Fleet Feet Auction & VisionWalk   Leave a comment

Two big events this Saturday! Please come out and support both good causes!

At 10AM is the 2012 Triangle VisionWalk. I hope to build on our success from last year in fighting blindness. Please consider walking with me as part of my team – Soles4Sight. You can sign up (or donate) at the Soles4Sight page (http://www.fightblindness.org/goto/soles4sight2012). Thank you!

In the evening is the Silent Auction at Fleet Feet to support the PTA Thrift Store. Mary B. has forwarded me the items going up for bid! [N.B. Where's the BS basket?]

Memorial Weekend Running   Leave a comment

Two blazing runs for the weekend!

First, tomorrow is Natalie’s potluck run. Be at Coriander Court by 8:30 for some flat Tobacco Trail miles. Bring some food! (PS there have been some assaults recently on the ATT, but no where near where we will be!)

Second, Bea and Kelly (our Pittsboro contingent) are organizing an 8AM Briar Chapel run on Monday. We are not meeting at the CITP, so here are directions:

South on 15501 toward pittsboroRight into Briar Chapel development
Left at the first cross walk you will see parking on the right at trail head

"Kelly and I will make sure there is ice and water mid run but it is good to carry, best to carry water I want to start at Catullo so you all can enjoy the hills which we will do ultra style. Kelly and I have run enough together to show u the flow of well paced, peaceful miles No one is too slow, it is only strength that is important. Those going a bit quicker can circle back thus getting more trail. 7 miles option to add (or subtract) a bit
Plan to get very dirty and sweaty! Last sat we sat down to rest!" Bego
