Cohort 3 (virtual running club)

Monday meeting at 6:00pm  Google meets link

Guest speaker at 6:15 on the above link.  Cohorts 1,2 and 3 are welcome to attend.

Our guest speaker will be Laurel Kruger.  Laurel is an East High School alumna from the class of 2018. Over the course of the 3 years she ran at East, she took 4 and half minutes off her 5k time, going from JV to one of the top female runners in school history. In 2017, she was a member of the first East girls’ 4×800 relay to qualify for state track championships, and the first (since 1995) East girls’ cross country team to qualify for state XC championships. Despite a string of injuries and other challenges, she continues to run competitively at the DIII collegiate level at Smith College in Northampton, MA.
