    "And Then There Were None" was the first Agatha Christie I've read, but I agree it was timeless! And, I guess the year isn't over yet (for either of us)...
  6. Hoping you feel better soon, now that you are back in Michigan with the fall weather.

    That's one more race than me this year! lol Albani is really growing up. Agatha Christie is amazing and her stories are timeless. I read Death on the Nile last month.

    They do, but the most frustrating part of my current issue is that it's not even an injury; it's irritation based on the shape of my hip bones - the same hip bones I've run with for most of my life without even knowing I had an impingement. Also I have the malformation in both sides but pain only in the left. Why it popped up is anyone's guess, and while it's nice having physicians tell you that you did nothing to cause it, it also makes it much more difficult to treat, but I am trying. Sigh. Thanks for the well wishes!

    Injuries stink! I Hope you and Christian heal well and recover fast. Wishing you well as a new masters runner.

    October 2020 in review! Total mileage for the month: 220.2 Sep. 28-Oct. 4: 67.8 Oct. 5-11: 81.1 Oct. 12-18: 69.1 Oct. 19-25: 21.8 Oct. 26-Nov. 1: 1 (it was a pain-free mile - I'm just being super cautious and waiting until Monday, Nov. 2 to truly try to start back because I cannot need 4 months off again) Yes, I look odd and don't care! Races: I'm pretty sure 2020 is going to remain the year that I ran only one actual race (the bronchit
  11. Lots of stuff going on. Hopefully the running comes back around soon. (Probably just in time for it to be super cold). Did you talk to a doctor post-COVID? Some people are ending up with heart/lung problems, even though they seem generally fine. Of course right now it's probably going to be really difficult to get appointments for anything.
  12. Solid effort. You can be proud of this one.
  13. This past Sunday, Oct 25th I ran the Blarney Stone & Screaming Banshee Mashup Half Marathon which was a reschedule of the Blarney Stone Half Marathon that was cancelled in the Spring and combining it with the Screaming Banshee Half Marathon scheduled for Oct 25th. 3 friends and I from our running group had originally signed up for the spring Blarney Stone Half. The race had 3 start windows; 9-9:40am, 9:40-10:20am for the Half Marathon/10K/5K and an additional start window of 10:20-11am for the 10K and 5K. We had go online and enter our name on one of the start window tabs

    Not the weekend I had planned.

    I want to say it's covid leftovers, but August wasn't going too bad until the knee took me out.

    Not the weekend I had planned.

    I'm in the same boat re running. It seems like all runs feel harder and are slower than they should be. Knocks the joy out of it.
  16. How time flies when you're having fun. Or not. Can't blame my current state on a lack of motivation. Even without a race to train for, there's nothing I like more than taking long, hard runs in perfect fall weather. And there's been some beautiful fall weather around here lately. I'm what would be considered "recovered" from my bout with Covid-19 late last spring. Mild symptoms, relatively speaking. Headaches, fatigue and shortness of breath. Six weeks from start to finish, more or less. That's when I started trying to run again, anyway. I did a couple of test runs in May but th
  17. Congratulations - on the baby, the move and making it up that hill! Sounds like you're making great progress!

    A Year in Review

    Congratulations on child #2. I think that we all need to challenge ourselves and focus on learning and improving and not on where we were (maybe a little easier for me to say since I am older and getting slower). To just keep moving forward and it sounds like that's exactly what you're doing. Kudo's.

    A Year in Review

    Lately it seems that I go through the "come back from layoff" more than any period of maintenance or race build up. And it's harder and harder. Overall, it looks like your 2020 has been better than many. That's a serious hill, no mistake. Thanks for checking in.

    A Year in Review

    A whole year in review. Most people would say that Covid was the most impactful thing of their 2020, but really that didn’t affect me too much. I was pregnant again! Yay! So, working from home (was already doing that with my toddler), not racing, and avoiding people really wasn’t a big deal. Pregnancy – not as easy as the first time. Birth – much, MUCH, easier than the first time. Now recovery – so far, so good, but its slow, which is difficult. I waited the recommended 6-weeks to start running…nope, not really, I went for a couple short (like a quarter mile) jogs at 4 weeks, but I was

    Knee update

    Coming along. My routine the last couple of weeks has been 4 miles on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, then 6 on Saturday. Nothing to brag about, but at least it's running. As for the knee, Ralph continues to improve, slowly. I notice him about half the time, but the pain level is mostly 1-3 on a 10 scale. I'd like to be going further and faster of course, but I don't want to wreck anything, so I'll stay with the current state for now. I only occasionally see other runners, although last Saturday there was a group of 4 (appropriately distanced, but definitely together) on my way pa
  23. I think it's called cross training because it makes me cross. I injured my knee playing basketball a couple of years ago and I decided I wouldn't play anymore because I didn't want to take time off from running again. About 3 weeks ago, I played basketball again and was surprised and happy to find out I could still cut and move without any sign of injury or weakness.
  24. I asked her multiple times if she would instead go backwards and turn 11, but she kept saying no.
  25. My library had books 1-11 of that series and then I read the final 2 as ebooks. I also hope your knee starts behaving!
  26. Congratulations on your anniversary, and becoming a member of a parent of a teenager club 🙂.
