As we moved into October for Tuesday track practice this may have been a record turnout for the FMTC as I got to #59 in the book – and despite taking a few photos post-workout, probably missed a few runners. A multitude of on and off track workouts were noted, although most on the track did the pre-marathon Furman 400s (Walter is ready to roll) or mile repeats that were truly accentuated by Phil’s grunting efforts. After a sluggish start and prolonged cooldowns – we were able to get almost everyone by the Volvo (with Dan’s help) for a few announcements and our annual Boston Marathon send-off. I am pleased to say that all 24 Sam Adams Boston Lagers (Nick and Sam split the last one) were consumed along with 12 PBRs and are now in the recycling bin. Additional weekly thanks to Walter (water) and Jason (Choc. milk). A short toast was held to our FMTC teammates – hoping these Boston-bound runners will run well (and smart) on Monday. Georganne (B) and Andrew (B) we missed you guys last night and are hoping for good racing in Beantown (Club records??) by both of you on Monday.
