The Big Daddy Running
Club Wants You
current and potential Walkers, Joggers, and Runners: Thanks to the efforts
of Big Daddy himself, Darrell Fogan of the unit block of
Randolph Place, The Big Daddy Running Club is now in its 13th
year in Bloomingdale and going strong. We are a diverse-in-every-way
group of friends and neighbors who meet regularly to get some exercise before
most of the city even wakes up.
and Natalie Hopkinson started this group on January 1, 2002 to improve fitness
for the neighborhood. Since then, we meet every Tuesday and Thursday at 6:05ish
and Sunday at 7:05ish at the northeast corner of Rhode Island Ave and 2nd St NW
and take off from there.
you want to walk, run or jog, or some combination, there`s probably somebody
else there who shares your workout ideal. Usually we walk together for a
block or so, then the walkers take the short loop, joggers the middle loop, and
runners the long route. Everybody starts and finishes at the same place at
roughly the same time, usually a bit before 7:00 a.m. during the week. We have a
variety of routes for each of the days we run and we have routes geared to each
person's pace. Strollers and dogs on a leash welcome, too!
love to see you.
