Hey Run Club!

THANK YOU to everyone who joined us at our Philanthroparty! Pictures are posted on our Facebook page thanks to our fabulous photographer of 4 years, Celisse! We can't wait to unveil our final amount...but you have to wait a little longer to find out! 

This month is a busy one. We had members join the Pasadena Pacers for the LA Marathon kickoff which is ongoing (and free), a kickboxing class, the pancake flip-off, a hike with a shoe demo, Craftober fest at the Rose Bowl, and more! Scroll down for more info!
Check out more updates on our Facebook page! Join us afterward for
Craft-ober fest at the Rose Bowl (details below)
The annual Pancake Flip-off is Saturday, October 20. We start around 8 am and go all morning until we run out of food! 

Want to run? Meet at Garfield Park to join the Pacers for the usual run @ 7 am, then come back to eat.

What is the Pancake Flip-off? Good, good question. It's breakfast, it's a cooking contest, and it's a fundraiser. But wait, there's more. You get to eat ALL. YOU. WANT.

As you eat, remember to vote for your favorite team by putting $1, $5, $10, or $20 bills into their Green Cans. Several local running/fitness clubs will join DHRC in bringing their best chefs to compete for your VOTE$.

Favorite place to run in LA: I used to run down by the beach in Santa Monica when I lived on the westside--my FAV!-- but now I live too far away to run there consistently

How did you first get introduced to DHRC? Funny/entertaining story about this: I actually met--and sat next to--Kim K. and Katy A. at a "Women in Tech" seminar back in February 2017 at the Apple store in Pasadena. We talked briefly about the seminar and about where we were from, etc, but they actually didn't get a chance to tell me about run club at that time. Then IRONICALLY one of the speakers on the panel (and somebody who later hired me to work at her company)---Dea---afterwards told me about run club... and I think I attended run club the next Tuesday that came up!  I remember after a couple meetings I noticed and recognized Kim and was like--"Wait!--I know you!!?" and then we amusingly talked about what a small world it is, and how cool that I still heard about run club and came, even though she didn't get an opportunity to tell me about it that one day!

What is your favorite thing about DHRC? - The whole sense of community, support, and family with this group! I was new to Pasadena and hardly knew anybody in the area, and in a short time I was adopted into the group and activities and really enjoyed the openness and sense of belonging I truly found with the club. 
I also love the fact that everybody is health-conscious on a whole, but also likes to have a good party time now and then, and also aren't over-the-top competitive or "judgy" if you are a slower runner. 
I am still constantly amazed and grateful to have SO many cool and wonderful people as my run club friends, and to have such an amazing group of people I consider a second family and community out here! Thank you!! :)

Favorite DHRC event: Brewery runs, scavenger hunts/runs, progressives.... oh, I love them all!

Interesting fact not many people know about you: I'm a HUGE traveler & have a very adventurous no-fear type of spirit (scuba diving, sky diving, bungee jumping, shark cage diving, etc.)!!  I've lived in Spain, Thailand, Finland, and South Africa, and I did an around-the-world trip in 2013 and visited 17 countries that year alone! 
I try to live my life to its very fullest & do as many things I can that make me think, “This is what it feels like to be ALIVE!”
