Happy birthday PR Princess and Queen of Queens Ilene
I know I`m off base in everything else but I hope being a time zone-and-half away from you didn`t make me miss the boat on your birthday by too much. It doesn`t matter `cause whether it`s your birthday or not, we love you like a sister, if not more. Have another imPRessive year.
Regarding my 200th marathon in 8:16:36.6 at age 73 compared to Ed Whitlock’s 2:54:48 at age 73 and my first one at 3:52:15 at age 34, "That was a good day. It was never a struggle, . . . . almost like walking"
Happy to the woman who conquered just about every race she ran in last year, no matter the distance. 2013 is looking to be a good one for you Ilene. Hope there's cake and ice cream
.Happy B'Day Pal//............to One of My Favorite Runners.........

Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."
"He conquers who endures" - Persius "Every workout should have a purpose. Every purpose should link back to achieving a training objective." - Spaniel
Trails are hard!
The good thing about celebrating all month, is that I'm not late to wish you a Happy Birthday. Couldn't come up with a decent cake, but here's a little symbol of all of last year's races and most likely this year's, too.
Need a fast half for late fall. Then I need to actually train for it.
Happy Birthday Ilene. Did you get regular kitkats or the dark chocolate? Did you eat them while watching the Hobbit?
And so it goes
Happy Birthday - have a wonderful year and may the wind be at your back!
Regular chocolate...they didn't make it past the previews.....luckily I had an apple too.
