Hi Y’all,
It’s time for the Caroline edition of PARR news! Hopefully you are all feeling great, enjoying the coming, going and coming again of these cooler temps! Let’s hope they’ll be here to stay very soon. Continue to listen to your body… roll, run, stretch and REPEAT! We are really building the mileage now, but don’t forget the goal, get to the starting line HEALTHY and ready to love every second of your “victory lap”! So, let’s TRAIN SMART PEEPS!!
PARR has been travelling ALL over lately as race season is in full effect! CONGRATS to those who traveled to NYC for the marathon last weekend. Others traveled to Florida and completed in the Ironman Florida. WOWZA!! There is no doubt that PARR is full of some CRAZY AWESOME athletes!  Y’all are incredibly INSPIRING, MOTIVATING and SIMPLY AMAZING! CONGRATS to ALL!
Looking ahead, Julie Williams is headed to take on the unbelievable 100 miler this Saturday, Nov. 9th in honor of her beautiful daughter, Claudia.
