Month of October - WISH Team Walkers and Runners

Hello everyone!

For those new to us, we are a group of people who are planning to participate in walking/running events throughout the year. For most of us, the ultimate goal is to train and compete in the annual WDW Half/Full marathons. We'll also be posting news and training for various other events throughout the year. We range from beginners to triathletes. Come join us, whether you're training for an event or walking/running for fitness

There will be lots of ups and downs. The more you post here, the more you will find yourself enjoying the ride. It is an incredible journey. Don't be afraid, shy or whatever to come here and just post up anything.You don't have to know us right away, or all of us at all. You will get to know some of us. It makes the event you are enjoying have MORE meaning and we love to have you.

A full race report will be coming (probably not tonight, but we'll see...) in the "race reports and encouragement" thread, but I'll just say for now the race went very well. I'm sore as can be right now, but excited to start training for my next big race in four weeks.

timmac: Good Luck on your marathon!!

Stacie: Blister. ugh. I usualy pop mine and put Hydrogen peroxide on it to dry it up as soon as it can. Use Moleskin to cover it up. There is also something called 2nd skin which might work. I will usually just lather up some Bodyglide in that area and use my good wicking/padded socks. Hope someone else has some more or better advice.

Been a bit of a busy weekend for me.
Decided at the last minute Friday night that I wanted to get up and do my miles at the beach Saturday morning and that is what I did. And boy was it wonderful. Nice to change up the scenery once in a while. Getting there right at sunrise is my favorite thing.

And later on to the Miami versus Oklahoma game and what a game it was!!

The end was just soooooo electric in the stands and exiting Landshark Stadium. Hard to descibe.

Getting home around 1am and trying to get up this morning for my 10 miles was a bit hard. I did make it outside finally and the 10 miles are now checked off my "to do" list for training for the Spacecoast Half coming up in about 55 days.

Now its time for some NASCAR racing boys!! (and girls!)

timmac- Congratulations on the marathon. I'll check out the report.

I am looking forward to the rest of October. The weather up here is usually perfect for running (when it isn't raining) and I will finally get to put that 26.2 sticker on the car (fingers crossed).

I forgot to post it on the race thread but I had a 5k last weekend. With the RnR VA Beach and Philly halves I didn't do any local races for the entire month. I managed my 4th best time in a 5k so far, 18:50. I have another race on the same course in 2 weeks so I am going to shoot for a PR. It will depend on how my long runs go between now and then.

Another reason I love October is all the Halloween themed runs. This weekend I have a run through a cemetery down in Akron. It is hilly and hard but I did it last year and had a blast. I have a wedding that day and thought I would miss it but the ceremony is at 1:00 so I'm good.

Good running/jogging/walking all.

October already! It is hard to believe.

Tracy - I would love it if I had views like that to run by! I do have the mountains, but somehow the beach just seems oh so nice.

timmac - congrats on the marathon!

AFM: I am trying to find a new race to sign up for to keep myself motivated. I loved the DL half at the end of summer, but unfortunately I don't have the money to make it out to a race at DW, so I am looking out here in the West. I was considering the Palm Springs Half Marathon in February (I probably need that much time to get back into race shape). I will have to see if the DH would be up for a trip to California in February, but I think it should work. There just are not many races in Utah (at least not the northern half) during the winter to keep me going!

Mandac have you looked into the marathons at disneyland? I'm not sure when they are, but I have read something about them somewhere.

How do ya'll stay motivated to walk/jog everyday? I have to be at work at 6:30am so the morning is out. And most times if I go after dinner I am wide awake until 11 or so. When/where do ya'll typically walk/jog? Now that the weather is cooling off I've thought about stopping at the trails that are on my home from work, but it's a 35 minute drive I don't really want to make on my days off.
