2nd Annual Winter Shindig (aka Holiday Get Together/Party)

Thank you to everyone who came last Saturday afternoon. I hope everyone enjoyed themselves. The ‘big floor games’ were a huge hit with the younger members and siblings, so thank you for lending us those. Also a very big ‘thank you’ to everyone who donated a ‘basket’ and/or bought raffle tickets. The response in both cases was huge. So huge that we almost doubled our fundraising total from last year. This year you all raised $1,400 which I will be delivering to Animal Friends for them to put towards the Pets for Vets program. I am so proud of the T2 Community.

Change the battery – I was reading an article today in which Apple admits to slowing down the processing in older iPhone 6s and iPhone 7s; not enough juice to immediately fulfill the demands of the most recent apps. However, there is a way around this – change the battery.

It got me thinking, as I was pounding and ‘dying’ on the trails with the dogs, that it would be so easy for us older athletes if we could just change our batteries and be up to speed again. Unfortunately this isn’t possible so we have to take care of the battery we have.

If you are reading this, you are probably already on the way to preserving what you have – by adopting a healthy lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle is definitely a choice, sometimes a very hard choice but with a supportive, like-minded community behind you, it makes it a little easier. Exercise (scaling where necessary), rest, sleep, clean eating, social interaction/community, mental stimulation … all contribute towards a healthy lifestyle.

Which leads nicely into …..

The every changing weather forecast has temperatures hovering around freezing with a few possible snow flakes. What awesome running conditions. 10:00am at Jefferson MS on Sunday.

The Little Hats, Big Hearts appeal is still going. Wade Roth donated some yarn if you would like to make a hat or two.
