Tori Runs in PA


Pittsburgh RN!

    2 mile...slow, steady and snowy!! lol

     

     

    I loved my first time out with my Garmin FR10 however, I am having issues uploading my data onto the GarminConnect web site. I have been sitting here trying for quite a while now. :-( I downloaded the plug-in....my garmin is plugged in and turned on...it does not find my device when it hit 'search for device" . UGHH

    Do or do not, there is no try.

      Good morning all.

       

      Swamped here at work as I am trying to cram 5 days of work into 2 since I leave for Florida on Wednesday.  I can't wait to see my parents!

       

      Our weather here sucks, as Tori mentioned how cold it is, and of course we are on the fringe of that storm with getting next to nothing or alot of snow just in time for my flight out.  Needless to say, I am not thrilled with that.  I guess I am just hoping that the roads are cleared by the time I have to leave for the airport.

       

      Saturday I had my longest run yet of 8 miles, that I unfortunately, had to do on the treadmill because it was so crappy out.  I did learn, however, that my laptop fits nice and snuggly onto the control panel, so I watched "Spirit of the Marathon" on Netflix while I ran.

       

      This upcoming Saturday is my first 10K and I am very excited for it to come already!  My goal is to finish.  I figure that is nice and plain and simple.  After that one, then I have something to work with and shoot for at future 10K's.  But I will just try my best and enjoy running somewhere different.  Does this count as a destination race?

       

      Awood- You are going to do great in Chicago!!!!   Don't worry about the weather just yet.

       

      Kristin- Enjoy the SRD!

       

      Philliefan- Yuck on poop hitting the fan.....I am sure I will have the pleasure of coming back to some of that myself next week.  Hope you figured it all out painlessly.

       

      Scotty- I don't know how you do it with your race reports and running.  I am lucky to put one foot in front of the other!!!  Kitty is so cute!

       

      Jblack- Sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite!

       

      Trod- Ahhhh the joy of T-ball......I miss having one so young, but do NOT miss T-ball! LOL  I had 1 in Tball and 1 in 9-10 softball at the same time and that was THE worst!!!!!!

       

      Damaris- I really loved your thread regarding your real RR's.

       

      Pewpewpew- I had yet to "meet" you on here as I am new, but it's nice to finally meet you.

       

      Zelanie- Great job on your run!!!!!!!

       

      Hopesmom- Glad to read you enjoyed yourself!  I am soooooo looking forward to warming up a bit too!  Have a good time with the quartet.

       

      OK....gotta work....

        Awood, don't fret th weather, it's still too far out.

         

        P3, hope your legs loosen up later.

         

        Hope, glad you had a great vacation.

         

        Kristin, enjoy the rest, you've earned it.

         

        Margo, glad your mobiles are still rolling along.

         

        Jimmy, I'm on nights this week too, and likely for the rest of the month. Did you see my post that I'm registered for the Rumpshaker?

         

        Zel, nice running the course, not sure if I would, I think kind of superstitous about it. When I ran my half a couple weeks ago, someone had told me there were hills, and although my Garmin's elevation shows there was, I never noticed them. I also heard someone talking after the race about the hills, and I was like, did they run a different course than me? Haha, not sure, but I think my training hill is so much steeper, that others must feel like small speed bumps. Anyways, now you know what to expect.

         

        After 2 double digit LR's back-to-back, I'll do something easy today, maybe I'll take the pup with me. I also have an appointment with the lung doctor for a checkup on the fungal spots.

          Tori, do you have admin privileges on the computer you're using?  I had the same message, but I don't have admin privileges, which means the connect thing will never work for me.

          When it's all said and done, no one remembers how far we have run.  The only thing that matters is how we have loved.

              URD for me yesterday, I was a lil upset at first, but then I reminded myself that I'm tapering anyway, so no big deal, right? Smile  I'll get some miles in later today.

               

              Hope everyone is having a great day!

                Hi, guys. Done with court.

                 

                Jen, thanks!

                 

                The vet visit is just for a follow up on Sammy's eye.  She is also sneezing so I'll ask them to check her out for that too.

                Will run for beer.

                  YO!  Quick fly-by posting while on lunch break.  All is well here.  I'm hoping to grab a couple of dreadmill miles tonight at home.  Our washer went out yesterday afternoon so right after work I'll be shopping for a replacement.  That will cut into running time.  LOL

                   

                  Back to work... everyone have a great afternoon.

                    Lunch?  I had two slices of Wal-Mart pizza.  It didn't exactly thrill my soul, but we've been gone for a week and DH has a cold, so he didn't feel like cooking much yesterday.  My only real problem is that I won't get home until about 8:30 tonight, I will be STARVING!!

                        I race in SparkleSkirts

                          Tori- I have the FR10, love it!

                           

                          Scotty- cute kitty. Yeah the hour and a half train ride was a bit much. Especially since I had to pee 45 minutes in from my pre-race hydrating! At least I had a friend to ride with. I should have looked up how far Washington Heights was exactly before registering, I knew it would be far, but wasn't quite expecting THAT far!

                           

                          Jen- Good luck at your race and enjoy FL!

                           

                          Damaris- Hope Sammy is ok!

                           

                          Great running and happy resting everyone else Smile

                            Hope - I love me some putt putt. Only time we get to play is when we go down o the beach though. We have 2 courses near us but they are kinda ghetto.

                             

                            Tori - great job on the 2. I'm suwe its nice finally having the time to get back to running again.

                             

                            Mitch - yes I saw. Sorry I forgot to reply back to you. We are going to register Friday when we get paid.

                             

                            AFM - was going to get out and run today but woke up to my legs and abs hurting like you would not beleive. Going to give them a rest today and get back out there tomorrow.

                            My parents said I could be anything when I grew up, so I decided to be Awesome!

                                I swam, and it was nice.  Love spring break when the students are gone!!  There were more people than I expected, though, not sure why.

                                When it's all said and done, no one remembers how far we have run.  The only thing that matters is how we have loved.
