Happy Monday, runners! I hope you took advantage of the cooler weather and got some run time in before your weekend got too busy!
1) RACE REPORTS
***from Roxana Conroy
I ran a 5k yesterday here in Ft. Payne. The run was to raise money for Whitney Smith who has plans to serve in Sudan through her church ministry. I do not know all the details but i have a website if anyone wants to check it out.

1) Race Report. Jennifer and I ran the Inaugural Georgia Jewel this past weekend, September 24. There was a 100 mile, a 50 mile, and a 35 mile race. Jen and I ran the 50 mile. She was the second woman overall, and I was the 9th male overall. As usual, we ran the entire race together, and we were happy with our performances. It is a rough course on the feet--lots of rocky and technical terrain, as well as some hills--but it was also pretty, and the volunteers were awesome. We also saw Wayne running the 35m, and it looked like he was doing well. I look forward to hearing how he did!
2) Trail Training Run. Any trail runners interested in getting some miles in the weekend of October 8-9? Jen & I will be organizing a run for anyone that wants to join us for any distance. We're running the Pinhoti 100 course, throughout the day and night, hoping to cover about 67 miles total. Important: no one is expected to go the entire way if they don't want to! Anyone who wants to come out for 5 or 10 miles, please do, as we'd love the company. Let me know and we'll coordinate: firstname.lastname@example.org.

TRI SOCIAL - NOT just for triathletes! If you've ever even had an inkling to do a multi-sport event (individually or on a team) - come on over!
Coming up this Sunday, October 9 at 5 p.m. at our cabin. We've got about 20 signed up so far, but would love to have loads more. We need to do a little planning for next year (so bring your ideas) and a lot of socializing. We’ll provide the main dish, but we need you to bring your own drinks and a dish to share (appetizer, salad, veggie, or dessert).
PLEASE plan to come, and please let me know so I have enough food.
Let me know if you need a map.
***Don't forget to log your September miles for the 1200-Mile Club by emailing Jim Parham at email@example.com.
Have a great week, runners!
