THIS is the Joy of Running

Reposting from The Flying Irish Facebook page:

On Monday Night at 6:30, all running stores around the nation will be holding a run in honor of the victims from the Boston Marathon. In conjunction with The Spokane Distance Project, The Flying Irish, and The Bloomsday Road Runners Club a 2.62mile run will be hosted beginning at the "Joy of Running" Statues in Riverfont Park. This is a run to show solidarity for runners and be a visual image that will show the strength and community of runners, and all are welcome. In addition, later next week Runners for Boston shirts will be available for $20 with 100% of the money going to the Onefundboston.org. Thank you all for making us so proud of our community of runners, your compassion in the wake of this tragedy has been amazing, we look forward to seeing you Monday night at 6:30. Also, we will be extending our shoe drive until then so if you haven't dropped off your shoes yet this is your last chance!
