  • Yes, I use the heat maps quite a bit. It’s the main reason I pay for the subscription. That’s how I found the nature preserve trail! In more densely populated areas I love that it labels common start points and bathrooms too. It takes a lot of guess work out of running in a place I am unfamiliar with. At the hill country…
  • June total: 10.3/117 miles 6/1: 4.1 mile 6/2: 3 miles 6/3: 3.2 miles Humidity was lower this morning. Made for a pretty pleasant run. I’ve been tweaking my routes at this house to find some options I really like for distances I run frequently. I think today’s 3 mile route is a winner. It has a little loop at the mid point,…
  • @scott6255 Five years! Your consistency is impressive. @marisap2010 Crazy Laps!!
  • June total: 7.1/117 miles 6/1: 4.1 mile 6/2: 3 miles Went back to the newly discovered nature preserve trail. There were actually people out there today. Saw 2 women running, 1 guy fishing, and a woman loading her SUP into her truck. Also saw some deer and lots of birds.
  • @shanaber I like that shoe rack idea. Such a better use of space than on the floor.
  • June total: 4.1/117 miles 6/1: 4.1 miles Super humid this morning combined with hills. It was a tough one. But Strava is saying it was an average effort. Didn’t feel average for sure. Later in the morning it rained pretty good for 10 minutes and that really knocked the humidity out of the air. We have a couple of wet…
  • @7lenny7 and @kgirlhart You both absolutely crushed your goals! Awesome work! @7lenny7 and @eleanorhawkins I’ll have to try the SiS gels. I tried the Maureen isotonic gel - wasn’t my favorite. But it’s also completely unflavored, and that really put me off. Maybe these will hit the sweet spot. I like the idea of not having…
  • My plan calls for 117 miles. We’ll see. That’s a lot of miles in the summer but most of the runs are fairly short. There are just a lot of them.
  • @ContraryMaryMary Hills will humble you for sure but definitely make you stronger. I have no magic bullet for you but I do think the sports detergents work better than regular ones. Lately I have also been making sure to get out of my wet clothes asap and drying my clothes out completely before putting them in the hamper.…
  • @marisap2010 Meal prep works so well for me. Makes the rest of the week so much simpler. @Scott6255 Thanks for setting us up. @quilteryoyo That’s a lot of work and a lot of sweat! @eleanorhawkins That picture is great! Definitely more superwoman than drunk duck!

  • @quilteryoyo The picture with all the rocks is a wet weather creek that the trail crosses. I like hiking those but definitely would hurt myself trying to run it! @eleanorhawkins I now want a giant firehouse sprinkler on all my runs. That sounds fantastic! Great job on your race. Those conditions sound super tough. You…

  • @shanaber Super cool shots! I am also glad you didn’t get more seriously injured with your fall. It’s too soon for another injury!! I hope so too. But if you don’t, make some adjustments to your plan for a few weeks and don’t push too hard.In the long run, you’ll likely do more harm than good by trying to complete exercise…
  • @shanaber I have been following Mike Wardian's progress on Instagram. I can't even fathom doing that. He is currently on 27 of mostly 50+ mile days. It's insane!! And, no I can not imaging ever being able to run a HM that fast. Super impressive! That's pretty close to my first 10k time.
  • @Scott6255 I would love to hear what you think of the ucan after a few uses. I know I will need to tweak my nutrition a bit as I get into marathon training and was looking at the ucan as a preworkout. I get blood sugar crashes so it seemed like it could be a good option for me for longer runs. @marisap2010 Sorry to hear…

  • @polskagirl01 That’s awesome! Congrats on doing so well! #3 female in such a tough race is such a cool accomplishment. @gmiller725 Welcome! Are you following any sort of a plan to get yourself up and running? This group will do nothing but encourage you so jump right in and let us know how things are going! @scott6255…
  • @eleanorhawkins That's so weird about the wear on your shoes. I'd bet it's a faulty shoe if none of your others look like that. It takes time to cause that much wear unless you were scooter braking! Did those shoes need a break-in period? Can you still find them? Normally I would be very team nothing new on race day, but I…

  • @7lenny7 Good work on your speed workout. I have the same problem with garmin and the average pace thing. I wish the refresh on the pace was faster. Once I have been doing a certain workout/pace for a few runs I can kind of tell if I am in the ballpark. But those first few runs I am sort of guessing and the watch pace…
  • @SwimBikeRun_Mom You may be the first person I have known who ranks the sections that way! I know so many runners that started biking for cross training than ended up doing a triathlon. Most of them say the swim is the hardest part. It would be for me too.

  • @teresa502 Laurel Falls is beautiful! Have a great time in Ireland. Can't wait to see some pics. @katharmonic Enjoy your family time! @kgirlhart Super cool plant! I wouldn't go so far as to say the weather was good for the race, but I'll post on that in a bit. @polskagirl01 I didn't understand taking the medal either. I…
  • Looks like I'm getting my wish for a rainy race!! And it's cooler than forecasted yesterday. 70F at race start. That's a huge difference! I just finished packet pickup and am one of few who seem happy about the rain. Several people were just taking their medal and bailing. It's a steady rain but definitely not a downpour.…
  • @7lenny7 Good luck with the HM training. I hope you get that PR! @Scott6255 I love hummingbirds! We get a lot of them in the hill country. I never realized they made little chirping noises until recently as I've always seen them through windows.
