              Congratulations! I just started running, and reading things like this are really inspiring!
              ~*~*~*~* Goals: 1. Complete 5k race on September 20th (Big House Big Heart) 2. Complete half-marathon on October 19th (Detroit) 3. Complete full-marathon in May 2009 (Lincoln) "defy gravity"


              On the road again...

                Just ran across the thread and wanted to say great job on your first 5K. I ran (and walked some with my sister) my first 5K over the July 4 holiday, too, and can't wait to read more about what's next for you.

                I have a love/hate relationship with running. I do it, but sometimes I love to hate it.

                  What a great race report. Had me smiling while reading. Great job!!

                  Slow and steady wins the race means a lot of fast people pass you.

                    Congrats on your first race. Distances will get larger and pace times smaller. Enjoy! Your future trail sounds great. OK, I can not actually hear her. Smile
                    just because somebody runs long races doesn't mean they are more advanced than runners who run shorter races. i just hate it when people run a marathon in 5 hours and act like they've accomplished all there is to accomplish in the sport of running. the next logical step after a 5k race is, in my opinion, a faster 5k, not a 10k.

                        Um... Hi, Tony, nice to meet you today! Sorry if I was a little flabbergasted, it's just not every day someone you've never met knows who you are! Blush It was a beautiful day, though, hope you enjoyed it as much as I did... Nice shirt btw...
