Running choices

So Jelly, Frankie and I were having an email exchange going today, each of us trying to talk the other into doing various races. No one seems to want to do the HBC 10K on Canada Day (July 1). I was mulling over a quick 5K after work on July 14, but no one else seems to be takers. Frankie's pitching a 30K (19 miler) race on Aug 19 that starts at 8 p.m. and ends in the dark, something about running with glowsticks.. I'm actually considering it now, cause it's the same weekend in which I'm supposed to do a 19 mile long run. Jelly probably won't do it, cause her mileage won't be up to that distance by then. Then, of course, there's the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront half marathon that Jelly and I have signed up for, but Frank's not sure if he's in.

Anyways, in short, it looks like the three of us (pictured left) may not race together again until Chicago... But that's The Big Race, right?

Ran my preprogrammed run today of about 5.5K (more than 3 miles).

Off topic, but Jelly has apparently tagged me, but i'm the kid without another friend to tag, so I'll just answer the questions.

i like this tag thing. guess it only for bloggers. really at a motel at the tip of lake superior. that nice. funny i don't even chek the site of the place where i work. in fact, i never ever look at it. btw, i hate the word verification thing. and why does the blogospehere use illegible script?
