    That's awesome Em! I'm always happy when I can do 10 min mile, but lately its been more like 12-13! I would love tricks and tips to get faster, but probably just running more HA!

    I think that's the trick, Trina.... Just keep running, just keep running.... Lol...
    I think I'm getting a bit faster. I hope to beat my time last year at 45 minutes.

    LOL! Thanks ladies! The last 5K I ran was 33-34 (this was off trail, think dirt and sand and lots of hills - I was awful! LOL). I ran a different 5K a few weeks earlier than that (these were both last august) and I did that one in just under 31, it was fun! But I'm so competitive that it makes me cranky that I'm not better at it, and then I want to give up. These crazy people who can run 7-8 min miles STINK! ugh! LOL! Suzanne needs to get in this thread, I know she's a runner too!

    And Em I see you've done some of the dirty girl or tough mudder races, those look like so much fun to me, I might have to sign up!!

    Wow, Trina!! You totally ROCK!! I can only dream of a 30min run. And you did it on a trail, wow--the 34min!! WOW!!

    Yes, we did the Dirty Girl run, it was fun, more like walk, LOL. There were a bunch of us and we just took our time, the group after us caught up, LOL!! It wasn't super hard, the obstacles were fun and easy. I was talking with my cousin who did the tough mudder and OMGoodness!! They literally went up a mountain, the kind they need ski lifts for!! WOW!! Jumping in ice cold {{MUDDY}} water, climbing up super high walls, doing stuff like the monkey bars that are wet and muddy with pools of more mud beneath you! I could never do that. And I can't remember if it was a full marathon or half? But it wasn't 5k!!! lol.

    WTG Em!! Yeah, I don't think I could do anywhere near that right now, I ran a lot last winter/summer before then. Now I'm lucky if I get 1.5-2 miles in a week! ha! I need to get better at setting up a schedule!

    That Dirty Girl one sounds super fun!!

    That is awesome, Em!! Way to go!!

    My hubby is a big time runner...he ran collegiality. He still loves doing it and tries to encourage me to get into it, too. But, I won't be convinced! I am so not a runner. My kids love to do it though and he is loving motivating them and getting them going. He is so excited to do some fun runs with them this summer. They are 10 & 8.

    I will be content to stand on the sidelines and cheer and snap pictures!! I am super impressed with your all of your running, ladies! That is seriously impressive!!
