I see

Ballooning is putting on weight

Haha.

It's actually a medical term as well.

ballooning. A descriptive term for the biconcave compression of the end-plate of a vertebral body caused by increased pressure in the intervertebral discs, usually in the lumbar spine, which may be seen in osteoporosis.

With all the old people on here, maybe we should do a health woes thread?

i'm 99% certain that we had a "ain't young anymore"/"getting old sucks" thread at one point but can't find it.

Montgomery County Road Runners cancelled all events through 31 March.  There is some discussion bubbling up in the larger endurance community that new guidelines will cancel everything through June 15.

I don't think we're racing any day soon. I'm running solo.
