Weekly Wag

Welcome to this week’s edition of our weekly news and events roundup of all things Whippet-related.

Since it gets dark earlier this time of year, make sure to be careful if running alone (and try to run with someone). There was a recent incident in the East River Park:  http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/manhattan/jogger-dragged-raped-robbed-east-river-park-cops-article-1.2447604 

The Dashing Whippets Running Team thanks our 2015 Team Sponsors for their generous support of the club: RunnerClinicNYC, Generation UCan, Revolution in Motion, and Fitletic, Inc.
