ERC Hood To Coast Ragnar Team
Good luck to the ERC team heading out to Portland this weekend for the 200-mile Hood to Coast Ragnar Relay.
Summervals This Week – 1 Mile Repeats
This week a great workout to prepare for a race of every distance from 5k to marathon – the Mile repeats (3-4 intervals).
For August – here are the shirt colors for the groups – this isn’t a fashion statement – just helps the timers spot you more easily.
Group 1- gray or black
Group 2- blue
Group 3 – red, purple or pink
Group 4 – white or yellow
Talking of timers - 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!
Next week at the intervals is pizza night and we have two guests joining us:
Justin Dela Cruz a member of the Chicago Half Marathon Marketing Team and Marc David author of the Addicted Runner. Marc joined us in the winter for a SMLR run and is back is town next week. He will sharing stories of his run streak and selling author signed copies of his book at Temperance.

Run 10 Feed 10 10k – October 28th
Received news this week about an event you might want to add to your dance card. Here are the details:
“Right now 42 million Americans are going hungry. What if you could be part of the solution? All you have to do is RUN!
For the sixth year, Women’s Health magazine and FEED are asking Americans to run for a cause with RUN 10 FEED 10, a philanthropic race series that donates meals to people in YOUR community.
The concept is simple: run a 10K and feed 10 hungry people in your hometown. Since 2012, we’ve raised over 5 million meals, and this year we want you to get involved.
We would like to offer your club a $10 discount to participate in this year’s Chicago run. Use promo code R10CHICITY for the discount. Join us this fall as we hit the pavement in the fight against domestic hunger.
For more information, visit RUN10FEED10.com, or reach out to email@example.com with any questions.”
