Incline Club V14 — Start of the New Season

Subject: Incline Club News V14 — Start of the New Season!!

Hello, ICers —

It’s that time of year again — The air is crisp, there is snow on the peak, its freezing cold at 6am and the sun is still not ready to get up till sometime much later. That can only mean one thing: It&3146;s time to start the 14th season of the Incline Club!

Hopefully your “off” season made for a good recovery period. By now you should be well rested and ready to go. After all, Sunday mornings with the club are the best time to go for a run!

Once again I, John Garner (not to be confused with that faster guy who goes by John Gardner), will be your newsletter editor for the year. (Or until Matt finds somebody who can spell :-)

Welcome all ‘Newbies’
If you are new to the Incline Club, you may think that we are a bunch of elite running nuts. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Incline Club is a trail running club that welcomes runners of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. The best way to improve your running is to show up and join the crew. There is a very good chance that you will find someone at or near your pace at our weekly runs. So don’t be shy, come on out for as many runs as you are able.

By simply signing up for this newsletter, you are a virtual member. In order to become a “real” member of the Incline Club you must show up and complete four workouts. It’s that easy. In doing so you will gain access to many of the benefits of club membership, such as discounts of up to 20% at local stores and live entertainment (! You also get a chance to rub elbows with the political elite of Manitou :~)

Don’t forget to check out the club FAQ: and if you have any questions just hit reply.

Reminder to ‘Oldbies’
Welcome back to another season! Please take a minute to update your “About Me” pages. Some things that change from year to year are PRs, goals, e-mail addresses, family status, and running stories. You can also update your photos by replying to the sender of this newsletter. (Please be patient since photos are manually updated, it sometimes takes a while! We’ll get to them as soon as possible. )

The Newsletter
Will come out on Wednesday(ish) of every week, and will let you know what is coming up for club runs, all the latest in club news, race reports, calendars and more. If for some reason you are unable to receive newsletters, you can always check the club website for upcoming runs, archived newsletters, message board, and more. To submit a newsletter item, go here:

So When IS the First Run of the Season?
First run of the Season will be Sunday, Nov. 29th at 8:00am — starting from Manitou’s Memorial Park. Details will come in the Wednesday newsletter.

Train hard and smart!
