It's a challenging and hard experience but very rewarding. Well, at least the Half Ironman is. A full is nuts.

Five Fingers are awesome. I've been trail running with them for about 2 months now. I no longer have shin splints, knee or hip pain.

I've done a couple of Xterra sprint races. I'm not doing any this year cause of a new baby and starting a business. Its killing me. I can't wait till next year and start seriously training again.

Sat is my sprint tri. I've had an issue with a yellow jacket sting on my lower leg.(I'm allergic to them) Swelling has kept me from biking or running since Wed. I tried to run yesterday but had to turn back after just over .5 mile. I might make 1 more attempt at a bike ride tomorrow afternoon. Last year it took me 1hr 47min+. I'm shooting for sub 1:45. We'll see.
Hope you had a good time on the scout trip.

I had a good trip, thanks. Ran one day. Went three miles out and than ran back. Down hill all the way out. The run back was hell. I'm used to the Florida flats.

If you ride you might want to make it very light. It's more important that you're healed by Saturday. It's doubtful that you'll lose much fitness in a week and a half. If you've been training really hard you're body will probably welcome the rest. Have a fun fast race on Saturday!

Ran my first 5k last weekend. Actully done better than I thought I would considering I haven't trained for one.

Always thought it was crazy, but I can see how running can be addictive. Probably going to run another one at the first of July.

I agree 100%. I always thought the people addicted to running were crazy, but now that I do it I can definitely see why.

I would suggest a pedometer that counts steps, calories, distance, and time.

If you have a droid or a touch there are free apps that will do all of the above.

This cost a little to much for me but the best measuring device I have found is this one


This part wraps around your arm then you wear a watch that translates the results. The same one they have on the biggest loser.
This is what I use. When you finish running, you can plug your ipod into your computer and it will upload your results to a website where you can track everything and compare with the rest of the world. Kind of fun. LINK

Well years and years of being taught that running was for punishment of missing curfew or being late to morning workouts is what I blame it on.

Oh, for anyone in the Middle/West TN area I want to go ahead and throw out that there is a race in Early December that is a charity race to raise money for St. Jude Children's Hospital. I'm running the half marathon and would welcome anyone else to run it. It's a great, great cause

So I'm guessing these are comfortable running in? If you're trail running in them, I guess that answers my question about the soles being tough enough.
