Hi all, the FA post by roots made me wonder again about the possibility of a FA in French Creek Park or elsewhere in PA.<br><br>
Merigayle et al., are there any further plans for doing something like this?

Not in the near future, but maybe in the summer. We may have a FA in VA over memorial day weekend since one of our beloved races is cancelled due to the RD being shipped off to Iraq <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

I heard a "rumor" that Team slug might been having some sort of "Rumble" in DE during June...

OK, thanks for the update.<br><br>
I probably won't be able to make the tip to VA or DE, but would definitely be interested in something a little closer to home... will keep my eye out for further news...<br><br>
Thanks again!

Delaware was not bad, we drove down race morning, it just took a couple hours, then drove back <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

A FA at French Creek would be awesome. Merigayle should get on it.<img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><br>
French Creek is great it can be technical or not depending on your trail choice.

We could meet up for a shorter trail run in the spring.

Well, if I hadn't let myself go over the winter I would join you all, but as it is, I find myself in the same situation as last year, too slow to run with anybody else as I'm doing the MAF low heart rate training and hitting 16:00 miles, barely running. Maybe in three months when I burn off the belly and rebuild some endurance I can check back in with you all. The Wissahickon Gorge in Philly is a place I would love to run with some other runners especially if they've never run there. Just so you know who I am, I used to post as Gregolowe on the Coolrunning board. My name is Greg. Merigayle and I chatted at the VT 50 briefly as we walked up a big hill and watched David Bowie drive by in a Volvo. I also missed some of you last year on a fall FA meet up in French Creek when I got lost.

Hi Greg!!!!!!!!<br>
The only thing i am planning right now is some training weekends in Woodstock, VA to do some repeats on Woodstock Mountain in preparation for Western States <img alt="surprised.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/surprised.gif">

Man are you lucky. Are you still scared or do you feel confident? I saw how you were kind of freaked when your name was drawn. Oh, and did you give up on massage and become a Texas ranger or something?

I am feeling much more confident. I ran a 100 miler last month in 25 hours, so that makes me MUCH more confident in staying ahead of the cut offs at WS. I have been training my tush off and doing some pretty heavy training with my coach, so i feel really ready. I have another 100 miler coming up, so more experience the better <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif">

Im jealous! I wish I was running western states (or could run western states). My wife and I are going to go out there and volunteer though. I will be on the cable at the Rucky Chucky River crossing and she will be at the aid station. It should be a lot of fun!
