  • In honor of you all, I picked one of my favorite nicknames from this place and put it on my bibs for this fall's warm up series.

        Lol. It wasn't a PR course - it's up and over one of the biggest bridges in the area, not once but four times. Still, I was only about 1:15 off my PR, 3:00+ better than last year (admittedly that effort was only 85%) and was really happy with the pacing.

        • Counting today, there are 100 days left in the year. My goal is to run on as many of those days as I can.

          • Plan on running a 1/2 marathon and then win the race for the full. Impressive.

            • First day back after burning my foot. I threw down a 5k. It may still be too early. I got done and the blister was totally re-aggravated and tender. I was really hoping 3 weeks was enough healing. Dammit...

                Awesome. Kind of reminds me of Utahn Paul Pilkington in the LA Marathon in 1994:

                • For a person who walks/jogs outside in the depths of winter - I am a wimp!

                  The last couple of days have been cool about 50 ) enough for me to break out the sweatshirts and gloves

                  I may be small, but I'm slow.

                    When I go out in the morning, I check the temp. I usually go by this:

                    60 or higher- shorts and short sleeve shirt
                    45-60- shorts and long sleeve shirt
                    30-45- tights, shorts, long sleeve shirt, vest, gloves, and headband
                    15-30- tights, shorts, thermal top, vest, gloves, headband or fleece cap
                    Raining or snowing- treadmill

                    None of the articles of clothing listed above are cotton.

                      I agree with those clothing guidelines, although around here anything below 30 is the End of Days and I'd likely sit it out.

                        I ran in 11 degree weather last winter...never again.

                          When I was younger I would run in temps down to 0 degrees. No more for me either.

                            That looks about right with a few caviates

                            50 deg in Sep/Oct seems a whole lot colder than 50 in March/Apr

                            My hands get cold easily, so I normally start wearing gloves at about 60 - sweat shirts - 40 or so. I normally where sweat pants all yr long. I never liked shorts even as a wee lad

                            I may be small, but I'm slow.

                              Here's mine, which is close to what everyone else does:

                              60 or higher- shorts and short sleeve shirt
                              50-60- shorts and long sleeve shirt
                              40-50- shorts, running jacket over short sleeved t-shirt
                              30-40- shorts, running jacket over short sleeved t-shirt, calf warmers/compression, maybe a running hat
                              25-30- shorts, running jacket over short sleeved t-shirt, calf warmers/compression, wool tuc
                              Under 25 or Snowing- doesn't really happen in Houston

                              Raining- as long as there's no lightening, I'm out there running. I did one of my 14 milers last winter in a cold rainstorm. Most miserable run I've had but glad I did it.
                              "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

                              • You guys run hot! I don't know how you run in 50s and tights. Tights are reserved for under freezing or 40s and raining. I can't stand layers on my legs.
                                I go short sleeves down to 50, then long sleeve down to mid 30s, throw on a running jacket/gloves/hat under that. Shorts all the way.
