Let's Do It Again!

One more time, it's Take Your Pick Saturday! You can just feel the excitement.

For all of the Half Wits crowd, this route is an olide but a goodie:

It's also a good one because you can literally decide just what distance you want to run. You can run the Wabash Trail to the CVS Pharmacy and back for 6 miles; run over the Stanford overpass and back for 8 miles, or do the whole distance for 11. Want 12? Before or after the run, cut across the ShopKo lot, turn left onto Robbins, left onto Hollis, and curve around back to Panera.

I'll have Gatorade and water on the picnic tables at the east end of the Wabash Trail, and everyone going the full 11 can grab a drink in the FitClub lobby. We'll start from Panera West at 7 am.

Since the HalfWits program starts on February 2, I'm thinking about taking a two-week break from formal group runs. That will give everyone a chance to show up for HalfWits refreshed and ready to run again. Sound good?

Sounds good to me. My cold is better so I am hoping to get in as many miles as possible before the halfwits training starts. Sorry about missing last week.

Barry I love how you give what mileage we could do!! You are so so creative!

But... where's the .5 mark??? That is about how far I can go right now... ;)

Can someone also bring a shovel so they can carry my ass from dragging off the road??? Debi? Holly? Do you have one??? It seems to be holding me down a lot lately!!! I'm so embarrassed of all the dirt/rocks my husband finds~ it is so NOT sexy to tell him that the marks that are left are not tattoos!!!!

Cyas on Saturday! :)

First of all--Barb, never apologize for missing a run. You gotta tend to your health first. That's why the rest of us run.

Kari, I ain't dead, so you'll only have to survive without the big toe for two weeks because you ARE going to run with the HalfWits starting Feb 2, aren't you? Mmmmm hmmmm . . . .

Emily, I think Best Buy is the .5 mark and I will bring a shovel to scoop up your ass. Long been a fantasy . ..

And you're right, Kari IS so pretty!
