  • We're going to be at the Oatmeal 5K tomorrow. My husband is running his FIRST RACE EVER, and the kids and I will be cheering him on. Come on out, it's going to be fantastic!

  • oh that *is* fantastic! Got some obligations in the morning around that time otherwise I would be out there testing the old legs. It would be an interesting benchmark compared to last year when I was fit.

  • Todd, you going to be at the Fast Flurry-ous? Pretty sure you ran it last year if I recall.

  • I haven't committed yet, but would like to! Will you make it up again? Hope to see you there

  • runcolo

    I'm planning on running it, hope to see you there.
