    Ya know, this running thing keeps you busy all the time! I thought after April, things would slow down. Oh no. This past month we were pretty light on MTC events but that didn’t stop it from being a busy month. There are the weekly fun runs at Fleet Feet, Fit2Run, Daiquiri Deck and Mr. Beery’s. And then Chris DeLeon- ardo with his fun theme runs on occa- sional Saturdays. The last run was a “cake” run and he made a 25 pound carrot cake (yeah, you read that right ... a TWENTY- FIVE POUND CARROT CAKE) to refuel with after the run. He also made a vegan cake (for me) that was delish!

    We did have one MTC event … the Fun Run and Brunch! Nearly 200 people rsvp’d and I’d say we had between 150-170 attend. This year’s prize for finishing the race at 00:00 was an entry to BBR. Nine year old, Jamie Sweiderk was the lucky winner! We also had a comped entry for the winner of the trivia contest. Several were close, but it came down to to a tie breaker, and Connor Wozniak took home the prize. A huge thank you to Cindi

    Wozniak for arranging everything. And thank you to everyone that helped out that day! You guys rock!

    Up next SUMMER BEACH RUNS, check out the schedule on the cover. The beach is still under construction, so look at the map to see where we’ll be set up. Also check out the info below about BBR and on the right about a special SUP and kayak fundraiser.

    See ya at the beach!
