A windy but progressively warmer Tuesday at the F&M track. Our AM group got things started at 8 with Walt and Dan running some intense modified Yasso’s in his prep for Burlington Marathon in 2 weeks. Will and I took Chris out of his comfort zone of sub-7 for our intervals. Many last evening did the longer (harder) Furman workout. Nick and Adam H (+ supportive spouse Becca) were observed running some fast intervals while both maintaining their “Lagat-like” running form. Scott and Jeremy earned some easy Tuesday evening miles after Sunday’s 2:53 easy BQ effort at the trail marathon in York.
Major kudos to 2 runners who continue to represent our club in a stellar fashion – Chris Myers (14:44 @ 5000) and Sam Gerstenbacher (3:47 @1500) for PR performances Monday evening (late!) at the Swarthmore Last Chance Meet.
Starting May 28th Jason Smoker has offered to take over Tuesday evening water cooler duties.
PBR consumption was 28/34 (No AM drinking but coffee and chocolate milk).
Jay and I will be doing some alternating PBR cooler duties through the Summer and promise to NOT miss any Tuesdays. We will continue with AM workouts Tuesday but may move the time to 7 or 7:30 in June.
We are working on the details (many) of our first official FMTC-sponsored race (“Night of Miles”) to be held on July 14th. Hoping many of you will participate or serve as volunteers. Finally, Katie and a group of FMTC members are heading to Ireland this AM where she will be repping FMTC at the Seven Sister Skyline 30K trail race this weekend in Donegal, Ireland.
