Polar Bear Run Info

Below is the Polar Bear run info from Kirk. He uses the word "Granfalloon" in there. I don't know what it means either, but it sounds sweet.
MDRA Polar Bear Runs


It is time, once again, for the Polar Bears to come out of hibernation
and begin to run again-that is, after a few well deserved weeks off
after their fall marathons. The Polar Bears will met every Saturday
from October 27th until the beginning of March at various locations
around the metropolitan area, depending on trail conditions and the
random wants and desires of the group.

Okay, okay, I'm sure there are some people asking Polar what and Polar why??? The Polar Bears is a Granfalloon (you'll have to look it up)
of runners of all capabilities. Some of us run 2:45 marathons, some
of us run 5:30 marathons. All of us love running and all of us love
getting out and defeating winter in our own little way. We meet
Saturdays at 8 AM and almost always meet for coffee or breakfast
afterwards in order to warm up and enjoy the company of each other.

I organize the Polar Bears through a Google Group that can be found at the following address I've limited viewers to members to help guard against any unsavory sorts-- so if you aren't already a member, please ask at the website to become one and I'll send you an invitation. Once a week, you'll receive an email from me telling you that the schedule has been
updated and you'll simply have to visit the Google Group Website to see where we are meeting that week.
