Want to join me for a run during the con? (2015) UPDATE!!!!
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
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 need more exercise, plus it be a good way to see the city.... If I was able to attend ~.~ Lol. The soonest that I can attend Anthrocon is 2018 lol. Well, I can take comfort that my friend cant go till 2020! XD
Could be something fun!
I'd love to join ye if that's alright.
Absolutely! Keep an eye out for updates on this thread!
My measly few push-ups are as much excersice I get. :/
I'm interested too but it will not sound as fun in 90+ Degree Weather in July. Remind me to pack some shorts.
Yikes, that's warm. We could try go earlier in the morning before the heat sets in if folks are up for it?
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.
I'll come running with ya! If my feet will allow me this year I LOOOVVEEEE RAAAAIIINNNNNNNNNN -dances in the rain-
Oh, I might just want to join. Might as well plan to continue running once there. Ahaha ^^
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 :)
Sweet! I'll be perusing this thread when AC gets a little closer. I'll be sure to reach out as the con approaches
I'd love to join also... pending staffly duties of course ^_^
Hopefully schedules will become more clear approaching July. I'll be in touch with everyone to gauge a good time to hold this.
A Stampede of the Beasts...hehehe, I like it. Depending on Saturday's con schedule...count me in.
looks like fun! might want to do this ... used to run years ago, not as much run-stamina as I used to have. ill have to start running again, to get ready ...
It'll definitely be fun Prior running experience will always help, but it's not a requirement.
Im up for a good run.
and maybe you could do some parkour jumps for the camera ^^
Heh. The type of parkour I do is too boring for a camera . 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
So you are a true parkourer then. Thats awesome.
Im not in shape to do that stuff. (hell, im surprised that im agreeing to run) lolz.
cant wait to meet up.
this'll be my first time there.... so i hope i dont get lost....
And I'm gonna film it all with a flying camera drone.
I actually did a little parkour last weekend, guys - its fun!! even though ive never done much before, i just did a few simple tricks and went from there. great workout - and if you get tired, just rest for a little bit. makes me actually want to get in better shape, then i can do more ...
It was a pleasure meeting you I wish you could have stayed longer!
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!
unfortunately I cant seem to find the scene on YT but, I wonder if that stunt, is considered to be 'parkour-like.'
Sounds to me like the best kind of parkour. The kind that helps other people
I remember that scene, was a nice movie adaptation of the classic cyrano de bergiac(Spelled that wrong i know)
I am still 100% in dude, just let me know a specific time, no matter how early! c:
ah, I see theres a fri 10 am parkour panel on the schedule, also.
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.
Sounds like a great idea! I'd be down!
Man this is going to be a big run! I'm in!
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.
When and where do you plan to meet up?
well my left ankles a bit sprained from a few hikes i've done these past couple weeks; im ace-bandaging it and putting some cream on it [and taking it easy] but still might be able to join you guys. but, if i dont - and right now its looking like not, just for preventions sake - its because i wanna save my ankle for the dancing
Any updates on the day and time? I am so excited to tackle this with everyone! C:
An update for you, kind fur!
Good news, everyone! I updated this thread with details about the run. Take a peek at the first post in this thread and let me know if you have any questions
Sounds like a plan
Any plans to bring it to 2017?
I'll send you a quick PM so I can keep you in the loop.
If you plan on doing it next year, I would like to join.
