Manzanita Pace Setters

So I have been thinking about our runs and weekly courses and I have an idea, let’s have a ½ of dozen runs that are our regular routes and we just rotate through them weekly. This way we get to know our runs and start getting some times that we can work with and a familiarity with the courses.

I made a list that covers most area, if you have any suggestions please send them my way!

 

  • Park Loop
  • Reed Road Out and Back
  • Pine Ridge Loop
  • Beach
  • Manzanita Neighborhood
  • Sea Forest

 

Each of these courses will have an option of 3, 4 and 5plus miles, I will get these all put together in the next couple weeks. Also it’s come up that it might be fun to mix it up and meet in a different location once in awhile, this could be an issue for those folks that might show up and are not on this email list but I could leave a note on the door explaining.

I was thinking it would be cool to meet down by the boat ramp in the state park and going out the trail that takes you to the jetty; it’s a real nice flat packed sand trail and is beautiful in the early morning.

Or we could meet at the trail head for Falcon Point (when it dries up a bit).

Or the trail head for Neahkahnie Mnt

Or down at the boat ramp on 101 and doing Tideland Road, its flat, beautiful and no traffic.

Etc….

 

Mixing it up is really fun and motivating!

 

Not sure if you guys followed the Boston Marathon but it was an amazing race for the woman, if you have 10 minuets watch this, very inspiring!

Plus the 3rd place female finisher is a local Portland gal!

It’s the Reed Road Route.

 See you on Saturday morning!

Yours in good health,

Janice

A Yoga Class in Cannon Beach

 

This is about a Yoga Class in Cannon Beach; I wanted to add it to my Blog because I have consistently heard very good things about this teacher. Her name is Sarah Fawn, she teaches only in Seaside and Cannon Beach.

There are also some very good classes at North County Recreation District building in Nehalem, just 2 miles south of Manzanita.

I will post the schedule soon, promise!

Manzanita Pace Setters

Last week while I was getting dressed to go running with MPS it was down pouring, not just raining but really raining, Mike was thinking “no way” and I was thinking “I have to go, I have a commitment to you and our club and I actually felt like running so what the heck.”  I was able to convince Mike to go by encouraging him and telling him how good he would feel when he was done and that a “little” rain is not a big deal, feels good on your skin and is very refreshing.

 

There is something about being out in the elements that feeds our soul in a special way.

 

Of course it does help to wear the right clothing.

If you have any questions about layering and the comfortable way to dress for a variety of weather and temperature conditions just let me know. I love this topic and I have affection for modern fabrics and how they help us be more comfortable, enhance movement and even help us prevent injury.

 

As nature is so unpredictable when we arrived to meet the other “brave” souls that showed up, the rain stopped and the skies got a bit brighter and we had a great time, in fact Mike said it was the best run he had had this year and felt super.  We also noticed everyone had bright smiles on their faces!

 

So next time you have an “opportunity” to push yourself past your comfort zone and get outside into what appears to be uncomfortable elements you might very well be surprised by the rewards.!

I highly encourage you to try; you know “just do it”!

 

This weeks w,j,r is a friendly loop through the golf course trail off of 3rd street and down to the park.

I noticed that some of the walkers are now jogging a bit and up hill, that is awesome, I am proud of you! So lets all try this a bit, push yourself some either in distance or pace. This week’s courses are perfect for either.

Update on Manzanita Pace Setters

Hi Pacers,Yesterday Mike and I took the food we have collected in just two weeks of Manzanita Pace Setters, it amounted to 65 pounds! The North County Food Bank is thrilled and so are we, great job. Not only are we all taking better care of ourselves we are helping others and having fun to boot! What more can you ask for? Well actually since you ask... When at the North County Food Bank I had the opportunity to meet Tony, she is in charge of The Norht County Clothing Bank, which also takes other house hold items like pots and pans. So I am now adding to the collection of food any other items you may want to give to others that are in need. You can now bring with you clean folded unwanted clothing, shoes, or kitchen utensils. Mike and I are happy to take these items with us to the North County Clothing Bank while we are taking the collected food to the North County Food Bank. Thank you for you participation and please call me if you have any comments or questions about this program or the MPS club. warm regards, Janice
