2016 New Year Run

A cold start to a first group run of the new year, as you can tell by the abundance of wool beanies. There was lots of talk about 2015 TCRS successes, about races run when some of us were younger and faster, about the usual catalog of running injuries, and about hopeful plans for upcoming runs in 2016. Happy New Year everyone.
