Thanks!

It was a gorgeous morning for a run; no rain, the sun was shining - perfect!

Looks like you had a great time Alice. What a beautiful day for a race.

How is everyone? I think there are several people in this group getting ready for Disney marathon weekend in January.

I have one more really long run coming up this weekend. Fingers crossed that the weather cooperates. The plan is to go 23 miles. I think once this run is over I will be able to relax a little bit. We ran 6 miles on Saturday and worked on slowing down our pace in the hopes that our 23 mile run goes a little better than the 20 did. We made a rookie mistake on the 20 and went out to fast. The last couple of miles were brutal and I was miserable. It was pretty awful. I am cautiously optimistic that the 23 is going to go well!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and is doing well with their training!

Alice, I saw on the exercise thread that you have been ill. I'm so sorry and hope that you have a speedy recovery.

I think I know who is going to Marathon W/E in a couple of weeks but let's do a roll call to make sure!

I'll be there! Running my first ever half. I completed 14 miles on Saturday and am now in taper mode. I got a few miles in Christmas morning...then woke up middle of the night with a stomach bug. *Nice* Feeling better now - just taking it easy and glad to be in taper mode!

Also need to get myself back on track overall - I'm carrying around a few extra pounds from vacation/holidays/etc despite the running. I'll definitely be focusing on getting those off!

Thanks, Lisa - I'm feeling better! Commitment Day cancelled the New Year's run in my city - boo! - so not sure what I'll do to kick off the New Year now.

Excited to hear about The Marathon weekend!

Checking in...not that I do that very often.

Last Sunday (12/30) was the Biggest Loser RunWalk 5K (and half marathon) in Panama City Beach. It was so much fun! Jackie and Dan Evans (mother/son team from Season 5) were there as was Danny Cahill (season 8 winner). My sister-in-law and I were walking participants in the 5K. Danny actually walked and talked with us for a bit, telling us about the first 5K he finished and what it was like on the ranch. Pretty exciting! There were cameras and TV cameras everywhere, and bits and whatnot are supposed to air on The Biggest Loser this season (and if someone else has done one of these races and I've missed it and you've already heard all this...sorry for the repeat!)

We both finished at 54:40 (which is an improvement of 3-4 minutes over our last 5K, so Yay, us!) Because my sister-in-law was the ONLY 5K walking participant in her age category, she actually got a 1st place ribbon. I was 6 of 7 in my age category, and we came in 74 and 75 of 112. Maybe not the BEST stats, but we're still pretty darn proud of ourselves and looking forward to the next race, which, for us, will likely be in April.

Oh, yeah...did I mention it was cold? No spectators whatsoever.

Bummer about the race cancellation, Alice. It's not really racing weather in our neck of the woods either.

I'm really looking forward to Marathon weekend. Just kind of at the knee knocking stage now.

Congratulations on your finish and your new PR! This is an exciting stage of racing because you learn so much and can really see big changes from race to race. Keep up the good work!

Woohoo! We have a fancy early dinner that evening at Narcoossee's (YUM), where I'm planning on some great protein. I don't think I can make the WISH meet and the ADR on time, so we might have to find each other another way...

I'm getting to the knee-knocking stage, too. And I just signed up for my third half of the year - a Diva half in northern VA wine country in September. If I do the Wine & Dine, too, as I've been pondering, I'll officially be crazy.

I'm scrapping my race this coming weekend. I'm just not in the condition I thought I would be, so I'll get back on my training schedule and save myself the $30 for the run towards new shoes.

Bumping!!


I did my first race of the season.
St Joes 3 mile run - time 40:35

Next up is the Larry Pontbriant Memorial run May 19th. I hope my knee is better by then.
