    You just PR’d and I’m still sitting here in my pajamas. I’m on the West Coast, but still!

    Awesome job!

    Great job!

    And eating cookies for breakfast sounds like great motivation for me to start running more!

    oh my gosh- CONGRATS!!! That is a.ma.zing! I bet you are on cloud nine πŸ™‚ I wish my neighborhood would do 5ks. It would give me motivation to get off my butt on saturday mornings and really push myself.
    Glad you had a great start to your weekend πŸ™‚ Enjoy the rest of it!

    CONGRATS!! You are indeed a machine πŸ˜‰ First place in your age group is fantastic – but best of all you PR-ed, meaning you won the most important race (the one against yourself πŸ™‚ )

    Oh, and on the cookie thing. It reminded me of how they always eat pastries during the Tour de France for fuel. Just as good as any of the fancy sports bars out there!

    i am with you on the homemade bars, search allrecipes for granola bars, i have made two batches and we loved both. dried blueberries and cranberries in one!

    i just got back from a great 20 mile run, glad you got another pr!

    Congrats on the PR! You are such an inspiration {especially as I am really struggling with my own running right now}.

    I love the idea of a cookie as running fuel. I think I might try this in the next few weeks. Like you said, they are just like clif bars without the healthy wrapper disguise.

    You really inspired me with this post! I ran a 10K this morning, and during the race I got pretty tired and sore. I kept thinking about how hard you pushed yesterday, and I kept plugging away. I ended up with a PR for the 10K distance. My previous PR was from 2005! Thanks for the encouragement!
