– July 4 – convergence: Davis Lake @ 0700
– 76 days until Blue Ridge Relay (see @Bling for lessons on uphill running form)

Nakedman Moleskin
– Great job today fellas – thanks for coming out. Covered a LOT of ground… some good variety of features and terrain in a tight area.
– Based on @Sugar’s posting, I’m now HCed for the Flying Saucer #knurdrun next Thurs at 7pm. I’ll verify his number of beer club plates while I’m there (legend has it as 6.)
– Solid work by everyone too. I kept trying to step increasingly harder on the intensity gas pedal, but everyone hung tough… well done.
– We’ll likely launch #Skywalker during the week of July 13th with Wednesdays @ Winding Walk and Fridays being Skydays (Skybrook at the golf club, lower lot) #seewhatIdidthere
– Alternate between the two AOs until the PAX decide to consolidate or decide to keep the variety
– Workouts will be bootcamps as an alternative to PAX who don’t want to run on Wed/Fri at Highlands or Rolling Stone (or any other AO for that matter)
– We’ll need to start promoting over the coming weeks… stay tuned for details.

    Had lots of fun today and looking forward this AO! Tons of toys there to play with!

    I believe the rules clearly state that the tempo of the 10 count is solely at the discretion of the PAX selected to give said 10 count. Having said that, it would’ve been faster had I been able to breathe!

    Legend clarification: Plate #5 with 23 to go. The real question is which will come first, #Skywalker AO or plate #6? Place your bets – #plate6countdown
