2012 Annual Christmas Run

Every year our small group of runners get together for a "special" run just prior to the holidays. Last year, some of our usual members were unable to participate for various reasons so our numbers were down. But we made a nice comeback this year, with eleven people showing up.

Our annual Christmas run involved two elements, a short run and a stop at our local watering hole, the Arch Street Tavern, to toast the year and remember those runners not with us anymore. Our short run this year was on a course we refer to as "The Zimmerman (aka "Z" man's) trail. We lost Doug Zimmerman several years ago. This course was one of his favorite routes and is entirely on the west side of the Connecticut River. 

In past years, we've run on a course that goes over the Connecticut River called "The Cherico Trail" in memory of Dave Cherico, who we lost back in 2001.  This route is a little bit longer and crosses the Charter Oak Bridge.

So in memory of Doug and Dave, we wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.
