Thursday 8/21/08-Tyler State Park- many missing de to vacations etc. Nonetheless the team split up into groups and ran between 45 (ladies) and 50 (dudes) followed by a mile or so of the ‘Devils square Dance’. Great weather- about 70 and dry as a bone. Coach Wayton and Siegel braved the hills with their bikes
Wednesday 8/20/08- long run- perfect weather alowed the Pirates to go a hair longer than planned- top guys hit about 14 (95), Kellner hit about 13.4. Everyone else followed suit behind- great day- kids looking very very strong.

Monday 8/18/08- Kids met at the Washington St. lot for either a group run (those from camp) or a steady state 5 miler. Everyone looked swell.

Coach Wayton handed out the hot new custom East Coast Chopper PXC decals….they’re SO HOT!!!
