Totals so far-109.46-We're still missing a bunch-Don't forget to PM your 26-31st totals

Our December total so far-811.1 We still have a few holes. Great job everyone.

Kate-great time for your 4 mile race. The fireworks sound great. You didn't stop for too long at that champagne stop did you? I think you should have no problem reaching your goals. You are our rabbit.

Geo-I like the nice simple goals. I knew I could count on you to have complete totals of aerobic activity for the year. I say count labor as a marathon. Works for me.

Kanga-I have been taken notes lately because we have gained many new people and have been very chatty. I like the riding the waves gracefully. Great goals for the year. We should meet by Kate's house. I'm 30 minutes east of her.

sallyz- Nicer to dh is a good one. Mine is really very wonderful. I've been here for almost 2 years so I know the oldtimers(kerc, geo, bbm, mamabeth, doctorjen, schatz, loftmama etc.) I've also been taking notes lately. You have such an ambitious goal. We're here to help you along.

loftmama-Another tri would be great. You've come a long way. Happy Runnerversary to you.

Kerc-I like the goal of being in tune with the family. Good luck with that phd. I'm glad 2005 ended with such a good day for you. Hope it is a sign of things to come.

2babybees-pb by 1 minute. all that hard work has paid off. You have been doing such hard work to get there. Glad you got to sleep in. Good luck with the goals. As long as there are no more swiss chocolates you should be well on your way.

Chamamama-Welcome to our group. This is a great place. Good luck with all the new changes in store for 2006. Being more patient is on my list too.

Shantimama-30 minutes by the weekend sounds wonderful. I'm so happy you are feeling better.

Poppy-I hope you get to do the race for the cure this year. I know you were so looking forward to it. I'm so happy that scare is over. Play more sounds like a great idea.

doctorjen-Enjoy the day off. Congrats for getting the first run in so soon. Your goals sound attainable. We'll be here to help you along. Is yoiur son applying to colleges close to home?

saskiasmom-open your heart to inconsistencies and uncontrolables I love it. I've really learned this year how little control I do have over many things in life. We're here to help you get out there.

1jooj-2005 was not a fluke. You have come so very far. You should be so proud. To think you are planning 2 marathons Integrate the positives. I love this one too.

lucenamama-Hope the shin feels better. Enjoy your new treadmill. Respect. Another good one. Good luck with the ttc, the 1/2 and finding the perfect place to live. Don't forget to PM with your mileage for last week too.

grnmtnmama-100 % into everything. I wish you so much luck with all the new adventures.

kpinny-Great goals. Right after you birth that beautiful baby We're waiting. Patiently I might add.

eksmom-Hope dd is doing better. This has happened to ds 2-3 times. I had our family doctor teach me what to do after the first time so I could do it myself. I have done it once or twice on my own. It's kind of weird because they feel the pain in their wrist, not their elbow. Glad you have been running consistently.

cRebRun-Welcome- Any friend of 1jooj is a friend of ours. Glad to have you. You've only been running 1.5 years and have done so much already. You are amazing with your postpartum workouts. Great job. Good luck with the goals. I think 1jooj mentioned you to me. I'm so sorry about your 2 precious babes May they be playing with my little boy Griffin. He was stillborn at 35 4/7 weeks on Sept. 24th due to a knot in his cord. It's nice to know that you can go on and find happiness again. We'll never forget, but it helps to know I will survive.

Po6-40 miles is great. You'll definitely break 2:00. We'll be cheering you on.

Aprildawn-Glad you are back and are joining the competition. Good luck with the weight loss.

BBM-Good luck with the sugar. I know you have been through this before. I hope the monkey is not too annoying. Good luck with all your goals. I'm in for another month. Same 15-20 miles depending on how I feel and how much time I have. Sorry your team was hampered by many sicknesses. A new year and new month.

HBM-A 10 K in March is fine. Just listen to your body. A healthy babe in your arms is my wish for you. You had a great first month of running.

pumpkinseed-I hope you got your run in or you will soon. How is the back?

ND-I've been thinking alot about you. I hope you are getting some runs in. We miss you mama
athansor-Great goals. What kind of dancing do you do again? I hope the perfect job and location come through soon.

Mambeth, moonshine, runningmommy, hollysmom and everyone else

I got out and ran 6 today. Trying to take advantage of dh home and no activities with the kids.

My goals for the week are 3 runs of 3 miles during the week and 5 miles on Saturday.

My goals for 2006 are the same as last year too. My goal is to get pregnant and birth a healthy baby that I get to take home with me. I got the healthy baby part last year. I want to continue to run again during the pregnancy and walk consistenly when it gets too hard to run anymore. My race goal is the Griffin Patrick 5K on September 24th. Thanks guys.

I want to really appreciate all that I have to the fullest. I am truely blessed and I can't take that for granted.

Here's to a great year of family, love, friendship, health, success, and happiness to us all. Oh yeah and some running too

Peace and love,

Patti

Such fun to read everyone's goals for the year and it is making me ponder mine. Something about openingly committing to really make you go for it, huh?

