Casual Thursday is all about getting to know each other in our group while running. I like to say 'If you cant talk to your neighbor, then your running too fast'. The official time for this meetup is 7pm. However, A very dedicated CORE of runners have been showing up at 6:15pm for an early lap.
We unoffcially run counter clockwise around the outer track of Greenlake at 6:15, then regroup at Road Runner and all collective run clockwise at 7pm. This is done so if your late due to traffic you can still catch our group by heading in the oppossite direction around the lake.
Afterwards many of us head out to a local pub or restaurant to socialize. Chuck has been posting a survey of selected pubs that we think our appropriate. We are always open to suggestions, but those need to be emailed directly to Chuck. If you have suggestion you need to keep a couple of things in mind.
The venue must be able to hold minimally 40 people,
Must be within 3 miles (exceptions have been made),
Venue must seperate the check to individuals,
Be reasonable priced ($[masked] per meal).
Venue should also be prepared for a loud, talkative crowd. Cause that's what we are. Friendly, Talkative, Open and Out going. I wouldn't have it any other way.
