Thursday Run (Aug. 6)

We’ll meet near the Snail’s Pace store at 6:00 p.m. We gather in front of the In Flower floral shop (1050 E. Imperial Hwy. Brea), which is located between Snail’s Pace and Tempo Urban Grill. Elaine’s Run will take us up Redwood Ave, where several homes built in the 1920’s were relocated.  Just look for the red pavers on the street and sidewalk at Birch and Redwood.

Tips for Running in Humidity:  Sandi sent this interesting article on how to deal with running on hot humid days.


BR Movie Night:  Instead of running in possibly hot humid weather…let’s get together to watch a running-related movie…in an air conditioned theater!

RUN FREE – The True Story of Caballo Blanco will premiere in Brea, CA, on Tuesday, September 1 at 7 p.m. at the Curtis Theatre at the Brea Civic and Cultural Center, 1 Civic Center Circle, in Brea. 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. Tickets are $12 in advance at www.imathlete.com/events/runfree or $15 at the door the night of the show.  Since it’s possible that tickets may sell out…it’s recommended that you purchase your tickets ahead of time.
