SCHEDULE

Please join us for our regular weekly early morning group trail runs on:

6 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Berkeley, and 10 AM on Sundays (easy) in Oakland or Berkeley.

• Other runs take place in Oakland and in other areas of the East Bay.


ABOUT

Where

Discover and learn local trails using maps, with a group! Trail runs typically take place in the East Bay: Redwood, Strawberry Canyon, Tilden, Cesar Chavez parks. We run in darkness, rain, and/or sun.


What

Regular runs include: weekday morning training runs (5+ miles of trail fartlek, tempo, hill repeats), easy Sundays (~3-7 mi.), and weekend long runs (12 to 30+ mi.) with pace groups as needed. Special runs include: no-drop social runs, Women's, Midsummer Night, and Family Holiday season trail runs/hikes.


Who

We meet out on the trails together for safety and camaraderie.

This is a private, small group of local, active members of various speeds, ages, and abilities. Our active members are family, friends, and neighbors. Members know their own limits and respect them, and practice Leave No Trace. Members participate in-person and train consistently for trail events, 5Ks to ultras (e.g., trail races by Inside Trail Racing, Brazen Racing, The North Face Endurance Challenge, TRT, American River 50, etc.). We also occasionally list cross-training meets (e.g., yoga, hiking, socials, etc.) that support performance and overall well-being.


This group's events, organized by unpaid VOLUNTEERS, are for people who love nature, running on our local East Bay trails, and community. This is not a coached group.


If you are looking for a trail running coach, check out the LMJS website. For evening trail runs, check out Berkeley running club and Salomon run club.

Race and fitness goals

"Join forces. While many runners embrace the solitude of running, numerous studies highlight the benefits of working out with others, including greater satisfaction with exercise, increased motivation to set and reach goals, and greater consistency." <br> -- The Bliss List, Runner's World


"A race can give you something to focus on, an opportunity to be part of the running community, and a way to celebrate your training." -- Training Tips: Trail Running, Five Tips From Champion Ultrarunner Michael Wardian





Volunteering

Volunteering is a great way to support and help sustain the running community and environment. Members of our group have volunteered for local community events, such as those by: The North Face Endurance Challenge, East Bay Parks, Girls on the Run, Inside Trail Racing, and International-California Coastal Cleanup by the bay trail.

Our motto: "Run, have fun, respect others, and respect nature!"

(Eat, repeat... :)*


Interested? Join us.

See you on the trails!

Hiking in Marin: Mountains, Meadows, Marshes and Mist

Mill Valley, CA

Hiking in Marin: Mountains, Meadows, Marshes and Mist

This group is for everyone who wants to explore the stunning beauty and remarkable trails of verdant Marin County. We spend much of our time hiking among the majestic redwoods, but we'also take advantage of Marin's glorious coastal-trail views, its high peaks, and its many streams and waterfalls -- sometimes all in the same hike!


Many of our hikes are fairly moderate in both distance and pace, though we do mix in longer hikes with more vertical, as well as occasional beginner hikes. But regardless of distance, virtually all of our hikes are limited in attendance, so that we can ensure everyone's safety and attempt to keep the group together as much as possible. Smaller groups also make for a more intimate, natural experience in the wilderness, which is particularly important to us because we like to get off the well-known trails as much as possible. There are plenty of 100-hikers-and-a-cloud-of-dust groups on Meetup, rampaging along the fire roads. This is not one of them.


Because we limit numbers, the majority of our hikes have wait lists. If you join a waitl ist, you are expected to monitor it, and your email, to find out whether you have moved up to confirmed. RSVPs and wait lists will close at 5 pm the night before the hike, and no one will move up after that time, so you don't have to worry about a late-night promotion to confirmed that you don't see until the next morning. 5 pm the night before is also the deadline for anyone on the confirmed list to cancel an RSVP.


PLEASE NOTE: If you fail to show up for a hike with a wait list, or cancel at the last minute, you'll be removed from the group. It's a one-strike policy. Be fair -- let someone else have your spot when you decide not to go.


If all of that sounds good, then please join us as we explore the striking beauty awaiting us in our local forests, mountains and coastal trails.


Let's go hiking in Marin!

Volleyball. Training and Playing. Ocean Beach, San Francisco

San Francisco, CA

Volleyball. Training and Playing. Ocean Beach, San Francisco

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE GROUP?

Training and Playing was started out of the need to have more volleyball training locations available to the average, adult volleyball player. Up until now if you wanted to learn and improve your volleyball skills you would normally look online under “Volleyball in the area”, join a group that seemed appealing, and hopefully be accepted and learn by playing.

You probably found that most groups are looking for players who are intermediate or better. The few groups where beginners are welcome would not really have training available.

With Training and Playing you can get around like minded players who are wanting to train and get to playing as soon as possible. Besides players what else do you need to play volleyball? Balls, nets, courts, training courts, training nets. These are all available upon request.


WHO SHOULD JOIN?

IF you are an intermediate or advanced level player who has not found a group of players who are looking to improve their skills, come join us and get better faster.

If you are a novice or beginner who really needs to work on the basics, come join us and quickly get to the next level of play.

If you are a student player who has found that going the club route is way too expensive, come check us out.

If you just want to play volleyball and are a fun and generous person you should definitely come. We’ve been looking for you!


WHAT WILL YOU DO AT THE EVENTS?

First you will set up a training court.

