Hi Runners,
If you haven't heard, it is sad news that our fellow runner Mary Andrews passed away this week. Little Mary ran with us for many years. She was so petite, so pretty, and so happy and full of life.  She moved to Jacksonville a few years back, but came back to visit and we saw her a few times.  She was always training for Boston!  The funeral will be Saturday morn, 10:00 a,.m. at Countryside Baptist.  Due to Covid  I do not feel comfortable enough to attend a funeral.  But I will remember her by wearing my running shoes all day, and think of her running Boston in heaven.  

This Saturday, November 27th, we will start our long run at 6:30 a.m. at the Mill to run to Haile.  This route is 8, 10 or 12 miles long, we can tell you when to loop back or how to add more. It is roadside, some sidewalk, paved trail, and we notice hills on way back. Water stops every 2 to 3 miles, two have bathrooms, one is at Haile Publix, you could buy gatorade,  but you may feel safer if you bring your own drink and social distance yourself as needed.   The Mill is the Bakery Mill and Deli restaurant located off Newberry Road, west of I-75, in the shopping center across from now closed Kmart. That address is 1143 NW 76th Blvd.  On MapMyRun: 12.05 mi Mill to Haile  

Breakfast Club - Look forward to going in the Mill.   As I am still unable to run, please text as soon as you get there so some of us can join you!

Run happy, Diane

Perry, Ronald L

Hi Diane.  
 Glad you are still around.   I still walk jog some.  Guess it will be a life time thing as long as I can anyway.  Still working. Maybe retire soon     

Happy holidays.   Ron Perry.
