President’s Corner – Feb 2013

President’s Corner:  “Consider Yourself One of Us!”

Welcome to the 30th Anniversary year of the Essex Running Club.  We have a wide range of activities and events planned this year for our wonderful members.  Please take a look at our website and newsletter for up to date announcements and stories.  We are a club who welcomes everyone from walkers and joggers to experienced and competitive racers!  Everyone from our novice joggers to our state recognized speed demons are “at home” with each other!  In the words an old Broadway show, “Consider yourself at home, consider yourself, one of the family!!!”.

In my case, I became a member 17 years ago (1996).  My successful, competitive high school career at Columbia High School (Class of ’76) was a distant memory and wanted to get a much older body into shape.  My “second running career” in my 40’s and 50’s was never as successful competitively as it was in my youth.  However, I sincerely believe the friendships gained from the club have enriched my life. I am always inspired by the many different stories of our club members.  Next month,   “President’s Corner” will begin a series of articles focusing on the many “untold” stories our many different members.   It will be a nice way for us to reflect in this anniversary year.

For right now, stay tuned to the many activities we have planned.  Come to our general meetings, club socials, weekly runs, and special activities.  Be sure to seek out members as mentors and ask all for advice about your training.  Give our Board Members ideas on activities.  Most of all, have FUN!

“Consider Yourself One of Us!”  (From the Broadway Show, “Oliver”.)
