Huffing and Puffing

You've seen them - a runner now and then jogging around our little country town of Valley Center. Don't they look very solitary in this rural community? We don't have to be all by ourselves. There are a lot of runners in this here little town. Let's get together and share training, stories, advice and hopefully a little fun as we enjoy running around Valley Center and surrounding North County cities!

Escondido, San Marcos, Rancho Bernardo, Vista - COME ON OUT!

Challenge Level Shoe Challenge Level Scale
The "Challenge Level " scale is ONLY an estimate and is an opinion - your results will vary. Do NOT let this scare you off. The runs are at your own pace and there are typically alternative routes to run that make a tougher run easier. The scale is:

  • Challenge Level Shoe: Mostly flat, no major hills, can be street or trail (example location - Valley Center Library)
  • Challenge Level ShoeChallenge Level ShoeChallenge Level Shoe: Some moderate hills and trails (example location - Lake Hodges)

The First Meeting Is In The Books!

1st Meeting Group Picture

September 23, 2006 We had a great turn out for the first meeting! We ran about 2.7 miles and a few folks went on to complete even more mileage before shutting down. A good time was reportedly had by all, or at least they kept it to themselves if they didn't. :o)
