This past week I had the absolute pleasure of meeting two of our #Frogger15 relay teams!
Super Spinners – Michelle, Hailey, Samantha
The Super Spinners relay team is running in the Frogger 15 for the first time. Michelle, Hailey, and Samantha work together at Spinners Sports in Campbell River, and now they’re training together for the Frogger 15. The ladies are in it for fun and for the challenge of taking on something new. Their can-do attitude has also motivated them to participate in Muderella, which takes place in Whistler one week after the Frogger 15.
“Get a Karla!” The Super Spinners are taking training advice from fellow Spinners Sports (http://www.spinnersworld.com/) employee Karla, who is running the Frogger 15 solo. Running together on Saturday mornings, The Super Spinners can be found on the Beaver Lodge Forest Lands trails and the Jubilee section of the Greenways Loop.
City Hall Froggies in Tutus – Christy, Nina, Eve
If you have seen a poster for the Frogger 15 or have been a part of the race in the past two years, you likely recognize the City Hall Froggies in Tutus relay team. Christy, Nina, and Eve enthusiastically embrace the spirit of the Frogger 15 by dressing up in bright and froggerful attire, having fun during their runs, and enjoying the pre- and post-run activities. These ladies take part in the Frogger 15 to support Greenways Land Trust and the Greenways Loop and to participate in a great community event. As runners and cyclists who use the trails in and around Campbell River, they know the importance of contributing to the organizations that protect and enhance our greenspaces. Christy, Nina, and Eve will be dressing up again this year, but they’re keeping the details to themselves until race day, September 19th.
“Tutus and wigs make you run faster!” “Have fun, you don’t have to be too serious about running to take part in the Frogger.”
Thanks to both teams for letting me blog about you. I am excited to run alongside all of this year’s Frogger 15 participants (not that I’ll be on pace with everyone, but I will be for at least a stride or two)! We are less than six weeks away from the event so lace up your runners and get out there! And if you know people who are thinking about participating, please encourage them – take them out for a run, share the blog, direct them to the registration page on Greenways Land Trust’s website – the more participants we have, the more fun we’ll all have on race day, and the more Greenways can do for our community. And if you want a Frogger t-shirt (they are very nice!), sign up on of before August 15th.
Happy #running! #Frogger15
