ONE MORE RACE!!



My present to myself (to keep me running through the dead of winter) and to all of you??
ONE MORE VIRTUAL RACE...

More on this beautimous logo (created by the lovely and talented artist, Gretchen, at a heArt a day) and the race to come. For now, put February 9th on your calendars, try to squeeze in some runs during this crazy time, and have a HAPPY HOLIDAY!!


I hope you like your present!! Spread the word...

uh.. oh.. you really are going up with the numbers :)

I'm in!

Flo said...

I'm in. This couldn't be more perfectly timed. I'm in a race on President's Day and this will fit in perfectly with my training.

Pat said...

I'm doing 13 on the 13th. Or if I'm brave 26 on the 13th. But, Javamom, Pokey and I are doing 10 soon, so maybe we'll count that. Or you could have a special category for the half marathoners next month.

L*I*S*A said...

Great race idea!!!

Unknown said...

love it!

count me in!!

Pokey said...

Yipppppppppppeeeeeeeee! Thanks for the present, Nancy! :)

I'm with Pat....we will have to do something a bit different since the RNR Half is on Jan 13. My last run will be the weekend before and it will only be 6 miles.

Maybe we can pool a couple shorter runs?? Hmmmm....gotta think about that one for all the Rock N Rollers.

Nat said...

Well, that's half the 18 I'm suppose to do on that day so, if so I'm in.

I somehow missed the last one, and I have an 8k scheduled for Feb. 9th... so I dunno.... i'll stay tuned tho

Unknown said...

Well, even though you didn't join me for 22 on the 22nd (OUCH!), I suppose I can do this :)

P.O.M. said...

Great logo! I think I'll be cheering from the side-bloglines on this one. I will be heading to Hawaii and recouping from my race. But.... there is a MAYBE if I am feeling good after my race. Stay tuned.

Unknown said...

It looks like I'll be doing about 26-28 miles that day. So, if you'll have me, I'm in.

Stuart said...

You can have the first 9 of my 21 miler, count me in

Marcy said...

Pat and Pokey it's in FEB not JAN LOL You'll totally be fine for 9 miles ;-)

I'm in Nanc! ;D

sRod said...

...there goes the extended rest period I had scheduled for February. Sigh. Where do I sign up? Maybe we can do something with the lack of water stations this time :).

If there are other RBF in the NYC, maybe we can meet together in Central Park?

Gotta Run..... said...

First... I think everyone is a littel MIA this time of year. Love the photos!!!

I am in for the 9 on 9 and will do better with my race stats this time around.

Merry Christmas!

Jess said...

Alrighty, I'm in!

I was thinking about it the other day, and what we really should do is go in order of the months and days: 1 mile on Jan 1st, 2 miles on Feb 2nd, and so forth through the year. But 9 on the 9th works as well. I think that's a Wednesday, right?

Pokey said...

derrrrr....FEBRUARY 9!!! It would help if Pat and I could read :P

I think I'm a go....

Brooke said...

Must. not. forget. this. time.
Must. not. forget. this. time.

Laura said...

Yay, I'm thrilled! Also, srod (and anyone else in NYC): feel free to contact me and maybe we'll get a little non-virtual Central Park start together.

ws said...

Are you trying to force me out of my no-plan plan?

Have a great holiday, Nancy.

teacherwoman said...

Oh boy, 9 on the 9th! I don't know if I will be able to participate as I am supposedly doing that indoor tri thingy on the 10th. Hmm.

Bev said...

I love to try this one. Count me in!

Anonymous said...

I'm putting it on my schedule!

DawnB said...

I'm putting it on my calendar!!

Happy Holidays to you and yours enjoy!!

Unknown said...

Funny, for a bean counter, Pokey sure can't count.

*evil snicker* Couldn't resist an easy kick in the shin.

Like I said, I'm in.

Wes said...

Tentatively in. I'll have to see where I'm at in February.

Merry Christmas, Nancy!!

zanne said...

well, i am totally out of this one - seeing as i will be running 26.2 on the 10th!!

RunToTheFinish said...

I'm in, but only if you're actually going to post my results.

JUST KIDDING, I love you! Great idea, I needed something fun to train for and this will do it.

Razz said...

Gulp! I'm in.

This will help with my HM training, right? :)

Amy@RunnersLounge said...

Good incentive and idea - count me in too!

Tom@RunnersLounge said...

We saw this coming, but it's not official until you've announced it. Thanks!

Unknown said...

Nancy, just wanted to stop in and wish you and your family a Merry Christmas. I am back to running and am going to get back to posting on the blog.

J~Mom said...

Yes!!!! I am in. Love it! I have an idea to go with it. I will email you about it.

Christie said...

I am so in. I have a 10mi long run scheduled for that weekend.

Tri+Umph said...

I'm totally in for this one. I should be able to run 9 miles by then!

Bill Carter said...

Sweet Nancy

Thank you so much for keeping all of us runners so engaged. You do realize that it is just about impossible to say no to you, but I may not be able to participate in the 9 on the 9th. Myrtle Beach is on the 16th and I will be heavy into the taper at that point. Hmm... maybe I could split my 9 into a 5 and a 4 or something like that. I could take to the bike like Doug or Marcy, but fell off last time I tried so I will stay on 2 feet instead of 2 wheels... you know that whole lack of coordination thing.

Anyway, Happy holidays to you and your family!

Michelle said...

Count me in!

I do have a race the weekend before, but I should be good to go for the 9th. :-)

Vickie said...

See, it gets contagious! I will plan on it! How about a "Frozen 5k" in January?

Unknown said...

Terrific idea Nancy!!! *flipping my calendar* I am going to mark this and count me in.
Hmmm.. We shall try 31 on the 31st sometimes! Just kidding!!!

Christine said...

I want to do it!! I'm new to the running blog world. Here is my blog http://runninduff.blogspot.com/ Send me some info :) christineduffy@hotmail.com

Drusy said...

I'm in. Its a week after Watford 1/2 marathon race, so I'll be ready to pick up my pace as the countdown to 13 April London Marathon ticks away.

Shelley said...

This works in great with my training schedule for a half in March, so I will join you.

renae said...

I'm in! The cheering from the side lines during the 8th on the 8th was just so incredible! Cow Bells! Signs! I'd hate to let the fans down...and my mansteak of course! I'll be there! ; )
