First race of the season for me, a 5 miler. Holy hills batman!!!! It was so not what I am used to running (flat roads). This was through a vineyard on compacted dirt and a number of hills. What makes this WooHoo worthy...I kept my pace despite the hills :) Next week - Philly Broad Street Run 10 miler!!!

HEALTHYCHIC, good to see you back. I managed to get out for an outdoor run for the first time since November last year. Did pretty good, 4.5 miles. Winter just will not let go but this weekend is going to be actually Spring like... im so excited.

It's been so long since i've been active on this team. Trying to make some changes and get back my fitness focus.

I came over to woo hoo myself for taking the jogger out and running 2.5 miles yesterday. Contemplating which Halfs to sign up for this year. Its all dependant on how our house-buying and moving goes.

Ok, this isn't a race I signed up for (which I need to do), but, yesterday, I actually ran on the treadmill for 3 miles (not stopping for any breaks) at 6.6 pace (9:05 min mile!). That is huge for me. I felt so awesome the whole day. I couldn't stop bragging to my DH and kids. I've been running on the treadmill to try to up my speed and it's working. Now, I'm hoping to get outside on Saturday and see how well I do. Fingers crossed that I don't disappoint myself!!

Signed up for a 10K in 2 1/2 weeks and the first of three halfs for this year in just 5 1/2 weeks. Heading out this afternoon to meet up with friends for 8 or so (very slow) miles.

I was finally able to go for an outdoor run Saturday and Sunday. It felt good but Saturday was tough. I live where I have a lot of hills so I only ran 2 miles but did 4 on Sunday. Felt great. Looking forward to this weekend to run some more.

Life is short so enjoy every moment!

It's getting close to where us runners can really start getting out there... well at least those of us lucky enough to get temps over 32.

This time of year is a great time to get the dust off, get out there, and rack up some woo hoo's!

Share them here :)
