  • I'm so behind on my running goal for this month with only 48 miles on the books and I leave for vacation on Thursday. I'm heading to Ireland and will be traveling to different cities almost every day. I'm throwing in some running clothes just in case. Yesterday was another day spent hiking on the AT. We covered 9.03 miles.…
  • You are probably finished by now but I hope you had a great race!
  • I met a friend in town and we ran 5 miles this morning before work. Thanks for all the responses on the monthly question. @SwimBikeRun_Mom I'm guilty of keeping my head down when running up hills. It's discouraging to me to see how far I have to go to get to the top!
  • I got out this morning in time to see the beautiful moon. I ran 5.07 very slow miles. My watch suggested that I take a rest day today which always psychs me out. I think it sets me up with a mindset of I can't do this, but I showed it! Lol! I'm sure it's looking at my data from my run and saying I told you so. Question of…
  • Way to go @polskagirl01! You're a beast!
  • Hope you are going still strong in your race @polksagirl01! @kgirlhart – Goodness that was a damaging hail storm. I bet your sister was scared being pelted by those hail balls. Glad she wasn’t injured. Glad you are feeling better @marisap2010. @Mari33a – I hate it when I forget to start my watch or pause and then forget to…
  • I fell behind on reading and posting this week but have finally caught up with the reading. I gave lots of likes and hugs as appropriate! I did not run a single step last weekend. On Saturday the weather was stormy so I "cross trained" by painting a bedroom, cleaning carpets, painting a couple pieces of furniture and…
  • @Faebert - @Scott6255 is right. You have had a rough couple of years so be gentle on yourself. I’m glad you took some time off to heal after your nasty fall. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other and you will eventually get back to your usual fit self. @eleanorhawkins – You have been a busy bee. Good to see you…
  • I ran with a friend 4.69 miles this morning. Overall pace was slower than normal because she needed to stop and walk a few times. Temp was 68F with 84% humidity. I was a sweaty mess! @SummerSkier - I love that Ray Stevens song! Our theme song? Beautiful pictures @polskagirl01! I would count the hike as a recovery run. It…
  • I went out before work this morning for 3.02 miles plus a 1.13 mile cooldown walk afterwards. Another beautiful morning with the temp at 54F and a light breeze. I saw a couple of deer in two different places. They were pretty far apart but I couldn’t swear that they were two different deer or the same two in just a…
  • Yes I didn't feel any twinges while I was running.
  • Went out a few minutes after 6 this morning and the sky was already getting light with streaks of blue and pink in the East. Temp was in the mid-50s. A perfect morning for running. I got in 5.23 miles. I tried to focus on shorter steps but even though my overall average pace was 45 seconds faster per mile than yesterday,…
  • 5/1 – 5.34 miles + 1.13 walking Yesterday, I was still feeling twinges in my lower back when I stepped a certain way or overreached so I didn’t run. I decided to give it a test this morning knowing that I was close to home and I could stop anytime the back started hurting. All went well and I had time to get a short walk…
  • My back is 99.9% better today - I'm so thankful. I'm still being cautious in my movements but hopefully by babying it a few days, the pain will not return. One of my friends suggested it might be my piriformis rather than back. IDK. Anyway, thanks everyone for your good wishes. Sharon is doing fabulous! She ended up having…

  • Congratulations on your 10K race and age group placement @kgirlhart! You did great! @polskagirl01 - That is so sad that there was yet another mining accident. I used to work for a coal company and shortly after we acquired another company there was an explosion at one of the underground mines resulting in several deaths.…

  • It has been raining here all day so I didn’t get out for a run this morning. Aine8046 – So sorry about your knee. Hope it is healed soon. Lovely photo. HAPPY BIRTHDAY @kgirlhart! Too bad the temperature wasn’t 54F this morning! Those blue bells are so pretty. @shanaber - Thanks for the article on the different theories as…
  • I spent the long weekend hiking instead of running. It’s looking doubtful that I will make my running goal this month but there is always next month! Hiking report in the spoiler if you would like to read it. @quilteryoyo – Tippy was clearly preparing for her day when you snapped her picture! Ouch @Scott6255. I’m amazed…
  • There was a 50% chance of rain this morning so I decided last night not to get up in time to run. Of course when I got up it was not raining but I didn't have the time for a run at that point. Just as well. I'm heading out of town after work and my stinky running clothes would have sat in the car all weekend. Plus I wasn't…
