Summer Running Series Pt 2: Shelton 10K

Following what will be our success at Part 1 of the race series, we will repeat and surpass that performance 3 weeks later in Shelton, however this time the distance is twice as far. My recollection of this the last time I did this was wanting to die by the end. The course is mostly flat, except for a long hill at the beginning. As of writing this, I can barely run 6 mi so this should be lots of fun.

Here's the link for the race:
Registration is $20. If we want we can form a team, in which case registration will be only $15.

Oh and if anyone knows of races in the area they want to do we can add them to the series, just let me know.

    The setup is looking really good. They have American flags lining the last half mile...lotta floaty things to jump on. For those running, the first road is pretty much all up hill, second road goes back down, then the last 3 miles is rather straight. Once you start seeing the flags youre about half a mile out and there is a slight down hill so take advantage ofi t

    I liked Forcing Finish Line, so that's what I went with. Just a reminder, needs to follow the link and register by midnight thursday. When you are registering, select join a team and then select our team name from the pull down. It's pretty obvious what to do.

    Agreed. Boring. Hmmm.
    We could go for a sneaky pun like Ultimate Runners, or Ultimate Speed, or Take No Breaks. Or lamezord like Disk Dashers, Speed-D-ers, Forcing Finish Liners, Backhand ballers, Push Passers, Push Pull Pop, I'll sleep on it.

    I'm going to set up a team today. Everyone will need to register by thursday night, otherwise they will have to register on race day. Any suggestion for team names? Sticking with the Norwalk Whalers seems boring.
