Sign up for the next round here.<br><br>
Playing this game is simple: (1) You work out. (2) You report how much you work out in this forum. (3) Your team gets points and moves its virtual way across America as a result.<br><br>
How many points do you earn? Look <a href="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6003" target="_blank">in this thread</a> for the scoring table. As you can see, there's a lot of ways to move your team across American.<br><br>
Who's gonna be on your team? We'll group folks randomly, but with an eye toward competitive balance. To do that, I'd like to get a rough sense of where you figure you'll stand as a point earner. So when you sign up, please place yourself in one of the following categories. Make your best guess about what you'll average over the course of the next several weeks and categorize yourself accordingly. You won't be punished if you end up doing more or less.<br><br>
(1) <b>Mega Super Badass:</b> You're a sizzling chunk of aerobic machinery, earning roughly 200 points per week or more. You run 50+ miles per week, or run 40+ miles per week plus bike 25ish miles per week, or bike 135 miles per week, or walk a 9.5 mile mail delivery route every day plus run like a beast in your free time, etc.<br><br>
(2) <b>Super Badass:</b> You're hot & sassy. You run 30-50 mpw or the equivalent, earning 120-200 VRAA points per week.<br><br>
(3) <b>Badass:</b> You are the backbone of the VRAA. No team can win without a solid core of Badassery. You run 15-30 mpw or the equivalent, racking up 60-120 VRAA points per week.<br><br>
(4) <b>Badass in Training:</b> Maybe you're in one of them long tapers, or you're aspiring to badassery, or you're really busy right now, or you're crosstraining through an injury. Whatever. I love you for who you are, and I respect you for what you do. And what you do is this: earn 0-60 VRAA points weekly for your team. That's up to 15 mpw running, or 40 mpw on a bike, or 6000 yards of swimming, or a few good days at the gym lifting weights and/or tooling around on them machines. To get closer to the low end up the point range, simply up the Cheetos consumption.<br><br>

I'm thinking that my half marathon training schedule moves me into the "badass" category. However, I never log anything besides running miles. Lots of folks have some cross training and stuff they keep track of, so mileage counts might not be all that telling as far as points being scored. All the previous VRAA-ers know how many points they have had in the past, though, so it shouldn't matter.<br><br>
Oh, er, I'm techgoddess, and I want to play VRAA. I'm expecting to be doing 20-30 mpw, and within a month more like 25-35.
