Mornin' all!!<br><br>
Stuck at work all night. <img alt="icon_study.gif" src=""> Such is the life of a schlub (sp?) who is going on vacation. Yep. You heard me. Tuesday - at the crack of dawn - we are catching a flight to Cabo. Of course, they are predicting clouds and isolated T-storms for the first 3 days we are there. too bad. I am having fun, and no one is stopping me.<br><br>
While the scanner was doing its thing (I am taking a couple of files with me - on a flash drive), I was able to catch up on a few of the threads. You folks are a chatty crowd these days.<br><br>
Hope all your races went well this weekend. I will follow the thread for a little while - assuming there are replies at this GAWDAWFUL time of day, then will try to check in again tonite.<br><br>
Be well!!

Morning all! Will have to spend some time catching up on all the haps from the weekend; I couldn't keep up with the thread while at my parent's home. We did have a wonderful trip to STL and a great time at my neice's baptism. It's so fun having all your family around you, knowing we don't just hang b/c we're blood but rather b/c we're buds! Coupla wicked games of a$$hole nearly had some of my sibs missing the baptism yesterday morning; it's rough being beer wench too. <img alt="sad.gif" src=""> Anywho, got some miles slated for today that I'll turn into a speed workout in prep for this weekend's HM. Will probably end up with about 10 for the day.<br><br>
I've got loads of new pictures too; here are two of my favorites. First, pilates baby...<br><br><img alt="" src="" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
And one of the girl that could sleep anywhere. She crashed while sitting up...<br><br><img alt="" src="" style="border:0px solid;">

<b>QOD</b> Like Brandy, on women I notice their clothes first and then how hard or not hard they're running. On dudes, it's their stride and/or abs (if shirtless) - I nearly always make an internal comment about whether I'm running the same pace, faster or slower than them. Competitive much? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><br><br>
And yes, <b>Voo</b>, being asshole sux - luckily my little sistas took turns being low man on the totem pole leaving me to BW.
I notice foot strike, cadence, high/low knees, crazy legs, shuffling, high/low heels, etc etc
None of this would matter if you were running without a shirt on <img alt="wink.gif" src=""><br><br>
Re: <b>Spring '08 Marathon -</b> I have no doubt sis #2 will BQ in Chicago so I'll go there to support her and would LOVE LOVE LOVE to do a destination marathon next year.
That's no fun.<br><br>
My focus would then turn to if I could run faster than you in the imaginary race taking place in my mind. <img alt="laughing7.gif" src=""><br><br><b>ETA</b> - thanks bOB's still there as a goal for me but really, sis is FLYING these days. We ran our LR at around a 9:05-9:10 pace and it was purely for me; she could have blasted those 18 miles out at 8:30
Lori - be sure to try some <a href="" target="_blank">Catdaddy Moonshine</a> while down in NC. There's a tasty recipe for Kitty Cosmos on the bottle <img alt="wink.gif" src="">
That's little sis #2 though it looks like it could be me from that shot. What you don't see is her very red hair and lack of the 35-40 lbs. I have on her. <img alt="wink.gif" src=""> BTW, meeeeeow on that picture submission for the 30s calendar.<br><br>
Oh, <b>KP & Tonya</b>, just got around to checking out your trip pictures - very cool shots!
We'd have to ditch Gobbles and strap on (hee hee) some of these... you know, keep the par-tay going<br><br><img alt="" src="" style="border:0px solid;">
Rain could help with clean-up in the case you do pull a Nettie. Jus sayin'
Sissy! I just got back from a nice 6.85 @55:47 in the crap outside; it was INVIGORATING. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><br><br>
Thumbs up on the no-puke run, <b>Voo</b><br><br>
Row, row, row your <b>boataleenie</b>
<b>Myron</b> - what about the pizza? I'd run a 20:45 for really good pizza <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""> Congratulations!!! When are you and the fam headed up to VT?
