Here's a huge THANK YOU to Anne Baker and Duane Wilson for setting up water stops on the Frostbite Festival course this weekend. You guys are phenomenal.
And how about all the Frost Toes? You guys started with a 5-mile run at the end of September and now you've completed a course that's so challenging that some very good runners refuse to run it. How big and bad are you?
If anyone has any thoughts about the practice run, including the shuttle bus that never came, feel free to share on the Comments page.
Now we cut it all back for the last two weeks. Tuesday night Dwayne Blisset has a very interesting workout for us, Thanksgiving Day offers a cornucopia of running choices (sorry, but I could not resist), and on Saturday we'll run the Abe's Turkey Trot. Basically, it's a 10k warmup for the Frost Toes, but anyone who wants to dress like a turkey is welcome. And spread the word--anyone who wants to run is welcome to trot the Abe's course with us.
The following week we'll take it easy during our runs, and the Frostbite Festival race is December 2. If you have not registered yet, please do. Also, the Frost Toes shirts that you've requested are NOT the same thing as the race T-shirt. Sorry if I confused anyone, but the Frost Toes shirt is a special commemorative for our group. The Frostbite Festival has its own shirt like any race. So make sure you register for the 10-mile run so there's a race bib for you.
