Dream Another Dream, This Dream is Over

  • I officially deferred from the 2012 Shamrock Marathon this morning. I was looking forward to (hopefully) improving from last year, getting all the goodies, and enjoying the post-race party, but it's been pretty clear since late December that this wasn't going to happen. Get 'em next year, right?

  • I have a Twitter now: I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do with Twitter, but I thought it might be a good way to spread the word about the First Annual Earn Your Donuts Bad Race Photo Contest (Brought to you By Road ID).

  • Speaking of the FAEYDBRPC...maybe this contest wasn't as good or funny of an idea as I thought. No one's entered yet, so if you enter, you've got an excellent chance of winning a $35 Road ID gift certificate.

  • Registration for the Broad Street Run 10-miler in Philadelphia opened today. Go to to register; it'll fill up fast. It's not till May 6, so I think I could do it, but I'll hold to the new plan of taking it a bit slowly and not racing anything over 10K till the fall.

  • I went for my second run of the comeback tour on Monday night. 3 miles in 29:39. I think I miscounted laps because it seemed like I was pushing myself more than I did on Saturday. More soreness while running; less afterward. Going again on Thursday and trying a four-mile "long run" on Saturday.

(No soup for you!)


  1. How do we enter the contest? I have a fabulously horrible race picture to share.

  2. Oh I have a great pic from Carlsbad I will try to enter (aka: I will have to steal the pic...not as easy as it once was).

    Sorry you had to bail on the marathon...thankfully they let you defer. I know I ate the cost of sooo many races with my foot so it's nice when you can run it another year.
