Sounds fun! I used to live over there, so I love that I can picture where you are running!

From Lily on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 13:11:26 from

I've been sleeping like a zombie since the marathon. But last night, my chest cold turned into a dry cough. So I coughed all night, sleep sucked.

How's your legs?

From allie on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 13:26:21 from

lysa - there are so many great running routes around here. i love it. i noticed you like to run in millcreek canyon. that is the best!

lily - i haven't been sleeping well at all for the past week. first it was the pre-race nightmares then it was the post-race nightmares. finally last night i crashed for nine hours straight. that never happens. it felt so nice. and the dreams were good, too :)

i am sorry to hear that you are still sick with that cold. just keep getting good rest, and eat another cinnamon roll or two.

as for my legs, they feel great. i don't know why. it took me a full week to recover from des news, and even after that i was still sluggish. so this is a welcome change for me post-marathon. i'm just trying to stay in shape for the layton 5k coming up. i have so much anger for this distance right now. GRRR! i want a PR. you need to come run it with me if you are feeling up to it. it's on my birthday, which is just a few days after yours, so we could celebrate! do you think this comment is long enough yet?

From RAD on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 13:49:31 from

Nice to see such a wonderful recovery! I'd love to run a 7:41 for 9.5 miles tapered and feeling good! :) Gotta love a good sleep/crash. I'm glad you finally got some real rest. Now to punch it on that darned 5K!!

From runningafterbabies on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 14:06:04 from

I love that you admit you have anger for the 5k. I wish I was in shape enough to run with you. I would love to break 18 myself some day!

From Lysa on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 14:06:57 from

I have actually only run the canyon once but it was so much fun! All down hill and beautiful. I'm going to run it tomorrow bc I want to do it again with all of the leaves before they are gone.

Do you do alot of 5k's?

From Scott Ensign on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 14:12:20 from

Allie, did you get a comp for the Layton 5K? I looked it up and saw the price (late registration cost, but even the early fee is outrageous) and nearly had a heart attack. I figure a 5K is worth 10 bucks top for a low key one, maybe 20 if it is a big one. Then again, I paid way too much to run the carlsbad 5000 this spring but that will be a one time thing for the experience. But I will sit out Layton.

what are you thinking for your next marathon? Ogden? UV? something at sea level?

From ChrisM on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 14:13:43 from

wow 7:41 pace one week post marathon


From Jason McK on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 14:21:53 from

Nice pace so early in the recovery. Good luck with the 5k.

From Lily on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 14:50:12 from

I am totally PO'd at the 5k as well. That last one (minuteman) would have been perfect for both of us to chance it. Why did the course have to be a little short? I am so not happy every time I think about it.

And yep, I am still planning on running it with you. I will whip my eating back into shape and get outside this week to prep for it. Or else I might turn into cinnamon bun death....

Where do I sign up for this race? It's probably on the running race website... I need stop being so dependent on Allie from the block for help. Grow up Lily, grow up. Seessh

Oh, glad your legs feel good. And super glad you slept well last night. Lack of sleep is seriously the worst. WORST!

From Scott Ensign on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 15:06:57 from

if you guys want a really good 5K, the tremonton turkey trot 2nd week of November is perfect. the cost is one dollar- yes, one dollar, including a t-shirt. the course is perfectly flat and perfectly accurate with no traffic at all. a good group of local high school kids (16-17 minute runners) come out so there are some fast runners for motivation. they give age group awards of turkeys to the age group winners. I ran it last year and had a great time. My only worry is, I don't really think it is sporting to go back and accept a turkey as it is a local race with local people who deserve the awards, and with a price tag of one dollar I am just grateful they do it. If I run it this year again (I have a friend in Tremonton which is why I ran it last year) I will tell the RD ahead of time that I will decline any age group awards, just run for fun and a time and to try to PR. If any of you want to run it let me know. here is my description of the race, which has a link to the course:

$55- maybe they aught to take one of our arms as well? haha

I am still up for it though if you are. I can take the hit no problemo.

From Scott Wesemann on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 15:31:04 from

55 bucks for a 5K? Am I reading this right? That must be some niiiiiiice t-shirt.

Good to see you're recovered from the race.

From Jason McK on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 17:04:20 from

$2 per mile is close to my limit. I guess if there is a shirt included, I'll pay a $15 more, since that's really why I run.

From nevels on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 17:06:48 from

best bang for your buck: vol state 500k; entry fee = $0.00

From allie on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 17:10:52 from

jason - that was funny in so many ways.

nevels - 500k? nah.

From Burt on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 17:15:35 from


From ChrisM on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 17:25:09 from

the IEEE standard for floating point double and single precision arithmetic says 500/0=inf and inf is infinity

Interestingly what do you think inf/inf is? Well that is nan

=Not a number not Nan Kennard although Nan is a nan too

From Smooth on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 18:08:36 from

Looks like you're recovering beautifully! Can't wait to see you settle the score w/ the 5K! :)

From JD on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 18:15:28 from

Stop the mathness!!!

From seeaprilrun on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 19:43:48 from

That's awesome that you are feeling good. I hope you unleash a can of whoop$%@ on that 5k.

From rAtTLeTrAp on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 21:00:29 from

You must be really ticked off to pay $55 bucks to murder that 5k.

From Burt on Sat, Sep 25, 2010 at 01:38:33 from

Really? I just found you on the Lone Faithfuls Board? Really?

From Nancy on Sat, Sep 25, 2010 at 06:56:26 from

I'm glad your recovery is going well. I really like your new picture.
