First of all, thanks to Mike for getting the blog set up!
A few people have expressed (myself included) a desire to run different routes to spice up the Tuesday and Thursday runs. If there's a sizable contingent that agrees, let's start doing a different run on Thursdays.
I'm happy to map out some runs and post the maps here on the blog before the run so people can see where they are. We'd still meet at the store and run in the surrounding neighborhoods.
Additionally, CCRC is looking to expand the membership of the club - how do all of you think we can attract more people to the runs? And, once they come, to make sure they keep coming back?
A few of the ideas that have been bandied about:
-getting a coach to help with programs for a group that's training for the same race (like the Chicago Marathon)
-organizing some stuff other than running like pasta dinners (a la MCM 09) or happy hours at different venues
-setting up pacing groups for Saturday long runs (like DC Road Runners)
Please voice your opinions!
