I always joke after a long day of skiing that other sports really should get follow the lead of the ski world and embrace the concept of “apres ___”. I definitely enjoy a beer after a road race, why not after a casual run with friends?
As I have mentioned before, I am involved in the American Cancer Society DetermiNation Program as a mentor and committee member. For those who aren’t familiar, DetermiNation is the American Cancer Society’s nation of athletes determined to end cancer. This powerful and inspiring movement saves lives by enabling athletes to dedicate their training and participation in marathons, triathlons, cycling races, and other endurance events to a lifesaving effort to fight a disease that has already taken too many lives.
DetermiNation has been very powerful in many communities and nationwide, but the New England chapter is relatively new and is working towards increasing it’s presence and footprint in New England. Katy Meagher, the Community Executive for DetermiNation NE (as well as one of my oldest friends), has organized a Pub Run series leaving from The Point in order to bring together runners from the Boston area and spread the word about DetermiNation New England!
The first run is happening on 2/24 at 6:30pm leaving from The Point Boston, 147 Hanover St Boston, MA (The corner of Hanover and Union Streets) and heading out for a 5 mile run throughout the city and enjoying some beers and good conversation afterwards. Runners of all abilities are welcome! RSVP on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/eL6lvV. I hope you see you!
