Love to run? Love to read? Do both!
Love to run? Love to read? Do both! Join fellow Charlotte Run Club members in the fifth meeting of our Running Book Club. Every other month we read a different book focused around running then meet for an (optional) run followed by a discussion of the book over food and beverage. Join the Running Book Club facebook group for discussion in between meets: https://www.facebook.com/groups/CRCRunningBookClub/
For November our book will be “The Way of the Runner: A Journey into the Fabled World of Japanese Running” a book by Adharanand Finn, author of the well know “Running with the Kenyans”. This time his focus is on the run-obsessed culture of the nation of Japan. Did you know they are the most running obsessed country on Earth? It promises to be both a fun and educational glimpse into another culture. This book is available on Amazon in all (including audio) formats. https://www.amazon.com/Way-Runner-Journey-Japanese-Running/dp/1681771217
In keeping with the theme and trying to eat and run in new areas, let's meet for discussion, drinks (sake!) and food (sushi!) at Co at Park Road preceded by an optional run on Little Sugar Creek Greenway for a 3-5 mile route (you can loop around the lake in Freedom Park for about 5 miles or just go out and back a 1.5 for 3.)
The 4.5 mile Route is here, but you can cut it in half or add more miles easily in the park: https://www.strava.com/routes/9563544
Meet in front of Co and we will run from there to the Little Sugar Creek entrance at 12. After the run we will all meet back at Co by 1 for the discussion. I will provide a few small appetizers as usual courtesy of the Charlotte Running Club (and you can get yourself drinks and/or lunch).
