Several of us (Bethany, Cindy, Donna, Ed, Elaine, Jason, Juan, Julie, Lori?, Nina, Pam, Rosemarie, Sandi) will be taking the night off from running and going to see a running movie instead.  We’ll also be having dinner at Pei Wei before the movie.  The restaurant is conveniently located right across the street from where the movie is showing.  Please come join us!  It’ll be fun and something different!

If you prefer to skip the movie and want to run instead…come join John at the Fullerton Loop.  It’s  a nice shady run and you’ll be burning more calories than those of us spending the evening sitting.

Run:  We’ll meet by the trail near the Fullerton Courthouse at 6:00 p.m. (close to the intersection of Brea Blvd. & Harbor Blvd….behind the Ralph’s) 1275 N. Berkeley Ave. Fullerton, CA 92832. We park in the lower parking lot.  If you run around Laguna Lake and back…that is 5 miles.

Dinner (Before the movie):  We’ll be at Pei Wei at 5:30 p.m. to around 6:35 p.m.  It is located adjacent to Men’s Wearhouse.  The address is:  985 E. Birch St. Brea   If you will be arriving after 5:30…you can text one of us and we’ll save you a seat.

Movie:  If you are skipping dinner and just coming to the movie, we’ll meet near the entrance at 6:45 p.m.  Text one of us if you can’t find us and we’ll try to save you a seat in the theater so we can all sit together.  This is the movie we’ll be watching:  “RUN FREE – The True Story of Caballo Blanco”

Where:  Curtis Theatre at the Brea Civic and Cultural Center, 1 Civic Center Circle, in Brea. (Just off of Birch St.)

Date:  Tuesday, September 1st

Time:  7:00 p.m.

Price:  $12 in advance  http://www.imathlete.com/events/EventOverview.aspx?fEID=23540  or $15 at the door the night of the show

The feature-length documentary is about ultra-running legend Micah True. Better known as Caballo Blanco – the White Horse – True, was the focal character of Christopher McDougall’s 2009 best-selling book “Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen” about the Tarahumara Indians of northern Mexico. The one-night-only event is sponsored by A Snail’s Pace running store and club.

SU’s Sierra Club Hike:  Su led her first hike for the Sierra Club this past Saturday…and she did a great job!  She invited her running buddies to come along on the hike to the Ice House Saddle.  It was a great hike with a lot of wonderful scenery along the way and plenty of shady trails to help keep us cool.  We all had so much fun that we want Su to lead us on another hike soon!  Here are some photos from Sandi and me:
