    “I don't run to add days to my life, I run to add life to my days.”


    Another month come and gone... time to post your monthly mileage, and any PRs or AG awards for April.   Awards given for most miles, fewest miles, average, median, prime numbers, and cool totals, as well as for any other award-worthy achievements!    I always look forward to these monthly threads - thanks for playing!


    This is in Cheyenne Mountain State Park, looking up at Cheyenne Mountain (where the NORAD bunker is).  It was a beautiful place for a trail race!


    I hammered down the trail, passing rocks and trees like they were standing still.

    Trails are hard!

      Hi Carolyn.  Nice picture.


      I guess I'll start off.  I claim 112.5 miles this month for a new high.  Would have hit a little higher if my foot had cooperated.  I'll catch up next month.


      also a 10K PR this month.


      thank you kindly.

      Need a fast half for late fall.  Then I need to actually train for it.

          Thanks wild!  This was a great month...I met Holly!  I also had a 2nd place AG award in the Kentucky Derby Marathon.


          I had to go out, today, and get something with .8 miles in it to get to an even number for the month...I only managed 2.8


          April: 178

                  82.9 - including 25.5 for Boston - still having a hard time writing about it...........time heals



                    April    103 miles

                    YTD    402 miles


                    Would have been better if I didn’t have a foot injury and skipped 2 runs that should have added about 20 miles.

                          141.6 for April, 744.0 YTD.


                          PR at Boston, 4:00:52.  I am thankful for whatever made me run faster that day, and I keep the victims close in my heart.


                          Lovely photo, Carolyn.  That's a startling blue sky.

                            109.6 for me. That includes 26.2 at Boston, and it's been difficult to get moving again afterwards..

                              105.9 in April, which isn't so bad, considering I took a week off.

                              Without ice cream there would be darkness and chaos.



                                I was psyched to hit a prime number with the great Wild, but then I saw 3 other people already beat me here with prime numbers (37, 103, 109).  I hope there are enough awards to go around.

                                And so it goes
