Goatneck has a few tough hills. Not to bad though.
I did the Goatneck last year I struggled on a couple of the hills last year. I am looking forward to it again this year to see how much better I do.

May 28th, Memorial Day weekend.

It's a pretty good road course. Some small hills to it, and a lot of fun to run. I ran my fastest 5k time on this course, in the rain. Lemme know if you're going to run it, I'm going to try and get the first part of my shift covered so I can run it.

I appreciate the consideration brotha. But the truth is that I live in El Paso. And unfortunately I have no immediate plans to visit the DF-dub. Thanks again.

The Susan G Komen 5K is in Plano on 6-11 at the EDS campus. I'm registered, but now have to work out of town that weekend.

I ran it last year and it was a blast. HUGE turnout, and lots of freebies, plus it's for a great cause.

Lot's of hot chicks in short shorts.... get behind one and use that as motivation to run

Firefly is just 5 days away! Good luck to all competing!

I plan to hit a target time in the 25s with a goal time around 24. I haven't been training like I should but shouldn't be too bad. Hopefully we don't have to put up with this fucking wind.

Good luck, man... I started the same about 2mo ago and quickly realized after a few 50-55mi rides that I need a different bike - ie carbon built for long endurance style rides...

I'm still going to enter in the HHH, will be the 100mi if I can pick up the new bike before then...

Doesnt need to be carbon but if you havent been fit, go to a LBS and get fit. The better the bike fit the more comfortable the ride.

No, doesn't have to be carbon, but after a lot of research, I've found that the longer the haul, cheap(er) bikes aren't near as comfortable, and most "mid-high end" bikes ($2k+) are carbon.

A buddy of mine let me use his Cannondale Synapse Hi-Mod2 for a 47 mile ride and I found that my Trek 2.3 wears out my upper body MUCH quicker than what a "nice" long distance bike will do for you.... Not to mention you feel far more bumps over the ride...

Bikes are just damn expensive. I have an aluminum and a carbon hour. You may find your bike is great with a different saddle carbon away post and carbon bars. I think position has more to do with confirm than most anything.

I'm going to get a CX bike soon and have two sets of wheels for it.

A synapse is a more relaxed fit bike, you are right there. but not all bikes are created equal. Some carbon bikes are made stiffer so just make sure you are getting what you want.

Dammit! I think my 5k was around 26:10...I'm not sure of it was because I had been in the heat swimming and running the dog all day, or from fighting through a shit load of people. But either way I'm disappointed.

Are we still using this sticky??

Well, the wife and I are doing these races in the up coming couple months:

12/21 Wed Night 7pm start time - Jingle Bell 5K Dallas (forecase calls for mid to low 50s) http://www.dallasjinglebellrun.com/

1/21 - Get Healthy Texas 5K Frisco - at only $15 if you register before 1/15, it's the cheapest one I've ever seen! Televised: http://www.dallasathletesracing.com/...lthy-texas-5k/

2/11 - Hot Chocolate 15K Dallas : http://www.hotchocolate15k.com/dallas/

Should be fun! Good way to work off the extra lbs from Thanksgiving and Christmas binging!!
