Hi Gail- Oct 5 - that's not Portland, is it??

I once thought I'd try to do Boston, but after 5 'thons and a PR that was 40 minutes higher than what I'd need to qualify....gave up the ghost on that goal. :)

Good luck to you!!

Hi and welcome to the road runners.

I have yet to find out what it feels like to run 15+ miles long runs weeks after week, but I will soon find out. I am registered for a Marathon on Oct. 5/08.

I don't expect to run a ton of marathon. I will be happy to get at least one done. But I will have only reached my final running goal on the day I run the Boston Marathon. That may never come, I will just have to wait and see.

There is a lot of chat going on here. For daily continues chat go to the road runners - 2008 tread.

we would love to have you.

Hey Kari,

Welcome aboard...glad to have you part of the team. While, I myself haven't ventured into the 26.2 mile distance, most people I know who have feel the same way as you. That doesn't mean I won't run at least one in my lifetime, but I like having a life outside of running, too. I am running my 2nd 1/2 in November and can't wait. Once again welcome!

HAPPY RUNNING!
Nancy

Hi all... My name is Kari, just found this group and am excited to join an active board for chatting about running!

My story...I started running when I was about 10 years old, going along on jogs with my dad. Doing fun runs and road races together was a great father-daughter activity for us, one I hope to pass on to my future children. So I've been running for TWENTY YEARS...wow, it's weird to see it written like that. :) I was on track & cross-country teams in junior high & high school, gave up competitive running in college though.

I've done several marathons....but after #5, I realized that the long runs, 15+ milers on the weekends, were what was killing my body. When I hit that point I would inevitably feel overtrained & an injury would rear its ugly head. So now my race of choice is the half-marathon.

That's me as a runner! Hope to chat with all of you soon! :)
