Good morning!<br><br>
It's been about forever since I started a thread.<br><br>
My running to report is that I am going off this morning to volunteer at a <b>15k</b> here in town called <b>Run Into Buffalo.</b> First time race volunteering. But you know, I'm all about giving back to the community.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Hung out at the finish line of a summer 5k on Friday. First time doing that in a while...fun to see the 15<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Mad">x's come across. It reminded me that I would like to run a 20<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Mad">x some day.<br><br>
As for <b>Crane's</b> running mantra - <i>Hard is good,</i> clearly I don't have anything more to add to that! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/surprised.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Surprised"><br><br>
Good runs all!

Hey <b>Doc</b>.<br><br>
Wow, I slept in til 7 today. I'm going to be lazy today. Not a bad way to celebrate Labor day by doing no labor.<br><br>
Coffee. Yeah. Need some of it.

Whoops....sorry, posted on the w/e page.<br>
Mornin' fellas.<br><br>
Sounds like <b>Heather</b> and <b>Crane</b> really had a groove on - gotta love it when the legs just feel like going and going, intentionally getting lost or not. Nice work!<br><b>Bob, Baggs, Maria, Brandy</b> - good luck in the 20K, hope you all kill it.<br><b>Big G</b> - I have painting that needs doing, I'll even buy the paint. Wanna come over? I made Theia's brownies...<br><br>
Alright, 5 on tap for me this AM, then I'm going out w/the uncle to pull our 15 lobster traps. Sounds like a seafood dinner tonight....mmm<br><br>
F'ing asshat hackers got the homepage. Sounded like german music.

<b>2oh</b>- I'm pretty sure it's not German music! I think it's Latin, actually. Difficult to tell with the way they're singing..<br><br>
Anyway, I'm up! It's all nice and sunny outside, but all that means is it's gonna be hot soon. I need to get out for a few miles this morning before heading to my parents' house. Coffee first, though....<br><br><b>Doc</b>- good on you for volunteering. It can be inspiring and depressing at the same time to watch those first place finishers (unless your name is <b>PhillyTom</b>!) Have fun.<br><br><b>Good luck in New Haven peeps!</b><br><br>
Okie dokie.. gonna go make that coffee and try to get a start on the day! Later...

What is <i>up</i> with this hacking lately?? Somebody's got it out for us, or else we're on the hacking radar.<br><br>
Anyway, good morning! Finishing up my morning coffee and getting ready for exercise. Not sure what's on the agenda for today, probably nothing other than some relaxation.

Morning My Pretties,<br><br>
Sorry. Posted this twice because I came through the back door and didn't see it until just now.<br><br><br>
I ran 5k recovery this morning, with my husband, who has decided after all this time that running should be shared. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/cool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Cool"><br><br>
And now here are the highlights:<br><br>
Thanks <b>LL, Moon and KP</b> for the props<br><br>
Way to go <b>Scratch!</b> I can't wait to meet you. I promise to be good.<br><br>
Way to go <b>Melissa!</b><br><br>
Nice pictures <b>Heather</b>. How <i>you</i> doin'?<br><br><b>BigG</b>: You've already told us that you like it SLOW... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/surprised.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Surprised"><br><br><b>Tiff</b>: Oh no! Are you alright!<br><br><b>Doc:</b> Love the <b><span style="color:#FF0000;">Mad Hot</span>!</b> It's my new favorite saying! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Fleet Feet to <b><span style="color:#0000FF;">boB</span>, <span>Maria,</span> <span>Brandy</span> and <span>Baggio!</span></b><br><br>
p.s. I hate running shoes! My Asics 2110 are finished for sure now they gave me huge blisters yesterday on my long run. My Asics 2120 are still really iffy and give me left ankle and right knee painses. And my New Brooks Adrenalines are not all that comfortable to be wearing. ARRGGGGGGGGGGHHHH!

Good morning. Sleepytime groggyesque this morning. Gotta make myself go start ohr week 3. Then it's off to home to celebrate my sister's birthday. That means good fellowship and good food. This afternoon I am thinking about going to see "Balls of Fury".<br><br>
I was gone all day Saturday for our football game so I didn't even get a chance to post. I learned a lot getting trained as a backup radio engineer. A short time after the game began it started to make logical sense (settings and configurations).<br><br>
Ok I might attempt to re-read the Saturday/Sunday thread. Talk to you all soon.

