    I'm in for 26.2 miles from 9-7 to 9-14.

    I had no idea @PastorVincent was an introvert. He's the most extroverted introvert I've ever known.

    I thought the same thing.

    Great words to live by from @PastorVincent. Thought of him a lot during my 6 mile run this morning.
    First real time running on the treadmill. Wasn't completely terrible, but it wasn't much better than running outside. We keep the house at 78°F in the summer, and with the ceiling fan it was basically just as hot as running outside at 5am. But it will be good when (if) winter comes. Then the house will be about 68-70°F, and no 20mph wind 😁


    How are you going to get your ice beard on the treadmill?

    I’ll do the challenge for @PastorVincent . Yesterday I dedicated my run to him.
    Tired to watch some of the funeral today but had to go get my son.
    It’s still quite hard to believe.

    Nice race report @katharmonic ! You did fantastic! Love that telling your friend you were running a race gave you extra incentive to not slow down. I often have the same thoughts toward the end of a run/race. @PastorVincent would have been proud.

    @rheddmobile You did great! Lovely pictures! Thanks for sharing.

    Hi all, did my long run this morning. Glorious running weather; some sunshine but fresh and breezy too. Even managed to sprint the finish and it felt so good. Recent events have reminded me to be grateful for everything I have and all that I can do. Feel like I followed that today. Planning to head out again for a walk/run with the kids for couch to 5k.

    Have a good Sunday everyone x
