Coach Amy - may you have wings at the Flying Pig on Sunday!
