I'm looking forward to meeting all of you and getting A Runner's Mind Run Club started on Saturday at 9:30AM @ A Runner's Mind (3575 Sacramento St)!
You will receive a more substantive email later tomorrow with a link to the comprehensive training schedule for this season and a TON of additional details, but I wanted to give you some info. that might be useful in the interim.
-Parking! Admittedly, finding parking right in front of A Runner's Mind can be challenging and it's mostly metered. The good news is you can find PLENTY of free parallel parking on Clay and/or Washington just a block or two away.
-Test driving. If you have a friend or two who are interested in checking Run Club out, feel free to extend them an invite. Saturday's launch is largely a glorified orientation/launch party (hence the mimosas and pancakes!) and we're only covering '2' miles on Saturday. So, we're not doing a TON of running.
-Run Club price goes up $10 EOD FRIDAY. If you know anyone who wants to join, but has NOT signed up yet, encourage them to sign up before EOD FRIDAY as the price for full-time/part-time participation goes up $10 EOD FRIDAY.
-A Runner's Mind VIP gift package and raffle prizes! Yet another reason to sign up before EOD Friday is to make sure you get a VIP gift package and are eligible for the raffle prizes we're giving away on Saturday. The VIP gift package from A Runner's Mind inclues a reusable bag, a water bottle, a $20 ARM giftcard, NUUN samples, and much more!
Additionally, all officially registered Run Club team members will be entered into our raffle which includes a free entry to the Jig & Jog 5K, The Sasquatch Scramble, A Runner's Mind giftcards, and more!
-$5 off The Jig & Jog 5K on Sun, 3/20! This fun, locally produced Jig & Jog 5K is managed by official Run Club sponsor, A Runner's Mind! Use the code MMRUN to get $5 off this one. BTW, there's a really cool run club challenge associated with this event. The more people who use the MMRUN code, the better! If we win the challenge, A Runner's Mind will host a party for us complete with food, beer, wine, and more! To boot, they'll cut us a check for $1,000! I'd use this cash to produce some SWEET Run Club hats!
-10% discount on The Presidio 10 Miler/10K on Sun, 4/17! We have a few target events this season and one of them is The Presidio 10! This awesome event includes an epic run through the Presidio and across the Golden Gate Bridge, a hot breakfast, post race beers/bloody marys, and more. To boot, I've got the hook up for you!

I'm working on getting you discounts for a few other races we're targeting this season, so stay tuned!
