Runners, meet your new best friend and running companion: Dixie Cup.

Dixie, born in 1907 to a prominent Boston attorney, complimented her father’s development of an ice-cooled water dispenser when she was just a young cup. For years, Dixie enjoyed the limelight as the solution to citizens’ concerns about germs being spread by people sharing glasses or dippers at public water supplies.

Dixie Cup is a multifaceted individual struggling with tree huggers’ disdain for her (all-the-while sympathizing with their agenda) yet trying to help those who have yet to amass a collection of reusable handheld bottles or fuel belts.  She recently found an arch nemesis in Nathan Bottle who threatens her existence daily. Dixie Cup laments the fact that she has generally one use, maybe two or three, but is happy to be there for runners in their moment of need.

The LRC has recently employed Dixie Cup to assist in our runners’ hydration needs on our long runs in addition to our summer speed workouts at the Libertyville High School track. LRC President, Chairman of the Board, Executive Director, Managing Director, Audit Executive, Business Development Director, Compliance Director, Creative Director, Director of Communications, Diversity Director, Financial Director (the only position he’s actually qualified for), Human Resources Director, Information Technology Director, Legal Affairs Director, Most Senior Corporate Officer, and CEO, Mike Brunette states, “we believe in paying a good wage and are thankful we can provide that to Dixie in this economic environment.”

Dixie first discovered the LRC via MySpace and started coming to our LHS track workouts. As Dixie stated, “the workouts were great but these folks had chicken wings and watermelon…that is something I fully support.”

Dixie Cup, we vow to pick you up and try our damnedest to recycle you after you support us on our runs, you poly-coated wonder you.
