What a weekend and no rains till today, Monday. When I check out what’s going on this week, the theme of food keeps coming up. The Eurasia space is being renovated. Tickle My Tummy is coming into a space by Agnes Scott. A MW sandwich place is opening up. The space on Church and Trinity is supposedly the best space for a restaurant. Bhojanic has a Beat The Drum Interactive Show. ChantLanta is going on at Druid Hills Baptist (not food related but interesting anyway).
The Relay For Life at Emory is on April 1st, just 32 days away. Relay For Life is a 12-hour team relay which lasts from 7pm to 7am. The idea is to get sponsored to raise money for the American Cancer Society. The race is simply run around Emory's track, so no headlamps needed! Lisa is looking to put together a team. If you are interested, contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She has officially signed up a team as "Dillman ATL Runners" (simple and easy to find). If you are interested, go ahead and join the team! Go to this page, http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/RelayForLife/RFLFY11SA?team_id=896940&pg=team&fr_id=32719 and click on "Join The Team" and follow instructions.
Here are some words from Lisa: Since this is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, the idea is to raise as much money as you can. However, if you are really not into that, I will try to raise as much as I can so just set your "goal" as low as you like. I don't want people to feel like fund-raising pressure makes you not join the team (though clearly if you can and will raise money, even better). J
The City of Decatur is looking for volunteers for the GA Marathon. The Marathon passes through Decatur and they need help.
What else is going on this weekend? Anyone want to share?
There are a bunch of local races this weekend. I posted them here, http://oakhurstrunningclub.blogspot.com/2011/02/local-races-this-weekend_28.html. The closest race is the Red Devil Dash at Druid Hills HS. Get your speed work in by running a quick 5K.
This Wednesday you will be running route 6. It’s the elephant run as named by Gail. There are the challenging hills of Delano, the grind up Rogers, and of course climbing up McClendon. The link to the route is at the bottom of this e- mail. After the run it's off to Mojo's Pizza for food, drinks and trivia.
It's still dark out there but the time change is coming and then we’ll break out other routes to run. Run safe.
Enjoy your run Wednesday night. Thanks for making the Oakhurst Running Club one of the friendliest running club in Atlanta.
