      Nicole, the "Coffee Group" meets basically until the Capital Striders runs start again from Drake in mid January. This was our second time at GFC so we won't be meeting there again until next fall/winter. We rotate which shops we start from. If you are interested and will be around next Saturday, we are starting from Mars Café on the Drake campus off University and start at 7:00. If you can't make that one, our run on January 3rd will start from Smokey Row. We would love to have you join us!

      Thanks, Andrea! My BQ is 3:40 and I'm trying to go for 3:38 to give myself that "cushion". Thanks, Kraig! 800s are always daunting for me.

      Thank you, Stephanie! You are so kind. It has taken me a while to get comfortable (or at least somewhat comfortable) at this pace.
