Hi everyone,

Wow, we have nearly 250 runners. ?And the great majority of you have come for a run or a clinic, which is awesome. ?A few announcements.

1. Beginners Welcome

Beginners should not be afraid to come out to our regular runs! ?We're pretty much all beginners within the past year, so don't be intimidated. ?I may schedule the occasional dedicated run for beginners after the July 4th weekend, but seriously, don't wait around for me to do that. ?Recently we've been running about 4 miles at a fairly slow pace. ?Many people do 1 mile and call it a day, which is totally fine. ?Others do a mile barefoot, then throw on their VFFs or running shoes. ?And others just wear VFFs all the time.

2. Call for T-Shirt Ideas

We thought it might be fun to have a team logo and shirts -- particularly now that we have so many runners, some of whom have been running in road races. ?If you have any ideas for logos, sayings, or t-shirts, go to the message board and comment on this thread. ?

3. New Running Areas

We will be switching up our running areas over the summer so we can explore a little. ?Who wants to run around the reservoir when we've got an entire park? ?We can try out different surfaces, trails, and roads. ?The meeting points will remain the same for the time being, but we'll keep you posted. ? If you have a suggestion, please reply to the thread on the message board.

Thanks -- look forward to seeing you all out there,

John
