    I was just going to ask do any of you run 2 laps, I see Ross is in for that. We might consider doing so this Sat. will let you know. What pace are you going Ross?

    Getting there early for 2x (6:40a). Please don't wait for me at 8 if I come around a little late b/c I don't wanna stop. If I time it perfectly then I can hit Smelly Cat around 8:15 and play a game of catch-up for round 2!
