    Default Any runners here?

    Just wondering if we have any other runners on here?

    I'm currently training for the Rock-n-Roll 1/2 Marathon in Chicago on August 14 and the Chicago Marathon on October 9th.



    My thumb just automatically sticks up whenever there's a camera around... I honestly never consciously give the thumbs up but half my pictures show that I do... :p

    Dude...Your the Fonze! Heeyyyyyyyy

    I ran a few times in competition when I was young. I did get a 3rd place in a 5k once....finished behind 2 Kenyon's that were training for the olympics.

    Knee injuries ended my running days. Since then, you have seen my version of "Competitive Running"...it involves a helmet and a tethered kill switch, lol! I think I do well at it though!

    In high school, I was in track. I ran the 800, 1600, and sometimes the 3200. I also ran cc my freshman and sophmore years. I really enjoyed it, but for some reason I never carried it on later in life....

    Props to you though and good luck!

    It was 85 and the sun was full blast but got out there either way.

    I use a GPS on my phone to track the runs, here's the one from this afternoon: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/39849586

    Like a lot of people, I ran back in school. I was pretty good but that little problem I have with authority and not hittin' the books kept me off any of the teams.:o

    Default Half Marathon

    Ran the Rock & Roll Chicago Half Marathon today!

    Finished in 01:52:04

    I was shooting for 1:45



    I was a little worried getting back from 1 week vacation straight to the run and falling asleep last night @ 1am to wake up at 4am was maybe not the best idea... (Watched Bears game and Boxing match... evil DVR)


    • The first 8 miles I stayed on a 1:42 (ish) pace but started slowing down after that.
    • After 9th mile I started getting cramps in my right calf.
    • After 10th mile I started getting the dreaded cramp/pain on the right side of my ribs.
    • Walked for 2 or 3 minutes between miles 10~11.
    • The last mile was a fast mile a little faster than my 1:45 pace


    After I crossed the finish line as I was cooling down BOTH my calves started cramping pretty badly. I drank water @ 3 stations and had Gatorade at another which is more than enough for 13 miles. I'm assuming I was just dehydrated from the vacation hence the muscle cramps..,

    Now I have to get my act together because I'm also running the Chicago Marathon in less than 2 months!!!
