LJR - 2009-03-28 12:49 AM I'm out this year, but will be rooting for all of you from the sidelines. Run well folks... enjoy the experience!

Looks like I'm in the same boat--was hoping I wouldn't be, but I have a calf/lower leg injury that might be okay buy then, but IMFL is the goal this year.  Won't be there in person, but will keep track of y'all online and hopefully see some of y'all in 2010.

A bunch of us MA BTers biked part of the course  in Hopkinton yesterday.  There were TONS of people running.  Weather was really nice.  I am not even running and it was exiting.  Good luck to all.

Sorry to hear. Lower leg injuries seem to take forever. My injury is also lower leg/soleus and I haven't been able to run for 4 weeks. Hope yours heals much quicker. At least I'm able to bike and do some elliptical work... that keeps me relatively sane.

I'll be cheering you all on from just past Mile 17 (near the firehouse on Comm Ave).  I'll be the guy standing by the side of the road with a beer in one hand and a hot dog in the other! 

But just so you don't think I'm a total slouch, I am doing a 20 mile training run early that morning (getting ready for the Providence Marathon, my 1st).  I found this nice route that starts in Hopkinton and heads east ...

 If you try to hand me a beer, I might just take it...

Taper time! Last long run in the bag. Gotta say, I'm really looking forward to tapering this time.

Did my first run in over a month. No expectations, but things went very, very well. Ran 8+ miles on the treadmill with no pain. Hmmm.... I'm horribly under-trained to be thinking this way, but perhaps I'll make the start line after all.

two weeks and a wake up!

I too had the last long run and totally looking forward to the taper. I moved to Colorado last fall and I'm hoping for a boost as far as handling the 4 Newton hills and the enjoying finish.

All --

Very familiar with soleus injuries since I've had 4 since the age of 40! Now old (46), I know that CYCLE/Spinning will speed recovery. My last pull occurred last summer. Pulled it so bad (stupidity involved) there was swelling and bruising. After two weeks of aggressive CYCLE classes (3-4 / week) I competed in a sprint triathlon (ran 30 sec/mi slower then normal pace, but ran!). Was fully recovered and running again in 4-weeks. This was no marathon, but believe in the blood volume turnover and "muscle flush" that occurs in CYCLING. Hope this helps. At a minimum CYCLE will make you faster!

Good Running!

JimB,

Thanks for the great info. I've been cycling and doing elliptical work for the last 4 weeks and it seems to have helped tremendously, though I think the elliptical work was key for me. If I can run 15 or 16 this Wednesday then I'll line up at the start in Hopkinton. If not, I'll be there with beer rooting you all on to the finish.

Cheers.

Good luck, all you racers! I'll be heading up to get my bib (#7916) Friday, then back up Monday morning for the race. (Gotta love living in Connecticut!) It's a long, one-day trip, but better than sitting at a desk!

Cheers,

Doug

Well, it looks like I am going to be heading up on Saturday by myself. We can't seem to get a horse sitter and my wife and kids are going to be missing out on the trip. I have a hotel in Framingham, The Sheraton, with an extra bed if anyone is in need of a place to stay.

My training this week was pretty much non existent due to "life". I hope to get back on the bandwagon this week but am just doing the race for the experience. I'll be hopping back to the 10:30 group instead of my corral just so I don't get any bad ideas about racing!

OK, I've been away from this thread for A WHILE!!  Are there any plans for a BT meetup?  I know we were beginning a discussion on it, but I don't remember if we came up with anything. 

I'll be heading up on Thursday but will be in P-Town until Saturday morning, and in Boston from around noon Saturday on thru til Tuesday morning.  

Hope to see everyone there!!

How about a ride on Sunday? Would you be up for that Jorge? I would be up for a run or swim as well. I am also looking forward to seeing some BTers to put faces and actual voices to the screennames.
