WPR Sportscast for Wednesday February 4

A few words about this week's run

Once in a while, WPRs will change out of their running clothes, maybe bathe, and rendezvous out in public as civilians. It's a wonderful sight, all these folks who met and bonded through running and beers, hanging out outside of WPR. You might say they are "friends," or something. Now I'm not saying that you're gonna make a whole new set of awesome friends just by coming out and running with WPR, but it does seem to be the way it works out.

Upcoming run sports

Donor Dash 5K/10K - April 19

Organ donations help save lives. That's something you've probably heard before, but it's something that hits close to home for some of our own runners and so we are getting fully behind this year's Donor Dash race. In fact, we have a WPR team that you can join. Funds raised will support organ donation awareness campaigns. If you aren't up for running, please donate to our team. Thanks!

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.
