Last year at this time we were freezing cold and up to our ass in snow! Remember this from March 9, 2008??? It was just crazy cold and snowy and just so hard to stay motivated for marathon training. What a difference a year makes. Today was GORGEOUS OUT for our 26K run! Everyone did really well and stuck really close to the 8 minute pace, good for you, you guys ROCK!! This is the longest distance some of the group have ever run, so I am just so excited for them!!!
Not too much else is going on and I'm soooo far behind in blogging
I didn't get a chance to post about the Sport-Wash that Tom from the Runners' Lounge was kind enough to ask me to critique...but so many of you already have that by now if I did mention something I would just be parroting what you've already posted. I'm SO sorry Tom!
Will you ever forgive me?
Plus, I didn't get a chance to compile my running story for the book that Tom and Amy are putting together. So, I will be absent from the book, but I'm looking forward to reading all about the rest of you!!
Again, Tom, I'm soooo sorry. xoxoxox
On another note, cycling has been going really well and thanks everyone for bringing me up to speed about clipless and shoes. I found a really nice pair of Shimano RT 80 shoes.
Recessed cleat design with slim-line walkable outsole
- Non-slip smooth rubber sole for off-the-bike activities
Micro-adjust buckle and straps allow for subtle adjustment
Large nylon mesh upper provides high breathability ,
and yes, Blue I can walk around in them, but they are not for mountain bikes. I'm going to have to save up for them....they are tres expensive!!! But hey, at my age, you'll be able to bury me in them...and YES Judi, I'm loving the bike!!! It is what I'll be doing for all of the summer and during the early fall this year getting ready for my Half Ironman.
Oh and folks, speaking of Judi, she is collecting donations for Northcoast Doberman Rescue....please help her with this worthy cause!
That's it for today, I was just so happy to out in the warmth and sunshine, especially at this time of year here!!
Life is fun if you don't weaken,
