The Beginning of the End of LRC

With all this lonely social distancing running, I’ve been thinking a lot about LRC’s end game. What, did you think something this much fun could go on forever?! That’s cute. No. It was always my intention to disband after 6.66 years of existence – Wednesday, August 19th, 2020. Unfortunately, that may be the next time we get to meet as a group again.

The next chapter will be in your hands. The framework for success is here. I’ve decided to sell the LRC and my services to The Runner’s Edge. While I spend the summer restructuring LRC to fit their needs, I encourage you to create your very own club in your own town!

Trust me, it’s easy. There’s literally no time commitment to this thing. You can form a network of Lake County clubs (they ALL want to work together) to compliment one another, offering group runs and activities on varying days of the week.

Where to start? You’ve got a few more months of quarantine to talk amongst yourselves; someone can revive M.A.R.S. – Mundelein Area Run Syndicate, that we launched in 2018.

MARS artThen, there are plenty of other options:

Don’t want to be confined to one town or one sport? Think big:

You get the idea.

I know this is a hard pill to swallow under quarantine but think of the silver lining: your new run club will always have a band, Cats Are Assholes, that will play for free, even if it is over Zoom conferencing for the foreseeable future.

Thank you all for your participation over the years. Take care, friends!
