    So rare that I get to run with people! So, thought I'd post a pic of our group. Tucson Runner's Project. (I'm dead center, in orange singlet and white cap)

      I just saw that too. Amazing... although I ran NYC marathon 20 years ago, and the qualifying times now are even tougher than Boston's... (I "qualified" only by having run several NYRR club races)

      How sad to work hard to qualify, then have that euphoric feeling that you made it, only to be shut out by faster runners. So sad.

      NYC actually relaxed their qual times a bit. It's a good thing, otherwise I wouldn't be running it in 4-1/2 weeks. :)

    good MLR 13 mi 01:50 08:27 pace

    Took me quite a while to warm up- about 6 miles, but after that, I felt OK. Tossed in some marathon paced miles towards the end - as I was running late. If I can keep this up- I'll be ready fo... read more

    great Frisky 8.6 mi 01:10 08:11 pace

    About once a month I actually feel almost good on a run. Today was that day. Sure- it took me 2-3 miles to warm up, but that's just being over 50. Did a decent hill climb up Reddington, the... read more

      Damn Morey - that's an impressive run for not feeling well and running in such warm temps! Glad it was such a pretty run at least to make it a little more enjoyable!

      Have fun tomorrow! Some people are just clueless. Here, many walkers walk / runners run on the same side as traffic instead of being against it. So crazy dangerous!

      That's crazy horse. Well not THE crazy horse but you get the idea. I can imagine not having something reflective and I started using knuckle lights years ago so that things like bikes (or horses I suppose) would see me in case they didn't have headlights themselves. Stay safe Morey. Good luck on your run tomorrow.
