Such a busy weekend! Get your minds right!
The newest couch to 5K (C25K) training program starts Saturday! The program is for anybody wanting to build to a 3 mile run. It's going to sweaty fun times and a great program for parents and kids alike. DO NOT DROP YOUR KIDS OFF. We can barely tolerate our own kids much less the kinds of kids parents want to drop off with a group of strangers. This is going to be lots of fun and ANYONE who has the ability to run can do it. We'll start with a ratio of 2:00 running and 2:00 walking then slowly build to less walking and more running eventually transitioning to large blocks of running and small ones of walking. Click the C25K tab above to get all the details. Make the commitment to the program and get this summer started right!
I've got the Run HNL shirts for those who ordered! Do not make me carry these damn things in my car for months. Anybody who doesn't pick up their shirt by Labor Day will have it auctioned to the highest bidder.
On Monday, HNL will host the Memorial Day Murph at Drake. 1 mile run, 300 air squats, 200 push ups, 100 pull ups, 1 mile run. Can't do it? Come out and do the Memorial Day Smurph, all the stuff above with half the squat, push up, and pull up reps. This is always a great event. We start at 7:00 on Monday. Be there.
I've signed us up for a float in the PTC 4th of July parade. There are some differing schools of thought on what "parade float" means. We need to come up with a super cool idea. I love the idea of a sufferfest of sweat and work pulling a jeep and carrying rucks while throwing sweat-soaked koozies to the crowd. Some people want to clog on a flatbed trailer. Whatever. I need your help! Ideas please!
Hotlanta Half water stop staffing confirmed! We're gonna be the mile 5 water stop. Show your intention to attend on the FB event! We need people! Got a big van? We need it!
All the rest: HNL's level up grant ends this weekend. If you know some young person who wants to start a business this summer, better have them enter quick at www.hnlinc.org. The Dignity Store visioning still needs a conference room, if you've got the space, we have precisely $0 to pay but we're nice people! Ruck HNL stickers are a thing and if you want one, I'll get you one. RUN HNL magnets are still a thing and I can sell you one for $5.
