The plus side of putting together the WPR email at the last minute is that I can be pretty certain about the weather and it's looking like a fun wet one tonight. This feels like the right time to make the annual PSA that it's dark out during our runs and y'all should make sure to wear bright stuff so drivers can see you.
The Rescue Run 5K is Philly’s first and only race to benefit and promote rescue and adoption. Racers, spectators, family and friends are able to meet furry friends for adoption at the event and get more information about getting involved with local animal shelters. Proceeds go to continuing the mission of The Monster Milers, Philly’s shelter dog running volunteer and rescue organization.
Important Note: While this is a race that promotes dog rescue, dogs are not allowed to run in the race. This is for the safety of our runners. There will be plenty of adoptable dogs waiting at the finish and spectators are permitted to bring on-leash, social dogs to cheer for runners.
WPR Interval Training - Mondays at 5:30pm
Whether your training plan is calling for it or you just want to add a little variety to your running, WPR has you covered for your interval training needs down. We meet up at Penn Park every week at 5:30pm at the bike racks south of the western soccer field (if someone has a better way of describing that location then let me know...).
The standard workout is 3-5x 1000m with 400m recovery between sets and the group is very good at explaining that workout to new folks who come out... so come out!
