    @Ren, congrats.  I'll be glad to hit that mark where I consider myself a runner.  I just have to find the way I need to run without pain.

    Thanks.  I am so sorry you are struggling with pain.  Every time I run and I feel good, I am thankful.  I know how hard that is.

    There used to be this stuff in our medicine kit at work called Pain Aid.  Was Asprin, Ibuprofen and a huge dose of caffeine.  Caffeine is a powerful drug.  One I love dearly!

    blessed caffeine..

     

    I took some energy gel on the bike yesterday that had caffeine in it.  awesome stuff but I felt a little cracked out afterward.

     

    I can't do ginseng though, it makes me INSANE.

    318  That is so great!  I've hiked Monadnock with my kids. They had to put up with my rest stops but we made it.  I'm still working up to the 5K. I hope I have the spring in my step that you seem to have.  GO SOX!!!

    It wasn't *that* long ago that I was bitching about the 6,7,8 minute intervals, either.  I thought you all were nuts for thinking I could do 20.

    Re: 200+ Pound Club!

    I don't drink very much coffee..  maybe one cup a week.  But I do love Diet Coke.  Bad habit, but I am cutting back.  Sometimes it keeps me from eating junk though.  So, there are worse things.

    I don't drink much coffee at all. When I do, I put a pack of hot chocolate into the coffee. But that is very rare.

    Re: 200+ Pound Club!

    I can't survive without my coffee, though I can put that first cup off for a while now.  Haven't put sugar in coffee in nearly 20 years.  I started using creamer after my dentist told me it would stain my teeth less that way.  The cream at work is 10 calories a serving.  The stuff I use at home is 5 and no fat.  All things considered, not a bad trade for not killing my co-workers.  And the coffee makes me feel full, unlike my 1 or 2 diet sodas a day.

    Re: 200+ Pound Club!

    So here is my belated 5k report:

     

    Morning was pretty cold in the low 20's when we left the house. This was the inagural year of the Veterans 5k. It was in honor of Capt. Jason Galus. His father spoke and thanked everyone for showing up.

    We get there, sign in was a breeze. There were only 90 people that ran it. National Anthem was sang beautifully. We went over to the starting line, and were off. My 13 year old took out pretty quick. I could see him but he was 300+ meters ahead of me. The first mile was great. Mr. Galus (Jason's dad) had pulled along side of me. We chatted a bit as we were both in the Navy. I had my bright NAVY shirt on. I tried to thank every volunteer at each turn. They all were cheering us on.... "Looking great NAVY, Keep it going!" I love being singled out for motivation. My boy lost a bit of steam and walked until I cought up to him about mile 2. He said he didn''t have much motivation to keep him going. I asked if the cute 20 something he was following dropped him.... he said ya. About .5 miles from the end he picks up his pace and I just wanted to finish. I sprinted the last 200 meters or so. His time was 32:43, mine was 33:32. As I crossed the finish line, they called my name and thanked me for serving my country..... that was a really nice touch. I was 9/10 in my age group, but near the 70% of finishers. I met both of my goals of running it in less than 35 and not stopping or walking. It was a great time.

     

    Here is a pic of us "boys" after the run..... BTW my youngest wanted to run it.... in his snow boots. I'll see if he wants to run the turkey trot with us. I am pretty sure he can do it.
