The flurry of holiday related activities for 2017 continues! Mark your calendars!  :santa:  :santa:  :santa:  :santa:  :santa:  :brr:  :brr: 

 

Who: You (and your friends and family!)
What: Christmas lights, running, eating, drinking and being merry!

When:  Friday, December 15 @ 6:00PM 
Where: Foot Traffic, 333 SW Taylor (NOTE THE NEW LOCATION for 2017)


This is a 6.4 mile run that includes a stop to enjoy the decorated houses of Peacock Lane followed by the most awesome potluck once we return to Foot Traffic DOWNTOWN location (new for 2017). For those interested in a shorter walk route, we'll likely do a 3 mile or so downtown holiday sightseeing route. 

 

The weather can be unpredictable so please dress appropriately and remember that Peacock Lane will likely be crowded and a walk through (i.e. layers and headlamps are a good idea). All paces are welcome and encouraged. We'll likely split into several groups, so you can either find someone else running about the same pace, or memorize the route and be wildly popular with someone else who appears lost.

 

Post what you plan to bring to the potluck, below are some general categories of things we'll need, I'll update this with who's bringing what as people post.

 

We always end up with an amazing spread, so lets be sure to keep that tradition alive!

Paper plates/utensils (Cups for warm or cold bev, napkins, plastic forks/spoons)
(Plan on at least 40 people) Can split this with someone else.

 

Beverages (beer, wine, soda, cider, etc)

 

Finger food/Appetizers (chips, dips, breads, veggies, fruit, salsa, etc) 

 

Savory (pizza, chili, casseroles, meats, potatoes, salads, pasta sides, 

 

Sweets (cookies, cakes, desserts, rum balls, those yummy cookie bars that Lisa always makes, etc)

 

Help setting up or clean up (A few people)

Thanks for the food!

 

We are just trying something new. We received feedback that the NE Fremont Foot Traffic store was difficult to get to with traffic (I know the story everywhere, every time....).

I'm in! Will bring some fruit (finger food/appetizers). I can help with set up also.

 

For those who have not done this Peacock Lane run in the past, the run and lights are nice, but the real star is the potluck meal afterwards. Always the best of the year!


If I had some ham I could make ham and eggs if I had some eggs.
