Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend Newsletter
Current Issue: December 2013

The middle of December. It’s a time of year when we can find ourselves doing more “running around” than running. But it’s also a great time of year for reflecting on our running goals (see our Motivation column), and dreaming about the running season ahead (and a new Richmond Road Races shirt).

Most of all, it’s a great time of year for giving thanks. We’d like to thank everyone who made 2013 such a fantastic year for Run Ottawa and the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend. That includes our amazing volunteers (like Dave, our Water Station Coordinator) but most of all, you, the runners, who bring our races to life and make them more popular every year.

So, from all of us here at Run Ottawa, we wish you a very Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year! See you in 2014!
