Got my gf a new heart rate monitor for valentines day

Polar FT4F, wasn't too expensive from amazon at under 75.....She'll like it though

And looks like its pretty good quality as well.

Bigsky on here did an ultra last year I think. (a few pages back)

I love to trail run. We have an awesome trail system in my town for mtn biking and running. I did my first 10k and 15 mile race last year.

I've done a trail half. Loved it but it was tough.

Any of y'all signed up for a marathon for this year. I'm going to put in for the Chicago marathon

i did chicago last year. it was fun but crowded. i didnt do so hot either.

i tried for my first trail 50k last september, but dropped for the first time because of an IT band issue. downhills kill me and it was in the mountains.


i just got accepted for the MCM lotto, i dont even know if ill be in country for that.. but im down for whatever most of the time.

i think ill be running a 50mi in SFO dec 6 and a few of the rock n roll series. if youve never run a half or a marathon before, those are a great place to start.

i plan on taking a little jog when i go to rock therapy if possible.. any of yall going are more than welcome to come!

i just need to get better shoes -_-

Mt. Hood 50m is the only race I'm currently signed up for. There is a local 50k/50m here in May and I'm contemplating doing the 50k. I guess I'll wait and see what type of shape I'm in come mid April.

raises hand

all of the events I have done thus far have been trail events- distance from 20-40 miles; I'm signed up for a couple 20-25 mile mountain races already and will sign up for a couple of 50k's as well

we're going to attempt a Zion NP traverse early April ~ 47 miles- same group of guys that I ran w/ in Spring of 12 for the R2R2R in the Grand Canyon and last Spring a traverse of Joshua Tree- it's not an organized run/race, just guys who like to run long distances in pretty places

Well I finally did it!!! I finished a Half Marathon in under 2 hours. I don't do a lot of Half Marathons - this was only my 4th. Mostly into Spartan Racing. I did the Woody's Half Marathon here in my home City. Clocked a time almost exactly 1:59. Pretty good for a guy that's really not designed for faster distance running. So happy I finally broke this barrier.

well a big congrats!

my running was halted 3/17 w/ a stress fracture in my left heel I had to cancel out on Zion, 7 weeks w/o running; first some stationary cycling, then started hiking, two weeks ago I started some light jogging. I was signed up for a mountain 30k last weekend and had to drop to the 12k, I made it- but it was slow.

I bought a mtn bike and if my heel is sore after a run, I'll bike the next day (like today)

it's getting a little old to say the least
