Julie and I met with Don Woodson and put together a group workout. We plan to meet on April 23rd at Pierre Marquette park north of Grafton, IL. Look for us in the parking lot in front of the visitor's center at 2pm.

Here's a map John Lake found for us:

The day will include a team odd-object carry on rough trails, a discussion of homemade equipment and a sampling of short, intense sandbag workouts.

This is a free event. Please let me know ahead of time if you plan to attend. All you need are running shoes or cross trainers (not boots, trail rules), appropriate clothing for wacky Illinois weather and a water bottle. If you have a sandbag bring it. If you have a friend, drag them along.

Hope to see you then!

Chris Jordan

Not that far Karl! I would love to see you there!

I would guess you would drive to Jacksonville or Winchester then probably another hour south.

According to the map, you would be looking at about 185 miles..So, probably a 3-3.5 hour drive.

That sounds great, and I would love to be there...but I'm in Alaska, so that's not happening. Could you post or email a description of what you're doing so the rest of us can try things out, please? I've been thinking about trying some sandbag stuff and would love some ideas.

Karl,
Is cool. I hope we have a chance to meet up sometime this summer. I'll be in touch.

Tim,
No problem. I'll provide details after the event. Julie and I are still finalizing the workouts.

I've gotten a pretty good response about this event. Now, if only the weather will cooperate...

Chris, just found out that I am off that day, so I will be there.

I'm having a rough spot with homework right now, once that cools down I will call the gymnastics place down the street from me and see if they can do a seminar for us.
