Corridor Running – January Update
Hey guys! If you don’t know I am on the board at Corridor Running. It’s my local running club (Cedar Rapids – Iowa City). The main website is going to be going through some updates, so I thought I would write what is happening or what is new this year with the club. (If you have questions just ask me – firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can find me on twitter, facebook, etc). This information is also shared in the Corridor Running newsletter, please sign up here.
