Newsletters — The Long Run

Next Newsletter Stuffing Wed, Feb 22 @ 6:00 PM

(3 days from now)

Newsletter Stuffings *** change in venue, now at Penrose Library, 20 N Cascade ***directions



Every month a bunch of fun-loving folks have a great time talking about running and races, sipping refreshments, and enjoying yummie hot pizza...oh, and they also get the newsletter ready for mailing. But that just takes a few minutes once the right hand knows what the left is doing and everyone melds into a finely tuned insert-staple-label mailing machine. You will get to talk with several board members and race directors and have the chance to talk to other avid runners. Come be a part of this fun and join us at the Penrose Library, 20 N Cascade, on the last Wednesday of each month starting at 6 pm. For more information, e-mail to editor@pprrun.org.

The newsletters below are in PDF format. The files tend to be large, so downloading the files works best with a high-speed internet connection. If you are on a dial-up connection, you may want to initiate the download and then go out for a run.

History Trail Run Articles, by Jack Anthony. Learn the history along the 17-mile New Sante Fe Regional Trail.

Running In The Gutter, by Michael Shafai. This article won the 2005 RRCA West Region Journalism Award for Club Writer. It was originally published in the May 2005 issue of The Long Run.
