    Hoping everyone is doing well.

    Trying to go for running 4 days a week with the 8 weeks we have left. Did a 6 mile yesterday, came home with GI issues and had to stop 2 miles into my 8 miler today with the same. Not sure what's going on so hopefully it's just a fluke. Have a 4 miler scheduled for tomorrow but should I tack on the 6 miles I missed today or just do the 4 miles? Resting Friday and then a 17 mile run on Saturday. Hopefully my stomach stops acting up soon, I want to eat with abandon tomorrow!

    BTW everyone, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

    I have an overuse injury in my big toe joint. The dr said to RICE it for a couple of weeks. He said crosstraining with a bike should be okay, but no running and minimal walking. I am supposed to do 16 miles this weekend. Would an acceptable substitute be to ride a bike for about the same amount of time as the 16 miles would have taken me to complete(i.e. bike for about 4 hours since I make 15-16 minutes per mile wogging)?

    Typically, it is 0%........they don't offer a marathon discount. That being said, last year one of the WISHers posted a code for a Sports discount. It worked--I used it.

    I was diagnosed with it two weeks before the Chicago Marathon. My doctor prescribed a Z-Pak and a nose spray (because antihistamine pills cause dehydration). It worked out fine for me by race start.

    uuuggghhhh it IS a scary thing!

    i'm still with this darn knee injury. i can't walk. like, really at all. i'm so bummed about this. my PT said that the marathon isn't definitely out of the question but i sure hope i can at least walk soon so that it seems like it's still a possibility.

    congrats to everyone who is working hard towards this goal! i know how hard it is. i hope to be there with you in january!
