Blazing in the New Year   Leave a comment

Thanks to SB, we missed some serious traffic and parking jams yesterday and got in a nice run from the community center. Janet has us doing a nice Hill workout going up Roosevelt and back down Franklin. Someone remind me not to swim laps just before running. Whew!

  • Tomorrow AM we have a 9AM (not 9:30) run in Briar Chapel. Anyone mind giving Shadow and me a lift?
  • Sunday AM: Trail blazing from Bunce Manor – time TBA
  • Monday: holiday afternoon trail run anyone? Maybe a Little River preview if it is not too far?
  • Tuesday: Campus run from FF at 6:30?
  • Thursday: STADIUM STEPS finally! at 6:30

SB’s b-ball warning got me to check the unc b-ball calendar. there are only two more conflicts with our Tu/Th evening routine (1/10 and 1/26). I will make both of those a community center run (unless someone has an better alternative!). Thanks, Slimey!

hope to see you all over this New Year’s weekend. Either way, happy New Year!!!

Final Soles Runs in 2011   Leave a comment

There are just a few days left in 2011. Who’s up for getting few more miles in before 2012? These are my suggestions:

  • Thursday: Stadium Steps @ Kenan @ 6:30pm
  • Saturday: 9AM trails at Briar Chapel

A New Year’s run will likely happen too!

Stadium Run, Christmas Eve run & using your iphone with gloves.   Leave a comment

  • Tonight: Stadium Run – meet at Kenan at 6:30. (Domo has not confirmed that the stadium is open so Plan B will be Laurel Hill. We had better hope its open!)
  • Saturday: Christmas Eve run @ 9:30 @ Seawall School. Park by the picnic tables and bring food.
  • Tuesday (27th): 6:30 @ FF for a campus run

Geek Note: I hate having to take off my gloves to use my iPhone. After a little digging, I found "Making A Glove Work With A Touch Screen". I bought some of that thread and will trade some for use of (and maybe help with) a sewing needle. I got 15 feet for $5, so will have plenty to spare if anyone wants any.

Run reminder & Methane flaring   Leave a comment

  • Tonight @ 6:30 @ FF for a campus run.
  • Thursday: What about a holiday stadium run @ Kenan?
  • Saturday: Inaugural Run-n-Eat (not the other way ’round!!!) @ Seawall School Picnic Tables

Christelle wanted to bring this to everyone’s attention. More Carloina North intrusions!

"Greener in one way, but we may have a bunch a pipelines and generator just next to the trails." Christelle

Campus Updates | Methane flaring begins at county landfill | The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill | The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Source: unc.edu

"In the second phase of the project, UNC will pipe the landfill gas to a 1,000-kilowatt power generation system. The original plan was to place the generator on Homestead Road, near the Duke Energy substation, but the University has received permits from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that will allow the generator to be located on the Carolina North campus and for the landfill gas pipeline to extend within the new utility corridor on Carolina North by August 2012."
