EclipseCon Exercise 2008

This morning I received my last update of the runners who have indicated that they would like to be part of the inaugural EclipseCon Exercise. We have an astounding 114 people who will be doing some running at EclipseCon this year. Awesome!

My plan is to run on each day of the conference: Monday through Thursday.
I would like to invite you to join me on any of the runs that work for your schedule. I am not even sure I will make them all :-)

On Monday - 6 am Early run since tutorials start earlier and lunch is too short.
On Tuesday - 7am and Noon
On Wednesday - 7am and Noon
On Thursday - 7am and Noon

The course (which I have run in past years) is an out and back on a nearby paved trail that follows a river channel. The route map is here. As shown in the picture above, the course is flat.

This makes it easy for all different paces to share the same course while varying the distances to match the amount of time you wish to spend running.

I would encourage us to start together gathering in the front lobby of the conference hotel, the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara.
I have some running goodies to distribute as door prizes for each day.
We will be leaving promptly at the stated time so please be 5 minutes early.
Out on the run we can naturally settle into pace groups to enjoy the fresh air, training and conversation.

If you are signed up or still want to join and have any questions don't hesitate to send me an email or post a comment here.

We have people from many different countries and companies and I have no idea how many different Eclipse projects are represented. Things we will have to find out on the run.
Talk about diversity!
