What a week ahead! Going to be fun!

We'll start this post with an update regarding Roger.  His family is so very thankful for all the thoughts and prayers that are coming their way.  It means more then you may imagine.. the outpouring is so strong!

Roger had some strong moments today, yet with an approach to allow his body to fully rest, aiding overall recovery, he is still sedated.  You can visit him at St Marys, and Joyce welcomes your visit... however, Roger is sedated, so please prepare yourself to realize you won't be chatting with him.

He's one of the best men I have ever met.. he's fit, he's happy and he's super nice.  Keep sending those prayers.  Many of use believe in the power of prayer, and if you don't, pray anyway.


The weather is moving the right direction and it sure seems attitudes are as well!   Roger was present at each of the events today....  many members asking, praying for a strong/quick recovery.  

The Off Season Striders post run was a rockin' laugh out loud event!   Then the snowshoe crew loaded two hours of shoeing and lit up the Bears Den with laughter and fun!    Let's keep it rolling!

During snowshoe.. we found heaven on snow.. it was an incredible space to stumble upon, and following all the effort to get up there.. the reward was fantastic!  Nobody had been there before us.. and it became a great playground!


Here's a look at the week ahead!
