The freezing point never felt so balmy. I'm feeling high as a a kite today, what with it being 45 degrees warmer than yesterday and the sun shining.
Next weekend is the 2nd of 4 walking/running races in Canton called the Frozen Foote. It's a 4 mile course, quite flat, all on Miner Street. There are many of you who are already familiar with them and have likely run or walked in them before. Well, I'm hoping to drum up some folks who would like to get out there and walk it. I'll be at Appleton next Saturday the 11th at 9:30 am with our dog Rye, ready to roll. Come a couple minutes beforehand to sign in. We're planning to keep a steady 4 mi/hr clip. Do you have an hour to spare for some conversation and exercise?
WHAT: Frozen Foote WALK/RUN
WHEN: JAN 11 FEB 8 MAR 8

The walkers are all spread out as they start at varying times. It'd be fun to get a group starting together. Last month there were around 30 walkers and 90 runners.
