Looking for Roommates in Lexington

As many of you already know, Paul Rupprecht and I have moved into a new house in Lexington, MA (you can see pictures below). We are pumped to have such a nice house in such a nice area and are looking forward to having many of you come visit!

Paul and I are all moved in and the place is looking great! ...but now we need roommates. Please pass the word along to your friends that might be interested and keep us in mind if you have any interest yourself.

The house has 4 large bedrooms and a finished basement, so there is plenty of room to have 4-5 people living here. Rent is $2250 a month, so $562 for 4, $450 for 5. There are 4 bathrooms with 3 showers, big living areas and so many rooms! I would say the biggest selling point is the yard - 2 acres of space and next to no neighbors. We have a big barn and a small shed in addition to the garage that is attached to the house. We've already had some cookouts in the backyard and have had the fire pit going just about every weekend. There is a nice washer and dryer included and we pay electric and oil bills, but with 4 people that split becomes very manageable.

We would love to here from anyone that might be interested in living with us. We are looking to get someone in here as soon as we can, but can be flexible around different situations. We may be able to accommodate short term as well as long term, so if someone is just interested in the summer, let us know! If you know Paul and/or myself, you know that we are both pretty easy going and get along with just about anybody. However, with such a nice place, we want to keep it nice and make it even better by taking care of the yard and keeping the house clean. We would love to get people that have a similar lifestyle to our own and take pride in taking care of this great property.

As for location, we are located on Woburn St at Marshall Rd, 1.5 miles away from Lexington Center. It takes about 5 mins to get to I-95 going north (Rt. 3) or south (Mass Ave). Rt. 2 is a couple miles away and it generally takes about 15-20 minutes to get into Cambridge/Downtown. For runners, we are about 8 min from Battle Road, a few minutes from Great Meadow, Willard Woods, and about 15 min from Lincoln Woods.

Please contact me directly if you have any questions regarding this or if you just want to come over and visit.

Thanks for your interest!

Twilight Meet #2 - Post Race Gathering!

In an effort to fill the void of Andrea's B-Day celebration last week, Jeff and Paul will be opening their house and yard on Saturday night for post race festivities. All team members and friends are welcome! There will be burgers and a few side dishes for anyone that comes hungry. As for beverages, we will be limited. Please feel free to pick up a case of your favorite selection! Marshmallow roasting is a strong possibility so either bring a roasting skewer or be prepared to whittle your own. No chickens yet, so don't get your hopes up (maybe by meet #4).

Last event is scheduled for 7:45 PM, so once the meet is completed and everything has been cleaned up, we'll caravan over to Lexington and all are welcome to tag along. The address is 509 Woburn St, Lexington, MA and it is about 6 Miles from the track.

Contact Jeff or Paul with any questions and we hope to see you Saturday!

NBB featured in 2009 RTB video recap

Summer's arriving. And instead of thinking about beaches, vacations and relaxing by the pool, the New Balance Boston crew are looking ahead to the 2010 Reach the Beach Relay in September. It's never too early to think about the roster and taking down Hello Kitty, after we were not able to defend our title from 2008.

Pixel Wire Media put together 6 videos that recap the 2009 Reach the Beach Relay. New Balance Boston is featured in some of the videos.

Check them out at:

You can provide comments to the media guy, Jack, on youtube. He did a great job.
