<p>Morning! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Wow....you guys really hit it out of the park this weekend.  I am so thrilled for everyone!  Great job peeps! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Me?  I walked yesterday for about 45 mins.  Meh.  Yoga tonight, which I *badly* need.  That will feel great...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Other than that?  Not much here.  Anyone?  Bueller?  <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//biggrin.gif"></p>

<p>G'morning folks.  10.25 beeeeeeautiful miles yesterday.  It was cool enough to wear my arm warmers and liner gloves.  Lublublubbed it!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Core is done for the day.  Weights + spinning + pullups/drop downs are still on the menu.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Grats again on the hard work this weekend guys!</p>

<p>Fitness for me today? Painting. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif" title="">   And probably some core stuff and a walk with Gus while the rest of the trim dries so after I can start trimming in the walls. </p>

<p>Apologies in advance, as I'm sure my feeble brain will forget someone...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Congrats to Big G and Bob for the PRs!  Moonie for the excellent pacing!  RFTL for a possible BQ!!!  KP, Crane, Brandy, Litch, Maria, Missy, Maureen, and Jill for awesome races!   Gosh, I hope I didn't forget anyone!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Great efforts all around.  Happy for all of you!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>As for me, I had a nice tempo 4 miler on Saturday and a great 8 miler yesterday.  And an incredibly painful sports massage in between.  My hamstrings and inner thighs are BRUISED to all hell.  I know the pain will be worth it in another couple of days, but egad.  I am perched on my chair because I can't sit normally and have my legs touch the seat.  It's that bad. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Happy Monday, all.</p>

<p>Yes, big kudos again to all of our racers!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Theia</strong> - good lord that is awful.  Another reason I don't like massages....</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I had a great yogalates class.  My balance is terrible, but I'm getting there.  My hammies really appreciated the stretching too.  Rest day for me - although I'll do core work and probably a few laps with GOTR tonight.  I am going to try to amp up the miles a bit this week to make up for my 15 miles last week.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>

<p>Gack!  I forgot to congratulate Mindi!!!  Sorry, sweetie. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I know the massage will be worth it.  The first time this woman massaged me was very similar.... but 5 days later I got a 5 minute HM PR.  <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif" style="width:1px;height:1px;">  So I cry and wimper and hold onto the sides of the table for an hour plus and know that she's doing my muscles a world of good. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Oh!  One noteworthy thing about yesterday's long run.  Pretty much all of my long runs incorporate a MONSTER hill.  I go down on the way out and come back up 5-10 miles later on my way back, so my paces are always off for the second half of the run.  Yesterday my running partner and I NEGATIVE SPLIT that bitch!  Ahhh yeah.  (Going down actually felt worse because my hamstrings were so sore, and the impact of running down a steep long hill just about killed them.)</p>

<p>Grr. Tried to post a whole long list of congrats last night and my computer/internet had other plans.  In class now and no time to write, so my apologies for the blanket congrats -- you guys had an awesome weekend of racing!  Jealous! </p>

<p>Morning. Great weekend of running around here. It was a blast being a part of the Twin Cities Marathon Weekend. Lots of great performances, PRs, and BQs. Just a great weekend of good friends, good running, and good beer. Congrats to everyone on some great running!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Bob got in Friday and we did a quick lap around the lake, then to the Twins game. Saturday, got up and went to the TC 5k. Decent run for me, fast than last year and a top 25 finish. I tried to hang with the lead girl, but wasn't happening.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sunday (I ran without a chip) I was pacing a friend of mine to her BQ. Went 23 miles at about 8:15 pace. Good day and the legs felt great.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The results on the TCM site aren't working. Here's another link: <a href="http://www.marathonguide.com/results/browse.cfm?MIDD=58101003" target="_blank">http://www.marathonguide.com/results/browse.cfm?MIDD=58101003</a></p>

