Okay, it's time to check in. Then we need a team name. I'll have you all know I don't want any lazy runners on my team because I'm two out of three for VRAA wins and <b>I don't like losing!</b><br><br>
Now, about that team name... Something with a J? Team Joyous Junk? Nah.<br><br>
How about The Undeterred? (it's a homonym) <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
And please don't make me a captain. I have a hard time logging in at work and I'm generally disorganized anyway.

Hi Teammates!<br><br>
I'm Coleen and this is my first VRAA. I'm pretty darn competitive, so I promise to work my butt off for you guys! I'll set my brain to thinking about a team name today at work since I won't be using it there. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

I just noticed how many wimmins there are on Team J. Being the supportive guy that I am, I volunteer to give all you ladies massages and hand wash your Jogbras. Don't bother to take them off first; you'll be so busy running and all.<br><br><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

This is my first VRAA! Unfortunately I did something to my back between signing up for this and getting assigned to a team, but I'm hoping for a quick recovery and logging points anyway I can.<br><br>
Team name... will have to think about this one!

... And yes, we do need a kick ass team name!<br>
This is from Billy:2. There Will Be Names. I'd like for teams to have names other than letters of the alphabet this round. I'd like teams to come up with them as a group but the responsibility will be yours. You don't have to come up with a name but teams that do will be given 100 bonus points. Here's the rules<br><br>
*Needs to be something like a word, i.e. no mere letters or numbers<br>
*Let's keep it to under 30 characters.<br>
*No special characters that might mess up the database like: ( = + & @<br>
*Names will be due to me by Tuesday the 11th.<br><br>
So let's get cracking on a name. And I would like to issue a team challenge: I plan on getting up 30 minutes early- to get in an extra workout. For me- that means I get up at 2:30 A.M. Are you up for it??

Hey, Team <b>J</b>. This is my, I don't know, 3rd VRAA and I've never won. Dang it-----let's win this time!!!!!<br><br>
Team names?.....um something with jump and / or jive? I don't know, not feeling very creative this morning!!!<br><br>
I'm traveling all next week for work and will probably log my points right to the points database (that's an option this round, right?).<br><br>
ah, <b>wu</b>, thanks for the massage and laundry offer!!! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I can host a party in <b>Syracuse</b> once we get there!!! I'm thinking Colman's Irish Pub. Oh, and I know some great spots in <b>Detroit</b>. Other than that, I leave the other locals you to the rest of the team!<br><br>
Go team!!!!

Don't forget:4. Theme Weekends: As part of the "game" aspect of the VRAA, I'm going to offer some bonus point opportunities. I'll need your help on these. Each weekend will have a "theme" activity. If you do an activity enough get 1 VRAA point, you also get 5 bonus points. There is no requirement that anyone do any of the theme activities; it is just a way to score extra points. The themes will be on weekends (Fri-Sun). You can only earn 1 theme bonus per weekend.<br><br>
1st weekend: Alternate Workouts (b/c we are starting in CA)<br>
2nd weekend: Cycling (wide open spaces of western US)<br>
3rd weekend: Swimming (crossing the Mississippi and seeing the Great Lakes)<br>
4th weekend: Running (for the race to the finish)<br>
This weekend is Alt Workout- so let's dust off the yoga mats, weights, and whatever else and score big this weekend! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> 12 points max per day (60 minutes)+ the 5 extra points!! so please be sure to include an Alt workout plans for three days. Even 1 point for an Alt. workout means 6 points for the team.

Btw- starting new job on Monday! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> So from 8 am to 4:30 I'll be working, weekends off. I'll do my e-mails and PMs after 7 pm.<br>
FYI: My name is Kim, co captain, and I plan on doing two workouts a day, one will be running, the other an Alt. workout ( during the week) and adding a Cardio workout on weekends.<br><br>
My e-addy is <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a><br>
If you are planning to be away from your computer for awhile ( ie: several days) PM me and I'll give you my home phone # so your points will be added to team report.
