UT Vols at DHS

This past weekend I was driving by Decatur High School and saw the University of Tennessee tractor trailer parked at DHS. I wondered why it was there, maybe recruiting, but a little research and I found out that the UT Vols were practicing at DHS to prepare for their Chick-Fil-A Bowl game. Read the rest of the story in the AJC.

Here's a video from local Decatur blogger Dave Kell.

Good Morning!

As un-exciting as the title reads, this is the first blog post for the new Oakhurst Running Club website. The old site was But it really wasn't working out with the new changes that the web hosting company had made. So for 2010, it's a whole new site. I'll try and grab the old info and posts or it may just start a new.

Welcome, hope you like the new site.
