Hello!  If you are reading this then I assume you like to run and you like to eat!!  I know I do!  And while I enjoy a tough run on my own I like to run even more with friends!  It's kind of amazing the friendships you can form while traversing the Lakefront Path together!  So, why not extend that friendship with a brunch or dinner afterward??  Some Meetups will have an optional fun run beforehand and some might just be a good excuse to dress up and hang out.  I'm also an avid racer so if there is an upcoming race you are interested in feel free to post a Meetup!  I'm always open to suggestions!
