Last Wednesday evening. . . the hottest day in our area so far this year. . .with the heat index around 104 at 6:00 p.m.. . .this very special group of runners and walkers gathered on the local trail where we used to run weekly, for a "pop up run". It was more like a reunion for many of us. The sponsors of the run, The Kansas City Running Co. and Sports Medicine retail store, opened a location in a nearby town and when they did so, the weekly event was moved there. It was a sad day for so many of us who had first "met" through these weekly, trail runs. However, the "pop up run" gave us an evening to enjoy each other's company in the location where it all began!!
Caleb, the selfie taker, manages that store. His sister, Jana, manages their store in Leawood, KS. They are such fun folks to be around plus great running motivators , advisors and event organizers.
Following the run, the KCRunning Co. treated us to refreshments at a local restaurant. I'm on the right in this picture, enjoying the company of my running buddies Jacqui (on the left) and Karen (in the center).
Before we headed over to the restaurant, the KCRunning Co. had drawings for free stuff!! I was so thrilled to win this awesome hat that THE STONE RABBIT is modeling. A fellow runner gave me the PINK draw string bag he'd won, along with a PINK sweatband!! Gotta love those great runners!
I hope you are staying cool in your neck of the woods. It's hot here again today, but cooler than Wednesday, with the high ONLY supposed to be 90!!
