  1. Group Run on Saturday ”“ 8 am at Haines Point RUN Location  

More than 30 people RSVPing for this run ”“ which means 40.   Fun to see the energy creeping back in!

While the forecast has been softening (see below) ”“ we will still have an eye on the roads and sidewalks in DC and have a go or no-go decision to you by 7 am.     Look to your email, if you don’t see an email check members.triteamz.com, mailing lists, then “Coach Eds’ Communications”.  These notes post immediately ”“ though it could take time for them to filter through email servers.

PLEASE LOOK AT THE DIRCTIONS AND CUE SHEETS BELOW.   SOMEONE ALWAYS GETS LOST FINDING US B/C THEY ASSUME THEY KNOW HAINES POINT VERY WELL.   ALSO, CHECK THE RUN CUE SHEETS SO YOU HAVE THE TIME TO SET YOUR BEARINGS FOR THE RUNS WE WILL PICK FROM IN THE MORNING.

  • When: 8:00 am
  • Where: Hains Point RUN LOCATION
  • What to bring: Dress warm for standing around before the workout starts, and after the workout ends (just in case).   Have a change of shirt/warm top and a towel in your car.   Its fun to hang out and chill for a while without freezing.   Dress to impress!
  • While we will try to coordinate routes in the parking lot ”“ check out or print these “maps” so you can see some of the options for getting in your miles.   We will agree on a few loops to repeat to keep the crew together as best we can.   If running long ”“ plan to make it two loops so you can fill up/eat during the run.     “Cue Sheets” Here:   Click on me
  • Please Vote to let me know if you are coming
  • If you are running or run walking 15-16 minutes per mile or slower ”“ please email Kaila Lupo so you can coordinate the workout as a team.   WE call out this pace b/c for some reason people don’t realize that 25% of our team is this pace (they are just hiding from us)!   Kyla can be reached at KylaLupo@gmail.com

======================

  1. Party update (dress, other, parking reminder, CASH AWARD for the desert contest – $100 for each category)

  • Dress is casual ”“ Jeans and sweatshirt or whatever”¦
