Tuesday Run (Nov. 18)

We’ll meet in the parking lot near Men’s Wearhouse (985 E. Birch) at 6:00 p.m.  It is located in the Target/24 Hour Fitness Shopping Center.  You can shorten this run by omitting the portion of the route that goes around the post office.  Please DON’T take a shortcut through the park…that wouldn’t be safe!

Judi’s Run (5 miles)

Temecula Wine Country Half Marathon:  A group of us ran this race on Saturday.  The weather was perfect and although the course was hilly at the beginning and again at the end…the miles seemed to pass quickly since there were beautiful vineyard covered hillsides to look at.  We enjoyed listening to music and sampling wines from some of the local wineries after the race.  While sitting and relaxing at the post-race festival, we heard the announcer call Nina’s name.  Nina had no idea why her name was called and she ran onstage.  It so happens that all of the runners who registered for this race were entered into a contest to win an ELLIPTIGO…and Nina won!!!  What makes this ELLIPTIGO extra special is the fact that it is signed by Olympic Silver Medalist and 2014 Boston Marathon winner Meb Keflezighi!  It also happened to be Nina’s birthday weekend…so what a terrific birthday gift she received.  You can take a look at Nina’s new ELLIPTIGO, as well as other pics of the race:


Su’s Big Sur Half Marathon on Monterey Bay:  Su and her sister, Alice ran this race on Sunday.  Although, the race is called the Big Sur Half Marathon, it is not held in Big Sur.  It is a very scenic course that winds through Cannery Row and up and down the Monterey Peninsula.  Here are a couple of pics that Su sent:


Holiday Dinner – Save the Date:  We will be having our annual holiday dinner on Tuesday, December 9th at 6:00 at the Yard House.  I will be asking you to rsvp soon.
