    I almost always have hip and back soreness after a long run. I tend to get my hips really tight, which pulls everything out of alignment, especially in my lower back.

    Good luck in Chicago!

    Therapist told me my left leg is half an inch longer than right.
    I'm that much off alignment right now.
    This running thing is making me crippled.

    Because of center of gravity, women tend to have more hip issues than men.
    At least that what I was told.

    Thank you, Jenny!
    For now, I just wanna come in 5 hours.

    New mattress also totally helped my back and sciatica pain from running, riding, etc.

    I was a fucking gazelle yesterday after Kundalini in the morning, what took me so long to figure that out??

    Hamptons marathon this weekend- should be flat but HOT, which is a concern for my pasty Irish arse. Feel like I have not trained that hard but have a 20 and two 18s under my belt, all of the training super hilly compared with the course

    Did that many times. Ultrarunners are big beer drinkers. I've seen more beer downed in post-ultra parties than in Lot 4. No, I'm not kidding.
    That I don't doubt. Nothing like post race re-hydration. I'll Half in a few weeks, unfortunately the beer sponsor is Michelob Light. We get a couple of free beers post run, but I can't drink that swill. Fortunately there are some good brew pubs and micro-breweries near the venue

    Old Larry, good luck on your half. The last Long Beach half I did was sweltering, and I nearly had heat stroke by the end...not fun, so be careful.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Running, Anyone...?

    So last time I was going into marathon training, I was already in a shape to run half marathon (02:10:00) and enjoyed every bit of 20 week program.
    This time, I had 1.5 year off because of my left foot injury and build up from 0 mile.
    Running is still hard even when it's only 3 miles.
    Broke my toe on top of that and focus is not there.
    Somehow I clocked in all the mileage I was required (I think it was 300... ) in 16 weeks.
    Most people get their PR at Chicago because the course is a lot easier than NYC.
    For me, I'm just hoping to finish within 5 hours.
    What a shame.
    I'll do better next time.

    You are going to kill it! You have been training despite chronic pain from your toe/foot and the euphoria of the race day will carry you through and then you will be done needing to run for a bit and can take a break/do other activities and heal up

    we should choose a marathon or trail running event and all meet up for one
    had a great time doing the JH Half with the MBillie's
    I also like eating and drinking good stuff before and after

    Thank you, b-bear.
    You are so kind.

    I would love to meet and run a race together.
    You guys might have to wait on me to finish, but I will finish one or the other.

    This was me at mile 23 "When is this going to end???!!!" face.

    Are the Hash House Harriers still around? There was a guy on our crew that was big in to HHH. Talk about running and lots of beer.

    The guy who orgnaized the Harriman 25/50k trail run in Island Park last month had lots of ice cold beer at the end. It was lovely. Apparently he always makes sure there is plenty of beer at all his races.

    And nutmegchoi, everyone is usually waiting for me. I'm the slowest of the slow! You'll do great in Chicago.

    Ran this a.m. The turn is rapidly approaching. Anyone got a recco for a running headlamp.

    Ive never used one for running, but after almost faceplanting in the dark, I think it might be time.
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    No thanks. I'll stick with porn. - Benny

    Those $1 ones from Walmart are light, cheap, and bright. I love a fancy flashlight as much as the next guy but it's hard to knock the el cheapo wallyworld special! I buy them by the handful on the rare occasion that I'm there.

    I run with a minimag flashlight. Makes a great weapon, too, I guess. Never needed it for that purpose.

    I use a Light & Motion Urban 900 bike headlight. Handlebar loop is perfect to use it handheld. Super bright and USB rechargeable.

    Black Diamond Sprinter is pretty darn good. I had an older version that I lost and miss. It looked sort of clunky, but was less noticeable than a typical headlamp while running.

    Ran my first ultra (50k) this past Sunday. It was hot. Too hot. Felt really good for the first 15 or so miles, but my legs were just cooked by mile 17 and I was relegated to walking the flats. I think the hike/run ratio during my training was a bit too skewed to the hiking side of things, but all of that vertical training paid off because I was still able to keep a good pace on the climbs even when I didn't feel like I could run. Finished in a little over 7 hours, so I can't be too upset with that considering the conditions.

    I went into the race thinking that if it went reasonably well I'd sign up for the North Face 50 miler in November, but now I'm not so sure. I never bonked and when I finally got my legs back around the last half mile I was able to carry a 7:45/mile pace to the finish line, but I just don't know if 2 months is enough time to prep for 20 more miles.

    Reminds me of me, except I'm a dude, at mile 23 in Portland a couple years back. Good for you on Chicago...hopefully it goes well...good luck.
