Morning peeps<br><br>
picture perfect day in the deer stand. Calm and about 28*. All I need is some deer...<br><br>
I did my 21 yesterday, but it was tuff. I was wanting to quit around mile 15, I had to dig deep to finish. My feet were killing me. Time for new shoes? Looks like I only got 400 miles in them...?

<p>BBS--there's just something wrong about surfing the 'net while sitting in a deer stand...  "Only" 400miles on your shoes?!  I'm lucky to get more than about 250.  GET NEW SHOES!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Yet another sick day.  I actually had to call in sick today.  Cough got pretty bad yesterday so I started taking some stuff that has codeine in it.  OY!!!  I'm not coughing but I'm too loopy to drive!  Work said they didn't what my germs anyway.</p>

Mom- yea, this modern technology helps me sit a little longer in the deer stand. I run my long runs in mizuno wave riders, which are pretty cushiony, I figured I'd be able to get 500+ out of them, at least that's what the running store said. Get well soon

<p>Wow...sleepy or busy group this morning. I'm betting the latter.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BBS - nice run yesterday...400 miles is definitely time to start thinking about some new shoes. I start breaking in a new pair once I hit 350 or so. By the time the old ones hit 400, the new kicks are ready to take over.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>4bm - almost missed your post, keep getting better, you'll be back out there soon.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hopefully RA is kicking it out in Indy right now.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>As for me, I'm about to head out for a little 2-3 mile shakeout run since I didn't get to do anything yesterday -- taper or not I need to do something as I'm definitely tight after sitting on that bus. Then it's off to the expo w/ DW, and hopefully after that we'll meet up with my aunt (who lives in the West Village) for some lunch. After that, nothing but chillin' the rest of the day. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Happy running all.</p>

Good morning! I finished my 3rd and final run in the relay this morning at 7:45. So 19 miles total for yesterday and today. I am sleepy and stinky. We're waiting on the other team members to complete the final 30+ miles.

<p>Good morning!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Rest day for me. Not sure if I tweaked my left calf yesterday during my run. Something happened, so I'm being careful.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Great job <strong>jebba</strong>!! Can't wait to hear more about the relay.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good luck tomorrow <strong>Hawk</strong>!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Welcome home <strong>vash</strong>.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>BBS</strong>, I retire my shoes at 400 miles for regular runs but bring them back out from time to time for recovery runs. Not consistently though. In previous brands I only ever got 300 miles out of mine.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hope you feel better soon <strong>4bm</strong>.</p>

<p>Well, I'm back from the "run before the run." I ended up going a little more than planned, about 5, but it was the probably the easiest 5 I've ever done. I started from Rockefeller Center and then headed up 6th Avenue to Central Park -- of course. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Once I got there I couldn't resist the chance to run along the actual marathon course a bit; I joined the marathon route at Mile 25, then ran to Mile 24 before turning it around. On the way back I picked it up to about HM pace for 3 minutes, then it was back to a nice easy jog pace. Felt much better by the end, no more bus legs. Cool, crisp day out, low/mid 40s and windy; it's actually supposed to be a little calmer tomorrow.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Time to shower and grab a shuttle to the expo.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm so ready. Can't wait to get it on.</p>

<p>3:05?  I wish.  Nope the results are exactly 1 minute fast as the race started at 8am rather than the "typical" 8:01.  Yeah, it's dumb.  I actually ran <strong>3:06:26</strong> but if they want to give me 3:05:26, I'm not complaining.  It says I was 12th in my division and 107 OA.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This is one of, if not the, best race performances of my short running career.  Not only is my time a PR by 2:48 but I ran a 2:42 negative split (1:34:34 / 1:31:52) with the last 10k in 43:12, a 6:56mpm pace.  Very happy because I finally ran a good marathon, finishing strong.  My time is in line with my last HM.   Also, I think I had a better taper and was well rested. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Temps were in the upper 20s to start with a breeze then the sun came out and it warmed into the mid 30s.  The swarm of 3:10 runners and 1:35 HM'ers helped keep it warmer early.  I started with sunglasses in the pre-dawn light.  Almost wiped out a few times...  The course was not great - some rollers on bad pavement with big cambers plus at 23 miles the course rejoined with the HM and I had to dodge hundreds of walkers... reminded me of OBX. Still I managed not to hit anyone.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>What saved me was running with the 3:10 pace group for the first 9 miles.  I ended up in front of them after a water stop and stayed just faster than 3:10 pace to the half then started to pick it up.  My first sub 7 mile was mile 15.  I kept pushing and running down other folks by setting targets and kept a decent pace.  At the end I ran down a guy who'd passed me at mile 16 with the loudest shoes known to man.  They sounded like wet flip flops. I told him so.   I finished with a 0.2 mile sprint... oh yeah!  Track has given me a kick. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Currently I'm not really that sore but I could feel a big ole blister on my middle toe - that popped in the 25th mile.  The entire toe was a blood blister... nice blood stain on my shoe.  I'm sure my quads will be angry tomorrow but I just survived 3.5 hrs of my wifes driving to get back home so I think I'm in good shape.  <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif" style="width:1px;height:1px;"></p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Hawk</strong> - best of luck tomorrow.  We'll all be rooting for you to break 3:20.</p>
<p><strong>BBS</strong> - the surfaces and brand of shoe make a big difference in the useable mileage.</p>
<p><strong>4boysmom</strong> - get better please.</p>
<p><strong>Dan</strong> - welcome home.</p>
<p><strong>Jebba</strong> - great job on the relay</p>
<p><strong>Jill</strong> - enjoy the rest</p>
<p><strong>zrun</strong> - strike a pose... when you getting back in the running saddle?  Hammie still buggin' you?</p>
