It's been a cold and snowy December so far. What does this portend? The last time we had a record cold December, it didn't snow at all after New Years! Let's not get ahead of ourselves. It's still the Christmas season and a lot of our local neighbors are having a hard time making ends meet. This year, the Christmas Lights-Seeing Run everyone chipped in and raised a little money for the State College Food Bank. Almost $300, as a matter of fact!
The group met at the Westside Stadium and headed out on 4 mile run under a full moon through neighborhoods on the west side of town. We saw the nicely revived 12 Days of Christmas display on Sparks Avenue, ran through Greentree and parts of Stonebridge. Then the group stopped at Marty's house for cookies, spiced cider, and bourbon. From there it was a short trot back to the Westside Stadium, where all could refresh themselves with beer or another beverage (it was margarita night!) and some good pub grub.
