Egg Nog Jog -- is anyone doing this?

Postby Terrific Whatzit » Wed Oct 10, 2012 11:44 am

I saw an email earlier re: price increase on Oct 16.

I'm considering it but it's way out in nowhere-ville. If I'm the only I know there, it's less tempting.

I fully intend to be there, and to register before the 16th. With stripes on.
I noticed at least 3 maniacs already signed up as of this morning. Great race!
next up:


This broken wing will fly again
One fine day
This blackbird's mute gonna sing again
One fine day

So all you sinners come out
And all you drunkards crawl out
Come into the light of one fine day

I'm already registered, btw I live just past no-where-ville, it's very nice up here!!!

Don't miss this race! It is one that you will never forget and you will want to do again.
This will be my 9th time doing it in a row. Still shooting for sub 40.

I meant to say "scenic pristine wilderness-ville" :)

It is an hour+ drive from where I live (urban jungle that is Toronto) so carpooling might nice.

I am in but will be at the back of the pack with a flask of rum!

I found the perfect excuse not to race this one , doing this guy http://www.runningmania.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=45853 a week earlier.

I love the Nog Jog its just so festive and fun and only really two hills , one up and one down.

You can't beat my time if you're sitting on a fence!
Anyways I am all signed up.
I have a guaranteed shirt size and the price hasn't yet gone up!
All that will change in a couple of days.

One fine day
This blackbird's mute gonna sing again
