We are going to meet in Downtown Fullerton on the SE corner of Harbor Blvd. and Wilshire Ave. at 6:15 p.m There is a parking structure surrounded by Wilshire Ave., Pomona, E. Amerige and Harbor Blvd. If that lot is full…you may find parking in another lot or on the street.  After the run…stay and enjoy the Farmer’s Market!  John will bring directions for the run.

Happy Birthday JUAN and CHERIE!!!  Juan celebrates his birthday on Thursday and Cherie celebrates her birthday on Friday.  We hope that you both enjoy your special day!

Welcome TIM and Welcome Back LIZ J!!!  Tim ran with the group for the first time on Tuesday.  Liz has recovered from her back injury and came out and ran on Saturday and Tuesday. 

Message from LISA:  Lisa will be spending some time in Winter Park, CO this summer.  She said that our runners are welcome to come up and stay with her while she is there.  Here is some info…

The best weekend would be 8/14 – 8/16 and if anyone wants to add a day on either end that would be ok.  The townhouse sleeps 12.  There are 3 bedrooms (2 Queen Bedrooms and 1 Bunkbed + Pullout couch double).  The Bonus room has bunkbeds and the living room has a pullout queen bed.  Here is the link to the townhouse info.

There is a great restaurant on top of the mountain where we can take the Gondola for brunch on Sunday.  The townhouse is about 30 minutes from Grand Lake and about 45 min from Rockly Mtn National Park.  We could plan a few hikes/runs and possibly a boat excursion on Mike’s boat.  It would also be possible to hike to one of the huts in the area (overnighting is possible).  There are lots of options.
Here’s Donna on one of the trails near Lisa’s place in Winter Park.  Congrats to Donna on participating in the Senior Games on Saturday and Monday!  She said she placed 7th in the 10K…a very humid race.  She placed 14th in the 5K and it rained.  Donna will be visiting family in Nebraska before heading home.
