Will anybody be able to catch Diane again? I know there are quite a few 100s and multi-day events coming up so it could happen. Unless Diane signs up for them too! We hope everyone has an awesome fall racing season.

Now for a little biz… This month’s random drawing winner is RIF #277 Donna England! 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 and it’s fun to see the race miles add up. :)
