        Good job to everyone, big and small accomplishments, it all adds up! I ran my longest run ever today - 15 miles in 2:14:23! Only 11 more miles to go!! Yikes! (my marathon is in 4 weeks!)
          Been doing c25k on and off since June.  Hit the 5k mark yesterday 

          Do what you want, just how you like. Nobody has to know.

            Great job everybody!

             

            I've got nothing small or big to report.  Just slogging along and rebuilding base but this thread inspires me to keep on going!

              4 minute 10k PR today!    1:00:18 and Garmin and chip exactly the same...how often does that happen? 

               

              But talk about going out too fast and falling apart...check out my splits...*snort*  I need to learn how to slow the "F" down while racing.

              Total Field place of 523 out of 1007.  No gender or age group breakdown on the race results. Just the entire field. Weird.

               

                congrats on the pr RFC!    too bad you dont live in the Seattle area.  just heard of a Nov. trail race called Mud & Chocolate where they have chocolate aid stations, chocolate medals, & drawings for ..... you guessed it, chocolate.  You could change your name to Runsforchocolate.  My small victory today was hitting the 30mpw again after sufferring what turned out to be a minor soleus tear on last mile of my 8k last Sat. (still had pr) took 2 days off & have been doing some treatment each day this week.  Was very concerned but appears to be ok afterall.  5 days to hit 30mpw, usually takes 6 days.
                  I just surpassed the 100 mile per month mark AND second week in a row of 30 plus for the week.

                   

                  The pain that hurts the worse is the imagined pain. One of the most difficult arts of racing is learning to ignore the imagined pain and just live with the present pain (which is always bearable.) - Jeff

                    Hit 91 miles this month.  That's the most since April 2008.  Between health issues and work, it's been a crazy year and a half.

                              guess I'll have to throw my small victory into the hat as well.  Today's run put me over 100+ 3mths in row & Sept. (123.6) highest in my 2nd career as a runner.  I'll be 54 on Friday.  RA & this thread definitely motivating me.
