Around the Lounge

Traditionally, the third week of January is the coldest week of the year.  We enjoyed -13 degrees on Wednesday, so let’s hope the worst is behind us.

While it was cold outside, matters were warm and very busy at the Lounge.  Sixty new friends joined the  community you are part of and building.  They represent every running interest from all over.  Let us introduce you to a few new members:

Dodie, who is committed to running to deal with diabetes and other health issues.  SJTony also is battling the Hulk he calls diabetes.

RoadRunnerChick loves what she’s learned about running and now is enjoying ultra running.

EERunner is a club leader and is inviting his friends and members to join the lounge to better communicate with each other.  He’s set up a Lounge Group just for his Long Island running club

Mjjimenez is Mary who enjoys the shorter distances and last year set PRs in several races from 5 miles to the half marathon

Tonymaniac,  Tony is aiming to run 1000 marathons and he has completed 156 already!

julief01 Just started running this past summer and is planning to run her first half marathon this summer

Jcasselman doesn’t consider himself a runner, yet he is out the there enjoying and challenged by some of the same experiences the rest of us are

Carmen, a massage therapist, who ran her first marathon at the roast in Chicago last year.  She’s looking for a better experience and also to connect with other runners

These are just a few of the new members we’re meeting at the Lounge.  Stop by to visit them and introduce yourselves as well as to other new members. You can never have too many running friends!

New Articles For Runners

This week we added several articles to the Know-How section of the Lounge.  One author is anew Lounger, Annette, who lives and runs in Colorado and has written about How To Set and Achieve Your Running Goals.

Other new articles this week are about:


Selecting Shoes

Tips for a Healthier Core

Vitamin Power

By the way, one collection of Loungers have formed a  Lounge Group based on what they have in common--they're all employed by the same company and training for the San Diego Rock 'N Roll Marathon.  Way to go!  That's what the Lounge Groups are for!

Finally, Thursday was the first in an ongoing series of Take-It-And-Run-Thursday, which was a rich collaboration of advice by twenty runners on the topic of The Basics of Running.   Check out what others say is important to getting started running.   

This coming week's Take-it-and-Run-Thursday topic is Motivation.  Please join us to add some of your best advice.

It’s Super Bowl week, so hope everyone makes it a super week and may your team win!
