Another (hot) Tuesday night track practice is in the books. I think we have had 90* Tuesdays since early July based on my online weather searching. Most of us at the track did the Yasso 800s, others variations of 400s / or time fartlek intervals. A good turnout for our final Summer Cartel gathering where several new members (Jake, Nate, Heidi, Gretchen) received their FMTC Singlets. Sorry, there was not a Thai food truck at Cartel – but 10 pizzas were consumed and a reasonable # of craft beers from Cullen and company. Hoping that Otis got his paper submitted by the 1:00 AM deadline – not exactly “family momentum” but academic momentum can be a legitimate reason to miss practice, especially if you are writing about running. The list below is an amalgamation of track/road/cartel/partners etc – my apologies if I omitted anyone. Finally a farewell and big THANKS to Laura Brenner for her work on our board the club website over the past 2 years – she will begin her “On the Road” trip soon which will include 26.2 Miles on the road/streets of Portland, ME…….jeff

Running quote of the week – “If you ain’t rubbing you ain’t racing” – Des Linden commentary at the Prefontaine meet after several runners went down during the men’s 2- mile race. Ask Paul Chelimo if he agrees.
