Good Morning Striders!

The calm before whatever Mother Nature is bringing us tomorrow!

Congrats to Catherine McNamara for crushing a new 5k PR this past weekend.
If you or anyone you know has run a PR or significant race accomplishment, please let me know!

PAL XC
The season came to a close this past weekend. A huge shout out to all of the kids, volunteers and especially to the coaches who helped out this year. Coaches: Jennifer Jordan, Julie Fraize, Bryon Hebert, Joe Chrisman, Judy Boire, Kate Hasychak, Pat Nelson, Jen Nelson, Danielle Fischer, Lynda Pintrich, Mike Dunham, Fred Daniels, Tom Cassetty, Steve Theodore.
Thank you!

Social Distance Race
On wednesday Social Distance Race Series Director Scott Rogers and myself gave Marguerite’s Place, Inc. the proceeds of the most recent race series. Because of runners like you, we were able to help an organization in need in our city. Thank you! Stay tuned for future events

We Need You
The Executive Board is looking for new members to join and help shape the direction of our club. We have a few roles opening up, if you are interested please contact myself, stephenrrouleau@gmail.com or a current member of the board.

Awards Dinner
Given the current environment, it’s not feasible for us to hold our annual awards dinner as we usually would. The social team is asking for suggestions on what new awards we could create in place of some of our standard awards that don’t quite fit this year. See Amanda Naro‘s post in the discussion group to leave your suggestions. You just might win a prize if we like your suggestions!

Hope everyone has a safe and happy day!
See you on the roads

Stephen Rouleau
President
