Its okay. No need to panic. You can back of the ledge. The perfect season might be lost but there is till hope that the Cougars will have a better record than the Seahawks at the end of the year. But speaking of records, one of our longest serving records came to a close the night the Seahawks opened up the 2014 season. For 26 straight weeks 300+ devote Flying Irish showed up (a record by 10 weeks). It was a sad day two weeks ago (and last week) when that streak ended with only 293 runners showing up. A sad day indeed! Lets turn those fortunes around and finish out the season strong as we love seeing all your faces at each of the runs. There are only 11 more runs left in the season!
As some of you may have saw on our Facebook page, we are going to do the Flying Irish Mosaic again this year. There are two ways to get your photo included in the final mosaic. 1) Have your picture taken at any of the Flying Irish runs over the next few weeks or 2) upload your own picture to this link: http://j.mp/1lVS15p The pictures will only be used for this project and not shared with anyone. We do ask that your photo is PG rated and your face is the prominent feature of picture since we want to see it. No Tinder style selfies! Have them uploaded by Oct 3rd. Let’s make it happen! We’ll also be making the final product available for purchase.
We have a “regular” run this week and then next week, September 26th, is the first ever Flying Irish Zombie Run!! Dress up as a zombie or as a potential survivor and we have a bit of fun on the run plus win some free swag! There are a bunch of other Flying Irish events coming up and you can check those out on the banner to the right or on our website!
See you all Thursday to kick off the last 25% of the 2014 season!!

Study On Running Reducing Anxiety and Depression
Hello! My name is Keely Hope and while most of you know me from running, I am asking you take a few minutes to participate in a research study I’ve created. When I am not running, I am a faculty member in the Psychology Department at Eastern Washington University and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor.
I think that it is important to learn more about how running potentially helps reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. I also want to know how social running affects these issues.
Your participation is completely voluntary.
If you are interested in participating, you will complete click this link that will take you to the surveyhttp://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1790417/Running-BDI-BAI. While completing the survey, you will answer questions about your running habits and take two surveys designed to measure symptoms of anxiety and depression. You will also answer some questions about how you feel while you run and right before you run. This may bring up some unpleasant thoughts or feelings. If that happens while you are taking the survey, you may stop. You may also email me at any time to discuss these feelings you have while you are taking the survey. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions about the study, you can speak to me directly or email me. Thank you for your time.
We love seeing photos of our members. We love seeing photos of our members wearing their Flying Irish shirts even more! Why not encourage that even more and also give our members a chance to win something as well? To that we created the Flying Irish Running Club Photo Contest!
