Run Club and Big Beef Dinner

Do you think we have enough beef?
The BBD or Big Beef Dinner has become an annual tradition for skiers here in the Twin Cities.  Our friends Matt and Kuan started the simple event around 10 years ago and it has continued to grow.  It is fantastic to connect with so many of the local skiers and supporters and enjoy the transition from one ski season to the next.  

Grilling up the beef, Korean BBQ style.  Thinly sliced, beaten, marinated and wrapped in lettuce with Kimchi
The kids have been busy at Run Club accumulating their miles and adding stickers next to their name on the Run Club board.  Collectively the kids have run 708 miles which is 2124 laps around the park.  It is pretty cool to see the progress of not being able to run one 1/3 mile lap continuously to being able to run 1 mile continuously and 2, 3, or 4 miles each day depending on the goal of the day.

Shaniyah and Kennuyanah earning their LL Bean water bottles by hitting the 10 mile mark.

Ramiah, our first runner this season to reach 26.2 miles.  She has earned a pair of FITS socks.
We have fantastic sponsors that support our athletic goals and dreams and it is wonderful that they also support our civic goals and dreams.  FITS socks has donated socks that the kids earn when they run 26.2 miles.  Thank you to LL Bean, Fruitshare and FITS

Nakitta running her way to 3rd place in overall mileage!
We have our first 5km fun run coming up next week, at Endurance United's: Go Spring Run!
