January was another light month for our runners race-wise (hello off-season!), but a few of our teammates still made a point of getting out there and logging some bib-clad miles. Here’s what our crew got up to last month:
Happy New Year! Now that we’re through the chaos of the holidays and fully embarking on 2017, let’s take a glance back at how our teammates closed out last year and chat a little about what our team has on the agenda for the coming months.
