Want to know where you're ranked by marathon count, who's birthdays are coming up, ages our members finished the states, and all kinds of demographics? We have a feature to the club web site called Demographics. Click on Membership on the drop down menu. This is an ongoing project and we add functions to it occasionally. Play with it at your leisure.  Send us updates to your marathon count, states completed, location where you completed the states, etc. Updates to our database are done nearly daily. If you haven't done so, please send us a digital photo to add to the membership list.  It helps members recognize each other at the races.   .jpg works best.

I’d like your help in promoting my autobiography, Running through My Mind: Confessions of an Every Day Runner.   After 105,000+ miles and (literally) running every day for over 28 years, I think I’ve managed to compile the complete book of running.  From Peachtree to Boston to a ‘run across Georgia’ to 24-hour endurance runs to Badwater to Western States—I’ve managed to taste a little bit of everything running has to offer in my quest to cover the spectrum in my running career (which is still going strong, by the way).  I would appreciate it if you would forward this to the members of your running club as well as anyone else you believe might be interested or in need of a little motivation, a little inspiration, and a whole lot of entertainment.  Thanks in advance for your support.  -Scott Ludwig  Available now on www.amazon.com  100% of author royalties will be donated to the American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association in memory of the author's parents.
