Thank you to everyone who has been coming out to our runs, using Slack for meet ups, and preparing for races! We're excited for the remainder of the fall season and Club XC in December. Running rewards those who train train with consistency and intelligence. PRTC assists by offering a strong network of support along the way. Join us for an upcoming run to talk training, improve motivation, or just for fun!
Upcoming Social Event Teaser: Open Mic Night!
We're envisioning this as a fun night out/mini-fundraiser. While we all have some degree of athletic skill (or at least running skill) we thought it'd be fun to give people a chance to share their creative sides. PRTC members have recorded albums, toured in bands, performed magic, headlined stand-up shows, and even competed at wing bowl. Such a diverse range of talent makes for an ideal Open Mic Night. Let us know if you'd be interested in performing or would like to help us plan (especially if you know of a venue!).
Stay tuned and Happy Halloween!
