Evanston – We’re Out Walking (WOW) Initiative

 

Thanks to Al White for manning the ERC booth at the Evanston We’re Out Walking (WOW) expo yesterday.

 

Summervals – Ladder

 

Nancy’s workout this week is the legendary ladder: 400-800-1200-1220-800-400

Ideal preparation for the Jubilee Jog 5k and Race Against Hate.


Please consider donating an hour of your time on a Wednesday evening track workout at ETHS
. Nancy Rollins, who generously spends EVERY Wednesday evening with the ERC, needs one or two timers for most weeks this season.  (Don’t forget you can still do the workout with Nancy in the morning!)  If you are injured this is a great way for you to stay connected to the club. Thanks!
