January 2020 E-Newsletter
The staff of RUNOHIO wishes you and your family a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year!

When you are making your New Year' Resolutions, I hope you will consider volunteering at a local road race. If possible, help to sponsor a local race or help a new runner understand proper training. Also, help your neighbor who might need some assistance. If we all do a few kind acts to help others who are nearby, I am sure 2020 will be a Great Year!

Hopefully, this winter you will be able to continue your running.

Have a Great New Year!!

Matt McGowan
