Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows that it must run faster than the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows that it must outrun the slowest gazelle, or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle; when the sun comes up, you had better be moving.
The Breakfast Club meets on the old Hutsell Track on the corner of Biggio Drive and Samford Avenue on Wednesday mornings. We gather near dawn at first safe light to run, jog, walk, or crawl. This group is not about speed. It is simply about moving our bodies through space at whatever pace feels right. Some stay on the track. Others venture on to campus, the intramural field, or the Snake Hill trails. It is intentionally informal and only loosely organized. Bring a friend or meet one. Move alone or with someone else. No rules, just using our bodies the way they were intended.
