You can smell it, I can smell it, and we're all getting the feels for the #fallracingszn.  Gone is the hard training of summer. The sun is officially relegated to a #beta with its shorter days and questionable temperature.  And #PSLs are back in a big way.  A witty man once said "Legends are born in July, but they're remembered in September".

We've got big races on the docket folks, but first make sure to be a hero and volunteer for Pacer's waterstops and DCXC.  Get. @. Sean O.

This weekend, budding superstar Gina McNamara makes her low-key debut in the Parks Half [marathon]. Speaking of the half, Sean and multi-Boston harrier Chris Bain will be looking to open #fallracingszn in a big way. Look for Bain to keep it steady and strong, unlike that snowflake, the Sun. And sources say Sean plans to "put one foot in front of the other" and see how it shakes out.  Bold strategy, bolder mindset but they don't call him the peoples' runner for nothin'.

The Reich duo [Stew & Steph], taking the summer harvest to the Market [Street Mile] Saturday and a low-key 5k in Columbia on Sunday.  The mile sets up well for the couple; fast pace and even faster post-race boomerang instastories.  Be sure to mash that refresh button Saturday and Sunday.

Finally, Kyle W will be snowshoeing back home in Canada, well as close as you can get without technically being in Canada.  He'll be prepping for harsh winter-like conditions at his college alumni race somewhere near a lake.  But you know what they say about the weather in Minnesota folks? If you don't like it, wait 5 min.

That's it for now.  Be on the lookout for more weekend previews later this month.
