    It's supposed to be nice here in Central Florida this weekend, enjoy near perfect race/vacation conditions. :)

    I did 7 leisurely miles around the lake this evening to chill out. Never mind the training plan. lol

    Add 7 miles for me in the last 4 days. Just starting out training again in the last few weeks. Doing Warrior Dash and Tough Mudder this summer. Already have dropped 4.5 pounds in 1.5 weeks. Feeling pretty good while doing it as well.

    A virus got me this past week. First run today, 5 miles. Blew snot rockets everywhere. Cleared out the sinuses though.

    The weather is amazing, drteming. I wonder if a forum meetup/run is called for? I'm not running fast these days, but I can run 9 to 10 min miles for a long ways.

    ps - I live in a 'burb of Orlando.

    That would be cool, however, I'm going to be at a training course that runs all day M-F and a half day on Saturday. I was hoping to be able to run around the hotel at night if the area is ok. Otherwise, I'll be on the treadmill.

    Jeez, I just realized I haven't posted since Christmas Eve! I have ran 247 miles since then. Ran a 10K last Saturday and came away with a small, 4-second PR of 35:54. Still a long way from where it should be (it is by far my weakest PR) but any PR is a good thing!

    If I'd known you were so close to Orlando, I'd have said hi! I just got in from Disney last night. Great weather you all are having. Back home in VA, we're looking at upper 30's and a winter storm warning this evening. I'm missing Florida already! Anyway, the Goofy Challenge is done!

    +13(.1) on Sat.
    +26(.2) on Sun.

    And congrats to Scorch on the PR! Nice work! :thumbsup: You're right, a PR is a PR! I'll take one any day. :)
