WPR Run Update July 18


Right about now in the summer, I typically start needing some external motivation to go out running in the heat. Fortunately, I have the group to keep me coming out for at least one run a week. WPR and all the sweet events coming up this fall keep me lacing up my running shoes when all I want to do is lay in my bathtub with cold water running over my head. WPR has a team for Ragnar PA this year and we still need 2 runners!! This is your chance to get real close with some of your favorite runners in the world, spend 36 hours running from Lancaster to Mt Pocono, see the moon in the middle of corn fields while cheering on your team, and eat shoe fly pie in the company of PA's finest Amish folk. It is fantastic! Please let me know if you want to join us and I'll fill you in on the deets.

Other Upcoming Shtuff:

WPR 26x1! July 28th at 10am. We are in the process of gathering a team of Fishtown Beer Runners (finally) and they claim that they are going to bury us. Now 26x1 is totally a fun run, BUT I cannot abide trash talk without responding in kind, so let's get ready to kick some shad-eating butt.

Philadelphia Runner Olympics Watching Party. August 5th. Free food and drinks and a chance to win Puma running shoes. Check it out and sign up, it's sure to be a blast.


Fishtown Beer Runners Olympics Event. August 9th. Not many details yet, but FBR founder, Dave April is cooking up a cool event at the International House to celebrate the Summer Olympics.
