Okay, I've been blogging about running for almost as long as I've been running. I was on Typepad, then moved over to Blogspot, and now I'm playing around with Active's blog... if it automatically posts my races and results and provides a simple way to connect with other runners, then I'm all over it.
I just ran a 10K in my neighborhood last week - Run for Research in Atlanta. It was a hilly route and a double 5k loop, not my favorite kind of route. I did okay for me considering the hills, my recent lack of any real training, and the burger and three beers I had the night before. 56 minutes - just over a 9 minute pace.
I was really hoping I'd win one of the raffles - they were giving away free weekends in Toronto, Boston, Philly, and more thanks to the Four Seasons hotel and Delta airlines. No luck this time, but with as many prizes as they give away and as small as this race is, I'll try my luck again next year.
I just signed up for the Atlanta half-marathon training program through the Big Peach. It's not that I need the help training per se, I've run a few halfs and a couple of fulls on my own already, but I do want to meet other runners and it seems like a good way to do it. I've missed the first two runs, but will meet them for the first time this coming Saturday.
This has been a test of the active.com blogging system. Thank you!
