A New Website!
We couldn’t resist in out doing ourselves once again so we schemed up a way to do just that. Well, we decided to spend a little time and money and of course enjoy a few adult beverages and designed a new website! Hopefully its all to your satisfaction! And no more complaining that you can’t view the routes or that you got lost (Jody) since the route interface is really spiffy now! Plus, if you don’t get the week’s email or you want to go back and look at old ones the weekly email will not be archived on the website. You can check out all that and more just by clicking this link: flyingirish.org Thanks to our member Selina Shehan for putting together for us!
But with the new and improved website out there we can make ourselves even more infamous. Well, actually that already happened with that Prancercise run but lets talk about recent stuff! Just a week ago the Flying Irish was featured in an online article of Runner’s World talking about the top 11 beer running clubs in the nation. Ya, take a wild guess of who made that list??? And I will just note that we are the only ones with an awesome world record to our name, a beer named after us (more to come on that in the future) and of course the largest! Boom with a humble brag 🙂 You can read the full article here:www.runnersworld.com/fun/11-great-beer-running-groups?cm_mmc=Facebook-_-RunnersWorld-_-Content-RunnerStories-_-BeerRunningGroups
Boy has the month of July started off as scorcher. But its not hot enough yet! At least not hot enough to where its a 100 degrees. If we get there on a Thursday that night’s run counts double! But also with July we have a couple of fun events planned including our annual summer Luau Party on July 31st! Also the night of the party we will be taking the annual group photo so don’t miss out. But if that doesn’t entice you to show up, how about winning a free Kona Brewery cruiser bike?I thought that might get your attention!! The more times you run in July the better your chances!
See you all Thursday!
