    Would you rather...

    Looks like and nice trip. Love the lighthouses. Sorry about the new issue. Hopefully the hamstring settles down and nothing else decides to join the "party"...
  2. So many races! Making up for lost time. And doing all the races where I've always gone "well maybe sometime..." Sometime is now.

    Jubilant June

    What an awesome month! Congrats on the race win and Rabbit Elite!
  4. Well a 25 minute 5k is a dream of mine. Very much within the realm of possibility, but still more than a minute faster than I've ever done. Go for it!
  5. I meant to write more often – I really did…Since I wrote in April I have run a couple in person races and some virtual races. I did an in person 10k that I also counted as a virtual 10k (because to me, virtual races barely count, and it isn’t as though I don’t cover that distance regularly anyway…) The in person 10k was the “Jim Schoemehl Run” to fundraise for ALS research. I also counted this for my virtual Flying Pig 10k, mainly because it was that weekend. I did the 3-way challenge, so as soon as I finished that race I did my 5k. The Sunday of that weekend I ran my half, and got it done bef

    Just like running.

    The bathroom re-do looks great. Matching paint colors is tricky. I've always heard you should buy all the paint at the same time (if possible) and mix some as you transition between cans so any color difference fades together.
  9. The state of Missouri has basically zero restrictions now, although where I am in the St. Louis area still does, but they have eased enough to allow races (with a much reduced capacity and with very spread out waves). So far it seems to be ok as far as infection levels go, but a lot of the state is very vaccine hesitant at best so it could get ugly again.
  10. So if Des hadn't been on a mission to break the women's 50k world record, you would be the fastest woman in North America (*for the 50k distance this year...) Wow. And you ran that course faster than anyone ever...(don't tell Des!) I managed to snag a Strava segment in my neighborhood. It was a slow segment. Only because not that many people use Strava around here I guess. I actually do regularly see other runners now, which is nice. Including one who greets me by name and I feel so guilty because I don't remember his... Congratulations on a great race!
  11. How has it been so long? I meant to do better…honestly although my running has been decent, most everything else has been a struggle. I talked to a career counselor and I have changed some things about how I’m doing my job search, but I still have had no interviews and I haven’t seen a job that just jumps out at me as what I really want – a couple that combine elements of research/human health/nutrition were the best, but nothing has worked out…between days of monotonous data entry and the job search my mental energy is pretty sapped when I’ve had the time to write. Excuses, Excuses…it’s been
  12. You broke a record held by Joan Benoit Samuelson! How cool! Congrats on a great race.
  13. I can't see the pictures, but that sounds like more work than I'd want to do... As far as the diabetes goes, you might have some genetics that made you more vulnerable. It stinks, but as with most things, sometimes you can really do everything right (or that would be fine in the "average" person) and diabetes/high cholesterol/whatever else still develops. Spending a little time monitoring your blood sugar in relation to meals etc. could be really helpful because you could see what affects it most and give you a better idea of what you can change before you start making long term changes.
  14. I gained a few pandemic pounds and some high cholesterol to go with it (and I just finished a master's degree in nutrition so it feels especially like that shouldn't have happened.) Since starting to work on tackling that I'm down a few pounds, but it's been slow. I did buy a new pair of pants because I had no blue jeans I could comfortably wear.
