Full moon during Christmas in Columbia Falls , Montana
updated 12/31/15: Today was my last day of work!Woo Hoo! …We have quite a few for RRGrade Run. Can use any driver help….
Update on ARCH RIVAL, San Anselmo: We had to close that small branch because the lease ran out -and the owner of the space needed it expand his dental business. Arch Rival will keep the Strawberry and Corte Madera locations.
Just a quick posting as I’m between flights (5 hour wait) and I’ll be getting in early, early Tuesday morning, so I won’t make the 9 am Tuesday workout; it’s listed below. I will be working at CM Arch Rival Tuesday – Friday ( my last week). Track sessions will be on for both morning groups.
