      Wow! I managed to start the thread using my BlackBerry!


      Good morning from the Delaware beaches! I ran 6 this morning and am killing time until my friend wakes up. I was supposed to go longer but I packed warm weather clothes and it was 42 and windy. I can't believe I ran in a tank and no gloves.


      So far the trip is going well. My friend and I haven't fought yet. I had lobster cheese fries for lunch yesterday, oysters for dinner, and just polished off some cookies and milk while I wait for breakfast. Smile We also had massages yesterday. My lady said I was right "Everywhere". More evidence that I need to do more stretching. Sad


      Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I'll try to catch up with personals when I have a laptop.


      Let's see if I can add a picture using this thing:

      Bad Ass

        Morning!  2-5 miles tonight.


        Can somebody substitute the 4/27 HM with the Doral 5K?  That race was yesterday so I wasn't able to run the HM.

          Hey All,


          I have 8 miles today of which 6 are repeat miles with the last 2 being 15sec faster than the last 4, with w/u and c/d. anyways, don't know if I'll be gettin to it though. I've got so much to do today, mow, shop, house needs cleaning (all of this has been neglected the last couple of weeks) and dd is comin to pick up the last of her stuff.


          I hadn't been sleeping well at all the last couple of days and last night was no exception. I was in bed by 6:55 and didn't get to sleep till 7:30 (cause dh wanted to talk) but then I was up every couple of hours. I may try some sleeping stuff tonight to help me sleep.


          julia - beautiful picture. where is that? Dh and myself are tryin to figure out where to go for vacay this yr. I'd like to go someplace where we can just chill and not feel like we have to do anything. he wants to go to Vegas. I don't want to go there. I've been there 2x and used to live there with my grandma. I don't like vegas and finally had to tell him.


          docket - how are the muscles today? feelin good? any soreness?

          Jan 13 - Houston Chevron Marathon

          Feb 17 - Austin Half Marathon

          March 2 - Woodlands Marathon


          Go figure

            Just got in from volunteering at our inaugural duathlon...boy was it cold! There were about 90 runners/bikers and they all seemed to enjoy it. I did some registration stuff and then directed runners on the second run course. I'm planning on running a few miles later, after I warm up.


            Julia...awesome pic, and the food sounds so good. Tight everywhere could be trouble! Good job with the 6.


            Docket...great job with the ultra. I'll get to your RR this evening hopefully. Have a good shakeout run.


            Cc..good luck with the tough workout. Sorry about the sleep loss - I know that's frustrating. Vacation has to work for both of you for sure. I love Corolla in the Outer Banks, personally.

              D_R, I'll make the change for you...  How are you feeling today?  I guess okay if you're feeling up for a recovery run.


              CC, I'm in Bethany Beach which is on the Delaware shore.  The beaches are nice but I would think it would be hard for people to come here on vacation.  I'm thinking the nearest big airport is Baltimore, which would still be a 2 hour drive away, I think.


              SIAR, It was good of you to volunteer.  I keep telling myself I need to do that someday but never get around to

                Afternoon everyone.  I'm not going to do personals.  This week is the last week my husband will be home, so I'm not going to be online much.  Anyway:


                Today: 5 miles

                Tomorrow: Cross Fit plus 4-5 miles

                Tuesday: 8 miles

                Wednesday: Cross Fit

                Thursday: Last day of work WOOHOO! and cross fit + 3-4 miles

                Friday: 6-8 miles

                Saturday: Rest

                Sunday: 6-8 miles

                Monday:  I will either be running or drowning my sorrows in wine...




                Half: 1:48 (March 3rd, 2013)

                Full: 4:05:40 (March 17th, 2013)


                2013/2014 Goals:

                Sub-4:00 hour Marathon

                Sub- 125 pounds
                Sub- 1:45 hour half.


                Go figure

                  Quick evening check in - ran 9 miles, with 3 at MP today.  It finally warmed up a little from this morning so the run was pretty pleasant and the MP miles felt good.  Next week will just be some shorter runs with a couple quick segments, and then it's time to race!


                  Julia...It was really fun volunteering.  I actually wanted to pass out water at an aid station, but I guess I'll have to do that another time.  That'd probably be more fun at a big race anyway.  I hope the rest of your day has been nice.


                  Jodi...Have a great week with your husband and enjoy the time together.  Congrats on that last day of work too.

                  Trying to find some more hay to restock the barn

                    Quick check in for me.  Six days in a row immediately following a marathon.  I have never done that before even though today's run was just slightly more than 5.  Already reserved hotel room for Boston 2014.  Instead of paying $360 a night in Boston we are going to stay near the start for $75 a night.  We won't be around Boston as much but plan on checking out Salem and Plymouth.  I just don't want to spend as much money as we did this year.


                    Also, DW purchased a jacket on ebay.  They're almost impossible to come by and I passed it up at the expo thinking I would get one later.  Yes, she did pay more than what they were selling for race day, but we really wanted one.


                    Also, made hotel reservations for the next one which is in three weeks. The shortest time between previous marathons was about 8 months, so we'll see how this one goes.  If there was a ever a chance for a PR for me it would be this one.


                    Jodi--enjoy the time with DH

                    Damaris--skimmed your RR and will go back and re-read.  The heat and the course sounded brutal.  I was hoping for an ultra this year, but it looks doubtful.  Congratulations!

                    Julia--Hope you are having a great time at the beach and with your friend.

                    SIAR--Glad you had fun at the duathlon

                    cc--planning vacations are always fun, to me anyways.  We are done with ours for the year.  Hope things start looking up for you.

                    Finally PRed!!!

                      Hi everyone!


                      Julia: Awesome beach pic! Glad you're having fun.


                      Docket: Hope your miles went well tonight. Hope the recovery from the ultra goes smoothly


                      CC: Sounds like a busy day, hope you were able to get the mile repeats in.


                      SIAR: Great job volunteering! And nice 9 too!


                      jojo: Enjoy the last week with your husband and your last day of work.


                      marco: wow, 6 days in a row right after a marathon! Sounds like a smart idea to stay near the start to save money. I bet you'll have a great race in 3 weeks.


                      We've had some cooler (but sunny and beautiful) weather all weekend, which has been really nice for running. My paces have been much better. Yesterday I got in 5 with the last 2 @ MP, then went to a party with a bunch of people from some of my running groups. I ate a lot, and drank some too (wine this time for a change). Then this morning I ran 3 on the way to meet the running group, then 8 with the group. Then went to the Dogwood Festival and looked at some art and watched part of the Disc Dogs competition. Drank some beer too. My weight has been down close to 8 lbs since the marathon, hope I didn't do too much damage this weekend. Finally got my miles back up over 40, so that should help. I have a 10-day streak going myself now, but mostly really low miles/day.

                      PRs: 5K: 22:09, 10K:44:55, 15K: 1:10:35, HM: 1:42:49, M: 3:32:09


                        Hey guys, got most of what was on my list done. I did get my run but didnt' get my shoppin done.



                        dd came by to get the rest of her things. it was light hearted. dh and myself agreed not to try and convince her to stay. that was more for his benefit b/c he's been tryin all week to give her a way back. but I told him that we really need to let her do this and see what happens, no matter how much it hurts us. he agreed.


                        my run was pretty nice. I ran a mile w/u and another c/d. 6 miles at 9min pace with the last 2 miles 15sec faster than the last.
