We will do the Starbuck’s Run…which is 8.4 miles.  I know that there are some of you who may want a shorter run and some of you who may want a longer run.

6 miles – When you get to Fairmont Blvd (just after the 3 miles point)…make a RIGHT (instead of a left) down Fairmont and then a RIGHT on La Palma back to Starbucks

8.4 miles – Follow the Yorba Linda Starbuck’s Route as mapped

10.4 miles – When you get to the corner of Lakeview and Yorba Linda Blvd…run WEST on Yorba Linda Blvd. and catch the Nixon Library Trail.  Run to the Community Center and back.  Continue with the rest of the Starbuck’s route as mapped.

Brea Runners’ 2014 Holiday Charity:    Our running group first began it’s annual tradition of helping those in need during the holiday time back in 2011 when we adopted a family who was struggling financially.  The following year we adopted several senior citizens for the holiday and last year we collected socks and underwear to donate to homeless shelters.  This year, Pam suggested that we help the Thomas House Family Shelter.  Pam contacted Cyndee, who is the Executive Director for Thomas House and is also a California Cruiser.   Thomas House provides shelter for families with children and teaches them skills to become independent and self-sufficient.  Cyndee thanks us for selecting Thomas House as our holiday charity and said that they would appreciate gift cards, which will be given as gifts to their families living at the shelter.

We are asking for donations of gift cards in either $10 or $25 denominations from: Kohl’s, Walmart, Target and Stater Bros.  (If it is easier to donate cash…we will be happy to purchase the gift cards for you.)  Please give your gift cards to Pam or Julie by December 16th. 

Of course…your participation in this project is completely voluntary!  But…it really does warm the heart to make the holidays a little bit merrier for those who are having a tough time right now.

Yosemite Half Marathon:  Rick signed up for this race, which is held on October 10, 2015.  He said that if any Brea Runners want to run it…he has room at his house to stay.  If you’re interested…you’d better register quickly.  Last year, it sold out in 9 days.

Sharon and I were talking about how much fun it would be to run trail races in National Parks.  She sent me this link (and I forwarded it to Rick).  Take a look at the website and you’ll see lots of other races held in Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons, the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell and more!

Santa Hustle 5K:  If anybody is looking for a fun holiday race…this one is held in Buena Park on December 14th.  Cindy 50, Missy and Rick N will be there!

Our Rain Runner PAT! Since it was pouring rain on Tuesday night…most of us elected to skip the run and stay home where it was warm and dry.  John stopped by Snail’s on the off chance that somebody might show up to run and would need directions.  Lo and behold…Pat showed up!  Yay for Pat for being such a dedicated runner and thanks to John for stopping by Snail’s on a rainy night when he wasn’t planning on running himself!

The weather forecast says there is a good chance of rain on Tuesday evening.  If it is pouring rain…consider the run canceled.  If it is sprinkling…it is your decision whether or not you want to come out and run.  If you do…please BE CAREFUL and watch the cars!  Drivers will have a more difficult time seeing runners in the dark and rain.

Happy Birthday HELEN C!!!  Helen’s birthday is on Tuesday.  We haven’t seen you in awhile and hope that you will come out and run with us when you are visiting your boys in Brea.  Enjoy your special day, Helen!

Please Don’t Forget to rsvp for the Holiday Party!  The info is in the previous blog post.
