WPR Sportscast for Wednesday March 25
A few words about this week's run I'm so excited to be ushering in another big running season. It feels like the races start earlier every year or perhaps just that this winter has lasted forever, but either way it's great to have more runners joining us an...

WPR Sportscast for Wednesday March 11
A few words about this week's run This is it. It's here. It's SHORTS weather! Though the last few weeks have been pretty much the worst, it's pretty fortuitous that we've got the first 50+ degree Wednesday run on the first daylit WPR (thanks to the clock ch...

WPR Sportscast for Wednesday February 18th
A few words about this week's run The weather is calling for some snow during our run this week! Fingers crossed that the weather report holds true. Obviously, we'll be running regardless of the weather and we hope you can make it, too. Our destination this...

WPR Sportscast for Wednesday February 4
A few words about this week's run Once in a while, WPRs will change out of their running clothes, maybe bathe, and rendezvous out in public as civilians. It's a wonderful sight, all these folks who met and bonded through running and beers, hanging out outsi...

WPR Sportscast for Wednesday January 14th
A few words about this week's run With temperatures dropping, I've felt this need over the last month to put out positive messages about how it's not that bad and how we're all going to have a great time. That's because I was foolish enough to actually thin...

WPR 2014 New Year's Eve Run
A few words about this week's run The holidays rage on! This week is New Year's Eve edition of West Philly Runners. It should be obvious that we are indeed running on Wednesday night, because we would never miss out on an opportunity to run on NYE. Think of...

WPR Sportscast for Wednesday March 18
A few words about this week's run March weather is a mixed bag, but we're all on a roll now. The temperatures may fluctuate, but we've got longer days on our side, races on our calendars, and a group of runners looking forward to seeing our faces. We're tak...

March (or run) over for the last nighttime run of the winter
A few words about this week's run I'll admit, the "end of winter" (or at least the coming daylight savings time change) really snuck up on me this year. It could be the record-setting frigid February weather, but I'd like to believe that we've just been hav...

A few words about this week's run I am inviting all of you to come to a housewarming of sorts at our home after this week's run. We are celebrating finally getting the heat working in the whole house, so we don't even need your stinkin' housewarming heat, b...

WPR Sportscast for Wednesday January 21
A few words about this week's run Running literally takes us to some interesting places. This weekend's photo shoot in Woodland Cemetery was no exception. One day, when we can run in daylight again, we'll run through there as a group. Until then, I highly r...

WPR Sportscast - Kicking off 2015 Run
A few words about this week's run Remember when you made that resolution to run more in the near year? Well this Wednesday is your chance to kick off the new year on the right foot. Not only will you be sticking to that resolution, but with temperatures in ...

WPR Sportscast for Christmas Eve - December 24
A few words about this week's run Happy Holidays to you all. I have no doubt that many of you either are or will be out of town during this Wednesday's run. But if you happen to be around and you want to go for a run and hang out with some runners, join us ...
