I didn't run, but I keep checking here to see if BeastieGirl has posted her race report! :laugh: Ran yesterday though. made it through my 15k race with my SIL. It was fun! Felt fine, ran nice and easy to finish in 1:28. Was exciting for SIL because that was quite a quick pace for her, and because she had not run a race in at least 10 years! She has a little boy who is about to turn 2 in a week and signing up for this race gave her motivation to train some and get back in shape. So I'm glad I got to do it with her. I have a yucky cold, so no running today. Maybe tomorrow, we'll see.

I think running with your SIL and resting today makes sense. I hope you recover soon.

15 miles with two friends. I drove about 20 minutes to meet them, and it was sunny, but cold, at my house. As soon as I got within 5 minutes of our rendezvous, a huge wall of snow came rushing towards me and turned everything into a white-out. We started the run in near-zero visibility and stinging snow. Luckily it only lasted a few miles.

I had been wondering about you and your SIL's race.  It must have been scary coming back after so much time away.  Glad you were able to help her enjoy the experience and do well, too!

16.4 miles today.

13.2 with my wife in the morning. A nice loop around Lake Monona where we saw 38 lions. They are one of stuck in their migration waiting for northern lakes to break up.

3.2 miles with my son in the afternoon. We ran the last three miles of the Crazylegs course.

I assume you mean loons, not lions! :laugh:
Parent - By Tim [us] Date 2018-04-08 4:50 PM
Or he's gone completely looney tunes...

Damn you, autocorrect! The next sentence is messed up too. :cry:
Parent - By SRoo Date 2018-04-08 6:12 PM
Autocorrect makes your run sound more exciting.  :happy:
Parent - By sideshowbob Date 2018-04-08 5:26 PM
The Detroit Lions moved ?
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2018-04-08 5:44 PM
:wtf:

Good run! That's a lot of running and quality time.
Parent - By IB Date 2018-04-08 10:54 PM
:cool: - Sounds like a nice day.

Way to go auto correct!
Parent - By classicsnerd [us] Date 2018-04-09 10:40 AM
oh you know, just your regular 13.2 miler with 38 lion sightings.
Parent - - By foggydoggy [us] Date 2018-04-09 10:47 AM
I assume you set a PR on the 13.2 segment-- Lions always cause me to speed up!!!

11 miles with one of my skinny blondes. About the same pace as yesterday's half marathon. Nothing else too spectacular going on.
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2018-04-08 5:45 PM
That's a lot running this weekend.

Hope you enjoyed both!

8.5 Gallomiles early , with Eric Clapton .Again the weather changed many times; I experienced 3 seasons this AM . I think the Global Coolers and Global Warmers are in mortal combat in the local area code .
Came home to a warm bowl of old fashioned oatmeal ( steel cut Irish oats, of course ) with craisins and walnuts , courtesy of DW :hug:
Later a 2 mile stroll with said DW . Life is good :happy: I am a very fortunate hombre.
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2018-04-08 5:46 PM
Glad your day is going so well in spite of the weather.
Parent - - By tahoeblue (spamkiller) Date 2018-04-08 10:05 PM
I think you like Clapton - either that or his cassette tape is stuck in your Walkman.
Parent - By sideshowbob Date 2018-04-09 6:28 AM
:laugh: I’m not quite that decrepit to still be in the a Walkman era , but I am a bigly Clapton fan.: pbbt:

I hope you have a great Boston and are successful in raising money for this organization that helped your family so much.

2 hours of spin class this morning, worked my tail off. This afternoon we all took a break from packing and went to some open houses- saw a small but well kept house that I really liked except when we left a crazy neighbor shouted from across the street that the house was overpriced and we shouldn't get it.:laugh: Then we saw a two family that had a two BR apartment that we could rent out on the first floor, with 1 BR, two living rooms, kitchen, laundry on the second floor and another BR and attic space on the third floor. I really loved the idea of having the rental, but there was way too much work left to be done; the backyard was a mess, staircases lacked railings, the basement was completely unfinished and would need some work to be useable- no way. Finally, we saw a cute 3 BR condo in a gated community- I loved the small size, and the indoor pool/gym on the grounds, but it didn't seem to practical for us- no backyard, even a small one, for the dogs. I'd never really thought about a townhouse or condo before today, but It's really growing on me. There are bigger ones around, 3 BR with small backyard. I just have to find them. I think Philip prefers a single-family house, but after the way he cared for this place- or rather, did not care for this place:roll:- I don't want a big lawn if he won't take care of it.

