I haven't updated the blog in a bit so I figured I would add some upcoming events on here. Since you are looking anyway...
12/15 I have planned a short trek of Rhode Island's North South Trail (NST). Some of us will be running about 20 miles and others around 10 miles. As of right now we have 6-8 people that will be joining in on the fun...updates on this will be sent out soon on the event page.
On 12/16 I will team up with a few Turtles to again take on the WTAC at the Old Mountain 5k Trail Race in Wakefield, RI. This is part of a winter trail series put on by WTAC's Mike Galoob.
As of this Tuesday, we now have a Tuesday Night Turtle Christmas Party planned for 12/21. TNT Christmas parties are always a fun time with great beer and good food.
Christmas is on a Tuesday this year, so there will no traditional run on Tuesday night, however, every Christmas morning I organize a TNT X-Mas morning run from the Sunday lot, we run 10 miles and then have some coffee and treats in the parking lot.
After that I plan on hitting the roads again and running the Hangover Classic in Bristol, RI. I have run this every year since 2008.
That is all I can think of for now! I plan to put some race results and pictures up as they happen.

Decided to do something different this morning, so off to Arcadia to run out and back on part of the North South Trail. I have run on these trails before, but decided to take a few photos today.
