Let’s face it, it’s tough to stay in shape during the winter. At least our upper bodies have kept busy this year what with all the shoveling of snow and stacking of sandbags. We still need to keep our hearts and lungs healthy with some aerobic activity though and It’s a whole lot easier to stay in shape than to get back in shape. Lots of LoCaLs are STREAKING! It’s not what you think. The last couple of months my Facebook newsfeed has been totally blown up with screen shots of treadmills and gps routes. That’s a lot of positivity if you ask me. People walking, running and even shuffling, :) that would be Rod Mccollough. No matter how fast or slow they post it up! I love this, the triumph is in just getting it done rather than just being the fastest or farthest. Linda Powell wants Susanville Runners to be completely INclusive! Susanville Runners Facebook group was started in 2011 by Linda Powell, Lisa Urquizu, Carol Growden and Katie Zumpano and it appears to have hit the ground running, see what I did there. Here’s what Linda tells me is going on~
One visiting runner posted “Can I just say I LOVED how many thumbs up I got from people in this town as I ran by. Not just older people but little kiddos and teens too. I’ve never experienced that before. I’ve usually seen a wave or a quick hello but the thumbs up was really encouraging. Thank you Susanville!”
You know it! That’s our Ville!
