MARCH Inspire Us
Michael K inspired us in February by his story of how running has changed his life. Reading his story you can imagine potentially where he would be physically and mentally today if he hadn't taken the running plunge to reap the rewards of physical health, friendships, and amazing experiences!! Michael is the only BRSer that has joined us on ALL BRS on Tours (Cook Islands, Sydney, Phuket, and Airlie Beach) and has expressed interest for Hawaii! Thanks so much Michael you are a legend!
So......would you like to be our March guest blogger? You too can inspire like Michael did and also win a free one hour massage with RechargeHQ !
- your life before running, how you got into running, what kept you running, any new views on running/exercise· How did running positively impact your life
· How BRS help to get you, keep you, motivate you to run (hopefully we did!!)
· If you could offer one piece of inspiration/advice - like a one liner to people out there to motivate them to start, continue, come back to running what would it be?
We would love to hear from you! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be our March inspiration.
This Saturday was pegged as a Trail Running Day.....HOWEVER we have options for you!!!
OPTION 1: AM: Twilight 10km/Half Marthon Reccy
I know many of you are doing the Twilight Run and some for the first time! Every year we do the course a few weeks out as a refresher and as a reccy for those new to the event. So join us:
When: Saturday 7th March
Where: Meet in the Athletics Track Carpark (opposite the track!)
Followed by Breaky and Coffee!!
OPTION 2: PM: 8km Cross Country Event 1- Mitchelton
To cater for our Trail run this week and to ensure we continue to train on different types of terrain, BRS will be present at the Queensland Running Cross Country event this Saturday.
So lets try something a little different and support a not-for profit running organisation!
QUEENSLAND RUNNING IS A TRULY UNIQUE community-based not-for-profit CROSS COUNTRY CONCEPT that offers low cost opportunities for serious athletes and activity seekers of all ages to participate regularly in a friendly, supportive and safe off-road environment!
Participation in Queensland Running is UNRESTRICTED. Anyone wishing to be involved, either in cross country competition or as an assistant in our daily operation may do so. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY.
The secret of Queensland Running's success lies in its simplicity. The condensed format of its regular winter competitions, covers distances from 500 metres to 8000 metres in which runners of all ages can compete side-by-side at their own pace over distances of their choosing. The cross country season commences on the first Saturday in March and runs to the last Saturday in July.
When: Saturday 7th March
ENTRY & Warm UP: Meet at 2pm to enter (or grab your number if you enter on-line which is recommended) and warm up.
RACE START: 8000km 2:40pm however, they have various distances. Check out the program page for all events and start times.
Where: Teralba Park, Mitchelton. The start/finish line is located in the Pullen Road / Teralba Street corner of the park. Teralba Park has several covered picnic areas with rotundas, electric barbecues, a toilet block and children's play area.
What: A well-grassed and relatively flat, fast course featuring an uphill section during the first 150 metres, followed by a 250 metre descent to the flat section which comprises half the 2000 metre main perimeter course. 500, 800, 1000 and 1500 metre distance loops are inner loops.
Competitors in 1500 metre and longer distances have to negotiate another steady climb and a short steep descent. The 2000 metre course has a continuous unsheltered 1200 metre stretch. Meetings are usually run in an anti-clockwise direction.
There are several vantage points which allow coaches and spectators to follow the progress of races without hampering the runners.
Entry: They recommend you email your entry before Saturday to help speed up the process as per this page. See their entry page for more details. http://www.queenslandrunning.com.au/weekly-comp/entries.html
P.S. if you are planning on doing more, I would recommend joining as a Season Member ($12), then your weekly entry fee is less & the process each week is speedier. Check out the page for more info.
We hope to see many of you there! and remember there are smaller distances if the kids or non-running friends are interested!
