Just want to say once again "Good Luck, Trevor!" at Ironman Wisconsin tomorrow. It's Trevor's first Ironman. I'll be racing the City of Lakes 25K and Dan Strain will be doing the Square Lake 1/2 Ironman Triathlon. Sounds like good weather for all 3 events. Karen Williamson said that both Tom and Michelle had PRs today at the Lake Geneva Olympic distance tri. Way to go, you guys!!

Help Wanted: For anyone who's done a long run at the RAC on Sunday mornings, you know what a wonderful service Pete Martin has provided to the running community for many, many years. He chalks the course every Saturday, provides maps, collects the $1s and talks us through the route before we get started running. Pete has agreed to continue through the 2010 spring marathon season, but after that will be "retiring". So there is a need to replace him. If you are inclined to do so, or want more info, please contact Lin Gentling.

It's waaaaaay in the future, but it looks like the Rochester Half Marathon will take place August 28, 2010.
