Fun Runs (unofficial)

Now that there is more light and a little warmer temps, come to the “unofficial” Fun Runs.  Meet on Tuesday at 5:30pm on the Montpelier Bike Path behind the Dept. of Labor.  This will be a go as you please run for anyone who shows up.  The real Fun Runs don’t start until May.  The first unofficial run yesterday had one dedicated participant; see if we can improve on that next week!
