<span style="text-decoration:underline;">Update Sat 3/10:</span><br>
The excitement is building. I look forward to stepping it up for the next 3.5 weeks with some personal goals to increase my fitness. Its my hope that the VRAA will provide a simliar motivation to one and all.<br><br>
If you're like me, you're thinking of new or extra ways to earn points. I've already asked myself, if I ride my bike to and from work just one time I can earn <i>x</i> points!<br><br>
As your moderator, I do not expect to get this perfect on the first go-around. I envision the first round as a trial-run with the intent of keeping it simple, fun, and managable for all.<br><br>
As of today, there are 31 participants signed-up.

<span style="text-decoration:underline;">Update 3/19:</span><br><br>
Leaderboard now posted.<br><br>
Keep the results coming in. I've set up a sheet to keep score and updating the leaderboard will be simpler than expected. I plan to update the team standings once per day. The <i>Top 5</i> categories will be updated on Mondays and Thursdays.

<span style="text-decoration:underline;">Update 3/20:</span><br><br><b>- ATTENTION:</b> Roster change. Effective immediately, <b>roots</b> to Team B and <b>redkite</b> to Team C.<br><br>
My apologies on the change, but I've decided to split up myself and Flounder. Today's point totals reflect the change.
