I've run it the past. It's a pretty, hilly, country course. Good bargain for price- even a finishers medal. Not running it this year though- have my marathon on that date- rock n' roll D.C.

i got us there 45 minutes late too, as I didn't double check the start time. They were great though, and it was a wonderful race and really well organized. A perfect first 50k for a back of the packer like me. Qassim Abdullah was awesome and it was a lot of fun crossing the finish line holding hands.

Great run all, you guys had a beautiful morning for it...

It sounds like an emergency to me!

Well done!

Great cause. Everyone needs cookies. 😊

Must have missed her!

Money well spent. You're a pair of gaiters away from being an ultra runner now.

Katrina--Start on Greenbrier Rd just before Swope Rd. Cross the creek. Turn right. Follow red trail around. At top of hill turn right up more hill. Continue until intersection with Orange on right side (or go straight to stay on red but shorter & nasty downhill). Take Orange around lake & reconnect with red. Once on large gravel part of trail take left. About .25 down don't miss the right turn to cross the creek. This is around 5 miles.

Oops! Then the red trail is my pick!! πŸ˜„πŸƒ

I'm interested in trying minimalist or barefoot running. Where is a good running shop? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Two Rivers Treads in Shepherdstown!

I have been advised to not go from standard shoes (with a 6-14mm drop) to zero drop/minimalist/barefoot running shoe without some sort of transitioning plan. This is due to the slight change in running form that occurs, especially with the midsole and Achilles tendon. I did not really follow a plan, but I did shorter runs than my normal runs. I also wore them more when I was not running to get even more accustomed. Personally, since I spend a lot of time barefoot and shoeless when I am not running, I think my legs were a little more accustomed to the running in minimalist shoes. However, that is just me. Your mileage may vary. πŸ™‚

When I converted, I had trouble with lower leg stress when I first tried zero drop shoes. I went to 4mm differentials (Saucony Kinvara or Brooks Pure Flow) and was comfortable there. After a couple of years in 4mm, I went to zero drop and was then able to make that transition comfortably. Now, wearing anything with greater than a 4mm differential feels awkward and clunky. I also caution people about transitioning to running in "bare foot" shoes. I think they are great to wear to exercise your feet for walks or short gentle runs, but suddenly beginning to do a lot of running in shoes with no cushioning can be hard on anyone especially if you don't have superb mechanics. You've got to do some trial and error to find out where you are comfortable. I've settled into Altra "The One" as my shoe of choice. They are zero drop and exceptionally light weight and flexible with a amply wide toe box and adequate cushioning, but they probably would've been too minimalist for me when I started. Altra and the 4mm shoes mentioned above can be found at If the Shoe Fits, but Two Rivers Treads in Shepherdstown is the area's purely minimalist shoe store where you'll find the greatest variety of choices.

Make sure your do a little research on stride rate/cadance. Additionally FFS may make minimalist shoes more beneficial for you. I have slowly transitioned from 12 to 4 mm drop shoes. It took me a few years actually but I had numerous foot surgeries prior to changing. A lot of research out of Irene Davis lab at Havard suggests you get different ground reaction forces with minimalist shoes/fore foot strike and high cadence (176 per minute.) You probably trade off shin splints, knee injuries and back injuries for achilles and FHL tendonitis if you believe the their publications.

The key issue in reducing collision forces is not what type of shoe you wear nor what part of your foot touches the ground first. It's what direction your foot is moving when the impact occurs. If it's moving against the ground (as it would be if landing significantly in front of your center of gravity), there's a braking effect that has a higher impact force. If your foot is already moving back with the ground where the knee and ankle are in position to flex on contact, it significantly reduces the impact. Conventional running shoes with the elevated heels have a tendency to cause people to make contact on their heel earlier in their stride cycle creating that braking effect on an extended leg. But a forefoot landing can also create high impact with people that force a forefoot landing by pointing their toes down as they reach for the ground in front of them . Doing that still creates impact but transfers that impact to different parts of the leg from heel landing. The objective should be to learn adapt mechanics that has your foot underneath you moving back with the ground upon landing. The amount of elevation in the sole of your shoes can have a significant influence on where that landing occurs in the stride cycle.

