<span style="font-size:x-large;"><span>Happy Birthday LL!!</span></span> <img alt="surprised.gif" src="">ccasion4:
8 mile run & 10 minutes stretching done.<br><br>
When is the last day of this?
40 minutes cardio -- the doc has let me on the elliptical, so not just being crank-y. (Ahhh)<br>
20 minutes stretch and weights.<br><br>
Thank you all for letting a BAIT play along!
I am confused. so todya is the final day to score points, but you have til Tuesday april 8 to enter them OR can we keep scoring points all weekend and into Tuesday to try to leap frog into 3rd?<br><br>
my hunch is the former, but want to make sure if I am supposed to keep track o my weekend points I do.
Team G has already crossed the finish line and Team A should be following soon as well. Since both teams will cross the finish line on the same day, then Billy will arbitrarily pick a random day at some point during VRAA and of those two teams, whoever was leading in points on that arbitrary day will be the winner, and the other one will be 2nd place. Team G has consistently led this race since almost the beginning, so odds are in their favor to win 1st place, with Team A as 2nd place and now I forget who I saw in 3rd place?<br><br>
here it is as of right now (2:00 p.m)<br>
Team G 12042<br>
Team A 11912<br>
Team I 11128<br>
Team J 10849<br>
Team C 10245<br><br>
We are almost 1000 pts behind the 3rd place team. The 3rd place finisher is still up for grabs. Even Team I has about 900 pts to get to cross the finish for the bronze. I would still encourage you all to do what you can do and get your points entered. Even if it doesn't look like we'll get a 3rd place position. Billy has some leaderboard recap fun he's planning and I think you should all do what you can for your individual points. If I remember correctly, he's going to do some type of recognition for the various levels of badassery that you signed up for and the total points you contributed to your team.

Nothing for me today, but I have a long run scheduled for tomorrow. No matter what happens it has been a good ride for this round of the VRAA. We were hit with the injury bug and such at a bad time.
Hi Team!<br><br>
A bit later I'm heading out for a bike ride - should be able to get in somewhere between 2.5 and 3 hrs worth of biking.<br><br>
if you are acquiring points this weekend, please still go ahead and enter them. It'll help your overall individual standings and Billy has something planned for that as well.
8.25 miles running today and some alt. workout also, but will enter that in later.
Nothing yesterday but I managed a 5 mile run tonight with 10 minutes of stretching. Long run of 12 planned for tomorrow.
Hi, Team:<br><br>
Thank you all, and an especial thanks to our team captains! I've never done so much cross-training -- never!<br><br>
Today: 50 minutes cardio (30 on elliptical and 20 running in pool), 10 minutes stretch and crunch.<br><br>
Have a good rest of the weekend...
Looks like we are packing it in and calling it a great ride. Maybe next time though. Have a great night everyone.
No one has gotten to 3rd place yet, so the game is still on folks. So if you have points, go ahead and enter them.<br><br>
Nice run today Korbel!! wow - 24 miles! sweet!
Hi Team!!<br><br>
I had a lovely 12 mile run on the Gettysburg Battlefields yesterday. I cannot believe I have lived here for ove 10 years and have never gone.<br><br>
Thanks <b>Intense and Tam</b> for being captains this round. You did a fabulous job!
you are very welcome Ecca!<br><br>
That run you had sound wonderful! The N.E. is one region of the U.S. I've never had an opportunity to visit but would sure love to.<br><br>
I'll get in a gym workout later this afternoon while my son is at a bday party.
Tamster and Intensebeet - Thank you both for all of you hard work keeping us on track and making sure our points are counted.<br><br>
12.75 mile run and stretching done today.
the punishment of satuday led me to my only 100% rest day of the entire VRAA body sure needed it.<br><br>
However, legs feel freakin awesome..<br><br>
this has been a blast everyone!
I don't blame you for taking a rest day Korbel, but you were going to be the ONLY member on the C Team that scored points every single day! You were going to get a special gift for that too . . .<br><br>
oh, what the heck . . . I'll give you a dancing banana anyways! <img alt="banana.gif" src=""><br><br>
I know we sort of fizzled out this past weekend, since it didn't look like we would place, and I have quite a few peeps that didn't record points or check in - and a few that haven't checked in since the 4th. BUT, if you are so inclined, please enter your points. I was planning on totalling up what everyone contributed to the team for this round of VRAA and see how that compares with whatever category you signed up as so you can see how accurately you predicted your level of contribution. (I'm a numbers geek that way I guess). I think quite a few folks will be surprised how they exceeded what they thought they would contribute. Those cross training and alternate workouts really add up.<br><br>
I hope everyone enjoyed the ride and if this was your first VRAA, I hope you'll participate again in future rounds.

Hey, hey... I have 30pts to post from Saturday. I'm going to do it right now. You guys were a great team!<br>
I just realized that I didn't enter my Thursday points either, so I went ahead and did that.
Hi, Tamster:<br><br>
I fizzled on the weekend with a Sunday rest... and a Monday also.
YAY Mustang Mom! I hope you enjoyed your resting!<br><br>
I did a little number crunching and this is for informational purposes only! It's not, repeat NOT!, meant to say to anyone "you didn't live up to your commitment" or anything like that at all! I tallied each individuals points so you can see what you contributed individually to our team totals. Then I am giving you what the range of total points contribution would ideally be based the levels of 'badassery'. You can then compare what level you signed up as (and if you don't remember, I can tell you as I have that stuf at my fingertips here), with what your total points were. This is just so you can see, if you are interested, if you accurately predicted what you'd be doing and may be helpful in determining what level you sign up for if you do another VRAA.<br><br>
our total points as of today is 11,053 (but really it's 10,953 because we were given 100 pts for coming up with a team name)<br><br>
Abb94: 794<br>
AlaMichele: 326<br>
Andi: 803<br>
Chosha2002: 283<br>
Eccabex: 790<br>
intensebeet: 666<br>
JJJ: 1070<br>
kfuller: 558<br>
korbel: 987<br>
lgreenberg: 1047<br>
MMom: 378<br>
Runnin: 857<br>
tamster: 834<br>
winejunky: 1033<br>
vashondan: 527<br><br>
Titanium = 1120 or more points<br>
Mega = 800-1120 pts<br>
Super = 480-800 pts<br>
Badass = 240-480<br>
BAIT = 0-240<br><br>
Almost everyone (10 people to be exact) moved up ONE category from what they thought they would do compared to what they actually did. But no one totally underestimated (or sandbagged as some teams would call it! LOL ) what they would contribute. So, in that respect, I would say we had a very successful and accurate team. Even those that got injured did enough cross training to stay within their category.<br><br>
And a big congrats to Chosha - who signed on as BAIT, but with a score of 283 you were comfortably in the badass category! Nice job!
