Hi runners!

I'm running Big Sur this weekend! I'm so excited and apprehensive at the same time. They have a pretty strict time limit, so I'm hoping I'll make it. Appreciate good thoughts and prayers coming my way! :)

Running/walking is my passion. As the saying goes, someday I may not be able to run or do marathons, but today is not that day!

I am running a trail half marathon in Bear Mountain Park, NY coming up on 1 May. I have been running a mix of road, treadmill, and trail to get ready for it. It is a challenging route, but I have had a good train up for it.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations. We fall to the level of our training.

Congrats to you to Sunshine on the HM and best of luck to you on your next run. I'll be moving up to Lake Lure (near Ashville) later this year or early next year. I'm looking forward to running in the hills or Western NC.

Completed my First Half Marathon for 2016, Raleigh Rock N Roll!!

It was freezing, temps in the 20's after enjoying mild temps in the 70's- 80's. My time was only off by a few of minutes..02:12 vs. 02:18.. I believe trying to get out of leaf bag around mile 4.. I never ran a race in such freezing temps before.. I am use to FL Weather. Here are a few pictures..

Next Half Marathon is June 4th. Raleigh Spring Race 13.1 starting at North Hills and it Runs through the Beautiful Greenways here in Raleigh..







I decided to sign up for it again at such a great low reduced price for 2017..

My next race is Saturday - "It's a Wonderful Run" 5K in Seneca Falls, NY. The town is the basis for the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" and the race ends on the bridge over the canal, just like in the movie. It starts are 4:40 so all the town Christmas lights come on along the route as you're running. And the best part, it's supposed to be 60 degrees on Saturday - in Upstate NY in December it's normally in the 20's and snowing like crazy!

Oh! My brother in law and his family are in Huntington Beach. They love it there, but they are moving to NY (reluctantly). Good luck on the race, hope you have a great one!

Looking forward to a half marathon at Huntington Beach on August 22. It should be an interesting one, not put on by one of the big race organizers, just a small informal race. Running for the fun of it! That sounds perfect.

Every day, After having been all over the world since I was 5, I'm thankful for living in the Tampa Bay area but the Gulf! Here's one more reason....

Friday night, I ran in this Sunsets at Pier 60 Race Series. It starts with a Kids1 Mile Run followed by a 5K on Clearwater Beach. Literally, it's on the sands right next to the water break! I had a sore Achilles so I took it easy but all things considered, I did pretty good. More than half of our Triathlon runs here will include running on sand or beach trail so it's good practice.
We also have the Madeira Beach Series, held on the beach as well! I have to say it definitely is sweet to have these beach runs! And the sunsets are the best!

Focusing on Top Gun Triathlon at Ft DeSoto at the end of the month! Rockin' swim, bike, & run routines. I'm hoping to get a couple of easy miles in this evening with my Safety Harbor Athletic Club! Gotta keep loose!

Did the Kiwanis Midnight Run last night, developed a plan, stayed with it, and in a huge field, found myself at the 3rd Place spot on the podium!

Sounds great! I have a 5-miler coming up on 4th of July. I have run the race 4 out of the last 5 years and have finished in the 38-40 minute range. I have been putting in the training miles, but seem to be falling off of my pace. Would like to come in under 40 but that may be a stretch right now. We will see!

Since I had been away, I went into a new age group on May 25, my 65th birthday. I took first in my last two races in the 60-64 AG and took two 3rds in my new AG. Tomorrow, I'm doing a fun 5K in Gulfport, a few miles south of me. I'm just going to do an easy pace and have fun with my friends on this one.I've been doing better since I've become less competitive and embraced the fun of the race. Go figure.

No racing currently on the calendar for me. I don't do well in the heat and humidity so no need to spend my money on races I know I won't do well at. :)

Just signed up for the Bay Village, OH 5 miler on July 4th. I have run it 4 out of the past 5 years and it is a flat, fast race.

Happy racing!

Congrats PMRUNNER on your 1/2 marathon this past weekend- and thanks for sharing your blog with us! Sounds like you had an awesome time.

I did a 10 mile trail race this past Saturday in the mountains of Chattanooga, TN. VERY technical (think rocks, rocks and more rocks) and my body took a beating. But the scenery was awesome with incredible bluff views, multiple stream crossings, and several waterfalls. I finished without falling, so consider that a success! I had a great time and can't wait to do my next trail race!

Eliminate excuses and avoid procrastination! Just Do It!

Blessings to you all,
Kim

I did it! I did my first trail race yesterday! I almost missed it because my car would not start but then a sent a text to the group of women I run with and one of them picked me up and she was not even running the race! How nice was that! This race was a doozie. It was not really a trail race since there was very little trail. emoticon It was more of a field run and there was a stream you had to run though twice! I could not decide if I loved it or hated it for most of the rest of the day but then I found my self registering for another one before going to bed last night. I may write a short blog about it.

Run On! Karen

Good luck! I did my first trail race last spring, it was a marathon relay. I enjoyed it, except for the fact that there was about two inches of rain two days before and the trails were muddy torrents for most of the race.

Planning on running a half marathon in West Point, NY at the end of March. A friend from Brooklyn is coming up to run it too.
