When: Saturday, February 1, 8:00am
Where: Howard County Community College
What: Club Challenge workout
That's right, tomorrow is the Club Challenge workout. As stated in the email, we will be starting at 8:00am AT the start line. The parking lot is at the Physical Education Building, an address for you GPS/Googlers/MapQuesters:
10600 Hickory Ridge Rd
The start line is a little over a quarter mile up the road (Hickory Ridge) from the parking lot.
For rookies and veterans alike, the Club Challenge course can often leave you befuddled and turned around - particularly in the neighborhood in the middle of the race. We obviously don't run here often, and everything looks the same. I'm going to try to drive the course in the morning and mark it in some capacity, and also make note of the mile markers. If I can't (or even if I can), it's still a good idea to take a look at the map and possibly print one out. We always do our best to look out for one another, but sometimes it gets tough. The trickiest parts are between miles 4 and 6, and then again just after mile 7 when you enter a small path for about a hundred meters.

If you're looking to carpool, I'd suggest asking some of the people you know if they're going to the workout. If you don't really know anybody, use the comments below.
