Running Into Uwharie Week   Leave a comment

Who’s ready to scramble up and down some mountains? It’s Uwharie week! Let’s get excited! Saturday’s hilly Whitfield run was good prep. Thanks, Janet, for suggesting the course!

[If you are running late, call me on my cell, 442.8318! I am almost always have it on me.]

Julie’s daughter, Lindsay (who joined us last Thursday for the Eastwood Lake Loop), is heading back to Italy soon. So we are doing an early-ish run (6:00) on Tuesday, so se can head over to the Red Bowl in U-Mall for dinner (about 7:15 I would guess).

Anyone want to organize a run for Thursday/Saturday for sane (i.e. non-Uwharie) runners? Substitute mentor for me for the Beginner 4 Miler (B4M) mostly run group on Saturday @ 8am?

Monday: Soggy Soles ~ 5 (CC)

Tuesday: Community Center Run @ 6 (Red Bowl w/ Lindsay Bunce to follow @ 7:15)
Wednesday: Soggy Soles ~ 5 (CC)
Thursday: Non-Uwharie run?
Friday: off to Uwharie!
Saturday: Non-Uwharie run? Anyone want to mentor w/ FF @ 8?

Sunday: Soggy Soles ~ 5:30 (HAC)

Update: Running out of January   Leave a comment

Are we up for an Eastwood Lake loop in the dark tonight? I just it would be nice to bring that route back in the rotation for some variety, but i am always open to suggestion. Is 6 good or 6:30 better?

I would like to bump Saturday to 9:30 and see if I can get a ride to the fire station from FF ~9ish. How ’bout the crepe truck after? it is in the Glass Half Full lot in Carrboro on Saturdays now (http://www.parlezvouscrepe.com/events.php). or is that too far?

Updated Soles Schedule:
Thursday: Eastwood Lake Loop @HomeTeam @6?
Friday: Soggy Sole Swim @CC ~5
Saturday: Duke Forest run @9:30am @ Fire Station on Whitfield Road (shoulder parking)
Sunday: Soggy Sole Swim @HAC ~5:30
Tuesday: Track workout @ 7 @ McDougle.
Thursday: Uwharie rest day – non-Uhwarie FF run @ 6:30?

Saturday (2/4): Uhwarie Insanity!!! Non-uhwarie run?

PS J. Edgar (the Hoover biopic) is at the Varsity this weekend. Anyone interested in going Saturday @ 9:30?

PPS Tracey is 9 years tardy on getting a certain medical screening procedure. Nana suggests a blazing intervention, so let’s get interventin’!

What a great rainy run on Saturday! SB did an AMAZING job (everyone did, really) making what could have been a miserable slog into a really fun run. Metrritt’s might just have earned a place on the Soles’ gastronomic rotation.

How does this schedule look?

Monday: Soggy Sole Swim @CC ~5
Tuesday: Community Center Run @ 6? (is NoBo starting that day?)
Wednesday: Soggy Sole Swim @CC ~5
Thursday: Eastwood Lake Loop @HomeTeam @6?

Friday: Soggy Sole Swim @CC ~5
Saturday: Duke Forest run @9am @ Fire St. on Whitfield Road (shoulder parking)
Sunday: Soggy Sole Swim @HAC ~5:30

Also, thanks to all for welcoming my mom this past week! I may be AWOL at a run or two before she heads back north on Saturday.

12 Days to Uwharie!!!!!

Running this week 1/15   Leave a comment

What a beautiful winter morning yesterday for ten trail miles! Gayle, Emily, Deb, Rob, Lauren, Tracey, Mary, Nancy, Peter, Sue and I (who did i forget?) rocked the trails to earn ourselves some Trailhead tomato soup and some Morelli Magic hot chocolate. Special Kudos to Deb for knocking out her first trail race and to Nana for organizing a great pre-race carboload and cheering us on this morning!

With my mom coming in town for the next twp weeks, I am not sure when I will be able to run, but Uwharie is right around the corner, so let’s put out some times to lace up and get ready. Any suggestions for Tu/Th?

Sunday: Soggy Swim @ 5:30 (HAC)

Monday: AM easy run anyone? it’s a holiday!
Tuesday: TBA
Wednesday: Soggy Swim ~ 5 (CC)
Thursday: TBA
Friday: Soggy Swim ~ 5 (CC)
Saturday: Botanical Gardens technical trail hill repeats 9AM – Carolina Cafe to follow.

Sunday: 3pm longish run @ Unity (park at CHHS) Lake Loop + Burn, followed by soggy Swim

There are about 15 weeks until Owl’s Roost. It’s time to take stock, make plans and get training!
