It's October. Guess what that means? Fall racing season is here! Hopefully you're as stoked as we are.
TFC athletes nailed 4, 15k PRs this weekend at the Panther Run. Yes - 4. That's awesome. Way to go Lendall, Malinda, Katie, and Debra!
Almost all our athletes have big goal races coming up. Take a look.

Bass Pro Half Marathon (11/1) : Debra, Malinda, Lendall, Jody, Magda, Nicole, Melissa B., Keshian, Joy (Pacer for 2:00 group)

Not to mention, many of you will also be doing Turkey Trot races, various trail runs, and other local 5k/10k races.
Now, even seasoned athletes get nervous as their big races approach. So, it's not just you that needs to use the restroom 6 times before you get to the start line. It's okay to get nervous, but don't waste all your energy worrying about your race. If you've trained right, the results will show. Sure, we all have bad days, but worrying will get you nowhere.
We want to provide you with a few pre-race tips to help you feel comfortable going into race day.
We are really excited to watch your races this season. So, go nail some PRs.
Thanks to everyone who came to Jamie's this weekend for the Long Run/Brunch. We had a great time, and consumed lots of bacon (which is never a bad thing).
See you on Wednesday for a mile time trial! We will also do some work on foot speed.
