      Good to see goals were met with the racers. Congrats! I hate that I missed out on the great weather this past weekend. I spent time in PA with my boyfriend and it rained the entire time.

      Run Long, and Prosper!

        Nice job racers/pacer! TWHgal - sorry the weather didn't work out for you. Clive - trying to place the quote in your sig-line. Thinking I remember hearing something similar in Silence of the Lambs. Went to my Dr. yesterday and he sent me home with some steroids hoping it will knock down the inflamation of the patella tendon allowing it to heal quicker. If that doesn't do it, next stop is my orthopedist.

        never runs the tangents

          I moved my training log over here. It has been living on Garmin Connect. I'm really not sure what I'm doing with it yet so instead of trying to figure out how to transfer it over I just uploaded whatever happened to still be on my watch.

           

          Yes I work with computers all day

          and yet they vex me

          when in doubt, run

            It's a take-off of the Silence of The Lambs line, applied to a healthy-food conversation between a RWOL convert and an RA long-timer.

             

            I hope the steroids help the knee and don't give you any weird side effects!

              I think the only side effect of this type of steroid is it lowers my immune system a bit. Don't have to worry about raging, head swelling, or shrinkage down south ;-)

                Good luck getting your knee well Joe.

                 

                Not sure if CliveF will give me race credit since I didn't officially declare this. And it wasn't a race timed event. I just finished running the 12 12 12 Trail Traverse starting at Crowders Mtn. It was a 12.12 mile trail run held on 12/12/12. I think I finished around 2:11 or 2:12. It was a nice and laid back event and we got shirts and a medal. Great use of extra vacation days I have to use before the end of the year.

                  I'll allow it.

                    Joe, assume your on prednisone (or a similar type of corticosteroid)? How long are you going to be on it (did your get a 5/4/3/2/1 prescription or something where your on it for a longer period of time and then taper off?

                     

                    Lynwood, how was running those trails in the rain (slippery? puddles? did you run thru creeks?)?

                      Rob, It was perfect conditions on Crowder's Mtn. Lots of leaves to disguise rocks but otherwise excellent.  Only a few of the last runners got some light rain near the end of their runs.  No stream crossings other than the bridges, no puddles. Totally dry.   I didn't realize how runnable those trails were actually.

                         Those trails are very runnable! Crowders Mtn Park and Kings Mtn Park are my favorite places to run. Just a few boulder out croppings or some steep hills that will slow you down. In the rain the trails at Crowders and Kings Mtn Parks are great to run. Once you get used to running at those parks USNWC will be a snore. You should come out for my sunday runs that I do. I've been holding it at either boulders access or kings mtn military park.

                         Goals: 1)Get my IT Band to cooperate 2) Run lots of trails. 3) Get my back to cooperate.

                           I run at Kings Mtn a lot.  Sometimes if I want to do pretty good hill work I will wander out towards Crowders Mtn.  Have you ever run the trail that starts at kings mtn and finishes at Crowders.  I can't think of the name of it but it's about 12 m one way.  It's funny, after running at those 2 parks, all the other trails seem easy and very non technical.

                            Its the Ridgeline trail that runs between the two parks. Most of our runs have been from Boulders access and go to either park and turn around for around 10 miles to King Mtn or 12 miles round trip to Crowders depending upon if we are in the mood for a easy run or a hilly one.

                              Ridgeline!  That's it.  I started out that trail last summer just to explore and had to turn around.  I always park at the visitors center on the Kings Mtn side.  I need to check out that boulders access.  I could use that for my training long runs this spring.  I live about 20 min from Kings mtn.
