The Leakey Foundation is a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco. We’re an official charity of the San Francisco Marathon and we are hosting an event of interest to runners. We would love to see you there!

Please join us on July 28th at Public Works in San Francisco for "Born and Evolved to Run." Daniel Lieberman is an evolutionary biologist and runner from Harvard University who studies how the human body evolved to run and how evolutionary insights can be used to prevent many kinds of injuries. He is the author of "The Story of the Human Body" and he was featured in the book "Born to Run."

We would like to offer a 30% discount to your club members and we would appreciate it if you could share the event information with your group.

Tickets are $7 with the offer code: RUNSF

Event details are below. I’ve also attached a flier.

Being Human: Born and Evolved to Run

Doors at 6pm | Talk at 7pm

Age Limit: 21+

Why did humans become such efficient long-distance runners? How can runners avoid injury? Join Daniel Lieberman on July 28th for Being Human: Born and Evolved to Run and learn about the evolution of endurance running.

Humans and our recent ancestors have been accomplished endurance runners for more than a million years, and this evolutionary history as runners partly accounts for why aerobic exercise is such a key component of human health. However, despite our long history as runners, studies suggest that at least 30% of runners get injured each year!

Join us as we explore how the human body evolved to run and how evolutionary insights can be used to prevent many kinds of injuries.

About Being Human:
Being Human mixes short talks from great minds with fun hands-on experiments, drinks, conversation, and storytelling. Each month we explore different aspects of our evolution, our behavior, and the human experience.

Join us for our weekly long runs 8:00 am Saturday, July 22 at Aquatic Park.

As the last run before San Francisco Marathon next week, it will be a nice flat route for tapering. Those running the Half need 75 minutes; full 1.5, hours. We’ll be running along the waterfront to Esprit Park. Turnaround depends on how far you want to run. But, if it is really hot tomorrow, we can run in the opposite direction to Golden Gate Bridge. So come on out and we can collectively decide.

Hope to see you tomorrow.

Join us for our weekly long run 8:00 am Saturday, July 16 at Aquatic Park.

Apologies for the late posting, the week got away from me, and I just got home.

We’ll have runs of 6, 8 and 10 miles, which I’ll either post later tonight or simply bring with me in the morning. It will be a surprise for everyone!

Two weeks before the SF Marathon and Half Marathons; for those running the races, we’re now in a taper, with an easy 8-10 miler on the schedule.

Congratulations to Penny, who not only finished a 50 k last week, but was the 4th woman overall!

Join us for our weekly long run 8:00 am Saturday, July 9 at Aquatic Park.

Three weeks to go until the SF Marathon and Half Marathons! We have 5, 8 and 10 mile courses mapped out. For those interested in one last long run, I’ll be starting at 7:00 am to clock five miles before joining the group at 8:00, so I’m looking to get in 15 miles.

Hope you all had a great 4th of July long weekend, and look forward to seeing you all out on the roads will us!

PS – good luck to Penny, who’s running a 50k this weekend!

Happy July 4th to all! Today (July 1) is also Canada Day! Hope you all have a great holiday weekend.

For those not traveling away for the weekend, the club is meeting at Aquatic Park, and will meet there for the month of July.

We have a 5, 8 and 10 miler mapped out. I will not be there this weekend, so you’ll have to inspect the courses on the MapMyRun links to figure out the courses. I will also email pdfs of the courses to the club board members, so someone will have them if they care to print them out.

A couple of other notes:

1. San Francisco Marathon is four weeks from Sunday! We have folks running both the first half and the second half races, and I believe at least one club member running the full. Come on out and join us, either on the course, to cheer us on along the way, and of course to party with us at the finish line. We usually meet at the corner of the Embarcadero and Folsom (or is it Howard?) with the club cooler and our banner flying high.

2. We identified the Healdsburg Half Marathon in the fall as a target race for the club. The race is held Sunday, October 9 at 7:30 am. Starts and finishes in downtown Healdsburg. It’s a fabulous course, fast and scenic, through the vineyards of Dry Creek Valley, with a downhill finish and a glass of wine as your reward. Many of the club members have run the race in the past, to rave reviews. The race can sell out, so you might want to check it out: http://www.runwinecountry.com/Healdsburg_Half_Marathon.htm

Join us for our weekly long run 8:00 am Saturday, June 18 at the Palace of the Legion of Honor. We have a 5 miler and a 9.75 miler on the tap, all very scenic courses (with a few hills, sorry, it’s the nature of the start/finish at the Legion of Honor. You will be rewarded with spectacular views, the camaraderie of your fellow runners, and the feeling of having done something fun and worthwhile!

For those looking for extra miles, join Anna and me at 7:00 am (same place), we plan to do a 5 mile loop before joining up with the everyone for the group run at 8:00 am.

Join us for our weekly long run 8:00 am Saturday at the Legion of Honor out towards Land’s End. It’s a new meeting place for us, but we’ve run by it many times. Lots of parking! We’ll meet by the fountain in the parking lot in front of the Palace of the Legion of Honor.

For those training for the SF Halfs, we have 14 on the schedule. Our plan for the 14 milers is to meet at 7:00 am and get in 5 miles, then join the group for the 9 miler, to avoid the heat of the day.

We also have a 5 miler and a 7 miler mapped out, all beautiful courses, with a few small hills thrown in… Hope to see you all out with us tomorrow!

Join us for our weekly long run 8:00 am Saturday, May 28 from Esprit Park.

For those training for one of the SF Half Marathons, we are 9 weeks out, so the schedule call for 8 miles at long, slow pace, before tackling 14 (!) next week in the buildup of our endurance. We will attempt three long runs at a distance longer than the half to help us arrive at the race on July 31 brimming with confidence.

We also have an easy 5 miler and a 10 miler for those looking for a different distance.

Have a great holiday weekend!
