Once again .. too long since a blog post.. but such is life.  

Quick update — training is going well, the training miles are ticking upward and the calendar is ticking downward!  With that being said, I’ve picked a date and location for my longest training run and I wanted to share… more on that in a sec. 

Originally, I was thinking of heading to Georgia for the Lady of The Lakes event.  After another friend opted to skip it, I too passed.  A combination  of reasons, but the main one being financial if I am being honest!

FAQ / Questions / Answers
Who can run? Anyone. It’s OTB. So… F3, FiA, Friends of both, neighbors!?   That said, I do believe it might be easier to keep smallish.. 10-30 people?

Sure?! Feel free to jump in and run/walk with someone. If you/they want company!

Do I need to sign up to run or pace or volunteer?
Prob? Depending on interest level. Stay tuned!

What is the Start Time so early?
It’s my event. That’s why.  If you want to start later and/or somewhere else for parts of it, totally fine with me.
