Rocks in Washington


1:46:39 10:40 Louis Moustgaard 5 M7074 70 M Sudbury

2:09:02 12:55 Jennifer Moustgaard 404 F4044 42 F Alexandria VA

Maureen Moustgaard 2 F6069F 66 F Sudbury -- 0:37:20

By Louis Moustgaard:

Last Thursday Maureen and I travelled to Washington at a most spectacular time: The Cherry Blossom Festival. Friday after a visit to the Tidal Basin to see the cherry blossoms we went to a fund raising event at the Canadian Embassy . It was called Race for the Cure which is equivalent to our Run for the Cure. Thanks to our daughter Jennifer’s connections we were invited to the event. Happy hour at the Emabassy was a pre-game warm up for the Capitals-Blackhawks game at the Verizon Center. Ovechkin got the 1st goal and the Capitals went on to win the game 4-0. Even though the Caps were out of the playoffs there was still a lot of energy in the building
Saturday Jenn took us on a prerace tour of the George Washington Parkway which we would be running Sunday morning.This year was the 30th anniversary of the GWP Classic 10 mile and 5km Run. Sunday morning everyone was taken by bus to the start at Mount Vernon, George Washington’s old estate.The GWP was closed to traffic. Jenn and I ran the 10 mile race and Maureen did the 5km. There were 5153 finishers in the 10 Mile distance and 1186 in the 5km. My time was 1.46.39 and finished 5/8 in my age group . Jenn ran with a friend from her running group. They finished in 2.09. Jenn also ran the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler the week before .Maureen was 2/20 in the 60-69 AG in a time of 37.20 and won a nice sports bag .
Temperatures were much warmer than we are used to. It was 65 at the start and about 75 degrees at the finish. The course was great but the the warm temperature made it tough. The only disappointment I have is that we didn’t get our free beer at the finish. You needed photo ID to get into the beer tent—no matter what your age! Have no fear. Re-hydration took place at Jenn’s instead.

from our Running Room 10k group member Karen Renout:

I wanted to let you know that Rob Marcolini and I were in Toronto on Saturday for a wedding and decided to try and get in as a late registration for the Yonge st 10 K.. on Sunday the following day. We were successful and enjoyed a beautiful day and the experience of actually running down Yonge street without traffic. My time was really good for me. 1 hour, 1 minute and 35 seconds. I ran the whole time and was pretty happy with the event, the day and the result.



Google Translate for Runners

We runners are a different breed. We have our own language, our own sense of humor, our own little quirks that add subtle nuances to the running vernacular. Below is a guide to common phrases used by runners—and the true meanings behind the expressions. You could call it a Google Translate of sorts. You know, for the running crowd.

“So, what pace are you hoping to run?”
Translation: “Are you competition?”

“Oh, you’re from around here? What school did you go to? What year did you graduate?”
Translation: “Are you in my age group?”

“Me too!”
Translation: “You’re in my age group and I hate you.”

“So, what’s your PR?”
Translation: “I’m comparing myself to you, and suddenly my confidence in my own ability is somehow related to your best time.”

“Wow! That is really fast.”
Translation: “I didn’t think you were that fast.”

“Wow! That’s awesome.”
Translation: “I thought you were faster.”

“My training hasn’t been great.”
Translation: “Training has been my life for the past eighteen weeks.”

“I’m just hoping to finish.”
Translation: “I will PR or die.”

“Nice to meet you! Good luck!”
Translation: “My new goal in life is to beat you in this race.”

“I’ll try to hang with you as long as I can.”
Translation: “I will drive you into the ground.”

“I hit the wall hard. I don’t think I fueled properly.”
Translation: “I went out too fast.”

“I don’t know what happened.”
Translation: “I went out too fast.”

“I was on pace for the first twenty miles, but then I hit the wall. Training wasn’t great. I’ve been battling an injury. And I just got over being sick. Guess it all caught up to me.”
Translation: “I went out too fast.”

“I’m just running this race for fun.”
Translation: “My eternal happiness hinges on the outcome of this race.”

“Yeah, I did twenty this morning.”
Translation: “Can you believe I just ran twenty freakin’ miles? I’m amazing.”

“I’m starving!”
Translation: “I’m hungry because I just ran twenty freakin’ miles. I’m amazing.”

“My hamstrings got a little tight.”
Translation: “I’ve lost the ability to bend at the waist.”

“My Achilles has been acting up lately.”
Translation: “About ten weeks ago, I blew out my Achilles, but I’m still running on it.”

“I took some time off to let it heal.”
Translation: “I didn’t run last Thursday.”

“Yeah, I’ll get it looked at after the race.”
Translation: “I will wait for it to go away on its own.”

“Yeah, I should probably see a doctor.”
Translation: “I will not see a doctor.”

“I get irritable if I don’t run.”
Translation: “If I don’t run, I may or may not become homicidal.”

“Yeah, I enjoy running.”
Translation: “Let’s hope I never have to choose between running and my firstborn.”

“You run, too? That’s awesome. What distances do you like to race?”
Translation: “I sense a potential threat to my age group/gender placement.”

“That’s right at my pace!”
Translation: “It’s on, buddy. Bring it.”

“I’m not training for anything right now.”
Translation: “I’m always training.”

“Today was a recovery run, so I didn’t even pay attention to pace.”
Translation: “I know exactly how slow I ran, but I refuse to tell you because it is not representative of my ability.”

“Today is a light day, so I’m probably going to run six or eight.”
Translation: “I’m going to run six miles. But I usually run further. Why couldn’t you have asked me how far I ran yesterday after my long run?”

“The race went really well. I felt good.”
Translation: “I had the race of my life. Please ask for details. I want to tell you how awesome I am.”

“The race didn’t go well. But it happens, you know?”
Translation: “No, you don’t know. You will never, ever be able to comprehend how awful it was. I cried. I puked. I walked. I had diarrhea. My body hates me. The sport hates me. The world hates me. I trained for four months for this? WHY ME? WHY?

“I think I just need to take a break from training for a while.”
Translation: “I’ve already signed up for my next race.”

“It was really hot.”
Translation: “You don’t understand how hot it was.”

“It was really windy.”
Translation: “You don’t understand how windy it was.”

“It was really hilly.”
Translation: “You don’t understand how hilly it was.”

“I pushed hard the last two hundred meters. I almost peed my pants!”
Translation: “I totally peed my pants.”

“Yes, we should meet up for coffee tomorrow morning!’
Translation: “After I run.”

“Yes, let’s take the kids to the zoo on Saturday!”
Translation: “After I run.”

“I need to pick up some more GU.”
Translation: “I’m one gel packet away from an episode of Hoarders.”

“….point two. Twenty-six point two.”
Translation: “Seriously. Forget the ‘point two’ one more time, and I’ll be forced to punch you.”
