It's Plug Time

No not hair plugs for men (although it has crossed my mind a few times).

I'm talking about local races on wheels and foot.

First off, it's the VA BAR Suffolk Weekend Kickoff (sounds like a good name, huh?). Saturday, March 15th is time for the VBW Smackdown. No taps-outs allowed here as Joshua and the VA Beach Wheelmen bring back the old crit course back to life in the Sleepy Hole section of Suffolk.
Registration on Bikereg.

There's no time to recover as you slip into the skinsuit and bring out the carbon fiber deep dish bling wheels on your TT rig for the Dismal Dash Time Trial presented by All About Bikes Racing on Sunday the 16th. If you done this race before, it's called Dismal for a reason. It's truth time and we'll see who's been slacking on the couch this winter. Chip timing will continue this year by Kale Running.

Speaking of Kale Running, you haven't spotted me on the bike in the past 3 weeks because I'm pounding the pavement to get ready for some races (on foot). Kale Running is sponsoring the East Beach 1/2 Marathon and 5k race on Feb 2nd. I'll be doing the 5k to get some speedwork in and to kick off the running season. The wife is doing the Shamrock 8k on March 15th and I'll do that to support her (and to drink the sponsor's beverage - Yuengling - after the race). Next up is the Dismal Swamp 1/2 Marathon in April.
All this running stuff can be found on my new running blog - Blistered Toes.

Race season is upon us.
