>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.

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.

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:

Keep up the good work

She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.
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!!!
