This Thursday our Thursday night trail crew got together at Mendon Ponds Park and decided to have a winter " RunBQ" after our weekly trail run.
Trailgating at our RunBQ
A local running store has a Thursday night series that runs Spring through the fall – We decided to continue the series through the rough Rochester winter – and last night in celebration of making it through the winter – we had a winter Run-B-Q.
I am proud to say this group ran every single Thursday all winter – single digit temps – thick heavy snow – ice covered dark trails – we did it all. We made it through till spring and we are ready to rock some summer trails now soon!!
We ran a bit over 5 miles last night on a hilly course through the park and then got a nice campfire going and cooked out into the darkness.
It was about 25 degree with some serious wind yet there was no where else I would have rather been than there last night.
So we have developed this amazing group of tight -knit runners – Most of us didn’t know each other last April – and this April we are training partners, drinking partners, Run B Q folks and most of all-
That’s what running can do for you. It’s pretty powerful stuff!
