Hi Folks,

You will get in some different exercises: jump rope, a workout of Swings and other stuff – then learn more details on KB Cleans and Swing Cleans! This is time to ask questions. Will end with Deadlifts. 2) Getting head count for rides needed on New Year’s traditional RRGrade Run.(see below)

1/1/16  FRIDAY, 9 am . New Year’s RRG Grade RUN 8M. Our NYear’s tradition that ties in with the Open House at the Gravity Car Museum at the top of Tam. Quite the gathering at the top because many hikers make the trek up from Bootjack, Pantoll and other locations, so you’ll see them on the Grade as you run up. They will have refreshments and goodies at the Museum; memorabilia, history and movies of the old “Crookedest Railroad” in the world. They ask for small donation (non-profit outfit): a good program. …..need HEAD COUNT for those requiring ride down the hill ($5). LET ME KNOW we will have several cars to help – hopefully.

so far: Judi S, Kevin P, Gerald A, Lisa L, Michelle W, Mika?, Kathy B?, Pam J?
