    I hope everyone is excited because this Saturday's run will be a brand new run that we have never done before. I am super excited about it because it includes 4 bridges and the option to visit a forgotten cemetery. I have a feeling it is going going to be a favorite but know in advance it's going to be challenging ......... in a good way.

     As Always

    We'll usually arrive 15-20 minutes before each group run to make ourselves available for questions, tips, whatever.  We also plan to stay afterward for as long as it takes to do the same.  This means I'll be at Tuesday runs around 5:45 PM and the Saturday runs at 7:00 AM.

    Please let us know if you have questions.
