The all hands weekend 7/19-7/20

Posting this after the fact 🙁   so it is documented. What a weekend!!!!

THE ALL HANDS WEEKEND…

NOTE THAT WE CHANGED THE RUN LOCATION TO A PAVILION AT NEEDWOOD PARK. Miscommunication. Ed, Alexis, and I had a “who’s on first” conversation yesterday that was a result of my typo 6 months ago. We are running from a pavilion in Needwood Park (the opposite end of Rock Creek Park as Pierce Mill). We are not at Carderock. Totally my fault – kick me in the shins next time you see me.

What is the “all hands” weekend?
The all hands weekend is a team Z tradition. It’s the weekend of our peak in our training plans, and the weekend when our Iron folks have to ride 120 miles and run 20. These distances are a true physical and mental challenge and the time when folks going “long” benefit from the spirit and camaraderie of the team the most. So what does team Z do to support these folks? Why we grill of course! What else would Team Z do?! We will be grilling at both the ride and the run to encourage folks to hang out. And hang out you should – there is no better feeling than coming back from a colossal workout to 100 cheering teammates!

REV 3 DETAILS ARE IN ANOTHER E-MAIL

LAST MINUTE QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS WEEKEND. So, baby #2 is due to arrive on Monday. But… I’ve given myself a few weekends off in a row just in case she comes early. Including this one. I don’t mind last minute e-mails or calls – I get them every weekend – but I just wanted everyone to know that if I’m unresponsive you may want to reach out to the person in charge of that particular workout. I will not have my cell with me in the delivery room. J And of course reading through this NOW and asking questions ahead of time is helpful.

Weekend of June 7/8 – Team Z activities

EAGLEMAN DETAILS ARE IN ANOTHER E-MAIL

HHPP OFFLINE RIDE:
Happy Happy Pain Pain is another in of the “Soul Crushing Seven” series of rides that we have (I just made that up, but it seems appropriate). It is only for very strong, very experienced riders and only applicable if you are training for our hilliest, longest events. We have a small group of veterancyclists who are heading out there this weekend… they reached out to make sure they weren’t interfering with our plans, and to invite anybody who might be interested (and strong enough). Very cool, thanks guys, we appreciate your part in promoting our sense of community and inclusion! For details contact Jason George at jpglaw@yahoo.com. It is unsupported of course… just a group of Z’s getting together to ride.
