>Look What I Can Do!>10,000 miles Warning!! Bragging!!!
Old, Slow, Happy
Tonight I ran exactly 6.1 miles so that my log would show 10,000 miles!!!!!!
My first log entry is from 11/28/2004. I actually started earlier in the year, but did not log until then. On Jan. 1st, 2004 I started "getting into shape". I weighed 295 and was 50 years old. Now I weigh about 205 and I turned 56 on last Sunday. I run slowly, but a long way. My best race is a 10 miler in 81:00. I am an ex-coolrunning guy. I changed to RA when active.com messed things up. Best move I ever made.
One day at a time

nice, that is a hell of a long way.
"As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin' man I have chalked up many a mile. Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks, And I've learned much from both of their styles." ~ Jimmy Buffett
"I don't see much sense in that," said Rabbit. "No," said Pooh humbly, "there isn't. But there was going to be when I began it. It's just that something happened to it along the way."”
It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

Prince of Fatness
an amazing likeness
I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day. (for now)
Way to go man.
But let me tell you a 1:21:00 10 miler in mid 50's is not slow nor is this training run last week:
12 Mile Pinwheel
Keep up the good work
"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it Great!
Needs more cowbell!
• Keep doing stuff.
I think you might need some help learning the definition of "slowly."
And the speed of your bike rides is astounding (you being 56 and all). Wow!
MTA: Wow. to Wow!
Thanks everyone for letting me brag to you. The picture is me at the finish of my last HM. I had runners knee for about the last year and it has slowed me down a little. I've run some 5ks this summer and I'm aiming for a 10 miler in Jan. Then a HM in March. I hope to run a marathon next fall after the high-school soccer season is over. I am very glad that I found RA when I moved from coolrunning. You guys are GREAT!!!
