Get up. Yeah, it's Monday, it's morning, it's kinda cold out around here and makes it tempting to dive back underneath the blankets.<br><br>
Get up.<br><br>
Less than 3 weeks til Philly. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/cool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Cool"><br><br>
I'm still feeling good about my 5K yesterday. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
And I wanted to congratulate <b>Alicat</b> on her 5K from Saturday. Make sure you give your ankle a bit of rest now, I remember the first couple times I ran 5Ks I gave my ankle 2 days off after them.

Good morning, y'all. How is everyone on this Monday?<br><br>
Nice work from a lot of racers this weekend. I'm sure there are some race reports that I haven't read yet. I'll try to get to it sooner or later.<br><br>
I had a good-enough run on Saturday. 20 miles in the rain. According to MotionBased, it was exactly 20.00. How weird. Whatever. Well, it's three weeks til Philly, so now begins the taper.<br><br>
How 'bout those Red Sox! For the second time in my life, they won a pretty stress-free World Series. I'll take it! And now my favorite teams are the reigning champs in my three favorite sports: Major League Baseball, College Football, and College Basketball. Has that EVER happened to anyone before? I joked about this back when the Gators won their second basketball title, and maybe it's apropos again: I should just quit being a sports fan now, because it doesn't get better than this!<br><br>
Well, I'm going back to work now, after almost two weeks off. Ugh. Oh well, I guess it has to be done. It does mean that I will have less time to post. I hope you guys can survive without all that much of me.<br><br>
Oh, don't forget to post your personal Philly prediction in this thread <a href="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12601" target="_blank">here</a>. You only have until Wednesday to do it...<br><br>
That's it for this morning. Have a great Monday, everyone...</div>

Morning Scratch...morning 30s.<br><br>
I have to report for jury duty today. I too would have rathered snuggle up under the covers and stayed in bed. I was so tired last night (even after napping for 2.5 hours yesterday afternoon) that I went to bed during the 5th inning and didn't see the Sox win. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"><br><br>
WILL.RUN.TODAY.<br><br>
Congrats all <span style="color:#008000;">racers and runners</span> this weekend...seems everyone got feet on fire by the times we're running! Maybe I need someone to light a match to mine!<br><br>
Penny is hiding again from me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sad2"> I put her ear drops in and now she hates me. Every time I go to the fridge, she runs away. This isn't fair. She's not even coming out for her breakfast.<br><br>
OK, gotta run. I won't be able to check in for a while, but I'm hoping I'll get home early.<br><br>
Ciao for now,<br><br>
Moe

<br><br><b>boB-</b> it's a good thing I like you and that you have a cutie-patootie of a daughter. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br><b>Observation of the day-</b> all you 30's wimmins who did the big hair thing back in HS/college... holy moly! it was a real PITA trying to get my hair back to normal. My shower took twice as long as normal as I was trying to get the tangles out. I'm so glad I never got into that style. Way too much effort on a daily basis. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Laughing"> Heck, that's why I don't bother with makeup.<br><br>
OK, I'll be back around later...

OK wtf. I just had a reply typed out, then somehow the browser went "back" and it's gone. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"><br><br>
Well, I had nice, friendly replies to everyone, but I don't have time to retype them. Sorry. Just know that I'm happy for you whatever happened and I wish you luck with your struggles! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Might run a few miles this afternoon. Not sure, since I ran a LR yesterday and I normally take the day off. I'm in a nike+ challenge where I need to run 10 more miles by Weds. morning. Decisions, decisions....<br><br>
Anyway, have a great week peeps. I'm pretty shocked it's already Monday morning again! What's up with that? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"><br><br>
Back later for the QOD.......

