  1. Congrats you two for getting this off and running! Good luck and have fun. Maybe someday I'll join you. The fall is not good with 3 kids playing soccer, 2 runners, and 1 swimmer. December will be better.

  2. Thanks Sally! We plan to make this a monthly thing where each month will start in the same location but the courses will vary slightly. Every month we hope to change the start location to keep it fresh. It is all about exploring the trails together doing what we love: running!
