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. We’ll be doing Rosemarie’s Run. If anybody would like a shorter run…you can make this an out-and-back run. If you run up Santa Fe Drive to Naranjal…that is around the 2 mile mark. You could turn around here, instead of going all the way to Valencia. Another option (4 miles) is to stay on Birch and run to Valencia and back.