Got to school before 7am in a new black wrap dress that stops at my knees, cute slingbacks, all my school stuff, and a cup of coffee. Walking in the door, the fire alarm goes off. Turn around, stand outside in the 38* darkness with my co-workers until the fire dept. can come clear us to go in. Is it wrong that I'm totally thinking, <i>if they send us home, did anyone really see this cute dress? can i wear it again tomorrow?</i> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/dontknow.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dontknow"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Fire dept. eventually cleared us, so no heading home for the day, now we're just behind schedule. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)"><br><br>
Morning, everyone! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave">

Hey kiddos!!!<br><br>
Had a fabulous weekend!!! DH outdid himself with birthday stuff, he is such a wonderful guy!!! Didn't do much in the way of exercise except some really nice long walks with him. Also went to a lunch my coach threw yesterday, an end of the season party (tri season). Such fun, and got to meet this guy who has developed software that can accurately predict an athletes performance based on their workouts. Crazy cool stuff! And he works with some big name people. Best part if my coach is working with him now so he will have access to it and can give me more insight into my training!!<br><br>
I didn't get to catch up over the weekend but I will go back and try to figure out how racers did!!!<br><br><b>SOlar</b> glad people got to see your new dress!!! But this might explain why your students are so insane, beautiful teacher in a hot wrap dress does not make studying easy!!!<br><br>
I am not too thrilled by the outcome of the Series. Nothing against the Sox but since the Rockies swept myPhils, would have at least liked to have seen them win one!!! But congrats to all you Sox fans, at least it wasn't the Yankees!!!<br><br>
Ok, gotta clean the office out, getting all new furniture tomorrow and I have 8 years worth of junk to go through!

Morning! I'm still high from PRing yesterday! The top of my left foot hurts though, I think I stressed some tendons or ligaments or something. Ay! Getting a massage tonight! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Doing orientation stuff at work today, so will likely not be around for at least half of the day. Also, gotta find a good way to tell the boss that I already need time off (for Philly).

You posted this here and in the weekend thread, and both times you did not mention your little darling and wife. Tsk tsk.</div>
<br><br>
We picked all of our remaining herbs yesterday, because we had a hard frost predicted as well. Made lots of pesto to freeze up.<br><br>
My mini RR from yesterday. Local 5 K (about a 10 min drive), ran it once in 2004. Had secretly hoped for 24:00, though sub 25 was realistic, ended up with 26:45 (from my watch - official time was 27:01). Compared to a 3 M race I did in June, I had ZERO progess since then - McMillan puts the equivalent performances within 2 seconds. I lost it in the third mile, which is due to lack of conditioning because of my trips to the DL. But what bothers me more is that mentally, I could not push myself more. Very frustrated. Trying to figure what I can do between now and Philly.

Hi Lora! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_cheers.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="cheers"><br><br>
So the guy I'm holding accountable (and who's holding me accountable in November) was on a plane and in some waiting areas with the cheerleader from <b>Heroes</b> and her mother.<br><br>
So I got that goin' for me. . .<br><br>
Mornin' Gang.<br><br>

Good Morning<br><br>
Need caffiene....Monday's should be outlawed. I have a ton of paperwork on my desk, boss told me what he wanted done, guess I should have paid attention. Oh well.<br><br>
Congrats to the racers this weekend. I need to catch up on race reports and the weekend thread.<br><br>
DS#1 watched a <b>Heros</b> marathon all weekend. He is now hooked on the show. He has asked for the dvd's.

Had my first session last week. Second one is this week. Right now I have to learn all the equipment on all the trucks. There's a lot of stuff. Like being back in school all over again.

Morning folks.<br><br>
Wow... overall, this group just rocked on various runs this weekend! It's so great to read and share in everyone's triumps, and to also be here for support of those who just didn't quite get the results they were hoping for.<br><br><b>Scratch</b> - Aye aye! I actually did run a little yesterday.. only 2 miles. The legs were really stiff, and I figured a small run might help to work out some of the lactic acid. Things are still sore today, but in a good way. Tonight is a rest night, and I'll hit the TM again tomorrow after yoga.<br><br><b>Moe</b> - I had to snicker about Penny's ear drop situation. One of my dogs has an ear infection, and I've been having to use refrigerated ear drops for a bit now. She tolerates the drops fairly well, but the moment I pull the bottle from the fridge, that "previously wagging" tail just drops between her legs, and she gives me the most pitiful look!<br><br>
Okies.. guess I should get back to working, here. I'll check in later. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
