CRU Meet Up


Tonight was the first installment of the Chicago Runners Unite (is this what we are sticking with?) meet up at Goose Island. How fun was that! It was so awesome to meet up with other Chicago runners and see what kind of training plans (or tv shows on DVD they watch...can we please let the Buffy thing lie?) they were taking part in this year. Also nice to connect faces to the blogs!

It was so awesome meeting all of you and I can't wait to see you all again next month!!!

Okay...I promise to drop the Buffy thing.

...maybe. ;)

Want me to remove it from el bloggo?

Anyhoo...great meeting you kids :) You rock.

It was really great getting to meet everyone! Thanks so much Leah for getting it together! Of course I forgot to ask you about your garmin watch...how are you liking it? Is it fairly accurate as to distance traveled?

How cool that you planned and pulled this thing off. You two rock! The Running Blog Family is the best. I like your CRU name, too. It is so neat when these kinds of things can happen.

Jason and Leah are the ones who first planted the idea in my head that blogging about running was actually kinda cool.

..and that the lactate threshold actually exists

..and that the modern world of running is not actually beset by rampant consumerism

I'm looking forward to seeing you next month--if I don't bump into you at the store before then!

I'm thinking the ladies were a little out numbered. Nothing wrong with that! Fun...

Great to meet you guys. Good luck on your long---and uneveitably very sweaty run. Rego, Barb and I thought about you this morning on our run...or course while the beer was sloshing in our tummies on the 6-miler. Go CRU!

See you on the 23rdish.

PS - Hopefully I can make the next "runners unit" to meet your crew.
