Have a Blazing Holiday Weekend   Leave a comment

Christelle, Mia, Wendy, Carolyn, Oscar and I braved a chilly evening to run a couple of loops of Pumpkin (kudos to Carolyn and Oscar for doing an extra one) last night! Natalie and her sister joined us at Tyler’s for some Milk Chocolate Stout and other goodies!

I won’t be able to make a weekend run, but someone else can step up and plan one to burn off some christmas calories! If not, see you all next Tuesday at 6 behind Armadillo!

I would like to echo Susan’s holiday wishes, but could not be so eloquent. Let me know say thanks to you all for making the Soles so much fun. Happy Holidays!

Thanks to Christeelle, Aimee, Rob, Sarah, Jess, Tracey, Roger, Wendy, Lynn, Carolyn, Natalie & Oscar for coming out last night for our campus 4 miler. Congrts to Sarah, Aimee and Wendy for kicking it up a notch from NoBo!

Tomorrow night: Firefly: 6pm @ Pumpkin (2 loops or just 1), Carrboro Tyler’s afterward! Meet at the Municipal Drive Lot (going north on MLK from Estes, first left onto Municipal and first right onto gravel road to lot at end). Bring some light!

Let’s celebrate a few cold miles with some beer and fries afterward. If you can’t make the run (e.g. Nat), meet us 7:15ish at Tyler’s on Main St. in Carrboro.

Weekend Running Plans   Leave a comment

On Saturday, I think we should meet at community center on s. estes (park in univ. mall if there are no spots) at 11 AM and run Bolin Creek – MLK – Franklin for four miles. The MLK hill is very long and tough, so new Soles should expect to walk it! For an extra two, just look the hospital. Sound good? The weather won’t be great, but should not be too bad either.

On Sunday, I was originally thinking of a 10:30 trail run from CHHS. The TGs have suggested a trail out in Chatham County. Anyone up for exploring?
