Not much happening again for me. I must like it here in Virginia. However, I am (knocking on wood furiously!!) feeling better and have a 15 K race this weekend. At least that will be something.

 NO COOKIES!

I have a feeling I will be in Virginia for awhile....  I'm not even halfway across the state yet.

Welcome!  Adding you. 

 

I am not across Va yet either.  I'd guess about 2/3 of the way through.

I'm about halfway through VA.   I was about to report that I was in Kansas (please bear in mind that I live in Vancouver, Canada.  My US Geography got lost after high school 25+ years ago...).  It took me a few moments to realize that didn't seem quite right...Then I realized I entered 2100 km instead of 2.1km for my swim this morning .

I have crossed in KY!  Woot woot!

I just looked at my totals for last year, and it doesn't look as though I will be making it all the way across the country...

Oooooh, can I use that one? 

So, it looks as though Kentucky is about 100km 'longer' than Virginia.  I guess I'll be here for awhile too.

Bummer! I am part of the way through Kentucky and just saw the notice. I am going to contact the administrator there and see if we can get our progress information out and go from there.

Thanks for that! I do not want to spend eternity in Va.. just as I was going to cross the line, too! I have had issues with my knee and am WAY behind but I plan (hope) on getting my training back ramped up here full throttle in a week or so.

I started a 100 mile in June challenge. Run or walk 100 miles in June. That is a 5 K a day. I need to get my mileage back up so there it is. Join if you want.

The boat was being tossed around. Someone noted that there were whitecaps on the waves. Another guy said, “This is going to be challenging.” I began to wonder what he meant by 'challenging'.
