Probably our best or nearly best Tuesday this year for track workouts. Out A.M. group got things off to a solid start (see photo!) with the 12 x 400s and were followed on the track by Hodge and Brenner doing 300s. Tom Luff hammered out the Furman workout with a solid pace (racing soon?) and Zach is getting his speed back based on a 2:31 – 800m as he prepares to return to the Summer racing circuit. Scott, Jeremy and perhaps a few others ran my least favorite 1Ks – an impressive 8 in total with progression down to 3:18.
Jay gave me a list of those of you who he saw or remembered seeing last night. Strava also was used as a backup, a few may still be missed – but at least you know you were there. So please let me know and I will add your name to the attendance book. Per Dan (“crappy workout”) two of our old members (Bill Doherty and Leo Lutz) made a surprise appearance at the F and M Track – hope they had a beer.
Per Jay’s count, 27/30 PBRs were consumed – good work by ALL! Sadly, two of our members will soon be leaving Lancaster, so I am hoping we can have a short Tuesday night farewell (May 31st) before Justin heads to Oregon and Georganne to Phoenixville with their families for a new life phase. As we head into summer with more traveling likely (see check-in list below) TAKE your singlet and find a race to rep the club! -Jeff
