MARS has bling!  We will be offering both a technical running T shirt for $25 and a racing singlet for $32.  The technical T shirt will have the saying shown on the back above (the shirt will be the same color as the front of the shirt although slightly different here).  The technical Ts should be available at our meeting March 19 in a full range of sizes.  The singlets will be ordered after payment is received.  Hope to see you all at our March 19 Inaugural Meeting 7-9pm at the Active Living Center.
