  • Stay safe @AlphaHowls!! @martaindale - the HM sounds awesome! Will keep it on my bucket list for when I can get back to running, even if I do a shorter distance. Have fun exploring - it is a beautiful area!
  • @swenson19d - I am so happy to see things falling into place for you even if Eric is continuing to be terrible! I am sure getting your Dobies back will be wonderful. Is someone home during the day who can let them out/take them for a walk so they don't get too bored? I hope you can get to a place to have more of your…
  • @tarun_yadavA - Happy Birthday!! Have fun with all the celebrations!! That cake looks great and your boys are adorable! @martaindale - It is probably too close to your race to try anything new but you might check out KT tape wraps for PF. Maybe for after the race if it is still hurting. I am so excited and admittedly…
  • I haven't posted here in a while but I am still getting out to walk with Hobbes the Vizsla when I can and running vicariously by reading about you alls' runs and exploits. We went up the coast for a few days and Hobbes and I hiked around Fiscalini Ranch preserve. I planned to do around 2 miles but got lost and ended up…
  • @swenson19d - yes counseling services are offered and are part of my care team. I see the palliative care PA at least once a month and he is also available by phone or text. He has encouraged us to get away, not think about the treatments as much as possible and just have a few normal days; a nice dinner, a glass of wine…
  • Thanks @swenson19d! Journaling does seem to help. I hope DD was just feeling out of sorts and missing Alex too. I am sure she is missing having you right there with her as well. I miss cooking. For the most part I just don't have the energy for it much these days. Fortunately I made spaghetti sauce and some chili and froze…

  • Thanks @quilteryoyo - I am not sure he would do it but I started a while ago too. I woke up one day with all these thoughts in my head and needed to get them down. I don't do it every day or even ever4y week but it does give me a safe space to put down my feelings, frustrations and... fears honestly. Mostly things I don't…
  • @AlphaHowls - sending you big {{HUGS}}. Definitely have to find those things in your life that you can control because life will certainly keep throwing curveballs!
  • @quilteryoyo - it is just a week but comes out to almost 2 weeks from chemo day to chemo day with the week in between. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. It definitely helps! I worry about my DH - I know he worries about me so much and has no real outlet. I keep trying to get him to get out, go for a walk, go to a…
  • Congratulations @Laurz9191!! That is an awesome PR! @ContraryMaryMary - looks like a great place to ride and explore. Sorry about the sore bum though! @tarun_yadavA - love the new shoes!! Please tell me you aren't wearing the orthotics with them. I learned my lesson of no correction on top of correction - it can lead to…
  • @CMorning99 - I hope you were able to get the reselling tech issues straightened out! What a mess! I really dislike the little barky dogs. I do believe you can work with them when they are young to teach them not to bark or bark so much. Even Hobbes knows 'no bark' as well as 'enough' for when I want him to bark but not go…
  • @tarun_yadavA and @quilteryoyo - Awesome that you were able to meet up! The candy looks delicious. @tarun_yadavA - There are actually several breweries nearby here. We have only been to a handful of them as we aren't huge beer drinkers and tend more towards wines (no wineries nearby though). You can check the breweries out…
  • @7lenny7 - looks like a beautiful place to run! Not sure I would want to run the entire way with wet feet though. Why don't you come over to April and join us there! https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10912663/april-2024-monthly-running-challenge#latest
  • Thanks for setting this up again @AlphaHowls!! I am having a bit of a tough time with the new treatment regimen that pretty much has me at medical appointments 4-5 days a week so I have no clue how much I will be able to get out. I also realize that I am not going to be able to run again at least anytime in the near term.…

  • @quilteryoyo - love your wildflower pictures. So pretty! Hope you can get the part you need quickly. @7lenny7 - seems like you roadtrip to GA is going well so far especially finding great places to run! @TheMrWobbly - whether running or walking and running time on your feet is important training too and you got that done.…
  • @quilteryoyo - the pictures with your grand-nieces are adorable. What a beautiful family! I bet your mom is just thrilled too. Because my blood counts were so low this last week my chemo treatment was cancelled (good news/bad news). It was good because our daughter came home and I felt good, but bad to delay treatment…
  • Hi there @CMorning99, @quilteryoyo and anyone else lurking here! So glad to see an update from you @CMorning99 and that things seem to be going well for you. I am so happy you were able to get into a new place even if it is smaller. Great opportunity to downsize 😁 I agree with @quilteryoyo that you will get used to it and…
  • @quilteryoyo - I'm 68! Before I believe @MobyCarp was the oldest. I still miss him.
  • Happy Birthday @Teresa502!! I am pretty sure I am the oldest person in this group and somehow I think all of you all are much much younger than me! So you can't possibly be 59 - 39 maybe? Definitely not 59! I am so happy to see that @ContraryMaryMary, @Laurz9191 and @7lenny7 are all on the mend! @SummerSkier - I also…
  • @quilteryoyo - it always tough when you have engagements that involve food that you have little to no control over. I know for me if I knew ahead of time that I would be eating elsewhere I would plan to have a healthy snack at home of something I made so I wasn't ravenous when all the other choices were available. I would…
  • @chris_in_cal - I also hate those retractable leashes especially when the owners are paying too attention to where/what their dog is doing! @eleanorhawkins - WOW! What a race! I can't even imagine running in those conditions but it sounds like you enjoyed it and made the most of it! Fantastic job! Also I loved the goat!…
  • @chris_in_cal - your timing was certainly better than mine. It wasn't raining when we headed out and wasn't supposed to rain at all. Interesting that as it was pouring on us my weather app kept saying it wasn't and that it was partly cloudy. Technically it did get partly cloudy for an instant when the rain stopped before…
  • I'm in for 30 for March. Hoping I can extend it like I did in February but it just depends on what treatments the doctors have in store for me. Have an appointment tomorrow so may need to adjust afterwards. @ContraryMaryMary - Hooray for an easy great feeling run to start the month!
  • So much great running this month regardless if you made goal or not! I have been reading along and liking or hugging where appropriate. @AlphaHowls - I had no idea new cars no longer have a spare. Our Subaru is a 2018 but it has one of those donut tires, not a full size spare. I thought that was bad enough... I'm glad you…
  • Oh WOW @AlphaHowls, that sky is incredible!
  • @Laurz9191 - I hope your daughter gets well soon and that you or the rest of the family don't get it! @tarun_yadavA - love that your son got out for another run with you! Will tomorrow be #50 for your streak? I agree with @quilteryoyo on the color of the filling. I like pistachio ok but not sure I could deal with that…
