We hope you’ve been enjoying the great Fall running weather! As the temperatures dip and the days get shorter, we are so fortunate to have such an inspiring group of women runners in our club supporting each other. Longtime member Margaret Randle captures that spirit in her video about our club and its history - a “must-watch” if you haven’t seen it yet.
Our Wednesday workouts continue to be well attended with a number of new members bringing energy and excitement to our group. For both our newer members and those who’ve been members for many years, we encourage you to share feedback on our club. Have a running goal? A specific interest? A new idea? Let us know!
As we move into the Winter months, I know we’re all hoping for mild weather and a lot less snow this year. We look forward to seeing you at our weekly workouts, on training runs, therapy runs and joyful runs.
"The obsession with running is really an obsession with the potential for more and more life."
