Mug Run – Another Round!!

So maybe a few weeks ago you saw my post for the first Mug Run and you thought to yourself, “hey, that looks fun, I should go do that!”. But then perhaps you were a little worried that you would not know anyone or that you would not be able to keep up and before you knew it, you talked yourself out of it and stayed home watching reruns of The Real Housewives of OC in your jammies while chowing down on nachos . Well, guess what? You get another chance to overcome those silly “I want to, but I am too scared/anxious to” thoughts! What is the story with those kind of thoughts anyway? Hmm, fodder for another post… Anyway, I am pleased to announce that the first Mug Run was so fun that Beth is organizing a second! Mug Run – Another Round is planned for next Thursday night, July 26th, at 7pm. Same deal as last time – meet at The Ugly Mug Bar in Cape May at 6:30pm to check-in, sign a release waiver and get to know your fellow Muggers.

The 4 mile course will then stop at 4 more bars. At each bar you can choose to have a beer, or not, and you will get a poker card. There will be a bicycle chaperone to help in the event anyone needs it, but mainly to ride ahead to the bars and place our orders so that your drink is ready when you arrive 🙂 The run finishes up back at The Ugly Mug and the person with the best poker “hand” wins. We also encourage you to make your own tee-shirt – just put “Mug Run – Another Round” on it somewhere, but otherwise get creative!

The course

No race clock, no age group awards (so don’t get your hopes up for a hokey trophy!) and no registration fee (the only money you would need is to cover any beer or other drinks you may want to imbibe)! What’s not to love?!

So if you regretted not coming out last time, here’s another shot. If this is the first you are hearing about it,  join us. I promise, we are not scary, the run is not fast paced and the beer is cold! Group runs are one of the best parts of running and now it is time to see for yourself!

Friendly faces await you!

Mug Run!

I will be in Brazil on vacation next week (and posting about running south of the equator, so be sure to check in!) but that does not mean the social runs in Cape May grind to a halt! I recently “met” (through email) a woman named Beth (hi Beth!) who is organizing a super fun sounding event Thursday night, July 5th at 6pm. Combine running, beer and poker and you get The Mug Run! Here’s the scoop:

Everyone meets at The Ugly Mug (26 Washington Street, Cape May, NJ) between 5:15pm and 5:30pm. There you will meet Beth, sign a liability release and get to know your fellow Muggers. At 6pm, the group (with a bicycle chaperone) will leave the Mug and start a 4 mile course, stopping at the C-View Inn, Sea Salt, Carney’s and the Rusty Nail along the way and finishing up back at the Ugly Mug. At each stop, you can choose to have a beer (or not) and will be given a card for your poker hand. At the end of the run, the winning hand gets a prize! Here is the course:

This event costs nothing save for whatever beer/drinks you choose to imbibe and it gives you a chance to meet more runners around the area. You can also make a shirt to really get in the spirit – make sure it says “Mug Run” somewhere on it but otherwise let your imagination run wild!

T o RSVP or for more information, please email Beth: beth1446 at gmail dot com or leave a comment below!

I wish cloning was a little further along so I could be there too! Happy running, drinking and pokering!
