  4. Happy Thanksgiving to all my DM friends! I'm thankful for each of you and for the ability to run.

  5. That moment when it's recommended that you skip today's run so you can run the Turkey Trot in the morning and you kinda freak out because you know you'll be down 8 miles from last we... read more

      Miles are miles and they are done - you didn't give in to the voices that told you to go sit on your sofa. Rock on and stay strong Patricia.

      Go with how you feel. Walking for a mile was probably a good idea.

    Training run 13.1 mi 02:36 11:54 pace

    A nice day for my longest training run before my half marathon in three weeks. The rain cleared up and it was in the upper 50s when I started. I ate some overnight oats, got dressed, drove to stash... read more

    Wonderful 6 mi 01:11 11:51 pace

    I have not had much of an appetite lately. I wasn't sure how this run was going to go because of lack of carbs or anything much at all. Buuuut...

    Monday Zapper 6.24 mi 01:11 11:22 pace

    Zapped the zero. Waited for the sun to warm things up a little bit. 41 degrees at the finish with some cold wind. My legs felt heavy but I pushed it out anyway.

    Weekend long run 12 mi 02:18 11:28 pace

    I didn't feel like doing this. It was cold and drizzly. Headed out anyway with some amazing virtual support. Thanks Brian H! This was mostly a fun run, except at mile 11 runkeeper paused for ... read more

  18. #dailymission Are you training to get faster? If so, how?

      Agreed! Then there's this: Caballo Blanco (from Christopher McDougall's 'Born To Run'): “The problem with most people is they only care about getting fast, and think that once they get fast, running will get easy. They got it backwards. First focus on getting easy, because if that's all you get, that ain't so bad. Once you can run easy, focus on light. Once you get light, focus on smooth. By the time you're easy, light and smooth, you won't have to worry about getting fast--you will be.”

    Is there any temperature that will keep you indoors for your workout?

    I don't like cold, but cold + wind will keep me in more than anything. Days like that I wish I had a tread... read more
