After a one year hiatus due to COVID, we are excited to resume participation in Mill Cities Relay, December 5, 2021. The cost for club members is just $10.
Also, save the date for our annual club holiday party, December 3, 2021.
While I could write a nice summary of the race, I’m going to defer to the words of the Cap’n, John Stanzel, from a recent email thread.
“It’s been a while since I have weighed in with my perspective on running, competing–life. Sometimes of course life, be it Covid or cars (as some/most likely know your Cap’n was on the losing end of a bike + car encounter) gets in the way of fitness. But my injuries and Covid are now behind us, & there are no excuses for making some noise at this years Mill Cities Relay on 12/5/21. Before we go any further with this missive, lets be clear on Pete’s assumption “Know that he will be proud of your effort and expect a bit more.” Nope. Pete’s heart is in the right place–but here is what you should know by now — I don’t expect a bit more, I expect a lot more. And nowhere can you exceed your own running expectations than by running a relay race. Running every step knowing that it doesn’t improve your standing in the race like your usual Santa shuffle. No. You are running your best so that you don’t let your teammates down–so that the team score/time is the best it can be. And when GMRC, when your neighborhood running club comes in top three–THEN I will be proud of your effort. Plz mark Dec 5 on your calendar–its been a long 18 months but finally, fitness & camaraderie is calling.” Cap’n John
