As temperatures rose to a balmy 50 degrees, more runners started to turn out to run their normal loops around city park. Runners crowded around the kickin’ fire pit and chatted about the upcoming Louisiana Marathon and the Rock and Roll at the beginning of February.
With all the exciting races coming up in the spring, everyone is starting to find some sort of motivation for some fast races in the coming months. Along with the excitement of racing, local celebrities, Carlos Arroz and Ultra Runner, Celeste Dolan, made triumphant returns to the weekly runs. Run group can’t be complete without another celeb, LRC Kitty, who while finding time to pose for a photo-shoot, made her rounds greeting runners and went hunting for her next snack. Lastly, run group regular, Lisa Hickman, celebrated her birthday this week and treated all the hardworking runners to some fabulous cake. Thank you to all the runners who show up and make run groups a weekly destination for fitness and fun!
