Chas' Info

An established master's runner in my late 40s and early fifties, I found myself challenged with severe pain in both legs several years ago. So I cut down on my mileage and quit racing. My last race was a 5K the Hendersonville Classic in 2011. Two years went by with numerous doctors visits. They all started saying the same thing. Your cartilage around your hip joints are minimal. One hip replacement (hip re-surfacing in July 2013) later, and I'm ready to push myself again. Long-distance ...
An established master's runner in my late 40s and early fifties, I found myself challenged with severe pain in both legs several years ago. So I cut down on my mileage and quit racing. My last race was a 5K the Hendersonville Classic in 2011. Two years went by with numerous doctors visits. They all started saying the same thing. Your cartilage around your hip joints are minimal. One hip replacement (hip re-surfacing in July 2013) later, and I'm ready to push myself again. Long-distance running is part of who I am but I'll have to stay with short races now, my new norm. I've gained 25 pounds since 2011. I joined Sparkspeople to track weight and calories in 2007. Now, once again I'm back in 2014 as I believe an essential part of running fast is in managing one's weight. I'm staying with my username, as almost every morning run and sometimes in the evening, I'm truly running with deer.
My current goals are:

improving my speed for the local 5k and to encourage friends and other runners along the way!

Thanks again for commenting on my blog! I agree..once I started going with my run, I was pretty warm. In fact, my hands started sweating about 10 minutes into the run. haha.

In the dead of winter when the snow is really coming down and it is in the teens, I'll have to trade running outside for cross training inside. That would be too dangerous anyway.

Thanks for the blog comment. That was a funny story about the guy in khaki shorts. :-)

Thanks for the comment on my blog about signing up for another half marathon. I did decide to do it, and will register on Friday. I have tried to recruit a couple of friends who are runners to do it also, they are thinking about it. I needed something to focus on to keep me running because I feel myself starting to slack off just a little. I think this is the motivation I need. Thanks again!
