Posting up the regular Sunday SBUX run. I will NOT be there this week, but feel free to use this thread to organize this week's run. Next week (05/06) I have 24 MILES on the docket, so PLEASE come out then and give me some company!

Here are the details. Please reply to this post if you're showing up and if you're adding on extra miles, what your plans are. Thanks!

WHAT: 12 mile run (others often add on more mileage beforehand)

WHEN: Sunday, 04/29/12 @ 8:30am PDT (this is the start time for the 12 mile run)

WHERE: SBUX on NW 23rd @ Overton

ROUTE: One of you will have to devise the route this week. I recommend Terwilliger. :)

PACE: All paces welcomed and encouraged. Up front tends to average about 7:15-7:30/mile, starting off slower and finishing up faster.

Who's in?

THE OLDER I GET, THE BETTER I WAS.

PROUD TO BE A PAFAR!

I'll be there for half marathon training. Funny story: I had a $60 gift certificate from Terrapin Events, so I signed up for the Cinco de Mayo Half, since the 5k and 10k were less than $60, and I wanted my money's worth :whistle: (Cinco de Mayo, in turn, will merely be a training run for the Rock 'n' Roll Portland Half later in the month) :homestar:

I am seriously considering making my second appearance at this run. If there is anyone else in the 8:30-9:00 ish (plus:-) range who is also considering please post here!

I might be interested in the slower pace--I haven't been doing enough long runs.

Kate--were you thinking 12? I might want to turn back a little bit early.

I will be there! Terwilliger sounds like a nice idea but how about running the whole spring water corridor? Flat, straight and no turns! Does that sound fun to anyone else? Just kidding. I will do whatever course the majority picks.

Terwilliger would be ok. I'm not too concerned with the course, I'm just afraid if I don't get some long runs in, I'll burst into flames around the 9-mile mark of the race :frantics: :tongue:

Yes, I'll be there. I think we should wait for Melissa to come back before we run terwilliger.

I'll be in Eugene this weekend trying to race a non-stealth, half marathon. Next time I show up we're running Terwilliger - those hills are nothing compared to the ones on Whidbey Island. Challenge accepted.

What? Pace me to a respectable time. You'll probably see me along the side of the course at mile 11.5 with my hands on my knees, wheezing.

Here's the route. We'll have to figure out a bit of a variation to add a mile since this one is starting from my house.
BTW, I'll be adding a 2M warmup, any takers?
