A few weeks ago I was running in Central Park. Running a race, in fact. I think it was a 10k. About a mile or so into the run as I was weaving in and out of slower runners, I noticed that I was running next to David. We both screamed and hugged. I quickly felt the pangs of running with David as I was very out of breath and could hardly talk to catch up with him. He told me that he'd joined a new running group and I quizzed him on it. How much? When do you meet? What do you do with them? etc. He told me that the fee for the entire year was only $20.00 and that they had running clinics a few times a week. (The running class we took together last summer was approximately $10 per class.)
I got home from the race and decided to look up the group. I briefly grazed the website and submitted my $20.00 and was quickly added to facebook groups and email lists. With being sick last week and then going to the beach I haven't had much time to look at the information that I've been getting. Last week I was invited to a Pride run. June is Pride month; a fact I know well after living in the Castro in San Francisco for 3 years. I didn't think anything of it.
Last Friday I got an email newsletter and as I was looking at it, I realized that it had a very tiny rainbow stripe on the header of the email. And then I saw it.
The XXX Gram is published weekly by XX New York, Inc., a non-profit running and sports organization for lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgendered people, and their supportersAwesome.
Anyone know where I can buy some rainbow shorts to wear to my first meetup?
