A cold and rather windy Tuesday night on our “home track” but not enough to deter 40 or so for track practice. Most of us did the 1000m repeats but a few took on the long “Art 8K workout” ladder. The group 1 guys were hitting some shorter faster intervals and I think Scott is now influenza-cured. The weather limited PBR consumption to about 18/30 but they will not go to waste. Hoping the Fridge crew did not make it too late of a night with no negative impact on their respective Boston training schedules. Welcome back, Amos and Elam. I may have missed a few of you last evening with quick departures post-workout, so let me know and I will add you to the book.
There will be some serious racing this weekend with at least four of our FMTC members racing the iconic “Cherry Blossom 10-miler” in D.C. (*Georganne sub-60?/ Mimi AG top 3 ?) and Sam G will be hitting the track for 5000m at Princeton hoping for 14:20 or better (CR is 14:25). Remember to email weekend race times to Sarah and me. Meg and Denise – great racing at Garden Spot but you look like you are having too much fun… but so do Peter, Leo, and I in 2010 on the 26.2 course – until the wind did 2 of us in!
If you have invited NEW runners to join us at the track (and they decide to stay) please encourage dues submission to Jeremy and I will add them to our list-serve. -Jeff
