    ATTQOTD: Absolutely a radler (beer and lemon or grapefruit juice) on runs up to a half. After a half, I want chocolate milk at the finish and a hefeweizen beer or two when I get home.

    Tower or Terror or Rock n' Roller Coaster Marathon 2020

    @DopeyBadger put together a fantastic spreadsheet that gives approximate times someone will arrive at certain spots on the course (like entering HS) based upon their starting coral and their anticipated pace. He re-posted it a month or two ago during a discussion of riding EE. For example, if I...

    Question for night racers... I'm running my first ultra next week. It will be an "ultra-lite" or "ultra on training wheels" for me because I only signed up for the 6-hour and not the 12-hour or 24-hour options. I finished my only marathon last fall just under 6 hours, but I'm not sure if I'm at...

    Race Report: North Shore Classic Half Marathon (Highland Park, IL) (NG / 2:30:32) Bottom line is I PR'ed on a very pleasant morning. I ran another half marathon 4 weeks ago with the goal of getting into the Disney Marathon corral E, which I accomplished. That, combined with the fact I am...

    Congrats on crushing your goal! Now to push back a little, grabbing a quick drink of water takes like 20 seconds; you learned an important lesson that most of us need to relearn from time to time.

    ATTQOTD: I have a Garmin Vivoactive 3 with music and also love it. I upgraded from a Timex Ironman last year so it was a big difference. I don't run with a phone, the the music paired with my Trekz Air headphones are a great combo. My only complaint is that if I don't have the band on pretty...

    ATTQOTD: I think part of the answer depends on your definition of "run". Many "younger", fit people (make up an age, maybe 18-30+) could walk 26.2 miles if there was no time limit. Would they be able to walk the next day? Probably not but they could say they finished a marathon. With almost any...

    Dopey Shirts Long or Short Sleeve?

    I never thought a relatively simple question would elicit such passion on both sides of the question. Personally I like the long sleeves, but I would not be at all opposed to rotating short and long either by year or by race or by event. Then perhaps the Dopey folks (not me) would end up with a...

    Wrong way question...I've been in a couple of trail races where the group in front of me went the wrong way (at least I was 95% sure it was them and not me). I yelled a warning to them and kept going the correct way. Kiddo question...When my daughter was in high school her travel soccer team...

    Race Report 5/4 - @Kerry1957 - Great Western HM (2:36:29 / 2:33:44) The Great Western is a point to point HM on an old railroad bed from Sycamore to St. Charles Illinois. As you may have guessed, its generally flat and straight, so it can be a fast course. About 600 runners finished this year...

    ATTQOTD: I usually run in SmartWool socks. In cold weather the SmartWool Run Cold are fantastic. I have tried and like several other brands for warmer weather including Injinji, Balega, and Wrightsocks, but I always seem to end up wearing SmartWool PhD Run Light low cuts. My only complaint...

    ATTQOTD: Nike Terra Kiger (trail shoes) is the only shoe I have used since starting the second phase of my running "career" a few years ago after a decade or two hiatus. I've worn out several pairs of 3's and 4's and am looking forward to the just released 5's when my current pair of 4's wears...
