It's Thursday, less than 48 hours to go now. If you are coming bring rain gear, or make SURE you have anti-chafe balm. It looks like we may have some rain Saturday :-( (REALLY hope I'm wrong about that). Other than the possible of rain the weather is good, temp is in the high 50s in the morning and the afternoons have been in low 70s.

Well the marathon is on for this weekend. They started putting up the route signs, and the pellets for the water stations have been dropped off. I have not been down by the starting line this year. (I've been move across base, I use to work down by the start and finish line, now I'm up near the middle of the course)

Weather is still looking good, would recommend bring rain gear :-( hope I'm wrong about that.

I always look forward to your updates, Tom. Even though I live here, it helps to build the excitement for the weekend.

Are you going to JASR in 2014?

If you have not been to Dayton during the marathon, the morning can be cool and damp,
Because the starting line is down on the old fly line, if the wind pickups, it gets really cold.

So far the last four years have been idea for running cool in the morning and low 80s around noon. The down side is the last 4 miles have very little shad.

I am posting this on the Rookie Runners team also so I apologize if you see this twice.

This came from the WPAFB facebook page about amount of hydration needed. Didn't know which thread to post this so figured this was as good as any.

Ok, so all of the close (to Laurie) hotels are sold out! Trying to find someplace within 10 miles. Will report back with my findings.

On the other hand or foot. The ortho confirms that my foot is only tendinitis, so I'm good to train. Now, if only the weather would cooperate.

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

So excited! I just called the store in Kettering, OH and ordered my AF marathon training shirt. Its $19.99 plus $7 shipping and handling. So worth it to me. I want to wear that shirt running here in the Quad Cities!

"Deep Pockets," Bill? That's definitely not an adjective used for me before! I'm willing to pay what I need to if it means DD gets interested in fitness. I'm glad you're seeing the ortho tomorrow. Hopefully you can get some answers & heal quickly!

Well, the xrays didn't show a fracture anywhere in the foot. What they did see was a bone chip on the ankle, so I'm wearing a splint to protect it.

So, good news no fracture; bad news no news yet.

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

No worries for you "DEEP POCKETS" Renee!

Seeing the ortho on Friday for full confirmation that nothing/something is up with my foot. Keep those fingers crossed.

Elsa, that's fantastic news! I won't be a getting a hotel room myself, since I'll either be staying with a friend or my dad. I grew up around the base, though, so I may be able to answer questions about a certain hotel or area.

Bill & Laurie, sorry your plans fell through for today. I decided not to run & mow the non-swampy parts of my yard, pull out some dead shrubs & clean the garage. Running would've so much more fun, but the house is desperate for attention! Probably having the same kind of "fun" tomorrow.

Hotels are filling fast that are close to the Air base. Where is everyone else staying? I found a room at the Ramada Limited (about 10min from museum). Apparantly, this race is so popular rooms fill up a year in advance! emoticon

My husband and I are staying at Country Inn and Suites Fairborn South which is supposed to be te closest hotel to the starting line. I made this reservation way back December 10. Here is the link the AF Marathon folks have to hotels.

I just know there is something out there that is available still. I am thinking that you need to get on it though. Fingers crossed!

HOLY $#&^ Elsa! That's awesome news!

The hotel that Laurie is staying at is full, but I'm actively looking at options nearby. I'll keep everyone apprised of where I'm staying.

Same thing here Laurie, plans way laid. I was all excited to get out and ride my bike for the first time, but a broken piece of my helmet. emoticon What a way to ruin my day! Since I was already mentally to do something I went out and mowed the yard and did some edging.

Tomorrow I'll be trying to run for the first time since the marathon. I'm going out early and hope to lay down a few miles; nothing groundbreaking.

Happy Memorial Day!

Well, Jim and I were going to go to our favorite bike path along the Mississippi River here in Moline, IL (home of John Deere...oh ya) and we woke up to fog, drizzle and t'storms on their way. So, we will go to Plan B and sleep in. We will do it tomorrow morning although the temps will be higher but we get there early anywho. I have a 7 mile long run which is pretty short considering. I am still on my HM training sabbatical. I am doing more ST and crosstraining crapola. I am losing inches!

Today, clean bathrooms (would rather have my eyelashes plucked out slowly one at at time), laundry, groceries, a workout and going to our local nursery for my flowers. I had better get my plantings before Fall gets here.

Hey Elsa! Glad you're here!

Laura decided to sign up for the 5k too! It will be her first race ever. I think she wants the bling too (and who can blame her, right?) She says she's going to walk it, but I'm going to try to convince her to do some running. If nothing else, it's a great first step for my smoking, McDonald's-scarfing, exercise-phobic DD to take!

She decided to start living the life she’d imagined. Celebrate her freedom.

She turned her can'ts into cans, and her dreams into plans. Celebrate her goals.

Elsa, the important thing is that you are here! You are right, you never know and if it does work out...awesome! Next year though, right?

You should see what techniques I pulled out on Suezette!

Everyone, please welcome William to our group! He lives in Mason too, so please don't tell him too many embarrassing stories about me yet; remember that I'll probably bump into him around town! He's a nice guy with better taste in music than our homeboy Bill.

Off to clean something.

Sounds like Renee is quite the juggler!

Here's a thought for the team; have ALL of the running forums send out a link to the team. I've done this in the past for other things when I'm not the team leader. Laurie, just draft a quick SP mail, shoot it to the TLs and ask that they send it to their respective teams. Otherwise it might just be the '4 amigos' on this team.



Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

Sorry...I was preoccupied with 3 Google chats, Facebook, comments about twisted grannie panties on my SparkPage, and a whole bunch of teen angst! Luckily, I preoccupied Laura by letting her look at housing in VA Beach & elsewhere. That took care of one problem.

Bill, let the "chump" thing die or I'm going to encourage the "Lil Bill" talk even more! And please place a bulk order of your training aid...Laura & I both want one. Heck, we should get them for the whole team & wear them to the race! Everyone would recognize Mel, that's for sure!

So jealous of the goodie. Someone was distracting me again!

Last BLC round I over-extended my goodie points account... still haven't recovered! It would help if my darn wheel ever gave me anything over a "3"! Boo Hiss!

The term "training aid" is open to so many possibilities that it hurts my head.

Yep. There is to be no serious discussions here as this thread is reserved for general dribble and nonsense.
