Run Ottawa 6@6 Meetup with Author Mark Sutcliffe

Run Ottawa 6@6 Meetup with Author Mark Sutcliffe

Last night I went for my first Meetup, ever. With people.

I was recently accepted by Run Ottawa (@runottawa) to a team of online ambassadors (#TeamAwesome) for the 2017 Ottawa Race Weekend. And given I've run in a lot of Run Ottawa races this year I signed up and on Wednesday and went to meet the regular group for their weekly Wednesday 6@6 meetup and run.

It happens that I picked a great night to start attending because while it was a regular run it was also lead by author Mark Sutcliffe (@_MarkSutcliffe) who after we were done, spoke to the group and read from his book Long Road to Boston. My first marathon is still more than a year off but I very much enjoyed hearing his perspective and experiences and was impressed enough to buy the book.

It is nice to start meeting other runners and people from Instagram in person, I hope to be back out next week. Thanks to @struttinmystuff for the photos and organizing the event. As my first time out with a group it could not have been better.
