Little River Trail Run (1/15/2011)   Leave a comment

Who is up for the Little River Trail Run ($30 – 1/15/2011 – http://www.trailheads.org/lrtr/)? There is a 7k and a 10 miler.

Anyone up for a Blazing Soles team for the 10 miler?

Team Competition. New for 2011! There is an optional team competition for 10 mile runners. Teams consist of four runners each; runners who want to take part in the team competition must specify a team name when they register on the SportOften website. There will be two team divisions, each based on the total ages (on race day) of team members. For teams in the Open Division, the participants’ ages must sum to at least 120. For teams in the Masters’ Division, the participants’ ages must sum to at least 160. Teams may achieve these sums in any way they like ­ two ten year olds and two seventy year olds gets your team into the Master’s division. Then again, so does four forty year olds. Teams may include any combination of men and women (all male, mixed, all female). A prize will be awarded to the fastest team ­ based on the team’s total finishing time ­ in each of the two divisions.

Route Tonight   Leave a comment

I have a 5.6 mile route for tonight: FF-Greensboro-Hillsborough-Fayetsville-Carol-Hillsborough-Main-FF (http://www.mapmyrun.com/route/us/nc/carrboro/345128749797296719). Does anyone need a shorter route?

Who is up for a Firefly on Thursday?

I will miss NoBo tomorrow, but hopefully make the run after. Then I will be gone for the weekend and back for NoBo and the run on the 19th.

Here is a schedule and routes for the next week (same as last week). Feel free to mix them up.

Schedule through 10/17   Leave a comment

Here is the mildly updated schedule through Mia’s birthday (10/17). The main thing is that I think we need to push the post-NoBo runs back 15 minutes until NoBo can digest its gigantic size and can be done in an hour. So for the next couple of weeks, I think the Tuesday run should start @ 7:15 and the Saturday late run @ 9:15. We can reassess this as NoBo progresses.

Both runs tomorrow (6 & 9:15) are well-subscribed. Who’s up for Sunday Outer Burn @ 4? Anyone want to give me & his majesty a lift? I will miss Tues-Sun next week. (If I can get out of a work function early on Tuesday, I might make the 7:15 run, but not NoBo).

Next week I will plan some routes for the 19th and 23rd that go up Greensboro. Any ideas?

Saturday 10/9 8 AM: NoBo (1.5 mile) & 6 AM or 9:15 AM @ FF:

Sunday 10/10: Trail Walk – Inner & Outer Berns @ Unity – time TBA

Tuesday 10/12: 6:00 NoBo (1 mile) & 7:15
@ Bike Path (after NoBo): Routes (FF to Estes to Umstead to MLK and then split) – Feel free to run these backwards. Bring a headlamp, reflective gear and layer!

Thursday 10/14: Firefly 7:00 @ Pumpkin – Bring a head lamp. 2.2-4.4 miles (1 loop or 2)

Saturday 10/16 8 AM: NoBo (1.75 mile) & 6AM @ FF (before NoBo) or 9:15AM @ FF (after NoBo): Routes (variations on FF-Cameron-Franklin-Bolin Creek-MLK-FF)

Sunday 10/17 4PM: Trail Walk – Inner & Outer Berns @ Unity

Schedule through 10/16   Leave a comment

Despite the chaos, NoBo was fun last night! It ran late, so the Soles did not get going until a chilly 7:15. I think we all had good runs though!

1. Who’s going to Firefly tomorrow?

2. Bob, how’s the knee? We missed you last night. It was a pleasure to meet your daughter!

3.The mini-cards are from Moo.com and only cost around $15 for the bunch. When we get Bob’s logo, we can design a better card.

4. Anyone want to turn my mapmyrun routes into turn-by-turn handouts?l

Here is the schedule for the next two weeks. I will miss this Thursday, next Tuesday and Saturday the 16th. As always, mutinies welcome.

Thursday
Firefly @ Pumpkin (Municipal) 730?: Bring headlamps and layer!

Saturday 6AM @ FF (before NoBo) or 9AM @ FF (after NoBo): Routes (variations on FF-Cameron-Franklin-Bolin Creek-MLK-FF)

Tuesday 7:15PM @ Bike Path (after NoBo): Routes (FF to Estes to Umstead to MLK and then split) – Feel free to run these backwards. Bring a headlamp, reflective gear and layer!

Meeting Point Tonight: Armadillo Cafe Parking Lot   Leave a comment

As NoBo is meeting in the parking lot behind the Armadillo Cafe (and so many of us will be there), our run will start there instead of at the store.

So, if you get to the store at 7 and no one is outside, cross the street and head to the parking lot!

P.S. I won’t make it to the Firefly Thursday. So it can be earlier than 7:30. We can discuss tonight.
