Congrats to our Inside Outers: Natalie, Susan, Don and Lindsay! A big shout out for Lindsay who knocked off her first half marathon (now back to wedding plans)! Another to Susan for taking her age group in the 10k.

While these four were running around Cary, I was busy getting sunburnt on Oak Island. I wanted to see what barefoot running would be like, so planned to run a quick mile with Shadow. We jogged back a fun 45 minutes later! How relaxing! I highly recommend it, though a salty and sandy bathing suit is not optimal running gear!

Saturday’s Crepe Truck run was a success with folks running anywhere from five to nine miles to earn those fantastic french roll-ups. I took a header at mile 8.5 (don’t drink and run, folks! – i mean water! – if you are tired and clumsy), but only skinned my knee. Everyone else made it back whole and hungry.

Runs this week:

Tuesday: Community Center at 6:00. Bolin to MLK and back how you want!
Wednesday: 7pm Hill Workout @ Merriff Field
Thursday: 6AM run @ Dogwood Acres; 6:30Hill Workout @ Merriff Field
Saturday: 7:30? Route TBA (suggestions welcome)

Did I miss anything?

Tomorrow ‘s run, Bulls on the 4th   Leave a comment

There is some confusion over parking tomorrow. WE ARE MEETING BEHIND ARMADILLO IN THE NOBO LOT. Natalie says we are OK there until FF moves later this summer. We will pass by the parking lot on the way to Crepe Truck if you need to stop to pick up $ or change shirts or whatnot.

I bought 20 tickets for the Bulls game on June 4th and only 11 have committed. Who else wants to come?

Tomorrrow: 8AM Crepe Truck Route(www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/34481358/): Start at NoBo lot (behind Armadillo). You will have to walk back to your car (sorry). Long version (8.2): bike path to columbia, down mlk to hillsborough, back via CC and Gimghoul to ridge and Manning, through hospitals, up columbia to Rosemary to Maiin st. to weaver st. to main and up to Joe’s Bait and Tackle. Sloboers, just stay on cameron to bourndary and take franklin/main to Joe’s. 5-6 milers: drop gimghoul and take south to columbia from CC (instad of ridge and manning). Check out the crepe truck online: http://www.parlezvouscrepe.com/.

Sunday: Inside Out Half & 10k in Cary (www.ncroadrunners.org/IOClassic/index2.html) Who’s up for running with Lindsay, Don & Natalie?
