<p>Hoping the a$$hats of the world don't make <span style="text-decoration:underline;">this</span> 9/11 memorable.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's an absolutely gorgeous day here for a LR......... 12°C when I started and 17°C when I was done, no wind.  12 slow, hilly, dirt-road miles in between.  I'd planned to meet the LRS group at their 10K point and run north with them until they headed back, but apparently they decided to do a less hilly route (wimps!) and our paths crossed only momentarily at my 1.5 mile point.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm getting a bit worried about my knee.  Usually I feel it a bit at the beginning, but both this run and last Sunday I felt the ache in it through the entire run.... sore on the lower inside of the kneecap.  It doesn't hurt on stairs and mostly bothers me when I try to sleep.  Usually any knee pain I get goes away if I do some quad strengthening, but this time that's not helping.  Maybe it's time to see my PT.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Cherish the day, everyone!</p>
<p>You're on the right side of the sod!!</p>

<p>Good morning.  1 mile run around a small portion of the condo, and then an hour of yoga.  It was emotionally painful.  I couldn't stop thinking of my cousin, who lost his life 9 years ago today while trying to rescue others in the Islamic terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers.  RIP, my hero cousin, FF Christopher Pickford, Engine Co. 201.</p>

<p>Hope that knee pain eases up Heme.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>5K race for me.  No expectations; just wanted to do the work, but it turned out better than I thought.  24:33, or 7:55's and I won my AG.  It was a very difficult day weather-wise, but the course was fair I thought.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This wrapped up another 50 mile week and today is supposed to set up a 20 miler tomorrow if I can do it.  Tomorrow I am 3 weeks away from my big race and then I can start easing back.  Spareribs</p>

<p>Nice racing Ribs.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>An incredible morning for racing here.  With tons of races to choose from, I decided to do a 5 mile race nearby that I had never run before.  The town's whole cross country team ran this race which is unusual since it is in the middle of their season.  Their boys just beat my towns team at an invite last week.   After a 2 mile warmup and some strides I was ready to go.  I had downloaded some of my favorite tunes to my shuffle so I turned it on and waited for the starting horn. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>After the initial sprint, I was in 15th place when we made the first turn.  I stayed steady the first mile getting warmed up and came through in 6:15.  The second mile was a little faster as I passed some runners and got there in 12:20.  Right after that, we made a right turn and went up a steep hill.  A runner who I had caught up with, surged up the hill and got a few seconds back ahead of me.  I spent the whole mile trying to catch him and got to 3 miles in 18:42.  Once I caught him a little after 3, I picked up the pace to see if he would go ahead again but he didn't.  I went through 4 miles in 24:54.  The last mile had a couple steep hills that I held my place on and finished in 30:45.  I was first AG and maybe 9th overall but I didn't see the results.  Ran 3/4 mile back to my car for 8 total for the day.   That was my fastest 5 mile this year as the others were all hot and humid, and I was only 2 seconds off my best time as a master.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The big game (Ohio State/Miami) is later this afternoon so I may sneak away from work for a little bit if the game is close.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Forgot to add my feet are feeling much better though not 100%.  I may try to start running once a week besides the racing and see how that goes.  If not, I will just keep showing up at races and do them.</p>

<p>Way to go Ribs! No ifs about it. You can do that 20 tomorrow. Nice strong running for you.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It wouldn't be an official weekend without a Rip race. Nice speed and results!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>18.4 birthday miles for me at 8:00 am at 8:10 pace with miles 12-18 in 42:54. One year older and faster---who needs wiser?  Chocolate silken tofu pie tonight to celebrate the 30th anniversary of my 16th birthday. A day of reflection on many levels.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The start of today was spectacular as balloons from a local festival floated over our house. I stood outside with my coffee cup and just gazed---so close I could see the folks waving.</p>

<h2><span style="color:#9966ff;">Happy 16th Birthday CNY !!!</span></h2>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="color:#000000;">I forgot to mention how well you did at New Haven!!!  You are correct - faster!  I'm still amazed at your monthly mileage for August!</span></p>

