Well done, Paul!

congrats to Paul -- hope you didn't have the rain and wind we had up here.
Belatedly, I'll say I was at my brother's wedding last weekend, which was fun, and also we got to run on the riverwalk in Jersey City, which is lovely -- right along the Hudson so fabulous view of Manhattan skyline.
It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
Ah, RA is back -- all is right with my world.
Rough run for me this morning -- felt hard and the HR shows it.
12.2 miles, 1:46:10, 8:40/mi, AHR 156 (80% MHR)
5@9:07(146), 2@8:45(157), 5.25@8:12(164)
Perry - I'm not sure I have ever heard Jersey City and lovely in the same sentence
I heard it claimed they spent hundreds of millions rehab'ing it over the past years
Paul, saw your time but my phone wouldn't let me post to say congratulations, marathoner! Can't wait to hear the details.
Thanks for your support as I trained for my half. It's in the books as a new personal best--minute-forty off my previous PR. 1:48:56. Thanks again, guys.
Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. (Heb. 12:1b) Mile by Mile
Yes Team Blister ROCKS!!

Sorry I am late on giving you a great job on your 100 mile race. I can't imagine running 60 miles, crap I can't imagine running 30 miles. I know it wasn't the day you wanted but holy crap that is a long ways to run.
Congrats on your first marathon. Am excited to hear the details.
That is one awesome half marathon. great work
Sorry to hear about the injury. I got that really bad once (from orthotics) that was when I tried graston. Any idea what brought that on? My RP swears too she can loose more weight when running less. I feel bad for her because she tries really hard to loose weight but it won't budge. I have to work to loose but maintaining is pretty easy. However now I'm on medicine that makes me not hungry, so I eat to live, run to live, not sure which. Think I'd rather be a healthy weight and not need the medicine.
Dam, I totally missed the lace bra post. I hope you run with the matching thong panties. Makes me twinch thinking about it.
Ran 12 with TP at 9:00 min pace. She was tired so we had to slow down, my legs wanted to run. Bad thing about running with TP.
40 minute PR?? Wow. Congratulations!
I think that was one minute and 40 seconds but it's still pretty awesome.
Off to start the next thread.
I can't see it for some reason.
Yeah, don't make me start the new weekly. That's pretty bad when the farthest west coaster has to do it...
Congratulations, Paul! That's awesome and I know what you mean about feeling everyone else "watching" your race. Pretty cool feeling, isn't it? You did great to pick it up again at the end. That means you gave your legs the break they needed without losing too much time.
Woohoo on the PR, Vix!! That's awesome too. I knew you'd do well on this. All that self-doubting talk... Pshaw. You rock, girl!
Ok, a new week. C'mon Dave...
Woohoo, I started running earlier than Lou yesterday morning it looks like -- we jogged from the car at 0709. I got up at 0500 for the Veteran's Day 10K is why. Not that I plan to attempt to make any type of pattern of trying to get up earlier or as early as Lou!