Best Thai in Frederick? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Kittiwat and Summitra

I like My Thai and Lucky Corner (vietnamese but close enough)

lucky corner is excellent!

Lucky corner or summitra ... Summitra has the best duck egg rolls and lemongrass tea! Lucky corner has the yummiest vermicelli noodles

Kittiwatch Kitchen, Lucky Corner or Summitra

I've heard from others that Kittiwatt is the place to go. Need to try it.

Kittiwatt was really good

Bangkok Thai Kitchen

I prefer Sumittra.

Lucky Corner is excellent and has a few Thai dishes.

Sumittra is very good. If you like sushi, the Lazy Fish is awesome (just above Sumittra).

If you want really great Thai, drive down to Germantown and go to Sabai Sabai! It is excellent, better than the places in Frederick. Totally worth the drive.

Best Thai in Frederick is a tough call; there are several great options. Our whole family loves Thai so we get it a lot. I'd rate Sumittra and Kittiwat equally; and My Thai nearly as good but a little lacking in appetizers (no edamame or seaweed salad). Kittiwat has a unique presentation for its Thai iced tea; if you like Thai iced tea you have to try theirs. Lucky Corner is more Vietnamese, but they have plenty of Thai, and I think their Westview location has become my favorite over all others. The chicken with chili and lemongrass is simply fantastic! And so is Chicken in a hot pot. Treat yourself and try each of these places!

Not in the downtown area, but Kittiwat is very good.

FHS STADIUM CLOSED FOR RENOVATION
As part of the Frederick High School replacement project, stadium renovation will take place beginning in late February and continuing through July, 2017.

Effectively immediately the stadium field and track are closed to the public due to construction.

The stadium, complete with a new artificial turf field, is scheduled to reopen in August for the 2017 fall sports season.
The renovation will be followed by abatement/demolition of the old school in summer/fall 2017.

The new Frederick High School is set to open for students in fall 2017, with total project completion by summer 2018.

Hi everyone, thanks for accepting me into group. New to group and need to get my butt running again. Curious about the diversity in running pace's? Currently live in Boonsboro but my practice is located in Frederick. Look forward to joining runs! ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

I'm way on the other side of the county, over in W. Howard. My pace is around 10:30, and I think I'm probably fairly slow compared to the paces I see people post. The good news? The club is really big and the members are very helpful and encouraging no matter your pace! 😊

You want diversity, you have come to the right place. We have people from 7:30 to 15:00. I am generally around 9:30 give or take.

Hi Vanessa, we have an extreme variety of paces. Everything from 7:30 min miles to 15:00 min miles. We all just want to run for the enjoyment. Quite frankly one of our trail and fall HM coaches just moved out your way. We do runs all over the county for various reasons. C'mon out to a group run sometime, we'd love to have you.

Welcome to the best running group around. You will find a variety of paces. Your pace is your pace! No judgements or comparing just running for the benefits and meeting new people.

Welcome Vanessa! My wife and I also live in Boonsboro and we have many runner friends that live nearby. Despite what pace you're comfortable with, there's a good chance you'll find a handful of running partners.

And if you want to get into running the trails, we have a group for that as well. Our paces are always slow-ish.

Nicole Davis can give you more information if interested. We even have an official mascot with Rachel Huffman Ridgway pup (Mosley).

I usually do my runs between 8:15 and 8:45. I try to slow down to about 9 mins for longer runs or when I'm feeling rough

3 miles: from house, around FCC and back thru Cloverhill 2 is about 3 to 3.5 miles. Mostly level

6 miles: house, around FCC perimeter, down Oppossumtown pike, left on Thomas Johnson, left on Hayward left on Oppossumtown pike and back around (reverse) FCC perimeter thru Cloverhill and back to home

9-10 miles: house, around FCC perimeter, down Oppossumtown pike , pass OVER Rte 15 and continue downtown on Motter (becomes N. Bentz). Continue to Carrol Creek and turn right and run along creek towards Baker Park. Run along Carroll parkway.

