The hardcore group.

As Coach Jeff recalled last night, on the 2009 marathon team there were a handful of people we called “the hardcore group” after they ran the 18-mile tune-up in freezing, pouring rain, even when the coaches told them to stay home and stay dry.

Well, there’s a new hardcore group.

These crazies came out in 97 degree (heat index 107) temps for their weekly Thursday run. Clearly, they mean business.

We shortened from the standard 5 miles to 3.5 and took a gatorade break between loops, but we still cranked it out, and at a clip, I might add. I was very impressed with everyone! (Myself included :))

On that note, though, PLEASE don’t run outside today. A day off won’t kill you, but a run might.

Have a safe, fun, beachy, cold-beer-filled weekend! And good luck to everyone doing the NYRR Long Training Run tomorrow. Drink lots of water and gatorade!
