  1. Yikes- no track! Anyone down for running FFX Corner tonight?

  2. I am new to the area(Gainesville) and am training for a couple halfs and a full M in the fall. Recently bought a road bike for cross training. Do you all ride weekly? and are there other beginners in your group?

  3. Hi there,
    We used to ride on Sunday mornings, but haven't really started those rides back up again this season yet. I'm sure we will start those again soon. Until then, we'd love for you to join us for a run! :-)

  4. I would be interested in track on Thursday if anyone wants to go.. Let me know.

  5. Thx Holly, I will try to join you all for a run sometime..will keep an eye on the schedule.

  6. Let me know if anyone is going to run at a track on Thursday & what track and what time. I have to run 6 miles tomorrow and would like to do it on the flat track with other people.

  7. I would be down for track tomorrow too, i think we have 6 miles on the to-do list. I most likely have to work late tomorrow (we have a potential meeting at 5:30) so could we do Fairfax HS?

  8. I'm ok with Fairfax High School.

  9. I am gonna try and show up to run at track tonight as well. I will have Finn - will run as long as I can. So its Fairfax HS but is the time 6:30pm as always?
