    looks like several people on the other side "FT" have expressed interest to meet up for food/drinks/chat after the walk or run..... If you are interested let me know so I can keep an integrated list (please dont double register with two names)

  16. Having done the runway run before, it's alot of fun!

    Just make sure to hold your breath when you run down to the departure side of the parallel runway. It's incredible how bad jet fuel exhaust smells when you're running a 5k in 20 minutes!

    I was impressed at how good the air was this year - didn't notice jet fuel smells at all, and usually they're noticeable for at least part of the run. Although, based on this picture, maybe I got high on them and didn't realize it... :)

    I'm sorry I missed the patio afterward - sounds like a fun time! Next year then.

    Well, I'm only about at the centre of this map http://goo.gl/maps/rb6f so must be a takeoff - I'm still touching the ground, after all. :)
