There was mumble chatter along the way such as “remnants of the BRR”, to “which leg represents the middle finger…”. Overall, YHC appreciated everyone’s effort given either their participation in this past weekend’s trail race, continued running and/or training for a future event or goal, or just running to and from the AO like Marv and Sippy are always prone to do. (Respect to all of you guys!).
Announcements: Please offer up or help support a 3rd F for this month. Given the holiday season, it is easy to forget those for whom this time of year is simply a reminder of their ongoing struggles. Case in point, TYA will be sharing information regarding an organization that offers meals to homeless high school students (one of which works at our stomping ground ET). DK is also working on an event so please reach out to him.
