NBB members have been donating clothing and shoes to the Green Bag Program throughout the year, and now it’s time to bundle/organize these donations. This notice is a bit late, but if you have some free time this weekend Duffy would greatly appreciate your help. He’ll be at Golden State Storage on Saturday and Sunday, along with other NBB members.

Yeah we run this mountain too.

Big thanks to Blingmaster Sandy for hooking us up with our hardware and hosting today's run. We'll be sharing our USATF XC Grand Prix 3rd place award with the club all month. Who wants to wear it next?

It's been a tradition for over 30 years to run the very hilly and very scenic Rocky Peak Park.

This year our LA Valley Runner friends and Conejo Valley Runner joined us for a morning run. Jon shared an awesome apple cake and we all sang happy birthday to Polo and had a cheesecake to celebrate.  Great start to thanksgiving day.

Here are the pictures from today's run

Congratulations to all that participated in today's Griffith Park Half Marathon. Great event put on by @keira.henninger. Hope you all liked that original 60's Batman theme song we played while you ran inside the Bronson Cave. @barryfreeman33 , sorry we missed a photo op of you while we were setting up our jam. And Akiko you looked awesome out there, very impressive. We need you in our XC team next year!

To all the friends we made this year and all the long time NBB members who followed our lead. Thank you for participating and supporting us. Today we let everybody know NBB is not only a social run club but sometimes when we run together as a team we mean business. It doesn’t take 1 or 2 fast runners; today it took all of 19 NBB runners to earn  3rd place in all of southern California. 
This is how we did in today’s regional USATF XC race.
  • Polo was top 5 in the Masters race
  • Maggie was 2nd place in the Grand Prix
  • Ismael was 3rd in the the Grand Prix
  • Helga 1st in age division
  • And  everybody scored points that contributed to the 3rd place team finish for the XC season

On Sunday we scoped out the USATF XC Grand Prix Championship course. A 2K shady mostly dirt trail loop inside the La Crescenta Valley Park. But we weren't alone, our competition, the ARC Elite Racing Project, was also running the course. We ended up having nice picnic with them after the run. Here's a pic of our two clubs before the big race.
