The Original Spitfires
Weather looks a little sketchy for running Saturday but that shouldn’t stop anyone! Best to keep it simple and run from the fountain. 06:30 start. Tricia and Susan will be around so you know that’s where all the cool people will be. I’m traveling so I can’t be there.
This Saturday, we’re meeting in the center of Glastonbury.
- Place: Center of Glastonbury – across from the fountain
- Time: 6:30 AM
- Distance: 10-13 miles or whatever you feel like doing.
Good luck to Bryan as he runs his second marathon in VT. Remember – hills will make you stronger!
For those with a little extra time on their hands this weekend – 2 reading opportunities:
Monica Guy’s dad’s first novel, The Reluctant Pirate, is now available in paperback as well as Kindle.
Will you buy it? It’s really good – no bias, promise – and a fast read. Somalian pirates, a Cardiff boy, a beautiful Norwegian officer, a love triangle, intrigue, high-speed boat chases… and the insights into modern piracy are absolutely true and fascinating – my dad’s been in the shipping industry since he got kicked out of school and has dealt with dozens of piracy cases.
Buy it on Kindle at Amazon.com (If you don’t have a Kindle you can download a Kindle app)
Or buy the paperback from Booklocker.
Ryan McKeen’s wife’s first novel, The Seven Day Target, is available in paperback and Kindle. Her pen name is Natalie Charles.
Love never dies, but can it kill? He never meant to speak to her again. Back in Arbor Falls for a funeral, Special Agent Nick Foster has moved on. He has no plans to stay in his tiny hometown–or to reunite with the beautiful Libby Andrews. His onetime fiancée broke his heart, and what’s past should stay buried.
Civilized Running Group
Please meet in the Parking Lot across from the Fountain at 6:30 AM on Saturday to run 10 miles. The route will be decided on Saturday. Razia and I will not be there this Saturday since we will be out of town. Have a good run everyone. Congratulations to David for finishing the Shires of Vermont Marathon on last Sunday with a great time of 4:47:00.
