Run to Marcel and Michael's!

I established West Philly Runners, because I love this town of West Philly. I connect to my surroundings by being immersed in them and I have always explored by running. The upcoming Cobbs Creek 5K is the closest I have been able to come to connecting with West Philadelphia through West Philly Runners. For those who don't know, I have been involved in the planning of this race since its inception last year. This year, I developed the race website - www.CobbsCreek5K.com - and I am helping with the race planning process. This is about more than just a race. It is about connecting people to a beautiful piece of West Philly, which has been lost to people for a long time. This race has been the driver for the rehabilitation for the entire Cobbs Creek Park and is raising money for programs for kids in the surrounding area so that they can utilize this amazing resource. Registration is finally open so check it out and sign up!

We're running to Mike and Marcel's this week! They live at 521 N. Budd Street. If you would like to bring anything, please contact me and we'll coordinate. I am routing this week's runs to their houses, but passing through Fiume in case it is too far out of the way for anyone.

Upcoming

Broad Street Run Registration opens on Wednesday, 2/15 If you didn't hear yet, you should probably sign up within the first few days since it is going to sell out again. Just a heads up, I'm planning to put together a post-run drinking station with the other local running clubs like Fairmount, Bryn Mawr, and Philadelphia Running Clubs. I will try to sync up with Fishtown Beer Runners and South Philly Striders to make it more fun...

ODDyssey Half Marathon Remember that if you plan to register, you should sign up under my name!
