2015-02-24: February Week 3 Update

Hello Teammates!
 
We've had an exciting few days this weekend, with our team dinner and a movie on Friday night, and then the Fitness For Vitality 5k / 10k on Sunday. "McFarland USA" was a great movie to inspire us to keep training and to push ourselves at the end of the race - and perfect timing as Run Month of the USAT National Challenge is coming to an end _THIS_SATURDAY_!
 
 
*** USAT National Challenge Update ***
 
Within Run Month, we're ranked 6th based on our running points, and 5th based on total points. There's room for us to move up in both of these categories, so keep up the training this week!
 
With all three months combined, we're still in 7th place in our division, and are very likely to remain there once the challenge is complete.
 
There are a few people that are VERY far behind in logging their miles with the National Challenge, please get in there and make updates. Technically we're now only allowed to add workouts between Feb 10th and today, so it's important to get in and add those earlier workouts before the dates disappear!
 
Gail Rudee and Judith Sentz are still doing GREAT among their age groups! Funny story - out of the top 6 people in the Women 55-59 age group, there are 3 Gails, AND one of them recently contacted our very own Gail Rudee because they are in close competition with one another! Less than 200 points separate the three Gails :-)
 
Within Sound Training, we have 6 people who have accumulated over 1,000 points. I'll save a bunch of fun stats for the end of the week, once the Challenge has completed! Keep up the hard work over the next few days!
