Cara’s Run (5.3 miles)

Thanks for the treats DONNA!!!  Donna and her husband just got back from an Alaskan cruise.  Donna brought some ‘Gold Nugget’ candy to our run on Tuesday evening. That was so sweet of you, Donna!

Greetings from RICH:  Most of you know that Rich has been having problems with his knees.  He emailed to say that it doesn’t look as though he’ll be able to do much running anymore. Even his doctor is pessimistic.  He just received his 3rd lubricant injection, but it is still quite painful to run even a short distance.  He said that the highlight of his week was coming out to run with his running buddies.  He said to say ‘Hi’ to everybody and hopes to come out sometime for a walk/run with us. We’ll miss you Rich!!!
