Rice All Comers Track Meets

All-Comer Track and Field Meets are being held for 3 Fridays during June at Rice. The last one will be Friday June 26th starting at 6PM at Rice University Track on the corner of University and Main. The cost is $7.00 per person for unlimited events. This video was taken on June 19th of some the 800 and 400 meter heats. Featured runners (i.e. people that I know) are Matt Nicol, Neeraj Rohilla, Leno Rios, Tom King, and Sabra Harvey. It is a lot of fun to watch and I've been told it is fun to run in, but I am not so sure about that:) Contact Casey Thom at or Jon Warren at for more information.

Yoga for Runners

Recommendation from Linnie Reichle:

...wanted to let you know about a class I took Saturday, it was Yoga, but we concentrated on stretches for runners. It was great, you might want to post this info for some of the other runners in the club. It is on Saturdays @ TRI ON THE RUN @ 10 am. It is only $10.00 a class and Nicole took us through some great stretches. This Saturday the co-owner of Yoga One will be there to work on back stretches and some more running stretches.
