AIR 10th anniversary
Happy 10th Birthday AIR!
Do you recognize this picture? If so -- you're an AIR original! This is one of our club's very first races, a small beach run for club members. Now we present three popular, professionally timed races each year with hundreds of runners and walkers (including a half-marathon!) Our goal since the beginning has been to promote running and walking for all, regardless of age or ability, and be a resource for our local running community. Now we have free, weekly group runs with personalized coaching available (6-7 p.m. Wednesdays at the FBHS track, weather permitting); hold a free annual summer camp for beginning runners; and give away thousands of dollars in scholarships to graduating high school runners, and donate thousands more in race proceeds to nonprofit groups. Our club socials have been graced by guest speakers who are luminaries in the world of running, including Jeff Galloway, Hal Higdon just last month, and our very own Roy Benson. And everything we do is thanks to you, our volunteers and supporters. Thank you -- we truly couldn't do it without you -- and we look forward to what our next decade will bring! For a look at pictures from our past -- our first 10 years -- please check out this photo album. Find yourself or see how many events you can identify!

Katie Ride
AIR at the Katie Ride!
Congratulations of all of the AIR members who took part in the 10th anniversary Katie Ride for Life April 12! AIR has fielded a team every year, so thanks to all of you who rode, walked or ran for this great cause!

Anniversary
Celebration and Remembrance
Famed running author Hal Higdon, left, was our special guest speaker at AIR's 10th Anniversary social March 5! Hal is seen here with his wife, Rose, and our own renowned running Coach Roy Benson. Hal has long been associated with the Boston Marathon and has written a new book about last year's race, "4:09:43," the numbers on the finish-line clock when the first bomb exploded. He talked about the book and also his own running experiences, including Boston, where in 1964 he was the first American finisher. We also heard a brief history of the club from its first president, John McBrearty, and awarded AIR grants of $500 each for FBHS Track and the Amelia Island Trail. Our 10th Anniversary party was a great night, a great talk and a great turnout! Thanks to one and all.
