Hey team 9! Here is the place to introduce yourselves! Let's get to know each other!Also, we need a team name and captain! Any ideas?
I'm Zelanie, and I've been running for almost 2 years now, and am hoping that 2014 is the year that I complete my first full marathon. I spend more time over on RA than RWOL, but hope that we can get a Facebook group for our team. How about you guys?
PRs: 5K: 25:35 / 10K: 53:03 / 10mi: 1:26:15 / HM: 1:55:02

Zelanie - I designate you as a mentor for that newbie LRB on our team to the mileage game.
This upcoming year will be my second year playing. Keeps me disciplined. My primary goal this year is to continue to improve my 10K time in the Peachtree Road Race.

Lord knows I am going to need it!
My name is Rick, I run and drink and do stuff (not necessarily in that order). 2014 will be my fourth year running.

I started running about 5 years ago and this is my second year in the game. I ran my first marathon in October and plan to run out again in 2014. My goal for the spring is to set a half marathon pr and finally break the 2 hour barrier.
Hey all. I've been running since freshman year of high school (2001) on and off but I've been consistent and tracking mileage since March 2009. 2013 was a rebuilding year for me as I had a baby boy in march. I'm just getting my mileage back to 30 and starting half marathon training tomorrow for a April race and then hopefully a full in the fall.
PRs: 5k - 22:29, half marathon - 1:47:39
I'm Ray, and I have been running about 18 months. I'm 44 and a hillbilly from TN.
I run early mornings so I can get my 2-3 hours of the post-run "warm fuzzies" to start my day. I'm totally addicted and make no excuses for it.
I love sponge cake.
How do you know what team you're in? I thought I had signed up. Or am I in the same team?
Santa Anita Derby Day 5k - 5 Apr
Mountains to Beach Marathon - 25 May
Jack- I wish you were! There is a team assignment thread, but it's been getting buried under the individual team threads. Looks like you are team 3. I wish you guys luck, until we meet in the Head to Head! But I am glad that you're playing this year. Last year was my first time and it has been so much fun. Except that the year is almost over!
LRB- We will be on your case to make sure you're getting your stretching done so that you can get those miles in!
Hiya, Bozydeco, Peacemaker (Collective Soles represent! Woot!), MArunnergirl, and Ray! I've seen many of you around the forums and am looking forward to getting to know you better.
The RWOL thread looks like it's leaning towards having a Facebook group. I tried to create one but apparently I have to be friends with at least one of you on Facebook first.
Zelanie you can send me a friend request on fb if you want then set up the group.
Yay! Here is the group.
What of those not on fb?
In the past, people either create a FB account just for their running alter ego, or they keep in touch via the forums. Usually the teams have threads on RA and RWOL, but the FB groups have more action.
I will get mine here if that's okay?

This looks like a fun team! Can I buy my way in? I have $100,000 I got as change fom the grocery store !
I'm so vegetarian I don't even eat animal crackers!
