    Age group awards are nice and all.... but there ain't nothin' like actually crossing the string. 

     

    Since this is the official thread for bragging I can say here, and maybe only here!, that I won a half marathon today, and I had to fight hard to do it, making it all the more satisfying.  It's not a real large race, and a lot of people stay away because the weather in January in Kansas is a total crapshoot, but nevertheless I beat everyone who showed up today to race with a 28 mph (no kidding) wind blowing out of the NW.  Mostly it was at our back, but there were about 4 miles net where we had to run west, including the final mile, and it was a mother.  And the course is very hilly to boot. Feelin' good this evening.

     

    Nice. Everytime I sign up for a small race I think I can win, there's some other joker thinking the same thing. Except that dudes always just a bit faster...

      Joe, Way.To.Go!

       

      You beat the people who didn't show up, too!

      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

        Thanks for the kind words, guys!

                This isn't a post regarding what I did for the day....

                This is a post regarding what my FIL did yesterday.

                He's 65+ years old, and began running in September, 2011.  He never ran a day in his life prior to that time.  He wasn't very active (athletically) during the first 63+ years of his life.  He's an academic type of guy.

                 

                Yesterday, according to his Garmin, he ran 26.2 miles in 5:11:28.  He did it for fun (not a race).

                He's the type of guy that motivates me and reminds me that I can do whatever I put my mind toward.  His resume and CV is filled with challenges that seem impossible, and only recently stumbled upon an athletic challenge.

                 

                "Prof Bob" is a RockStar!  He's not a forum contributor (or reader), so I'm posting for him.

                2014 Goals:

                #1: Do what I can do. <DOING>

                #2: 365 Hours training <NOPE, INJURED>

                      Goals for 2014:

                      Sub-3:30 marathon; run for a year free from major injuries or interruptions

                      PRs: 3:27 marathon; 1:41 half; 45:07 10K; 23:26 5K; 6:02 mile; <12 parsecs Kessel Run


                      The Irreverent Reverand

                        It's not a calendar month, but today I hit 200 miles for the past 30 days. First time I've ever done that.

                         

                        I'm ramping up my mileage and feeling great. Hansons Marathon Method has been a great plan for me, and this group has been so helpful for running tips and good stories (such as what kind of band aids to put on my nipples, and learning to keep my shoes loose to avoid foot and calf pain).

                         

                        Thanks, all!

                            200 miles in 30 days is outstanding.  I wish I could do something like that.  My small victory will lead to what I hope is a big loss.  I did NOT eat 1/2 a jar of nutella today or yesterday.  A streak is beginning.
