It is so amazing to go outside daily to watch the dry lifeless branches and brown grass slowly sprout new life. Bright blooming flowers, tiny tinny buds that become lovely green leaves. Our daily walks and runs briefly interrupted by freezing cold days and rainy stormy nights and no motivation to get outside to play are finally over. Well, let’s get our dusty shoes and short shorts out and get back on track.
On the Topic of Track…
Join us on April 12th for our 3rd annual joint run with Atlanta Track Club. This is one of our best events of the spring. Last year we had a great turn out. Bring your friends, family, and co-workers. We meet at 7pm, and take off at 7.30 sharp. No one will be left behind.
For those who come out the Urban Run Club often you must have noticed by now how excited we are about the Atlanta Beltline. Saturday April 30th, is this year’s first Beltline Race Series, 5K race. The race is now open to runners for registration (Atlanta BeltLine Northside 5K) Also, if you know you most likely will not run the race but you still want to be a part of the event there are plenty of volunteer opportunities, or you can make a donation. Here is a great link for more information.
Hope to start seeing more of our familar warm weather runners and walkers soon.
From time to time we like to suggest cool things to do around the Atlanta area. Yes this is a info source for outdoor activities, but in an effort to live well rounded healthy lives we have to look for other great stuff to fill our spare time.
Here is our list to you adventurous souls:
Be The Match invites us all to join them for a one night only event. A night of laughter to save lives. Yes, it’s that serious. Be The Match Registry Support the life-saving work of the National Bone Marrow Donor Program, which provides marrow matches to patients who have leukemia, sickle-cell, and other life threatening blood diseases. This one off show will be at the beautiful Woodruff Arts Center. (Couples who laugh together stay together. Bringing a date is encouraged but not mandatory.) Get your tickets right here.
Visit U*SPACE GALLERY to experience one of the best/most amazing collections of Brown American print works. Books, papers, comics, posters, and everything else. This collection is BEAUTIFUL! You will find it easy to spend a good couple of hours just going back in time. Check their site for hours.
Of course you know we gotta give you something active to do. Check out Atlanta Activewear located at 996 Virginia Avenue NE. This boutique active wear store offers free yoga or pilates classes on Saturdays at 9am. check their website or Facebook page for details. WE only know this because a couple of us URC founders already tested the truth of the “free” class situation. It was great. We happened to go the week one of our favorite yoga teachers was the guest instructor.
Get your buns off the sofa and do something great this weekend, YES, it is Monday, but you have to have something to look forward to.
