Another Tuesday, another rundown...

As I think back to the last time I did this, I can't believe how much has happened in that time. I feel like I've gotten to know so many fellow bloggers, and having your support throughout has been very meaningful. I've been a little slow to get back on my feet again, but just having you guys out there gives me a responsibility to get back to training. Thanks.

Okay then.

The big race this past weekend was the (New) Las Vegas Marathon. Several members of the RBF planned to meet up down there. (They even made themselves matching shirts!!) You can read a nice report of this RBF gathering over at Jeff's site.

During the race, I actually found myself tracking the runners at the live "blogcast" over at Scott's blog. Some pretty impressive running going on. It's still a little too early to get the race reports, but I look forward to reading more detailed reports at Scott's site, Drew's site, and at PartyRunner's site. (See her sidebar for even more runners!)

There were of course some other races this weekend. Brent and Rachel (people I've actually met!) both ran the half marathon in Memphis this weekend. Both had great times and set new PR's. Rachel has a great recap with pictures here.

Buckeye Runner has a nice post on her race this weekend. Check out the pictures - it looks pretty freaking cold over there! (Also be sure to check out her 2005 race summary. Quite impressive!)

Quite a few people dealing with the winter weather these days. Check out Susie's proof that she's a hardcore runner.

For those of you that come here on a regular basis you know that I've had trouble getting back to running after my marathon. It's inspiring to see Alejandra back out there getting set for her next one. Brooklyn is also getting set for his next one. (Nice spreadsheets!)

Brent had his 30th birthday this week. He seemed to be stressing about this in the past, but all in all he's doing pretty well. He ran his first marathon this past year, and seems to be having some success in other parts of his life as well. (I can't link those posts though since they don't last long. You have to be a "loyal reader"!)

This coming weekend is the Honolulu Marathon. (Now there's somewhere I'd really like to go!) Leta is one of the people who will be out there at 5 am! She's kind of flipping out as it gets closer, so go on over and wish her well. I've got a cousin who's running this race as well. He's a grandfather and this is his first marathon, so that's kind of cool. Alas, he's not a blogger. Good luck to him anyway.

That's it for this edition. I feel like it's a bit short, given that there are so many great blogs out there. As I looked through the blogosphere trying to put this together, I realized that much of what I enjoy about other people's blogs is the camaraderie that we've achieved with each other. It's not just the interesting posts that can be hyperlinked into a rundown for other people. It's the sharing of common experiences over time.

For those of you who are uninitiated, and wonder what the heck the RBF is, it's the Running Blog Family. Look over this wonderful list, maintained by Mark and Aaron. There are now over 500 blogs listed, and some really great reads there.

I also want to mention Phedippidations. This is a weekly podcast on running that I listen to, usually while running. There's a different topic each week, some more educational than others. One constant is that it's always entertaining, and I look forward to each episode. Check it out.

Until next time...

Great rundown, thanks for the shout-out! I first found your blog through the very first rundown you ever did and it's so neat to think about having followed you through your training, the marathon, and then finally meeting in person! I'm so thankful for the RBF & everyone's inspiring lives every day. It makes the world feel a bit smaller and a lot more pleasant.
