Welcome to the Run With CSE blog site! We are incredibly excited to launch this new, interactive format and include it in our growing social media offerings. We believe it will enhance your running experience whenever you choose to run a Corrigan Sports race. First up, of course, is the Baltimore Running Festival, so between now and Oct. 12, we’ll be posting weekly updates to get you ready to run Baltimore.
What will you find here? A wide variety of topics. You’ll get course tips–for Baltimore, this might just contain some info on hills–rumor has it we have a few of those on the course. You’ll get human interest stories: this year’s festival includes a relay team made up of breast cancer survivors, for instance. We’ll also help you navigate the streets of Baltimore. If you’re coming into town for the weekend, we’ll offer up a ready-made list of restaurants, running shoe stores, and recommendations for a shake-out run so that you can take on the city like a local.
No matter what, when you turn to this site you’re ensured you’ll get quality information a race participant can use. I’m Amanda Loudin, the writer behind the site, and I want you to know you’re in good hands. I’ve been running for 15 years and participating in CSE events annually since the first Baltimore Running Festival back in 2001. I’m a local who loves both running and the local scene. Whether you are a Baltimore Running Festival “streaker,” who has run every edition of the event, or a brand-new runner, I look forward to helping make this event a fun, welcoming, and memorable event for you!
And make no doubt about it–this is an interactive site. Please comment at the end of posts with your thoughts, questions, and suggestions. You can also contact us directly by using the form under the contact tab if you need to reach us directly. Whatever the case, we want to hear from you. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter as well to get the full CSE social media experience.
Let’s get this thing rolling–if you are a past participant of the Baltimore Running Festival, what’s your favorite memory of the event? If you’re new to the event, what are you most looking forward to experiencing or what questions can we answer?
