Yesterday was the three-year anniversary of the first race that North Brooklyn Runners ran!

Yes, it was three years ago that NYRR added the “North Brooklyn Runners” option to the Team drop-down menu and three of us signed up to run the City Parks Foundation – Run for the Parks 4 Miler on April 5, 2009. It’s amazing to see how much the team has grown over the past three years! At the time of the race, NBR was only a few months old and we didn’t have uniforms, or a website, or even a quarter of the organized runs we have now. And even though so much has changed in NBR, the core idea of the team being open to anyone who loves running no matter how fast or slow, or whether they race or not, or even if they live in Brooklyn or not, is still true today = ].

Thanks to Aja for founding the team! And thanks to NBR for three awesome years of racing. If I didn’t have such great people to run with i know I wouldn’t have stuck with running again this long. Oh and thanks for making it impossible for me to run a race and not immediately follow it with brunch.
