Meet up with fellow Pasadena Pacers for your midweek runs! Distance and speed varies but on average it’s a loop around the Rose Bowl. The meeting location is in the same general vicinity as the Saturday morning runs….slightly south of the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center (360 N. Arroyo Blvd., Pasadena, 91103) near the picnic tables on the south end of Parking Lot I.

6:30 pm RBAC - Performance Coaching

Looking to achieve a PR and/or professional style coaching? Coach Armand leads a weekly training session geared towards helping runners achieve running improvement in economy, form, strength, speed, flexibility, and overall endurance. The first session is FREE and then the monthly cost is $40 (this cost is much less that the overall value received!). Meet just south of the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center (RBAC) at the end of Parking Lot I.

Below is an introduction from Coach Armand:
“Hello everyone my name is Armand Crespo and I’m the Head Cross Country Coach and Head Track Coach at Pasadena City College. I also used to be the manager at Run With Us in Pasadena. I have known Dr. Smith for about a decade and we have become good friends. Dr. Smith has been trying to see if he and I could do something together to benefit the running community.

Late last year we started a great opportunity to get professional style coaching for the masses at a low rate. I coach once a week at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena using all of the techniques that have been given to Olympians, college, and semi-pro athletes for decades but have seemed to allude the masses. I have spent 20 years developing a program that can help anyone achieve their PR (personal record) at any distance. This program is for anyone who wants to improve using techniques that are proven to work. I have developed many athletes over the years from beginners to top collegians and have had the same success from All-Americans at the university level to state champions at the junior college level. My talent lies in the ability to see the deficiencies in people and correct them with care and attention. This is a personal program but grouping is used to help each individual to their goal.

This program is an added feature to the Pasadena Pacers training, I will just be here to give a little extra help to those who desire it.”

7:00 am Philippe's run
The annual Philippe’s Run is the one Saturday of the year when our training run is transformed into a destination run for ALL Pacers. This event is a blast as we run a straight out distance for 9.7 miles to Philippe The Original Restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles. This route is a combination of trails, Arroyo Seco Bike Path, and inner city sidewalks. This year’s event will be extra special since the 10-Mile Challenge runners will graduate upon finishing the run. Join us for the adventure, change of running scenery, good food, and new friends from fellow running groups!
IF YOU ARE A PRE-CONDITIONER (OR ONLY WANT TO RUN 5.6 MILES): Go to the Del Mar Gold Line Station. Park in the subterranean parking and walk up… to the street level (the group will meet by the entrance to the subterranean parking on Raymond Avenue). Please be ready to run at 7:00 a.m. sharp! Coach Dave will provide you with the full details on your combined run/metro adventure to Philippe’s. Bring enough cash to ride the metro to/from ($1 for metro card pass + $1.50 per boarding) and for breakfast. After breakfast, you will take the Gold Line back from the Chinatown Station to the Del Mar Station. Save your Gold Line ticket – it serves as a parking validation to exit the station parking lot.
IF YOU ARE RUNNING THE ENTIRE 9.7 MILES TO PHILIPPE’S: Go to the Del Mar Gold Line Station. Park in the subterranean parking and walk up to the street level (the group will meet by the entrance to the subterranean parking on Raymond Avenue). Please be ready to run at 7:00 a.m. sharp! We want to arrive before they stop serving breakfast and about the same time that the Pre-Conditioners arrive. Bring cash for food and for the metro ride back ($1 for metro card pass + $1.50 per boarding). Don’t forget to bring water (there will only be one water station at Mile 6). After breakfast, you will take the Gold Line back from the Chinatown Station to the Del Mar Station. Save your Gold Line ticket – it serves as a parking validation to exit the station parking lot.
The route is a bit tricky so everyone should wear their Pacer red t-shirt. There are plenty of Pacers who have done this run in the past and know the route, so stay with them. There will be sweepers but we advise that you run with at least one other Pacer. We will have hard copies of the directions available at the start of the run. If you want, you can bring extra clothing and we will have a bag drop-off vehicle that will bring your bag to Philippe’s. The group picture will be taken a bit before 7:00 am so PLEASE get there early.
