Congratulations, drsoosie, and James Mansfield, too!
Did you run the Ventura Half last year? I think I see your results in Athlinks. I was there for the full marathon.
By the way, if you run more than a few races, you should check out Athlinks

If you decide to register there, for free, follow me and I'll follow you back.

Way to go drsoosie! I'm glad you had a great run! I haven't had a good long race, although I've still had enough ok long runs to make me still think about races, for a while. I'm glad you're out there flying the flag and that you got what you worked for! Excellent work!

I had a great LA Marathon.I was worried the high heat would be a problem, and it certainly made it harder, but it went super well and I had a great time!!

Hello All,
Just got signed up to run a Half. It's been a long time since I've done any substantial running and never for this long. I'm glad to have found this group and will absorb any knowledge of experience I can soak up from you guys.

Wow Jerry that sounds so fun and challenging! I might take you up on a long training run before the LA however I think my pace is well below yours!!

I just registered for the Orange Curtain 50K, February 28. As far as ultras go, this is about as easy as it gets, 5 10K loops along the San Gabriel River, the border between Los Angeles County and Orange County.

For anyone looking to step up from the marathon distance, this would be a good one.

Way to go Dr. Soosie!! I was signed up for a race in November but sat it out as a I sprained my knee in October, no fall/ twist/ trauma, it just "went" about 15 miles into a 20 mile training run. It was really sore along one side and then swollen quite a bit on the other, I got an MRI that showed the tendon running up along the inside to be sprained, told to take a few weeks off but I didn't feel in shape to race. I'm trying to get back to it but 5.5 miles on Saturday and the same spot is sore. Argh. I won't drop out of the club just yet but it's been a frustrating couple of years now for me. I managed a 24:12 5K at the local "Turkey Trot" which was a decent time considering the layoff but we'll see how the new year goes...have great races everybody!!

LA is definitely one of the biggest marathons in the world. I would like to do it someday. It's not going to be 2015, tho.

Glad you were able to figure out your wrinkle, drsoosie.

Let me know if you'd like to meet up for a training run some time.

Comment by drsoosie on January 4, 2015 at 7:57pm

ah Jerry I get that. I have always wanted to run in the city I live in. So far on pace with the training but had a little wrinkle yesterday. Nothing that new shoes didn't fix YAY!! Anyhow really looking forward to marathon number two!!!
