And the winner is...Blackhawk Boys. I have mixed feelings about the name, but I'm happy they chose it, and they seem to like it. Well, about half of them like it.
If you recall, I made reference to a cool T-Shirt give away if you came up with the winning name. So, without further ado, the winner of the Boys Running Club Name Contest is....
NONE OF YOU.
AND ALL OF YOU.....
Yep, even though the name was thought up by the boys, if you took the time to comment on this blog I would like to give you a small gift. It's my way of saying thank you for your support and encouragement. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address and I will send you several packets of each of these:
Since I am going camping this weekend, I'm doing my 20 Mile Progression Run this afternoon. I tend to have difficulty building slowly and gradually to a faster pace throughout a long run, which is unfortunate because this is exactly the type of race plan I'm hoping to execute next month.
So, today's run is important practice.
Wish me luck!
