Narragansett Running Association Scholarships

The Narragansett Running Association is awarding one-time $500 scholarships to two seniors at NHS and two seniors at SKHS planning to further their education in a technical program or in a 2 or 4 year college program.

These scholarships are for students who participated in either Cross Country, Indoor Track or Outdoor Track during their junior or senior years. Applications are available to download here – NarrRunningAssocScholarship or in the school’s Guidance office. 

Applicants must be a graduating senior at Narragansett High School or South Kingstown High School, who has participated in either Cross Country, Indoor Track or Outdoor Track during their junior or senior years. Preference will be given to athletes who participated more often in these sports.

Completed applications are due to the Guidance office by May 5, 2017.

 

Staying In Touch

Consider this a refresher if you’re already familiar with the various ways members of the group communicate with one another. 
 
If you’re new to the group, this is a rundown of how we stay in touch:  
 
The primary way we communicate is via the yahoo groups listserv – details on how that works are listed below. That is definitely the first place to check if you’re looking for information on group runs or other club events. 
 
We also have a Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/groups/125163730855854/ – which is another great place to post pictures and other club news. It’s a public group, but you do have to request to join in order to post and comment (just click the link to Join and I’ll approve your request). We love to see group photos from training runs and/or races, and hear about what club members are up to, so please feel free to post there if you have something running- or club-related to share. You’re welcome to post group runs on there, too, but since the email list is typically the vehicle for organizing group runs, be sure to use that as well, since not all members are on Facebook. 
 
Anyone is welcome to post about a group run, and you are encouraged to do so. We have groups of all paces and abilities going out at all different times and places, which is part of what makes this group so great. So regardless of how fast or slow you think you run, post when and where you’re going, and someone is almost certain to join you!  And also – don’t be intimidated to join in on a run when you see it posted. This is one of the friendliest, most welcoming group of athletes I’ve ever met.
 
Lastly, this website – www.gansettrunning.org has information about the regular weekly runs, the Youth Track Series, our two club races – the Super 5K and the Gansett Half – as well as a link to pay membership dues and a contact page that lists the club officers and board members, should you need to get in touch with any of us.  
 
If anyone has any questions about any of the above (or below), feel free to email me at msanantonio4@yahoo.com.
 
Thanks. 
 
– Michelle

NRA 101: Email Basics

We use a “yahoogroup” e-mail listserv, which is free of charge. Here are the basics of our list:

When a message is sent to the group, it first goes to a “yahoo” server which then distributes it to everyone on the list, adding “[Gansett Running]” to the beginning of the subject line.

To e-mail the group, simply compose a message to gansett_running@yahoogroups.com 
 
When you “reply” to a group message, your reply goes to the sender only.

When you “reply all” to a group message, your reply goes to the sender and the whole group. 

There are 250 people on the list. About 1/2 of those are NRA members, others are NRA-friendlies, and still others have joined the list but have never run with us.

The list is open to anyone interested in our club runs and activities.

The list is primarily used to announce our weekly group runs and for forming impromptu group runs.

The list is also used to announce social activities, form carpools to races, and disseminate running-related information which may be useful or interesting to those on the list.

In the body of every group message is a link to change your settings, including an option to unsubscribe from the list.

The number of group messages per month ranges from about 80 to 180, which is about 3 to 6 messages per day. In general, the list should be used for running- or NRA-related activities and announcements only. Random chatter, while fun and amusing to the few people ‘in the loop,’ is likely a nuisance to everybody else and serves to diminish the average perceived value of the  group messages.

That said, we encourage everyone on the list to use it in a way consistent with its purpose. For those who think the volume of e-mail messages is a  nuisance, there is a “daily digest” option in which you will receive all group messages in a single message once per day. I’d be happy to help you make this change if you can’t figure it out yourself.
 

September Race Report

September is a wrap and October is knocking on our doorstep, and as we usher in a new month, let’s take a moment to reflect upon the awesome achievements of our running group and one person in particular!!!!
This particular issue of the race report is being dedicated a runner whose stellar performances at the Blessing and the Bobby Doyle were overlooked by this writer (her good friend). Only because she is such a lovely person that she has not repeatedly reminded me of this (the way I would, say, several times a day). OK!! I’ll tell you – this talented runner is none other than Bridgette McPhillips, who once again set herself apart from the crowd the other weekend in Connecticut at the Hogback Half Marathon with a smoking’ time of 1:38:53!!  Here’s what she’s been up to:
7/29/16 The Blessing of the Fleet 10 Miler:  1st in her AG  1:16:50
8/14/16 The Bobby Doyle 5 Miler:  7th in her AG  38:12:00
9/24/16 The Hogsback Half: 2nd in her AG  1:38:53
Nice work, Bridgette!!! You make us proud! OK, now for the September Race Results:

I have been negligent in posting the monthly race report here, but Mary D’Arcy has not been negligent in sending it out via the email list, so hopefully you’re all receiving it. If for some reason you’re not, please contact me at msanantonio4@yahoo.com, and I’ll be sure to add you to the list.

Great racing by everyone in the club this summer, and I love reading this report every month and seeing what you’ve all been up to.  I’ve had a string of injury issues so haven’t done a lot of racing the past few months, but hope to get my name back in the report starting this month!

Here’s hoping for a beautiful September, with cool nights and warm days, and the beginning of more comfortable, drier air that makes for perfect running weather.

Hope to see you out on the roads, or at a race, or at the Sept. 18 Gansett Half Marathon training run.  – MSA


 

AUGUST RACE RESULTS

At long last here are results from August. If you think these results are impressive just wait – temperatures are about to drop, and lower temps=faster times! A great way to test this theory out is by running the upcoming Gansett Half Marathon on October 23rd, but if you can’t wait that long to race, consider the next race in our Club Series, the Run Around the Block on 9/10 http://www.active.com/block-island-ri/running/distance-running-races/41st-annual-15k-run-around-the-block-2016 The Block + our favorite sport – what’s not to love!!
Thanks to all who turned out for the Gansett Half Course Preview Run last weekend (see picture below). Mark your calendars for the remaining two Course Preview Runs: 9/18 and 10/16 and stay tuned for details. And finally, this Tuesday (like, tomorrow) come celebrate a great summer of running at the annual Running Club Summer Party at the Wickford Yacht Club at 6:30pm. Thanks, Mike Tammaro, for organizing!!
Enjoy the results and see you out on the roads!

Donate Your Old Running Shoes at Camire’s

Wanted to let you all know that we now have a great option for recycling old running shoes. Keith has a donation box at Camire’s to collect your gently used running shoes, and they will be sent to the MORE Foundation. From their website – 
“The shoes are sold in major metro areas to vendors who in turn create jobs and help improve the quality of life in cities. The proceeds from the sale of the shoes provides training and tools to the poorest rural farmers……. With the MORE System, used athletic shoes convert to tree seeds, training and tools creating jobs for our youth and lessons in environmental health.”
 
Donate anytime at Camire’s!

January Race Report

Hi Runners!

Way to kick off 2016!!  We got a great start to the year, as you can see from the results listed below.
Great running performances and solid NRA turnout aren’t the only reasons to smile. Days are getting longer (we’ve already gained an hour of daylight) and according to The Groundhog, we’re going to have an early spring!
Our Club Race Series has gotten off to a great start but if you didn’t get out there this month there are plenty of more opportunities so no excuses 🙂
Best wishes to Matt Pelletier, who on Feb. 13 will be racing the Olympic Trials Marathon. Go Matt!!!
We hope to see you all on Sunday at our club run. Details are coming.
Until then, Happy Running…
