1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Did the Innsbruck Alpine K15 yesterday. Ended up 44th Male with a time of 1:36:10,3. Overdid it a bit at the beginning.

    ~8,75 km in 44:39. Bought a pair of Hoka One Ones yesterday, felt good on asphalt.

    Did my first race in more than two years today. Only a 5k, but it's one psychological barrier to returning to form down. As it happened, conditions were not ideal. We only got back home from Tokyo on Friday because of cancelled flights so I still wasn't feeling 100%. It was nice and warm yesterday, but then today it was cold, windy and raining, so bad in fact that the inflatable start gate got blown over as we were waiting to go. The course was also far from flat. So all in all, I was happy with my 20:27, even though I had been aiming to get under 20:00 (and it's almost 2 minutes slower than I was running three years ago). As a bonus I was 3rd in my age category (40-49) (22nd overall, out of 200+) - so I guess everyone was suffering a bit.

    I now have a race schedule for the rest of the year too. The more important thing is gradual weight loss and carefully paced training, but the races will help to check my progress. So, in May I have an 8k, then unfortunately I am away at the end of May / early June and will miss my favourite local 8k race, in July another 5k, in August a 10k, in September a Half and an XC 5k, maybe another Half in October, and then a final 10k in November.
