Go Pre!

     

    Nice run Daddyo, really nice run...but I'm not backdating the list anymore. You gots to be in to win.

     

    Sad

      I know, it's a fickle dictatorship. And I'm currently sober.

            Back from vacation.

            Save Cheevers, MTHRFK that's close. Damn. Future race you want to be in for?

             

            Redgraffle. Shake it off, you'll be alright.

             

            Heelgrad, any comments on last weekend's race before I put ink on the result?

             

            Good luck to CodeRunner coming up this weekend as well... 

             

            I think I'm going to give it another go at the St. Michael's half in May.  I like it when the nastiest hill reaches 25 feet. 

              Candice .. congrats on your sub-90 .. and for your fantastic write-up on your blog. It was truly an inspirational read.

               

              Thank you! Smile

              How do you keep your feet on the ground, when you know you were born to fly?

               

              Just a girl who runs.

                I only 1 seconded you last weekend!

                 

                Dude- stop! haha!

                 

                You're running Boston too, right?

                  You're good to go.

                    Running the Oakland Running Festival Half Marathon in about two hours. My training has been reasonable but I wasn't able to hit the paces necessary for 1:30:00 (like a 6-7 mile run at 6:52) so I think I'll be going out at about 7:04 pace, aiming for somewhere between 1:32 and 1:33. That in itself will be a nice PR and is likely a little fast, but I do like to push it.

                     

                    Maybe there will be another half later this year.

                      Finished. Chip time 1:35:24, about 2:30 minute PR, 3rd place in my age group, so I'm happy (no complaining allowed when you get a PR).

                       

                      I'll be looking for another HM later in the year.

                        Nice job on the place and the PR. Progress is progress. Well done.

                          Not sure when it's going to happen, though.  I don't intend to race any HMs until the latter part of 2012.

                          OK, I picked one:

                           

                          CliveF -- 18AUG2012 -- Parkersburg HM (Parkersburg WV)

                          C-R


                            I'm in. 1:32:47 this weekend (down from 1:34:18 two weeks ago) and 12 extra lbs of blubber. Not sure which one I will take a swing but there are several I'm planning to run this year.

                             

                            MTA: WTG Candice for smashing it at Tom King!

                              Go Pre!

                                Dude- stop! haha!

                                 

                                You're running Boston too, right?

                                 

                                Yep - what's your goal? Your 26.2 PR is already below my goal. Boston goal is 3:14 - I know - soft, but I don't want to blow up!
