Welcome Maryanne. The site Maura just posted on stretching looks great. I stretch a lot after running and even bought a DVD for extra stretching. Maura You have had quite a time since the Boston. I know you did great at the Chip and Dale, as I hold that over my son's head...almost beat by a 50+..keeps him working hard. Hope you are able to work out your injuries. Jackie You were down in my neck of the woods...I forgot about that race. I should have come over a cheered you on. Glad you had fun. AFM I'm lovin' my runnin'. I just go out (about twice a week) and run 6-9 miles and the weather has been beautiful (although the pollen is a little thick). I'm doing speed work once a week on a TM too. Plus my yoga, pilates or kettlebell DVD once a week. I hope to do a 10K next weekend and use that time if I need something fast for corral placement. Then in May I hope to run the Castaway Cay 5K. That would give me a race each month this year so I'm, thinking I should do something each month this year.
