        Are those medals/bottle openers?  Yuengling you shouldn't have!


        Congrats, just think if you can knock another 22 minutes off for next year Joking.

          Thanks coastal!  I'm really looking forward to seeing what I can do at my 5k next month, and my first mile race in August, it'll be hot, but I think it'll be fun to see what I can do in a mile.


          Jameszilla, yup, the 8k/half/full medals are all bottle openers, guess they figured it wouldn't be appropriate to have the kid's medals double as openers. LOL  I have a feeling that whole diminishing returns thing is gonna start kicking in, but I think there are still some very solid improvements to be had. Smile

            Congrats!  What a huge improvement.  I can't wait to see where you're at after running 2 years.

            Life is good.


              WTG Dave!   You sure blew that PR away!   I'm so often astounded by the progress that many of you make in such a short period of time.  You're fast and you're lean and mean ---look awesome in your pics.  The fact that your whole family is now involved makes it even cooler.    (Also, what a cool sand sculpture that was.  Glad you got a pic of it.)

                Thanks outoftheblue!  Can't wait to see what the next year brings.  I'm going to run the full at the Shamrock next year for my first official full, should be interesting to see what kind of damage I can do with another year of training. Smile


                Thanks so much Cherie!  Sometimes it's hard for me to believe how far I've come, never thought I'd even like running, much less be any good at it. lol
