TDC Runners Club

I figure we need a thread for all the runners here at TDC, so this is it. Feel free to talk/ask about your runs, training program, races, etc. in here.

I just signed up for the Chicago Marathon is anyone else here going to be joining me for 26.2 miles of fun?

As long as you sprint it and look like a complete jackass in front of everybody I'm game.

I was never a good runner, despite being a little fucker. I'm sure I'd look like a complete jackass regardless.

When we get those nice days, I'm out on the roads, not so nice days, no way.

Ran track and cross country in high school, sorta kept up some running in college and now trying to get back in again.

Beauty is where I live there are so many roads I can switch up the run and never get bored.

i could never imagine running a marathon. i do want to try to get into some 5k type stuff, but more than that would be tough.

This is going to be my first marathon. Up to this point the furthest I've ever run was like 14 miles and that was in high school so I've got my work cut out.

I just can't wait to cross that line at the finish knowing that I just completed a full marathon. I know that feeling is going to make the pain and misery all worth it.

It's one of my goals to run a marathon at some point, just don't know when.

Yeah it's on my life checklist and it'll be a lot easier to check this one off now instead of later.

Doing it younger is the plan. I just have too much on my plate to even consider training for one. I'll just increase my mileage and see how long I can go.

I did alot of running, and more rowing last summer.

I was never really into long distance races, but i ran a 10 mile race last summer and loved it.

Anyone ever use a GPS watch to train with? I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on this guy:

I think it may help get me ready for the marathon.

I've wanted the Nike kit for some time. Just don't want to buy a Nano to use it. I like having that so you can log stuff rather than use a watch.
