Hey all

Really happy to hear of the JASR joy.... you guys are so awesome...

My race today was awesome... I have no idea where I placed at all but I did a PB for the distance... and on the way was 30sec of 5kpb then the sam off 10kpb which is just a major bonus.... in the end i covered 14.45km in 69:30 - I went in thinkin I would be happy with a 75min time for the race so I totally rocked it and smashed my expectations.


Cheers

OHmy, I have to pop in as well....what an amazing experience...I promise to share, but for now, I am at 2AM, and likely won't sleep until much later...

My half was amazing, running with Deej...dang, you can't make that stuff up!!! NEVER will I match the feeling of running through the race chute holding hands up high....

Talk later, dang, I cry way too easy!!!

Sitting here waiting for Suezette to get out of the shower so I thought I'd pop in. We finished in 2:26 (by my Garmin). I'm so tired now. There should be pictures posted soon. Going to go shower and eat. Back later!

Kirsten I hope you are on the road by now. Travel safe.

All of the rest of you at JASR sounds like you are having a great time. May have to put it on my list for next year. Great way to celebrate my 50th.

I will be running again on sunday. I seem to be running about twice a week. I did try once this week on the treadmill since it was raining here. But no umpf that night and settled for walking.

Rich - run a GREAT race! Don't mean for you to be overshadowed by all the JASR'ers... it's almost like you'll be running with them! What distance are you going?

All the rest of you!! PICTURES! Penny is doing well, so where's the rest?? LOLOL Remember those poor souls of us left behind in the NM need to live vicariously, hehehe.

In the meantime, I'll just sit here by my lonely self, crying in my chocolate. emoticon

Thought I was feeling much better today (really, I AM), and went out to go shopping. By the time I walked from the parking lot to the store, I was ready for bed! Not coughing much anymore, but everytime I do it just wipes me out. Darn thing! Did I mention I seem to have shared with the hubs? Oooops. emoticon

Everybody running tomorrow, run well, run strong, and run safe. Our spirits and hearts are running along with you! emoticon

Holy what a crazy day!! Started with sleeping in, what an event in itself!! Deej picked me up, and we headed back to the other hotel, then off on a wee jaunt at the race route. Had a truly wonderful moment in the park. I never dreamed that I would be running with 3 crazy wonderful ladies at the same time, and Deej, Nancy and I went for a run today. I can't speak for them, but I was choked up for the first mile for sure. It was like running with a couple of long-time friends, which they are - so nice that we were able to share that time. Judi got some pics of us, which I am sooooo happy about, because it is something that I will cherish forever.

We had a airplane run through Pittsburgh, and we all really wanted to sight-see, so Deej so graciously allowed us the opportunity to see the city from a bunch of different angles. We "veered" so well, even took pics, and it was only a short hour or so until we made our destination. Out for lunch after that, then we went to our rooms to freshen up.

Tonight was awesome, I had a secret, and it showed up pretty late - SisAnne came to visit Pittsburgh - it was way cool to give her a HUGE hug - my sista from another mista and I got to finally meet - sweety, you are amazing, and I am soooo blessed to hang with you for a wee bit.

I am going to blog...although it will be after tomorrow - Bobby and Anne are picking me up in less than 8 hours, and I am going to run a "relationship" race...Deej and I decided this one wasn't for a PR, or to test ourselves, or to kill ourselves, it is all about relationships and getting to know some wonderful people!! We will be running tomorrow, and will think about you guys along the way (and very likely have a rather dynamic Naughty Mansion discussion).

Hugs and love!

Trish

Rich, best of luck on your race - I'll bet it's going to be a BLAST.
I won't have time to check in again till tomorrow night I'd guess. Have a GREAT Saturday all.

What a fabulous time the JASR's are having! How exciting to have Trish drop a bomb like that!

And Nancy crying?? What a surprise!! LOL

Nera - isn't that the BEST feeling when your mind frees up and you're able to just run! Sorry it started whining at the end but keep it up and maybe it will be able to go for longer...

Kirsten - Did Beth take you up on it? Drive safely!

