This week is Route #6: Riverside. The way we run this route has changed due to the repaving and restriping on Riverside Drive. RUN IN THE NEW BIKE LANES on the right (inside) median – NOT ON THE LEFT shoulder where we usually have run. When running on streets with bike lanes but no sidewalks, runners may take the bike lane running into traffic when it is safer. But be prepared to yield to bikes – they have the right of way. Riverside also is one of the darker routes we run, so please remember to wear something that creates or reflects light!
We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. We run every Wednesday – rain or shine, hot or cold. You can READ HERE for more details on how our Wednesday night runs work. If you are a run/walker and/or want to get a head start, meet at 5:45pm and join our Lasty Nasty Group. No Pint Night at NRC this month, so bring a change of clothes (or not) – and head over to 3 Crow or one of the other local establishments for a drink and/or some dinner after the run.
ur Wednesday night runs can be a blast! Last week was a great example with all the kids and families out for Halloween. But when runs turn into parties, we all tend to get distracted and careless, and we do what the rest of the group is doing. EVERY runner must remember to respect traffic. This means using crosswalks, and each and every runner looking both ways for himself or herself before crossing. Shouting “car right” or “car left” helps keep other runners safe, too. Last week, crossing 5th was a problem. This week, we cross 11th from Holly to end the run. We’re all so happy to be done, that many times we forget to actually look before crossing 11th to the yellow house. Remember that is still a busy intersection and we do not have the right of way. Please be safe!
