The pandemic dumped a tremendous amount of additional stress on the food and beverage industry, but this running group, established in early 2019, provided much relief to its members, many of whom found themselves suddenly furloughed. Comedor Run Club strategically makes space for health and healing in their beloved but demanding industry, one rife with addiction and burnout. Focused on offering an alternative lifestyle for hospitality workers, the group is open to all paces. They meet several times a week for a casual 5K run, and follow the workout with community-building camaraderie, plus treats like tacos and biscuits. Connection and decompression are just part of their great work to “shift post-shift culture."
