RUNNER TIP OF THE MONTH!   ...Are you as frustrated as I am with the PD not mentioning ANYTHING about our sport of Cross Country during the prep Fall All-League Selections?   Here's a great use for that newspaper to help dry out your shoes; just stuff as much newspaper as you can in your soaking wet shoes and wah-lah!   ...12 hours later, your shoes will be dry!

...By the way, I would recommend everyone should be checking out Sunday Speed Sessions every Sunday ~10AM with Steve Palladino.   Please note, this is a club and NOT attached to MCHS, here's a LINK to the Heart & Sole Speed and Endurance Club Facebook page; check it out, there are quite a few people that have been going to local All-Comer Meets these past few weeks and getting PRs (wow, already!?)

...Next post I'll highlight sign-ups for Tahoe Running Camp; we only have 20 sign-ups so far; seems like a lot of procrastination out there!   ...YOU better sign up before it fills-up!   LINK to 2016 Tahoe Running Camp Flyer July 22-July 27.    5 day Fee for Campers = $150 / Alumni only $90   Food catered by Bruno's on 4th!  http://www.brunosonfourth.com/
