We had people run 50 milers, 50Ks, the Schuylkill loop, and probably a bunch of other crazy stuff this past weekend. You all are amazing, impressive running humans! Keep at it, winter can't hold us down!
It is the time of year again when the South Philly Striders and Fishtown Beer Runners run the streets of South Philly to enjoy the holiday lights. The 12th Annual run will be on Thursday, December 12, at 7 p.m. at Capitolo Playground (9th and Passyunk, across from Geno's). PLEASE enter Capitolo on the 9th Street entrance, which is located in the middle of 9th between Wharton Street and Reed Street.
The run ends at Victory Beer Hall at XFINITY Live! (11th and Pattison). Victory Beer Hall will have its late night menu available and there will be $5 beer specials. REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR IDs.
WPR Interval Training - Mondays at 5:30pm
Whether your training plan is calling for it or you just want to add a little variety to your running, WPR has you covered for your interval training needs down. We meet up at Penn Park every week at 5:30pm at the bike racks south of the western soccer field (if someone has a better way of describing that location then let me know...).
The standard workout is 3-5x 1000m with 400m recovery between sets and the group is very good at explaining that workout to new folks who come out... so come out!
