Good luck Penny and Patrick!

Penny is running the Miwok 100k tomorrow, Saturday, May 4! 62 miles in the Marin Headlands.

Patrick is running the Big Sur Marathon on Sunday! Iconic, spectacular, and just a little bit hilly.

Hope you both have a great race and a fantastic experience!

Apologies for the late post, been traveling all week for work. I’ll post some routes a bit later, but I wanted to get the notice out!

Join us, should be a beautiful day! The routes will be familiar as we get used to a new starting place, then we’ll explore a new corner of the city!

Join us for our weekly long run 8:00 am Saturday, April 27 at the Conservatory of Flowers in GG Park. We meet at the bench on JFK Drive just west of the Conservatory.

No 4/20-like event this week, should be good for parking and meeting! Should be cool but sunny – my weather app guarantees 0% chance of rain!

Hope to see you all out in the spring sunshine with us!

GG Park closed to cars today!

Apologies to all, I did not know the Park would be closed today for 4/20 celebrations. I have parked on Fulton and will jog over to our meeting place, and wait for a few minutes for anyone else who can make it.

Paris Marathon in 2020!

David O and Jay K have signed up for the 2020 Paris Marathon! We’d like to issue an open invitation to anyone in the club to join us. The date is April 5, 2020. David and Jay are celebrating milestone birthdays next year, and what better way than to run a marathon in the City of Light in the spring?

Unlike many major big-city marathons, the Paris Marathon does not have a lottery (yet), although they do have qualifying times and fund-raising as entry options. The entry for 2020 opened two days ago, and we were able to sign up today, confirmed entry. Another way in which the Paris Marathon is unlike others, the entry fee was 90 euros, or about $102. For comparison, NYC is close to $300.

Make a vacation out of it, bring the family! Or leave the family behind and make it a different kind of vacation! We are committed and will start our training in earnest in the fall. Join us!