I'm with <b>2oh</b>...asshats.<br><br>
5.26 out of the way today. Unfortunately actually have to work today (practice at 6 p.m. tonight) and I've got some stuff to do to get ready for the next week. But I did have fun Saturday and Sunday.<br><br><b>Doc</b> - in what capacity are you volunteering? Medical? If so, good luck with that. Probably the thing I hate the most is working the finish line of a race...have some very bad experiences from working cross country meets.<br><br><b>Winter</b>, now he wants to run? Any progress/decision on the tattoo?

Morning Gang - Happy Monday and Labor Day!<br><br>
Should be a quiet day up North although I realized my bosses probably don't remember that I start classes tomorrow morning and therefore I'll be dropping by work today to leave them reminder notes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Which is okay, since I have to shop for supper's ingredients anyways. Tonight we are having Moroccan Braised Beef . . .it's yummy.<br><br><b>Doc</b> - There are 3 1/2 bigger BrewFests in MN/WI: 2 are in Superior, 1 1/2 are in Minneapolis. All of them are usually just upper midwest breweries but are really good events. We sometimes get some in from CO, rarely do we get anything from the East Coast, although for the WI ones there are also usually a couple from Canada. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Ticket prices run $25-$50, and I haven't seen one where they try to tell you how much you'll get to drink for that. This year we're hitting the Autumn Brew Review in Mpls at the end of the month, most likely skipping the Big Lake BrewFest in Superior the week before that but we are taking the Beer Train in Duluth on the 15th. So, 2 out of 3 for the month isn't bad.<br><br>
Hope you all have lovely days!!

all this tat talk...I've been thinking about one but I doubt I'll ever do it. One reason? I'd want it somewhere you'd not see it much, but I didn't know about the status of having one on your lower back and you guys creeped me out about having one there. The only other place I'd consider is my hip, but that's not a pretty spot in me, so there you go, not gonna happen.<br><br>
In other news: didn't see my friends yesterday, since her husband stepped back from a crawl space and missed the ladder and fell 8 ft, rupturing his achilles. OW.<br><br>
I may actually go for a little run today, but I'm not sure. My little 2 miles yesterday kinda wiped me out! (granted I'd walked 11 the day before...so I was probably tired going in).<br><br>
Good luck racers today!!!

Happy Labor Day, all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><br><br>
Quick post for me -- just got back from my 16 mile long run. Thought of you, <b>2oh</b>, when I stopped at Foster's to refill my strap-on <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Now I have to pack all my stuff from the summer to head home a bit later. Back to the real world for me tomorrow... Must.get.some.final.beach.time.in.first. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> Aww, who am I kidding? I'll be back at the shore next weekend...<br><br>
Good to see ya popping in here regularly again, <b>Doc</b><br>
Looking forward to hearing from our <b>racers,</b> and to hearing what <b>winter</b> decided for her tattoo!<br><br>
I still have to catch up on the weekend thread... and I'll try to stop back later! Enjoy the day off (for those who have it)!

G'morning and happy Labor Day to you all.<br><br>
Slept wrong and woke up with a bit of a sore neck. I don't need reminders of my previous pinched nerve issues two weeks before my tri - ugh! Got a run on the docket sometime today.<br><br>
I couldn't access the front page yesterday for awhile myself (denial of service attack?); looks like the asshats got the front page (again...grrr!)<br><br>
Managed to catch the end of the women's marathon for the World Championships late last night on TV - if you want a super-pained expression, just watch the Japanese woman (who won the bronze) the last couple miles or so<br><br><b>Doc</b> - have a fun time volunteering, and I love the return of the angry smiley times<br><br>
Wow <b>Winter</b> - you got your DH off his duff and you'll be getting your kids off to school. I guess all that's left is to get off to the tattoo parlor soon<br><br><b>Maureen</b> - must've missed the tat discussion; what's the dealio with getting a tat on the lower back? As far as your friend's DH, ow indeed!<br><br>
Anyway, better find me some breakfast...have a good day folks! And I hope our New Haven racers are kicking some butt out there!

<b>Merry Mary McTortle and Solar</b>: I'm getting a great Canadian symbol. I'm getting a snowcovered Inukshuk on my left back/shoulder. It is a stone sculpture used in the far north to point travellers in the right direction. Suits my purpose to a T. No pic for you until I get it done. Maybe this week as <b>Moon</b> said.<br><br><br>
Hey I got my haircut. What do ya think?<br><img alt="" src="http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p263/winterrun/DSC04244.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">
