NYR, pics look good. Been to those parts many more times than a few, and it never looked that good to me. Makes me think about Richmond in a different way. I've been missing out.

7 @ 7:02/mile. Just bought a garmin, and I could get used to it.

Might have to jump in on this picture thing and bring a camera running sometime.

anyone else here find that the more they run the more they do it "for the sport"? I used to be big into tracking my time/pace, had a Nike sportband for a couple of years but nowadays I find much more enjoyment out of just going out there with my shuffle and run at a good pace for me.

Did a few races (2 halfs and a 10K) and they were cool but honestly the best part of running is doing it without having to worry about numbers like it's a J.O.B. Most times I run I see a few dudes wearing those heart-rate monitors and the straps around the chest, doing fast/slow intervals and it seems pretty tedious (I get the same feeling whenever I peruse through Runner's World). Then again I'm not a super-hardcore runner. 3x8mi per week is good enough for me, that way I still have time for other sports; so maybe I'm just exposed to the more competitive amateurs in my area, especially since I run on a pretty nice urban trail.

I did 8.5 miles this morning mostly through neighborhoods I had never run through. It was a nice change of scenery.

My tracking functions as a commitment device, and I also like to see my progress. My buddy who's been running for much longer than I have has recently stopped wearing anything other than a watch and he's quite happy. He's more obsessive than I am, though, so I think he enjoys it more if he can't drill down on the details of his running.

yea it might just be a phase. I used to be pretty obsessive about tracking my runs and pace, now I'm the complete opposite. Maybe at some point I'll go back into tracking stuff, although I kinda doubt it.

Pics look great NYR. I did a five miler yesterday evening and noticed a digital thermometer reading 101 degrees. I don't mind the heat and humidity so much and find it is a matter of what one gets used to.

4 miles in the heat here - suspect its a little cooler than SC though!
post #6868 of 10391
