BRC Run – 3/5 – 0645 – Salem – 12.9 mi [BORDERs]

04. March 2022 News 0

Instant Gratification for Everyone!

Frank has set the date. Now we’ve got one last push for you to get those borders. In days of yore, one had to wait for specific borders to be planned, and then determine if one were free that Saturday. Sometimes people missed their last border for months, or even longer. These days, who has time for that? My interest may very well wane with the capricious nature of the multitude of leisure activities presented to me. In fact, knowing that Emmett needed this particular border, the little imp on my shoulder suggested I make him wait for it. Then I heard that Alyssa may also need this border, and (since I don’t know her well enough to mess around that way) the devil on the other shoulder said “Look, the temperature will only get to 15° or 16° by the time they start… That’s PLENTY bad weather.” Because I remembered that this run should be completed when it’s not perfect running weather.  Maybe I’ll get home someday and get to run with new members and RWOBs the way nature intended.  You should take advantage of this opportunity and make the RWOBs run with you at your pace, and mix it up some. You might make a new …friend.

As I said, Frank set the Date.

Frank called it. It looks like Thursday, March 17th is the next BRC Induction Night. It will be held on the Common. Ski movies are optional, but the fun and friendship is mandatory. (Don’t worry, I hear most people in Massachusetts are used to mandates by now.)  Bring some folding money for a donation to the organizations hosting this event, and the food. Bring along some beverages? Any RWOBs out there looking for particular borders be aware that this Saturday and next Saturday are the last weekend runs before the big day. And I don’t yet know what next week holds, but…Instant Gratification!


Another BRC Team

Carol was looking ahead and set up a BRC Team option for Yankee Homecoming on Tuesday, August 2nd. Come out and have a great midweek run for a change.

That’s two team runs that I know of, including the Coleen Ritzer 5K.
