For those of you who have yet to register but are still considering running the Seattle Marathon (11/30), take note that Wednesday (10/15) is the last day to register at the $90 price, then it jumps to $100...

If you're cheap (like me) you may want to consider signing up at your favorite local running store as opposed to online in order to avoid the $6.85 active.com fees.

Register online and/or find a list of where to register in person here:

My first Seattle race was the Dawg Dash 10K this morning and I saw a guy running barefoot (I was too chicken to race a 10K barefoot so I wore my Vibram's). The race was otherwise uneventful; I ran a 59:00 which is okay for me given training and hills. They ran out of water at the finish just as I got there, but the Chipotle chips and salsa were the best-tasting I've ever had.

Soooo... This place has been pretty quite as of late... but now it's fall again so let's get posting, huh?

What are you training for?
Who's running what?
Anything to report from summer?

Here's my '08 (so far)... since running my first marathon in Nov. '07 (Seattle!) , I've run four more marathons, two 50Ks, and two 50 Milers (all in '08). My last race was Michelle's Grande Ass Marathon at the end of August, I PRed with a time of 3:37 and came in 2nd over all (obviously the 'field' was quite small). Since then I've had two races I planned on doing fall through, the first was canceled and the other's date changed making it impossible for me to attend. I'm using the free time to my advantage though by upping my weekly mileage and planning out one hell of a fall/winter schedule... specifically 13 marathons (or 50Ks) in 12 weeks (those details can be seen HERE).

But enough about me, what's going on seattle_runners ?

Anyone planning on running Seattle (half or full) this year? Maybe taking a stab at trial running out at Bridal Trails? Taking a refreshing plunge come New Years day at the Resolution Run?

Somebody must be out there doing some running, right?

Excuse this interruption for commerce . . . yes, it's one of those "Buy My Stuff . . . Please" posts.

When I was training for my very first marathon in May, I bought a ton of various food/fuel products. I was so proud of myself - I had a system set up to know just how many of what product I would need for each run I was going to do up to the day of the actual marathon. Armed with my high-tech list, I went into REI and bough massive quanties of product.

Now, it's the end of August, and I realized that I still have a ton of product left, and REI won't take it back.

Below the cut is the list of what I have - if you're interested in it, you can have it all for $20 - I'll even ship it anywhere within the US for an additional $5. There's nothing wrong with it, it's just stuff that I'm not going to use.

Thanks!

Hi all,

Just in case you missed it, the newest "Rock 'n' Roll" brand marathon has been announced, it'll be the SeaFair Marathon in Seattle on 6/27/09... as part of their promotion of the event, they are offering half price registration, for both the marathon and the half, today until midnight (Pacific Time). After midnight prices soar to $95 for the marathon and $80 for the half (what ever happened to early bird prices?).

Find it here: www.rnrseattle.com

Furry 5k! [Jun. 8th, 2008|08:18 am]

Whoo! My first race of the year. :) This was my inaugural race and I intend on running it every year. This year marks the third one. :D

Though a PR of a sub-40 5k would be nice, my only solid goal, since I haven't been concentrating on speed as much as I should have, is to run the whole thing, including the hill (I mistyped hell at first, which makes a whole lot of sense!) at mile 2. :)

Hi all, here's a little last minute plug for the (ENTIRELY FREE!!!) Green River Marathon (and relay, and half, and 5 mile, and 2.5 mile) this Saturday.

As of right now there are little over 200 and some odd folks running various distances, with the full marathon going from Kent to Alki (West Seattle)!

I'll be there, any of you?

I ran my first 50 Miler this weekend, the Mt Si 50 Mile!  I finished in 9 hours 22 minutes and change. If you'd like to read my (poorly written) race report, it can be found HERE. Congrats to all of you who raced this past weekend!
