Thursday Newton Clinic and Run + Saturday options: Philosopher’s Way Course Tours: Saturday, 3/31/12   Leave a comment

What amazing running weather last night! I think we all rocked it. And our walking team is growing with Sole Maman here and Jim joining!

Reminder: Newton Clinic at FF tomorrow @ 6 (RSVP here: http://www.fleetfeetcarrboro.com/community/newton-natural-form-running-clinic/rsvp-for-newton-clinic). Then we will run after. Who’s in for the run?

It looks like there are three options for running on Saturday ( and one for Sunday AM, too, possibly):
– New member Mitzi is looking for a 7ish run
– SlimEy thinks the 8:30 PTWR preview is an option (see below)

– 9am run (now Johnston Mill – not Briar Chapel).

With a new layer of that godawful mulch from hell at Briar Chapel, we are moving the 9am run to Johnston Mill.

Marching along! (Run Schedule)   Leave a comment


Thanks to the SlimEy and the Karing Soles for raising $$ for the UNC Kidney Center on Saturday. Not only was it fun to hang out with the gang at the race and at Merritt’s after, I PR’ed despite being sick!

On a personal note, I owe R’n’R many thanks for organizing her sorority’s local chapters and alumnae groups to support VisionWalk this year. The Duke chapter hosted me at the weekly meeting last night and very politely stayed awake for my entire talk! Kim and I invited them to come run with us, so we may have an outing to Al Buehler soon. The Delta Gammas have raised several hundred dollars and are fielding a team for the June walk. I will be asking you all to sign up (or donate) at the Soles4Sight page (http://www.fightblindness.org/goto/soles4sight2012) soon enough!

Karing Soles & Run Schedule   Leave a comment

Thanks to the Morellis for a blazing (and bloody) field trip to the Roost! Way too many fallen Soles on this trip…

Now, it is time to to prep for our 5k this Saturday. We have been pushing ourselves pretty hard to get through Little River, Uwharrie and the first half of the Roost training plan. This Saturday’s 5k should give our legs some much needed rest from long miles while testing our speed. I hope to see lots of Soles at the Kidney Kare 5k.

Reverend Rob (who is just so holey) is shopping around the idea of the Warrior Dash and others are headed to Myrlte Beach for the Divas half on the same weekend in May. Thoughts?

Announcements:
Thursday: Spicy Soles Adieu at Spice Street ~8:30ish.

Mentor Subs Needed: I need one for the 4 miler on Saturday. Any helpful Soles?

Sign up for the Kidney Kare 5K on 3/17. Register here (https://www.active.com/event_detail.cfm?event_id=1992298&action=ct) and don’t forget to select the Blazing Soles team.

Upcoming Runs:
Monday: Soggy Sole Swim @ CC ~ 5
Tuesday: 5 Miler from FF @ 7
Wednesday: Soggy Sole Swim @ CC ~ 5
Thursday: Spicy Speedwork @ CC ~ 7, Spice Street @ 8:30
Friday: Soggy Sole Swim @ CC ~ 5