Running:
consistently get out there 3-5 times a week, min 30 min
sign up for my first race ever (maybe then I will feel like a "real" runner??)

other:
get rid of my mummy tummy
lose another 5-10 lbs
make a major dent into our debt
build a private practice

Hmm, so now to make it all happen.

eksmom, DD1 had the nursemaid's elbow too. From DH playing with her jumping up the stairs. It happened at night and I was raised with the let's see how it is in the morning philosophy, so after talking to the ped we did not go to the ER. (it also wasn't clear what it was) It was so sad to see DD laying in bed with her arm laying limp next to her. We took her to see a doc the next day, he fixed it in 2 seconds and she was totally fine. DH to this day feels completely awful about it. Thankfully kids are forgiving.

We had DD's and DH's birthday party today. Was fun, but must mark the end of the end of this holiday eating!

Patti Ann,
My heart goes out to you and your family. Losing Griffin will shape you all forever. It is so recent and your pain is still so acute, I'm very happy that you've been running. I'm sure that it has been wonderful therapy. It still is for me. I swear my Rainey and Grace run with me sometimes, and I often feel very close to them during my runs...I imagine them cheering me on or running next to me and it makes a huge difference. My girls were born December 21, 2001, so we just passed their fourth birthday. I won't lie to you....the pain does not really get 'easier'...just less acute, if that makes any sense. If you ever need someone who has been there, please let me know. My girls lived less than an hour, but will always be a major part of me and my life. And I'd do anything to help someone who has also lost a child.
My newest daughter was born a day before Griffin...on the 23rd.

Happy New Year Runnin' Vixens!


I ran twice last week and am finally getting to a better place emotionally and physically. I hope to get in a few runs this week if all the germs cooperate. Big little dingo is sick once again tonight and it looks like it is going to be a bad one. We will see how it plays out. I need to get in a few miles before my belly and butt expand beyond a reasonable point

Take care, ND
post #46 of 814
No run yesterday dh is sick and the timing just didn't work out. Today for sure.

bbm - I am trying to stop sugar too. I had given it up for most of last year but it got me during December big time. I have been weaning myself bit by bit since the Christmas chocolate binge but I think it is now time to quit cold turkey. Thanks for the reminder that the firt 48 hours are the hardest. Once it is out of my system I am fine without it and just eat a small square of dark chocolate each PMS day and I am fine. I need to make some black bean soup today - I find snacking on something spicy and with lots of protein helps me get through the sugar cravings.

kerc - good luck on getting the PhD done. Wow!

doctorjen - hope you get through the year okay. I know some moms on the other side of their children growing up and leaving home and they seem okay but I just can't imagine it.

patti ann - I hope this will be a gentle and joyful year for your family.

naughtydingo - glad to hear you are feeling better. The daylight is getting longer each day now, I hope taht helps too. I often think of you on my runs.

crebRun - welcome aboard! It is great to have you join us.

moonshine - wow - 2 birthdays - you sure end the holiday season with a bang!

geofizz - seeing how much exercise you did last year - and gave birth - is inspiring. Way to go!

chamamama - welcome!

athansor - good luck on all of the changes this year. A year ago we had just bought this house and were trying to sell our old one in our old town. dh had just started a new job. It was a huge transition for us but we made it. The reasons we had to move and job change were painful ones but we survived it all and it feels great to get to the other side of it all - hope that's where you are this time next year.

2babybees - hope you had a good sleep last night!

homebirthmommy - I forget - when is your baby due? A 10 K at any point during pregnancy impresses me!

aprildawn - good luck meeting your goals - it will happen!

pof6 - good luck on doing the half







I am not sure of my goals for the year yet. I'll give it a try though -

- I would like to run 4-6 times every week and do a 10K in the spring. If I can do more than that, great, but the main thing is to run as often as I can.

- Doing some yoga/pilates every day too is on my list.

- I have a 3 year BA (I live in Ontario - last province to drop grade 13 so 3 year degrees were an option when I went to university) which seemed fine at the time, but in order to get into a master's program I have to upgrade to a 4 year degree. I would like to start on that this year, doing the courses by correspondence. I probably won't start 'til the fall when all three kiddos will be in school 5 days a week.

- finish the spriritual director training program I started last year. I have no idea how I will use it but I hope it will enhance the work I do later.

- do some art and some writing every day - MDC posts won't count

- clean out my basement. Moving my mother into a nursing home a few weeks after moving into a house half the size of our old one has made for quite the mess down there. Ugh.

- I have some pretty important personal stuff to work on. I hope to be on the other side of it by the end of 2006. Running helps me find the courage and energy to do it. I have a feeling that working through this stuff will free up a ton of energy for running and a zillion other things I can't even imagine yet!

Okay, I may have missed people so let me know...

