July was another big month for at least 2 of our RIFers that I know of…who ran a little 500K race across TN…so the standings could change next month! I hope John and George did some racing in July or they are going to be caught!

This month’s random drawing winner is RIF #72 Natalie Torres! We will be sending her a Gone For A Run sign. Don’t forget to submit your points/monthly miles next month for a chance to win! Anyone who submits races or miles or even to say they didn’t race/run because life got in the way is eligible for the drawing. We just want to hear what everyone is up to! We are nosy that way. ;)

Second place went to another female, Karen Plucinski, with a time of 7:00:44.

A dude finally placed in third with Pete Kostenlnick (7:16:51).
