TPE, looks like you and i are in somewhat similar shape, and looking to finish our first marathons this year. My last two attempts were derailed by injury.

Will be running my 9th (i think) half marathon this spring, and looking to run 90 mins or faster. Last year i ran a 91 min half. I will say, that luckily my body doesn't hurt at all, and i'm 42. Will also be running again in the Chicago Shamrock Shuffle 8k this spring. I'm starting in the "A" Corral, and depending on this next month i'm hoping to finish around 30 mins. The shorter the distance the better.

Good luck to everyone this season!
Allstate Miami Beach Half Marathon official time of 1:28:58. A new personal record for me but slightly disappointed as my shoe came undone at mile 8 and I wasn't able to get back in the zone. Prior to that I was averaging a 6:29 mile and finished at a 6:47 mile pace. But a beautiful course on an absolutely perfect day. Many many thanks to jorgerunfrombulls!

Khmark7: best of luck in your goals! I know you can do it!

The new Asics exceeded expectations. Smile


Which Asics do you use?

I just bought a pair of Gel-Cumulus 15s, and I could immediately tell that they were superior to the GT-2170s I was using previously.

I think I need to move away from my Asics. My feet have been killing me lately. Trying my damnedest to get my mileage back up.

I used to run in only NB, but about 8 or 9 years ago, they started messing with them too much. I've been wearing Asics Gel Kayano for 3 yrs and can't say I'm a big fan. So, always interested to know what works for others. T Dub, what shoes are you leaning towards?
13.1 miles in 1:17:52 yesterday. Starting to get my wheels back, hernia be damned. Taking a couple months off was the best thing that could have happened to me. I am faster than ever. My muscles had kinda gotten into a rhythm over the previous year and a half. Taking the time off allowed me to re-calibrate my max.

Of course, we had to walk up and down some real hills, not the easy stuff that you get on a treadmill in an air-conditioned gym. Wink

Great job Seaquam! God's honest truth, I run about 8-10% faster on the street than on a treadmill. If you can bust out 10-12 miles on the hamster wheel, getting out on the pavement for 15-18 miles is a breeze.

Man, what I wouldn't give for some younger knees and ankles! A sub-7 min. mile is pretty darn good, TPE.
