    Philadelphia Distance Run - RACE WEEKEND!!!!!

    by Lionel Brahim Brodie III


    Welcome to Race Weekend friends! We have your whole weekend planned (you’re welcome!) so just RSVP and show up: Friday. Saturday. Sunday.


    As you swing by packet pickup (Philadelphia Runner (PR) Center City, 1711 Walnut Street) and start to prepare for summer’s last hurrah, here’s a cheat sheet to make sure you’re well equipped:




    Register for all the Friday and Saturday events. And obviously the race on Sunday! The party doesn’t start until YOU arrive.


    Don’t know what to wear this weekend? You can always rep Philadelphia Runner. Tons of styles to choose from!




    Looking for something race specific? The Brooks X Philadelphia Distance Run collection is LAVA! Shop online and pick up at our Center City location. Or…..just stop in!


    Purchase some NUUN tablets. Summer is holding on strong, and we’ll want to stay hydrated all weekend.


    Nutrition will also be essential. Make sure you stock up for that last easy run, your shakeout (with us on Saturday morning, right?), and of course…..race day!




    Don’t forget v important accessories such as socks, hats, and sunglasses. Summer, remember?


    Speaking again of Summer…..Body Glide. Trust me. And…..you’re welcome.




    Need a new watch? We have those too. I'm a Garmin guy myself.....


    If you are like me and want new footwear for every big race…..Brooks is the play this weekend. I bought a pair yesterday, and we have them at all of our locations: Center City, University City, Manayunk, and Glen Mills!


    Check out this previous blog post for other things to do in the city (especially if you’re visiting): where to get the picture opportunity, who makes the best cheesesteak, and why we still need to discuss the best soft pretzels and water (pronounced ‘wooder’) ice in Philadelphia.




    Yards Beer. For those who celebrate…..


    Have a good time. Walking, jogging, running, and/or racing should be fun.




    See you out there!
