WPR Sportscast - Kicking off 2015 Run

A few words about this week's run

Remember when you made that resolution to run more in the near year? Well this Wednesday is your chance to kick off the new year on the right foot. Not only will you be sticking to that resolution, but with temperatures in the teens, you'll be "embracing the suck" with such gusto that all of your friends will surely think you are either incredible or completely insane. I have mapped out a very special route this week that allows you to get from the start line to the bar in 0.18 miles if you so choose. This fourth loop is incredibly respectable and highly encouraged, especially if you are not ready to commit to running in these frigid temps. We'd love to see you out there either for some running or some socializing.

Registration is Open for ODDyssey Half Marathon - June 14

Yes, it's a bit early to be talking about a race in June, but this is a great race and worth looking into now. The race is likely to sell out (it's small - only 4000 runners). Plus, between the costume contest, beer tent, and the awesome course through Fairmount Park, this is (in my humble opinion) the best half-marathon in Philly. Register under our team when it asks how you found out. If we get a group of 10 together, we'll have our own party tent that we will stock with beer and a blowup monkey doll.