Yet another great run with great company. Definitely feel accomplished having done those hills. I hope everyone has a great rest of this already-beautiful Saturday!

Well done!

Man, I haven't done 1,000 feet of climb since August. This one hurt so good. I also got lost a couple times so I was on track to need 19 just to get back to the start. Fortunately Jenny Hallberg swept the course and gave me a lift a little after that Teen Barnes death march almost exactly after 16. Not my fastest run by far but great training.

Missed you all at Mid Maryland

What a beautiful route through Middletown Valley. Thanks for laying this out Jenni and thanks for the great aid station.

Thanks Jenny Hallberg for a great job with today and all the training runs! Just got back today and I'm glad things went well. And Nobody can complain next week when the marathon training group conquers the (much smaller) hills of Utica!

I usually do 17, 20, 16, 12, race, but of course everyone is different. One of my good friends does two week taper. But I don't see getting two more 20's in.

I'm doing 22,18,(10 or 12), 8

I would be doing similar to this Linda, don't be nervous....good to go!

My (1st) marathon is 3/11. Have only run 16 and 18 milers. Planning on 20 next week, then club challenge (10 mile race), and 14 miles the week before. Not worried about it. No time goals (under 4 hours) , 2nd marathon hope to do better. I think your amount of training Should be fine. I've been semi-injured past month/ just trying to survive my March marathon.,

Ruth Taylor I am debating running RnR also. My boss is trying to finish his first that day and I've been thinking what I really need is just straight up time on my feet. Maybe a relaxed 9ish run with a goal of not bonking. I'm just worried if I fail that goal it will really dissuade me from trying another real race later....

I'm running this marathon but not as a fast one. My goal is under 4 hours (around 9 minute pace). I'm hoping Gettysburg to be my spring race marathon. My training plan has been modified due to R hip pain with decreased mileage from my baseline of 40 week. I running one 20 miler this weekend as my longest run. This past month have only been averaging 30 a week. I'll be glad to run with you for rock n roll. Just hope I can keep up with you.

Thank you to Amy Weed for pacing a great training run for me yesterday!

Big shout out to every one who got out there and ran !!!

tore it up at Mid Maryland 50K a 30 minute PR over last year (which was 70 degrees colder) 7th woman overall

Jill Jill Cameron- That's my longest run in ages-and to think I did it from Rochester😜. Must have been another Bill-but I do look forward to joining you guys at some point!

She meant Bill Duke!!!!!

Brenda Becker Dorman, Brenda jacobs and Susan Errickson who ran Mid Maryland 50 Relay with me. We ran as 2 different groups. We did great

Shout out to everyone in the Half Marathon Training Group. We're going to have an awesome time over the next few weeks.

Shout out to my birthday bestie, Janadel Harris. She spent her day snowboarding, but has shared so much of her love for running with others today and always. Mwah, love you girl!

Shout out to Keary Johnston who ran with me on a hilly 18 miler in the pouring rain when she could have run long on Sat. In beautiful weather! Couldn't have done it without you!

I LOVE this idea! Great post, Jill! Shoutout to all of the marathon training group participants who dominated some serious hill yesterday - you guys are amazing!! Can't wait to recognize more achievements in the weeks to come!

Shout out to my amazing husband Javier Montenegro who ran 50 miles this week while juggling a sick wife and two boys πŸ™‚

Excited to have ran with the 1/2 group after a many month injury. Feels amazing to be back on the road.

Shoutout to all the Steeps who ran the first group run of our spring Half Marathon Training Program on Saturday. Also a shout out to all the marathon group members who ran their longest run ever on Saturday.

Big shoutout to Jenny Hallberg for stepping up to help out (like she ALWAYS does for all of us) with the marathon group while Ruth enjoys some well deserved rest.

Definitely agree with Billy Clem! Shout-outs to both Jenny Hallberg and Billy Clem for their invaluable assistance with marathon training group. Takes a village!

