I am out of the state and will not be able to lead the canal fun run on Nov 15. I will return Nov 22. See you then!
November's cold weather is finally here, and we're plunged into darkness once again with Daylight Savings. Before you know it, the holiday season will be upon us...
This evening's run was chilly but not too bad. Thankfully, winds were at a minimal. It was great to see new faces.
As a heads up, I will not be able to lead the canal fun run next Wed, Nov 15. I'll be on a much needed getaway trip to California. We'll pick back up Wed Nov 22. Enjoy your November. Brrrr. Stay warm! :)

Happy Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos). I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween :) Unfortunately, I was not able to lead this evening's canal run. The cross country team I coach at Sandwich STEM Academy had its final All Cape meet in Yarmouth, and I wasn't able to make it back in time. But the great news is that Sandwich represented well, and every student-athlete ran with heart and determination. My top boys finished 1st, 2nd, and 6th in their race of about 100 runners, and my one girl placed 3rd in her race of about 100 runners. I am one proud coach!!!
I will return to the canal for the Wed night fun run next week, Nov 8. I hope to see you there!
This evening's canal fun run has been cancelled. The weather has been uncooperative all day, between the scattered thunderstorms, rain showers, and high winds. We had a long stretch of gorgeous sunny & warm weather this month, but now it's time to pay the piper. It's a much needed rainy day, nonetheless.
It was a sunny, warm, minimal wind kind-of Fall day... So nice out, that I ran in the morning and again this evening for the canal fun run. Needless to say, my legs are tired and I had no kick at the end... With the Baystate Half Marathon this weekend, I think I'll take the next three days off from running and focus on rest and recovery. I hope everyone is enjoying the nice weather while it lasts. Cheers!

It was a great Autumn day today... Cooler with a breeze and sunny. At the canal, winds were steadier, as usual, compared inland, which made for a slight challenge on the return leg of the fun run. But all in all- a fantastic day... Hard to believe it's almost mid-Oct. My favorite time of year, and it's flying by. Enjoy the Halloween spooktacular festivities. :)

Happy October! What a perfect day-- sun, warm wind, and a brilliant moon tonight. Tomorrow is the Harvest Moon, so be on the look out :) Enjoy the Fall Festivities!!!

The last canal run in September... Look how the time flies!! The leaves are finally turning on the Cape, and although it's been quite humid lately, at least the sun is shining brightly. Sweater weather is fast-approaching. See you in October :)

The effects of TS Jose could be felt at the canal, with increasing winds. Luckily the rain held off during the fun run, and the temps were pretty mild. Overall, the conditions were not too bad. A nice way to end the summer. Wishing everyone a happy Fall... my fav time of year :)

The month is flying by! Happy "Indian Summer" everyone :) The sunny, 80-degree temps have been amazing- I love this time of year... There are plenty of road races to choose from, so I wish everyone well in their training. ~Aloha~

I am not able to make the Wed Sept 6 canal fun run. I will be celebrating a belated Labor Day weekend in NH. I hope everyone enjoys their vacation time. See you for the Wed Sept 13 canal run at 5:30 pm. Cheers :)
Mild temperatures persist, with bright sunshine and moderate winds. It's starting to feel like Autumn! Wishing all the kids out there a great 2017-2018 school year. I am looking forward to another excellent Sandwich STEM Academy Cross-Country season. I love being a coach :)

It was a gorgeously calm and peaceful morning, with mild temperature and bright sunshine. In great company, the miles and minutes flew by. Seagulls and seals were the sighted wildlife de jour. Overall, it was a perfect start to a wonderful weekend :)

The month (and summer) are flying by! It was a sunny and humid day, which made for a sweaty evening run. We'll be missing these warm summer days of 2017 soon enough... One more Wed run in Aug-- see you then!

The weather was incredible today- sunny, warm, with no humidity. The perfect summer conditions! Unfortunately, I was not able to make today's canal run. I attended a military funeral at the Bourne National Cemetery. It was a very somber service. I apologize for the inconvenience. I will return Wed Aug 16 for the next runThank you for your understanding. ~Steph
Happy August everybody! It was a sunny, warm, and breezy day at the canal. What a great way to begin a new month :) Summer on Cape Cod doesn't get much better... If you haven't already, I invite you to pick up a copy of the Aug edition of Cape Cod Magazine. My canal fun runs are featured on page 60. Cheers!

End of July is upon us (*tear*), but there's still plenty of summer left to enjoy! It was a gorgeous sunny, mild, calm day today at the canal. Temps got up to 80, and winds were minimal. If you weren't working, I hope you made it to the beach :) See you next month!!

It was a sunny, mild, calm summer day on Cape Cod. At 6 a.m., without a soul in sight, we embarked on our 7.5 mile journey along beach and woods to Jeremy Point via Great Island at low tide. Along the way, we spotted coyote, plenty of fiddler crabs, and a variety of shorebirds. It was quite peaceful.
Next month's trail runs will be Race Point, Provincetown Aug 12 & 26. Please visit https://runsignup.com/Race/MA/Sandwich/WarriorTrailRunsCapeCod for details and registration.

I was not able to make it back from Boston in time for this evening's canal fun run. My apologies for the inconvenience. I was with my mom for her doctor appointment at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital. She is doing better, and she appreciates the company of family. Cheers to those who still showed up and ran. I commend you. I wish you a great week, and I'll see you next Wed, July 26. (P.S. The Cape Cod Magazine Aug edition will be coming out soon with an article about the Warrior Runners canal fun run. Stay tuned. Page 60!)
