      When I arrived at the track and started my run, I noticed that the gym had lowered all of its flags to half staff. Several friends joined me as I ran. We were all feeling the need for solidarity, I think.  I ran hard for a half hour in memory of those attacked in Boston. As one of my police running friends started his run, I yelled, “Run one for Boston!” and he answered “YES!”.

      Yesterday was a 30 minute run and 50 minute cardio dvd.

      Today will be a track run, then cardio DVD.

      Happy runs, All!  :::HUGS:::

        Rest day. Didn't plan it but my legs need it after 16 days straight and a lot of miles.

         

        Lisa wow on the diverted landing. Hope they were ok. Glad the leg is better.

         

        That was a nice run Judy

          Morning!  SRD for me as well.

           

          judyruns, we also did a group run with our Boston bibs last night.  Enjoy the cardio DVD.

           

          Marjorie, enjoy the rest.

           

          For those that asked, my race this Saturday is a 50K.  First one and is on a tough trail and I have an 8 hour time limit, so I'm pretty freaked out now.

            Good morning all,

             

            i haven't said much in the last two days.  It's been kind of hard to put words together.

             

            There is a virtual run (not a fund raiser to insure that it's not a scam) being pulled together on Facebook.  Our little running group, now nine strong, are going to print our bibs and run on Monday.  Here's the link, if you're interested: Facebook Virtual Run and Bib

             

            Judy - awesome run!  love it.

            Marjorie - Sixteen straight days... I'd be a lump on the floor after that!  Smile

             

            Hoping to get 4 or so miles in this afternoon.   The foot stopped hurting the instant I extracted the large pebble from my tread.  Go figure.  I DO have princess-and-the-pea feet.  Must be my diva side.

             

            Be well all

            blessings,

            Julie

              Julie, I  printed out that bib to use in my race on Saturday. I will probably pin it to my back.

                Julie, I'm with you. It's hard to put words together and to have the normal enthusiasm to respond to others.

                 

                I'll wear one of the bibs this weekend, too. I've been asked if I'll do races in the future. Yes. No doubt.

                  I share the same thoughts as all of you have expressed.

                   

                  6 really good miles for me this morning, very encouraging.

                   

                  Marjorie...you certainly deserve a rest day, enjoy.

                   

                  Damaris...you will do well this weekend.

                   

                  Julie...I will wear the bib for my  long run this weekend

                   

                  Lisa...glad you are feeling somewhat better.

                   

                  Took a day off today, I have another marathon with the dentist this morning, and I don't mean running, wish I did.

                    Ran 5 last night after work.  Will run this evening, as well.  I did not sleep much at all last night, brain wouldn't shut off between thinking about work stress and Boston.  Ugh

                     

                    Hi Judy, Lisa, Julie, Amy, Ginny, Camille, Damaris, Marjorie and all to follow, I appreciate you all <3

                        I've been reading accounts from friends who were there and crying, statements from running friends and crying, acts of courage and kindness and crying, and then I read this from a Marathon Maniac. Some NSFW language, but it made me smile.

                        https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xay1mBAGPpAptmjLn-iNS7-YjnGrUPWML5dSGw_Fe7M/pub

                         

                        Last night I ran 11 with 4 x 1.5 miles with 800 recoveries in the middle. It was 75 degrees so got a little warm. Was so happy they had turned the water fountains on for the summer on my little rail trail. About a 1/4 mile of the trail runs along the road, and it's not the nicest part of town. I was wearing my Army 10-miler shirt that said "I will never quit" on the back, and a car came by, honked and yelled "good for you. keep running". Lots of runners out on the trail yesterday.

                         

                        SRD for me today. I've run nearly 75 miles in the last 7 days and need a break. That's a lot for me.

                         

                        Damaris, good luck this weekend. I'm sure you've gotten a ton of advice, but I'm going to add to it. You have 8 hours, you can do it. Hike the uphills. Watch your feet if it's a technical trail. Your mind will wander before your body gets tired and that's when you're mostly likely to trip. If you do fall, it's not the end of the world. Everybody does. Just get back up, walk a little, then run if it doesn't hurt. Don't spend too much time at the aid stations - it's tempting, but an extra 5-10 minutes at each one really adds up.

                         

                        I will print out the bib and wear it at my 10K on Sunday. I saw that at the London Marathon this Sunday, runners will cross the finish with their hands over the hearts as a mark of respect and compassion. I plan to do the same Sunday and also at the NJ Marathon in 2.5 weeks.

                         

                        Hey, do you guys remember Lisa Ann that used to post? She is in the DC area now and I saw she is signed up for the 10K I'm running - hoping to meet up with her.

                         

                        Hi to all,

                        karen

                        Since everyone else is blogging: http://karenrunsfar.blogspot.com/
                        Upcoming Races: 11/22 Annapolis Half Marathon, 12/6 Rehoboth Beach Marathon, 1/17 Charleston Marathon

                          Ginny-you're running a marathon with your dentist? when did this occur? LOL

                           

                          Damaris-woohoo on the trail 50k!! welcome to the darkside.. as in you see the darkside of the inside of mouths when you tell people that you've done that.  Actually it's the kinder and gentler side with snacks along the way.  What race is it? Where?

                           

                          Tessa-too funny!  I heard about 2 buck chuck last night although I think it was 3 buck .. maybe they were just trying to sound better.  They said it was good. I'm not picky but you certainly do taste a difference. it's like having fine chocolate.

                           

                          All of you posting the runs you've done already...

                           

                          I'm laying in bed.

                            Good Morning!  Better day for the back.  Ran 6 miles this morning.  Last night the LRS had a prayer run for Boston.  About 400 folks came, ran 3 miles.  Nice ceremony.  I rescued the Boston Freedom Trail Run t-shirt from the recycle pile and wore it.  Randy and I ran it together.  Julie and Tessa--you have met Randy.

                              Karen, that letter was awesome. I am reposting. Many places. And how fun to see Lisa Ann! I am sure she likes DC better than Kansas. I also hope I remember to put my hand over my heart when I finish the 10-miler Saturday. Sometimes I get a little self-absorbed at the finish line, so I might forget. But I will wear the memorial bib.

                               

                              Lisa, it rains in SD like once a year. I guess it waited for you. Please be careful on your leg!!

                               

                              Sue -- we had a memorial run here in town last night, too, but I didn't see the email till this morning. Thank you to all who have run memorial runs this week.

                                judyruns - good workouts.  Nice for others to "Run for Boston."

                                 

                                MarjorieAnn - Oh I enjoy my restdays.  Wise to rest when you need it.

                                 

                                Damaris - Good luck on your upcoming 50.

                                Camille - that's nice of you to wear a bib. Are you racing this weekend?

                                 

                                Ginny - glad you had a good 6. I hope the dentist went well for you

                                 

                                LCRuns - have a good 5 tonight. Hope you sleep well

                                 

                                Karen - impressive mileage. Good luck this weekend

                                 

                                Lisa - glad you are resting:-)