Are any of you running the George Washington's Birthday marathon in Greenbelt next week? It will be my first marathon. Anyone run it before? How is it? How's the course? The atmosphere? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

I have never heard of this race before but best of luck to you on running your first marathon!

Never heard of it either. Quick google search says it's been run ever year since 1962. I'm sure somebody in here has run it before. Good luck

I haven't run it but have heard of it and for a couple of years was thinking of doing the relay. I grew up down that way and Greenbelt is fairly flat with some hills but nothing too killer. I believe it is a smaller race but not 100% sure. Good luck and give us the report about it.

I know the course well. It is a three-loop course with an extra section at the start and an extra section at the end. It starts with an uphill followed by a significant downhill before reaching the loop. The loop has gently rolling hills on country roads. Everything is paved. If it's windy, you could have long stretches into a headwind. After the third loop, you head back up the [monster] hill you went down early in the race. The last kilometer is all downhill and flat, finishing near the start.

When you look at our website steeplechasers.org just under the menu bar, you will see a rotating list of short factoids, all which start "The Steeps". I thought it might be fun to expand the list. Can anyone think of more we can add?

The current list is:

* have been running around Frederick since 1975
* sponsor and coach the Panther Running Club at Lincoln Elementary School
* get their name from the famous β€œclustered spires” of historic Frederick
* offer training programs for 5k, half-marathon and marathon distances
* meet up for monthly happy hours
* had more than 200 people volunteer in 2017
* have a race where every runner gets a pie
* eat hills for breakfast
* gave over $55,000 to charity in 2017
* put on four major races
* have almost 900 members
* provide race timing services
* are runners of all abilities
* run together and individually
* care about their community

Provides race support services more than X number of races a year - a great, low-cost resource that benefits the Frederick community and fosters a love of running - all made possible by Steeps volunteers!

from Fred Schumacher: sponsors a 10 race track series during the summer

They all look good from behind. Just my perspective

Monthly happy hours?! I have to get in on that!

Comment on Facebook

Garmin 10, Garmin 15 or Garmin 25-- they all track basics and are less than $100

Buy a used one on eBay

Get one from Garmin Factory Outlet Store, still comes with a 1 year warranty (like new) but usually really good prices. For absolutely basic needs, Garmin 10, 15, or 25 ($50-$70 I think) are your choices. They have some minor differences. I'd personally recommend going a step up with the 220 ($129), it lets you program in workouts that can make following a training plan much easier (goal paces, distances, etc.). I think most of them these days will also auto sync via bluetooth to your phone so you can upload all of your runs easily (220 and 25 for sure). Avoid TomTom watches. g.factoryoutletstore.com/cat/31168/Fitness-For-Runners-.html

Are there any with 4 way split screens like on the 205/305?

You get what you pay for, Garmin has been great for me.

Garmin Forerunner 10. It's small and it tracks distance and time and that's it. I've had mine for almost 4 years, I absolutely love it, and I can only recall one time when I had an issue with it (and even that ended up being user error!).

run with someone who has one & get the info from them πŸ˜‰

I have the Garmin 15. It fits my needs just fine.

i have the garmin 25 and love it but am upgrading to the 235. my 25 is in great condition and practically brand new if you're interested in buying it... Robert Cole

We have Polar M400 and really enjoy them.

I'm selling my Garmin 210 ($50) if your interested. Used only once. Comes with all the original packaging. Let me know if your interested.

The new standards for men will be 73% for Elite (as compared to the previous 76%), and 70% for Developmental (as compared to the previous 73%).

Breakfast Run #4February 18, 2017, 8:00amBreakfast runs are amazing! Each runner brings a breakfast item to share, drops it off at the host's house and chooses from one of three distances provided by the host. As a group, everyone leaves at 8:00am and then they return from their various routes to hot coffee, delicious food, and friendly faces. The camaraderie and support of these breakfast runs are great.

This fourth event will be hosted by Jill and Eric Cameron! You'll need to RSVP them at jill.cameron73@gmail.com to let them know what you are bringing and to get their house address.

