It looks like the group registration is really geared towards businesses sponsoring their employees to participate (i.e. as part of a health or charity initiative) rather than friends and social groups. We need a sponsoring group to pay 50% of the registration to set it up, which I don’t think we’ll be able to get DCUI to do, especially since the only folks to confirm so far have already registered. :frowning:

I have not run in 3 weeks, I’ve been away, my run buddy is M. I. A. I’m actually worried about him. But I digress, las Saturday I ran my first event in over a year…. Thanks 2020 :disappointed:

It was only a 5k but man 3 weeks off sure hurt my time and my body

Got a pretty cool shirt and medal though

The real reason people do races. :laughing:

But congrats on the run! And the shirt and medal!

Taking three weeks off before a race is just tapering harder than anyone else. :laughing:

That is a sweet logo! Nice job getting out there despite the break in running! Hope it was a fun race even if it wasn’t your best.

If you’re interested, please add it to the July Run Log. You can even double dip and count it as Nanaue’s Independence Day 5k Beach Fun Run if you want to register for some sweet downloads. (Not nearly as cool as the stopwatchermelon, but it’s good to have art goals as well as run goals.)

My running update is that I recently realized that many of the Doctor Who audio shows from Big Finish are available on Apple Music with my subscription. I’ve listed to 6 shows so far involving Doctors 5-8. Later they pull in more. I alternate running to a Doctor Who then to music. I’ve got a lot of Doctor Who miles ahead of me.

Oh, nice! Does it have the old ('66, '76, '85, '93, and '96) stories, or just the “modern” era (post 2003ish)? I’ll have to see if those are available on anything I subscribe to.

I used to be pretty in to building the “perfect” running playlist for every type of run, but since the clip broke on my MP3 player I’ve been getting lazier about it. (Maybe that’s what I need to motivate me?) Nowadays I usually hit something from SiriusXM streaming when I run outside (ideally LSUG if I get out early enough to catch Kelly’s show), or watch something on Disney+ (subtitled, so as not to wake the wifey) if I’m inside on the treadmill.

Do we need a run mix thread?

Actually, these are original audio stories that Big Finish began producing in the late 90s, starting with the actual actors for Doctors 5-7, they then added the 8th Doctor, and eventually got series with Matt Smith, David Tenent and more. They are still producing them, those on The Apple subscription go up to about 5 years ago. Maybe 100 in all between the different series. The company does some other properties too like Blake’s 7 and Dark Shadows

Winter time on treadmill I catch up on a lot of shows. Used to do subtitles, then bought the Roku with headphone Jack in the remote.

Not sure if anyone here has ever been to Dragon Con but they have a virtual race this year. All proceeds are being donated to Big Brother Big Sister of Atlanta. And you get a cool medal!

Oh cool. My sister in law is planning her Dragon Con schedule right now! Looks like registration is closed for the race, though?

I registered last night and it was open. I think you need to say how many tickets you want to get for the race before it let’s you go to the full registration page.

@Row.Harper That Dragon Con Medal looks awesome.

I’ve been out of practice. Unfortunately, I haven’t run in weeks. I’m going to get back on it though.

My knees have really been aching at night. Running anyway, may need to check into getting better shoes.
