Keep in mind the Runner of the Year awards are rapidly approaching, here are some categories that will be available to vote on. We will probably have an online poll on the blog to vote thru for at least one of the categories. Here are some categories to think of. You may submit candidates to me, Higgie or through the blog comment section. This year we celebrate award re-distribution. You vote, and then we decide who gets on the ballot. Then after all the voting, we will gather up all the awards and hand them out evenly to those who didn’t get any votes, and to those who didn’t even race or train this year. We need to be fair and share among those less fortunate. Here are some categories.
Runner of the Year- Best overall performance, attendance on Wed, volunteering, pacing, guarding Blue’s back from the coyotes.
Race of the year- Best single performance in any race this year.
Best injury- Did anyone get hit by a car this year?
Newcomer of the year-IE.-Blue Dog-Michael Chen
Most improved runner- Runner who increased their fitness the most
The Ward Award (least improved runner)- Runner who went backWARDs in fitness, not forWARDs
Most memorable moment- Route, race trip, training run, race, when I showed up with Blue, etc.
Best excuse to not show up-(does not have to be true, be creative and throw your friends under the bus)
Albrecht Spirit Award-Always smiling, perfect attendance, never grumpy, ready to run any time.
Best Race Report - The written word or video essay.
