day after day sameness

    I have a correction to make on one of my Park & Rec10K's. One isn't there, because I probably forgot to include it; but the one that is there has the finish time of the other...I think.

     

    The missing one was the St' Paddy's Day 10K 3/17/12 and I ran 57:23

     

    I ran the Memorial Day 10K 5/28/12 in 55:37

     

    Thanks for catching those! Fixed 'em. Those were back under Matt's maintaining the calendar...(they weren't, but that's the story I'm going with). 

    Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless

      SmileThank you and thanks for maintaining the chart. It's impressive and motivating to see what we are all up to over the year.

      Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

        I know I have been absent for quite some time. Have been wrestling with side effects of Agent Orange exposure impact on my health and PTSD. But am coming out of it and have committed to a Dec HM and paid coach to keep me training and ready for it.

              Hi all,

               

              Well, due to work conflicts, I have had to move my original HM from Run for the Redfish on 1 Dec to the Blue Mountain HM that is Oct 14.  My training has gone well, so rather than run one later, I have moved up my schedule.  Ran a 12 mi long run Saturday, so I believe that I shouldn't have a problem in completing my first HM.  I have enjoyed the training so much, I may continue to build for an eventual marathon in Feb 2013.  I know that my goal is to finish, and not worry about the time.

               

              Here are the details of my new HM (which I registered for on Sunday)

                  Hi all, first post since joining RA a few days ago (switched from MapMyRun).  Decided to sign up for the HM here in Pensacola:

                  Race: Pensacola Half

                  Haven't done much long-distance running...have done 5k's around 24 min in the past.  Since this will be my first HM, I am not setting a goal time.  Looking forward to the race, and to getting lots of great info from the forums here!

                    Welcome to the Half Marathon Trainers forum, and to RunningAhead, CF16.  I'll get your race on the calendar later today when I update it.  Don't be a stranger, join the discussions...we usually have a monthly topic going, some weekly upcoming race and results topics, and who knows what else.

                      OK let's make the foolishness official Wink

                            Come all you no-hopers, you jokers and rogues
                            We're on the road to nowhere, let's find out where it goes

                              I'm on the mend from a hip injury and though not 100% yet, I am finally able to get on the road again.  While I had committed to the San Antonio Rock n Roll on Nov 11, I wasn't able to race it.  Me and my DW did go ahead and participate, but just enjoyed 13 mile walk instead.  I'll see how this goes, but would love to work back up to racing again by the early Spring.  [fingers crossed]

                              2014 goals:   •  1st Marathon  •  3,000 miles

                                Hi everyone, I completed my first 2 HM's this year, Long Branch HM and Atlantic City HM, hope to do 4-5 in 2013, depending on how many I have access to in the area.
