Finally got my race done. I wogged on my treadmill in 49:57. I struggled with it at first and then got into a good rhythm about half way through. I enjoy it so much that I seriously don't understand why I don't train more consistantly. Wrote a blog about it that I hope helps me.

Great job Dee!! I'm proud of you! emoticon emoticon

VP, I'm sorry you are sick AGAIN! I think you've had your quota of illness for 2013 as well. I hope you're feeling better soon and I'm sorry you had to step back from this race.

I'm sending all the positive energy I can for you.

I was going to go outside and walk my 4 miles today (non race related) because at 41 degrees it was the warmest day this week for Chicago. I was very disappointed because it was very windy and cold for 40. Oh well, it's the middle of February and Spring is coming soon with it's greenery and warm weather!

Praying for you VP! You've had a lot to deal with medically in 2013 already! Take good care of yourself so you can heal.

Dee - good luck with your run today!

I know all you girls can do this! At the end of the day, you're winners because you each went out and did your best!

So you didn't set a Guinness World Record - you can still say you did a 5K!!

Go get 'em Tigers!!

I'll be on my treadmill for mine but I am so proud of everyone who wants to or is going to complete your race outside in the beautiful fresh air!

My training has been non existant since my last virtual race so my goal is simply to finish a 5K!

Rooting for everyone! Give it your best!

So next week it is!

I'm hoping for a bit warmer weather Sunday and no snow or rain. I REALLY want to do this outside.

Weather said 41 on Sunday and partly sunny. Hopefully it will hold and we won't get much snow today. OH AND people will clean their sidewalks.

Oh man VP! If anything I think the run will lessen some of the soreness Jillian will inflict.

I'm giving serious thought to running this one outdoors. I downloaded the RunKeeper app last month and tried it out on my walk on Friday, it's pretty simple to use (I'm technically challenged). The boyfriend also just got me one of those arm band phone holder thingamabobs. So weather permitting... I have no excuse.

Me too Dee, the last thing I ran was the New Years 5km. Even if I walk it, I am in. Unless Jillian completely paralyzes me by then.... Lol

Hope your feeling better Paula. I am fighting a sinus thing and think I may need to hit the doc soon.

D - I was just saying that I wish I still had my air brace to help with some of the lateral issues. Really I need to go to the surgeon and get the metal out, but ugh, not ready for the time off my feet. My screws are working their way out. Heard it is much easier to get the stuff out.

I'm in! If I ever get rid of this sinus issue, I want to try to train to run it faster. Although, maybe by that time I can run it outside, then no problems speeding it up.

I chose the running option (which I thought I did for the New Year's Day race, but apparently didn't).
I may do my run on Valentine's Day emoticon night (the boyfriend and I don't 'celebrate' it) and the gym should be empty.
