    Half marathon this morning at 1:32:19.38. Should have started a little slower, came very close to a 10K PR at the beginning. My 5K splits were roughly 20:50, 21:30, 22:10 and 22:50.

    Was about 1 foot away from getting run over this morning, closest call ever. Be careful and observant out there.

    Went to your Strava to see if I could see where the incident was. Can't figure it out, but I left once again being very jealous about the lack of elevation.

    Virtual races are just not fun. I've run one in person race since covid and did great in comparison on a shitty course.

    I'll only do a virtual race if it's free or has amazing swag

    when I registered for this one it was going to be a normal race
    they changed it to virtual recently due to increasing covid numbers

    That blows. Even though number are high I figured it was still business as usual in Florida.

    60 degrees and 0 humidity this morning. Is this for real or just a fall tease?

    This thread hasn't had a post in a while so I'm bumping with a dad brag. Super proud of my 9 year old. He decided to start running with me 2 miles weekly back in August and his gains are amazing.

    His goal is 10 minute miles

    Great race weekend, although I’m feeling it today. On Saturday, I ran a 5k with some friends who are getting into running and i won my age group (40-44) with a 21:14.
    On Sunday, ran in a half and did ok. Didn’t PR, but wasn’t far off with a 1:48:54. Tons of rolling hills with a bitch of a climb from mile 4 to mile 6. Good enough for a top 5 in my age group, though.

    I'm running the Detroit Marathon this Sunday for 2nd time. Ran it for the 1st time in 2016. Looking forward to another one, though this year the race will not go into Canada due to Covid.

    My goal for this one . . . finish the race.

    Detroit Marathon is super cool and pretty, especially the stretch on the Canada side. It should be a destination race for people

    PR in the Columbus Marathon, but not by as much as I would have liked. 3:18:54; was aiming for about five minutes faster than that.

    Ran 4:14 at the Detroit this weekend. Beat my first time by 19 mins. Ran a faster 2nd half than the 1st. Great weather and ran with some fun strangers.

    My PB, first time under 30 minutes!

    my 5K in July was 36:52 so I’m happy with my progress.

    And nice job of finishing in the top half of runners, that’s always one of my goals.

    That's awesome, nice work. I know felt good hitting that finish line.

    Going from from 36 to sub-30 is about exactly what I did around 37 years old. You can keep it going! I liked doing things like not only setting an over all time goal, but set a pace goal, like "under 9min pace" 8:59 pace is 27:55 5K. Have fun!

    Started feeling knee pain during my 18 mile training run last weekend, so I rested most of this week and attempted my regularly planned 20 miler this morning. Ran 14 with a group with virtually no issues, just a little soreness. Drove home to finish the last 6 on the treadmill and when I got home the knee was completely locked up.

    Anyone ever dealt with something similar? I’m thinking (hoping) maybe it’s an IT band issue that can be worked out in the next 3-4 weeks.

    It may not be relatable but, my only experience with anything like that was...

    Early on during the first year I started running, immediately after a race the outside of my left knee was painful when I attempted to run a "cool down" mile after the race. Like, I couldn't run, so I stopped. I was told to foam roll the IT band (note: not by a doctor, but by other experienced runners). I did that, and was running again in a few days, and haven't had that issue come back. I foam roll the IT bands gently occasionally now just out of habit and hoping that issue never comes back.

    Top 10 age group finish and top 10% overall finish in the Thanksgiving 4-miler this morning. Beat my goal of under an 8 minute pace.

    Not my best time. This was my first big race though and I didn’t anticipate how difficult it would be to overtake.

    If anything, I have more motivation for the race in May (same course)

    Felt good running the past few days, love the cold. Signing up for the Publix Half here in Atlanta, and my son is doing the 5K!

    I'm gonna shoot for sub 2 hours, haven't been able to do that in 3 years.
