CLUB MEETING – TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5

We normally meet at Partner’s Pizza this month, but because we have a special guest speaker, we are holding the meeting at the Peachtree Hotel and Conference Center, formerly known as the Wyndham – our usual meeting place.  We will hold our October meeting at Partner’s.
Our guest speaker will be none other than Jeff Galloway.  Jeff Galloway is an American Olympian and the author of Galloway’s Book on Running.  A lifetime runner, Galloway was an All-American collegiate athlete and a member of the 1972 US Olympic Team in the 10,000 meters. He remains a competitive athlete, continuing through a successful masters running career. He is the Chief Executive Officer of Galloway Productions, which conducts a broad range of training programs and events yearly; he also owns two running specialty stores. He has written several books on training and writes a monthly column for Runner’s World magazine.

DRAGON BOAT RACES – SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23

We need 12 people for a team.  Enjoy the thrill of dragon boat races on Lake McIntosh and enjoy a taste of culture, food, and art from around the world.
