    running is SO soy. I bet you wear a full on neon one piece when you run....
    Our world is full of surrender at the first sign of adversity, do not give up when the challenge meets you, meet the challenge. Through perseverance comes the rewards, the rewards that make life so enjoyable.

    Seize the day, trusting little in the future.

    if you want something, go after it. if you want to screw someone over, look DEEP in your heart and realize Karma is a bitch

    BLASPHEMY.

    Much like skiing, I wear what I have... that's comfortable... not about fashion... (most often in downright ugly shoes)... about getting it done...

    and fast doesn't hurt! (ok, yes it does.)

    I wanted to run that last year but for some reason I did not. Anyway I will end up running it this year. I hear it's a fast flat course. It's a bit short for me at that time of year and I'm sure I will get smoked.
    People should learn endurance; they should learn to endure the discomforts of heat and cold, hunger and thirst; they should learn to be patient when receiving abuse and scorn; for it is the practice of endurance that quenches the fire of worldly passions which is burning up their bodies.

    Love to run, but distances are out for me for a while. Knee issues & also sprint training, so.....

    Ran a half last summer in Alaska, the Anchorage Mayor's Marathon & 1/2...loved it!

    But anyhow, I'm in Utah, so kinda hard to train with you. Good luck!

    Team Hoyt is also going to have a booth at the expo, doing a meet and greet, try and get there if you can. I am not sure if they will be racing, it's not clear from their calendar?

    I've got the Philadelphia Marathon in November if anyone would like to join me..
    - and, I'm planning to volunteer at the Vermont 100-mile endurance run in July. runners who finish take between 15 and 30 hours to complete it. that should be a helluva experience.

    I'll probably run half-a-dozen 5ks to half-marathons over the summer..

    Running, PaaaChaw!!!

    After I bought my bike, I gave it up, unless someone is chasing me. But then again, I'm old and I've fried my knees skiing wedges...
    This is the worst pain EVER!

    First things first. Get into pacing shape (two months left), do a 50K in the late summer or fall, then focus on Catalina.

    Steve, where abouts along the course will you be volunteering? Early on is nice because all the runners are through in 2 or 3 hours. But working later in the race, say mile 80, means you could be there from 5:00 until after sunrise the next morning.

    haven't decided yet.. I don't mind putting in long hours though - especially since the late stages would be much more interesting than early.

    only a couple -- 5K, 10K, & a half marathon in 2002 after ACL surgery the year before. Didn't think I ever needed to do it again...

    but now I do.

    Indeed- that's how I got into ultras. As a young, fairly new to running punk, I worked the 85 mile aid station at Western States back in 88. It was a kool experience that eventually led to racing with the goal of running ultras.

    If you're in shape to run/jog/walk 20 miles, work an early aid station and then volunteer to pace someone. Vermont's a big race and there will be folks from afar who don't have a pacer, but could definitely use one.

    Forget the hot tub!

    What you need, mon cher, is a talented man who understands the physical insult caused by running and who knows to confidently and sensuously massage a girl's legs just right to relieve the discomfort you're currently feeling and make you purrrrrrrrrr.


    Mmmmmm...purrrrr for me...

    I¨m a 9 to 12 miles a week kind of guy right now. I¨d like to bump it up to around 20 a week (5 mi 4 times a week) and maybe throw in a longer run around 10 miles once a week. I´m not interested in racing, just for general fitness. I spent alot of time in the gym this winter and put on 10 pounds and it seems like running has been much more difficult for me.

    I took a solid 2.5 month break after tweaking my ankle and then breaking my thumb three weeks later. Things are much slower and more painful than normal at the moment. I struggled to make 7 miles yesterday on a trail where I usually do 8-9 without flinching. My lungs are OK but my legs are just weak, no power. It's time to hit the plyos hard.

    7 miles after a 2.5 month break...

    I'm feeling like a hack. But I'll get there...
