I am sorry for the late post on packet pick up! Race packets may be picked up on Friday November 20th from 10am till 7pm at Fleet Feet Huntsville and at the pavilion on the morning of the race beginning at 5:30am.
See you at the starting line!
What's with the Name
*All the loops and turns should be enough to make anyone dizzy :) Actually, its not really that bad on the turns, but 5 southern loops and 5 northern loops does tend to make one's head spin a bit.
Local time: 7:47 AM
*It's named in honor of my new Border Collie, Dizzy. I have a great Labrador Retriever, Miles, and he runs with me, but at 90 lbs, he gets tuckered out after about 3-4 miles. Dizzy is my next hope for a 'trail dawg'.
*A dog we kept for a friend, was named Trane, for John Coltrane. In keeping with that, when we decided to get a Lab, we named him Miles, for Miles Davis, a contemporary of Coltrane's. Also, I wanted a running companion, so that sorta worked too. So Dizzy is of course named for Dizzy Gillespie. We're pretty jazzed up about both of them.
