@neversummer ha!  Thanks!  In the past year and halfish I've transitioned to cycling/bike racing full time and now ride for Audi Cycling here in Seattle so the times I do lace up the running shoes are really only because my bike is in the shop.  It's incredible how fast you lose the running legs when you've stopped.  I'm not sure I could make it much further than one mile at my half marathon PR pace if I went out and ran today.

2019 was the first year in 10 years I haven't run at least one marathon in a year. Usually avg 5-10 a year, Also first in 5 years I haven't done an ultra. This will change for 2020!!

I've got an apt monday to get my knee looked at. Pretty sure I've got a torn patellar tendon to some degree, not full tear though. I think they will suggest a PRP(plasma rich platelet) shot, and idk what else. But if it works im down

Anyway just wanted to say I very much miss running long distances and can't wait to get back.

@BloodnThunder I hear ya. Getting back to it after a few months off since I broke my arm. I’ve been hiking in the meantime, but it still hurts!

@kkibbey23 Hoping the treatment works and you can get back to it! Any specific races you’re looking at?

I made an apt next Monday to get the PRP shot. Im hearing lots of good things about it and should heal the rest of the petalla tendon/ tear

Right now im staying optimistic. Registration opens up for Oil Creek 100 in a month and a half. It was my first 100k and first 100M, its a truly special race and I missed last year and would like to go back. I am thinking I am going to register for the 100k or 50k. Just have to figure that out as it gets closer. I will also put my name in the lottery for NY marathon. Got in the first time then had 4 strike outs.

Going to try to ease into things and see how it goes after the shot. Thinking feb 1 I'll try running and see if im better!

One of my college teammates decided to signup for a local 5k here in Seattle in February.  That snowballed into 6-7 of us former teammates all agreeing to run as well.  Most of us do not run at all anymore and the others who signed up are shells of their former running selves so it'll be interesting to see how big of a disaster it is and what all of us can do now.  I haven't gone on a run since August when I broke my hand in a bike race.  I plan on not running a step between now and race day so I'll have a bit over 6 months of zero running.  Not expecting a whole lot.

I'm a glutton for punishment.  And I'm genuinely curious to see what I can run a 5k in without any actual run specific training (I'm not going in as a couch potato since I cycle everyday instead).

@BloodnThunder Off the couch 5k has a nice ring to it! You’ve got the engine for sure, even if you don’t run much or at all anymore.

@kkibbey23 Hope the appt goes well. Report back. A friend of mine had that treatment (I think) for tendon issue in her heel and it helped her. Oil Creek looks like fun, I think you mentioned it before. I’ve also looked at Eastern States for an east coast race. But we’ll see!
We are expecting our first baby at the end of February, so that will certainly add another dimension to things, particularly travel (we’re in Colorado). I’m doing some training but haven’t signed up for anything. Time will definitely be at a premium once she arrives!

Just got back on the road last week after having an issue with my posterior tibial tendon for a few months...just got out of my street, was making a turn, stepped on a big chunk of glass, slid and rolled my ankle. Been wearing a moon boot since...


Good times.

Someone in my family has started working for a charity, so I've been roped into running the Bath half marathon...

@veeoh Bath is local to me and having run the Bath Half Marathon, along with my wife, I can say its a good flat route.

@den1mhead nice one, I'm mainly a cyclist but I've done the Bristol 10km a few times for Dorothy House. Gotta work on getting used to the extra distance! This time it'll be for Mercy in Action.

Good man running to raise money for charity. I'm guessing as a cyclist and someone who's completed a couple of 10km runs you wont find the half marathon distance too taxing.

I think I’m going to see what this is like in the spring. I’ll try to rope my 13 year old into it. It won’t be from the couch but Dec thru mid March doesn’t see much more than 5 milers around here. I could run with snow on the ground but I’d rather not. That leaves me the hamster wheel. Much more than 30 minutes of that and I’m bored to tears.
