Polar Vortex: Challenge Accepted!

Hi runners,

Looks like we have survived the polar vortex! If the Meetup group was any indication, our members seemed to be dropping like flies yesterday for the run last night — but 7 1/2 brave souls still managed to show up for our weekly 5k around Waterfront Park! (Don’t worry, the “1/2” was an infant.. not a fractured person.) True, temperatures were a little “warmer”  yesterday than earlier in the week, but after a few days of being cooped up in the house, it was nice to stretch our legs with more awesome folks from the area. And, despite our usual venue being temporarily closed for construction, we still managed to have a great time over at Manny & Merle’s ! Rock on, everyone.

$2 tacos and $3 “Mannyrita.”


We also talked about doing the Triple Crown races in Louisville this winter/spring – if we can get enough people, it will definitely be more fun and we can once again combine a few of our favorite past times: running, chatting, drinking, and winning.


Run happy,