But people interested in the running "competition" so far:
Kpinny
HBM
2babybees
doctorjen
CRebRun
Patti Ann
Babybugmama

Depending on if everyone is still interested or not, do you just want to keep the same teams? And if so, I'm snagging CRebRun - I'm still sick so I figure my mileage dropped from 25 to more like 10-15. Not to mention the rest of us ailing mommies.

gotta go, dd wants breakfast.
post #48 of 814
Add eksmom to that list

And our totals so far: 507.34

Still waiting on:

Shanti
Sally
kpinny
poppy
ND
Geo
Kangamitroo
Po6

Thanks for sharing that. It's really beautiful. I can tell you are going to be an inspiration around here in more ways than just running.
post #50 of 814
BBM -- get me in on the competition too. how about 10 mi/week running to start? if you count the warm up and cool down walking it's more like 12.
post #51 of 814
Yeah, she's a pretty nice friend, that cRebRun girl... And she inspired me to try running, so how cool is that?

I'm in for the contest. 20-25 mpw.

And let's hope that December illness thing is gone for good. Too much puking going on on the board.
post #52 of 814
Can't write much now, need to pick up ds from K but please count me in on the team!! I'm shooting for staying at 30 miles a week, although I would like to slowly increase this month and add some speed work.

Check back later, HUGS!!
post #53 of 814
I am in for another month. I am aiming for 15 miles per week, combination of running and walking.
post #54 of 814
Okay I am admitting to myself that maybe I do need a day off of running after that race on New Year's Eve. I started my run today with wonderful intentions but there was nothing left. So after about a mile I simply stopped and walked back home. I might not even run tomorrow. I've got the big race on Sunday and I need to build my stores back up. I have been so determined altely but I am taking PO6's words of rest to heart. Just have make sure I do get back out there by Weds. I am not good with days off....
post #55 of 814
2babybees-I'm taking today off too. It's yucky outside and I'm so exhausted right now. Let's both enjoy our day of rest.
post #56 of 814
Well, I have had 2 days off getting ready for our party yesterday, so I am about to head out the door. DH is working tomorrow through Saturday, so unless I find a sitter, I am not going to be getting out all week. Hmmm, must work that one out because that would not be a good thing!
post #57 of 814
Hi everyone!

I spent 2 weeks in MI for Christmas vacation, and it was wonderful. Now I want to get back on the running train.

Goals for this week: Run 3 times
Goals for 2006: Run at least 3 races
post #58 of 814
Count me in for the competition this month - who knows, I may actually contibute something to my team this time!

Ran/walked 3 miles this morning. My chest hurt a lot as I got started so I walked a fair bit at the beginning, but once I got thoroughly warmed up I was able to run more. Every time I thought about how well I was running a month and a half ago I tried to think instead about how great it is that I am starting up again and how quickly I will improve over this week and next. No sense in comparing myself to what I was doing pre-sicky time. Actually, maybe it will be helpful. If I was able to do what I was before while I had untreated asthma and anemia, imagine what I'll be able to when I am healthy Oxygen is such a helpful thing to have getting into your system.

dh has spent the day so far sleeping on the couch and I think it is safe to say he will spend the entire day there. I really want to be the dad the next time I get sick.........

The kids are a bit but don't want to go outside. I may have to force them out for a little while. I don't understand why they have this aversion to outside. Maybe I should make it a little more boring around here.

Putting away our Christmas decorations today. The kids don't go back to school for anotehr week, but it is time.
post #59 of 814
Good afternoon everyone!

I just spent some time thinking about my goals for 2006, and here they are:

Lose 10 more lbs. in the next few months.
Train for half-marathon (race is 4/15).
TTC starting at the beginning of June (that's a lot closer than I realized!).
If/when I'm pregnant, keep running and then walking as long as possible.

BTW, can we do a roll-call on the half-marathoners again? I know there were a bunch of us...

Thanks to everyone who shared their experiences w/ kids and nursemaid's elbow. DD still won't use her arm. We think it's mostly in her head, but DH is taking her to the ped in a half hour since he's still off work today and tomorrow would be hard for either of us to take her. If there's really nothing wrong with her physically, we have to figure out how to help her get over it mentally! She's a smart, sensitive kid and I think the whole thing just really made an impact on her.

2babybees - glad you're giving yourself the gift of rest! Don't worry, we'll be here to see that you don't extend your break. You are a tough mama.

moonshine - hope you find a way to get out there this week.

Good luck to those of you who are cutting out sugar. I'm definitely looking to cut back, but I am allowing myself to help eat up homemade goodies that can't be frozen. Shanti, I like your idea of a little dark chocolate on PMS days...

Geo - I love your calculations on 2005 activity. I'd definitely count labor.

Patti - thinking of you and Griffin, and wishing you well on your goals for 2006. Thanks also for the always-great personals.

BBM - I think it would work to keep the same teams... I'm still looking at about 20 mpw for January. I am crossing my fingers that all of us dingos now have excellent immunities to see us through the rest of winter!

Hello to everyone else... hope you are all having a wonderful day!
post #60 of 814
BBM - count me in! i was not giving you any totals for walking which i was doing regularly, only running. but still, due to a real hectic work schedule ahead of me in january, i think i will only manage 10 mi/week tops. if we get crebrun maybe it will make up for my low mileage!

going to get out there and run today despite the flooding everywhere, oy vey.
