Week 4 Results

Click here for run 4 results. We were lucky last night. Pretty soon after everyone was in, we were pounded by an intense thunderstorm. It's hard to get through the entire Summer Swing Series without some weather problems, but maybe this will be the year that we do. Keep in mind that I usually post information here, on the day of a run, if the race weather is threatening. Welcome to Phillip, Tim, and Craig, good to have you there yesterday. Hope to see you in future runs. Always good to see the rest of the crowd, too. We have 12 runners with "perfect attendance" so far! I look forward to seeing you each week. Doug

Weather looks to be cooperating, see you this evening. Doug

May 24 Weather

it's hard to tell what the weather is going to do this afternoon. Odds are that we WILL have the run. I will plan to check back here between 4pm and 5pm with additional information. Doug

Week 3 Results

Great to see everyone yesterday afternoon at run 3. Weather is still pretty cool, at least compared to what is coming in a few weeks. Welcome to those joining us for the first time this year - Win, Audrey, Valerie, Greg, Frank, Triston, and Russ. Hope to see you next week! Be sure to check results in the link in the right column "2022 Summer Swing Results". Eleven runs still ahead of us - one of them will be watermelon day, and then pizza day following later. Lots to look forward to! With school winding down for many families, I'm hoping for an influx of young runners to join us. It's great training, with opportunities for personal records since it is such a FLAT course (LOL!). See you next week - Doug

Week 2 Results

Great evening for a run! Somewhat cool (for May), low humidity, nice breeze. Had a good turnout, and a good time. Welcome to Summer, Alice, Thomas, Misty, Banks, Rachel, Jay, and Bob. Good to have you back, or as a first time participant. See you next week, I hope, and bring a friend. Lee-Scott Academy Jazz Band had the concert, they sounded really good to me as I was packing up after the run. Next week is Bill J. Brooks, Elvis impersonator. He's also very good; take in the concert after the run. The concerts start at 7pm. If you are interested in the concert schedule, see the link in the right column. Also, you can find race results in the link named "2022 Summer Swing Results". Hope to see you next week. Doug

Week 1 Results

I'm running two days late on results, sorry about that! But I did catch some fish yesterday, and they are cleaned and frozen, good to go. So now, about run 1. It was good to see everyone, and I was happy to see a few new faces, as always. Welcome to Gary, Jeff, and Brenna - hope to see you regularly, and please bring friends if you like. You can see results by clicking on the "2022 Summer Swing Results" link in the right column. Let me know if you have any problems getting to the results page. We will crank it up again next Tuesday, don't miss. A word about weather - the run goes on rain or shine - UNLESS we have lightning in the immediate area. In the case of "iffy" weather, which we are bound to have sooner or later, I'll communicate here on whether or not the run is cancelled, prior to the run (usually by 5:30pm). In the 18 years we have had the run, we probably have had fewer than 10 cancellations. Another concern - when it gets really hot in July, runners need to take extra precautions - slow your pace and/or walk when you need to. Don't want anyone hurting themself! See you next week - Doug.

Results are Late

Running late on posting results from last night's run, sorry! Had a chance to go fishing this morning and jumped on it. I will post results Thursday morning. Did I catch anything? Shoot yeah! Some crappie and a nice catfish! See you next week!
