    Hey everyone!

    I hope everyone is having an awesome holiday with their friends and family. I know it's a busy time of year, but if we want to be ready for our upcoming races, we need to stay on top of the training. Our run this weekend will be one of the longest runs of the season. 

    Black Flag Running Club - Spring Season will open this week. 

    Tell your friends! It is the perfect excuse to stick to their New Year’s Resolutions!  Our next training season  will post this week. It will be in this Fridays post.