<p><span style="font-size:22px;"><span style="color:#dda0dd;"><strong>Happy Birthda</strong></span><span style="color:#dda0dd;">y</span> CNYrunner, enjoy your day!</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-size:14px;">Great racing for ripvanracer!. 1AG in such a tough field is something to be proud of.</span></p>
<p>Ribs, ohh wiseone you are looking good. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/hello2.gif" title=""> Congrats on your 1AG placement today. Another 50 mile week under your belt. Good luck on your last LR before your marathon. What is your plan for this last 20 miler? Just curious to see.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I guess I would disagree with Susan. I would say...<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;line-height:18px;color:rgb(24,24,24);">Never forget, <span style="text-decoration:line-through;">and NEVER FORGIVE </span></span>but I would change the second part of the phrase... forgiving is a good thing for the human soul.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am home along for the next 4 days, so I am planning to really enjoy my "me-time". I have a 20 miler planned for this weekend, I have no idea when I will run it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Enjoy your day!</p>

<p>4 miles running and 7 hours of volunteering at my son's XC Invitational meet. Setting up the crowd control, sorting out the finishers in the chute, breaking down the crowd control.  My legs feel like I ran 20.  And I've never run 20.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Not quite as good as yesterday. </p>

<p>Happy Birthday CNY!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Congrats on your AG win, Ribs!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nancy, I second your opinion on forgiveness. I was tempted to say the same thing, and probably wouldn't have had no one else mentioned it first. One can never really move past hurts and wrongs unless they can come to a point of forgiveness.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I ran a 5K also this morning. Nothing spectacular or noteworthy really . . . unless you consider the tiny amount of material that Jenn Shelton wore in the 10K. She looked like she hadn't slept last night and just showed up at the race - but that's Jenn. Johnny will be disappointed he decided not to come out for this one.</p>

<p>As I recall, Jenn threw up in the hotel the night before thy went to Mexico in <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Born to Run</span>.  Is that right?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Go Seminoles! Just kidding.  OU has a tough game ahead.</p>

<p>yeah, you remember correctly Opie. She's quite the partier - and she looked it this a.m. Hair all ratty and disheveled - like it hasn't seen a comb in awhile. She certainly ran this one fast - a hilly 10K in 38:11, 1st female.  I was talking to her a bit before the race because she is on the roster for next wknd's 100 miler that I'm volunteering at, but she said she's not going to run it. She changed her mind and doesn't feel like running another 100 miler right now. So, she said she's going down to Mammoth to run a 50K at 11,000 elev . . . just for fun.  Isn't that everybody's idea of fun though? <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>

<p>Great race, Rip.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Happy Birthday, CNY!  That was a fine LR today!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Susan, the things you say sometimes...  Let it go or it'll poison your soul.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good attitude, Heme.  I hope your knee feels better soon.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>18 holes for me today.  It was a good walk spoiled....</p>

<p>We're in Northern Michigan trying to buy a retirement summer home.  The seller (a Bank, auction company, etc.) is all messed up and we've been trying to do this for a month or more.  Finally we seem to have someone who can make something happen.  I'm still not getting overly excited - these foreclosure thingies fall through all the time, but optimistic at least, now that we're up here and seeing things happen.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I ran a gloriously cool and pleasant 21 miler this morning.  I thought about extending it to 22 but decided 21 was enough.  Nice and easy to start out, then 9 miles at MP, with the last mile at Tempo pace.</p>

<p>The leg held up nicely and feels okay after.  21 miles 3:06 overall pace of 8:53.  I tried to pretend I was running in Minnesota the last few miles.  One more week of hard work and then it's all downhill.</p>

<p>I'm very surprised that people feel it's a good thing to forgive those who murdered 3000 innocent people.  Perhaps if you had walked a mile in my family's shoes you wouldn't think that either.</p>
<p>I guess this isn't the forum for me.</p>
