New Year Musing: “You’re never too old, never too bad, never too late, and never too sick to start from the scratch once again.” ~ Bikram Choudhury
This month’s routes (you have a choice of a 1.4 mile for beginners and a 3.4 mile for those looking for a longer route) will be starting at American Health and Fitness at 59 S Main St in Miamisburg, and making a loop around the beautiful city of Miamisburg. The course we will end right back where we started, then the party will move to Bennett’s Publical.
Thanks to the friendly folks at American Health & Fitness, they are allowing the use of their state of the art facility to get ready for the race. So while you’re inside changing from your boring work clothes into your running gear, check out this great gym and see what all they have to offer.
Now for the part everyone has been waiting for…. beer! Bennett’s Publical has graciously offered to be the adult beverage sponsor. So after we burn off a couple hundred calories, lets head down to Bennett’s to add them right back on with a pint…. or two…. probably two… at least.
We are a group with a passion for 2 of life’s greatest pleasures…. running and beer!
