If you're looking for a way to spend your Sunday afternoon supporting a great organization and getting healthy, Boys and Girls Club has their Resolution Run.
FYI Trotters, in case any of you were planning on attending the weekly Fun Run at Riverside Runners. If you haven't had a chance to run with them yet, we highly encourage it, it's a great night out with other runners and around the community. All abilities welcome. Check out their facebook page for details on future runs.
Stay warm trotters.
In the interest of safety, we'll be cancelling our weekly fun run usually held on Tuesday. The sidewalks from the store will be icy at best. Most are not clear...ed. Please plan on joining us next week. Be safe out there. Seek out a safe course and perhaps change the time of day you run. Daylight is your friend in these conditions. Dress to be seen (leave the white running jacket or shirt at home.).
Happy Monday Trotters and new year.
This year take advantage of the many 5Ks in Lynchburg, not just ours, because it's fun and good for your brain!
Have a great week
