      I like your picture Stephen. I was thinking about this on my run this morning and saw some elderly folks struggling just to walk upright. I want people to tell me that I don't look a day over 70 when I'm 85!

      It's all about finding a race small enough. That's my secret. Did you know that I am the 7 time winner of the "Cure for Nora 5K"? Yep. Good race. All proceeds go to research about what causes Noras to occur (we think we've got that figured out now) and how Noras effect others-. turns out some people laugh themselves silly while others get hives...

      Winning is easy if you find the right race, posting a solid time takes much more effort. I'd rather have my @ss handed to me in a race but be pulled to a very fast time than win a race with a slow time...

    Finish a 5k or 10k with no one else in front of me. Now that would be fun.

  9. #dailymission My finish line fantasy is to see the clock read 3:35...or lower (if we're talking fantasy here!) I also wouldn't mind a decent photo:)

      Fantasy? Yeah, a decent marathon race photo would be nice! Even when I'm feeling strong and smiling my form looks like I'm tryng to pass a kidney stone!

      Make sure that Guinness is cold, Ray. Don't want to do all that work and be forced to drink warm ale. LOL.

  15. #dailymission My finish line fantasy is to cross the line just in time to get the Royal Order of the Crimson Cheetah buckle at Wasatch.

  16. #dailymission: What is your finish line fantasy...more about the race than the finish line :) Doing the Mount Dessert Island Marathon-because I love running and I love Mount Dessert Island. Next year!

  17. #dailymission Pretty much exactly what happened at my first half marathon -- except with fresher legs, and preferably they won't be out of finisher's medals either.

  18. #dailymission Way back before I ever ran at all, I had a dream that I won the Charleston (WV) Distance Run. Not first woman, not first in my age group, but broke the tape and crossed the line firs... read more
