The above list may give the impression I am very competitive but most of these are free club races and are really just an opportunity to get some exercise while socializing with friends and free food :-)
CRON: Caloric Restriction with Optimal Nutrition
Always happy to support other people watching their weight, diet, and exercise.
Thank for sharing those links about CR. So we meet again. As you can see, I'm having too much time on my hands (I have a super boring job) and am trying to find new goals to aim for, for when I've reached my weight loss goal.
Question for you: if you're practicing CRON, how much restriction do you do? And how has it affected your running? Do you 'eat back' all the calories you run (to the point of your CR)? Are you worried about bone density?
Thanks for contributing comments to my blog. Cost was a factor in my decisions. Those big races in Chicago do set a runner back. I temper it with cheaper local races. There are so many "firsts" this year, that since I have no destination races, I did bite the bullet on cost. This selection cost me just under $700, but with parking in Chitown, it will climb.
I will have to ponder your idea for blog topic. I like to read them more than write them, but sometimes I do get in the mood.
Hello! Thanks for your comments on my blog! I actually did comment back to your question on my Previous blog :) There's no way to get notified when someone does that though...so I don't think you saw it!
