Weekly Group Run
Hello Everyone! With summer finally in full swing, let's try to de-freeze this meetup group and create a real life community out of our 200+ members! Since this group was unsuccessful in the past when trying to regularly coordinate meetups at different trail-heads around SoCal (mea culpa), let's start with something a little less ambitious this time around. Let's try a weekly group run that goes down at the same time and same place every Saturday (year round). Join us as regularly or as infrequently as possible (given injuries, travel plans, other interests, etc) Because we have so many members who are in and around West LA, we'll initially launch with a group run from 11am-noon every Saturday at Sullivan Canyon in the mountains above Santa Monica. This fire road trail is well maintained and relatively flat, and is also lined with large trees that provide quite a bit of shade. Group Run will start at 11am, and since it's an out-and-back trail, everyone can run at their own pace, and as long as we all turn around and head back at 11:30am, we should all finish together around noon. For anyone who's interested, Group Run will be followed by Group Lunch at 12:30 at the Veggie Grill on Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica. I'll try to attend Group Run as regularly as possible, but like everyone else, I won't be able to make it every week. I'll also try to bring vegan snacks as often as possible, but ultimately we're all responsible for our own hydration, nutrition, and (knock on wood) running injuries. Here's a link to a great trail guide for Sullivan Canyon (with trail pictures and directions for driving and parking): https://www.hikespeak.com/trails/sullivan-canyon/ Just look for anyone standing around the large green gate on Queensferry Rd. between 10:45-11am, and ask them if they're here for the Group Run. The first run will go down next Saturday, June 16th - hope to see some of y'all there!
