hey guys!<br><br>
First priority is Billy wants us to have <i>real</i> names so start thinking. It's gotta be something that will let everyone know that we're going to kick ass!!!

Secondly, did eeryone play last round? We're going to do hte same thing with entering in your own points, only this time they will be broken down for each activity. The plan is for you to post in the daily thread, enter in your points in the stnading board and come here and tell us how much you KICKED ASS!<br><br>
If anyone knows that they won't be able to enter their own points, let me know and i'll do it. I just want to make sure not to put in duplicate points.<br><br>
There are a couple other changes for this round, the name thing, also we'll be having weekend challenges that if you complete at least 1 point in hte certain "activity" you'll get 5 bonus points. More on that later.<br><br>
That's all I got. So tell us about yourself! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

while I'm talking to myself I'll start the intro's...<br><br>
I post mainly in the RMADs forum, in my 30's(for a little longer), have 2 boys almost 8 and almost 4, been running 3 years, ran my first marathon in Nov 2007 and am currently working on getting 6 in 6 months under my belt. I'm not fast but there's usually people still behind me when I come in.

i nominate the Team Name <b>badasses extraordinare</b> or something similar!<br><br>
Wow, I think this is the first team where I really don't know anyone too well. I look forward to getting to know all of you better and kicking some major VRAA ass together!!!<br><br>
Oh yeah, something about myself... I'm a 33 y.o. nursing student with one incredibly spoiled dog. I started running in 2004. I am a defector from the old Clubhouse at coolrunnings and I spend most of my time in the PRT. I enjoy beer and warm weather. My turnoffs are other VRAA teams and bad breath. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Team Big n Bad. Woot Woot!<br><br>
I usually hang out in the 30s Club.<br><br>
I've played the last couple of VRAA rounds but can you give a refresher course on how to enter our own points? Last round we didn't enter our own points, team captain did, but I've been in there, I just can't remember how to get there.<br><br>
We start Friday right??<br><br>
I'm psyched!

Yo yo peeps. Awesome crew. I recognize lots of names and hope to get to know the others. I am a RM peep and post there. Sometimes I post in the PRT and usually get ignored <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br>
I know that with some of our team members there are awesome stats, and I feel privileged to compete alongside y'all.

BG-Not really sure how to get there yet. I'm assuming Billy will start a standing thread. Then you'll have to sign up at the site if you didn't last time. If we don't see how by Thursday, I'll start bugging him. Friday it is!

Ooops.. I forgot to say a little about myself... I'm in my 30s, post on RMaD thread daily, been running since 2006 with a little break in the second half of 2007. In May I will complete my first HM and in September my first Marathon. Love running, can't get enough of it.. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I'm Myron, I'm 36... I run... This time around, I'm going to hit taper mode with about 2 weeks left in the VRAA, that shouldn't affect us too bad, because I should still hit 38-44 MPW even in taper mode.<br><br>
I usually post in RMADs and 30's. So I actually already know many of you (from either of those places), or from past VRAA's <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
I have a Marathon coming up on April 6th (Athens, Ohio). It's the big one... the one I'm throwing all my irons in the fire for <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> so hopefully I'll get that BQ this time.<br><br>
Batmomm pointed out in a PM that I've been on the winning VRAA team a few times now (twice) in the two times I've played. I'd also like to point out another factoid... I've also had the future commisioner of the next round on my team each time I've played... First time I played, Roots was on my team, and he commissioned last round. Last round, Billy was on my team... so who from this team is going to step up for the next round? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> It's all coincidence - If we all work hard hopefully we'll have the winning team, if not, we'll at least come out with some friendships, and in better shape than we started <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I'm Jen, 35 and post in the RM/RD's thread. I have three boys, almost 3, 5, and 7. I'm training for my first 1/2 in May. I'm excited to get some motivation for more strength training and x-training with VRAA (I'm really lax on those unless I'm injured).<br><br>
We're sure to do well since Myron is on our team- he always wins right?<br><br>
I love the name idea- but sadly I don't have any ideas. I'll try to come up with something. I like the one thirtyin04 suggested.

MyKemp!! Good to see you again. I was team J last round and this is my second vraa, so I am going for 2-0 in wins.<br><br>
I am a bad ass in trng so I will be the extra point point person. Previous strategy was start out strong, figure what we shoud strive for in points based on their level and go for it. It seemed to work reallywell with team J. I look forward to working with everyone. I will post points and try to hit the thread everyday, however I am usually MIA on weekends and post my sunday run on Monday.<br><br>
About myself... I usually post on Race & Run reports daily and am a fugitive from CR. It looks like I am so the most senior person here, not gonna say my age, but haven't seen 30 for long time however I am not at the top of the hill yet.<br><br>
I live in PA and enjoy trail running the most. I usually stick with trail races & HM's and my running partner is my puppers. Married to a couch potato, 2 kids 20 & 16. I am in training for a HM at end of April, however I do have a race I might be able to squeeze in for extra points before 4/6.<br><br>
I am soooo excited. I will try and think of a name and let you know by end of day.
