Hi Folks.

Friday afternoon: Saturday Hill Repeats are a go. We have attending thus far: Tom, Elizabeth, Shirley, Denise, Robert, Paula, TJ, and new person, Janet. Probably a few more will come depending on their holiday weekend plans.

Update regarding WEDNESDAY workouts: After the two sessions today we’ve decided to go back to holding one workout session from 8:15-9:15 AM. Warren said that Wednesdays are in great demand for client workouts and we can handle 12 people in the workout. There will be Warren’s clients working out 7-8 and 9:30-10:15 with him.

September is here and Dipsea, half and full marathons, charity bike rides, TCRS races and the high school XC season has begun. Head coach, Warren Lanier, coach Tom O’Reilly and myself are working with over 30 young people this season which is fun to see. Young and old are eager to get out and enter a variety of events.