The three routes are 4, 8 and 10 miles. You'll get to enjoy some of downtown Frederick and the greater Baker Park area. Please take into consideration that parking is quite limited and you may need to bring quarters to feed the meter maid or be prepared to arrive 10 minutes early to walk a little further to their home.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Hello Steeps! Quick question- Has anyone here used NUUN Active or Energy Hydration before/after your workouts? Tell me about it if you have any opinions about it! ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Meh... I wasn't a fan but many people swear by it. Try some on a medium length run and see how you like it. We're all different...

My husband and I both use nuun after long runs. There are many different flavors to choose from... I like the strawberry lemonade one.

I like Nuuns a lot, but only before/after a run. I tried it once during a run and it didn't sit well. They recently changed their formula and I'm not as wild about the new ones (they taste a bit like fake sugar to me) as I was the old ones.

I used it , didn't get any cramps. Easy on my stomach

I like it a lot. I only use it on short runs while running and after long runs. I think it helps with electrolyte replacement. I stick with Tailwind for long runs.

I used to use it without issues, then for one particular race it just didn't sit well. I've since switched to Skratch, which I like better.

Thanks everyone!! Great input- sounds like there are a lot more options out there I can look into πŸ™‚

Are you looking more for something before or after running? How does your stomach handle things before runs?

It was too fizzy for me. Made me belch the entire run. No matter what you use brush your teeth after you get home.

I use Huma chia energy gels which never upset stonach. If the Shoe Fits now sells them so I don't gave to order online anymore!!!! YEAH

i do i love it and they just introduced nuun vitamins

I like scratch ! But I've also had tailwind and it's ok.

So you're looking for pre-post workout supplementation like aminos or looking for energy? Usually it's best to take a pre workout before the run for energy and a post workout after for recovery. Nutrition is a very personal thing and everyone has different likes or experiences. The best is for you to try it all out and stick with what you find that works. My experience is mostly with triathlons but it's still endurance training.

Enjoy the run all!!

It was a fun race!

Good seeing you on the course!

I thought I saw you on the course!

My 3 year record of missing the steeps picture post race is still alive. I loved the course , well marked , straight aways, couple tough little hills , bathrooms , parking , all good. Congrats everyone!!

One to put on the calendar for next year-our family really loved the course

I agree Mike. It was well marked and fairly easy to run even with my rt. calf cramping the 2nd half

How was the race? Did you do a trail run?

Yes it was a trail run for 10k and 1/2 marathon

It was a great race. Well marked course. Hills were not terrible. I am glad I chose this as a beginners course.

Ah man, I was there too! Wish I would've found you guys for the picture!!!! Hope everyone had a great race!

Great job all! Looks like a lot of fun. I will have to try it next year when I get my hip fixed.

Some of the trail running crew took a field trip to VA to do a long run on the North Face 50k course. It was a fantastic morning -- Mosley earned a new PB of 16+ miles, and I brought down my fall:miles ratio to 1 face-plant per 5 miles.
I also learned that if the tubing from the bladder pack isn't working, you should check to see if it's connected first (maybe before you've gone 14mi).

Looking good folks!

And Dan doesn't always know the run route πŸ™„. I still don't know why everyone didn't start climbing the rocks like I did....

The dog-tongue photo bomb makes this post that much better.

You're funny!

You all look great! That was the 50K I ran with Michelle Mitchell in 2015!

Congratulations ladies!

#sassypants

Right on! Congratulations to both of you! Well deserved.

Well deserved imo. Congrats Becky.

It's because you two are so positive and encouraging! Love your initiative on the walking group! I'd come myself, but have a hard time getting up that early on Sunday mornings!

Well deserved!!! πŸ™‚

Thank you all! It is so overwhelming to be recognized in such an amazing group of people. It is made even more special to be recognized with the woman who took every step by my side while training for and racing my first half. She made sure I was never alone and we often finished last but always finished smiling. It became the inspiration for Walk in the Park, helping people take the first steps to health and not be taking those first steps without a helping hand and a warm smile.

