Congratulations Debbie on running that HM under 3 hours. Now stop qualifying your runs as slow. Speed does not define a runner. You run - you are a runner. Fast runners don't call themselves fast runners and regardless of how slow you think you are, don't call yourself slow! I am guilty of doing so myself and am constantly reminded by seasoned runners not to do so. We run, we are runners!

Oops, I think I posted this on the wrong thread... I completed a half marathon on Sunday 10/20. I wanted to finish in less than 3 hours, even though I know that is really slow running, and I finished in 2:56.

Wishing everyone racing a great run - especially NanleyKW on your first HM!

Not registered for any races this week - still in recovery from Sunday's HM, but there is a 5K race I might run on Sunday.

My first half-marathon (the Monster Dash half in Chicago) is this Sunday, the 20th. I am super-excited! This will be my first race that my husband and kids will be there for, and a few friends are planning to come out and cheer me on, too. I would love to run it in 2:10, but since it's my first, I'm not overly concerned about hitting that time goal. I just want to enjoy it, which I know I will!

Welcome to this week's race thread.

It's the thread where you can tell us all about your races coming up this week, and also to link your blogs for the past week's races.

So if you are doing any kind of race or special event this week (and it doesn't have to be running - biking, walking, testing for a new karate level - they all count), please let us know on this thread.

And if you completed something last weekend, and wrote a blog about it, please post your blog links here. It's a great way to celebrate your accomplishment.
