Welcome Emerson Longenecker to FMTC!!

Another FMTC Tuesday is in the books as August moves on —- solid turnout for both AM and PM workouts.  Our trials of miles for fast times this Fall continue. Many on the track tonight ran the challenging 3 x 2K workout. We opted for the 800s in the AM – Sam G was a late arrival and pounded out 5 x 1-mile repeats cruising at an easy sub-5 pace for him. 

A discussion of 10K PRs starting with Tom Luffs’ 30:10 encouraged me to check the club archives and this is what I found – Christopher Myers 30:42 on the track and Samuel Gerstenbacher 31:11 on the road (bridge run).

The road time definitely needs to come down sooner as opposed to later (group 1 – listening?)

Thanks to Walt for providing the much-needed water and on a lighter note just 22/20 PBRs consumed including a couple of double and two take-homes.

Denise, Jay, Adam M… we missed you guys.

New copies of “Once a Runner”  were presented to FMTC runners Bennett and Nate T to savor as a break from their grind of college studies and academia.

Our FMTC Board Meeting is next Thursday, August 25, 2022 – we are open to suggestions, ideas, and recommendations including a Fall running/social event. Please let me or another board member know.
