Just crossed the 600th mile (Read 815 times)


On the road again...

    After a couple of weeks off with shin splints, I was starting to wonder if I'd get this done, but I just finished up the run that put me over 600 miles for the year. I am amazed at what I got done in 2008: 1. I started running in April 2. Completed Couch to 5k and One Hour Runner programs 3. I ran 3 5ks, 2 10ks, 1 Half Marathon (plus a Turkey Trot with my son) 4. PRs were: 5k - 25:29 | 10k - 54:22 | HM - 2:03:28 5. Cholesterol dropped from dangerously high levels to normal 6. I lost 28 pounds (210 to 182) There are so many of you here that will never know how much your posts encourage me. Thanks for that. Hope we all have even better years in 09!

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

      Good Job Yapper.......thats a pretty impressive first year and a great start. I think there are some good things in store for you in 2009.....Big grinBig grinWinkBig grinBig grin

        Thanks, John. Biggest lesson I learned in 08? Run lots, mostly easy. Can't wait to use that during 09.

              And sometimes hard. Congrats on a great year, Yapper. See you in 09.

              I ran a mile and I liked it, liked it, liked it.

                  Funny you said that, because I've noticed your profile many times and thought the same thing. Our years mirror each other in a very odd way, don't they? We're also the same age. I also have a racing pic that looks like your avatar. Maybe I should make it my av to complete the eeriness!

                    congratulations to you both gentlemen, and may many uninjured easy miles roll up before you Smile

                    It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                      Hey gumhead, I switched out my av. Is that weird or what? Notice the arm position, the facial expression. Too similar, huh?

                          My GF said it was freaky. We pretty much have the same goals for 2009 too.

                            Wanna run Richmond together? We could wear matching bibs (well, except for the numbers).
