Upcoming LONG Group Runs for month of December: please remember it does not matter how far you want to go, we will help you get the distance you want.  We pick locations that allow for varying route distances, so we can easily drop runners back at their cars whenever they want. Our long runs are run at a slower training pace, to build endurance.  Chatting helps us stay steady and strong, while we push ourselves a little further each time.

Can you believe this weather?

I am injured--there I said it.  The last few runs I have had, I have an ache (I really don't want to call it a pain, but it is) in my left calf.
I convinced myself that running on it was OK since it did not hurt too bad and it did not hurt when I walked on it.  Now it hurts when I walk on it.
This BEUATIFUL weather is killing me.  How can I not run when it is 67 degrees out on Nov 28th?  I know I should be good and rest, but I am already thinking about throwing on a pair of compression stockings/sleves and testing the calf out again--despite knowing how stupid that would be.  I will try to rest it....

Come and run with us this Sunday, December 4th, 8am at Thompson!

So proud of Nikki and Jana for running the Navesink Challenge this past weekend.  The 9 mile course is beautiful but TOUGH!  I can't wait to hear all about it.  Nancy is running a 15K this weekend in DC.  She has been training hard and will be running the race straight off a business flight from San Francisco--can you say "Jet Lag".  Thankfully she is running with an old and dear friend.  Nancy, we wish you the best of luck, but most of all enjoy yourself.

The boys and I at Born to Run 2011

Conor and I completed our 3rd annual Born to Run Race--he finished in 45 minutes and change, which is a HUGE accomplishment on this course--a PR for him and Ronan completed his first 5 mile run EVER--we finished in 52 minutes and that was with some walking--he did great and we cannot wait until next year!  We hope you can join us:)
