Such a Grape Day for the Dazzler

Being a bunch of grapes was one of the best days ever. The amount of smiles and cheers I received from the runners was so thrilling that I felt so privileged to be that person, it was incredible. So many people wanted photos taken with them, it was amazing and thanks to Nick McCormack for the great idea of dressing up for each marathon. I can’t wait to dress up like Marcos Baghdatis next week, ha!

A fantastic day and Tristan came in with a massive time of 3:32 after being 13 minutes late, ha, but I’ll let him fill you in on the details.

Thanks to the wonderful girls of Jackie, CJ and Julie who hosted us for the week and supported us in the valley for the race. You girls absolutely rock and hope to see you all again over the year.

So check out the all the photos I’m uploading and I hope you all are enjoying the madness that is unfolding.

  3. Hi Mimi, I run with Prospect Park Track Club (www.PPTC.org) and I know there’s a pretty large cotiengnnt of club members that run fall marathons so you’ll likely find someone to run with. If you look through the website, you can get info on the club and also on our group runs (generally Saturday 8am, Sunday 9am and Wednesday 7:15pm, all from GAP). Saturdays are usually our long days, with groups going anywhere from 6 to 20 miles once we start building up the mileage for the fall. Feel free to show up at one and introduce yourself, that’s how I ended up running with the team. I’m planning on going this Saturday, maybe I’ll see you there!Rebecca

  4. it was nutrition-based iseuss. But, we are beginners. As such, we bring others in, usually, who know more about this sport than we do. I was just recapping my thoughts about the marathon. Since I had problems in the 14-15 mile range (which didn’t happen during training runs), I didn’t associate it with training problems. I had never experienced the problems I had during the race before, so I’m unsure where the issue was. Looking back at my training, I did the vast majority of the runs scheduled plus cross-training. So, if the pace I started the race at was the same as my usual runs, where was the problem, Joe? After reading your comment, I was immediately pissed because I thought you were just kicking me while I was already down. But I don’t think (hope) that is the reason you commented. What should I have done differently in training? If you are a regular listener to the show, you’ll know that I’m pretty transparent on my training endeavors. When I have a crap week of training, I admit to it. If I have a great week in training, I bask in it. I logged a lot of time on my feet. Also, what else explains the cramping in my arms during the race? I don’t want to poopoo your comment, but understand it better. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
