    If I post in that sticky thread, it's a guarantee that I will be injured and have to DNS.

     

     

    Yeah, I sort of had the same superstition. I'm a bit reluctant to say too much of anything about upcoming races for that reason, but I guess I am hanging out in the wrong place to hold back too much on that kind of thing.

            Uffda

              Run for the Lakes HM in Nisswa, MN on Saturday. Hoping for a HUGE PR (13 minute).

                 Yeah, and I don't even have the excuse of tapering! Is taper madness contagious?

                 

                 

                Yes. I'm pretty sure I'm driving my cube-mate CRAZY because all I'm talking about is the race on Sunday. And I'm drinking lots of water so I'm constantly back and forth from the kitchen to my desk, and to the bathroom from my desk.

                 

                I'm really annoying. LOL.

                  What's your current PR? If I PR'd by 13 minutes I'd hit 2:00:00 on the nose which would rock my socks off, but that ain't happening this weekend. Smile

                    Spring Cleaning 10k on Saturday.  Cheapest race ever.  $5 for running club members!  Gotta love that price. It's a no frills race.  They didn't print a shirt for this race.  They are showing up with the leftovers from the past races for you to choose from.  Get it?  "Spring cleaning"...Wink

                     

                    Have FUN everyone!!!

                      A friend teaches at an elementary school, and she is the RD for her first race which is a 5k Saturday. I have a hip flexor issue so won't be running hard unless 1 of her 3rd graders is ahead of me.


                      Sloooow.

                        5K on Saturday at Festival International. Not looking to beat my measly slow PR, as I have hardly run outside lately, and I've wrecked my legs with work-out DVD's this week, lol.

                         

                        Good luck to all racers!

                          I am not superstitious though, I just like seeing my chicks hatch before I count them, ya dig?

                                I ran a 5k in March that had some kids in it. This one kid, maybe 8 or 9 years old, would stop to walk, and every time he'd hear me come up behind him he'd start sprinting again and pass me, then stop to walk, etc. He kept dodging out in front of me. I kind of wanted to kick him in the face after a few minutes of that.
