Sounds like you were really in race-mode Darcy! I did my first half-marathon this July. Still can't believe that I did that. I have also done some 10K's and a few relay races. Also have taken part in a duathlon...running and biking. Hope that you are recovering and getting your momentum back!

I have actually "sort of" been in Germany...on a highspeed train from Switzerland to Frankfurt. Just an overnighter in a hotel really. We took a trip to Europe 2 years ago...it was spectacular. Can't wait to go again!

Hi, David and Moe! Thanks for the reponses. I also lost weight - about 50 lbs - last year, after the birth of my twins. I really got on a kick, and ran 4 half marathons, a few 10 K, and an 8 K, in the last year and a half. I love running races, though in that last several months, I slowed down a lot, because i got really sick in the summer, which totally threw off my momentum. But I am workin' my way back up!

David, I live in the north, near Hamburg. Actually half way between Hamburg and Bremen. I have lived in Germany for almost 4 years, and speak pretty fluent German. I always say "pretty fluent" because it certainly is NOT perfect! But I can communicate in pretty detailed conversations. But if you don't have an opportunity to practice, its easy to lose!

Welcome Darcy...and David!

Nice to see a post here, it is a rather slow Team I think. lol
I have been running for lets see...8 yrs now I think. I lost 60 lbs, and have been maintaining mostly...but would like to see another 10 lbs disappear.
I do bike also, we bike with a group once a week (in the summer) so I do get a mix. Also do a body toning class 3 times a week.

Nice hearing from you!

Welcome Darcy! I'm new here too. I'll have to get around to doing my own intro.

PS- I have been to Germany twice- a month in HS and 3 months in college. Eschwege in the West in HS and Jena and Oppach in the former East in college (this was after the wall was down). My German stinks now- I used to do okay, but am rusty with it now.

Where are you in Germany?

Hi, my name is Darcy. I am a very dedicated runner. Have been running on and off (the off times mainly due to pregnancies) for about 10 years. I love it! It's definitely my #1 choice form of cardio, though I am getting into biking too. I work out hard and love to push myself! Ain't afraid to work up a good sweat... =) I also do a couple of strength training sessions per week.

I am also a wife and mom, and stay very busy. I'm American, but I live in Germany, which I love. Other hobbies include cooking & baking (everything whole foods and from scratch), working in my garden, playing piano, playing with my kids, and... well leading an active lifestyle!

Well, just wanted to introduce myself and say "hi!" Feel free to check out my profile and send me an add if you want!
