Brasilia Community Run - Powered by Odwalla and Runkeeper

Guest Author


Paulo Jeronimo,
a local Java developer and an enthusiastic runner, organized a href="http://blog.eucorro.net/2011/07/duke-run.html">community run
in Brasilia. He was also joined by href="http://jbossbrasil.org/site/members/claudiomiranda/">Claudio
Miranda and together we ran around some of the most secured area in
Brasilia covering href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pal%C3%A1cio_da_Alvorada">Palácio
da Alvorada (Presidential Palace), href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pal%C3%A1cio_do_Planalto">Palácio
do Planalto (President's work place), href="http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pal%C3%A1cio_do_Jaburu">Palácio do
Jaburu (Vice Presidential Palace), and href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Congress_of_Brazil">Congress
Building.



Here is the complete course:








I gave a few Odwalla bars to both of them and looking forward to their
feedback on the different flavors. Do you know you can buy them online
at odwallashop.com ?



Check out some pictures from the course:

    Arun,

    Very cool idea! We're organizing a similar concept on a global scale this Saturday, July 9th through Meetup.com.

    Hope you can join a group in your community, or lead the effort to form a new group!

    Cheers,

    Hi Sarah,

    As much as I'd love to attend the Sao Paulo meetup, 10am is too late for me. I'm speaking at a conference around the same time :(

    But am getting very hooked with runkeeper and have several suggestions on how to improve it over all, will talk to you off-line about it.
