MONDAY 6:30pm – IT’S MEDAL MONDAY!! Let’s celebrate you! Wear your race shirt and/or medal. LAM training is on, so make sure you’re getting your maintenance miles in as well. All are welcome. Runners range from 3-6 miles and Walkers go 3 miles.

WEDNESDAY 6:30pm -It’s hilly Wednesday! Hills are our friends and we’re blessed with so many in Whittier. 😁

SATURDAY 6:30am-We’re in full training swing. From our 12-week programs, to upcoming half marathons, and full marathons, including LA Marathon. Let’s stay committed to our goal and remain consistent. Even better, invite a friend to join you. You just might be the encouragement they need.

SUNDAY: BIMBO GLOBAL RACE check your emails for final race instructions. Carpool if you can, and have fun out there earning yet another awesome medal.

Our Summer hours are here. We now meet up at 6:30am. Please look for the coaches posts on Thursdays to see if any adjustments are made to this new start time.

That’s all we have for this week. Remember to share the road, be kind, and smile. It makes you run faster. 😁 Stay safe, hydrate, and we’ll see you soon.
