<p>What? You've never heard of the VRAA? It's the most fun and motivating virtual race you'll find online!  (It might be the only one, I don't know, I'm new here).  Teams are assigned based on level of badassedness and the team with the most points at the end of four weeks WINS fame <span style="text-decoration:line-through;">fortune</span> and glory!!   You will easily track your points into a super snazzy <a target="_blank"><span style="color:#016CA9;">database</span></a> that Hairy Trotter designed - a place where you can also track the progress of you and your team, other teams and other individuals. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>How do you score points in the VRAA?  As Hairy Trotter has put it so eloquently: <strong>exercise yo' ass!</strong>  Keep track of mileage and time. You can run, walk, bike, swim, stretch - JUST MOVE! There are bonus points for posting in the daily threads, volunteering at races, setting a PR or donating blood.  There may be a new way to accrue some bonus points so stay tuned for that info!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Alright Alright ALLRIIIIIIGHT!  There's a new commissioner in town so let's get hottest round of the VRAA to ever hit the threads started!!  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif" style="width:33px;height:35px;" title=""> I might be jumping the gun a little bit here, but I'm excited to get going on this I can't wait!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I figured there's plenty of people training for Fall races so now would be a good time for the added motivation to get out for those training runs on days when the running mojo has gone missing.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Round 23 will start Friday, August 6 and run through September 4</strong>. Since it's my first time <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad5.gif" style="width:17px;height:16px;" title=""> in order to to keep things simple, I won't include Hard Corps this round.</p>

<p>i'm in and I'll come back to edit this with my level. Not sure how much I'll be doing in August so will give this some thought . .  .</p>
<p> </p>
<p>ETA: I think I better play it safe and only commit to being the <strong>BadAss</strong> Backbone of the team. August is unruly hot here so I don't get in as much running, especially since I won't be training for anything really.</p>

<p>Thank you BG!  Sign me up for Mega Super as I'll be doing a little tapering this round.  Could the round please be extended through Labor Day?  There's a  marathon on 9/6 called the Heart Of America I'll be doing. You wouldn't cut the Heart out of VRAA would you? <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad5.gif" style="width:17px;height:16px;" title=""></p>

<p>This most likely goes against my self-proclaimed Summer of Slacking, but I'm in for this round.  Mega Badass level sounds about right.</p>

<p>After a year long hiatus...I'm back in.  It's the only way I can get myself in shape again.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Please put me in as a badass.  No captain.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Gawd...I can't believe I'm doing this....</p>

<p>I should be right at the <strong>Titanium level</strong>, depending on my taper weeks.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>No capt'n</p>
