Needs more cowbell!

    I am the first person not already over the finish line, heh! I thought about going the extra 1.8 to get there, but I ran 10 miles just 3 days ago and I barely had it in me to do today's 8. All this snow is really wearing on me. Tomorrow I will definitely reach 1500.

    I shoot pretty things! ~

    '14 Goals:

    • 6 duathlons (1 Olympic distance)

    • 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)

          No HTFU points for you today. Still time for a short double for a 5k on the dreadmill.

              Blush Way to go Kirsten! A great achievement. So this year has seen your highest mileage, your first marathon and many other achievements too - well done. I can't help but think back a few years to when I first crept onto this site and received such enormous encouragement from you (I think you were on the C25K at the time - how things change!). This is really just a soppy post to say "thanks Kirsten" and to congratulate you on all that you have done. You make me smile, you make me run when I don't feel like it and I know I'm not the only one. Well done girl. Tom x

                Heh heh Big grin BTW - well done on the 1500+ Zoom. You with me for 2000 in '09? Purdey you better not hope the Swamp discovers your softer side. That can only lead to disaster.

                    Evil grin Yeah, thanks Tom! Big grin I'm not planning on 2k for '09...I think I'm going to split the difference and go for 1750 (following my current trend...last year I ran about 1325). Then maybe 2k for '10. I'm thinking about going Monkey in '10, too, so that would be appropriate. Smile

                      Sounds like you'll have a nice snowy run to get you to 1500! Smile

                        Nice...snowy? Those things should not go together...at least not until AFTER the first day of Winter. Meh. Angry

                          True. Getting a head start on something like that isn't always a good thing. BUT...you'll conquer it all with ease!

                            But if you end up running way more miles because you have the treadmill (and are thus able to hop on for that spontaneous 8-miler at 10pm that you wouldn't normally be able to do), are you still a pussy? The electrician is installing a dedicated 20-amp circuit today for my treadmill. If this is the solution to the treadmill issues I've been having, there will come a great and fearful onslaught of mileage, and woe unto she who would dare to pussify those of us who unleash the Great Hammer of Thor without ever leaving the house. Yes Or something like that.

                            On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
