Take It and Run Thursday: Running and Weight

CiTake_it_and_run_thursday_2 Welcome to Take It and Run Thursday! 

It's our way to bring together the knowledge of all of us ordinary runners.  It's the virtual equivalent to putting our virtual heads together.  Even though many of us aren't elite athletes, coaches or authors, it doesn't mean that we haven't earned a well deserved PhD in running.   Whether you are starting out, have 50 years of running under your belt or somewhere in between - all of us have lessons learned that make us wiser and better runners.  

Today's theme is ....   Running and Weight.   Getting down to or maintaining your ideal running weight seems to be a common challenge for most runners.  And it's time we take it on in the Lounge.  Share your tips of how you determined your perfect running weight and maintain it.  We are also really interested in your weight loss tips and stories.  Especially as we go into fall and winter (and the dreaded little candy bar time of the year), we would love to know how you get through temptations and other food challenges.

Just fill in your name/title of your post and your URL below.

Next weeks theme is ....  Choose Your Superpower.  This week's TIaRT theme comes from Runatthemouth.  She suggested it would be fund to find out, "what superpower runners would have if they could?  Sure, speed would be nice, but it seems like as a group we would get more creative than that.  A shield to keep the rain out.  The ability to stay warm or cool.  I could see triathletes wanting to have Superman's trick of instantly changing clothes in handy phone booth."  With Halloween just around the corner, it seemed only fitting that we bring our wishes, imagination and even costumes to next week's TIaRT.  Share your most imagined running superpower in words (or even pictures).

Mine isn't so much how to determine an ideal weight, but how to eat ideally to determine your weight.

I know, pretty deep (ha).

Anyways, I dug up this old post since I think it's appropriate. Enjoy!


I cheated, mine's about why I keep the weight off (to run faster!) more than how.

But thanks for another fabulous topic!


I struggle with the winter months, I tend to hibernate, I'm hoping I can just maintain through the winter. Great topic!


I've lost 85 lbs, but I'm still not at my "perfect running weight." Hopefully by the time I hit 100 lbs lost, I'll be close. I included before & after pictures in my entry, too. Good times!

I definitely need to look up that chicken recipe for my girls! Those roasted veggies look delicious, too
