Thread Starter 
Welcome to Spring. We are a group of walkers, woggers, joggers, runners, (skiers, swimmers, triathletes, yoginis and more) who are here for inspiration, motivation, commiseration ... you get the idea. Newbies come on in.

Quick post, even RR: I bought a new pair of running shoes on Monday, because I was feeling ready to start running again (pelvic floor doing better). Plus, I havent bought a new pair in, get this, 3 YEARS! Then Dh got sick and I lost my workouts for the week, so today, ta da, I ran 8 miles!! Wooottt. I just mapped it. I think I did somewhere in the 9 minute mile range, but it was hard to tell because I forgot to look at my watch when I started, and then I stopped for a pee break So, my first official run in ... 6 mos? With my new shoes, and my birthday in a week,and now I started the thread for the first time ever

Have a glorious day everyone!

Oh yeah, KOMBUCHA:
If anyone wants some scoby (gmm ?), pm me your address. Im sending it out monday overnight... I think I have enough for 2-3 people this round

subbing this month also. I did C25k in 2007 (but I only got through week 6, even though we "ran" almost every week). IN Jan, I joined teh gym. I've been doing 30-60 min of cardio (mostly on teh elliptical) 6 days a week. I've done some running on the treadmill, and my old C25K buddy and I may do a 5K at the end or March.

Subbing! Some one tell me to stop knitting and get my butt out the door for a run. But AF finally arrived (4 days late!) and I'm seriously crampy.
post #13 of 1077
Monica - the run will help with cramps. you'll forget about them for a little while at least.

very psyched! we're going up saturday morning, and staying through tuesday.

rr - ran 7 at pace this afternoon in ny - we're at my parents' this weekend again. i think being up here is good for the training since their neighborhood is SO hilly!

I got my butt out the door and ran 3 miles. Thanks, Mandy. I just barely beat the storm! Now I need to lift weights for back, then maybe I can some more.

Hey mamas!

CathToria, girl, you are EVERYWHERE! welcome to the Dingoes! the Atl list is growing, y'all.....

Monikita, thanks for the info about the map. I went to the Christine Kane site and it is so funny, I saw her in a bookstore about 10 years ago playing and singing from her first album and bought it on the spot! she's amazing.

Eks, I have a race next weekend, March 8 link here. thanks!

so ds puked last night, meaning it is indeed a virus. but this time....I have drugs at least for myself. but both of them have been totally fine during the day, so whatever. I saw HBM today and the family is recovering...not quite out of the woods but doing better. Keep the positive vibes coming.

take care mamas, happy March!

Subbing...

Concussion symptoms seem to have cleared up, but I've got a lovely case of whiplash. : Hopefully it's better tomorrow, or I'll be running 7 miles without moving my head! (through the snow, because wouldn't you know it's 72 right now, but here comes the cold front...)

And way late, but hope your race went well, Lisa!!!!


ETA: Holy crap, saskiasmom! Your first run was 8 miles at 9 minute pace?!?!! I have yet to hit 8, and I can barely run 1 mile at that pace! And I don't have a newborn! : WTG!
