Saturday, I drove up to Mooresville for the Volition Preview Group run II. Whitney, the race director, and Todd, the Charlotte Running Company manager for the Mooresville store, along with Dennis, owner of Queen City timing, have been organizing these monthly group runs over the expected race course.
We left the Food Lion on Brawley School Rd. around 7:30 and headed out toward the point. If you read my previous post, you will remember that the course runs down toward the lake. There are three small neighborhood loops near turn around. Then, everyone heads straight back to the start.
While Saturday morning was again extremely warm, Todd, Dennis, and Whitney made sure everyone in the group had multiple opportunities to hydrate with four water stops along the course route. Two of the stops had Nuun as well.
Equally exciting was to see the size of the preview run group take a huge jump. More people are hearing about this race.
From what I heard, they are planning two more preview runs. There will be an August edition and a September edition. Potentially, the September run will be a simulator run over the first 10 miles with a 3 mile cool down back to the start.

See you at the next preview run in Aug,
