The gO! Running Group is a Roseville based recreational running group that aims to provide group running opportunities for runners of all abilities. Although our focus is primarily on 5K to marathons, we have members who have completed triathlons (including Ironman events) and ultras. We train on both roads and trails. We currently meet three times per week - Sunday mornings and Tuesday/Thursday evenings.

Taco Tuesday Time Trial

Inspired by tacos

They showed up in force,

Those mighty gO! runners

were ready (of course).

It was time trial night

At the RHS track,

and these athletes were willing

It was no time to slack.

After words of advice

And their warm-ups did end,

They stepped up to the start

“Let the mile begin.”

And off they were running

Like a thoroughbred race,

Jockeying for position

Adjusting their pace.

And as they got settled

and their hearts did amend,

The breathing got rhythmic

They flowed through the wind.

Lean legs showed the power

of the strength they’d achieved,

With affirmative looks

You could see they believed.

And after each circuit

Their confidence grew,

You could see the intensity

You could tell that they knew.

The stopwatch kept ticking

As the seconds clicked by,

But time lost advantage

‘Cuz these runners could fly.

Just to circle this oval

With such powerful grace,

Was more like performance

And less like a race.

When each one did finish

They turned back to cheer,

Inspiring others

It’s so nice to be here.

And then the gO! coaches

served tacos galore,

People milled around chatting

It was all we hoped for.

So the best part tonight

Was not ever their miles,

But the many kind words

and appreciative smiles.

For a gO! runner knows

As the day comes to end,

The one standing near you

Is truly a friend.
