September Commitment Member: again a draw - between Nick, Bridget and Anita! Anita was drawn out on the day, big congrats Anita - free massage for you too!
August Challenge Member: she is always there, giving everything a go, including our trail runs, Nerang races, sessions, and boot camps! Well Done Irene - a free Shoes Feet Gear analysis coming your way!
September Challenge Member: after coming back from injury to apply herself for the last 6 months before Airlie was a challenge in itself, let alone completing the event! Well done Janet for your determination! Thanks to Shoes Feet Gear for your prize.
Now our coveted awards:
2014: Most Improved - this year went to Libby who has gone from not being able to run 12months ago - joining the beginners group, competed in heaps of events over the last 6 months and just finished the 28km in Airlie - well done!
2014: Most Consistent - was Lisa P!!! being eligible month after month for Commitment Member of the month was just the beginning! Lisa was consistent in her approach to training, events, and commitment to BRS Camp and On Tour ! well done
2014: Runners Runner! Nick M!! Remember this one is voted by the runners, not coaches and Nick is a deserved winner, constantly inspiring others to come to training, better their running, and commit!! Keep it up Nick!!
Well we have had a new addition to Southbank's breaky scene recently - Cowch Cafe !!
They have been kind enough to offer us 18 FREE coffee vouchers as an incentive to come in and try their new breakfast menu, how can you refuse that!!
So this Saturday we will be running from Southbank - the first 18 runners to arrive at training receive a free coffee!!
When: Saturday 11th October
Where: Meet on the steps of the Southbank Surf Club at Streets Beach, Southbank
Parking: Park underneath Southbank for $2 - in after 5am and out by 9am!! Remember to park in the middle of the carpark and exit near Max Brenners! Then you will easily find us!
What: Long run or run + park run or as long as you wish to run in the 1.5hrs depending on your current goals!
BREAKY & COFFEE
As I mentioned, the first 18 to arrive at training will receive a free coffee at Cowch for breaky!
So we are able to have a relaxing breaky and be out by 8:50am to leave the carpark - I am again taking pre-orders and dropping them off to the cafe at 7:30am. Please browse the menu and I will have a copy Saturday before we run so you can note your meal and coffee order then!
Some love it (like me), some hate it (like Matt), regardless, it is soon to be upon us!!
We can make the most of the longer days for our night runs, and the hotter Saturdays for post race dips!!
Most of all....don't be scared off!
To us at BRS, Summer running in Brisbane is all about post season maintenance, getting stronger, and having fun!
So you will notice our sessions will have a flare of strength and conditioning to get you stronger, longish sets to keep up your running fitness, and a little more light hearted than if we were in the midst of the long distance running season (aka winter!!).
We hope to see you all there to finish the year off being committed and challenged.
Renae & Matt
