Blazing Schedule   Leave a comment

A belated blazing thanksgiving to everyone!

The Gallop and Gorge was great, despite the chill and lack of official times. I don’t recommend running when you already have the chills, I spent the next thirty six hours with chills and a fever. Oops! So I missed everyone last week. I am ready to hit the road again tomorrow.

Any plans for post-NoBo tomorrow? Quick run or dinner? Who’s up for a Thursday Firefly?

Here’s a proposed schedule:

11/30: NoBo @ 6. Anyone up for another 3 or dinner

12/2: Firefly! It has been too long. Let’s break out those headlamps. 6:30 or 7 at Pumpkin?

12/4: NoBo @ 8AM. Anyone up for a post NoBo run and/or breakfast?

12/5: Anyone up for a 10:30 trail run?

12/7: NoBo @ 6 PM: quick 3 more or dinner?

12/9: Firefly @ 7:00?

12/11: Reindeer Romp for NoBo mentors.

12/12: Anyone up for a 10:30 trail run?

12/14: 6PM run: Where and how long? 5 miles?

12/16: Firefly @ 7:00?

11/23: NoBo @ 6 then Blue Ridge Relay (BRR) meeting (henceforth known as the Lost Soles). Any Found Soles going for a post-NoBo run @ 7?

11/25: Gallop & Gorge @ 8 AM (meet at 7:30 at the FF tent?). There is also a Trail Goddess at the same time.

11/27: NoBo @ 8AM. Anyone up for a post NoBo run and/or breakfast?

11/28: Anyone up for a trail run?

11/30: NoBo @ 6. Anyone up for another 3, then dinner

12/2: Firefly! It has been too long. Let’s break out those headlamps. 6:30 or 7 at Pumpkin?

PS Anyone know a pet sitter who would not mind house sitting Shadow at Christmas?

Update, Schedule & Race Agenda   Leave a comment

What a weekend! Thanks to you all for helping me get there. Crossing that finish line is one of the proudest moment of my life. I never would have done it without the support of such a wonderful community.

On to business! The OBXers will likely be limiting their miles this week. I plan to run NoBo tonight (< 3 miles). I would love to Firefly on Thursday, but am over-booked. I would not mind (as of right now) doing a couple extra miles after NoBo on Saturday. Next week is the Gallop and Gorge, so I am not sure who will be up for extra miles next Tuesday. Let me know what you all are thinking.

Race Agenda:

  • 11/25 Gallop and Gorge 8k
  • 12/11 Thunder Road Half & Full (Charlotte)
  • 12/11 Reindeer Romp 5k (NoBo)
  • 1/15 Little River 7k & 10 miles
  • 2/5 Uwharrie 8, 20 & 40 mile trail
  • 2/19 Myrtle Beach Full & Half
  • 3/20 Tobacoo Road (Cary) Full & Half
  • 4/9 Tar Heel 10 miler & FF4

Who is up for what? I am definitely doing Gallop & Gorge and Tar Heel 10. I would like to do at least one more in between.

Schedule through OBX   Leave a comment

Thursday (11/4): Anyone up for a 7PM Firefly at Pumpkin.

Saturday (11/6): Pre-NoBo 3-miler. Meet at 7:10 behind Armadillo. We will run the NoBo route. Doing this again at NoBo makes for a bit less than a 6 mile day.

Sunday (11/7): Anyone up for a short trail run or walk?

Tuesday (11/9): NoBo @ 6. Short distance post-NoBo run ~ 7? just a couple of mils?

Thursday (11/11): Firefly @ 7? I will be up for a loop.

Saturday (11/13): NoBo @ 8. Those 3 miles will be enough for me. Non-ObXers can run before or after (let me know if you need a route).

Sunday (11/14): OBX – 13.1 miles. Nuff said.
