Hometown: New Jersey
February 14, 2009
I live in Cary, moved from NJ in 2005, and have been running since I was 13. I always feel much better after I run!
Around my neighborhood area during the week. Usually I run with RTR at Umstead on Sunday mornings and Thursday nights.
I usually run 4 times a week, typically 5 to 10 miles during the week with a long run on the weekend of 10 to 20 miles. Usually between 8 to 8:45 for long runs, 7 to 8:30 for shorter runs.
I ran the NYC Marathon in 2009, Boston in 2010 I ran Boston, and Umstead in 2012. I am training for Umstead and Big Sur in 2013. I'd like to run Chicago in the future and someday the Paris Marathon.
Mary, thanks for checking in. I've been very busy starting a new job and planning a wedding (for me). Also, I usually dial it down in the winter but am looking to start ramping up soon. See you on the trails!
Forgot to tell you our time tonight (since you forgot your watch) I have it as 6.37 miles, 51:16
Good running with ya!
Lol When I was getting in the car I realized that you were asking about my knee from last week and not the flu I had earlier in the month. No wonder you had a strange look on your face! :) Yes, my knee was giving me problems last week. I forgot about that and was having a blonde moment. All better now though and thanks for asking. :)
No problem at all- I got a few miles in after so it was all good. Happy to do it again next time if you have them along with- just let me know.
Mary, nice meeting you. Great thing this "south Raleigh" run at Ritter Park. Let's keep it going. Harris Lake? Anywhere south Raleigh metro area. Holly Springs and Apex are booming and sometimes it's a pain always having to head up to Shelley or Umstead.
Thank you so very much, Mary, for making yesterday's Cookie Run so much fun! It really was a great break for me during a long training run. I saved some of my cookies to share with my family once I got home and my girls were VERY appreciative as well ;-)
Hey Mary, just joined the Trail Group and see that you are one of the organizers. Nice run in the rain tonight see you at the Jolly Elf and then the cookie run.
It was great meeting you tonight at Big Boss! Thanks for coming out!
You're correct! I went to the Harrison entrance. I hope you all did not wait for me! I ended up running solo but hope to join you next time!
It was great! Even with the cold rain it went much better than I had hoped, and now I'm trying to decide when the next one will be! Thanks!
