Jess runs for bacon

     

    My husband doesn't run at all, but he hasn't missed one of my races yet. He's my designated stuff holder and our unofficial official photographer. Smile

     

    He takes great pictures too! -April's friend Jess

    Running for TJ

      I hold bib #2 for a 5K on Saturday morning.

      • Casual runner with nothing to prove.  
      • Dead F'n Last beats Didn't F'n TRY...EVERY F'n DAY!

       

         

        LOL... And you could make up some unrealistic goal for each one! That would be mean. Big grin

         

        That would make TaperBruce (fka bruceD555) tochange his name to OMGBruce.

         

        Hey ... don't think just because I'm tapering I won't see what you're doing here. I feel a bit like Donkey in Shrek when he says "I've got a dragon here and I'm not afraid to use it ... I'm a donkey on the edge."

        Train smart ... race smarter.

          LOL...

           

          I like your new name. It says a lot about you. Big grin

           

          EDIT: I have to say, though, that my taper was more grandiose than your taper... I think that was when I started famous threads such as "Look at me I'm skinny, thanks to BMI" and "I want to retire in an obscure Central American country and run barefoot". Where are YOUR famous taper threads? Big grin

            I'm sneaky and bounce around between threads interjecting myself like a wacked out Mexican jumping bean. That way there's not a single thread that you can hang on me? Today was the I've-got-too-much-time-from-not-running phase of taper that left me sarcastic and finding humor in almost everything.

            Train smart ... race smarter.

                St. Luke's 5K...it'll be the first time NOT running the half since 2007, but I already did my spring half (Danbury), so focusing on the shorter stuff for right now.

                    Half marathon this weekend.  I'm going for sub 2.  I really want it and I'm really nervous about it.  Argh.

                      For you, the nervousness means you are probably going to rock it, 'cuz that's how you roll!

                      Know thyself

                        I'm doing the Illinois Half Marathon in Champaign-Urbana on Saturday (shooting for <2:05:00) and then a 5K back home on Sunday. Will be interesting to see how Sunday's race goes.

                         

                        Hey, you can look for TaperBruce there!

                        But I recommend you keep your distance. You know he's actually quoting lines from Shrek now? God knows what's next.

                            I can see him running by and saying:

                              Tonight both my DD's will be home,  so

                               

                              We'll stay up late telling (wo)manly stories, and in the morning I'm making waffles!

                               

                               

                              Oh, and I'm also running the St. Luke's HM in Allentown on Sunday. Smile

                              5/4/14:  Bucks County Ten Miler

                                Half marathon this weekend.  I'm going for sub 2.  I really want it and I'm really nervous about it.  Argh.

                                 

                                Just visualize seeing that finish line clock starting with "1", that'll keep you on pace....
