Rundown

Time for another Rundown...

First of all, this has been a tough week for America. Hurricane Katrina ripped through Mississippi and Louisiana, leaving behind utter devistation. A lot of people commented about how difficult it was to run this week, and even more so, to write about running. I think Wil really put it into perspective nicely, and told us why she was running. In any case, they certainly need a lot of help there, and if you would like to make a donation, you can do so here.

In other news, August has now come to a close. With it, several runners have reported on their monthly totals. Flatman has a great picture of his log. Other runners had the opportunity to make into triple digits this month. Meredith reports this rather matter-of-factly, while Drew tells us what it's like to go over 100 for the first time.

Some people also went on some great runs this past week. Richard reports on his 10 mile time trial, and Stephanie tells us she deserves a holiday after her 20 miler!

At the other end of the spectrum, Hutch is just getting started on his plans to run a marathon. Good luck Hutch!

Several RBF members had a reuninon this week in New Haven. Read Sarah's report here, David's report here, and Susan's report here. Jon even shows off some of his chocolate cookies! Also be sure to read their post-race reports here, here, here, and here. Count on Dianna for the loonngg (and at times quite personal) race report. Congratulations guys! Sounds like you had a blast. We're all coming next time...

Some of us had some tougher moments this week. My heart goes out to Wil after reading about her experience at her most recent triathlon. I too had a tough week, having to cut back on my running due to injury. At least it's reassuring to read about Jeff, who seems to have come back successfully after his own injuries. (In somewhat related news, Jeanne too found herself exhausted this week. But it wasn't from running. It was from giving her blog a makeover!)

One really great post this week showed Chandra having a hysterical moment of psychosis, posting all her pressing questions. (I was LMAO at each "will i DIE???")

Finally, congratulations to Alison on having her blog mentioned in this month's Runner's World.

That about does it for this week. Looking forward to more good news than bad this week, and more great posts.

Run along now...

Hey Danny
Air Nimbus VIIs; are those your first Nimbuses? Was hoping to get a comparison between the VI and the VII.

Also your first Marathon. Best of Luck. Keep up the training and you will hit 26.2 easily
