Starbucks RUN FOR WOMEN @ UBC

Let's do the Starbucks Run for Women (each at her own pace), and then reward ourselves with lunch! Each participant is responsible to register herself for the race and make payment as required, but we'll meet up before and after the actual race for encouragement and congratulations ... And then go eat afterwards, of course.

There are 5K and 10K options. I personally will be doing the 5K (my first ever!) but you are welcome to do either, at your own pace, and we'll cheer each other on until we're all done and ready to celebrate together.

    Thanks again for posting this Danielle and congrats to all of us. If you have a sec, would you mind posting your link to the online results - I'm having trouble finding it.

    If any ladies have an XL that they want to trade for a L please let me know. :(

    I think we might as well meet up at 8:30, as some of us will already have our kits, and some will need to pick theirs up beforehand. I am emailing my cell number out now, should you have any difficulty locating the group.

    Are we all still meeting at the race kit area at 8am?

    June 4, 2012

  • Christine

    oops let me add to that - send the email to [masked] - that way I have them in my phone to show the RR

    June 4, 2012

  • Christine

    if anyone wants me to pick up their race kit for them please send me an email giving me permission - ie: "I allow Christine to pick up my race kit" - make sure you sign the email (put your name down) I will be going to the RR on Friday morning and getting the kits.

    I personally will be doing the 5k, but do feel free to do either the 5k or 10k options - it won't be too long to wait around and cheer on the 10k'ers! Then we will all celebrate our accomplishments together :)

    Hi Kim, I'm planning to do the 10 k - hope to do it in around 65-70 minutes, or maybe a bit under....

    I'm curious which distance you're all doing. I want to do the 10k but you'll all be waiting a while for me. I'm slow....
