I'm likely going to take some time to get some running in during AC 2015. A nice jog along the river path. Anyone is welcome to join me.

It'll probably be the Saturday of the con. Will change the day only if the weather is severe. Mild rain doesn't scare us! Right guys?

 

Thank you for your patience, everyone! I have an update for you.

Here are the details for the run!

Meeting Location: Bottom of the waterfall walkway beneath the convention center.

Meeting Time: Saturday the 11th at 9:00am. Try to not be late, please Smiling

What to wear/bring: Comfortable clothing that doesn't restrict movement, a bottle of water, a small carrying pack, persistence, determination, and teamwork.

We will begin with a run, *but this won't just be a run!* We will be doing some fun group challenges that will require that we work together. 

You're not stuck with me. If you have panels or events you would like to attend, you may leave as you please.

Even though this little event is separate from the convention, I think it would be nice to show some support for the charity that Anthrocon is promoting this year. If I am shown a certain number of charity ribbons (remember you can purchase multiple!), we will all play a super fun game that I GUARANTEE you all will enjoy. I really hope the secret quota is met, because I'm very excited to play this with you all.

Sounds nice! Might not be able to join, but it'd do my health some good to get back into running. Can't sit on my butt all day over there!

I'm interested too but it will not sound as fun in 90+ Degree Weather in July. Remind me to pack some shorts.

Get up early at Anthrocon? Hah!

But seriously, great idea. Let's make that decision and choose a day once AC releases it's schedule of events.

This sounds fun! I am a slow runner, my best 5k was 39 minutes, and I'm slower now after the long, cold winter...but I'm back to running every day again! I might join you :)

Heh. The type of parkour I do is too boring for a camera laughing hard . Since I train parkour for fitness and control (as opposed to flair and show), I'm usually never more than 2-3 feet off the ground. And flips? I can do them, sure. Haven't focused on them in years because they don't fit my goals.

The focus of this gathering will be the run! And perhaps afterwards, if people are interested at all, I'll show people what parkour was before people with cameras got hold of it  Sticking out tongue

hey you know? I was just randomly remembering that movie "Roxanne" with Steve Martin - there is a specific scene, where Roxanne locks herself out of her house, and CD Bailes [Martin's character] is with her, and said basically, no problem, ill help.

And he proceeds to climb the tall structure to the top, in order to get inside and unlock her front door! Laughing out loud

unfortunately I cant seem to find the scene on YT but, I wonder if that stunt, is considered to be 'parkour-like.'

hmm.. oddly enough, I'm one of those early risers at a con to, and though my "Running" days aren't really ever going to return(Bad knees), might see what i can do if it ends up being in the morning.

I'm doing a run friday morning. Along the river sounds nice. I run about a 9min mile. I tend to run 3/4 miles. 5 minute warmup / 5 minute cool down. If anyone is interested let me know and we can meet up.

Depending on the time of the Saturday run i may join that. I'm planning on hitting the gym Saturday morning so a slower run could be nice.