Although this is training the main drill you will do is pepper. Is there a right way to pepper? Check this out: https://youtu.be/k-gqpvFq4Gw

We use pepper to warm up. Here are 12 variations of pepper. Three variations can be done with a net but don’t require a net. bit.ly/3CNO1wl

We then go into cooperative play, using the training court, where we focus on improving one or several skills at a time. You’re essentially peppering or playing; you play every ball as much as possible. It is during this time that you ask the players you’re practicing with for help on improving and you also offer tips that can help your fellow players. Here’s a video of players doing cooperative play. https://youtu.be/0-LPqjsZrPM

Finally, you do competitive play. There are rules bit.ly/2ZrDkky Here are a few videos of players doing competitive play https://youtu.be/Z2dDf7fscDo and https://youtu.be/zugeVkgJU0M

Box Club Social San Francisco

San Francisco, CA

Box Club Social San Francisco

Box Club Social lets you meet new people without leaving home! Cool virtual events plus fun boxes delivered to your door equals a new way to socialize & connect! With a curated mix of free and paid events, you'll be able to meet new people in a whole new way.

The pandemic has turned socializing upside down, and it's particularly hard to meet new people. We make it fun to interact with people with similar interests, both locally and across the country.

All of our events are hosted and designed for easy interactions. Whether it's a scavenger hunt from the comfort of your own home, becoming an actor in a vintage radio play, or a gentle evening of arts and crafts, we're sure to have something that you'd like to do. And sure, we do fun things, but more importantly we get to know each other in a safe way.

And the interactions don't have to stop when the Zoom call ends. Our website features messaging and forums so that you can keep talking after the event is over without having to give out your personal information. Finish a conversation started in a room or make a date to meet up at the next social. Our mission is connecting people.

Box Club Social strives to have a mixture of free and paid events. We love our boxes and fill them full of things we think you’ll love, too, While free events don't include our special boxes, many of the paid events will include all of the items you need to participate delivered straight to your door, plus a little extra. But our real mission is to create a vibrant community of people, and money should not be a barrier for anyone being a part of that. So register on our website for free and come to our events at the price point that works for you.

We have many more events than are listed here on meetup. Create a free account at our website at https://boxclubsocial.com/ to see our full calendar, including our box offerings.

As always, you can message us directly if you have any questions or suggestions for new events!

See you soon!

英語の発音をネイティブ化するグループ in San Francisco

San Francisco, CA

英語の発音をネイティブ化するグループ in San Francisco

Lingo Mii 発音グループは英語の発音をネイティブ化するミートアップグループです。英語の発音に困っている方は必見です!

ネイティブスピーカーとお話しした時、全く発音が通じずショックを受けたことはありませんか?

実は、英語の発音には日本語で発音できるものは一つも存在していません。そもそも、今まで発音の練習を体型的に行うチャンスはありましたでしょうか?人によっては中学、高校、大学と英語を勉強してきたと思うのですが、そこに「発音」というカテゴリーはありませんでした。

私たちは、LAに本社をおき、現地の大学の音声学、発音学の研究者と各国から来たESL(English Second Language)の人の発音改善支援プロジェクトを進めております。

特に、最近では、AIが発達してきておりあなたの発音を定量的に測定することが可能になってきております。当プロジェクトは最新テックと人間による指導のハイブリッド型の学習方法が効果的であることがわかってきており、その学習方法を実践していきます。


このグループは目的とレベルに分けて下記のように毎週開催しています。まずは気軽にご参加ください。参加後移動してもらうこともできます。

Girls Rule!!!! For Women ages 50+

San Mateo, CA

Girls Rule!!!!  For Women ages 50+

SAFETY FIRST!!! This group is for ONLY FULLY vaccinated peninsula 50+ women.


Hello Girls!!!! Get out of your pajamas and let's have some fun!!!! It is time to get out and mingle. You can do it!!!! Some of us have gotten a little too comfortable staying home this past year.

This Meetup is for women ONLY, ages 50+ who live on the peninsula. Please read the WHOLE description BEFORE you join this group.

<br>

The following are just some of the events that might be happening soon. If you have any suggestions or hear of a community event that you might think will be fun, please let me know. Also, if you wish to ever host, please let me know.

<br>

Some of the events might be:

Movies

Happy Hour

Game Night

Monthly Book Club

Mah Jongg - American (unless someone can teach me another version)

Bingo

Trying new restaurants

Bunco

Cooking Classes

Easy Hiking

Biking

Outdoor Concerts

Bocce Ball

Male Strip Clubs (okay, that was a joke)

And anything else that might sound fun to you.

<br>

There will be NO RSVP fee for any event. BUT, being a Meetup organizer is not free. I will be charging an annual $12.00 Non-refundable Membership fee. The Membership fee will be due and collected at your first event (unless I get Venmo or PayPal setup) and then it will be good for one year from the date you paid. This fee is non-refundable, meaning, you will not get reimbursed for whatever reason, including this Meetup group gets delete or cancelled for whatever reason and/or it you get delete from the group. If you join this group and do not attend any events within the first 4 months of signing up, you will be removed from the group. Even though you have paid Membership fees, you are still responsible for showing up at the events that you RSVP for. If you have 3 no shows, you will be removed from the group on your 3rd no show. If you cancel at the last minute, meaning, within in a couple of hours before the meetup event starts or you message me after the meetup starts, you will be removed. Considerate people only please.

<br>

If an event is hosted at a private house, the owner of the house is in charge of their guest list. They can pick and choose who they would like to attend. This might mean that a private home event might automatically go into a waitlist and the owner of the home will be able to create the guest list themselves (meaning, they can pick and choose who comes into their home).

<br>

IMPORTANT: I am not liable or responsible for you in anyway, shape or form for any event that you attend within this group. You are responsible for yourself at any events posted in this group. When you RSVP for an event, you are in agreeance to this information. No outside guests allowed at events posted on this Meetup.
