By Brian Ray

Welcome back from the weekend, and just in time for a long weekend ahead! Here is your weekly dose of FrontRunners news and events:

Thanks/Recap From Last Week
This last week we had special post-run events for the Tuesday and Sunday runners/walkers, and kicked off our second Couch To 5K program. A huge thanks to everyone who made it to each event!

Couch To 5K Continues!
We had our introductory workout of our 7-week Couch To 5K program last Saturday. Jump in at any time, and help spread the word to invite more people to check it out. The 3 weekly workouts coincide with our Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday walks/runs. The program will also culminate with the EBFRW Pride Run in October!

Saturday Shoe Collection
For a month, SFFR member Bob Callori is collecting all types of shoes, running and walking, at the Saturday runs to donate to Community Thrift. The credit will be given back to BARS (Bay Area Rainbow Symphony) as a donation.

Post-LBD Run Bowling Event With EBFRW - 9/16
Join our EBFRW friends after the 2017 Little Black Dress run for some bowling fun on September 16 from 2-4pm. Space is limited, so reserve a spot now with Reggie S at snowdenreggie@gmail.com ... Rides will also likely be arranged for the trip to Dublin Bowl.
