Super Stud athletes:

This week will be short and sweet....

You guys killed it this last weekend.  I'm not sure there was a single athlete that didn't improve this week in the race.  Wow!!  A lot of victories we'll discuss at practice, but you guys are incredible, you're surpassing my goals and hopefully you are blowing yourself away with how much you are accomplishing.

A couple keys this week: first we need your lapathon money!!! Parents and kids, please remember to bring it this week.  Alan is threatening to send Guido to collect...  he's not a nice guy...  Second, this Saturday is the Magic Mountain Man triathlon and 5k.  I want to see everyone out there for this flat, fast 5k right in our own backyard.  The finishline
should be covered with people cheering you on so it will be awesome. Plus you'll get to cheer on Kirk Nelson the pro triathlete that will give us our run clinic next week.

Keep up the hard work, this week we'll be taking it a little easier Monday and Tuesday so really focus on recovery.

Did I tell you guys how proud I am of you!!!

Lap-a-thon Funds Deadline October 6, 2009
Our lap-a-thon was held on September 15, at Saugus High School on the Track, This is our primary fund raiser event, This fund raiser helps us keep our price low, allows us to offer scholarships, and assist our athletes in national competition.
We ask every family to seek pledges either by flat rate or a per lap donation. The athletes run 1 hour, later they return to their donors and collect their pledges to turn in by the dead line.  
We will award a grand prize of Disneyland park hopper tickets to the athlete who raises the most funds. Every athlete who raises $40.00 will also win a prize.   
The deadline to be eligible for the grand prize is October 6th. Athletes who raise $40.00 or more will still be eligible to win a lap-a-thon prize even if they turn in the funds after October 6th.
