Welcoming runners of all abilities.

General Meeting Minutes

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Opening Remarks

Roadrunner safety

Jeff talked about the former U. of Delaware cross-country member fatally struck by a car while running.

(Complete details about the incident are not available) "Share the road" should mean, "share the

responsibility" for runners keeping themselves safe. While we all look good when wearing black, maybe we

should consider bright colors to help drivers (often distracted) see us from far away (Disclaimer: Jeff puts his

headlights on whenever the conditions are less than bright to help others see him).

Public Service Announcement

There is a hazardous waste collection at Temple Ambler on Saturday, 5/18. ( Information ).

Road Runners Club of America meeting

Jeff will represent AARC at RRCA in New Orleans, 3/28-31/19. He will write a summary after the trip.
