Let’s Train Fun!

Technical glitch–Solved

Contrary to what your browser and security software may have told you over the weekend, we are still here and as safe as ever.

Our problem: our SSL certificate expired Friday. The new certificate was installed Tuesday morning.

So, there was a period when our site appeared to be “BAD.” It should be okay, again.

Thanks for your patience.

Good time just to go for a walk, or a run, or a bike ride.

Train Fun!
