Dear Rose City Running Club Members,
As winter settles in, we would like to reflect on the winter running season and share some thoughts with the Club.
We are grateful for your continued support of the Rose City Running Club. Despite the colder temperatures and sometimes snowy conditions, your commitment to staying active and supporting one another is inspiring.
Our club has seen significant growth in the past few months, with new members joining our ranks. To our new runners, welcome! We encourage you to connect with fellow members, join our group runs, and experience the warmth of our running community.
Winter running presents its own set of challenges, but it also offers a chance for us to strengthen our resilience. Whether you are navigating around the ice (I know we are) or braving chilly winds and rain, the camaraderie of our group runs remains a source of motivation and connection. So, let's layer up and continue to explore the beauty of winter running.
We just held our Annual Meeting on January 16, 2024 and elected our officers for the 2024 calendar year. We wish to thank everyone for their participation. Be sure to look for an email containing the minutes from the meeting.
Please check Kathy Hale’s column for upcoming races and consider volunteering as Race Team Captains. Kathy would like to have a transition captain who takes on the race team role in 2025 and two people can share this role as co-captains. The Spring Distance Classic 5K and 15K is coming up on Sunday, March 24, 2024. Bobbi Comer has graciously agreed to again host a post-run party at her house. Let’s try to get a large turnout for this event.
As we navigate the colder months together, let's keep the spirit of encouragement and support alive. Please remember to share your winter running tips and race reports as we motivate each other to stay active.
Thank you for being an integral part of the Rose City Running Club.
Wendy and Carol
