    2nd Annual Rick Austin Memorial 5K

    "Always better to blow up during a 5K, not before." I literally chuckled out loud when I read that. Well done (on making me LOL and on the race)

    The Cross-Training Chronicles: October Recap

    UGH, I hear you on the 'another birthday' thing! I am feeling the same way every birthday, but for a different reason. I do think you have a sub 2:45 in you, though. Just remember, Shalane had her major setback and came back to win New York! Maybe this forced break is setting you up for your own 'win'.

    The Bangle Chronicles - Episode 16 - The Last Jedi

    Multiple flying Bangle pics? I'd call that a success. Glad you had a mostly? enjoyable race.

    This is so exciting.

    New MF Goals

    You are more than welcome to come to KC any time for a race! Believe it or not, we've got some great trail races and pretty technical trails here that are run by an incredibly welcoming and chill group. Their event schedule is here. The races at Branded B Ranch in Lake Perry and at Clinton Lake in Lawrence are probably going to give you the training you are looking for. I believe the Free State Trail run has gotten lots of kudos nationally. And, of course, you have a free place to crash (and someone who'd be willing to tackle one of the shorter distances). Can't wait to read along as you pursue this goal!

    Friday Review

    I'm glad you still did your strength training. Thought I was going to have to scold you for a moment. Sending positive vibes for T-Rex.

    Ready or not, here I come

    Here's to enjoying the race and lots of high fives. Good luck!

    OK, here's one theory.

    Because it was so hot this summer, I spent most of it weight training in the AC. Three months later, I've noticed my easy effort runs are an average of 30 seconds faster. Just telling you so you keep up with the weight training. It helps in more ways than one.
  9. Someone once described your calf muscles holding your body up as being the same thing as holding a flag pole at the very bottom - it's a lot of work to keep it upright! Take care of those calves and that hip and enjoy the run.

    The Second Annual Inaugural Irma Gerd 8 Mile Classic

    Surely you've tried going up half a size or the elastic quick laces?? Your shoe saga is going to bother me all day. The eyelash thing sounds like something I would say to my friends as a joke, but in a voice that would make anyone eavesdropping think I'm serious. So maybe the joke's on YOU! hahahahahaha I have never heard of running to cool down after lifting. Seems odd. I also have never heard of a trainer actually being discouraging IRL, either. So basically I've decided that trainer sucks and should be fired. I'm sure The Wife is also training for something … tell her I hope it's going well.

    Distance first, then speed.

    It's a Race Report!

    Ugh, races like that are so disappointing. Sorry training hasn't gone as planned, but I like those goals!

    Switching gears: The glass is HALF full…

    A totally do-able goal that is a great compliment to the big, big goal in seven months. Double high-five.

    Indy Women’s Half: You don’t know, until you know

    Any of us would have made the same decision, especially if a coach is telling us to go for it. Also, I'm sure you've been told this, but DNS-ing or DNF-ing would have disappointed absolutely no one. I'm so glad things are on the upswing now!

    Irma Gerd Redux

    I'm sad to hear Stretchy left you, too. This was a great bloop, first AND second time around. PS - missing the 2nd Annual RR, sir ...
