It’s time to celebrate the holidays together! We are *SO* excited to have an amazing week of holiday-themed events lined up!
First up is our Holiday Party! The party takes place Wednesday, December 11th at the Eastwood American Legion Post 1276 (102 Nichols Ave, Syracuse, NY 13026). The party starts at 6:00pm. Just a reminder that there will be NO group run Wednesday night. Please note: DO NOT PARK ALONG THE FENCE. This is reservered for the veterans so please be respectiful. Please enter through the Lounge entrance which is located on the side of Nichols Ave.
We ask that you please bring a dish to pass. There is a spreadsheet which you can see by clicking this link: LERC 2019 Holiday Dish to Pass List. If you are bringing something that is in a crockpot and has to be kept warm it would be great if you could bring an extension cord/power strip as well….if you have one hanging around. No biggie but it is very helpful.
The drinks are great (so I’m told) and the drinks are cheap! DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE! I know many of you have DD’s set up and I’m so proud of you! Remember that there are Uber/Lyft options as well. If you can’t afford one come and see me and we will get you a ride home…there is no excuse!
Dress is code is to wear whatever the hell you want to wear. But please note that many of us like to use this rare occasion to be around each other and not be sweaty and stinky and get dressed up a little. So wear whatever you are comfortable in or feel free to go all out!
There will be a great holiday selfie station, great raffles, great music, great food…and the best part…great friends!
And then Thursday, December 12th is our CITY LIGHTS RUN!
The run starts at Freedom of Espresso in Franklin Square and will be taking off at 6:00pm. We will then run along the streets of Syracuse and stop at many of the major city light displays (Clinton Square tree, city hall, the most, etc.). It’s like a running photoshoot thats festive and fun!
SAFETY AND AWARENESS IS A MUST FOR THIS RUN! The streets are open and traffic is moving. We leave no one behind and there will be people helping by running up to the lights and intersections to help make sure everyone is safe but please note that YOU are responsibile for your own safety. Be sure to wear bright lights and MAKE THEM FESTIVE! Light yourself up like a goddamn christmas tree! Make yourself jingle like a bell!
This post is already too long so I will save the information for Saturday until later in the week. WE CAN’T WAIT TO CELEBRATE THE SEASON WILL YOU ALL!
