Hi Runners! We had 5 for the run on Monday night. The neighborhood is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! There were lights everywhere, and the cold weather made it feel just as festive! I had a bit of a wardrobe malfunction during the run but that’s all I’ll say about that! What happens at run, stays at run. That’s why you’d better show up. It was cloudy, wet, and chilly Wednesday night. Jack surprised us, or maybe we surprised Jack. He was on his usual walk when he saw Mrs. Hunton out running and realized that we met near his walking route so he joined us. It was good to catch up. It was quite cold on Saturday morning. The subject of aging came up, and let’s just say that given those in attendance, no one took off on their run feeling young and chipper! Mrs. Hunton and I went to Indy for Santa Hustle 5K on Sunday morning. It’s always a fun festive event. 

Training: Monday at Clearwick Park at 5:00PM. Wednesday at childcare center on Amos Road at 5:00PM. Saturday at parking garage entrance on W. Washington Street at 7:30AM. 

Racing: Santa Dash 5K is in Columbus on Saturday morning. 

Christmas fun: Monday December 13 at Clearwick Park after the run. Cookie Exchange: Bring 9 baggies of 4 cookies each (3 doz cookies total) to exchange. Cookies can be homemade or purchased. Bring a wrapped Christmas cookie container/jar/platter for gift exchange ($10 or less). Bring a drink if you’d like. I’ll have a snack and a game with prizes. Let me know if you’ll be there. If you want to skip the run, just show up at 5:30!

Happy Running!

Marsha

Mike’s Running Tip: When your running buddy asks you for a light, it’s to light the path not a cigarette!
