Wow, what a turnout.  Was it the weather?  Temps were
in the 70s and rising, with lots of sunshine and no wind.

We had a total of 152 complete the Nielson 2 Mile Challenge
in August.  This smashed our previous high of 122, which
was set in August of last year.

There were many middle and high school runners from
TCA and other schools that were using today's event as
a qualifier for their upcoming cross country season.         

Also running today was Olympian Eli Bremer.  Eli is leaving
for Beijing on August 3rd to compete in the pentathlon.
He looks to be ready, as he ran today's 2-mile course
in 10:45.  Good luck, Eli!

This month's most improved runner was Aaron Gohlke.  He was
2:48 under his handicap, thus it's obvious that he's been
putting in some good training.

We were short one of our normal volunteers, as Phil Foster
was off on a cruise.  With the large crowd, we did need extra
help, and several people stepped right in and helped.  This includes
Gabe Santa Maria, Tom Santa Maria, Glen Dody and John O'Neill.

See you all in September.  Maybe we'll get some rain by then.
