EDITOR'S NOTE: We encourage submissions or topic suggestions from our membership. We need submissions a week before publication so we can edit and format them, and topic suggestions should be made with sufficient notice for research and reporting. Please keep lead time in mind if your idea is pegged to a timely event.

Send your column or idea to Bruce Oakley. We suggest 500-750 words, but take as much or as little space as needed. Perhaps you have a new training plan you'd like to tell everyone about or you raise funds for a worthy cause; perhaps you have a nutritious recipe to share or an injury to discuss; maybe you have a hero to honor. Please share with us.
