Marathon Maniac #957

    For those of you who are new, this is the 40/40 thread, for people who are over 40 years old who run 40 miles/week or more. We give Free Passes to those who come really close or try really hard...

     

    Here’s a placeholder until I get last week’s tally up.

    Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

      I need a pass this week. Smile

        You deserve a pass this week.  I can't wait to see how you do at Boston!

          Thanks Holly!

           

          Tramps gets a pass? What is there some sort of special race soon? Wink

            I need a pass too. I'm coming up to Boston to see Tramps run!

             

            Actually, I'm still sick. Thought I'd be better by now, but nope, still coughing and have no energy. Oh and I *am* going up to Boston too, but that has nothing to do with anything. Wink

             

            Blah... no running of any value this week, and no Boston road trip either. Planning on a clean slate for next week.

              Go Tramps!

               

              Another tough training week planned, for my upcoming 5k, not the marathon since I'm a 4:45 pacer.  Been there, Surf City, got the shirt.

                 Did the speed work, yesterday, so I slacked off, today.  Just did my 20 back extension...thanks to the reminder from Holly.

                  Good luck, Tramps.  You could be back with us next week, right? The weather looks great for a good day.
