    Ugh tendonitis would suck, especially when you were doing so well!! I need to start training again, I'm doing a marathon in December but not really making it a competitive one. I qualified for Boston this year, so I'll train good for that one. The training is fun, but does get old. I usually start 12 weeks out, so I'm a tad behind.


    Thanks for the skirt compliment. I am in love with them!! :) Plus they make wedgies a little more discreet!

      How's everyone's running going?  I'm 2 weeks out from my marathon in Chicago (yaaaaay!)....which means that The Future Mrs. Thompson is 2 weeks away from being a bride.

        I'm loving the running skirt too, btw.  I was dead set again buying one, but once I tried one I really liked it.  Plus, they are better at hiding the running brief wedgie;)

          Hey ladies, I have my 1/2 on Sunday.  In hindsight, training would have been a good idea.  Oh well, I am still looking forward to it.

              YAY! Good luck! You'll do great! I'm so jealous of everyone's races coming up!

               

              I just started training for the Vegas marathon 2 weeks ago. I did a 14 miler and 16 miler. 18 and 20 before I leave for the wedding. Then who knows how it will go when we get back......

                Hey ladies, I had an amazing time at my half marathon yesterday.  I didn't even begin to feel tired until 15 kms in, not until 500 m from the finish did I really start to hurt.  My goal was 2:15 and I did it in 2:14:42.  I always forget how amazing it feels to do one of these.  I can't wait for my next race.  There is a 30 km race they do around here in March, I think I will sign up for that.  Sort of my test to see if I can get to a full.  Good luck to everyone who has a race coming up.

                  Congrats!!  Now you have the bug;)  YES, you can totally do a full if you've done a half.  I ran Chicago last weekend and LOVED it, except that it was 86 degrees F when we finished!  Plus, I'd had a fever for 72 hours prior to the race, so I felt a bit deflated.  I did run my fastest time yet though, but was not satisfied with my time....thus I'm already planning my next marathon.

                    Hey ladies, I did a 10 k on Saturday.  It was the zoo run which is a run through the local zoo.  I love that race but it was super hilly so it was a bit of a pain on my knees.  Then yesterday, I did a half marathon.  I beat my time in the one I did 3 weeks ago.  Only by a few minutes but not bad considering I did the 10 k the day before. 

                     

                    Greysgirl, congrats on your marathon!!!!!!! That's awesome!