First of all gotta say I <3 the pants!! Secondly you both are so deserving of this award. You continue to encourage others, even when you might feel discouraged. I'm honored to know both of you and look forward to having both of you in the half marathon training group.

Becky you are always just THERE with a hug and a smile! Thank you

Congrats to you both, incredibly deserving!

Congrats to you both! You earned it!!

Thank you both for all you do!!!

You two embody all that is great about FSRC! Thank you for all you've both done to make this club accessible to everyone and fun for all. And I have to say - this photo is so darn cute!

Great job! Both of you definitely deserve it!

Well deserved for sure Becky and Syble β™‘ Congrats to both of you!

Great job! both of you help to make the Steeps a great experience!

Well then, Becky Boughn... You have no idea how much you mean to so many runners. You are so cheerful and supportive. You so deserved that award! So proud of you! Congrats to both of you ladies! πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ

Great job ladies....

You both are awesome!

Seeing this makes me think that we need to have some Fashion awards next year. Best pants, winter category

Love the outfits. You ladies are awesome!

So happy for you both to be recognized for all you do.

I know a rest day is needed in a plan but why do I always feel so guilty about taking any rest days 😭 I even woke up early today and got on the treadmill just to realize a rest day was smarter since I haven't had one at all this week and my long run is tomorrow. Please tell me I'm not alone!!!!! ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

I'm just the opposite, I look forward to rest days. There was once a time when I would feel guilty - but seeing the rewards(a PR) of those rest days has me appreciating them more and more - especially as I get older 😊

rest days are important. never feel guilty. your body is telling you something and glad you listened.

Rest days can throw u off sometimes but they are great! πŸ‘πŸ»

After running every day in January, I had my first rest day this week. I was so bored, and felt lazy!

I struggle with the same thing at times. Rest days are important though. If I cross train it helps. I feel more accomplished if I break a sweat.

a rest day give your body time to heal the microtears that running causes. It heals itself stronger than it was before. One of the best "nothings" you can ever do.

I make sure I walk on rest days. I'm still doing some while making sure my body is getting what it needs. And I read somewhere (hal higdon maybe?) that walks are especially beneficial after a tough run.

I enjoy an occasional 2-4 mile rest day every so often

Active rest days are allowed,try stretching ,gentle yoga, functional movement

I have my best runs after taking 2 days off but I feel so guilty those 2 days!

Someone suggested the "Yoga for Athletes" which can be found On Demand. It is only 17 minutes long and is the best for runners!! One of the best suggestions I have gotten from this page.

Struggle

"Rest" doesn't have to mean no running. It can mean much shorter distance (a mile or two) at a much slower pace than what you're used to doing. Recovery days where you run only a few miles at a very relaxed pace - somewhere in the 50-60% max HR range are recommended the day following any kind of quality run (e.g., a long run or anything involving tempo miles/speedwork).

It's been many years since I dumped the "no run" rest day and switched to running seven days a week. There's only a minor additional performance benefit to running seven days versus six, sure, but I found it to be a tremendous help in staying motivated. There's never any question of "Am I gonna run today, or will I not feel like it and take today off?" If it's a day ending in a "y", I run! Like Evan said, though, a running day can be a rest day. For those who are trained enough to run every day, a nice & easy 3 miler can be enough to stretch out your legs and get your lungs breathing without really taxing anything. The key, of course, is the "nice & easy" part. Not everyone has the same lack of shame about being seen running really slowly as I do! πŸ˜›

No rest for the wicked. So if you have been good you get a rest day.

Like everything else in this sport, it is highly individual. Find what works for you.

Thanks everyone.... I've had such a "great" day at work... note the sarcasm... and have had to run all over a large high school and up and down 3 flights of stairs so I don't feel as guilty anymore. On another note why can I run 20 miles without struggling too much but yet running up two or 3 flights of stairs Kills me πŸ€”

I was in your boat, hate rest days but had I taken more of them maybe I wouldn't have gotten an over use injury...

