McGillivray is Coming
Be sure to be at the Lake Q 5K on Wednesday October 22nd. That night, after the race, we will head over to the Crystal Community Center. There Dave McGillivray will be on hand to speak to the Mystic Runners.
His subject is “Defining Moments.”
Dave is, of course, director of the B.A.A. Boston Marathon. Additionally, he directed the 1990 World Triathlon Championships, U.S. Women’s Olympic Marathon Trials, the Beach to Beacon 10K, the Run to Home Base, the Feaster Five, and scores of other races. He also served as a consultant to the New York City Marathon and the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.
Dave is an eight-time competitor in the Ironman World Championships, with a personal best of 14th overall. He’s completed more than 130 marathons, and he has run across the country twice.
On October 22nd, if time permits, Dave will be our guest starter at the Lake Q 5K.
Hump Day..Halfway to the Weekend...
Another great thing about Wednesday is it's when you can find the Mystics at home on Lake Quannapowitt.
Each week we gather in the side lobby of the Clarion Hotel (formerly the Lord Wakefield). Volunteers are on hand after 6pm to greet all arrivals, members or new comers. We ask a $2.00 donation which either goes towards post race water and snacks or is donated to our favorite local charities. Numbers are issued to all who sign in, pleasantries exchanged, and then it's off to the starting line.
At 6:30, walkers start and
At 6:45 the runners take off for a perfect 5K around the lake.
Refreshments and good conversation are always available at the finish line whether you finish in under 20 minutes or over 40. Finish times are reported in Coolrunning.com, in the Mystics weekly newsletter, NEWSPRINT, which is emailed to all members and, here, on our website.
So, if you are looking to join a running club or you just want to share a night of running with a friendly crowd, stop by Lake Quannapowitt any Wednesday, any time of the year.
We are 10 years running!
