It’s been a great day and the weekend is looking to be
awesome. Low sixties tomorrow morning! How
freaking great is that? Looking forward to getting out there and getting after
it in the morning. Came across something
this week that I thought you hard ass working folks might enjoy. When we
consider all the conveniences in our lives, why on earth would someone CHOOSE
to participate in activities like running or cycling?
“Embracing inconvenience may sound odd, but we already do it
without thinking of it as such. As if to mask the issue, we give other names to
our inconvenient choices: We call them hobbies, avocations, callings, passions.
These are the noninstrumental activities that help to define us. They reward us
with character because they involve an encounter with meaningful resistance —
with nature’s laws, with the limits of our own bodies — as in carving wood,
melding raw ingredients, fixing a broken appliance, writing code, timing waves
or facing the point when the runner’s legs and lungs begin to rebel…”
Let’s get out there tomorrow and build some character. We’re
back at Drake and the C25K group is gonna need some support cause it’s a big
day tomorrow. If you’re in the first
group, consider sticking around for a 15 min run with us!
6:30 – 70 min
7:45 – 30 min
7:45 – 30 min run 15:00 run 15:00 walk

Gonna be an awesome day tomorrow so don’t miss out! We’ll
meet at Oak Grove Elementary for both loops tomorrow. NOT AT DRAKE.
Be on the lookout for some volunteer opportunities coming
soon! Our HNL meetings were really productive last night and we’ve set some reasonable
goals which include some hands on service projects. If you’ve got any ideas, please share!
Race planning is under way. If you want to be part of this
but did not get the email I sent TODAY, you need to let me know ASAP. This is a
thing and it’s happening. No, we don’t know
the distance, date, or location…I guess you could say things are coming right
along. Seriously, if you want to be part of something awesome, let me know
tomorrow. We’ll meet after the run to recap what was said last night with
regard to race planning.
Also, great opportunity for HNL to show out at the Hotlanta
Half. Lindsey will have info for us about staffing a water/cheering
station. We’ve not done much of this so
let’s make a great showing on June 10, 2018.
Here is the run info:
6:30 – 60 min
7:30 – 45 min
Great job last week, folks! Let’s keep the momentum!
7:30 – 30 min :30 walk 3:30 run

Hey! It’s Friday! Got some cool news and stuff so put on
your working face so your co-workers know not to bug you for a few
The weather tomorrow is going to be perfect for
running. There is no reason you shouldn’t
be there! Let’s make it a big group and help a local business while we’re at
it. The loops will be from Drake tomorrow and we need a fearless leader for the
second. Thanks to Emily and David for
leading last week, I got tons of fan mail this week from runners appreciative
of their efforts.
HNL is in the early stages of planning a 2018 road
race. I sent an email to the folks interested
in helping. If you want to be part of this awesome effort, let me know tomorrow
and I’ll get you on the list. I typically write the HNL emails while I’m high
on caffeine so they are charged with synthetic motivation and guaranteed to get
you fired up.
The Dignity Store is also going to have a meetup soon. If
you’d like to help there, now is the time to get with the program and get on
that list as well.
Some of you get all the emails I send! Lucky you!
The HNL board is meeting next week and we’ll hopefully be
revealing some really exciting news about the future of HNL, who we’re helping,
how we look. Stay tuned!
After running tomorrow we're gonna head to Circa's Coffee House in Tyrone to support a great local business!
The run info:
6:30 – 60 min
7:30 – 30 min
Don’t you dare give up on yourself! We’re going to repeat
the same intervals as last week so don’t fret if you missed. We’re hitting the
pause button for you, there is no excuse to not be at the run tomorrow. The best way to get your tail out there is to
commit and be accountable. Get a friend,
declare it publicly, be there!
7:30 – 30 min loop – 1:00 min walk, 3:00 min run

Looks like we’re back at Drake tomorrow for two loops
including a bit of a longer one to start. The C25K group is gonna start a bit
later in the morning so enjoy a tiny sliver of extra sleep! Our fearless leader Emily is going to lead
the first loop on the 10K course followed by the intrepid godfather of HNL,
Disco Davo leading the C25K for your morning serving of fresh miles.
6:30 – 75 min loop
7:45 – 30 min loop - 1:00
min walk, 3:00 run
There are lots of events going on tomorrow morning so the groups may be
a little smaller. Commit to showing up even if your bestest friend can’t. Do it for you!
