This week we’ll do our Christmas light routes. Feel free to wear something festive, and don’t forget – Wear your headlamp and reflective gear. We normally run this one slower than normal, stopping to see the sights, take some pictures, and regroup.

As usual, we’ll meet at the front steps of First Baptist Church at 6:15pm and leave for the run at 6:20pm.
