STAIRDOWN: April Fridays at Fort Greene Park


Risers! During the month of March we began our Hills 4.0 workout series with a 5-week residency on the Brooklyn side of the Manhattan Bridge. It was a great place to run hills, and work on earning some points towards the Burpee Challenge.

It rained a lot on Fridays…

This time around, we’re staying in Brooklyn but adding some stairs into the mix. We’re taking over Fort Greene Park!

Every Friday in April we’ll be meeting at the Prison Ship Martyrs’ Monument at the top of the steps at 6:30 AM. We’ll be running up and down those stairs so many times you’ll be feeling the burn all weekend (and maybe even into Monday!)

It’s easy to get to the park from pretty much anywhere. Take the B/Q/R to Dekalb Ave; 2/3/4/5 to Nevins St.; the G to Fulton St; or the C to Lafayette Ave. Plenty of transit options = #NoExcuses!!

Afterwards we’ll head to Junior’s for a hearty and delicious breakfast….and maybe even some cheesecake if your palate can handle that at 7 AM.


HAPPY HOUR TONIGHT

Also – tonight is our Happy Hour! We’re meeting at Taproom No. 307 at 7 PM. for some food and drink, and to announce the Burpee challenge caption and photo contest winners! You won’t want to miss it. Join our Facebook group and RSVP.

RISE UP!



Yeah Buddy!
