    That's hilarious! I don't play games and I don't accept the game invites. Could use Hazel at my house too. :-)

    Don't know if it is coincidence or end of week lack luster as the week winds down. Who knows. I have gotten shots for the past 25 years and hve never had a reaction; yours will prolly pass w/ a good night sleep. Nytol. emoticon

    Everyone reacts differently. I got mine yesterday, and as usual the arm was hurting same day. Still hurts today, but less.

Hope you feel better soon. emoticon

Mainiac Triathalon

Sunday, September 14, 2014

I participated as the swim leg of the relay team Play Hard Tri Hard........ not my best swim; the air temp was the same as the air 61 degrees and an ocean swim.

We did as a team still manage to win the female relay award! Woohoo us.


After having been injured for several months this year....yeah winning is great but the real prize is being able to do it!

We have a couple of relay teams on our Tri Team. Too much fun! I just might have to do a relay as a change of pace one of these days! Once again, outstanding effort and very smart coming out of an injury strong!

Beach to Beacon 10k

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

Probably the most prestigious race in Maine - the race director is Joan Benoit Samuelson.

There are many elites that come an run the race and it is quite the event: Meb, Flanagan etc...

There race is in Cape Elizabeth Maine and ends at the iconic Portland Headlight.

After my injury I have had many races come and go without me - and I have paid my registrations and not been able to run. Expensive and frustrating. This one I knew I am on the mend but it would not be a PR,,,,I almost didn't run this one either ...........wishing to run under an anonymous name.
but
I swallowed my pride and ran it , Glad I did - I made it without pain and without walking. All Good things.... by far not my best but still respectable.

C U at the next one ----now about those times!!!!!!

    Congratulations at being still "in the race."
I just saw your picture of the Brian Boru 5K. After our trip to Ireland, I now know exactly who he was. Travel is broadening.

Peaks Island 5 Miler

Monday, July 28, 2014

It wasn't pretty and no PR for sure.

What a beautiful race though. Gorgeous day on Saturday and we brought our bikes with us on the ferry.

Ferry ride from Portland to Peaks complete with seal sightings!

We got our bibs - 4 of us running and my son as spectator. and our shirts and were ready to race @ 10:30 ...Hot and hilly !!!!1 Fabulous views of the rocky coastline in Maine. - complete with lighthouses (of course IT'S Maine!)........The scent of the wild roses and the clean ocean air ...fabulous!

The best part - MY injury did not hurt and I did not walk once! Of course I was Adviled and taped and iced before the race.. but I was SOOOO sick of having signed up for races and not running them!

Even though my time was NOT even close to anything I would be pleased with I managed to get 3rd in my age group. but the real prize is I am back running; the times will get better with proper training!

    Why do I always think islands will be flat? When I read Peak's Island I thought cool - then I read hot and hilly - not so much. Off the list.

    I just saw this post. Congrats, glad you are feeling better. Not every race has to be a PR, we were talking about this morning after our run. Sometimes the victory is getting out there. There are races for fun and there are races that have goals attached. Good job! :-)
