Training Runs Start
The official training runs for the race start this weekend (Saturday, January 12). There will be a series of runs organized by Second Wind Running Club. Check out their web site for the details. They will be run on trails around central Illinois and three are on the actual race course (starting at the north fork canoe access parking lot instead of the actual race start/finish at the boat access lot). With warm temperatures and rain predicted over the next couple of days, this weekend's run could be muddy. Saturday morning might be cold enough to keep the ground solid.
