virtual training run #2

With the first virtual training run between me and hitme tucked away in history, we've decided to do one again. Because hitme trains in the ghostly pre-dawn darkness, he would be left to running without a "live" partner were it not for our virtual training sessions.

Here are the deets...

When: Wed. Aug 1, 1:30pm (Los Angeles time)
Where: Where ever you are
Distance: 10k/6.2 miles (or whatever distance you need to train)

On this run, we've doubled our number of participants. Woohoo! We've added Manila-based runners, Ben and Jaymie, and they'll have the "fun" starting time of 4:30 am since they're in the same time zone as hitme.

As with most training runs, it's more fun to have more runners, so I'm extending this invitation to any and all to join us on this virtual training run. We've set the base distance at about 6 miles, but you can do however many you need to. All we need for you to do is show up, smile and run.

******************
UPDATE ON PARTICIPANTS:

Thurs, 4:30am (Manila) start time
Hitme - Quezon City route
Jaymie - Alabang route
Ben - Metro Manila-Makati BCD route
Renz - Makati
Banggi - if she gets up
Marga - ParaƱaque

Wed, 1:30pm (US West Coast) start time
Steph - Balboa Park (San Diego)
Gretchen - Sammamish River bike path (Seattle Area)
• E-Rod - Back Bay dirt trail (Newport Beach)

any more runners wanna join?
