Dingos Trotting after Turkeys...November Running Mamas Thread

Here's the new thread!

post #2 of 615
Today's FM: Running up and down stairs in a panic as I flooded the upstairs bath/laundry, which became a flooded kitchen. Took out ceiling tiles (I hate them, but am thankful for them) and the damage looks not too devastating. I'm sure dh will be so happy with me. Is this a sign, you guys?

I skiied this morning!

My son has apparently been too busy having fun at grandma's house to be bothered talking to me. But I had a lovely conversation with MIL, at least.

I saw Nick's "New Thread" post on the Oct thread and I couldn't figure out for several moments why on earth we should have a new thread.

So this is the Sept thread, right?

Right?



I do seem to be successfully resurrecting a running group for myself. Lovely run this morning, and thankfully I was well dressed for the 29F.

hi. I'm kristin. I'm still adjusting to my child needing to spend time with me when I get home from work but not actually happy about riding in the jogger . someday....
post #9 of 615


I'm setting out winterish gear for the morning.

ETA I think I've forgotten how to dress w/o overdressing. If I wear a single layer under the coat I wear when it really is cold Ithink I can always unzip it using my reflective vest to keep it on. I think I ran in shorts and a tank top last week?
post #10 of 615
New here! I'm back into running as of two weeks ago, after recovering from a broken toe. My kids didn't have school today, so I didn't get out for my morning run. I'm hoping to get to the gym tonight to run on the treadmill, just so I don't lose my schedule or my momentum, but DH is late getting home from work. Eek! I'm hoping to better my 5k time this month---as of Friday it was 35:10.
post #11 of 615
yay - new thread!

I'm sick *boo* as we were rained and SNOWED on during trick or treating with the kids... oh joy. Totally not even close to being ready for winter around here How does everyone else deal with the super cold winter running outdoors?

I am getting excited about seeing the family (in-laws) this weekend for my SILs 30th birthday it's 80s theme!!
post #12 of 615


Gah, I hear you Geo! How did it get to be November!!!!!!!! I was so out of the loop last month and I missed you women. I will have to start afresh this month.

Mommajb, the weather is crazy! last week it was 70 and I was biking and running in shorts and this morning, well, brr. I'm heading out in half an hour and I really need to get some new winter kit.

Welcome Simplehome

I'm trying to grade midterms while being painfully aware that I have a paper to write for a conference in two weeks. I'm only going to the conference so I can go to SF and now I am sort of wishing I was staying home and not having to write it

so... the other thing, as some of you know from FB, is that next year I will either sign up for a half-ironman (it's in September) or I will have a baby! Whichever comes first... Someone is helping me put together a schedule for training as I don't know what I'm doing, and day one of training was yesterday! I''m scared!

Okay, one more paper and I'm going for a run!
post #13 of 615
A new thread! Yay!!!

zub ~ which half-ironman are you thinking of doing? I really want to do one next summer too, but I can't decide which race. At least if you get pregnant during training, you'll be in great shape for pregnancy and delivery, right !

Kris ~ for me, cold weather running musts include smartwool winter socks, long underwear under my loose tights, lots of lighweight layers, running gloves with removable outers, and my beloved hot pink balaclava . Of course, that's for when it's really cold (ie. below 15 or so). Right now, just gloves, tights, and an extra layer.

Welcome simplehome!

Halloween candy has been my downfall this week. Damn you, fun size Snickers! I'm headed to the Y this morning for Power Pump and then to my polling place to exercise my right to vote .

Jaygee, you should join me! It's the pumpkinman half in South Berwick, ME. I did the sprint this year and it's very well done. I have a couple of friends who have done it and they say good things about it.. Also, there is an aquabike if my legs don't behave running

Ooooh! When is it? I could even stay at my parent's house in Portsmouth or my sister's in Dover, NH! Hmmmmm.... and an aquabike you say? If my leg is still weird, I could do that.... Now you've got my wheels turning .

When are you going?

I'll be there mid-December, so I'll probably miss you.

Poppy - hear that? Maybe BART in for dinner again? I think I'll be staying in SF this time, with maybe a few more evenings free. Maybe meet on a day in Berkeley (not yet scheduled), but the meeting will probably just make me sour.

Post-conference fog here...

I need to run. That is all.
post #18 of 615
FMR: 6 dark miles. I am not sure if I overdressed or not this morning. I was prepared for about 10 degrees cooler than it turned out to be and I was hot but I survived.

The kids ate all the good Halloween candy already so I am good there.

Ds1's basketball practice was in a gym I hadn't heard of before. In a town as small as this that is saying something. Anyway, I took him and my very vague directions and started circling town in progressively smaller circles. I knew I was close but we still couldn't identify which building we were looking for. As I was sitting in ther ointersenction of two alleys I suddenly saw a truck with a front plate from his school. "Quick! Jump out and ask them where it is!" Then we saw two boys get out and run between two buildings so I said, "Just follow them!" It was comical. There I sat in an alley in a part of town we had decided was a bit too rough for us to live in and I am telling my teenage son to just run follow those boys down an alley and between building into another building that looked all boarded up. He found practice and said it was a very nice basketball gym. Ah, Indiana. I took dh back with me to pick him up so he would know where to pick him up today.

Just another day here with the same old stuff. It is rather nice though you'd think I'd be better at it all by now.

Subbing.

Zub - I spent a few happy summers doing summerstock in Berwick!

Okay, back to work.
post #20 of 615
I am so happy that it's cooler out. I feel like running again (finally!).

I also love Smartwool socks, and Under Armour baselayer clothing. I have other things, but my UA has held up so well. I wear it a lot (from October to April) and the set I bought 4 years ago is still going strong.

Abagale is sick today, and I have a ton of soap to make. I am shooting for a run tonight when DH gets home.
