Due to the Lakefront Discovery Run, of which InStep Running and Walking Centers is a sponsor, we will not be at the Pettit Center for the indoor marathon social/training run this Saturday, Oct. 25. However, I would encourage all of you to use the "Disco Run", as a friend calls it, as your training run this weekend since the forecasted temperature for Saturday at the lakefront will be about the same as indoors at the Pettit Center. It is a 15K race (9.3 miles), and will finish at the Milwaukee Ale House, where there will be FREE BEER for runners. And the first indoor marathon registrant who can find me after the race at the Ale House will get a free black InStep long-sleeve technical shirt (I will be wearing the same shirt so I should be easy to find).
Also, the Pettit Center will be hosting a major speedskating event this weekend from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. Several of the past and future Olympians will be competing. Admission is free. So if you do run indoors this weekend, stick around to watch the speedskating.
