back from hibernation: virtual training run #6

After a long hiatus, the Virtual Training Run* is back. For those of you who haven't played before, here's how it goes. Runners separated by geography do a training run "together" wherever they may be in the world. We set a distance (more or less) and meet at a specific time, so 6:00pm US East Coast time makes it 6:00am the following day in Manila.

I'll be on a working holiday in Freeport/Lucaya so I'll be on the US East Coast time zone.

DATE: 29 July 2008, Tuesday (US East Coast)
TIME: 6:00 P.M. (US East Coast time)
DISTANCE: 10 km/6 miles (or whatever you wish)

The following are past participants and most of them have already committed to joining us. After the training session, each participant writes a quick recap of the session so that each of us benefits from this collective effort. If you don't have a blog, fret not, just comment on one of our blogs about your experience.
  1. Jaymie - Alabang, Philippines
  2. HitMe - Quezon City, Philippines
  3. Banggi - Makati, Philippines/Saigon, Viet Nam
  4. Ben - Manila to Makati, Philippines
  5. Renz - ParaƱaque, Philippines
  6. Marga - ParaƱaque, Philippines

  10. Rick - San Francisco, USA
  11. Nora - Kent County, UK
  12. Steph - San Diego/New York, USA
  13. E-Rod - Newport Beach, USA/Freeport, Bahamas
So what are you waiting for? Lace up those shoes and come join us. It's a perfect training session for the upcoming Nike+ Human Race 10K.

*If you have an injury that keeps you from running, participate by cycling, swimming, blading or anything that involves self-propelled constant motion.
