    Darien 5 Miles - Welcome Back, Baby!

    "but there was one regular stroller couple who were taking turns pushing it. Cheating, basically." Funny. I hope they're flagged before they try to get into Nationals.

    Better late than never - 100 on 100 RR

    If you run a total of 26.2 can you claim VT as another state on the road to 50 states?

    But you were right!! Someone just needed to say it. Seems like we're hesitant to ask for specific legs, but in reality they all suck so we shouldn't hesitate. Glad you stepped up.

    Thought about this a lot (sad to admit) and maybe Kip is the name of the watch instead of Eliud.

    Does make me want to go to Vermont. Good luck chasing the sub-4.

    Still cracking up at how I was an alternate and came in and told everyone what legs they should run. LOL. I think your training has been super consistent this year so go for the sub 4 with confidence. Keeping my fingers crossed for perfect weather for you!

    Cool place to be sponsored by. Sounds like they offer some good services. I hope the shin cooperates quickly!

    That is a pretty genius way to get in a long run! And hey, 3rd time's a charm for that sub-4!

    Great pictures! I am sending all my Sub-4 mojo to the east coast between now and 10/7.

    Welp, that's going to require therapy in 30 years. Great RR. Welcome back!

    Better late than never - 100 on 100 RR

    The Vermont 100 on 100 is my favorite race so you're probably wondering why it's taken 4+ weeks to post a RR. Me too, but no excuses, right. In case you're new around here, 100 on 100 is a 100 mile relay race on Route 100 in Vermont. This was the 4th year a Loop team has entered. This year was my 3rd time running this relay. It's such a fun day of running and spending time with friends I don't see often enough. Throw in the weekend trip to Vermont and it's a getaway, race and mini-Loopfest all rolled into one fun weekend. 100 on 100 fell on the same weekend when I had 18 miles on the calendar so OCrunnergirl wisely "volunteered" me for an 18 mile leg. Perfect! I must have hit the tangents because Garmin says it added up to only 17.8 miles, but who's counting. The weekend started shortly after lunch when I simply could not wait any longer to get the party started. I left the office to start the drive to Killington, VT where KRG had found a nice roomy condo to rent. I'm terrified by open spaces, which is how Vermont can be described, but soon enough Siri had guided me to the condo tucked into the side of Killington mountain. Soon all members of the team arrived and we made our way to a restaurant for dinner and drinks. The alarm went off way too early the next morning. We had about an hour drive to Stowe, Vermont where we would check in and start the race. Apple Pie expertly guided us to Stowe where we checked in and helped him get ready for the first leg. After that we drove onto Rt. 100 to decorate the van and cheer on our team members. Here is a pic of the van after some light rain washed away some of the paint. I don't have the pic after KRG and Jschneid fixed the damage, but here is the partially fixed van. Jschneid was the next runner. We made him cross the road and stop to get into a picture at Ben & Jerry's. He didn't seem to mind and didn't even pause his watch. Vermont has a lot of mountains and streams. The obligatory waterfall pic: For the rest of the day we alternated between running, eating, and cheering for the rest of the team. About 15 hours later we crossed the finish line where a buffet dinner and beer were waiting. Nice way to end the day. The medal was different this year. I like it. After eating and drinking we made our way back to the condo where Ben & Jerry's ice cream was waiting. A few of us stayed up late talking and catching up, but soon exhaustion was too much and everyone made their way to bed. We went out for a big breakfast the next morning and then left to make the drive back home to reality. These kinds of weekends go by way too fast. We're trying to put together 2 teams for next year. Think about it, but be warned: You will want to keep coming back. I'm in taper mode now. Marathon #5 is 10/7. Breaking 4:00 has been a barrier for me. Training was solid for a sub-4 on the last two attempts. One was slowed by the killer weather at Philly Loopphest 2 and last year was slowed by a back strain. I feel under trained speed-wise this time but am still shooting for that 3:59. Now the goal is out there so I'm accountable.

    Stroller x 5 miles in a race. BA for sure! Great job! Will BL be ready for 3 legs next August?

    Hmm. I've had a few projects occur to me, but haven't actually done any work. Guess I should get on that.

    Week 6: Diagnosis & Recovery Plan

    Very cool about the sponsorship!! I wish I had one of those guys in my back pocket who could massage away all my stupid scar tissue and tell me what training changes I need to make. Hoping he can figure out the correct changes to make to your plan to get you to the start of the marathon healthy.

    ELIUD!!!! I watched Breaking 2 and he is just such a fantastic athlete. Glad the knee is coming around to it's senses but what did you fix, paint or build this week?? Did I miss it? Is it in the invisible ink that only the young kids know how to get to show up??

    Seriously impressive to hold that pace for 5 miles with a stroller. I pushed the nephew in one for 2 miles once and thought I was going to die. Congrats on your racing comeback!!

    Congratulations on the sponsorship! Crossing my fingers and toes that the rest gets you back to marathon training with no pain!!

    The space-time continuum is certainly slower in regards to time while injured and time while recovering. The opposite being true for Code Abbys....

    The guy's pretty smart to sponsor you. It will show the facility's diversity in training people for lots of different awesome things.

    A spring marathon, in this case, is wise. Keeps the expectations of record speeds low.
