Chas' Info

An established master's runner in my late 40s and early fifties, I found myself challenged with severe pain in both legs several years ago. So I cut down on my mileage and quit racing. My last race was a 5K the Hendersonville Classic in 2011. Two years went by with numerous doctors visits. They all started saying the same thing. Your cartilage around your hip joints are minimal. One hip replacement (hip re-surfacing in July 2013) later, and I'm ready to push myself again. Long-distance ...
An established master's runner in my late 40s and early fifties, I found myself challenged with severe pain in both legs several years ago. So I cut down on my mileage and quit racing. My last race was a 5K the Hendersonville Classic in 2011. Two years went by with numerous doctors visits. They all started saying the same thing. Your cartilage around your hip joints are minimal. One hip replacement (hip re-surfacing in July 2013) later, and I'm ready to push myself again. Long-distance running is part of who I am but I'll have to stay with short races now, my new norm. I've gained 25 pounds since 2011. I joined Sparkspeople to track weight and calories in 2007. Now, once again I'm back in 2014 as I believe an essential part of running fast is in managing one's weight. I'm staying with my username, as almost every morning run and sometimes in the evening, I'm truly running with deer.
My current goals are:

improving my speed for the local 5k and to encourage friends and other runners along the way!

Sigh, oh, Chas. It was just my first run in MONTHS. My subsequent runs have been much better - little to no soreness. In fact, I only have 2 more runs at 3 miles and then I'm upping it to 4! Progress, see? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Chas :) Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my blog. I appreciated them very much. I did tell her my thoughts today and shared loads of pictures as well. We laughed a lot :) Thanks again for the comments. They made me smile :) emoticon LFOAR

Yeah, I know, I know about the treadmill running. I hadn't gotten enough sleep the past couple nights (middle of the night call out to work) so I didn't want to run in the dark when I wasn't focused.

I did, however, do my 10 mile run tonight outside, so wooo! emoticon

Thanks for the comment on my new picture. DS2 just turned 3. He is a handful sometimes, but is very sweet too. The older kids are starting to run and bike with me, it is neat to see the photos of you racing with your family.
