Thank you Jenn that's so kind of you! It's not the age it's the mileage :-)

Hey Pat,
I would have never guessed your age in a million years!! You look far younger! That's awesome that your still running...I'm like you in that I like the way I feel when (okay, more how I feel after) the run. I'm just starting to feel my knees more...nothing that advil doesn't take care of. All the best in training.

I'm so jealous! My hubby and I used to run together all the time until injuries caught up with us. My shoulder is slowly mending but still quite painful. I've started jogging on the treadmill at the gym for 15 minute this week before I do weights and quite enjoying it. I think I'll start road running again soon if only for 20 minutes - I'd forgotten how good it makes me feel. Turned 60 this year so slowing down is going to become an issue this decade but I want to continue as long as I can. Cheers

Hey folks,
I'm in training for my 5th 1/2 marathon which is on Father's day up here in Winnipeg. Training has been going well and my hubby and I hope to have a personal best this run...if all goes well and if time permits for training (having two kids under 5 limits this) I would like to continue training for a full marathon later in the fall...we'll see. All the best to you all!

Hey David how did your foot take the pounding in the half marathon? Has there been any pain since? Congrats for finishing...a real achievement. I'm still nursing my shoulder, concentrating on exercises and leaving the other injection until mylast resort.
Hi Jet, good to meet you. Tell us about your fitness...

Hello; I just wanted to stop in and say Hello. Have a wonderful weekend.

The Half at UTT was fun and I did finish! It was a tuneup for White Rock December 13th. You never know what weather to expect but be ready with proper clothing. Is there no doubt that having a run with 20,000 others be less than exciting!?!!? Not on your life! Good luck Natalie on your run next year!

Yes, I agree that finishing a race is very exhilarating! I'm so excited to train for this marathon and then see it all pay off when I cross that finish line! I just need to make sure that I don't injure myself in months leading up to it. I'm sorry to hear about your shoulder, Pat :( What a pain! I hope that your injections start to work better! And good luck in your race, David! I have been obsessively reading articles from Runner's World the past few days to get some marathon-running advice!

I'm very impressed by the two of you not only running half marathons but the full marathon! I run a half marathon once - not an official one though - it was exhilarating and I felt pretty much okay afterwards. However, I have never run a marathon distance. My hubby completed two marathons and then injured his back [he was a dog handler with corrections] and that was the end of his long distances. It was extremely disappointing for him to say the lease. My injured shoulder has turned out to be Bursitis. I've had one injection last week but it is still the same. I may have to go to the hospital and have another injection using an ultrasound to get the injection point right. Ughhhh

Oh boy do I have advice! I have run several half and full marathons. They have been mostly in the North Texas area. I hope you are training regularly by running short and long distance runs. A good diet and rest is a must. The beginning of the run is electric. Some of the runs that I have participated in had 20,000 people and just getting to the start line can take 15 minutes. However, about mile 20 to 22 you will begin to wonder what in the world caused you to do this type of run! In the end, you will be bone tired, but really really proud of your accomplishment. I just finished my first half (10-17) this autumn. Felt good ... sort of. My next big run is the White Rock Marathon in Dallas. Several of us will be in it together and it is a lot of fun to be with others. Good luck! Have fun!