Well, I'm finally feeling much better today. Still coughing junk out of my lungs when I first wake up but mostly feeling about 85-90% today. Yesterday I just kept falling asleep... guess that was what I needed. Now I've got to buckle down and get the room ready for my BIL - he's coming in on Monday.

Will check back later. Got to get off the computer and go have breakfast.

the only thing i can say is " dam" ! trish dropped a bomb on all of us by showing up in pittsburgh, what a fantastic way to start the weekend of JASR.
i knew i was going to get to meet penny, judi and wood for the first time, it was really hard to control all of you emotions knowing that but then you walk into the lobby and add trish to the list, what a great day.

and the fun begins.........................

Hey all,
Just another normal day..nothing new to report, except that...

I am in Pittsburgh about to do a 1/2 at JASR!!!!!! Man what a cool day, I will blog about it for sure, but meeting Lynn and her daughter when they picked me up at the airport was such an amazing experience, did you know that someone from BC, Canada has an accent??? Apparently it is true...."eh?". After that, I got to meet Deej (dang chicka, you hug great:)), while watching Nanc...my dearest Nanc...I brought kleenex just because of you. Judi, Penny, and Roo were the rest of the Canadian connection. We have NEVER gotten together at the same time before, it was truly AMAZING!

It was amazing to see Bobby and Anne - I just love those two like they were my family - great to know that who I envisioned is EXACTLY who they are. Wood and Luv were there as well, and man, I totally felt at home with them right off the bat. It was great to chat over a wine before things got more crazy.

Suezette showed up after the fact, but she had NO idea I was coming either, so her mouth was about as big as it needed to be to take on a rather large coconut!! LOL, Girlfriend, I LOVE you!!!

Anyhow, let the madness begin - thanks all of you for standing by me through everything - LOVE you a ton!!!

Hugs,
Trish

Have fun and travel safe all of you going to JASR.

My good run tonight must have been in honor of JASR. LOL!!! I ran 1.09 miles with out any walk breaks. Still not fast but what was amazing was for most of the run my mind was wandering and thinking about things other than- my feet hurt, how long do I have to do this, let's stop. I have never had a run where my mind didn't whine the whole time. I thought I had switched brains with some one. LOL!!!! I hope I have turned a mental corner and can run like this more often. I would have to say it was the most enjoyable run I have ever had. One caveat this great mental attitude didn't last the whole time. The last .09 miles was a bit more of the when can I stop attitude. LOL!!!!!

Well I'll be rooming with Judi, Dani and Anne (AMCG2002) - so I don't know how much sleep there's going to be. I'll be careful though, Anne, don't you worry.

I sure hope that mother cat comes back soon - yikes! Poor babies - and you need more mouths to (laboriously) feed like you need extra holes in the head I would think! Have fun with the run on Saturday - walk a little bit for me and Judi too if you want to.
;o)

Gee, I'm chatty when I'm done my work!

OMG!!! So much excitement here right now!!!
Beth-I sure hope the recovery is better than last time? Same elbow? now, which is the outside of the elbow(golfer/tennis?) Mine is outside but all the way down the outside/top of forearm.
Anne and Bobby!!! what's going on this weekend? ya'll will be sitting around doing nothing??? emoticon
Kirsten-OMG! Girl,drive safely,PLEASE!!! You're spending the night in PA Sat,right?? Hopefully, so you can sleep sometime.
Beauty-welcome back! and have a blast on Sunday!!! Get caught up in the excitement and just run,Baby,run!!!(and walk if necessary,no harm there)
Deej-safe travels~~~and 8 mile beach run..SWEET!
Yes, I'm going to ghost Anne on Saturday. Anne-I do not have an awful sounding uphill(and I can use the excuse that PT says to avoid them for now) but I will do my best. I'm super excited and don't you worry...I'll wait up for you to cross the line together!
So, this weekend will be busy with various drivings to and fro and Jeremy's birthday on Sunday. PLUS-the darned mother cat left. Gee whiz! what was she thinking?? 4 babies,5 days old. HONESTLY!! She was in the garage with them,hasn't left their side much at all but the past couple days likes to come outside to wander a bit(some "ME" time...I totally hear that.) But, this morning,she wasn't there...babies are inside now with heating pad under their box and I found an online recipe for kitty 'glop' so off to the store went I for ingredients. Made it,fed them...hope they make it or there will be some very upset children here. Luckily, they are very feisty and fat already.
Okay, time for more laundry and cleaning...