Being at the beginning of your search is always the hardest part.
Parent - By blazer85 [us] Date 2018-04-08 9:03 PM
Take advice from someone who has owned a rental for 12 years (and will hopefully only own it for one more week), you DO NOT want to own a rental.  To me, the idea the tenant would be in the same structure as you, is a nightmare.
- - By noquitter [us] Date 2018-04-08 5:22 PM
6.5 which is a joke because, I only planned to run 5.5 and my friend only planned to run 4. :roll:

Of course we got to talking and forgot to turnaround at the 2.5 mark and decided to cut through and make a loop instead.  We ended up running 6.5 and my best pace on regular run in awhile.  :grin:My friend, told me to not even pretend to be unhappy about this because I am always the one who convinces everyone go farther than they originally intended. : pbbt:

Snow is coming down and I report for jury duty tomorrow. Hopefully, i will be able to meet my modest training goals for this week.
Parent - By SRoo Date 2018-04-08 5:47 PM
Sounds like a good friend.  :grin:

One walking mile, with 3 "pickups" :roll:   indoors at the gym this morning.  :meh:
Parent - - By noquitter [us] Date 2018-04-08 5:54 PM
Did you maybe just run a little bit?
Parent - By Ed [us] Date 2018-04-09 2:55 AM
Calling it "running" would be a major stretch!
- - By SRoo Date 2018-04-08 5:46 PM
1 hour on the spin bike.  My abs are sore from yesterday's lifting.  :roll:
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2018-04-08 5:55 PM
The abs have so many parts, its easy to make them sore. I just hope its easy to make them stronger too. Which reminds me I owe myself one more ab day...

Well, I finished my marathon today.  It wasn't one to put in the record books :laugh:  Ended up just under 4hr 45min, but I placed 5/11 in my age group.  My 42 miles yesterday took a lot more out of me than I thought it might.  I did get awarded 5th place overall, but I've sent the RD a private note to inform him that I was really 6th place.

All in all, a great weekend.  I needed the miles.
Parent - - By noquitter [us] Date 2018-04-08 6:25 PM
Those 42 mile runs are hard to bounce back from. : pbbt:
Parent - By JimGo1 Date 2018-04-08 7:22 PM

Indeed :laugh:
Parent - By blazer85 [us] Date 2018-04-08 9:04 PM
Nice easy weekend!:laugh:
Parent - By classicsnerd [us] Date 2018-04-09 10:41 AM
wait, so you ran 42 miles on Saturday and a marathon on Sunday? Ok.... trying to process that...

WOW!
Parent - By LDR (100 Mile Stud) [us] Date 2018-04-09 12:49 PM
The RD got back to me: I was awarded 5th place because the other guy crossed the start line several seconds before I did, but I finished immediately behind him, thus it took me less time to go the same number of laps.  I realize this matters in a marathon, but I didn't expect that to be a factor in a timed event.

Mini RR Umstead 100.  Finished in 29:13. This included about a 2 plus hour aid station stop after 50. I had stomach issues and needed to figure it out. Fortunately I had the amazing Old Turtle with me heading into 50. What a wonderful companion in the driving, cold rain which lasted much of the run. I came very close to dropping at 50 and it’s a good thing my other amazing friend Dennis went home for a break. If he was there when I was feeling so crappy I would not have gone back out. Once my stomach turned around I had no excuse and I listened for a while to the runners around me rationalizing their decisions not to go back out and did not want that to be me. So out in the rain I went! After taking such a long aid stop I was panicked and stressed the rest of the run about cutoffs :roll:. That’s always fun :roll:. Of course I had nothing to fear but I ran the last two loops well with my body screaming and my head so tired. One of the tougher ones for me to push through. My time is pretty slow but I am happy about the finish :happy: Everything hurts :laugh:: pbbt:
Parent - By LDR (100 Mile Stud) [us] Date 2018-04-09 8:56 AM
Amazing race, CJ.  Amazing!! :hug::hug:
Parent - By Xtreme Taper Date 2018-04-09 9:10 AM
Oh wow... that's great that you got a finish. Seemed I remember seeing a long delay in one of the updates during my stalking. That is a long break but I guess it helped you get back on track. The weather sounds awful. Cold rain is the worst. Good for you for pushing through all that and securing the buckle and WSQ!  :hug::happy:
Parent - By classicsnerd [us] Date 2018-04-09 9:52 AM
wow, congratulations! That is an amazing achievement! and ugh, driving cold rain - how miserable. You are a stud to stick it out in that!! Way to go!
Parent - By blazer85 [us] Date 2018-04-09 11:00 AM
Congratulations!!!  Way to push through and Make It Happen!!
