Dearlene -.How’s the PR’s comin so far this year, especially in last week's 15K?.Nearing the end of the steady 2% grade down from Snoqualmie Tunnel to the valley floor at North Bend, Washington, francesca referred me to the Vermont 100-Mile Endurance Run home page where I found she’s one of 300 runners this weekend who will “attempt to finish” the “equal ascent/descent of approximately 14,000'” where, with “only a few stretches (that) are flat, . . . the last 30 miles are rather challenging,” and with erika testing her shin splint recovery on 16.5 miles old mining roads with 1648 feet of elevation gain and 3198 feet of elevation drop, I’ll try to join my 81yo IM mentor (he still does ‘em; I don’t) in the Swedish SumerRun from the Swedish Hospital where I was born some time ago along the top of Capitol Hill for a mile down the other side and back up again. .7/22 tetsujin - Swedish SumerRun 10K (Seattle) - thongs
ps - do they have any races on Signal Hill?.
pps - be careful erika; you have a big race to host in two months.
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"
Yes, Tetsujin209, I did get a PR at that 15k. but I am no where near as awesome as you and Francesca or Erika!
They do not hold any races on Signal Hill. Once upon a time they tried to, but the injuries and carnage were terrific.
July 28 Ellwood City, Pa. Run with the Big Dawgs 5k presented by the Big Beaver Big Dawgs ( my other running club )
Courage ! Do one brave thing today...then run like hell.
I havent been posting my races ahead of time much lately, but am very excited to be running the Beach 2 Beacon, Cape Elizabeth, Maine Aug. 4!
Also signed up for Pumpkinman Sprint Triathlon Sat. Sept 8 So. Berwick, Maine and
Lobster Dash, Sat. Sept. 22 in Ogunquit, Maine ...... guess I'll be doing a lot of traveling to Maine in the near future!!
