Congrats on the finish and accomplishment. Tough race. Enjoy a good recovery period now, you earned it. .
How many miles did you run today? - Page 654
I cam in at a few seconds over 2 hours and 1 minute. Had I slowed down a bit for the first few miles, I would have probably been able to get closer to 1:55. Oh well, I still had a blast I now I know what to expect next time I am out there.
Congrats MP. Welcome to trail running. I really enjoy it and find the time flies by. I'll bet you ran a small portion of the Dances w/ Dirt- Hell Edition course. They do a 50K / 50M in Sept that would be a blast to run. They have good events.
Congrats as well to Borderline on completing your 1st marathon and on a very famous one. I think this is the one the guy plays the baby grand piano on the course right?
Good stuff all around happening this weekend for runners on SF.
4.5 for me on Friday, and this morning I ran with my 9 y.o. son in his first 5k race. He really knocked it out! His splits were 8:40, 8:24, 7:52 and he had gas for a sprint to the finish and beat me by a step. Definitely one of the highlights of my life as a parent.
If there were more good trails, especially of the singletrack variety, in SE Michigan, I'd be all for running on them. Next year, I'm hoping to go out west for a full marathon on one somewhere and tie it in with a vacation.
Thanks man. Yes, that is the one. It runs along Highway 1 from Big Sur to Carmel. Fantastic scenery.
I ran 5 miles this morning on a treadmill watching Squakbox which made it fly by since, they were doing a great series on top 100 business people who have made an "impact" on our lives. They also had Howard Schultz of Starbucks on, which was fascinating and made me want a coffee.
5 miles at lunch running with a couple people in the office. I set the pace with my garmin and we completed the run at roughly an 8:15/mi pace. They said that pace was fine but I could tell they struggled through it. My normal everyday pace is usually a 7:30/mi without much effort so it felt slow but nice to run with others. Doubt I will be asked to run with them again...
