    Happy New Year

     

    Started the year with  24.5km run.  More heavy rain, damn this summer down under.

    Rest day tomorrow, so heading out for a 6km walk with my son and dad.

    Imminent Catastrophe

      Nice Pukekura!

      4 Mile Midnight Run in Central Park complete with fireworks and champagne at the aid station! 6000 runners and twice that many spectators, it was quite a lot of fun.

       

      Now everyone go check out the YTD Distance graphs!

        Ouch - and today is supposed to be a rest day for me.... but that zero looks real round! Nice to see the bunny on 0.1 miles though!

         

        Happy New Year All!

        2013 Goals
        1) Break 1:50 in a HM (PR 1:52:19)

          I'm winning Big grin, probably for not much longer, but I will take it.

           

          That midnight run sounds cool, PerfesserR.  Wish we had something like that around here.

                  Hi everybody -

                   

                  3 mile recovery run for me today - well really a "walk/run" with DH (his first in a year). It was the perfect distance and speed for my legs after yesterday's tough 12-miler.

                   

                  Your midnight run sounds like soo much fun, Russ. When I lived in Sacramento, there was a similar (but smaller) event that looped around the state Capitol building. I've missed that since moving here.

                   

                  I saw this today - thought I'd share:

                  Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

                      Happy new year everyone! 6 miler in 25 mph winds.

                       Was the wind at your back at any point? That makes it more fun.

                      Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

                        Happy New Year all, started 2012 off with a crowded 5k today.  Hopefully this will be my most consistent year running yet.

                          HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE Wink

                           

                          Sorry, still haven't managed to get everything done in a day. This semester I'm taking two courses. I have a quote hanging right above my laptop: "Run the day or the day runs you." I'm hoping it will help me take control of my day. And get my runs/workouts in.

                           

                          Anyone have some nice running goals for this year?

                          Dutchie
                          I go running in the early morning, before my brain figures out what I'm up to.

                          Run the day, or the day runs you.

                            Hi everyone! I'm new to this group and 2000k is really my stretch goal after 1000 miles, but I figured I'd give it a shot. I started out the year this morning with a 5 mile steady run followed by a few fast striders.

                            I ran. I ran until my muscles burned and my veins pumped battery acid. Then I ran some more.

                             

                             

                            Future Goals: 5:30 mile • 19:30 5k • 33:30 8k • 42:00 10k • 1:15:00 10-mile • 1:40:00 half-marathon • 1000 miles

                              Anyone have some nice running goals for this year?

                               

                              Hi Dutchie!

                              No big defined goals for me like I had last year. This year I just want to keep working my plan: avg 35 mpw and rotate my Saturday long run distances from 10-16. It will be an accomplishment if I could just maintain that for a year.

                               

                              I'm going to sign up for the shorter distance events in the RootsRockRun trail series with no goal times attached since I have very little experience with trail racing/running. I really enjoyed the Spooky 12K they put on last October though and expect these will be exhilarating as well.

                                I was slow to get on the board so I decided to go big today and get out in front of the bunny.  Nice to see some fresh faces here this year, welcome everybody and good luck.
