  1. Just received an email trail race has been cancelled. Was going to be my first 50 miler. The miles and miles I put in, averaged over 70-85 for a couple of months, hit 90+ twice and hit 100 a few weeks ago. Came home from my morning run only to get the cancellation email, damnit!!! Damnit ALL!!!!!!!
  2. 400s and 800s - at least once a week if not twice
  3. Congrats everyone on the Austin half and full!!!!
  4. I'm seriously considering the (as in I really, really, really want to) rim to rim to rim. Anyone done it or interested, please pm me. Not sure when, but I've read Oct/Nov and April/May are good times to do it. I'm not looking to set a land speed record, but I don't want to be out there for 16+ hours. I'm currently in the how the hell do I get started planning phase. Good luck to the Austin marathon racers!!!
  5. Oldest daughter was accepted to UT, Natural Science College. I was so pumped, but she feels the school is too big for her, I can understand that. She hasn't told them no, but it is not her #1 choice. She did get accepted to U of Arizona (good scholarship which would make it cheaper than UT for us), Butler, SMU and a couple of other schools. She is waiting to hear from TCU, Cornell and one other school, can't remember which before she decides. She did say TCU was too close to home and she wanted more distance. We took a visit to Arizona a couple of weekends ago. I think she woke up one day and decided I'm going to apply to some of the most expensive schools.
  6. Spent 9-10 days in Israel already. Came to Jordan to see Petra and see other sites.
  7. I’m in Amman, Jordan and can’t fucking wait to get on a plane tomorrow morning and get the fuck out of here. All the while I’ll be praying I don’t get shot down.
  8. Neonmoon - you should be able to get your body used to the long runs, build them up slowly. A marathon beats everyone up. My last 4/5 have stunk (according to me) things go wrong. Of the 12/13 I’ve done I can say 2 went really well and 1 awesome. Sometimes it takes quite a few before things click. 2010 - I would consider buying a used road bike. Not sure you will find anything decent to rent in Waco. Good luck with your training. If you have questions ask away a couple of us have done some triathlons. One guy on here is super fast.
  9. I have six acrylic magazine cases I no longer use, $25 for all 6 plus shipping (I'm thinking postage will be about $25). If you live in the D/FW area I can meet in the Plano, Frisco, Lewisville, or Flower Mound area I can meet you. They come with a foldable stand or they can be wall mounted. They will hold a standard magazine. I can't seem to figure out how to post a pic so if you want pics pm me.
  10. I saw that, crazy, she smashed it. Congrats to Jet Black amazing time on the Big Island!!!!!
  11. Just unbelievable. Now for Texas and Jet Black to get it done. I think age groups start at noon CST. ousux, Go Horns!!!!!
  12. Good luck Jet.Black - hopefully the winds are calm on the way back. Lots to watch this weekend: UT vs blowu , Ironman world championships, breaking 2 (I’d love to wake up and watch this but I just can’t this weekend), Chicago marathon.
  13. Running in the heat is tough, not sure if anyone ever gets used to it. I have found it easier over the years though, but I did swear off fall races. I used to have to take on water every mile or so, now my body doesn't start asking for water until around 6 miles. Maybe I'm doing a better job of drinking more water during the day, not sure, probably a combination of both. I ran 10 this morning and stopped at mile 4 to drink and then nothing until I got home. I do drink a big glass of water before I head out the door every morning. I live in the D/FW metroplex, the humidity is real and sucks. I'm looking forward to just breathing a less humid air. Bring on the cool weather and some rain.
  14. My BIL and SIL went to Panama for some kayak fishing, he caught a rooster fish on the last day and she caught the female world record cabrera snapper. I have no idea how that it is made official but they are entering the size in, whatever that means. You can skip to the middle or so and skip all of the reeling.
  15. I’ve done two fall races and have swore off them. I agree I’m done with the heat now. I too keep looking ahead for a glimpse of something. I’m outside of aggiesucks land for a couple of days on my daughter’s school trip. The entire day is outside hiking, canoeing and other shit. Why couldn’t the teachers pick a utter time of the year?
