Thank you guys so much for joining up with my new group. I have a feeling that we're going to be a pretty active group because there are a slew of good runners here in Western Mass. And I should know; they kick me to the curb all the time. But runners are surely the greatest people in the world - so a runners club for singles is to be envied. Run hot! I already have a logo for the t-shirts... But I digress...
What I wanted to say was that I need input from you to make the club work well. For example, it's definitely the worst time of the year to start a running club. We're losing sunlight at about 5:00, so I think after work runs are out until at least February. I can barely get seven miles in, running out my front door after work. If anyone has a good route that's well lit, let me; let us know. I also want to schedule runs for everyone. If Cheryl in Athol wants to host a run in her local area, I can schedule something for her as long as she's willing to host. It can be a win-win for everyone. And I need ideas of cool weekend routes too. I can schedule anything you want, as long as someone is willing to host if I can't make it. My custody schedule sometimes has me tied up tighter than I want to be, so to keep things going, I may need to lean on the membership sometimes.
Please don't hesitate to contact me and share ideas. My computer access is actually "in flux" right now, but I can surely be reached quickly at home at[masked]-2783.
And thanks again to Pat, the organizer of the Spice of Life group for letting me get this club together. She is an incredible person.
