Off-topic forum? (Read 1014 times)

    Eric, any way we could have a board for off-topic discussions? Every once in a while I think to post something that isn't really related to running, but I don't want to clog-up a topic-specific board. k

    remind your lungs how much they like the taste of air.

      We wouldn't get off topic, now, would we? ::blink:: ::blink::

          Trent, that's a very neat looking marathon! That looks like a lot of fun. If I ever decided to try a race of that caliber, that would be a fun one to do, for certain! Smile k

            Thanks. It should be fun. Alright, maybe not, but it should be a brutal mess. And the park is pretty. The good news is that you don't have to run the marathon to post off-topic or off-color on that message board.

              Smile So is that marathon all on paved surfaces, or some trails? We have a 10k trail run coming up this Nov. that I am thinking about doing...but I do all my running on pavement, so I wonder if that would be a big shock. Most trails around here are pretty sandy. k

                You'll probably want to practice running on the trails well before the race. Around here trails are dirt and rocks and tree roots and hills and sometimes steps. Times are worse, but it's usually shady. It's easier on the joints, but you've got a bigger chance of spraining an ankle if you're not careful when you're tired. I'd pick trails over pavement any day. Smile

                  Now, why would we go somewhere designed for off-topic postings when we could clutter up Eric's Sugggestions and Feature Requests forum??? Wink

                    Why run a 10k when you can run a 42 k? The Monkey'thon includes about a half mile on grass, and the rest is paved. The bit on grass is right at the start and again at the finish, about a quarter mile each. The message board? Well, its all monkey business.

                        LOL! Are you saying that where there's a will there's a way? Sorry. Just couldn't resist.
