New Member!

We have a new member!   Welcome Nick to Team R.E.D!  Nick is reasonably new to Rochester, and he'll fit right in with our team!

Nick Joins Team R.E.D. at TerraLoco's Custoemr Appreciation Night!
The TerraLoco Toys for Tots & Customer Appreciation night was a great success!  A Lot of Toys for the Tots!   Additionally, there were a lot of smiles all night long!   Below are a few pics taken from the TerraLoco Facebook page.  -- there were a lot of runners, I just grabbed a few here to help you get an idea of how successful the evening was!

Toy boxes overflowing! 

Tom wins some special shorts as Gwen, Mike and Adam appear jealous.

Megan scores a mystery prize! 

Wendy lands a wonderful jacket! 

Sarah is thrilled with her new pants!

Great turnout!

    • I'll have the lyrics available (and it will be a limited playlist... probably 2 songs so we can get good at them!)  
    • Not real proud of your singing voice?  You'll fit right in with me!  Be brave and do it anyway! 
  • Tuesdays - Just a note to let you know the Trail Run crew is officially taking a couple of week break over the holidays.  If anyone wants to coordinate a Tuesday run, just let me know and I'll be happy to share it here.    When the Trail crew resumes, it will either be for trail running or snowshoeing!  We just need some snow!
