<p>Hey all,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm a Libra and I like long walks on the beach and Air Supply....no wait, what?  JK. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Oh, yeah, OK, i'm a runner. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've been away from the VRAA for the last few rounds, but I was very active a while ago.  I think I was on 3 winning teams, including back to back wins, but that was a few years ago. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>This weather (in Birmingham, AL) is kicking my butt, but I'm trying to kick back.  I'm training for a September marathon so I should be doing some big miles in August.  Hopefully that means I'll post some decent points. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>And that's all I have to say about that. </p>

<p><img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wave.gif" title=""> Hello! :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Signed up as BA. Will be running, weight training and new this round, biking. Ok- riding a bike. Nothing fancy! I don't have any races planned for the moment. I'm still thinking about a Labor Day 10k..... I will do my best to post every day in the thread, but tbh, I have a hard time keeping up with all the posting/entering once school starts back (next week). I will try!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'll officially suggest B Aggressive as team name? It's ok if it's lame.</p>

<p>Hi all, I'm Lisa, signed up as Mega BA again for this round.  Not many races coming up as I am training for my first 50K trail race on October 31, but my mileage will be ramping up in the weeks ahead and I definitely will be working for those stretching bonus points. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>No ideas for names yet, I'll think about it.</p>

<p>What an awesome roster!  We can not fail.  Good round for me coming up.  Not as much training but  some good races.  10k on 8/7 that DD is running with me, Pikes Peak Marathon on 8/22 and Heart of America Marathon on 9/6.  I also weight train for a bone study at Mizzou 2x/week.  Good for some points I hope.  This Fall I'm  in for Lewis & Clark Marathon on 10/3 and a 50k trail race on 10/10. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Let's have an awesome round everyone!</p>

<p>I'm coming off a couple of years of slowing down across all my times, from 5k to marathon.  I'm working on getting them all back up to previous levels of comfort (5k - 23:00; 10k - 48:00, 1/2 1:44:00; Full sub 4).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Pretty confident I can reach the 5k and 10k goals by the end of the year; the 1/2 I'll have to work on; and although I'm mentoring a slow group for the Breast Cancer Marathon in February, I'm probably going to find another race while they are doing that one, as I've ran it twice now) and see how close I can come to my 1/2 mar goal at that point.  I've put any full marathons on hold for now until I'm well under 2 hours for the 1/2.</p>

<p>Tech Tee here...I'm trying to get back on track to being healthy (so what else is new), but this time it's gonna stick.  I'm a Badass...I'm pretty confident I can fill well over 60 points a week...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Did VRAA twice last year...first time OK, second time I got hurt...but I do NOT expect that to happen this time...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I can't wait for Friday to START!</p>

<p>I've played a lot of VRAA rounds  ... know many of you from here or other forums I've visited ...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm a mother to 2 adult children and married to my hubby for nearly 24 years!  Started running trails and ultras last year and am a bit of a MANIAC about it, lol ... even dragged hubby into the fray as he's doing his first 8 hour race with me August 14th!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>tapering right now  ... racing mid-august ... hoping to need minimal recovery and ramp up milage for my first 100k in October ... but if I need it I'll be recovering a couple weeks after my 8 hour ... I hope I can meet the titanium level I signed on for!</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>looks like we have a pretty impressive team here!  </p>

<p> </p>
<p>Me too!  Well, not the Air Supply part.  You're on your own there, buddy. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I too was on back-to-back winning teams a few years back.  I think I've been on 3 or 4 winning teams.  Yay! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm Theia, I'm a triathlete, and I'm happy to be on this team!  I like B Aggressive for a team name.  Cute.  I have a sprint tri on September 12 and a half marathon on October 3.  If I can, I'll try to jump in some shorter races to get bonus points during the next few weeks. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Speaking of which...  There's another tri I really want to do on August 21, but the timing is really tight...  I'll be checking out of a beach rental that day, and we have to be out by 10 a.m.  I'm not sure I can do a tri in a town 30 minutes away and still make it back to the rental to help my family with clean-up and stuff.  Talk me into it, team!  I WANT to do it...  I'm just way too responsible to be that selfish with my time.  Have to sign up by Monday, so it'll be a quick decision regardless.</p>
<p> </p>

<p>Hi all - I've been in and out of VRAA over the years, but I figured this would be a good time to get back into it while ramping up for Twin Cities.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My name is Joe (you can call me Moonie like many do), and marathon is pretty much my main concentration at the moment, with me coming back off of a Maniac-earning swath of those long races.  With that said, I would like to branch back out into the world of triathlon and trail running and shorter distance racing again, and I know the value of cross-training, so hopefully I can make that all work out with the time constraints I have.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And yeah, Theia - DO IT! ;)</p>

<p>I'm trying to save $ for some running trips so am not racing as much ... and remember, a race bonus is only 5 points and you can earn 5 points easily in other ways, so don't go too crazy trying to fit races in and messing with your real goals, peeps!</p>

<p>Barry Manilow is the Anti-Christ.  My mother and her friends had a very unfortunate encounter w/ him.  The guy is a complete Bag of Douche.</p>

<p>I'm BigGahoona, and I like marathons!   I'm currently training for Twin Cities on October 3rd.  I've decided to put off today's run to tomorrow morning - so's I can get dem points!  AND I'm donating blood tomorrow too! Wooty hoo hoo! </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Theia</strong> - your family supports your athletic endeavors, right?  They'd surely be okay taking over your share of the clean-up-and-get-out part of the beach house!  DO IT! I bet your fam will say the same thing. DO IT!</p>

<p>Hey fellow B's -</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am another Tim.  Spend most of my time here on the 30's board, even though I am 30+ at this point.  I am also spending time at Photo Finish because I like playing with photography.  Fitness wise, I am a re-newbie.  Currently at about 20 mpw, hoping to ramp up for a fall HM.  I do have a recovery week coming up after tomorrow's planned 8 miler.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Let's B the best B's we can B.</p>

<p>The big bonus-earning thingee this time is stretching. I hate to stretch. OK, maybe not hate, but something close. And I've never found it to be very helpful with injuries and stuff. Plus yoga kinda freaks me out.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But maybe I'll do more it, just cuz I like to score.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm enjoying the last of my summer break, and I usually manage decent mileage in during August before turning into a slug for the fall, so I'm signed up to score big points. I don't have any big races in store during this round -- just a sprint triathlon this weekend and a for-fun triple triathlon later this month (super sprint on a Saturday, then sprint and olympic tris back to back the next day). Other than that, I plan on a lot of pointless junk miles to pass the time.</p>
