No problem... it was a good time.

If any other people are interested I am running again this weekend from the same spot. Trail head at Worthington Hills. This time I am doing 19/20 so come on by if you're interested.

I bought a half gallon of organic chocolate milk after we finished at Hills Market, and drank the whole thing by the end of the day, LOL!

Yeah... you looked spent... which is making me not really excited about the run this weekend.

I know when I got home I was caked in salt. After some pasta, a couple liters of water and an Aleve I was good to go.

Yeah, I really wanted to run it in with you for that last 75 yards from where I was standing when I saw you. I started to try to run and there was just nothing there at all. Nothin'

But, like I said, my goal was to come through the 20-miler without psychological scars, so to speak, and I did that. I was mentally with it the whole time and didn't falter in that aspect.

I am out - cant find a way that both my wife and I can race. On the plus side I dont have to do a 20 mile training run and a 26 mile race so I have that going for me which is nice.

Oh no! Did you already register?
How old are your kids and how many of them do you have?

nope didnt register yet but she did so she wins.

7,4 and 1 (she just had surgery yesterday). Not a big deal - Mommy will get to go to Columbus have a nice dinner with friends and have Sunday morning all to herself (and 10000 other people)

I'm in for the half marathon. It will be my first and the longest distance I have ever ran. This weekends long run was only 9 miles. Next week I'll run 10 and then start tapering down. Makes me feel like a sis reading about the runs you guys are putting in. I'm planning on the full marathon next year.

I have not followed any particular program at all, which i'm afraid will bit me in the butt on race day. I have seen training programs and have just been winging it. I have been doing my normal training routine, but focusing on running. I typically put in 3 shorter runs (3-7) miles during the week, and a long run on the weekend. My pace for the 9 miles was 8:30's, which I was pleased with. We'll see what happens on race day I guess.

You are well under way.  Non race long runs are typically well over race pace.  You have a few miles to build but you are on you way to 8:15 or so half pace.   Good job.

OK, I have two weekends left before the marathon. I just did a HIM this past weekend, so that counts for something.

Suggestions on long runs and weekday run volume over the next 2.5 weeks? I have no more tris, so I can skip out on swims and bikes, or use them for recovery.

Thanks for any ideas!

Alice

Rest up... the work is already in the bank.

I know I am totally forked... I hope to get back to running this week after shaking this cold. I actually feel almost normal today and will run tomorrow morning. I'm planning on a 10 miler this weekend. Then a 13-15 the next. Just to get back up to distance.

My marathon plan is to run the first half doing 10min/miles and then adjust from there depending on how I am feeling.

You aren't going to improve your conditioning over the next two weeks so work on maintaining and resting.

If your up to a seven or 8 miler next weekend go for it - otherwise just do maintenance runs and clear your calendar before the race for a couple days

I'll be on the look out for you guys. It's driving me nuts not doing anything the past couple of days so i'm ready for Sunday to get here.

Good luck to everyone running. I'm only doing the half, but plan on sticking around for a while when i'm done.

I'm finished and home. I was waaaayyyy too cold to stick around. I finished in 1:55 with an 8:46 per mile pace. A little bit slower than I had hoped for. I'm not one to make excuses, but here you go...........The entire 13.1 miles was so packed with people that it made it difficult to settle into a pace. Every time I thought I had settled in, I had to stop and wait for an opportunity to pass a group of walkers or slower runners. I could go on, but it was my first half and overall a good experience. Even without those issues, I wouldn't have been much faster anyways. I was shooting for 8:20's - 30's. I'm looking forward to completing a whole marathon and feel a little empty that I didn't commit to it this year.

I hope everyone else had a good race too. I look forward to reading your reports.

nice finish! i was watching around mile 15.5 so i didn't get to see you.

crowdedness in the first 13 is a complaint i have had of this race as well. the streets just aren't big enough for 10,000 people.

marathon '10!

Nice job everybody! I saw Brue out there! He took my picture!!

I made my time goal of 4:30. I finished in 4:29. Ran with Jeremy (JeremyTrains) the whole way. He hadn't trained at all and barely ran since IMKY, so that makes me a little sick that he finished with me, who actually trained for it, LOL.
But it felt really good. Much better than last year when stomach issues caused me to finish in 5:10. :-(

Great job Alice!! Congrats on beating your goal time. My buddy ran the full marathon and finished in 4:38. He was really pumped. 

Brue, I kept looking for you and couldn't remember where you and Davidtris said you were going to be standing. Anyways, i'm going to start focusing on swimming, so I may give you a shout here soon and see what your schedule is like.
