Hi runners! I know, I know, it's been a while. So sorry! (on that note, if anyone has a free twenty minutes per week in their schedules, I do need to pass this responsibility on to another organized writing type for the next year!)
1) RACE REPORTS
***from Tom Griffin
Ran the Chief Ladiga Half-marathon today. The value of running and of holding events like this was demonstrated nicely today. After the race, Tommilynn Meyer had the most radiant glow of satisfaction and pleasure on her face after she completed the race. Great race Tommilynn!
(NOTE: I've heard from several of you in person and a few who even made the newspaper on how much fun you had at the Ladiga Half. Great job to all of you!!!)
2) UPCOMING EVENTS

This is a last minute plea...anyone available to head up the Half Naked Marathon at Ft. McClellan on January 21st? It's a low-key event, would be great for a first-time race director. Email IMMEDIATELY because the race registrations are already coming in!
Have a great week!
