Lost of talk about Spring track…is it really spring yet??

Hello all!!

Quick update on spring track!  Please pass along to those who may not be ‘subscribed’ to the AARC website to receive email updates or have not been introduced to FB.  (subscribe link on the home page, bottom middle)

Track workouts officially start April 5th.  Please note, as the water is not turned on yet, track is at 5:30pm only!!  When we receive an update, you will be the first to know!  

As most of you who read the last announcement know, Ed has retired as coach.  We still need to confirm our morning coach but have not yet received any takers for a pm coach.  If run exactly like the previous years, we have all the weekly work outs.  Essentially, this person needs to show up with the clock (charged), the workout on a clipboard and press go.  We hope we have someone more into it than that… :-). We also would love to have ED show you the ropes before he runs away…get it?!

Dues for the 2017 season are due.  $30 single membership and $35 family membership.  Your are exempt if you joined late last year or paid your dues at the Holiday party.

Christmas in the city.org/boston marathon

Hello all, 

A received a note from long time AARC member Geno Dube tonight.  What Geno says in his email to me describes this post and the reason for it perfectly.  “I do believe that this is an act of kindness.  It’s also a reminder that even as athletes life is simply unpredictable”

This April 17, 2017, I plan to run in the 121st B.A.A. Boston Marathon. I ran my first of several Boston Marathons in 1988 and this one may be the most important. I am running in honor of my friend Richard “Ratt” Kennedy. He is a longtime marathoner, and for over 20 years we have trained for “The Boston” together. He is a longtime Physical Therapist mentor, and also battling ALS. As the disease continues to progress and unfortunately succeed in taking a great friend away from us, I want to run in Ratt’s honor and raise awareness for ALS research.

Also, the foundation of my career as a Physical Therapist began in Boston working with Kennedy Brothers Physical Therapy. This wonderful organization has helped so many thousands of patients, and thousands of non-patients in the greater Boston area. Jake and Sparky Kennedy started a wonderful event called Christmas In The City that donates, through volunteers and 100% full donations, food, fun, gifts, music etc. to thousands of extremely wonderful and extremely poor children to give them at least 1 day of joy in the year they would otherwise never receive. Please help me to raise the needed goal of $7,000 to help these great kids and to boost my training for this year’s Boston Marathon. I know we can do this together! Thank you for all your help, support and motivation! – Amin

Tonight’s Board Meeting Postponed!!

Hey everyone! We are rescheduling tonight’s board meeting. We did not receive any comments on the website announcement (you can ‘subscribe’ to receive emails for announcement and events if you are looking for automatic notification instead of relying on FB). As well, no comments on the FB post.

With the spring storm coming our way, folks may need to get stuff done…abundance of food to keep you strong as you run around your driveway’s with your shovels. The reschedule will also give us a bit more time to look into the cost (or no cost) of some things other clubs may offer.

As a gentle reminder, memberships due’s…are due if you did not pay at the Holiday Party. (this does not apply to new members who signed up late last year)
$30 Single and $35 family.

Enjoy the snow…I mean really, what can you do?!

AARC Board meeting 3-13-2017

Happy Sunday Funday!

As a reminder, there is a board meeting tomorrow night, March 13th @ the Stark Brewing company, 6pm.  Just a few reminders from the last announcement below.  Stay warm today!!

We are looking for a new coach or a few to share the duties.  We have all the workouts from previous years, but there is also potential to change it up depending on who is interested etc. .  What about you?  Interested?  You can send me an email directly @ oconnorkathleen@comcast.net or on use the ‘Contact us’ link on our website.  

More potential – we are always looking for new ideas for AARC.  I have been researching other clubs, some of who have one big race a year to support efforts such as an online store for club running gear, weekend group runs hosted from members homes or local park etc. .  If you have some idea’s that you think might be great for our club, please share with us at our next board meeting 6pm, Monday March 13th, Stark Brewing company (formerly Milly’s Tavern).    As well if you are interested in joining the board, we are happy to have you!  And we are really happy to have you implement the idea’s you have.  

The good, the sad, and the potential….

Hello All!!  We hope everyone is having a great winter!  For those not a fan of winter running, the good is…’spring’ track workouts start on April 5th!!  For those of you who are excited to see Coach ED, well, that is the sad.  Ed is retiring as the Coach of AARC to spend more time with his grandkids, 2 of who will enter the world in 2017!  Three lucky kids will have the worlds only au pair who is not a foreign women helping with child care in exchange for a room. (per the dictionary)  We will miss ED, especially those who swim open water in the summer and have had Ed as a life guard and friend keeping an eye on us while on his paddle board.  

Ok so the potential…we are looking for a new coach or a few to share the duties.  We have all the workouts from previous years, but there is also potential to change it up depending on who is interested etc. .  What about you?  Interested?  You can send me an email directly @ oconnorkathleen@comcast.net or on use the ‘Contact us’ link on our website.
