Attention Chicago Runners!!!!

It's time to talk about running!!!
(and drink beer!)


I was of the feeling that there are lots of people here in Chicago that are either just running for the joy of running or in the processes of gearing up for training for the Chicago Marathon (you all know who you are) or some other race. Since many of us are following very different training plans it would be fun to get together once a month or so to talk about how your plan is going, problems you have come across and so on and use each other as resources. I know that a lot of you train with training groups so already have this, but I don't so...well...so there.

Running Jayhawk and I were talking about having a monthly "meeting" and by "meeting" I mean dinner and drinks, to stay in touch with each other, aside just following the various blogs and websites. (There are actual real people behind the words....really....and we are very cool!).

The first of these gatherings will be occuring on Friday, June 16th at 7pm at the Goose Island Brewery near the North and Clybourn intersection. I know everyones schedule is busy so hopefully we can keep these going on a semi regular basis.

Please let me know in the comments if you are interested in joining and I look forward to meeing all of you!

Sounds like a great time....but I'll be down the street at Taste of Randolph that night checking out Son Volt. Feel free to stop by after dinner...how will I recognize anyone if they aren't in their running gear?

It's a great idea which should be a regular thing. There's plenty of us out there. How about a Ravinia night?

I'm definately interested but Chicago is a little bit out of the way for me. Wanna meet in Vancouver instead?

LeahC said...

I have never been there...perhaps for a vacation!!! :-)

I can't make it this month, but as I stumbled onto this blog from the new runnersworld.com forums (I'm Tizzy319) if you could let me know about future months meetings I'd love to attend. I'm at mtisdahl@hullhouse.org
