Anyone Up For A Relay?

Congratulations to everyone who participated in Ironman CDA and a special shout out to those Flying Irish volunteers!  The weekend also saw the end to the Rio 2016 Summer Games where honorary Flying Irish member, Bernard Lagat, took 5th in the Men’s 5000m!

Spokane to Sandpoint is upon us and to celebrate 200 miles of awesome relay, be sure to wear your S2S shirts to the run this Thursday.  Check-in for Spokane to Sandpoint will be 4pm-9pm at the Red Lion River Inn patio too.  Convenient!  The course map dropped last week, and you can check it out here!

This week, to recover from Ironman CDA and to prepare for Spokane to Sandpoint, we’ll have a nice flat run to Mission Park and Fleet Feet will have Saucony shoes for us to try!  All this, plus after run hydration courtesy of Waddell’s Brewing Co!  See you at 6:00 PM this Thursday at Ripples!
