Please BE CAREFUL when running!!!   There may be a lot of traffic and drivers will be distracted by all of the Christmas lights.

The directions for this run appear very long, but that is partly because there are a number of cul-de-sacs that we will run to the end of and then turn around.  When this is the case…you will see “180°” in the directions.  We’ll have directions for you at the run…but here is a preview:

Greetings from CHERIE and ROB:  I heard from Cherie.  She said that she has been keeping busy with her new job.  She and Rob hope to get back to running with the group soon.  She wanted me to tell everybody “Hi and Merry Christmas” from the two of them.

Thomas House Shelter:  We collected $485 worth of gift cards to be donated to the families at Thomas House this holiday season.  Thank you very much to all who contributed and for opening your hearts and being so generous!  Thank you also to PAM for volunteering to organize this year’s BR holiday charity project!  Thomas House provides a list of items that they would greatly appreciate receiving throughout the year that will be useful to the families.  I will periodically post the list and if you have any items that you would like to donate…just bring it to a run.  We will happily deliver the collected items to Thomas House.
