    I love the idea of a memorial run. Participating in ones we have done before really made me feel even more connected with this group and seemed like the type of memorial our running friends would have liked.

    @Scott6255 Wow! That's an excellent HM time! I'm hoping to complete my first one in 3 hours. Yes, I'm really slow!

    Nice running @SummerSkier ! Haha about having trouble keeping up with your rocket nikes. I think your paces are amazing.

    @ContraryMaryMary I guess when you start doing things differently, you're going to feel it. You are so good at following the coach's plan, you are going to kill the 10K. Do you have a goal in mind?

    May Goal: 100 Miles

    5/2: 9.75 miles


    9.75/100  miles completed for May

    I had a really good 9.75 mile run this morning.  I probably should have gotten out earlier,  but I slept in a little.  It was 66°F with 96% humidity at the start and at the end it was 72°F but the humidity had fallen to 78%. It was warm and kind of muggy,  but I was so glad to see some sunshine that I didn't really mind.  I kind of hated to stop at 9.75, but by the time I got home I was pretty hot and I really needed to use the bathroom so I decided that 9.75 was good enough and I didn't have to go to 10.

    I think the idea of a memorial run is great. I am in, unless tutus are mandatory and then I am out. 🙃 But seriously I think it's a great idea and I think the simpler the better.

    Welcome @gamommy2 and @jane_76! And welcome back @abowersgirl!

    @skippygirlsmom I am so glad you are able to run again!

    @quilteryoyo Definitely sign up! You have plenty of time to train!

    Great run @Scott6255! It was definitely humid today, but I was still glad it wasn't raining anymore.

    You got this, @quilteryoyo. Just train as your plan requires and execute the plan. With all you've overcome, a half should be a breeze.
