The weather couldn't be more perfect for Okefenokee Track Club's annual Santa Run, with Santa leading the pack on his bike. There was a good turn-out of elves & a couple of reindeer who ran along Plant Avenue waving at passers-by. Ron, Kenny & Denise want to wish each & every one of you a very Merry Christmas & wonderful New Year!

Debbie Yawn & Mary Beth Strickland completed the Tri-2-Be-Tuff challenge - 3 half marathons in Oct., Nov. & Dec. We are really proud of you ladies for meeting each race head-on while facing another challenge - rain at all 3! Apparently, there were many local runners at the Jax Bank Half-Marathon on Dec. 16 but neither Debbie, Mary Beth nor Allen Smith knew of any of those runners. Hmmm . . . if there are that many runners in Waycross running a half-marathon, maybe they'll show up for our upcoming Swamp Run? Anyway, Allen finished the Jax Half with a time of 2:10:10, Mary Beth 2:16:28 and Debbie 2:21:07.
