Van Driver Class

Very useful. Haven't you always wanted to drive a rear-wheeled behemoth on snow-covered roads (if you like whippin' shitties -- for those of you not from Minnesota you might know this as "doing doughnuts" -- the answer should be yes)?

Sign up by calling x6278. Oh, yeah, and it takes place tonight at 7:00.

Tentative 9/29-10/3 schedule

Very tentatively:

M: Ari will lead practice at 5:00 (run, back by 6:30)
F: Ari will lead a running-type practice (TBD, we'll adjust it to participants' abilities) at 4:35ish.

If you can help lead another practice please let me know. Thanks!

Wednesday/Thursday Practice

I'll be lifting @ 2:15ish Wednesday and running @ 3:45 (meet outside the len cen) for anyone interested. Thursday I'm running @ 3:45 (meet outside len cen). If you'd like to push back times a little bit that can also work.

Ski / Lightning fail

Luckily, I was the only one drenched and waiting at the MARC/Leon Ceon today, which was good because my feet are hurt so running is probably a bad idea for me. Look here for updates the rest of the week about team-led practices (I am out of town) and I'll start for real next week.

Sorry about the weather! Run if you can, stay active, and get ready for practising Monday.

Practice Tuesday

I'll try to get out of work early enough to get to the Leonard Center (will that name stick?) at about 5:00 for some running. 6 miles, pretty easy, with some optional pickups. Bring running shoes. We'll run rain or shine.

Wait a few minutes if I am late...Thanks!

Club sports forms

Just a friendly reminder to get these forms in to athletics so you can be cleared to practise.

Also, see Claire's note about more practices this week.


hi skiers,

I will be spending some time in the Len Cen this afternoon and encourage people to come if they can. After class at 2:15 I may be lifting weights if Charlie thinks he will be doing so today (?). If not, I will either be going on a short run or doing some non-intensive cardio in the gym (note, I am recovering from mono and will be practicing somewhat on a reduced level until I get back into the swing of things). Then I have yoga from 3:30-4:40. Afterwards, I might either do some weights or cardio depending on what I got done before yoga.

Sorry this is not a concrete plan, but if you come over to the Len Cen monday, wednesday, or friday afternoon this week, hopefully you will run into Charlie and/or I if you would like to workout with others.

Ari will not lead a practice on Monday

For two reasons:

1. He has a work-related thing in the evening (free food and beer)

2. This weekend, he biked 12 miles to Minneapolis, ran a half marathon (came 17th, not bad considering he'd never run a race before), biked home, and then went and hiked 34 miles on the Superior Trail. Needless to say, he can barely walk right now.

If someone else wants to organise practice, please email him and post here.

Welcome to the Mac Nordic Blog

Hi skiers,

I've set up this blog so that we can keep information current without flooding email inboxes. Both I and other team members will post information about practices (which will begin next week) as well as other pertinent information. If you would like to be a blog contributor (suggested if you want to ever lead practices) please email me.

And anyone can comment, so if you plan to attend a comment, something like "hey I'm coming" signed with your name is splendid (but not necessary of course).

Thanks, get your forms in to athletics (go to the athletic office in the new sports center) if you have yet to do so and check back soon for the first practice time (likely next week).
