Memorial Day Murph is just days away!  We'll start at 8:30am and run heats every 45 minutes after that with the last heat starting at 11:30am.  So we're looking at 8:30, 9:15, 10:00, 10:45, and 11:30am.  We need to know by Wednesday, May 23rd in which heat you'd like to participate in.  The heats have to be balanced out so the sooner you know the better chance you have of securing the spot you want.  NO, YOU CANNOT WAIT UNTIL MEMORIAL DAY TO SEE WHAT TIME YOU FEEL LIKE STROLLING IN.  You have to prepare in advance for this one!  Thanks for your cooperation with this special workout on this special day!
