Perch's Profile "I don't know if running adds years to your life, but it definitely adds life to your years." - Jim Fixx "The secret is to make in your mind possible what was not possible before. The secret is to make easy what was difficult, instead to make difficult what really is easy." - Coach Renato Canova
aka Mrs. WillRunForBeer, MD, USA Marathoning, the triumph of desire over reason
"Some are the strong, silent type. You can't put your finger on exactly what it is they bring to the table until you run without them and then you realize that their steadiness fills a hole that leaks energy in their absence." - Kristin Armstrong

Running has given me the courage to start, the determination to keep trying, and the childlike spirit to have fun along the way - Run often and run long, but never outrun your Joy of running!

Good job Perch and PDR!
7 hacking miles at an easy pace. The middle 5 miles were run between 8:40 and 8:50 mins/mile. The Avg. HR was about 144, perhaps about 5 bpm higher than it should be, so I must still be not at full strength.
The legs felt great after the forced time off last week. Nice weather 61 and 68%.
I'm already signed up for next year's Miami Half Marathon. This race owes me one bigtime! (Would you believe it? The Registration Blitz opened at 6:00 AM this morning and over 500 people have already signed up for the HM as of 8:00 AM. Wow!)
Very few people could have done the work you have done over the past two years and remained healthy through it all.

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."
"During a marathon, I run about two-thirds of the time. That's plenty." - Margaret Davis, 85 Ed Whitlock regarding his 2:54:48 marathon at age 73, "That was a good day. It was never a struggle."
