The Last MONDAILIES of 2012 (Read 191 times)

    Happy New Year's Eve, runners! You have all posted some incredible years.

     

    Beth - That is an insane amount of snow from 24 hours!

     

    3 miles for me, just to say I finished the year running. Very tough. Lungs didn't like the cold wind, and right ankle was sore. No 3-mile run should be this miserable. (I knew that, though, going in, because I've had a cough and been running a fever.)

      Wow, Beth - memories of my years in Cleveland, Ohio! Though most snows were not that deep!

        David, is it me or are the forums in RWOL down?  I was unable to even open the forums page today.

         

        How in the world are we posting our miles today?

         

         

        I think you may be right. I can get them to come up either.  I'm sending my miles to Doug and Angela.

        I AM WEEZER.

          David, I think it's up already.  Doug posted the link to the 2013 FB group.  Check if you can go in through there.

           

          I am still at the office until 3:30pm.  I do need to do grocery shopping.  I assume it will be a zoo like April's one.

            Great job in 2012. And good hard running music you are listening too. have a great 2013!

             

            I am taking the day off from the gym and running. We are expecting 2-3 inchces of snow here in central illinois tonight so i think we will stay close to home and maybe a run tomorrow.

             

            Have a great day everyone!

             

            A great, short run to end the year. Finished with 67.5 miles for December (a PR)
            and 604 miles total for 2012. Looking forward to 2013!

                Beth: Holy freaking snow!!!  I'm in Wisconsin, but we don't have anywhere near that much.  Crazy town!

                 

                I bailed on my run.  1.5 painful miles.  Resuming rolling/icing, blah,blah, blah, blah.

                  I was a bad girl. I ran 19.0 miles on the TM in 3:25:50. 10:50 pace. After the run, I stretched, rolled, and stretched some more. I feel wonderfulSmile

                                Didn't get the run done. 3.5 hours of shoveling and then walking the dog 2 miles will have to do for

                                today. Plus the temps maxed out at 2F (with chill) with 25mp/hr gusts so it was pretty darn cold anyway.

                                 

                                Hubby and I are running 13.1 tomorrow to kick off marathon training and  celebrate the New Year.

                                 

                                I've been telling hubby for years to buy a snowblower, especially since it's been 3 years since any teenagers

                                lived here to help out. Lots of our neighbours with long driveways like ours hire people to plow their yard.

                                We will be here 20 years in Dec and he says he will get one next winter. Only time will tell!LOL As long as I

                                can quit shoveling and come inside when I feel like it he can shovel until he is 90!LOL

                                 

                                Dtothe2nd, enjoy your race!

                                Kristin, hope your ITB is feeling better.

                                Kay, hope the foot isn't anything that will need time off.

                                Tom, enjoy your run as well.

                                AmiK, that sounds like fun!LOL

                                Hi Lilyheureuse nouvelle année mon ami!!

                                Cris, hope you enjoyed the skiing.

                                Mitch, don't worry about never running in snow, you're not missing anything

                                Steph, sorry that cold is hanging on. Our son had it over Christmas and is still not 100%.

                                Luke, hope you feel better soon, internet son. Yes, you might be right about that, I think I have hubby convinced to

                                get a condo somewhere warm for the winter months when we retire. I don't want to be dealing with this

                                crap when I'm in my 60's.Roll eyes Our boys all 100% for that idea too, it will give them somewhere warm to visit!

                                Heidi, so sorry about the leg.
