  1. Print that out and frame that sucker!!! You’re awesome, Dorothy :)

  2. I hope they update the snippet on Fitness and say “dropped her time down to a 3:11”!!!

  3. What are you wearing… used books for sale? Interested in learning how people stay warm before a cold-morning start. That shirt looks awesome!

    I’m wearing an old t-shirt I didn’t care about! I have a short sleeve underneath it as well. I slit the top and the bottom so I can literally rip off the shirt right before the start or even during the first couple of miles. Whenever I have a shirt/sweatshirt/etc I don’t like I throw it into a bin labelled as throw away clothes and I use them to keep warm before races!

  5. What do they do with throw away clothes? Are they donated to charity? If so, I think that’s awesome. Then I wouldn’t mind doing that so much. But I’ve never seen anything like that here in Europe. @ Mile Posts By Dorothy Beal:

  6. @ Maureen @ Go Iron Mo:
    I was just about to say the same thing!! 3:11 woot woot!! Go Dorothy!

  7. What an awesome accomplishment and super speedy time… and super inspiring story. Keep improving; I can’t wait to read about how fast you get!
    I think I have a similar running improvement “story” and HOPE that my training will pay off and I can get as fast as you in 2012 :) You help inspire me to push myself, THANK YOU!
