"People ask why I run. I say, 'If you have to ask, you will never understand'. It is something only those select few know. Those who put themselves through pain, but know, deep down, how good it really feels." - Erin Leonard

seattle marathon - circa 2006 (see also 1990) girls/girls.)>>>, i mean <<<(hills/hills)>>> <<<()>>> 皇居 in wooden geta 下駄 sandals, straw 草鞋 waraji sandals and several kinds of cloth tabis 足袋 including a regular jika-tabis 地下足袋 I also ran sections of the Tokyo Marathon course (3/22 this year; 2/;28 next year) adding up to 18 miles as I took the rosie ruiz trains back from the two out-and-backs. January total - 70 miles (January PR), . . . or was that 70K? either way, still a PR month. In fact, after three laps already this month, I`m ahead of last year`s February too. February miles - tetsujin - 10.2 miles YTD - 80.2 miles arigatou royal wildness goddess 1. February runs . . a. 2/7 - (3.1)(2) miles (barefoot) . . b. 2/14 - 4 miles (barefoot0 2. PR - running 10K from 9:30am - 10:00am on 2/7 (unfortunately, it took an hour to do it as 30 minutes was in Tokyo and 30 minutes in Seattle exactly 19 hours later) 3. boomer reunions - francesca/divechief/enka (2/19) 4. gratuitous comment - a bare foot is a terrible thing to waste in shoes hey, what a coincidence. I did two events too. 29.95 miles - St. Pat's Dash (3.75 miles) and Dizzy Daze Marathon YTD - 80.2 + 29.95 = 110.15 miles April miles - 0 YTD = 110.15 ps - my favorite running photos of all time are the little flyers' ones too. me too http://www.brightroom.com/view_user_event.asp?