<p>morning</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am just chilling here on a day off from work.  I'll run in a wee bit</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Yesterday went pretty dang good for me.  I felt comfortable mechanically for most of the race with only 2 real issues, a side stitch at about 4.5 and my body not liking the water at the water stop at 8 miles.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The weather however was PERFECT for me and I ran just what I wanted to.  I let the garmin lap and from the get go was about .1 over the mile markers.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>We got to the dome later than I feel comfortable with and I had to pee 20 min before the start (which for the first wave was at 7:09)  I was in the second wave and got out of the porta john at 7:09.  I was able to walk into the starting area with 2 min to spare!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Mile 1: 8:36</p>
<p>Mile 2: 8:22</p>
<p>Mile 3: 9:05 (Franklin Street Hill and bridge...took it easy...too early in the race to charge up a hill)</p>
<p>Mile 4: 8:37</p>
<p>Mile 5: 8:51 (more hills)</p>
<p>Mile 6: 9:02 (St THomas Hill)</p>
<p>Mile 7: 8:58 (climbing Summit)</p>
<p>Mile 8: 8:34</p>
<p>Mile 9: 8:50 (oye, close to throwing up - backed off a wee bit to gain some composure for the last mile)</p>
<p>Mile 10: 8:19</p>
<p>extra 0.1: 49 seconds</p>
<p> </p>

<p>And thus begins the work week from hell.  Supplier dinners Tues, Wed and Thurs, all day mtgs with suit & tie on, no idea when I'll find time to run...I'm not a happy camper for the next 5 days!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>That said - a good weekend in MSP - great weather, a free beer with Brandy after the race, good run, etc.  Congrats to the other runners - sounds like some good results out there (BQ's and PR's!)</p>

<p>Morning Gang -</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Big shout out to all the racers this weekend.  <strong>Missy</strong> - you are amazing getting out there for a 5k so soon after baby arrived!  Woot!  <strong>Litch</strong> - fabulous HM!!!  <strong>Jill</strong>, nice HM PR, even if it sounds like the official results are screwed up.  <strong>Mindi</strong> - nice 5ks.  It is so fun to see you enjoy racing and with your son too!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>TCM racers were awesome!  <strong>Pacer,</strong> right on the money as usual.  <strong>Brandy</strong> ROCKING her 10 mile!  You are getting super fast, girl!  <strong>Crane</strong> finishing her marathon without walking at all - woot!!  Bob smashing his PR with a speedy 3:44:xx!  <strong>Big G</strong> getting a huge PR and <strong>Moonie</strong> assisting with the pacing!  And <strong>KP</strong> kicking butt (and planning on kicking some more in two weeks!).  And Baggs pacing his friend to a super speedy BQ for her! What a great day for everyone!  It was so much fun.  Yesterday was what marathoning is all about.  I love it!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Race report is up on my blog:  <a href="http://runninfromthelaw.wordpress.com/" target="_blank">http://runninfromthelaw.wordpress.com/</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm actually not too sore at all.  A little stiff, but no major aches and pains.  Nothing injured.  Yeah!</p>

<p>Soooooo proud of all this past weekend's racers!!!!  You are doing an unbelievable job and keeping the motivation levels HIGH!  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Today I'm resting from running and hitting the yoga studio - have all sorts of body parts that need stretching and strengthening. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Mindi</strong> - what I found to help my balance most is to use a stationary object as my complete visual focus.  Burn a whole in whatever it is with your vision, look that intensely.  <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//biggrin.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>That a girl, <strong>Alexis</strong>!</p>

Howdy, guys. As y'all can tell, lots of fun was had here in Minnesota this weekend. I'll write up a Race Report (with the requisite BobCam shots) after I get home. For now, I'm at MSP waiting for my flight, which is delayed. Hooray.<br><br>
It was great to see everyone, and as Moonie said, B & B were awesome hosts. TCM was a beautiful course and a fun race to run. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an October marathon in the coming years.<br><br>
I feel pretty good now. Not very sore at all. I might even "run" a couple miles after I get home.<br><br>
Big congrats to all the runners this weekend, in MN and elsewhere. See y'all again after I'm back in NJ...

<p>afternoon peeps. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>my legs are really sore today, so apparently as poor as my effort was yesterday, I was putting in some effort.  I don't think I'll check my race results...I don't really need to know how badly I finished.  All up from here, right? <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//wink.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Congrats again to everyone.</p>

<br><br><p>Look carefully in the boBCam shots around mile 10 and see if you can spot me.  When you inched ahead of me I could see you taking bobcam shots and I was about 5 feet behind you and waving and trying to get in them in the background.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif" title=""></p>