JASR is coming....JASR is coming!!! Hehehe!
Sprouts is gonna ghost my 8.1 race! Yehaw! But honestly, she is much faster than me so she will have to wait for me at the (imaginary) end :) Sprouts...the race starts at 8:30 a.m. The second half of mile one is a rather huge uphill then a rather steep downhill. After that just lots of rolling, gentle hills. I am slow...but I will finish!

Gotta go finish my pretty JASR nails :)

I will have to read up on road bikes. I just don't get how the gearing can be different.

Trish I am glad Don's chest xray was good. I hope they figure out the blood part soon.

Just got off Google hang out with the son. Haven't talked to him in two weeks. Seems to be okay just very busy with various class projects.

Rich - be good! Rest, relax, meditate...!
BW - welcome back, nice to see you. Glad you are doing well with the running!
Doris - naw, it was stats, but thanks anyway. I got an A, but I've had to settle for regular A's in stats this semester. I tell you, I can NOT read graphs! I don't know what's wrong with me. Oh well. An A's an A. Want to write a paper on cladograms for me though? It's due tomorrow, so get going!!

Just finished my neuro paper, now Bio lab - oh, Doris maybe you could take my Biol quiz on Friday though.

Hubby says he's coming home on the 9 o'clock bus on Friday, which puts him back here around 10 and me sleeping on a bench in the Rose barn by 5am. If I get into town that early I'll head over to the hotel and maybe hitch a ride instead. If you find me sleeping in the lobby, please pick me up and deposit me at the start line. Please.

What else what else what else...?
Trish, hang in there and tell Don to get off his butt and make some of those reds and whites. They're kind of important. sigh. I went through years of that - transfusions and fainting and all sorts of nonsense. Doubtfully for the same reason, but still, just saying I can empathize with him. Stinks. Stateside for tests... sounds expensive!

Carrie, rest up. Like I said, I'm going to need someone to carry me.

Beth, hugs. Aw, hugs.

Jenny, you're a machine.

Sprouts, cut abs? I think that might call for a new profile picture!

Penny, how's the Zen? You going on some kind of trip???

ok, I'm done. Seriously need to start this St*pid biol paper. night all.

*muah*

Kirsten, if itís a test in science, I will take it for you☺
Penny, rain is fun unless it so hard that you canít see. Like it was here this morning!
Trish, phew. No tumor for Don. That is good. Can I give some of my platelets? Its kinda far though. I am a universal donor.
Beth, I know how hard it is to walk out a place that seems like home. I walked out of my school after 25 years and it was very bittersweet.
Sprouts, I am so glad that my DD is no longer living at homeÖno Easter candy here! Phew. Hey, it is ok to be corny about having a flat tummy. Go for it!
Deej, I am envious about your ocean front running.
Jenny, I have no bike and its been so long since Iíve been on one that I donít think I would remember how to change gears.
Carrie, fel better.
Beauty, you will rock your race! It will be a blast and you will wonder what you were worried about. Just enjoy☺
Rich, I donít care what you say. You are a running machine. Walking on your rest day even. Just saying☺
Treadmill today as it was raining, sleeting, snowing here this morning. Then, the sun came out and there was sunshine. NH in the spring, typical.

Hi everyone! I've been a bit MIA, sorry. Been a bit lax on the running too, not so good as the 1st is my race! I'm gonna be running tonight and again on the 30th; thinking tomorrow might be a biking day - there's a nice 7 mile trail nearby, might hit that :)

But I'm back, I'm getting myself ready for the race, doing lots of reading too, educating myself so I do well :)

Can't wait to go running today, it's GORGEOUS out! I don't wanna work, I wanna run!
