      Running for TJ

        20 push-ups and 30 crunches done.

        You have to run through the valley if you want to get to the mountain top!


        Next goal:  Mad Marsh 50K (November 2014)


        Run to live; live to run


          Please go to my aunt's restaurant Hurricane Mo's and tell her that her niece Jessica sent you. Also, if you haven't yet you must pretend you are three and roll down the sand dunes.


          Ok Will do.  I've been there a lot so won't be rolling down any dunes.


            8 miles @ 7:45 (middle 4 @ 6:38, 6:35, 6:33, 6:28). I probably should have taken easy after 3 days off, but I wanted to run fast.

              Great run. That push is consistent!

              Mountains to Beach Marathon - 25 May


                Great run. That push is consistent!


                Thanks, it felt great to get that out of my system. Btw, I'm slowly making my way towards your RR. There were so many this weekend!


                  Hey everyone!


                  12.4 miles @ 7:55/mile done in a light misting rain, felt great. Smile


                  Bruce, that was hilarious!

                  Fun Size

                    2.25 easy miles with DH this evening.


                    April/Bruce - your RR made my evening!


                      Oh April ...


                      Tick ... tock ... tick ... tock ... tick .... tock


                      I'm hoping that your silence is the sound of you writing up your race report, because I'd hate to have to make that new thread ... or worse, let folks embellish my version with their ideas too. I'm guessing that'd mean we'd have to add in side stories about pole dancing, furry critters, tequila, and a South American soccer team.

                      Train smart ... race smarter.

                        Hi dailies:


                        HobbitLegs - belated welcome.  Fact:  one of the roads I occasionally run on is named Underhill Smile


                        Sparker - glad it went well


                        DaveP - special rain just for you, blarg.


                        D - is the weather down in PR typically just as bad as Miami?


                        AmiK - ugh, hope that cortisone helps your road to recovery


                        Sarah - hope the results are good


                        Baboon - have a nice vacay


                        Rick - oh, you programmed a run?  "Not a robot" cover = blown.


                        Robert - on the slippery slope to ultras, maybe?


                        Bruce - so there are lots of knit doilies and anise candies at Grandma's marathon?  Can't wait to read the report from that one.


                        Basya - maybe just do a shorter LR the week before, cut volume a little, and throw in a fartlek 4-5 days before?  That's what I'd do, anyway, YMMV.


                        D - haha, great pic.


                        Kristin - feel better


                        April - hope the stick helped your recovery


                        SIAR - enjoy that well-earned rest


                        FLA - be safe in those storms


                        Brr - wishing you warmer weather
