Biggest Loser Run/Walker Thread 2012/13--Everyone Welcome! :)

Welcome to everyone! We love to chat about running/walking/working out, etc all while trying to keep that weight in check. And we have even been known to go off topic on occasion.

The main BL thread gets a little busy sometimes so this is a great place to talk about upcoming races/training etc.

Thought we'd start off with intros for anyone that's new. I will try to keep the first page updated with race and WISH meet updates.

Name: Alice

DisName: tiki23

Upcoming Races: Tacoma to Narrows 5K; ORRC Club Summer Solstice 5K; Disney Happy Haunted 5K; maybe Run for Your Lives 5K obstacle race

Completed Races in 2012 (or earlier): Expedition Everest Challenge; UW Women's Sports Medicine Mother-Daughter 5K

Favorite Race: EEC!!It was my 1st race!!

Anything else you want to share (age, where you live, etc): I'll be 50 on Saturday and I'm celebrating by running a 5K with a hill called "The Monster!" I used to be an athelete in school, but now as a "mature adult" I am still very much a beginning runner. I'm starting to hit my stride though, and the WISH board has been a great help.

And for fun, favorite running shoe: Umm...I only have one pair so far Asics Gel Phoenix 3. I bought these after a little research - I have had trouble with plantar fasciitis and shin splints - and trying on several brands/styles of shoes. The shoes combined with exercises I found on a link though the DIS have been a big help.

Hi! Yay for this thread - thanks, Rose!

Name: Liz
DisName: myweegirls
Upcoming Races: Tower of Terror 10-Miler (September 2012), Donald 1/2 Marathon (January 2013)
Completed Races in 2012 (or earlier): None. Ever. Not one. I was on the verge of my first 5K in April when I broke my toe and had to stop cold for 6 weeks. I just got running again a week ago, thank goodness - it felt great!
Favorite Race: I'm going with the Princess Half, which I'm not registered for next year - that'll be the year after, maybe...
Anything else you want to share (age, where you live, etc): I'll be 40 on August 1st, I have a wonderful DH and two beautiful DDs (Anna, 7, and Tessa, 5). We live in northern VA, and I'm originally from CT (and lived in Boston for several years).
And for fun, favorite running shoe: I love my Brooks Adrenaline! I went for a gait analysis when I started to get serious about this, and I was amazed at the difference the right pair of shoes made in how I felt out there.

Welcome, everyone!

Upcoming Races: planning on registering for my 1st 5k this week
Completed Races in 2012 (or earlier): Nope
Favorite Race: Nada
Anything else you want to share (age, where you live, etc): Just turned 30- live in MD just outside Washington DC- 1 husband, 9 critters, no kids just yet
And for fun, favorite running shoe: I go between Asics gel and 5 fingers. When I go solely with the running shoes I get terrible shin splints, but when I run only in 5 fingers I get terrible back aches. So I have to mix them up. I have really weak ankles (need surgery on one in fact), so my body has to compensate for the instability.

As for my running career, I have started C25K maybe 6 times. I always get about half way there and then something happens, I skip a few runs and then never bother to restart. I am signing up for my first race this week so I have all summer to finish the program before the actual race. I am hoping an upcoming race makes all the difference in keeping the motivation.

Hi Buffy! Larry's Race sounds awesome. I have found with the whole getting healthy thing is it's a process. Which stinks cause I am always in a big hurry to "fix" things. Glad you joined us!

Happy early birthday! A bunch of us have had problems with p-f and shin splints. I am glad you have found something that is working for you. So what is "the Monster" race????

If you let me know what months your races are I will add them to the first post.

Hi Liz! I'm glad your toe is on the mend! I really wanted to do TOT (it is my favorite ride at WDW) but our schedule this fall just wouldn't work. Will look for a race report from you about how much fun it is!

I am in Brooks Ghost now, but am in the process of switching shoes.

Hi Carla Rae!

I had a nasty problem with my foot/ankle on my right foot last year. Tendonitis in almost every tendon, a nasty ankle sprain, fat pad injury, plantar-fasciitis. Anyhow, went through the whole physical therapy thing and what I am finding is really helping with the ankle strength is the tree pose in yoga. There are alot of balancing things they had me to do in pt, but this requires no extra stuff to do it. At first I was sooooooo bad at it. Very weak, almost fell over, etc. But it is crazy how much stronger my ankle has gotten. A lot of people start off doing it beside/near a wall. Of course, ignore all this if you have some condition which will keep you from doing this, but I have seen such great results, I thought I'd throw it out there.

Let us know what 5k you register for.

****
Ok all you BL runner/walkers--Please let me know if I leave anything off of the first post.

Thanks Rose!

The EEC was the last one on 5/5.

The UW Mother-Daughter run was on 5/13.

The Tacoma to Narrows 5K is on 6/9 - it has a hill called "The Monster" on the course - I didn't realize that until after I had registered!

ORRC Summer Solstice 5K is on 6/21.

The Disney Haunted 5K Trail Run is on 9/29 the morning of the ToT 10 Miler (I plan to run the 10 Miler next year!)

Hi Dottie! Glad to see you. You all are posting faster than I can comment. I'm still not sure why I am infamous. Looking forward to seeing you again at W&D!

I was really into pilates for a while, but never into yoga. I will certainly try that!

I'll join you all.



Name: Amanda
DisName: Sissy_ib
Upcoming Races: First Annual "Fighting ALS with JAY 5K" June 23rd We really only picked this race because it coincided with us finishing C25K but I am very excited for it.
Wounded Warrior Project 8K San Antonio September 16
Run for the Fund Sea World San Antonio October 6 I have not decided if I am going to do the 5K or 10K (probably the 5)

Completed Races in 2012 (or earlier): The last (and only) race I did was way back in June 2007. I was in Air Force Basic training and we ran as a group and won first place for the female flights.
Favorite Race: See above
Anything else you want to share (age, where you live, etc): I turned 30 a few months ago. I live in San Antonio Texas. I was in the Air Force for 4 years but after the first few months I didn't enjoy running or any exercise really. When it is your job and forced it is not as much fun as when you get to do it for yourself. The last 6 months I was in I was on a running waver for my ankle so before starting C25K it had been about a year since I had run. Tomorrow we start week 6 and I am really enjoying it. It is nice to have a goal and a new hobby with my DH. Plus we are getting healthier and helping raise money for some great charities. My goal is to do a Run Disney event but we wont be back to WDW until at least 2014. After we finish C25K I will start training for a 10K then half marathon. I have already looked up half marathons in our area and there a few in the fall/winter I am interested in but I really want to take it one step at a time. I have given myself a year to complete one though.
And for fun, favorite running shoe: I wear Asics. And I just bought my first air of men's because they fit my wide feet so much better.
