Chargers Alumni & Staff Join Jason Verrett for Bolt to the Q - Hayley Elwood
The intense heat took a much needed respite Sunday morning as over 3,000 Chargers fans flocked to Qualcomm Stadium to participate in the 6th annual Kaiser Permanente Bolt to the Q which proceeds benefited the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego.  Racers began their journey in the Qualcomm parking lot and finished on the field the team plays on during the season. "I’m not running today, but this race is so unique because you get to finish in the stadium at the 50-yard line," said General Manager Tom Telesco.  "I think the fact that it’s a race with over 3,000 people who are all Chargers fans wearing lightning bolts and Chargers gear is great to see."

In Melvin Gordon, Adrian Peterson has found a challenger and a protege - Ben Goessling
"It's been really intense -- I'm not going to lie to you -- with everything we do, from the warm-up to the finish," Gordon said. "If you know Adrian, you know everything he does is balls to the wall. Everyone's trying to compete with him. He's out here, he's going his hardest with everything, and Coop's on him, just like he's on everyone else. It's been intense, but it's good for us."
