I know what you mean. The first thing I look for when I pull up RunningwithEric is the Hillary Cat. 2.5 of last night's 3 miles was at my goal pace for the Race for the Cure. I might not end up embarrassing myself on Race Day. My Road ID came in the mail yesterday, so I wore it last night and felt much more confident that I might not end up in a "Jane Doe" grave should someone kill me when I'm out running in the dark. Love you muchly!

Ugh! This is the first time I've run since Sunday thanks to the rain. I'm much happier now.

I am a lazy bum today. I intended to run, but my body insisted that I needed another hour of sleep this morning. I may try to sneak in a run tonight after the sun goes down. Love you!

Look at you go! Another 3 miles today! I'm almost afraid to ask this, but how long does it take you to run those 3 miles?

Love you muchly!

4 miles on a work morning? All right, Hillary!

You go, girl! I'm so proud when I see your name pop up in the "Dustin's Run Mojo" forum. It's like we're running together, but at different times and in different cities. Love you!

Yeah, it seems a shame to have these long, long legs and not be throwing them as far in front of us as we can.

I'm pretty proud of myself as well. It wasn't fast, but I felt pretty good during and after. Thanks for the atta-girl.

How goes the mid-foot striking? Is it starting to feel more natural?

Love you, too, very much.

Blerg! I'm tired of being the tortoise! I want to be the hare!

I had a little motivational help today from a territorial crow who decided that of all the people running around the lake, I was the one he didn't want in his area. He dive-bombed three or four times whenever I passed through his little domain. It did encourage me to pick up my pace.

Cool! Will you try to run the 5K in them this weekend? I'm eager to hear your report on them.

It may not mean much to the freaks running across Death Valley in July, but I'm all kinds of impressed with it. It's what I'm aiming for but can't do, yet. My goal is to be you! You rock!

Hi Chickadee,
I've been reading Dustin's blog. It made me think of both Aunt Violet and Uncle Harold. Maybe once we get up to speed (or out to distance), we could do something similar.

I have my monitor and I've been using it on Eric's beginner program. It really makes clear that I have some conditioning to do, but it's also very nice to find out that my resting heart rate is about 55-60 and that my heart rate drops very quickly when I stop exerting myself. I've been stretching my calves and achilles tendons 3-4X/day and it's really helped with the post-run soreness. I have to do my running at 6am, but a shower and breakfast salad afterward get me going for the rest of the day.

I want to hear how you do in the race. And I want to see pictures!

I love you and I'm very proud of you.

I read Eric's MOJO blog and added my goals to the forum page. I have done what I can to make myself accountable. I enjoyed my short run this morning. I can see how one might become addicted.

I love you and I love being able to share this with you!

I ordered a heart rate monitor today. I might be getting serious.

If you haven't read "Born to Run" yet, you'll find that it makes you ache to run an ultramarathon. Now I ache from running a mile. Oh, that's "running".

I'll be you're friend. I'll even be your sister! Love you!
