Wow! It seems that Dizzy Ffities has sold out more than 30 days earlier than last year! I will create a waiting list for runners wishing to still run. Those on the waiting list will be notified of their race status on November 1st. For runners wishing to be placed on the waiting list, please forward all info (name, birthdate, address, shirt size, emergency contact, etc.) to my contact e-mail address...firstname.lastname@example.org. I will send a return email with a copy of the waiver that must be agreed to before being allowed to run.

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: 1:33 PM
*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.
