Do you need to squeeze running into an already tight schedule in order to stay sane?
Do you find yourself stumbling to the train at dawn on Saturdays & Sundays when others are stumbling home because you need to get to a race in Central Park and have to compensate for the weekend's inevitable MTA service changes?
Would get more turned on by a special discount at Jack Rabbit than a sale at Victoria's Secret?
Are you overflowing with questions and opinions about gear, sport nutrition, and the best ways to improve your times?
Then it's time we got together! Let's celebrate the sport we love in the city we love to do it in. What more appropriate day than on Sunday March 20, after the NYC Half Marathon. What's that, you're not running the half this year? That doesn't mean you can't party like you did!
Two bands of New York area runners will be on hand to play your favorite tunes!
Lady Southpaw, formerly a solo act, is making its debut as a full on rock band! We will be playing original running music from the "Songs for Running," EP (available on iTunes and Amazon) as well as some running appropriate covers, punked up to high speeds. The setlist is wide ranging: from Blondie, and the Boss, to Keane and Florence & the Machine. John of Hella Sound Premium Running Music will even be on hand to play bass.
The Fades have wowed crowds throughout New York City and beyond with our high-energy sets and fun-loving stage act. Dedicated to recreating those ‘80s tunes that defined the decade, we get people moving, singing along and always screaming for more. Why the ‘80s? Because boys don’t cry and girls just want to have fun. In other words, we love rock-n-roll and didn’t stop believing. We love performing and we think it shows. So if you‘re working for the weekend and want to rock this town, The Fades may be the band for you. Rad!

Don't be afraid to bring your friends and significant others who don't run; they can start a little support group for those living with runners. Maybe they'll even be inspired when they see that most runners are actually crazy in a good way.
