Char Gore is planning on A Turkey Trot as her post-cancer goal race. She said “ since our local one is canceled my family and I are doing our own too! I am trying to do matching bibs so we'll see how that goes. And my mom is crocheting our dog a Turkey coat!”
Brenda Haskills husband had a much-needed surgery and after a couple of rough nights, she and he both slept! Her Hubby slept and actually didn’t flop around because his nerve pain is gone and meds are helping with procedure pain. The next day she had a beautiful run in stellar sunshine. Stride sandwich for me! Amazing how you feel after a proper restful night.
Alicia Budd had a great run this Saturday. She said she’s “Still working back up after surgery in July and today felt like a “real” run for the first time since then. I’m doing run/walk intervals and they’re feeling great. It was also wonderful to smell bacon and laundry. Somehow those smells just make me smile.”
Coach Nikkia ran a half marathon this morning!

Hi, I’m unfortunately in a place with my body where I’m more of a runner interrupted than a runner. I’ve started doing some Pilates at home (we can’t go to the studio where I am right now) and it is going well. I know you have experience with it and wondered if you had any suggestions for how to have the best experience.
I’m needing some encouragement. I’m in a season in life where the most running I can get most days is 20-30 minutes and while I love it it’s not easy to even carve out that time. I’m feeling like I’m not getting enough running to make any real positive impact. Is there any benefit to continuing to work to find 20 minutes of running?

I ran a race today and as I woke up from my nap, I realized I had totally gotten out of any kind of recovery routine. Can I get a refresher on race/hard effort recovery!
I’ve been a one-shoe runner for most of my running life, but am thinking about getting a lighter less cushioned pair for races and faster runs and keeping my regular pair for everyday training. Is there a benefit to this and what do I need to consider if I go this route? Thanks!
