Thursday Time Change, Dozen Donuts, Evolution, etc.   Leave a comment

Tomorrow we will run at 7pm from Foster’s. Anyone want to eat at Flying B. afterward? Let’s go easy and run Bolin Creek, Estes, Franklin, MLK? Should be 4ish miles.

[I may have a fun BRR preview run next Thursday….]

Ty Fenton, fellow BRRer and Serena’s son, is one of the organizers of the inaugural Dozen Doughnut Dash at UNC on October 1st. Can the Soles represent? It is the day before the Carrboro 10k, but it’s only 4 miles!!!

Run Schedule 8/22   Leave a comment

Mia is fundraising for our BRR teams so we can give some scholarships to needy students. The run should total at least $225 per runner, so any help would be greatly appreciated. $ goes to Nana (our scholarship committee)!

BRR is 17 days away, so we will start thinking about how to evolve the Blazing Soles routes. Maybe some more trail running and fireflies. Ideas welcome!

I can’t believe we are a mere three weeks away! Time to run carefully, maintaining more than training. Thanks to Slimeball and Riceball, we had a very productive meeting Friday with lots of good eating.

We could use 1 or 2 more subs in the 8-9 minute mile range. Any suggestions?

Any questions, concerns, thoughts?

With 4 weeks to go, our two BRR teams are hoping to raise some scholarship money for our student (and otherwise impoverished) runners. Anyone who donates a few $$ will have their names written on our vans for the run. (The more $, the larger the print!) It looks like BRR will cost about $250 per runner, so every penny helps. You can give donations to Nana, Christelle or me. Corporate donations (hint, hint, Fleet Feet 🙂 ) would be appreciated! So would t-shirts!
