Cool Saturday Run

The group run this morning was cool in a couple ways. The temp was 43 when we took off which was definetly cool, but also it was cool getting to meet some new people and talk about running. The group is growing and new faces are showing up. I love meeting people, especially runners.

This group has a lot of trail runners so be on the lookout for a group trail run soon.
