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!!

Wasn't it Eddie Murphy that said he could tell when gay men were looking at his @ss because it would get hot. I guess the same kind of thing huh?<br><br>
Does it work the same if I take a mental picture and look at that? <img alt="cool.gif" src="">
Okay, must buy darker/more mirrored/x-ray proof sunglasses.<br>
I think that women share the 6th sense. . .<img alt="wink.gif" src=""> But, you're right, you just know.
Fly by......<br><br><b>Alicat</b>- I'm with you me likey snakes. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><br><br><b>Doc Chris</b> - no Worries, no chance of someone mistaking you for 'good'. heh.
Yeah, gotta love the doomsday runners/non-runners. I think my dad is waiting for me to crash.<br>
On a similar note, I have a pretty strong competitive streak, but try to set it aside when I run a race. I always run against myself - everyone else is there for drafting/motivation/entertainment only. Anyway, I have a had a few mid-race "I've been trying to catch you for the past (x) miles", or, post-race "I tried to catch you for the last (x) miles". Say that to me mid race and you just made yourself a target (I too can draft). I'll usually take the bait.<br>
Say that to me post-race and all I can think is that I hope my dust (and snot, spit and pharts) tasted good....heh
<b>Cactus</b>, a guy at the Y once told me that African-American women shouldn't run marathons because it made it harder for us to date African-American men because we wouldn't have the time to do something or some such nonsense. I was like oooo-k.
Okay, since I got some people thinking about Spring '08 marathons... Here are the ones I've seen mentioned, plus a couple others that I have on my list to do someday... Just throwing these out there as food for thought...<br><br>
Napa Valley Marathon, Mar 2<br>
L.A. Marathon, Mar 2<br>
ING Georgia Marathon, Mar 30<br>
Salt Lake City Marathon, Apr 19<br>
Boston Marathon, Apr 21<br>
Country Music Marathon, Apr 26<br>
Green Bay Marathon, May 18<br>
Fargo Marathon, May 19<br><br>
Anyone have any comments on any of these?
I could be easily talked into any of the maybes above. <img alt="smile.gif" src="">
You know what... Maybe the idea of Spring '08 marathons deserves its own thread. There's always so much bibble babble going on here in the daily thread, and this is a topic that's looking so far into the future. I'm sure it'll take many many days to get everyone's opinions on a possible 30s meet-up for next spring, so maybe it'd best to keep all those posts in one place. I'll start a new thread...
Ahem. . .Duluth. . .(I've got 9.5 acres, 3 bathrooms and a river. . .)
<b>Nettie</b> - did I miss what the doctor said?
Um yeah, I posted it in The Sideline. It's not a stress fracture is the short story. <img alt="smile.gif" src="">
oh good. I'll look over there - but I appreciate the update! <img alt="smile.gif" src="">
Ahem...Boston...(I've got nothin...but it's a cool city) <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><br><br> as a charity runner! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
Having to raise money would drive me insane!!!!!
Probably yes on CMM, close enough to not need a hotel. (Nettie and Timr I didn't know this earlier this year, sorry.)<br><br>
What no <b>random</b> Alabama marathon? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
I'd love to do a marathon in Alabama. List some.
<b>HH</b> - I'll definitely be in Boston as will Pacer Chris. I'll assume that at least a few more will be joining us.<br><br>
Hmmm...Speaking of Alabama marathons, I'd do the <i>Mercedes Marathon</i> just for the phat Mercedes schwag.
Oooh that marathon does sound nice and it's in February. ooooooh!
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!
