One of my first fun groups on the Internet was the Dead Runners Society. It’s a worldwide virtual running club discovered by LotStreetWiz. Through it we’ve made friends and acquaintances, learned more about other countries, met contacts on our travels, and even learned more about running and physical fitnesss training.
The DRS has evolved from a simple running club to a multi-interest group with regional subgroups such ad SOBER, the Southern Ontario & Buffalo Expired Runners, training specialities such as Tri-deads for triathlon training, and just plain hanging out for fun. Into the latter category falls the World Conference.
Here are a few notes about the 2008 DRS World Conference, which was held in Tacoma last June.
