Peg’s Posts: national running day/week


Track Meet 2009 002 Hope you had a chance to celebrate the inaugural national running day on June 3. For many of us at Garmin, it’s been more like a week-long celebration of our favorite sport. Every evening — through high temps, low temps and rain — runners of all ages and skill levels have convened at a local track complex for the Kansas City Corporate Challenge track meet. KCCC is part recess, part boot camp, part friendly competition for 8 to 5ers around the city. Events range from fishing and darts to weightlifting and flag football. So far, Garmin has taken the top slot among companies our size for the bike race meet and 5k meet, and we’re currently leading our division in track by a nice margin. No surprise our cyclists and runners have the best training tools on their side — our Edge bike computers and Forerunner fitness watches. Come Sunday, several of us will be putting the new swim-proof, multisport Forerunner 310XT through the paces at the KCCC triathlon or duathlon. Another favorite local event, the Hospital Hill Run, takes place tomorrow and will draw some 5,500 runners to the streets of KC, including about 55 individuals from Garmin. I’m saving my legs for Sunday’s duathlon, so no hills for me tomorrow. But if you’re running HH, I’ll be cheering for you along with my friends from Girls on the Run at the last aid station on the 10k and half marathon course. We’ll be reminding those weary runners that “there’s no place like the finish line.”
