From my aging runner’s perception, it felt like the hottest night we have had this Summer, but not hot enough to discourage ~ 40 of our runners from hitting the FM track last evening for Tuesday workouts. A major Thank-you to Walter Newcomer (who while not running after recovering from knee surgery), still provided us with water at the track and watermelon post-workout. Other thanks to Peter Weida for his continued chocolate milk contribution and to those who helped consume 40 PBRs – thus allowing for an easy transition to the recycling bin when I got home. No IV fluids were needed. Sam G received a special “steeplechase” beer + double IPA for outstanding racing efforts and Georganne got her belated well-deserved 1-mile (4:59) time bonus. Welcome to new FMTC members Wade and Brian.
