What's with my Profile Photo

I don't understand what is happening with my profile photo, sometimes it there sometimes it's not. Now it's gone again. Am I doing something wrong in how I put it up? I'm just enough of a geek to be clueless.

Anyway, here are the numbers that I promised from my Tuesday 5 mile run:

Laps Distance Time HR Avg HR Max
Lap 1 1 mile 12:08 141 165
Lap 2 1 mile 11:09 151 161
Lap 3 1 mile 13:28 150 165
Lap 4 1 mile 13:58 148 159
Lap 5 1 mile 12:38 149 161
Total 5 miles 1:03:26 148 165

Not the greatest of numbers, but I keep telling myself there were two significant hills that I'm not used to running on as well as a gain in elevation of almost 2500 feet. The other thing it tells me is to TAKE MY TIME when we run in Vail, CO on June 2.


J~Mom said... are right, I don't see your photo again. Where do you have your photo linked from? That might explain it.

Your numbers don't look bad. In fact it looks like you sped up in the end for that 5th mile. :>) Great job.

Jmom - what I've been doing is posting a temp. photo into my blog, coping the HTML link to it, then pasting that to my profile in the appropriate place. I thought I was following directions that blogger had made if you don't have your photos stored on the net somewhere.
Do you store your photos on any particular site?

Randy, Lisa and I both use It's free and pretty easy to use. (Like how I answer for her? :P LOL)

I don't think those numbers look too shabby either, especially given the circumstances ;) GREAT JOB!!! ;D

Running in Vail will be a kick. Just take it a bit easy. The elevation will knock you for a loop.

To your question on my blog, I've been running for 5 years, but didn't start to get really focused until I started blogging and discovered this community of runners. There's nothing wrong with starting in your 50's. Your body just has a lot of abuse to over come. I don't know how much you weigh now, but I didn't move from the middle of the pack closer to the front of the middle of the pack until I dropped my weight under 180. Carrying around those extra pounds was literally a drag.

Stick with the program. You will get better and amaze yourself at what you are able to do.

Yes, take your time, and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate and then hydrate some more.

Not a bad run...give yourself some slack.

Looking forward to the 10K race report!!!

Ohhh Randy I forgot . . . I was LMAO at your "wet t-shirt" comment!! It makes sense though!!! I've tried drinking on the run with Gatorade and I feel like I need to take a bath afterwards LOL

I get a kick out of the visual of you being chased by a storm. I realize those t-storms and tornados can be crazy but the image still made me smile.
