Who wants to place bets on whether Hyannis will get snowed out.  Seems par for the course considering the winter we've had so far.

Let's stay positive Kelly! Smile   Hopefully we've gotten it all out of the way and we'll have a perfect day.

I'm just bummed.  Was supposed to run a 10 miler in Maine this weekend and it was canceled today because of the forecast.  I love New England, just not this year.

The Cape has been getting FAR less snow than most places in New England.  As of now they don't even have standing snow partially because of salt int he air, wind conditions and as of late, rain.  I really hope it doesn't get snowed out- I doubt it!

How's everyone's training going?  I'm doing the half and have been seriously struggling running outdoors in boston, my run was so slow today because I'd rather NOT injure myself on ice before the race. Argh. Anyone else?

We have about a 3' snow pack here in CT so I've been relegated to running on the treadmill quite a bit.  Hoping to be able to get more time outside as Hyannis approaches.

Has been difficult to get the long runs outside safely.pretty much resigned to not having a PB kind of race-more of a test of commitment to train and "get it done"....  hoping race day is "seasonal" not frigid or precipitating!!!..

Suggest all tarry on fitness rather than weather...one you can control and the other you can't  (regardless of positive or negative attitude).  Waste of effort worrying about uncontollables.

Enjoy your workouts and see you at the starting line.

I was able to train outside until the middle of January...now with over 2.5 feet of snow on the ground, 4 Feet + high berms from the snow plow and all the schmoo (snow/sludge/sand/salt) that gets kicked up every time the temp breaks 32, I'm relegated to the treadmill in the basement or the track at the local Y....I'm hoping for a flat course - but the weather can't be any worse than what we've got now (I hope!)

I haven't actually ran the course before, but it appears to be very flat.  My treadmill has an iFit Internet module that allows you to create maps through Google Maps and then the treadmill will change the incline to represent the elevation/incline of the course.  Its really cool!  Anyway, I ran the majority of the course yesterday and it seemed very flat.

That app (or whatever!) for your treadmill sounds really cool!! Good for you! I am hoping to run at least a good chunk of the course this weekend whatever the weather, but I recall it from doing the 10K & spectating the half & full that it was relatively flat...Todays run at 40 with a wee bit of sun  felt positively balmy lol!

I'm not running, which is a bummer, because I was really aiming for a PR. I've got Achilles tendonosis, and will hopefully be able to get back to running by early April. However, it's better to have an injury now than during peak season.

Oh well, at least I can really focus on swimming and biking over the next two months.

I've been dealing with IT Band/hamstring issues for my marathon training.  I went on my 12 mile run this AM and IT Band/hamstring felt awesome.  But 9 miles in I had some foot pain below the ankle near the 5th metatarsel.  I hope its gone by tomorrow.  Figures...just getting over one injury then another one pops up.

I find that one injury often leads to another.  I sprained my left ankle last May and because the sprain caused me to change my gait, I ended up with achilles tendonitis in my right foot/leg.  It often seems that if its not one thing its another.

As ready as I'm gonna be! I'm hoping the weather holds out and it's dry. I can take the cold - I just really don't like running in the cold and wet.

Hope to see you all there!

Ready as I'm going to be.  Flying solo as Kathy is away this weekend.  Haven't run as much this winter as last due to left foot pain, but physically stronger overall, so we'll see what happens.  I am approaching as a "long run", no PB in the equation.  Anyone planning on going to BBC after the race?

I am not racing but I will be there to cheer and have beer.

It is SO crowded inside at  the Sheraton. It will be hard to find a gathering place before the race. Anyone have any suggestions????

After the race gathering at Britsih Beer on Main Street. Last year they wouldnt take reservations...but if we just show up we can try to put tables together.

Intrested?????

I haven't been there before, so I don't know the logistics - but would definitely love to meet up with anyone before or after the race.

The snow has me a little spooked (I'm fine running in cold, I don't like running with wet feet)...but you would think a girl from Maine would be able to handle it. Should build some character at the least!

Best of luck to all who participate! See you there,
