8:30PM – 9:15PM
(right after the Tuesday Night Tempo Run )
Paramount for runners is avoiding being stopped in their tracks by the specter of injury. Any runner who has dealt with the discomfort and lost time involved in recovering from an injury knows that prevention is a better policy. Preventing injury is precisely where stretching comes in.
Linda Minarik, author of Stretching with Ease, will lead you through a 15-to-30 minute stretch presentation, with Q&A, to help you stay at the top of your running game. In our presentation we will address when and how to stretch as it relates to the running workout/race.
Join us on Tuesday 2/9 after the Tuesday Night Tempo Run. Location will be updated shortly.
(right after the Saturday Williamsburg Bridge Run – join us for coffee even if you can’t make the run @ 9:00)
Have you been THINKING about running with NBR but haven’t actually gotten out yet? Well stop lurking and start running. Join us for our New Member Coffee at the McCarren Park Recreation Center.
Learn more about NBR, meet other members, and find out about some of the fun stuff coming up—races, brunches, the Gala, volunteering opportunities, how to get one of those cool NBR shirts we wear, etc.
Everyone is welcome, whether you’ve never made it to a run or you’ve been running with us for years. Google Group and Facebook lurkers are especially encouraged to come meet the team and start running with us.
For those doing the 9 a.m. Bridge Run and Coffee, we’ll end the run at the McCarren Park Rec Center. The run (which is good for all paces) starts at the base of the Williamsburg Bridge. You don’t have to do the Bridge Run to come to coffee.
Uh, there will be donuts and bagels too!!
Stop by any time between 9:30 a.m.— 12 p.m. See you there!

Wednesday – 8:30 PM (after Wed Night Run)
Safety is an important, and often overlooked, concern when running on city streets, in large groups, with various paces, sometimes in cold temperatures. Please join our NBR Runner Safety Forum following the Wednesday night road run on January 20th. The forum will be led by our very own safety expert Steven Kvalheim! Bring your own tips too – everyone should come ready to talk about safe running, ‘running etiquette’, and discuss ideas they have to make us all safe on the mean streets of North Brooklyn.
