  1. Thanks Jefro! I've got to make NF a daily-stop on my computer to keep motivated and update this challenge!! My long run this past Sunday was 5 miles. I finished it, but didn't feel great afterwards. Did some time on the foam roller afterwards, and the next day went to a shoe store to get fitted for something better. The baller part about living in Boston is that I was able to go to a shoe store that's located at the finish line of the Boston Marathon! Definitely got some expert advice there (and was glad to give them my business since they are raising money after the bombing that happene
  2. Thanks YJ! Yes - I really have to crack down on the food diary and planning. Today was an EPIC FAIL - it was like a parody of what NOT to eat when trying to be healthy. I'm contemplating the Whole30 challenge, since I like structure and some clear "do not eat" rules as opposed to the vague "just be healthy and moderate." My mind works better with extremes :-P I'm hoping for dad-hood in the next couple years, and I would love to be the 6'3 34-year old running after his kid without getting winded :-) I think the only difference between you and I would be that I can never seem to grow my h
  3. I did a different 10K in July, but I think I'm going to try to sign up for the BAA Trilogy next year, and get teh 5K, 10K, Halfie all in one registration fee.
  4. Thanks Jefro and Liz! Yeah, logging food has been an issue for me for two reasons: I forget to log and I am embarrassed to log :-P I am still eating fairly crappily. But the running is going well, and hopefully the food will start getting good soon, too. I just need to be more planful about the stuff I'm going to eat on a daily basis. I would love to have a long-run partner, but all of my runner-friends are either much faster than I am or are busy when I am free. I'm looking around for running groups in the Boston area, or even NF Boston people who want to run together. Hopefully that
  5. Thanks Liz and Jefro! The points are critical for me because otherwise I find it too easy to say "weeeell I can skip this particular run in the training program." This week I'm up to 35 points, and I'll get 30 more tmrw after I do my "long" run (2 miles LOL) and the beginner body weight workout. I did a terrible job tracking my food this week (I'm using the weight watchers app) but that's ok. I'm giving myself permission to not dwell on that and just do a better job next week. Liz, I'd heard about Run Zombies, and I completely forgot about it. I'm gonna download it right away - thanks!!
  6. So far so good - two days of the Body Weight workout, and one "official" run of the training completed. It was literally only a mile, but it's what my program called for :-) I'm not personally a big fan of running, at least until I get my body into the habit of it. So these first few weeks will be tough - thanks for the encouragement :-)
  7. Anyone else running the BAA Halfie this year? This will be my second attempt - I trained really poorly for it in 2011 and ended up hurting my knee and hobbling the whole thing :-P Ready to kick it in the butt this time! Who's with me?
  8. Day 2 of the challenge - got all my running gear for after work :-)

  9. Good luck man! My first challenge too. I need to get some measurements and pics up here soon, too. We can do this!
  10. Is anyone signed up for the BAA Halfie in October? In a couple weeks I'd love some buds for the long runs :-) I'm actually near Jamaica Pond and parts of the actual route, so it'd be cool to meet up and train!
  11. Hey gang, I've been on/off the NF boards for over a year; I started a challenge in 2012, but life got in the way. Not this time :-) I signed up for a Half-Marathon, but I also promised to raise $500 for charity to run it! That means no backing out :-) Character Profile: Male, 30, 6'3, 210lbs, largish frame Prone to self-delusion, "underwear collecting," and coming up with killer excuses to procrastinate.

  13. Hey Kevin! Welcome to the site! I'm new here, too, and I think I'm gonna steal your "one new meal a week" goal. I keep making the saaaaaame stuff. Thanks!
  14. This summer is presenting me with some unique challenges, but nothing I can't handle. For example, I have 3 weddings in June, Pride, and a barcrawl today. That's a major drinking event on every one of June's 5 weekends. Yowza. So, Step 1: I have to be <b>saintly</b> during the weekdays. No wiggle room there. The weekends have to be my exceptions, not my status quo. Step 2: Go into each event with a plan. Today is the Fenway Pubcrawl; we do 9 bars that represent 9 innings, all around Fenway. It's a <b>blast!</b> I've decided that I'm bringing just $100 in cash with me,
