Thanks Bobby! I admit that I got on it due to the possibility of winning a free entry in the Pgh Half, but I was definitely going to participate no matter what. Woohoo!

Awwww, I just saw this!! I have to say that I've been overwhelmed by all of the support. It was pretty amazing to complete my first Ironman and hear Mike Reilly call my name - pretty surreal to hear it from the guy who calls the names of the world champions in Kona! Swim went as planned, bike was awesome, and I met my goal on the run - only walked the aid stations, but do find that I'm wishing I'd found a way to dig deeper and run faster. It is all a journey.

A couple of things.

Our friend Ann (from Columbus) is 11 miles from completing her first ironman - Ironman Arizona. She is on the run LOL .. cruising at about 13 min miles. I am so stinking proud of her!!!


I will not be in Cinci - time wise it just won't work for me.

hi folks hope you are all running your tails off not that the weather has started to cool down.

so anyhow if you have not heard yet JASR 2013 is on easter weekend...... so i am sure numbers will be way down with the exception of the local runners. we have discussed this among many of the regulars and out of towners for JASR and decided that we are not going to make it a large event this year emoticon

HOWEVER 2014 WILL BE BACK STRONGER THAN EVER, GUARANTEED !!!!!!!!!

SO.... 2013 will be the year of the PIG in cincinnati oh
www.flyingpigmarathon.com/

there is a 5 and 10k on saturday 5/4/13 and a half and full marathon along with a 4 person relay on sunday 5/5/13. many of the JASR crew plan on attending the PIG, we can continue to use the spark people JASR team to communicate until some local cincinatian can start a PIG team (Hint, Hint) to pass out info, set up hotels etc...... again hint, hint

if your heart is set on visiting pittsburgh in 2013 there is the rock and roll half marathon in august that several of us are doing also..

anyhow hope to many of you at the PIG!

Great read!

Well, I'm side lined right now with PF...guess I should have known I couldn't go on forever without something to have to hurdle...bummer. Anyway, I guess I needed to be reminded that there are rules for a reason...duh.

Nice to have met you all but dropping off since JASR seems to not be a big thing for next year---was looking forward to meeting lots of Sparklers---so maybe I will rejoin next year when you all are not so worried about it being on Easter.

I'm way behind on all of the chit chat. Bummer that JASR is on Easter. Flying Pig might be a possibility--have always wanted to run that one--maybe in a pink tutu and pig ears.

The one thing about Easter date is that I would not have to take off time from work to go---sure hope this does not keep everyone from doing the annual event.

I wondered why there has been so much facebook chatter as to JASR or the PIG...didn't even occur to me that the date was part of the equation....makes the Pig more attractive for sure.

JASR on Easter - that blows. I am not sure I will be able to swim Cinci next year. I am with a group running 'american odyssey relay' the weekend before (AOR is very similar to hood to coast - except the route goes from Gettysburg to DC)

Oh Bobby, for a guy who has been off program for a while you are really hitting it hard...best wishes for the new shoes and getting re-trained. It was bad enough for me having been unable to run for a month and little before that with a preceeding month off...feel like I'm a beginner in many ways and the heat hasn't helped. Oh well....no excuses for any of us!

Slow and steady helps!
Still on Vacation here in PA---actually about 2 hours from Pittsburg in Albion visiting a Spark friend. Last week we traveled to Michigan and met up with 7 Sparklers from there and next Sunday we hope to meet up with 2 Ohio Sparklers. Not much exercise except walking in stores ---mostly due this horrible heat this week---hoping to do better next week and back to exercise when I get home to MD.

i am very happy for ya judi it has been a long time getting back, just continue to be patient and don't push anything.

well it has been a long time since i have done anything but since i have felt like sh** for 12 days, so i took a page from the Penny book and said "suck it up cupcake"!!! first time swimming this year 500 yrds, i think my arms and shoulders are going to fall off. then i went out for a 5 mile spin on the bike, heavy legs. anyhow i got out and if i don't die tonight that is a good start.

i almost forgot to tell ya all i ordered new shoes yesterday, the last time i ran was JASR and really i ran very little prior to that so it has been pretty much 4 months with no running..... so when the shoes arrive it will be pretty much starting over for me, the legs are weak, the lungs are weak, and i am not sure how the leg is going to react but i am going to give it a go, baby step, right???

I'm due for a setback, as things have been going way to well lately! LOL

We have the camper at the lake, so spending evenings and weekends down there. I'm just in for my SparkLive! class this morning and then to sing at a funeral this afternoon with our community choir. Then it's back out to the lake for more fun. I haven't gotten my kayak into the water yet, so that might be this afternoon's project.

And I'm running again - with no I'll effects felt. I'm so stinking' happy about that! I started with one day a week in May, added a second day per week in June, and I'm about to add a third day per week anytime now. I'm following a 10K learn to run program, and so far so good - ready to scale back at the first signs of trouble, but so far, so good.

You didn't mention how your summer's going. Legs recovered from the century?

On November my SP friend Robert (on2victory) and I will be running the Fall Classic. He and I will be running the half marathon as he is making his way to upstate NY to celebrate Thanksgiving the following week (the event has a HM and a 5k) - if you want to join us - you can register at www.active.com/running/strongsville-oh/37t

I am not going to make it an official Spark-event like JASR - but if you want to join us - feel free. The event is located just south of the Cleveland Airport off I-71 ... and it fills up over the summer.

Hmmm - Bobby - you gave me something to think about - walking the Rock and Roll -
Renee and I walked the 8 miles at JASR in 2 hours - 15 minute miles. Can I go 5 more miles? My long term goal is to walk a half. Gotta make a plan! Thanks!

Think I would prefer the cooler temps of the JASR---but if it is not going to be a big event next year for us, I will probably wait til the next year.

JASR will be an annual event however 2013 is on Easter weekend so not many will attend and we will not be doing much of the extra stuff. JASR there is a 5k walk and 8.1 mile walk.

Rock and Roll half marathon (13.1 miles) 8/4/2013 is just an extra event that several people may attend also. you can walk the event but it has to be at very fast pace, don't quote me but i think there is a4 hr time limit which is about a 17 minute mile pace??????

color me rad is just a fun walk/run event 8/25/12

Good to hear Bobby. I kept thinking of all those trees in bloom and the leaves - heavy with snow. We had alot of limbs broken here without leaves or blossums on. I'm glad you didn't get much.

Got in lots of steps yesterday at the Smithsonian----did the American History Museum and then went to the National Gallery of Art ---haven't been in that one since I was a teen---over40 years ago. And we had beautiful weather for it. And we are finally getting much needed rain here today.

you know mel even at a race they are handy. i had a guy that had that i helped to the finish of a race one day because he was a diabetic and was having some issues, what i found out is at his last race he passed out. with the road id you know if there are medical issues is someone is down and out. hope you never need one but for 20 bucks it is so worth it.
