      You may be right

        Hey everyone!  I just wanted to pop in and say hi.  I've been lurking on RA for about a week and figured now is as good as time as any to come out of my shell.  The penguin thread seems like a good place to start so here I am.   Big grin      

         

        Don't believe everything you think.

            Jerry is trying to woop up on me because his 5k PR is softer than my derriere and was probably Made 3 weeks into his running career.  His long slow runs are faster than my fastest EVER runs.  Haha.  Nice try Jerry Wink 

             

            Welcome nightcrawler!  Do you like to fish by chance?  With a user like nightcrawler... Just curious haha.

             

            Today was my last trails class.  Ran 4+ miles in pouring down rain, muddy, water puddles, (lakes). Felt like true trail running today.  It was fun but yeah I was soaked to the bone.

             

            Good luck Kristin!

              Thanks for the luck everyone! It worked..... I KILLED my 10K! Clock time 1:08:2X, don't know my chip time yet....won't be too far off from that because it wasn't a huge race and didn't take that long to cross start. I was hoping for less than 1:15. and since I don't run with a Garmin I'm not sure, but it is actually possible that I unofficially PRed my 5K, or came really close, on the way. Writing my RR during commercials of the Giants game.

              PRs:   5K- 28:16 (5/5/13)      10K- 1:00:13 (10/27/13)    4M- 41:43 (9/7/13)   15K- 1:34:25  (8/17/13)    10M- 1:56:30 (4/6/14)     HM- 2:20:16 (4/13/14)

                        Afternoon, pens Smile I think I'm finally coming out of the moping phase of being broken, although it could just be that I was able to run two days in a row with minimal achiness, AND bench pressed 50 lbs 3x5 without worrying about smashing my face in today Big grin Counting down the hours until I can go to the doc and start figuring out what's wrong with the leg - only 4 more days! I did manage 20 minutes in a light snow/30F this afternoon, ran to and from work after lifting to check on an experiment. Good for 11 points in the winter running game, I think I should get an extra point or two for wearing shorts :P

                         

                        Nice job Kristin! Big grin 

                        I like to run, and when I don't have a hernia I pick things up and put them down.

                          9.5 mile run today with DW at a 10:30 penguin pace.  Felt great and conditions were perfect.  Lots of runners out today on the bike path.  29 mile week works for me. and only one indoor run.

                           

                          Scott:  Have a Shiner for me.
