Here’s another does of Weekly Recap!
Happy Friday all! Time to recap everything FrontRunners from the past week. We’ve compiled photos and links to help give a good summary of the happenings of this last week, and we encourage you to explore the post at your own leisure.
Here we go!
This last week we enjoyed a Dive Bar Birthday celebration in the Tenderloin, savored delicious Bagel Brunch, continued Interval Training with SF Track & Field Club, and had a Pride Run meeting… all in addition to our usual runs!
Dive Bar Birthday Night: Judith celebrated her milestone birthday on Friday with the club as Gangway in the Tenderloin. Thanks, Judith, for having us all there to celebrate your birthday and for the pizza!
She is about to blow out all her candles… not afraid of the fire, as my poor, photography skills make it appear!
April Bagel Brunch: On Saturday, following the runs, SFFR members indulged in the delicious Bagel Brunch, put on by Steve Benne of Molto Benne Catering (link). Thanks, Steve, for the continued spread of yummy food!
SF Track and Field Club Interval Training: Sunday’s weekly Interval Training at SFSU Cox Stadium was well attended, including participation by their female teammates SFTFC Secretary Cynthia Tam and Director Tracy Johns with some 30m lunges followed by 20m sprints, among a dozen other intervals. The long distance runners ran a 300m, 200m, 150m, 100m sequence with a 3 minute rest followed by several body weight excercises, including pushups and sit-ups. Chris Goodwin and Bob Callori are preparing for the 34th Annual Virginia Senior Games on Saturday, March 31 in order to qualify for the 2013 National Senior Games in Cleveland, Ohio.
As always, inquiries can be emailed to Bob at email@example.com
2012 SF Pride Run Meeting: The 2012 Pride Run Committee met at Bob’s and Chris’ house on Thursday to discuss all things Pride Run. We spoke about the garments for this year’s event, an additional sponsor party, and a pre-race party courtesy of Sports Basement (you rock, Ian Ballentine!). More news to come on both events. As always, we encourage people to attend them meetings and share their input and time to make the event a great success! (Plus free food… c’mon!)
Member Card Reminder: If you have renewed or signed up for FrontRunners for 2012, you can pick up your card at any Saturday after the runs. You can also arrange for a time to get your card with any of the Board Members or other club contacts. Please note that we will be printing names for recently renewed/joined members every 2 weeks, so if you have renewed in the last week, you won’t have a card printed until a week from now.
We got 2 new sponsors who are now offering discounts for SFFR Members (with your fancy new member cards!). See Jane Run (link), on 24th Street and Sanchez, is a wonderful store for women’s athletic supplies. They are offering a 15% discount to all members who present their cards. Also, Lombardi Sports (link) at Jackson and Polk are offering 15% discounts as well to members with cards. Thanks to both for offering to support SFFR and our membership!
As always, we welcome submissions for events, photos, news articles, and columns.
That covers it for this last week.
Enjoy your weekend and see you at the runs!
