This Week – Dec. 11th

Great Bender Christmas get together last Friday. Good people, good food, good time had. Nice to see so many Benders! Feel free to send your pictures to Mike B and we’ll share them on the website. Thanks to Michelle B for organizing.

Sunday saw many Benders up in Terra Cotta for the Egg Nog Jog, many Benders running and cheering (Thanks for the bell ringing Karyn and Grace – near the end when we were getting exhausted). That warm tent and soup at the end were much appreciated. Be sure to check out the pics here.

Looks like it’s time to break out the winter spikes. Lots of snow expected in the forecast, bundle up stay warm. Dress in bright colours and be seen.

Hope everyone’s weekend went well.

Sunday morning we had a great turnout at Terra Cotta, cold, but the weather co-operated. No rain!! Sunny (sunglass conditions), counted 16 Benders. We missed a few from last week….the Laura’s, Gina, Ben, David, Annette….Where were you all? A great tailgate afterwards, thank you for the Grand Marnier Firmo! And thank you all for all the treats.

Come on out if you can next sunday.

Dont forget our Bender Christmas party Friday night. Dec 8 at J Red and Co.. more details to come from Michelle, and a very tasty food menu. RSVP to Michelle please.

Nashville in April….a big Bender road trip is in the works. It will be a hoot. A marathon, a half, a 5 km, something for everyone. And lots to see. So far we have a dozen Benders going. Sign up. We will send you some links.

This week:

  • Tuesday – 6:30 – Tim’s at Shoppers world – 6 km – the Christmas lights must be going up!
  • Wednesday – 6:30 – Bramalea RR – 8 or 10 km
  • Sunday – We are looking at Terra Cotta one more time. It’s so nice and fresh air up there. Maybe we can run the Egg Nog Jog route backwards for a change. And of course a tailgate afterwards
