Anyone remember me?

Post by Jule » Wed, 19 Jun 2002 01:47:58


If not, doesn't matter - just wondering.  Anyway - I've started shuffling
again, not having moved at all since I did the Great South Run last October.
But I've rediscovered the joys of fresh air and waddling and was delighted
to find that I've not had to start *entirely* from scratch! Pretty near,
though! :o)
A brief recap:
41, female, very experienced beginner, overweight, slow, devotee of the HRM
and of John 'The Penguin' Bingham.
And I remember how motivated you all made me and kept me, so I'm relying on
you to do it again.

  Welcome back.  I recall your efforts at 'joggling' along.  Good
luck on the return.

Yep, I was wondering about you (and several others) the other day that
had made great progress and didn't hear from them again. Wondering
whether they had kept up on their own or dropped out of running. Glad to
hear your back! :)

No, I don't seem to recall.

BTW; did you ever get to the Jade Garden in St. Albans? After the race.

Cheers, and we're counting on you to add your unique bit of sparkle to r.r.

If you rely on others for motivation you'll quit again. It's got to come
from you.

Yes - I remember you, but I always thought you were male (sorry!).

What do you mean by waddling?  Do you run in the mud?

Hi Jules, of course we remember you!! It's great to see you
back at rec.running. ;-) "Muscle memory" is a very real
phenomenon - you'll be back way faster than the first time
around.

cheers,

Jules,

Sure I remember you. Not the face - for some reason I can't place the
face. <g>Anyway, congrats and I hope we can keep you motivated.

I'm trying for a triathlon this year, as well as the Chicago marathon
where I'm hoping to set a PR. It's a cooler marathon than Pittsburgh
or Kona.

Photos of Pittsburgh, Kona, and a college shot are at:

BTW: The diabetes is still under excellent control!

Welcome back, Jules.  If you have any specific questions, just ask.
This group is all about motivating each other to be the best joggers we

inspirational words of the great folks in here.   Regards, Anne

How very gratifying! :o)

I'm not setting any race goals at the moment, though I shall once I'm back
to doing 5k within the hour (kidding! Just...)
Even more spurred on by having got up at some ungodly hour on Sunday to go
and support a friend in the Windsor Triathlon.
She's a 46-year-old mum and she qualified for the World Championships in
November! As I can't swim or ride a bike, that's a bit of an unrealistic
goal for me, but it still did the heart good to watch lots of middle-aged
people, many of whom were of a similar physical make-up to me, pumping their
way around the Olympic course.

And so off I waddle (yes, through mud, but mostly coz I 'run' like a
penguin), laughing - as I strap on my
superdoubleconcretestrapemdownorblackmyeyes sports bra - at the fact that
someone thought I was a fella...
