Gary,
You are so fantastic, positive energy, and inspiration! I am so happy you are in this world and I am lucky enough to know you!
Hope you had a great run this morning! I really wish I could have been there with you all. I couldn't get away as I had hoped.
You are super wonderful times a million, Gary!
Stellar runner and person you are!
Can't wait to see you soon!

Wonderful Gary,
You are a sweetheart and the kindest!!
Gary, I hope I can make it tomorrow morning to run with you and David! I really miss you and would love to see and talk with you, Gary!
I actually saw David today on the Woodlake trails when I was running one direction and he was going the other way!
You are amazing and outstanding to run the long miles swift and strong tomorrow! You are inspiration, Gary!

Hi Gary!
Are you running the MTT Sat. morning tomorrow? I am wondering if you know the route, maybe I can jump[ in and run about 5 miles with you all for some motivation since I haven't been running. Hope you have a great Friday!

Gary, Hello! I am so glad you had a great run at Pocahontas! You are right--it is wonderful there! You did fantastic today!
I wish I could be at Patrick Henry, but I can't make it. If you are running, I will be cheering for you! You'll have so much fun! I volunteered it last year and got a great spot on the railroad tracks at miles 6 where I could see all the runners and cool train scenery!
You are the best and nicest, Gary! Looking forward to running with you!

Wonderful Gary, Hello! I saw just now ( 10 a.m. Sunday) your message about Pocahontas! I hope you had the most fantastic run there if you were able to make it this morning!
I ended up running on Hull St. near home for a quick 40 min., but I loved it yesterday at the park to see the trees. I went later in the day and ran for about 40 min. on that mt. bike trail off the main path.
I really needed and enjoyed that serenity of the woods.
Hope to see and run with you soon. Maybe next weekend!
Take care and wishing you fantastic week!

I'm sure it was her! Lucky you running in Corolla this week! Fan Group ran in the rain last night. Turned out to be great for a run!

Hello Gary! I am hoping to make it Sunday for their run to do a few of the miles! I forgot you have the MTT!
It was so great to see you the other night, and I look forward to some fall Pocahontas runs with you!
I didn't run the Moonlight--I was there to volunteer. I had to leave earlier than expected. Getting soaked triggered my son's autism and he had a bit of a devastating meltdown. Lucky for me the rain hid my tears. It was quite embarrassing. He is so wonderful and I love him with my entire being, so I felt terrible people had to see him at his worst when he is so fantastic 99% of the time.
Hope you have a great run with the MTT! You are always kindness, wonderful, and the best, Gary!! Wishing you lovely weekend!

Hi, Gary! I got the wrong day for the Pocahontas run! They are doing it on Sunday the 15th, and not Saturday! I think they are starting at 6:30 a.m. by the pool. I am going to try to be there! It was so nice to see you at the Moonlight! You are always wonderful wonderful!

That was a great time...funny you were surprised. I know of someone else who was 1st in his age group for the first time EVER. That was so cool.

HOT HOT HOT...is a big NOT NOT NOT for me, but thank goodness for the trees and the breeze. I was a big bucket of sweat at the end, though. Hard to find a decent picture of in that race, except one that my husband took at the end, where I was waaaayyy far away.

I'm doing the Patrick Henry half marathon training team now. I'm doing that, mainly, just to build endurance to increase my race options. I'm not fast at all, but just enjoy the scenery and the "rush" and challenge of races...more than anything--just seeing people out there and getting a training run out of the way.

I may transfer over the marathon training team, possibly, if someone else from my current team does--they build up such a bond prior to when I would join.

Whenever you're feeling like you kinda want to "walk"...ha...I'll run with you. The best times for me would be Tuesday morning or Thursday morning/night.

I did a 9 minute pace for 3 miles yesterday, and I thought I'd die at the end, but that's good for me, all things considered. I'd like to be at a flat 9 pace for about 10-13 miles in the future, and then I'll be totally cool with that.
