Spring, Finally - WPR Run Update April 3

Days Days like this, it is so exciting to be a runner. This is the greatest time to be outside feeling the cool, refreshing air stream past as you push distance or pace. Those of us preparing for Spring races are full of eager anticipation. And, best of all, the days are longer so morning and evening runs don't have to feel like illicit activities taking place in the dark of night.

As the weather continues warming, WPR will be taking our post-runs to some new bars with outdoor spaces that can accommodate us. This week, we'll be at our new home base, the Bottle Shop, once again.

Upcoming Events:


March Madness Final Game Viewing Party. Monday, April 8. From Sara,
March Madness is drawing to an end, and it's been an exciting tournament. Many of us were massacred throughout the tournament, but a few people showed remarkable basketball prowess, and still have some teams in the final four left.

Come out to Flint's house to watch the final game! Flint lives at 506 South Melville Street and has agreed to provide a grill, a TV, and some beer. So BYO grill foods, a snack, and maybe some more beverages! Game time hasn't been posted yet, but will likely be around 7pm.

I've only gotten money from a few of you, so pay up this Wednesday at WPR, or bring money to Flint's!
Races Coming Up:
Wharton 5K. April 6. This race is nice and cheap if you are a Penn student/employee. Otherwise, it is at least close.

26 x 1 Mile Marathon Relay Challenge. May 18.
Oddyssey Half Marathon. June 9.
20in24. July 20.
