Mornin' all!!<br><br>
Stuck at work all night. <img alt="icon_study.gif" src=""> Such is the life of a schlub (sp?) who is going on vacation. Yep. You heard me. Tuesday - at the crack of dawn - we are catching a flight to Cabo. Of course, they are predicting clouds and isolated T-storms for the first 3 days we are there. too bad. I am having fun, and no one is stopping me.<br><br>
While the scanner was doing its thing (I am taking a couple of files with me - on a flash drive), I was able to catch up on a few of the threads. You folks are a chatty crowd these days.<br><br>
Hope all your races went well this weekend. I will follow the thread for a little while - assuming there are replies at this GAWDAWFUL time of day, then will try to check in again tonite.<br><br>
Be well!!

good morning, thread.
If the runner is female, it's the legs. That may not be the answer you were looking for, but it's the honest one, anyway.<br><br>
If it's a guy, I notice his speed, I guess.
When all of you say you notice "stride"...what <b>about</b> the stride are you noticing?
I had no idea I was potentially being analyzed on this analyze me:
<ul><li>I couldn't ever for the life of me get my heels very high, but I wasn't a shuffler, either.</li>
<li>Mid-foot strike. This was intentional because it seemed to reduce my shin pain when I was starting out, and it felt comfortable after that.</li>
<li>No crazy legs.</li>
<li>Higher turnover seemed to be more comfortable than a too-stretched out stride for me.</li>
<li>Toward the end, I was a mid-packer-ish mid-to-high 8-minutes per mile for a 5k or 5 miler.</li>
<li>And all of the above can be thrown out the window if I was kicking at the end of a race. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""></li>
What conclusion would you have come to about me?
Well then, sadly, it would matter...<br><br><img alt="neutral.gif" src="">
I'll take those off your hands....<br><br><br>
Are non-runners invited?
pass the M&M ones first...unless something there has coconut in it...mmmm...coconut...<br><br><br><br>
I can do that, I think. <img alt="hello2.gif" src="">

Ahem...Boston...(I've got nothin...but it's a cool city) <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><br><br> as a charity runner! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
Cool. Let's figure something out as it gets closer...<br><br><br><br><b>McT</b> - I don't see a beer thread for week 2 I missing it...or are you slacking? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