As a group, everyone leaves at 8:00am and then they return from their various routes to hot coffee, delicious food, and friendly faces. The commeraderie and support of these breakfast runs is great.

January has come and gone. How are you doing with your running goals? I would love to see how many miles were run this month. If you want, post your January miles here, and make a goal for yourself for February! ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

My goal was 100 but I didn't keep track. I probably got in 80.

Great idea, Jill! 185 miles in January for me. The goal for February is to taper after 2/5 and run the Mesa-Phoenix marathon on 2/25. As always, the real goal is to have fun and avoid injury. Breakfast runs are helping with the former and I've been pretty lucky on the injury front lately.

my goal was 100 and i did 108 for the month of January. my focus for feb is to get stronger on the trails and continue to train on road and trails for my first 50k in April.

66. Working on improving my speed.

My goal was 60, only got to 40. Will try again for 60 in Feb.

92 miles... Didn't realize I was that close, and now I feel a little silly for skipping one of my long runs.

151 miles for January Feb goals. Run happy ! Continue marathon training w out getting injured !

98 for January. Beat my goal of 80, but really wish I had pushed a little more for the full hundred.

182 miles in January. I missed some runs due to family stuff. My goal for February is the same as Linda Luthultz. Continue to train for a spring marathon without getting injured.

100 miles in January. Goal for February is to start the half marathon training as a coach and help lots of runners with their goals. And of course to have lots of fun along the way. πŸ˜€

Made it to 90! It's the start of a good year!

Wow! These numbers are awesome! I'm still a rookie ... I ran 48.

Goal was to just get into the habit of running consistently again. Only did 43 miles. I plan on doing 65 to 80 next month.

Goal was 100, got to 108.....ill take it!! First race of the year this Sunday at the Little Patuxent Trail Half, hope to some steeps out there!!

I got in 198.4 miles. No I didn't want to run that extra 1.6 yesterday :p . Yes, like Harriet, I will be tapering for Phoenix Marathon Feb 25

I ran 249 miles. That's for sure my highest monthly total ever (I didn't realize I was one off 250, otherwise I would have run the extra one last night! πŸ˜†) That seems like a lot, but I can't tell you how much I enjoyed every little bit of this past month of running (especially since a lot of those miles were shared with old and new friends)!

144 miles for January. Exceeded the first 5 months of 2016 combined πŸ™‚

to run again, so I will be happy with 10 miles!

I tracked it for the 1st time out of curiosity. 85. Which sounded good to me til I read this post! Glad so many are off to a great 2017!

I ran 50 miles this month; I really working on getting back into it

100 for the 12th month straight!

I walked 37 and ran 43 for a total of 80 miles with great company along the way.

It's very rare that I actually log "miles" rather than time or description of run. But somewhere just north of 80 miles, all but 8 of which were on trail.

According to Strava, I had 203 for January. My next race is the RRCA Club Challenge 10M, so I'll say my goal is to perform well there while representing the Steeps.

240 this year, down compared to 253 in 2016 and 305 in 2015, trying to run tougher trail miles this year.

Shoe question- I've been running in the Brooks PureFlows a few years (my mileage is low enough and I took a while off before and after baby that I'm still using the PureFlow 3s. I've heard the 5s royally suck, and I ordered some 6s but am not in love. They feel harder and loud. Can anyone recommend similar shoes to try next? I'm looking for neutral shoe with a drop of 4-6mm. ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Saucony zealot.. I ran in Brooks Pureflow from 2010- 2015, they changed so much I no longer liked them... I only wear the Zealot now

I used to use Brooks PureFlows, and moved over to the Saucony Kinvara. Unfortunately, the Kinvara 7s didn't fit me well, so I ended up ordering some 6s online, but I understand that the 8s may take care of some of the new problems, and will be available in March.

I moved from the Pure Flow 5s (my first Brooks; I loved them for a bit but it was not meant to be a long-term relationship) to the Saucony Zealot. 175ish miles into the Zealots and still no complaints.

Thanks! I'll check out both the zealot and the kinvara! πŸ™‚
