About NATRA Blog

This page is meant for folks to post their thoughts on the Saturday group run. I (Neil) will post a blurb about who showed up and where it was held. From there, I hope that other runners will share their thoughts since we often have different experiences on the same run. Enjoy!

19 runners and 7 dogs headed out of the frozen Flagstaff tundra to the much warmer climes of Red Rock country. Sedona Police Chief Joe Vernier even found some time to join us for the run! NATWA (Northern Arizona Trail Walker's Associations) made their presence felt with 5 runners choosing the much more pleasant pace of walking Huckaby. There once again was a bit of confusion with runners taking a short detaour from the main trail. Once back at the parking lot, Bruce made his annual collection of mistletoe and Susan shared her delicious chocolate chip brownies with the gang. We then had coffee and bagels sitting outside at the Ravenheart.

Seasoned Kitchen Pasta Making Dinner

Tony hosted NATRA's second annual Seasoned Kitchen pasta dinner. Tony and Gail prepared multi-colored salads, Dana baked gluten free browns with crushed almonds and Tony taught everyone how to make pasta. To cap off the night Tony made non-fat vanilla ice cream which perfectly complemented Dana's brownines. It was all for a great cause as we raised $140 for the Northern Arizona Food Bank.
