Nice race, Michele. Were the first through fourth place finishers local women? Just wondering if this is your normal competition. I know I have certain ladies I keep my eye on when running races in Ohio...and now even down here in FL.

Everyone in the race is a local (Cleveland area) runner, so yes, they will be who I "run" against in the area. There are a few others including a couple who run 3:20 marathons. I still have a ways to go to be a bit more competitive, but I am getting there.

Miles of smiles.

Hmmm...I need to make a decision and was considering Monumental...

I have been reminded that things always come in threes - so you are safe from my jinx.

I'm really tempted to run Monumental so I can meet everyone but Nick highly recommends Hamilton and it appears to be a much faster course. I know that the average finish time and % of BQ times is highly dependent on the field of runners but Hamilton is consistently much faster. All the corners at Monumental seem like they would slow you down. I'm really leaning toward Hamilton where I think I have a better chance at a BQ time. I am tempted to switch though as I would like to meet everyone. Tough decision...

Nancy - if I wasn't able to drive easily to Indy and I didn't need Indiana as a state, I'd probably consider Hamilton as well. For me, the turns really don't matter that much as I am hoping to run around 3:45 and I think it is well suited to that. I ran a similar time at NY and I think Monumental is a bit easier course and less congested. If not, I've got Tucson in December. One nice thing is that if I do get that BQ in Cleveland, decide to run and get in, Boston allows you to enter faster times up through late March when they assign the corrals.

It would be nice to meet you though, but I might solve that by coming out to run Newport (or Eugene if I decide against Boston) next Spring.

Michele, I was checking out the results and noticed that your friend Bill they had an age of 44 for him. That would put him in the younger age qualification. Did they get his age wrong?

He'll probably be 45 by race day next year, which is what they use for qualification standards.

Jim is correct. He turns 45 in the fall. Another Cleveland friend (woman) did the same thing at Kentucky Derby - she turns 45 on Marathon Monday, so that is considered the next AG, so she ends up with a BQ-6, not -1.

Not sure what my family would think about me running Eugene...we're Oregon State Beavers (it's the ag college). Very Happy

Tough for me to get away in the spring but it might be easier once our son gets settled. He moved home last month and will be farming with us. Newport looks like fun.

Newport is supposed to be great, but apparently limited with regards to places to stay, so I will need to commit early which is often tough for me as early June always poses the school issue. Eugene has better timing being that it is April, but there is the lingering want/need to run Boston (if I re-qualify) even though it was not the original plan.

I committed as a 4 hr pacer with Bill and Angel who just ran Glass City. One of us will finish the race, and if it is warm, we have all decided that all bets are off. They also agreed to let me pull away from the group at mile 23 (and take anyone who wants to come) and go for the definite sub-4 and not just 3:59:59.

Boston, schmoston. It's so touristy! Eugene is the place to be in the spring! We Ducks even allow giant aquatic rodents in town for the race, as long as they don't make a mess of things and start gnawing on the campus trees. Wink

I promise that I'll be on my best behavior and leave the campus trees intact. Even though all three of our kids went to Oregon State I'm more of a platypus. I can't help but cheer for the Ducks...unless they are going head to head with the Beavers. Smile

In all seriousness I don't normally travel for races during irrigation season...April through October and we usually travel in the winter so I'm not race ready in the early spring but if I knew ahead of time I might be able to make something work for Eugene or Newport. That's a long way off...we'll see what happens.

Recap of the Week -

Strangely feeling good and suddenly running the paces that I was running last Spring. I know that I don't have the endurance yet though, but I'll be getting it this year as it looks like I'm going to knock off 4 more states in the process. And Mark, my husband really thinks that I should run in either WA or OR next Spring rather than Boston. Not becasue of what happened, but because he wants to go out west since we have not been to the Pac NW in a long time (for me since HTC 2007).

Mon - No run, Core class and weights
Tue - 6.5 miles done as 3 x 8 min with 3 min rest and 3 x 40 sec with 1 min rest. Not too bad despite the fact that summer showed up and it was 77F. Managed to do the repeats in 7:45-7:50 pace
Wed - Easy 4.5 mile; core class and weights
Thurs - 5 miles with 8 x 30 sec pickups
Fri - Long run 13.5 miles @ 8:50 pace. Lead legs for most of the run
Sat - 8 miles - this one felt easy and who knows why? 8:42 ave pace
Sun - 5.5 miles - this one did too, effortless and surprisingly faster than I thought. Just wore my normal watch, but I know the distance.

WTD: 43.5 miles

I was also asked to pace the Leading Ladies marathon (4:10 group) in August in South Dakota, and I think I'm going to do it. After all, it will be slow long run pace and it will get me South Dakota. Decisions, decisions........
