I personally dont run with a poncho - i have a light weight pull over that I use for colder weather but found that ponchos "messed up my groove" so being from the Pacific NW I channel my inner duck and let it just roll off my back ....but I have warm and dry stuff to change into when I am done =)

Good Luck!!

I have my 2nd half 12/09/12, Santa to the Sea in Ventura County (CA). It may be a wet day--any tips on running in the rain or drizzle? Pancho worthy?

Thanks. : ) and happy training.

Hi all! I'm running the Princeton Half Marathon on Sunday. It's my first half since I had my baby in February. I've very excited...and a little apprehensive as the recovery was tougher than I expected and there's still some nagging pains. But, regardless, can't wait to spend some time our enjoying the fall weather :)

I ran my second half, and last race of 2012 this morning. It was the Rush Creek Stampede in the tiny town of Cambridge, Idaho. It was a little disorganized, but it seemed like the whole community came out to put the event on, and it was really fun. The run went up about 5 miles of gentle hills, then took a loop through some really scenic cattle ranches and over Rush Creek, with the snow line on the mountain just above us. I really fueled up after sort of bonking at Ste. Chapelle on September 30th, and that helped a lot. I felt great and really only struggled with the last two miles, but made my sub-2 hour goal with a 1:59:37 finish. It was a great way to end the season!

Congratulations STRIVER! I have been plagued with chronic Achilles tendonitis and I know how hard it is to recover from tendonitis. You did a terrific job!!!!!

My last half of the year is this Sunday (10/14) The Green Mountain Half Marathon. It will be a hard one! It's next to the lake and although it is a flat course, the weather is calling for Wind! It can get REALLY windy by the lake. I am a bit nervous, as my running has gotten harder and I am not even sure I will be able to finish it in good conditions! But whatever happens, happens!

Learn to love yourself!

i just did my first half!! the royal parks half marathon in London. considering that i was almost ready in early June, got tendonitis and couldn't run again til August 12 -- the Galloway method saved me, made it possible for me to train, to run the half, and to do as well as i expected to do back in June when i was doing straight running. ran 45-second intervals, 12:06 pace, 2h40:50 chip time. not bad for a first half-marathon two weeks before my 61st birthday. gorgeous fun flat fast course -- best sightseeing tour of London possible. thanks to all for your encouragement.

I just did the "Moscow Mountain Madness" half marathon today (9/9/12). For those of you who are in the region (N. Idaho) and would like to try a trail run, think about it for next year. It is a beautiful run, if challenging. And a nice small field (@100).

I have no "goal weight". MY goal is to be as healthy, strong and active as I can be. This isn't about my relationship with the scale but my relationship with the world.

I'm signed up for the Iron Horse Half Marathon in Midway, KY on 10/14/12. I too will be using the Galloway run/walk method for this, my first HM and I am excited and nervous. There is a 14:00 minute mile minimum at the halfway point or they will ask you to stop. Hope I'm up to it! It's pretty hilly!

I found a virtual HM through Moms RUN This Town - even with bling! If you want the bling - registration is open through 7/19/12 midnight Eastern. Paid registration for the bling is $11. There is a free option too if you want to skip the bling. This is going to be my second virtual HM and number 8 for the year so far =).

Received an email this morning that my half (this Saturday) was cancelled. Sucks! Now I have to decide if I want to do another one yet this year. I'm bummed...

Job 12:7-10
7 "But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you;
8 or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you.
9 Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?
10 In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.

I'll be running in the Tromptown Run Half Marathon on August 9th in DeRuyter, NY. This race starts at 5:30 PM for people like me who expect to take longer than two hours, and at 6:15 for the more competent. I hope to significantly improve on my time of 2:25:52 in my first HM, the Binghamton Bridge Run on May 6th.


You don't need to beat anyone else to be a winner.

Erica, I'm running Divas LI too (along with 5 of my friends!) I can't wait!

I have no "goal weight". MY goal is to be as healthy, strong and active as I can be. This isn't about my relationship with the scale but my relationship with the world.

Had signed up for the Rain Forest half marathon on the Big Island of Hawaii, but just decided to run my 2nd and 3rd full marathons (Portland & Honolulu) so now I have doubled my mileage. Of course still super excited for the rain forest half since it's supposed to be really amazing, but now I have to completely change my mental state to run further than the 13.1 distance again, which I never thought I would. Oh well....I at least know I will be ready for this half!! Love the 13.1 distance!! WOOHOO

I have run 4 full marathons and 2 1/2 marathons in a year (CRAZY). So after number 4 I was burned out beyond belief! This year I am working with a girlfriend who is new to running and we just started training for the Kansas City 1/2 marathon in October. I am super excited to go on this journey with her and need someone to keep me motivated to get on the crazy train again!
