North Brooklyn Runners’ Fundraiser: Sneaker Drive 2013 by nbrwebjohn

NBR2-52af3d343f65fHey NBR friends and family! We have joined forces with a few other running clubs (Dashing Whippets, NYAC, Mercury Masters, and VCTC, so far) to help raise funds for NYRR’s Sneaker Drive. All funds raised will go towards purchasing proper running shoes (at a discount) for needy children who participate in NYRR’s no-fee youth running programs. A lot of these kids have to make do by running in street shoes, basketball shoes, etc. Your donation – of any amount – will go a long way.

NBR Holiday Party by nbrwebjohn

Save the date. Save your ugly sweaters. Save room for latkes.


‘Twas the night before Friday, when all thro’ the nest
Ever runner was stirring, owls, doves and the rest;
The sneakers were hung by the pool table with care,
Because Coach Chu had spilled some beer over there;
The Whippets were nestled all snug in their beds,
While we were up into the night, eating Latkes instead.
And Logan in his ‘kerchief, and Fernando in his sweater,
Said hello to the new girl, for they had just met her —
When out on the track there arose such a clatter,
We sprang from our core form to see what was the matter.
Away to the bins we all ran like a flash,
Whether forefoot or heel strike, for this was a holiday bash!

It’s that time of year again!
It’s the NBR Holiday Party!
Time to get sweaty at the track in an ugly sweater and then head on over to the nest for a very special holiday nesting night.
