    Sorry about Hobbes...he is a youngster for such surgery so on that hand he will do well and recover well if you decide to do that.  Rusty is still up for 2-3 miles so I let his mood guide my runs with him.

     

    I haven't been all that motivated lately with Xmas and meetings and finals and students who feel they did better than their grade reflects and on and on.  But today I am going to take in a quiet slow run on a cold and rainy day.

    Run like you are on fire! 5K goal 24:00 or less (PR 24:34) 10K goal 50:00 or less (PR 52:45) HM goal 1:55:00 or less (PR 2:03:02) Marathon Goal...Less than my PR (PR 4:33:23)


    Imminent Catastrophe

      6.8 today in cold, windy, rainy NYC. It was kind of fun, though. That puts me at 1506 miles, a PR.

      Now it's time to take some rest and let things heal up. See y'all next year, stay in touch!

        Happy Feat: that looks like such a scenic place to be. Is it close to home?

         

         Yes, it's barely a 45 minute drive from my house into Olympic National Park. Here are some photos from today. Went out for about a 3-hour hike.  There is not as much snow as the year I took the avatar photo. No snow on the trees today in fact. Temps about 40! I was sweating in my snow pants and shedding all the top layers that I could.

        Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

          Congratulations on over-achieving your goal and reaching a new PR. That's fantastic. Very well done!  Will you continue with this pace group since you're so far ahead?

            Finishing this week on treadmills because the weather is crummy and my running buddy is out of town.  Am trying to make 1000 but I may be a bit shy

            Run like you are on fire! 5K goal 24:00 or less (PR 24:34) 10K goal 50:00 or less (PR 52:45) HM goal 1:55:00 or less (PR 2:03:02) Marathon Goal...Less than my PR (PR 4:33:23)

              Perfesser: congrats on your PR! I'm just too inconsistent a runner to run that many miles I was hoping to make it to 1600 kilometers this year, but this week has not been good for running. In fact, despite my good intentions I haven't been out or on the treadmill at all this week. Too busy, too much sugary and fatty foods and so not in the mood for any high impact. I will hop on the TM today though. Get as close to that 1600 as I can

              Happy Feat: wow! That looks beautiful! It's as flat as a pancake where I live

              Crabby: you go girl!. 

              Trey: is it HD what Hobbes has? Or is this different?

              I go running in the early morning, before my brain figures out what I'm up to.

              Run the day, or the day runs you.

                 Thanks everyone!

                HappyFeat, I'll stick around, good peeps here. I miss Washington (lived in Everett for 3 yrs).

                  Happy - stunning scenery. I mean, like, WOW.


                  Duchie - yes, I guess so. Hobbes has hardly any cartilage in either hip joint.  


                  did a 20K trail run in Charlotte with a 4 other guys on Sunday. The weather was perfect. A little muddy. I started intentionally running directly in the middle of the puddles half way through. Then jumping, with both feet, into the puddles. It was awesome.
