5 miles for me this morning. Really pretty but cold-ish.

 

 

While Oskar's sideways fang tooth came out yesterday, I never found it. Dh did this morning though, and saved it for me, "Sweetie, I've got something for ya!" huh.gif

 

Are there races this weekend? Any Bunny Trots [snicker] or anything?

Morning! Ten miles done. Better than the last two long runs, so I'm feeling good about the mini now. Come on May 5th!

Don't believe everything you think

Nice runs, ladies.

 

Since I did my 20 yesterday, I didn't need to do much today.  I just did 3 slow easy miles to shake the legs out. 

 

Btw, we're in CT this weekend visiting my parents for Easter weekend.  And now I'm gonna go meet one of my high school buddies at a sports bar to drink beer, kill a few hours, and chew the fat...

Hey peeps!  We had a nice fire last night and then slept in this morning.  Then the boys and I started making Tsoureki (Greek Easter Bread).  They have been looking forward to it all week.  Very fun.

 

My run is short today too, but I get company :)  James is doing 4 miles with me.  He is building up to 5, since that is the distance of his goal race, CrazyLegs.

Morning!  5.0M for me this morning on some very tired legs.  Found one more easter egg around the square.  ironically, for the same company as yesterday, and I cannot figure out where there store is.  Looked all over.  Ahh well.  I can do without the free koozi (or whatever the miscellaneous prize was!)

 

In a bit, I'm headed out to the yard for more work.  zzzz.  At least yesterday's gray skies are gone and it's absolutely gorgeous today- both in the skies and temps!

 

Have a great weekend, everyone.

ARG!

 

Why don't people think the leash law applies to them?

Yes.  This.

 

I ran 4 with James and he was so proud of himself.  We had a wonderful time and he didn't have a hint of negativity the entire time.  Great stuff.  He even said he may run a mile or 2 with me tomorrow to help me get through my 22 miler and to sneak in an extra mile or two.  love4.gif

Six miles with Tobey in 60 minutes. He was on leash!

I worked the track meet this morning, and when I got home I got an hour or two on the tractor knocking down the high grass. Then the run. Now I want beer, dinner and a nap!

Is Ozzy the first rock star to have his full genome sequenced?
Conde: Yes, as far as I know. I can definitely tell you he's the first prince of darkness to have his genome sequenced and analyzed.

Pardon my noob ignorance (looked in vain for a welcome thread or the like), but is this for runners in their 30s or for runners hitting 30+ miles?

Greetings, Orangeguy.  The idea was that the group would be for folks with ages in the 30's.  That being said, we've been together long enough, that a lot of us are now in the 40's.  Membership to the group is lifelong though, and we certainly don't kick anyone to the curb based on age.. regardless of age. :)    Feel free to hang out with us!

Well cool! Looks like I got here just in time ... 39 for a few more months. Is there an official intro I need to do or maybe you'll just get to know me gradually?

Welcome, Orangeguy!  There used to be a questionaire for newbies.  Does anyone still have that?

 

RIL, I'm doing okay after the 20 miles.  My legs have felt more sore than usual after a 20-miler, but I guess that's becuase I'm somewhat undertrained.  I managed 3 easy yesterday and 3 more today.  No big deal...

 

Happy Easter, everyone!

Hey Orangeguy! Welcome!

 

What a nice run with James, RIL! It's so awesome how active your kiddos are!

My running partner and I run with her dog, too, Duck (also on a leash!)

Nice runs this weekend, peeps!

 

We got back from my in-laws' last night. I never was able to get my run in. I just felt awful most of the weekend. I did get a lot of schoolwork done while I was hiding out in my bedroom. Hooray for that!

Gorgeous morning here. Well, it looks pretty. It's actually deceptively cold because of TOG wind.

 

A hair under 10 miles this morning, with TOG headwind the first half. PFFTHTHT. Last 3 miles = terrible, horrible, no good, very bad.  <-reference?

No. I don't know if the dogs live at the house or if they belong to visitors. Three weiner dog/beagle/terriors or some such mixed dogs CHARGED Oskar. They were hopping all around him and the girl just could NOT get control of them. They're lucky Oskar is only 5 months and more interested in playing, cause if he was an adult he likely would have tried to thrash one. Really obnoxious dogs, and not listening to their owner at all. She ended up shrieking for her husband/boyfriend to come help her. He did, and I heard her tell him that they pulled out of their collars. Um, then they aren't on tight enough! It's not rocket science! (She couldn't grab them because of no collar to grab. She still didn't have any leashes for them.)

 

They were very apologetic, but really? I just want people to control their dogs. It doesn't matter if their dog(s) is/are friendly, you don't know if mine is or not. (Ok, he is. But I don't want him traumatized this young and then hate all other dogs on sight.)

Some of us run long, some run fast, some are slow. We support runners of all abilities. smile.gif

 

Welcome!!!

Yay!!  Love the pics of the kiddos KJ!

 

HAPPY EASTER!

 

I just ran a hair over 22 miles.  Woot woot.  TOG winds here and I picked an insanely hilly route.  But I felt very good throughout.  This run got me to just under 67 miles for the week.  icon_cheers.gif

 

Now time to clean up and get ready for our Easter gathering.

Way back when...a long time ago (on another website far far away) the majority of us were in our 30s at the time.  We enjoyed a daily thread to talk about running and pretty much anything else.  since then, we've been through life and death, trials, tribulations, jubilations, marriages, divorce, child births, ear tube surgeries, car wrecks, meet ups, mini-meet ups, accidental meetups, almost meetups, and occasionally we've managed to run a few miles and even run some races together and seperately.  Welcome!
