    Waving from the sidelines - I'll write more but suffice to say I've been on vacation with Natasha and her husband and son in Canada. Wonderful time - even if there were deer fly and mosquitoes. We...

    Congratulations on checking off the marathon from your bucket list. Finished is always a good thing.

    I picked up a run today on the "cool day" of the week - only 86. It's been ugly every day...

    Alicia - a little nerves before any marathon (not just the 1st but every one - my coach gets a case of the nerves before every race and he's run ~150 of them). I hope, by this time, you are done and...

    It's been a while but I imagine your race is over Alicia. How did it go? Sorry I've been quiet for such a long time, thing have been pretty nutso around here - a funeral, powder post beetles in the...

    Bumping a little to see if folks are still playing out there. It's been a decent couple weeks since I checked in - plenty of runs, nothing horribly long but plenty of runs. I'm getting my number of...

    Somehow I missed the 10th update... maybe because I was out working on a retreat near the James River. I've actually had a good couple weeks getting runs and other exercise in.

    Your paint run...

    Hey Vicci - I know all about cold Easters. The last two years it's been 34 and 37 degrees. Imagine how cold a stoneware paten and chalice get while sitting on a marble altar. There were hand warmers...

    Spring? Is it spring yet? I hope it will be closer to 40-45 next Sunday for the Easter sunrise service. I don't think I can hack a 37 degree service again this year

    I'm glad that things are...

    Hey all - Good seeing you Alicia and Elizabeth.

    Elizabeth - I hope the celebration for your FIL wasn't too hectic. I can't imagine doing a gathering for 60 - I admire you for taking that on and...

    Hey there - first and foremost I reported the post above me.

    It's been a wild week here. We've packed in another 6-8" of snow this week - almost unheard of in Southside Virginia. We've had snow on...
  12. Hey gang - sorry I've been quiet these days. I've...

    Hey gang - sorry I've been quiet these days. I've been a little off my game and a combination of really cold weather and lots of wind. I've picked up 2-3 runs in the past few weeks. I'm searching for...

    I'll be back to catch up but the last week has been hectic to say the least. I only ran a 10 mile race on the 24th in the pouring rain. Then, last Monday on the 26th our elder statesman passed away...
  14. Check check...

    Hey gang. Back-to-back hope everyone is doing okay. Bumping up to get to the one week portion of the list. I've had a couple good days and good runs this past week. Did 10+/11- this morning as part...

    Hey there ladies. It's now into the second week of 2015 and I'm just getting to the thread. Thanks for starting out 2015. It sounds like there are some good goals ahead - 2015 miles in a year is a...
  16. Good seeing you and I'm glad you've been well. I...

    Good seeing you and I'm glad you've been well. I know you'll make 10,000 steps on the next two days. That will be great to achieve that goal. I think we'll have to start a new thread on 1/1/2015 to...

    Alicia - my long runs (in my book more than 9 or 10 miles) are a run/walk interval. In the summer around here I may do run/walk intervals for shorter runs. Part of the rationale (having used this...
  18. Alicia - sorry that I haven't responded earlier I...

    Alicia - sorry that I haven't responded earlier I haven't been able to get on the board. When I do marathons I'll normally run 2 or 3 minutes and walk for 1. That has let me finish in ~4:30 over the...
  19. Thanks for asking. This was the best race since...

    Thanks for asking. This was the best race since Richmond 2003. I was almost 4 minutes faster than last year with a time of 4:16:15. I had a blast and actually ran more than I expected. The...

    Sorry to be so quiet. It's been a funky week - roofers at work all week fixing my leaky roof, out of the office for most of 2 days and I still have to get all my work done. It sounds like you're...

    Kind of quiet around here these days... I hope everyone is okay. It's been a good week or so - nice to have a reasonable week of training - even though it's less than 3 weeks from the marathon...

    Alicia - sorry the weather has gotten the best of you recently Hopefully you can get some of the nice stuff we've been having, it's been great down here - cool in the morning and nice in the...

    Tentative congratulations Vicci! Let's hope that your house sells on the first offer - that would be great. Glad to hear that your pf is feeling better and the compression socks are working wonders....

    Hey all - I hope your hamstrings started behaving themselves Alicia. How do you like your headlamp? I'm not a huge fashion of mine - it makes my head hurt. When I was running the relay I decided to...

    I'm running in the Richmond Virginia Marathon.

    Regarding your pf and inserts question, I don't wear inserts because I have really high arches. I would recommend seeing a podiatrist who specializes...

    Alicia - You aren't kidding - where has the time gone? Congratulations on 32 years, every one of them is a big deal. I keep thinking - some days it seems like it was just yesterday when we got...

    Hey folks! Waving madly from down here.

    It sounds like you're keeping busy with your son's cross country meets. It's too bad that the bus budget is already blown but that makes a nice excuse to...
  28. Hey Vicci, good ride on your bike with your...

    Hey Vicci, good ride on your bike with your hubby. I've always found riding my bike is cooler than any other summer activity. Makes sense because you're moving faster on your bike than you ever could...

    Good hearing from you Alicia, it was relatively nice although humid for my run. The weather was decent although muggy. Not like today - we had a flash flood today and ended up with about 9" of water...

    Welcome Whitney - I hope you get some relief from your compression sleeve and that you continue to join the conversations.

    Alicia - I'd run the race again but I probably wouldn't run it next year....
