Hi Runners! 

We had 10 at the run on Monday night, and that was the coolest night of the week.....although it would've been hard to convince us of that at the end of the run. I think we were all still pretty hot! Lynn brought son Michael for his first time to run. He needed the mileage for cross country but he wasn't impressed with all the loops on the course. We had 6 at the run on Wednesday night. It was even too hot for Aimee to be out, but she did set out water and said a quick hello. It was already nearing 80 degrees Saturday morning for the run. It's marathon training season so some of our marathoners were out for a long training run. Nothing is gonna stop them. Sunday morning was the annual Meltdown and the weather was perfect for it. Who would've thought we would be saying we were a bit chilly? I mean, I doubt the runners were chilly, but it was overcast and breezy the first 2 races. We got rain on the third race but it could've been so much worse given our recent weather. Most people did all 3 races. Way to go! And thanks to the volunteers who were out there helping. Another successful Energy2Action Meltdown! Next up POG!!!!  

Training:  Monday at Loper at 5:00PM. Wednesday at medical building on Rampart at 5:00PM. Saturday on the circle at 7:30AM. 

Racing:  Saturday is POG in Morristown. I think that's the only race you need to know about ;-) 

Summer Run Challenge!  It's time to sign up. Challenge starts Sunday July 30 and goes to Saturday August 5. Pick your goal. We'll have some giveaways at the weekly training runs. You can earn your magnet if you set a goal and complete it. Theme is "Let's build a campfire!"  

Happy Running!

Mike's Running Tip:  People who work running into a busy schedule are able to run and juggle at the same time.
