    It's about 45-50 miles from DC.  Unfortunately, driving time is about 45 minutes to 3 hours.

    Hi Carl.  BTW, how is training for the JFK coming along??  I posted a thread a while back about your training, but never got any response back.   Hope all is well with you.

    Snickers are always a good thing and cheeseburgers if you can fit it in your pockets (jk). 

     

     

    The 50K endurance run is down the tubes.  The trails really messed me up and now I'm still dealing with PF and very sore metatarsal bones.  Just basic feet problems.  I will try to attempt the 50K in the near future, hopefully.  I can't sacrifice my long term goals for the short ones. 

     

     

    I couldn't imagine running for 50 miles!!  Best of luck to you, Carl.  You'll do great!

    Ruby -- sorry to hear about your setback but you most certainly are approaching it with wisdom and sensibility.  And now I don't feel so bad for not pursuing the trail running thing.     I hope you are up and a running fiend soon.

     

    BTW, how's your bet with hubby going?

    Re: Half Marathon substitute for long run?

    I, too, am running a 1/2 marathon on a weekend of a long run (The Parks Half in Maryland). However, that weekend I am only due for a 13 miler anyway per my schedule. Seemed a good time to evaluate where I am at  a short time away from the Marathon. The following weekend I ramp it up again with a 19 miler.

    Thanks, Jerry!  It wasn't easy to give up the 50K, b/c I'm sooo stubborn.  I'm still training for the MCM though.

     

     

    The bet sucks!!  But we are both doing really well and going on 4 months, or something ridiculous like that.  The past month has been rough.  I think I'd be out running more mornings, if I had coffee to look forward too.  James is doing great without the caffeine also.  He has more energy and isn't as tired at the end of the day.  I think all the working out he does is helping him too.  He is biking, running etc. etc. 6 days a week!  And he's not even training for anything, except for a situp contest he's having with his brother around Christmas time.  Hee hee.

    Thanks Carl.  I plan on getting back on the trails after the MCM.  I miss running with Colorado Dreamin'.  She's the sweetest!

     

     

    The cheeseburgers are a bit tricky b/c they are bulky and you end up with greasy pockets ( of course I'm only joking).  I think some foods are better left for after a long run.

    ****, I'm gonna have to really plan our trip. See, we plan on going next year for the Historic Half, well I don't plan, I need to or else Holly would kill me. Anyhow, we'll probably be staying closer to DC since Brenda's sister lives in DC, so I was trying to see what would be the best way to get to Fredericksburg, or if we should maybe grab a hotel just for the night before in the area.
