The winter months can bring slippery sidewalks, icy patches, and some seriously low temperatures. But if you love running, then you’re probably not going to let the cold weather stop you from getting your miles in! If you exercise in the winter, it’s critical to stay safe so that you don’t get injured and miss out on your workouts all together. Be sure to keep yourself safe while running in the winter and find the proper attire, shoes, and equipment that will help you keep fit no matter what Mother Nature throws at you!

Runners are a different breed.  They'll run when it's hot.  They'll run when it rains.  They'll even run in the snow.

That's why, I guess, they invented the B-rrry Scurry!

Clinton Community College will host the 41st Annual B-rrry Scurry 4-Mile Run on Saturday, February 5, 2022.  Runners and walkers love the B-rrry Scurry race day atmosphere!  The route is flat and fast with chip timing and instant results.

 

The B-rrry Scurry begins at Noon at the college, 1000 Lincoln Blvd., Clinton. Runners and walkers are invited to participate.  No pets or strollers are allowed on the race course. Packet pickup has changed due to the CDC Guidelines which prevent large gatherings in Clinton Community College. Drive Thru Packet Pickup is Wednesday and Thursday, February 2 and 3, from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m., and Friday, February 4 from Noon – 2 p.m. There will be limited Saturday packet pickup by appointment at 10:00 a.m.  There is NO raceday registration in 2022.

I don't know if there is an "official" after party, but Hook's Pub & Grill in Clinton is hosting one with food & drink specials, giveaways and prizes too!

Time Stopped in the 70s at This Rock Island Home

This Rock Island home has just hit the market for just over $100,000. If you take a look inside you might feel like you're at Grandma's house. This home seems to be stuck in the 1970s.

Shag carpeting? Check. Bright avocado 70s green? Check. Drapes that cover not just the window, but the entire wall? Check. And my favorite; carpet in the kitchen AND bath? Check. Let's take a look inside this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom affordable home that's for sale now in Rock Island.

What The Quad Cities Did For Fun in the 90's

Many times over the years, I'll be talking with friends about years gone by and I'll say "take me back".

Every generation goes through this, I assume. Looking back at a more simple time where responsibilities haven't set in and life seems fun. Opportunities are endless.

Let's go back to the 1990's to Wacky Waters, 50 Cent Beer night and revisit Mallards Mania!
