Nice looking shoes Steve.

I missed my Thursday run because of a need for sleep so I ran Friday instead. 5 miles right on target with the pace I wanted. My local running group and I have been stalking weather.com all week as we have been watching the cold weather and snow come our way. We had been planning to do our long run tomorrow, which then turned into half the group just planning to hit the treadmill in the morning. No way can I do 10 miles on the treadmill. I did 14 once and broke my will of running on the treadmill, lol. It was 1:30 and weather.com said the snow was starting at 4, so I jumped into my running clothes and went for it. I pulled off another 2:16 10 miler. This time however, since I was by myself, I had control over the pace and was able to keep it even the entire run instead of starting out slower and needing to push it to get the pace I wanted. And it felt awesome. Way better than last week.

Hope everyone's week has started well and that everyone is having a nice Valentine's Day.

I started the morning off with a 5 mile run. Then later in the da I registered for the Tower of Terror 10 Miler. My DF and I are treating this as our bachelor/bachelorette race. Should be fun!

Katie Great Job on two 2:16 10 milers

Steve Nice new shoes. My new Mizunos arrived today, but they are not as colorful as your Sauconys. No need to take pictures.

Cheri 3miles 3x week is enough to keep your heart from exploding, no reason to feel bad about it.

Manda Good idea about staying up for the start of the half , it would kind of be like Wine and Dine only later.

Gretchen Congratulations on getting back out after a day.

AFM Back to our earlier conversation on how long shoes last, my knees started hurting last week, 340 miles on the shoes. You would think that I would learn to buy shoes at about 300 miles. Sorry I was gone so long. Work has been busy, and then we went to see our son in South Carolina last week. At least it was nice, we got a run in outside along a river path. Very Nice.

Leave for Princess in and a wakeup until we leave for Princess.

Mike

Mike: Thanks! So glad the weather was nice for you in SC. It has been a little iffy the past couple weeks with temps on the east coast. Brrr...

This will probably be my last post before leaving for Disney Thursday. Did 4 miles at race pace today.

Also booked my room for Marathon Weekend next year.

Have a great time, Katie and Mike. I will be sending all my best wishes down to the Princess race (wish I was there).
Katie - good luck with the wedding dress shopping....that is so exciting!
I have been out of commission for the past week or more since I came down with a bad sore throat and head cold. Hope this week is better. Just feeling down and out of it.

Katie and Mike: Have a fun and safe trip to Florida. I wont lie, I'm pretty jealous.

Gretchen: I just came off of a "recovery week" for elbow issues. Its tough taking the time off, but its important.

My elbow is fully recovered and I am back in the full swing of workouts. I might try to work in an extra day of running since the Canton half is in four months, but that may be taking on a little too much.

Hey all. Sorry I have been MIA. I have had a change in Internet situation and it has been harder to get on.

Hope everyone had a good February.

How was the Princess?

I was able to make my 50 miles for Feb, but it was close. I took too much time off after my half at the beginning of the month. Hope to be more consistant this month.

Hopefully I will find more time to get on later this week.

Thanks so much for the good wishes everyone. Princess was a lot of fun this year, as usual. I an it with my friend Megan and her sister. We had a blast. The miles just melted away. I did end up coming home with a bad case of hay fever. Didn't run at all the week after the race then did another half the following weekend. I felt like we were taking it easy but during that half I cut 11 minutes off our Princess time. Now I am trying to get back into the swing of things with my weekday runs. I have another week then I have the Shamrock half. Did I mention I stacked my March/April/May race schedules since I am moving in June? It is going to be a little chaotic for the next few months I think, lol.

Whats up everyone,
Just checking in. I finally got to do some running outside and it is so much better than the treadmill. Workouts have been going well. My first race isn't until June but I still feel like its coming up fast. Thats it for now.
