With the leaves changing to reds and yellows, it is a gentle reminder that life has seasons. In this season and in this most challenging year, the Boston Bulldogs have remained connected and strong. Weekly runs have resumed in four locations with COVID-19 health guidelines in place, and we continue our virtual connections to club members through monthly #TogetherWeDo meetings, twice weekly Meditations, and with the new Coach's Corner.We have enjoyed staying connected virtually and will likely continue to do so even when we can return to live events and face-to-face.
There are good things on the horizon as we close out 2020 and head into the new year. We have been busy during this time developing a strategic plan with our Board of Directors and creating contingency plans for our programs in 2021. We're planning for a 2021 Run for Recovery and a 2021 Boston Marathon team (virtually for now), hope to resume our Giving Back Program, and to reengage Junior Bulldogs (all aligned with our commitment to wellness and public health guidelines.) This year we will also be kicking off our 5 year celebration by participating in #GivingTuesday. As we approach the holiday season we are ever thankful for the collaborative spirit and support we have enjoyed since the Club's first walk/run at the Rez in October 2015. We'll keep you posted via social media and our website.
For me as the Club's Executive Director, it's been a busy and exciting first several weeks in my new role and I can see that the Boston Bulldogs are so much more than a running club – the Bulldogs community is represented by so many kind-hearted warriors supporting each other fiercely in so many ways.
Wishing you peace and good health in this season. Stay safe and well,
