Coach Jim’s free group long run for Saturday, December 26, 2015

Avoid the post-holiday shoppers and go for a peaceful run instead this Dec. 26. Photo from Coach Jim’s facebook.

This Saturday brings the last Coach Jim run of the calendar year (but don’t worry, they continue into 2016). This week, the crew is running a total of fourteen miles spread out between two loops from Pizza Roma in Woodstock.

When: Saturday, December 26, 2015

What time: The run starts at 8a. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early so the run can start on time.

Where: Pizza Roma at 4715 SE Woodstock

How far & how fast: There are two loops. The first loop is  about 8.5 miles and the second loop is about 6 miles. Exact paces will vary but there are usually groups training for a 3:30 – 5:00 marathon finish time.

Bring your own hydration and nutrition, dress for the weather, and come ready to make some new friends! Please note, pace group leaders are experienced runners and would love to answer any questions you have about pacing, fueling, recovery, etc. They’re basically awesome. And they’re also volunteers, so say “thanks” after the run.

I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
