Thank for sharing those links about CR. So we meet again. emoticon 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.

Thanks for the comments on my for for runners blog. On longer runs, I have thought out whole menus, shopping lists, ice cream flavors, and many others to get me through the miles. Take care!

There's no way to get notified when someone does that I don't think you saw it!
