Pineridge Run and BBQ
Since late February, Ean and I have been hosting an every other week run and BBQ on Thursday evenings. We meet out at Spring Canyon Park down the street and run the 5 mile loop around Pineridge Natural Area. After the run we head back to the house and BBQ veggie burgers, drink beer and talk with whoever has come out for the run. It has turned in to a great event and it is often my favorite run of the week. There are a few regulars and always a few new runners to the group. Last night we had 23 people come out for the run and a few more family and kids that came for the BBQ. This has been a great way to build some community within the Fort Collins Trail running group as long time members have an opportunity to sit around and talk and new people coming out have a chance to get to know the group. The conversation ranges from recent or upcoming races, to training and nutrition plans to international politics. The run is casual, the food is good, and the company is always great. Next Pineridge social run is June 24 at 6:00 pm.
