Your summary of the past week’s events!
Happy Friday! Here is your recap everything FrontRunners from the past week.
This last week we enjoyed June Move Night, had a great turnout at our 2012 Pride Run Member Sponsor Party, continued interval training with the San Francisco Track & Field Club, had another wonderful turnout at our Tuesday Night Run, and had a Pride Run meeting… all in addition to our usual runs!
June Movie/Game Night: On Friday, SFFR member Topher once again hosted us for an awesome evening at his home. We met around 6 to play games and make pizzas, all of which were homemade. We then watched the movie and enjoyed dinner. Thanks, Topher, for another grwat movie/game night!
Pride Run Member Sponsor Party: Bob and Chris hosted a very successful fundraiser/party on Saturday. We had around 50 people attend the event and we raised over $1,100 for our 2012 Pride Run beneficiary, Out in the Bay.
Thank you to everyone who attended, volunteered, and donated, and a special thanks to Bob and Chris for hosting, as well as Jian and Marshall for helping with the planning, setup, and food!
SF Track and Field Club Interval Training: SF Track and Field Club had 3 newbies last week, including 1 woman. Their Membership Communications Director has been very successful in recruiting, especially young folks who are anxious to restore their high school sports accolades and participation. We started witlh 2 laps around the track followed by some foot and ankle strenghtening exercises. Coach Chris Goodwin then lead us to several 30 meter advanced interval training drills which always end in 20 meter jogs. The long distance runners decided on six 80 meter sprints while the shorter distance runners ran three 150m/100m/50m sequences. We finished with some strength and core building as shown in the photo.
Unfortunately, two Frontrunners who are also Track teammates, Bob Callori and Leon Lord are in recovery mode and undertaking physical therapy for the next 8-10 weeks due to achilles problems. They are both very disappointed about not competing in the upcoming FR Pride Run on June 23 and the SFT&FC Pride Meet on July 22. For information on the club and the meets, contact Bob at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tuesday Night Run: We had over 30 people at this week’s Tuesday run along the Embarcadero. 2 newcomers joined us, as well as some members who were at a Tuesday run for their first time. Afterwards everyone grabbed dinner around the Ferry Building.
Pride Meeting: On Thursday Bob and Chris opened their home once again for a Pride Meeting. The 2012 Pride Run is less than a month away now, so planning is in full-swing. The club will definitely need volunteers so head over to our Dibs section to help out (link).
Event Reminder - June Bagel Brunch: Steve Benne of Molto Benne Catering (link) will once again provide an amazing spread of tasty food following our Saturday runs this weekend. Meet back in the Stow Lake area after the runs and enjoy the feast for only $5 per person.
Event Reminder - Sundance Saloon Country Western Dancing Night: On this coming Sunday, June 10th, Sundance Saloon has invited us to attend their country western dance lessons and evening of dancing following the lessons. For full info, head here (link).
Extra Tidbit: Frank Churchill, the original Treasurer for the club in 1979, sent us both a t-shirt and tank top from the first years of FrontRunners. Check out the tank top below!
Thanks, Bob Callori, for keeping the photo archive going with our club’s history!
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. Allow for 2 weeks between registering and having your card printed. You can also email email@example.com for a replacement.
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!
