Winter Stinks Group Run for 1-22-11 @ Kent State Recreation Center

I have tried to find safe and clean roads for us to run in Hartville.  As of this morning I have not found any that are acceptable.  As a result, we are running at the Kent State University Recreation Center. 

Please meet Hope Magnus at the Mike's Place Restaurant (1700 South Water Street, Kent, OH/Corner of RT 43 and 261) at 8:00 a.m.  We will carpool to the Kent State University Recreation Center.  Please bring $8.00 for admission AND photo ID is required. The indoor track is 6 times around for one mile.  I've run there many times and it can be pretty fun!
