Fall Clean Up Time (An opportunity for new Members’ parents to meet the “old” ones!)

But it has to be done…

From Sharon:

We would like to start the fall clean up at the track.
First on the agenda is Monday, October 1st.
We need parents to help put the rail away. JP will be there early to get things started, but then his love of coaching will pull him to the trails.  The putting away job is much easier than the spring job of setting up.  Many hands make light work!!!  and this will get it done quickly. 
Please let JP know ( you will be available to help so we know that we will have a big crew.

Thank you!

Having fun while you run is always in fashion, just ask the designers

Perhaps this is something we should be promoting as a major Summer event for all active Niagara Region people whose 40th birthday occurs in that year?

From National Post:

It’s very difficult to flourish as a runner if you dread every step you take. The fashion world, a group not particularly synonymous with strenuous physical activities (at least not during the day), seized upon this notion recently by combining exercise with good times when a group of fashionistas gathered this past Sunday at a track in Toronto to celebrate the 40th birthday of Bustle Clothing’s creative director, Shawn Hewson.
