1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Biking and the elliptical were my substitutes for running during my 4-week recovery from a foot injury. It worked out pretty well although I couldn't always get my heart rate up as fast or high as I can with running.

    3 miles earlier this afternoon. I wasn't really into it, so I stopped at 3.

    3.5 shakeout today with 5 strides at race pace (100 - 300 meters).
    Dealing with JetBlue at the moment to change my Boston reservations. Would not be a problem if their hold music wasn't awful, awful soft rock.

    6 this morning in what passes for a downpour here in SF. Hoping to avoid water damage, I tucked my iPhone in my pocket and ran without monitoring my pace. Ended up right on the fast end of my range for this distance.

    I love running in the rain.

    +1 for running in the rain...

    I did an 11.5 mile hilly trail run this afternoon. I figure about 2200 feet of climbing, and the sort of mud that you slide in. Good times. I almost bit it once, but caught myself with my other foot. It didn't start raining in the south bay until I was almost finished. It was sure windy out in the hills though!

    4Miles.

    My lunaglide's got holes today (dunno why. Aging?) and I had to throw them away.

    What are some running shoes for a dude with underpronation? Only recently (Since February) I have started thinking about running as a healthy habit, and taking it seriously.

    My friend tells me rule of thumb is that the uglier the shoes are, the better. Does this mean that I have to give up those fancy Free's and Lunar's?

    Ceoceo: I would go to your local running store and try on a bunch of different shoes before you buy.

    Carlsbad 5k in 21:40. I was hoping for a sub 21. Maybe next time.

    Carlsbad 5000 today in 16:46. A PR for me !!!!!!!!!!!!!! also on a windy day.

    Quevola - the wind really sucked during your race. Almost everyone I know who ran the masters div. missed their goals. It was still windy by the time I ran, but probably 40% less. I still need to total up the weeks miles. Not very many, but the pre boston taper madness starts today!

    5 miles followed by an hour or so of weights and core. An easy and enjoyable run and workout.

    Was down in FL for the weekend, got in 14.2 miles in 1:40:07 on Saturday and 13.77 in 1:38:38 on Sunday, total elevation CHANGE for the 2 days runs.....17 feet. Not exactly ideal for WS training, bu running in the heat felt good.
