Change of weather/heart, WE RUN TODAY!!

Well, today we're just going with gut instinct.  Let's hope the weather agrees with us as we officially open the 2013 Beer Runners' Season with tonight's run to L'amere a boire.  We'll get started at 7pm, leaving from 1400 avenue des pins ouest for convenience of the guaranteed runners, but welcome anyone to meet us around 7:15 at Tam Tams for the last legs of the run or directly at the bar!

Running doubtful for Wednesday, guaranteed for April 3rd

Well the weather forecast does seem to be fluctuating on a daily basis right now, but given the amount of melting snow and possibility for more rain/snow between today and Wednesday, we most likely won't be running this week.  I am hereby guaranteeing though that we will start April 3rd, rain or shine (there can't be more snow, right?).  We will start with some quick, easy runs to get everybody back into the groove, but do expect the recommended routes to get a bit longer this year compared to last.

Again, please remind your friends/co-workers/anyone who is a beer drinker or advocate of using their feet that this is one of the best clubs in the city.  We are looking to spread the word to all corners of the city this year and get people out enjoying the experience.

Was gonna say let's run tomorrow, but....

I was excited all weekend with the prospect that we could actually get a run in tomorrow, but with the temperature expected to be around 0 at 7PM with 40% of rain, I think we may have to wait just a bit longer.  Regardless, get yourselves to Hurley's tomorrow night for a St. Patrick's Day warmup, we'll be sure to at least get one good car bomb in!

Welcome March, goodbye snow?

Well people, it looks like hopefully we've gotten past the worst of what winter can offer.  It's now time for sugar shacks, less ice, and hopefully more running.  While we're not gonna be so dumb as to jump the gun and get running quite yet, we could be looking at starting around the end of the month if things progress as they are.

In the meantime, we've got a few great bars lined up for the month.  The first few may not be as runner friendly, so we want to get them out of the way sooner than later.  Hurley's will be our St. Patty's warm-up, so for those that want to be good and ready for the weekend this is the best way to get your practice in.

Ideas will be kicking around soon about shirts, new members, new destinations, and the whole lot.  Come join us and give your input, and let's make it a great summer to run.
