Happy Friday, and Memorial Day Weekend! Here is your dose of weekly recap!
This last week we continued 2013 Pride Run and Pride Meet Registration, ran and people/watched during Bay to Breakers, continued interval training with SF Track & Field Club, and had a Pride Run meeting… all in addition to our usual runs/walks!
*Registration continues for 2013 Pride Run and 2013 Pride Meet: You canregister for the 2013 SFFR Pride Run here (link). You can also register for the 2013 SF Track & Field Club Pride Meet here (link).
*Seeking volunteers for the SFFR Water Station during the 2013 SF Marathon (June 16th): We are looking for people to help volunteer at our annual water station. It’s an amazing way to support runners, SFFR members, and the club, as we get some funds for showing up and helping. If you can volunteer or know anyone who might be interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Bay to Breakers: On Sunday, many SF FrontRunners and Friends participated in Bay to Breakers.
Congrats to everyone who finished the race!
Extra points to Rob Maier for representing SFFR in the new team uniform!
Interval Training with SF Track & Field Club: The SF Track an Field Club held practice at City College on Sunday and enjoyed interval training lunges, leg lifts, and skips on their artificial turf.
The venue was temporarily changed due to graduation at SFSU. The 12 attendees were able to perform Prisoner Squats, Flings, Sideway Runs, Wide Outs, Fire Hydrant, Full Superman, and Roll Overs on the soft comfortable turf. To find out more information, contact Bob at Callori@sbcglobal.net … and yes, there was also running!
Pride Run Meeting: On Wednesday was met to go over more details of the upcoming Pride Run! It’s almost 1 month away, and we’ll be needing your help with event planning, volunteering, and anything else that pops up. If you are interested in volunteering, please email email@example.com … on a side note, the Member Fundraising Party on June 1st has been cancelled.
Upcoming Reminders: May Bar Night, Pride Parade Float Meeting, Rock Climbing, and Power House Fundraising!:
We have a bunch of fun events coming up!
May Bar Night will happen this evening at Blackbird. Full details here (link).
On Saturday after the runs/walks, we will be meeting at the Boathouse to go over details for our Pride Parade Float.
Next, Ward, our VP, has put together a fun evening of rock climbing on May 29th! It should be very fun, and the board will be covering a portion of your costs if you RSVP early. Full details here (link)! See you there!
Finally, we have our Jello-Shot fundraiser at the Powerhouse on June 1st at 10PM. All money will help cover the costs of our first-ever Pride Parade Float. It was a huge success last time, so head over again and maybe even sell some shots! Full details here (link).
We got a nice litte piece of history donated to our club archives.
Clint Seiter holds his 1st Time Runner Lavendar ribbon that he received 40 years ago. The run was on the first Sunday in January, 1974. It began near the South windmill in GG Park, and the club was named “Lavender U. Joggers” at the time. In Spring of 1980, the club we renamed “FrontRunners” based on the novel, “The Front Runner,” by Patricia Nell Warren. A big thanks to Clint for donating the ribbon!

Richard Ervais and Dennis Nix are planning a rafting trip the weekend of June 21st, 22nd, and 23. Details include: Two nights, camping, rafting in Cache Creek, 3 meals Saturday, and 2 on Sunday. Two people to a raft, so there’s no guide which makes it a lot more fun. It’s only a two a half hour drive from SF, so you come up Saturday morning if you want. Check out the website at www.cachecanyon.com. Costs for trip is $169.00. Please contact Dennis Nix 415-509-1386 or Dennis@NixCity.com to join or for questions.
Our rock star sponsors, Body Awakening, are hosting a Yoga-Posium event on the 26th at Crissy Field. Here here (link) for all of the info on the event!
That covers it for this last week.
Enjoy your weekend and see you at the runs, walks, and events!
