Congratulations!

How in the world does the Dogwood Festival have a run associated with it now? And at this time of year with the amount of pollen in the air I'm amazed people finished it without sneezing up their lungs. 04-cheers

I believe this is the first year they've had it. One thing I have noticed since starting to run last year is that Atlanta has a super active running scene. There are 5k/10k/halfs/marathons almost every single weekend of the year.

Fortunately all the rain we've had the last couple of weeks helped keep the pollen at bay last Saturday. I have pretty bad allergies so I took a Claritin a couple of hours before the race and I haven't had any issues yet.

You're right about ATL's running scene. The problem is the heart of the season is June, July and August, which is crazy. I ran/walked the P'tree Road Race one year and resolved to never to it again on the humidity alone.

LOL Don't say that....I'm running my first P'tree this year. I've never done a 10k before but after my next race I'm switching to a 10k training plan and I'm going to do a test 10k in Kennesaw before July 4.

RE: Running/Jogging/Walking
Hit a new personal best on 5/2 with my 5k in Nashville, TN. First time under 40 minutes. I keep training and training. Eventually I'd like to get it down to about 30 minutes. I think I could be pretty content with that. Next 5k is on 5/23 here in Atlanta.

RE: Running/Jogging/Walking
Hit another personal best on my last 5k. Down to 39:03. I'm running my first 10k next weekend. I joined a running development program up in Kennesaw on Saturdays so they're helping me train for it. Maybe one day I'll get these things done even faster.

I'm trying to get back in a groove. My work schedule blew up my running schedule for about 6 months, and now I'm trying to shake off bone spurs and a strained Achilles.

Re: Running/Jogging/Walking
Completed my first 10k last weekend. I had a target of completing in 1:30:00 since I've never run one before. My official time was 1:26:27. Felt pretty good up until mile 5 where they had a nice incline for about 1/2 mile. I'm still struggling with uphill but they're getting better.

Running in a 5k tomorrow with members of my running club. They're trying to push me to bring my time down to about 35-36 minutes. It sounds like a lofty goal but we shall see. Hoping very low humidity in the morning.

Two weeks to the Peachtree Road Race.

RE: Running/Jogging/Walking
Completed the Peachtree Road Race in 1:23:53. Almost 2.5 minutes faster than my last 10k.

I'm running in a 5k this weekend then I've got two scheduled for August. My goal is to hit 30 minutes by the end of the year.

RE: Running/Jogging/Walking
Oh wow...no one probably looks at this anymore, myself included. But since my last post I've been running regularly, minus a few injuries for 7 years now. I've run countless 5ks, 10ks at 15k, 10-milers and 2 half-marathons.

During lockdown last year I really buckled down and got my 5 mile time down to under 1 hour. Still not the fastest runner in the world but light years ahead of where I was in 2014.

Hope all is well with anyone who sees this.
