February Thaw on MARS

With the arrival of February, we seem to be having some (slightly) warmer weather.  Why not come out and join us for a run this week?

On Tuesday at 6:30 am we will meet in the high school parking lot to do a Fartlek Ladder workout on the loop around the University of Waterloo campus.  All levels of runner are welcome and the workout will be explained.  It’s getting brighter and warmer out so come out and give us a try.
