Members of Marathon Matters are dedicated runners who take their training seriously, but they are also a group who enjoy socializing and having fun.

Over the past year, we have been able to get together on several occasions for post-run evening gatherings for food/drinks at a various restaurants in Regina.

We enjoyed a session on Nutrition and Weight Training for Runners put on by Neil and Erika Tkatchuk of Trench Fitness.

In the year ahead we want to continue with our post-run evening gatherings for food/drinks. These will be scheduled approximately every second Thursday after speedwork. The time and exact dates will be posted later. I would like to include in these evenings, a birthday recognition to those runners whose birthdays fall in that month. Special recognition will go to those who are moving to a new BQ category.

Other events that are being considered include: bowling night, scavenger hunt, progressive dinner, movie night followed by games, tobogganing night, and cooking classes for nutritious eating.

I would greatly appreciate input and ideas from everyone. Let’s make this the best running year yet!
