Ok, so I'm thinking about setting up a meetup EZ group run for Saturday before the marathon.<br><br>
Anyone in? morning / afternoon? If we do early-mid afternoon, then there is plenty of time for everyone to get back and get cleaned up for dinner. You certainly don't want people to see you all sweaty-like!<br><br>
Locals - I'm thinking meet at the Art Museum, out and back on the drive? Thoughts?<br><br>
So maybe start at 3:00 at the Art Muesum. It's out and back so you can pick your own distance.

Someone posted about running with an elite (and some other people) that Saturday and I signed up for that. I think it meets at the muesem, but whatever, I could certainly run later if any slower people decide to join in. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

I'd be interested as long as I don't have to drive anywhere. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

I feel...the need...for, uh, slowness. I'm taking it easy myself, so if we get a slowpoke contingent going, I'm up for it.

If we meet at the Art Museum, this is about 1 mile from City Hall (and hence most downtown hotels). It is a short cab ride if you don't want to walk / run there. You wouldn't want to drive because the parking there is worse than where ever you came from!<br><br>
There is also a cool coffee shop at 23rd & Fairmount (maybe 3-4 blocks) from there.

I was kinda thinking of a little run in Delaware Saturday morning, maybe 2-3 really slow miles. Ill be running in NJ and NY on Thursday, and obviously in PA on Sunday so I thought why not, Im this close to Delaware why not get 4 states in on the same trip. Maybe <b>Theia</b> could recommend some places for me to run. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

I'm IN as well. Just tell me where to be and when. Better yet, lead me there at the designated time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

There is a nice greenway trail if you look at the top part of this map near Thomson's Bridge. It's not that far off 95 and really pretty. Maybe a 4 mile drive down Naamans Road.<br><a href="http://www.destateparks.com/bcsp/Brandywine%20Creek%20State%20Park%20map.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.destateparks.com/bcsp/Bra...Park%20map.pdf</a>

That's where I do pretty much all my long runs. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><b>Frankie,</b> that's the trail I mentioned to you... soft on the feet and legs and very flat (where I will take you anyway... there are some miserable hills in other sections).
