Summer Session Concluding–Mock 5k Tuesday, August 4

The Summer Session is winding down.

The traditional Mock 5k is Tuesday, August 4. We’ll meet at the South end of the Claremore Lake Trail, near the water fountain, and be ready to go at the usual 6pm.

Plenty of good plans for healthy completion are in the works. Bring your smile and your favorite RoCo Fitness shirt to wear.

PUBLIC IS WELCOME–there is no charge for this event, not timing chips, no big prizes, … just an opportunity to have a mock 5k race, and see how you summer training helped you.

Don’t forget Thursday, either: the “Pace Night” at Claremore High School Track, to really measure your improvement over the last ten weeks.

TRAIN FUN!

Tuesday, July 28–no official session tonight

What is is about Tuesdays in July?

With the heat-stroke potential of the High-Heat Warning, there will be no mentored RoCo Session at the Lake tonight.

Someone will be on hand to pass out shirts for those who have earned them so far. If you are in that group, stop by.

There may be a few peeps on hand to do a lite workout, if you want to come dressed for that, but don’t count on your regular group or mentors being there as a group.

HYDRATE! Train Fun, not crazy.

Tuesday, July 14 Lake Sessions Cancelled

Heat indices for today are predicted to be 105 to 113.

They hit the predictions yesterday, so that will probably happen.

RoCo Fit Sessions at Claremore Lake for Tuesday, July 14, are CANCELLED.

Please get your exercise in, in some cooler location.

Hope we can get back at it on Thursday.

TRAIN FUN!

Hydrate!

Thursday, 18 June: All Workouts Cancelled

Since Rogers County is under a flash flood warning, we have determined to CANCEL RoCo Fitness sessions for tonight, Thursday, June 18.

Stay safe, and be smart.

Remember your honor workout this weekend, and “if the creek don’t rise” more by Tuesday, we’ll see you back at Claremore Lake.

Train Fun!!!

Technical glitch–Solved

Contrary to what your browser and security software may have told you over the weekend, we are still here and as safe as ever.

Our problem: our SSL certificate expired Friday. The new certificate was installed Tuesday morning.

So, there was a period when our site appeared to be “BAD.” It should be okay, again.

Thanks for your patience.

Good time just to go for a walk, or a run, or a bike ride.

Train Fun!

Let’s have fun getting healthier together!!!

Spring 2015 Session is in Full Swing! Registration closed…

We have a record number of participants/mentors registered for this Spring – 450+! This is awesome!

If you are a participant this session, please be patient and watchful of others in your groups. We have some very large groups and it is a challenge to keep them all together. The mentors are there for you, but please make sure and communicate clearly and often with them and others in your group to help us remain safe. This will also go a long ways in making it more FUN and ENJOYABLE! And please realize with any program, there will be stumbling blocks – but we will overcome those and become even better.

We are ordering the incentive tech shirts this week, so keep coming to the workouts and earn those points! You CAN DO THIS…set your mind and make the time for you. Together we will become healthier, one step or stride at a time. Watch for more info and events on our Facebook page – RoCo LoCo Motion

As some mentors state “Train FUN!”
