TUESDAY SPEED WORKOUT
Held at Pope High School in East Cobb every Tuesday year-round at 6:00 am, please arrive early to warm -up. Someone is always there by 5:45 am, workout begins at 6:00 am.
TUESDAY EVENING GROUP RUN (Visiting run at Big Peach Marietta)
We join our friends at Big Peach Running Co. Marietta every Tuesday for their Evening Group Run. This run begins at 6:30 pm and is held year-round. Multiple distances for runners of all levels and speed.
THURSDAY TEMPO RUN
Every Thursday at 6:00 am, group departs together for warm up at 6:00 am. Currently we alternate between the river and Parkaire Kroger. Our tempo is intended as a threshold run, think of a hard effort that could be sustained for an hour. Needless to say, runners come in different speeds and levels of experience, so we always warm-up and cool down together and runners tend to fall into pace groups for our main set. Even if a runner falls in between groups, we keep it mostly together or within reach of each other.

Comrades was one of the toughest things I have ever done. And if you’re saying “Well – duh” to yourself right now, you’d be right of course. I mean, I knew it would be hard. Running 87km/54miles WAS going to be hard. I was trained and ready for hard, mentally and physically. But it …
