Running With Nature

Way back in the off-season (February?  Wow, time flies) we told you about an Alabama dog named Ludivine who decided to join the Trackless Train Trek Half Marathon and placed 7th.  Well, since then there have been a few more animals who’ve decided to join races recently including an elk in Oregon’s Bunny Hop 5K and a family of bears at last week’s Golden Nugget Triathlon in Alaska.  Now as far as I know only a couple of marmots showed up for Bloomsday, although I couldn’t confirm if any of them actually finished.  We may see some again on this week’s run as we’ll be on the trail in beautiful Kendall Yards.  Come join us for a run and some great beer courtesy of No-Li!  See you at 6:00 PM this Thursday at Ripples!
