Despite a weekend/Monday of heavy racing, great attendance last evening for Track practice with temperatures more running friendly, we are unfortunately losing our daylight. All BOSTON runners were given Tuesday exemptions although Dan with medal #11 (see instagram photo) and Walter were present and not holding their quads. Many of us ran the 16 x 200/200s while others from group 1 ran mile repeats – most impressive per my STRAVA viewing was Drew’s 4 x 3200m with an average pace of 5:11! Also great to see Sam and Chris (youngest in the FMTC) pushing each other along. I returned 8 PBRs, so more for next week. Thanks again to Jason for the gallon of chocolate milk which was consumed by numerous runners and will continue to be a weekly stable. One special Flying Dog wheat beer to Brandi for her outstanding racing at the Broad Street 10-miler this past weekend, going 3 minutes under her time goal. We continue to welcome new members to the club – with 3 in attendance last evening.

Quote of the week: “When you focus on the past, that’s your ego… And when I focus on the future it’s my pride… And I like to focus in the moment, in the present… that’s humility. That’s being humble.” -Giannis Antetokounmpo
