    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.

    6.5 this morning. Finally back to some decent pace and the last half-mile at 7:30. Which is blazing fast for me.

    Just realized that today's run took me past my total distance for all of last year.

    Progress.

    11 miles for me. Slow but a nice day and an enjoyable run despite tired legs at the end

    Great pics Rob, thanks for sharing those. There was a bit of a break in the humidity today, did you notice? Ran 4.5 miles today, sans iPod, which was surprisingly nice.

    Hey All,
    Just got back from a week in the north of Chile.
    3 days of running at 0 altitude at the beach (with one 15 mile run ft. 4 mile tempo between miles 8 and 12 (5:48 avg pace)
    3 days at 8000 ft. running slow 10 miles every day. It was awesome to run through Incan ruins each day.
    Training has been solid, but I have been damn busy and intend to post more consistently.
    Will read over the past few pages now to see how everyone is.
    A few images of running/vacation . . .
    Ran into friends running in the ruins: [​IMG] explaining that it is hard to run at 8000 feet (wearing all Boston Marathon gear . . . [​IMG] after getting out of hot springs at 530am in freezing northern chile: [​IMG] geysers (same source as the hot springs): [​IMG]
