So we're finally back at Drake tomorrow morning. We're gonna step out of our comfort zone a bit and mix it up with this collectors edition PTC subway run. This is also a great time to come back to HNL if it's been awhile. Here's how it works: each "line" is about 1.5 miles long. We need to divide into three equally sized groups and each group will run their respective line. When we return from the segment, each runner chooses a different line. Three lines, three options. Come for one, stick around for them all, leave after the middle, whatever you want. Part of the goal here is to get folks into mixed groups on each segment so don't get too used to your first segment group. Mix it up. Starbucks after! Free coffee for the top five most expensive single coffee drinks you can dream up during the run.
Good luck to our HNL Chattanooga Half Ironman competitors on Sunday! Way to get after it! Yall have applied some serious commitment to the task (and some crazy haircuts), good luck!
Here is the map:
Here are the times:
6:30 - 1st Segment
7:05 - 2nd Segment
7:40 - 3rd Segment
Yes, front to backs will happen. Be aware of this in your groups and don't forget anyone!

How’s your day? Wanna
make it awesome? Do something nice for someone before the sun goes down today. It doesn’t have to be life changing, just
nice and on purpose. Enjoy the fact that
you’ve got a pretty great life and relatively few problems. Spreading kindness helps make the world a
better place. It helps us realize happiness
exists in the moments of life rather than a destination we reach when some arbitrary
checklist is completed. Keep being the
awesome people you are!
NEW LOCATION for the run tomorrow. One of my favorites! We’ll meet at Brooks Elementary located at
119 Price Road, Brooks, GA 30205. There
will be two options:
6:30 – 30 min out and back
7:00 – 10K Loop
Make an effort to make it out to Brooks tomorrow. I promise you won’t regret
it. The scenery is always gorgeous. When
I was in Orlando earlier today, a kid in line was telling his dad what he thought
of Disney. The kid said, “It was awesome
and beautiful.” Here’s to awesome and
beautiful tomorrow morning! Happy Mother's Day to the moms!

Weather is gonna be awesome for the run tomorrow. Good luck to all the tri people tomorrow. Gonna be a cold swim but the rest will be great. We're gonna try something a bit weird tomorrow so you're gonna wanna show. We will meet at Oak Grove again for two loops. Please bring some girls deodorant as the Bloom Closet has put out a request for such. They help foster kids in Fayette and they're awesome. If we could get them 31 sticks, that would be great. We've already got 5! Also, plan to bring your phone on one or more loops tomorrow. I'm asking for each person to take at least one five or ten second clip and at least one still photo during the run. Come back to this page after the run tomorrow and email them to me: firstname.lastname@example.org I'm gonna see how easy it is to put something together.
Here is the info, we're sleeping in tomorrow cause we need the light. The more artistic and weird your photos/clips are, the better!
7:00 - 45 min
7:45 - 45 min
