Are there any runners here on TacomaWorld?


Both pictures were taken at the Gate River Run. It is a 9.3 mile course that goes over the Main Street Bridge crossing the St Johns and then the Hart Bridge coming back over.
Here's the Main Street Bridge

And the Hart Bridge(nicknamed the Green Monster). This past race in March the winds were gusting to 40 mph!

I'm a piss-poor excuse for one missile but I run....6 miles yesterday,3 miles today,about 12 miles a week.I was doing Tri's for a number of years but got out of it this year.Running was always my weak point but I trudge along anyways.3 years ago I did a half marathon in 2.5 hours but I got 'er in.

Great shots btw.

I do something that looks like running... only slower! 3-4 times a week 40+ minutes each. Most I've done is 18+ miles in three legs of the Providian Relay from St Helena to Santa Cruz, CA (200 miles). Only good part of a run is when its over!!!

I get up to six miles. My SWAT commander is a psychopath that thinks six miles is a suitable test of endurance. Im trying to explain to him that I cant bench a house AND run six miles at the same time, but it's been fruitless thus far.

Half Marathon on Aug 17th

just putting in my last 10-12 nasty days of training and then ramping down. Looking to go about a buck forty for the Half here in Edmonton. 1st half is nasty hills in the river valley and then halfway it stays up out of the valley and turns into a sprint.

That's how I explain it, Trudging along! You've got those guys that are born that way, with long legs and weight 160lbs, that floats like a feather. Then you have me. 200lbs of brick!

I wish I could do 12 in a day! I feel lucky to have done my 4 earlier.

If I can get in 12-15, I'm happy.

Damn, that sucks! I can't run everyday. My knees really start to hurt if I do. I've never been seen about it though. I just had some Physical Therepy done on my ankles. I forget what its called but there is a band that holds all the tendons in place. My ankle was so sore from it. But, the only time it hurts is if I touch it, so I don't touch it!!!

I just run on the treadmill about 3 miles a day. Not hardcore like the rest of you. But it's good friggin exercise that's for damn sure. The best thing is the "high" I get when I stop.

Sounds like a fun course with lots to see! My first half was in Houston. I went 1:26!
