Hey Maria - I see you lurking - bet you are doing the same thing as me - waiting to wake up a bit before your LR. It is crzy humid here - magazies feel like they had water spilled on them. 72* w/ 94% humidity (70* dew point for scratch).<br><br>
Have a greate weekends kids - I am off to sweat....

Nice early start, <b>Litch</b>! I too am getting ready to hit the road and fight the humidity. Good thing I plan on going slow; today would not be a fun day to try for speed. I just finished eating something, so I'll take a little while to digest and then get going, hopefully before it gets too hot...<br><br>
Good morning to the rest of the sleepyheads... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

Good morning Litch, Bob, and all who follow. I am just relaxing a bit before bed. I finished up a 3 mile run a little bit ago so I have a bit too much energy to sleep right now.

Oh and in Friday's thread <b>Aunt Moe</b> posted the following as a possible description for our group.<br><br>
"Fort hose who like 80s music and movies, cookies and beer, sweating like 10 whole men, wimmins...oh and running too!"?<br><br>
I am thinking this might be a great description to ask admin to put up for us. Do you all agree?

You're still awake, <b>Kini</b>? Even where you are, it's pretty darn late. Get to bed already! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

Good luck to the racers, I remember that <b>Prae</b> is one. I think. Hey I still haven't had coffee yet.<br><br>
Cranked out a total of 100 pull ups yesterday.<br><br>
Need some coffee, then I'm going to go run 6.2 for a shortened long run during a recovery week.

Hi all- went to bed early early last night (like 9 pm) so woke up pretty early. It's hot hot hot here as well. Makes me almost glad I can't run! I did quote requests for cross-country movers- should be getting follow up calls on those soon. Panic mode is setting in. I think I'll go through my clothes today and weed through stuff.<br>
Good luck to the racers!

<b>KJ</b>, I forgot to post congrats to you yesterday. I forget who said it, but I had the same initial reaction---<b><i>KJ's leaving?</i></b> Thank goodness for teh intarwebs.<br><br>
Yup, it is hot here. I have my mom, sister, and niece coming over for brunch in 2 hours. I truly hope to get to the gym later today, since I didn't yesterday.<br><br>
Despite a cup-and-a-half of coffee, I can't get my brain to spit out anything else interesting. I would like to just commend <b>kini</b>, though, on your running. You're at the point where you just casually mention finishing up a 3-miler. And good luck to <b>Prae</b> and other racers.

Morning! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Good on you guys for getting up so early for those long runs on a Sat! I seriously can't wait till it's cooler and I have the option to run whenever I feel like it! Last night would have been nice for a run after we got some showers. YES! Rain!! First time in weeks! Unfortunately, it was late when I left (well, 10;30- too late for a run outside) and I'd been drinking a little. So, my little plan for getting up early today was not to be. I will just have to run after body pump at the gym. Looks like it's supposed to rain again, so hopefully it will be cooler for my LR tomorrow!<br><br>
Well, I just want to repeat- GOOD LUCK to all our racers- Prae, Kris (Bard), Nick, Korbels and someone I'm forgetting! Gah!! So sorry!! But good luck to you, too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br><b>Doc</b>- how ya feeling this morning? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Well, gonna enjoy my coffee then slowly get ready for the gym. Strangely, I woke up about an extra hour early so I've got plenty of time to digest it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Happy Saturdays!!!!! Can't wait to read the race reports!

Good morning and hello weekend! DH leaves for New Zealand today for the week. Today is rest day, but I'll be meeting up with Heather tomorrow for a run. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_cheers.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="cheers"> I'm going to drop the two munchkins at my moms tonight and have a night off and completely alone. Can't wait. Anywho, looks like Litch really needed coffee this morning ... Sugust ... anyone else catch that? <lol><br><br>
I do love Moe's description. I think we should use it. Now, if we could only come up with a fun name. I've completely exhausted my brain trying to come up with something. I've got nothing.<br><br>
Stay cool today!

Hey all:<br><br>
Just a quick drop in. Was out for 16 this am to try to beat the humidity. That didn't really work! Wet, wet, wet.<br><br>
Off for vacation this week - I'll catch you all later!

Ummm..do I live in the rainforest? There is so much condensation on my windows I can't see out them, just a blur of green. Disgusting!<br><br>
If DH would wake up and I hadn't just eaten an omelette w/ tequila lime salsa I would go out for a quick run however, I think I will have to wait a bit now. I don't plan on doing much distance since I want to bring Bella and she's a newbie runner dog so I guess the temperature won't really make a difference.<br><br>
Today we are going to the pool. It closes tomorrow and I have to pick up the lawn chairs and umbrellas. I'm not sure if its a perfect day for the pool or if it will be even too hot for that!<br><br>
Tonight I am going to dinner and a play called "Menopause" with my cousin and some of her friends. It should be fun.<br><br><b>Moe-</b>I did say I was going away but not until next Friday/Saturday. We're heading to South Carolina to see my inlaws. They live in Bluffton right across from Hilton Head. I can't wait. I haven't had a real vacation since Cape Cod the September before last. I need some R&R.<br><br>
Have fun on vacation <b>Tom!</b><br><br>
Stay hydrated you crazy LR runners this morning!

Says who??? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
My cold has morphed into asthma/wheezing/tightness. Not good. I'm using my scary inhaler to try to get the symptoms to calm down, and I'm picking up a homeopathic remedy today to see if I get this under control. I don't know what to do about my LR tomw--4 miles. We're also golfing 18 holes tomw. I might try to run on the TM in the morning, see how it goes, but walk it if need be. I *think* I can actually run 4...but not if my lungs aren't cooperating.<br><br>
Good luck racers!!!!

Cripes. Worst conditions I've ever run in. It's 80 degrees here now and the humidity is about 100%.<br><br>
For the first time since May 20th, I ended up taking walk breaks during a run. I hated doing that, but running in this soup made running seem like a huge effort. So I took walk breaks. Yuck.

Morning Gang.<br><br>
Today I am going to run 5 miles. This is the plan. This is also going to be after drugs. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> And, after coffee.<br><br><b>Doc</b>- good to see you back and in fine form! How's the shoulder? The stomach? The head? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Morning, all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><br><br>
Got up early and got 5 miles in this morning before the sun got strong. Humidity was gross, I was soaked, but my legs felt pretty good. Overall, a good way to start the day!<br><br><b>Good Luck to our racers this weekend!</b><br><br>
I'm in bridal shower/bachelorette party mode for a friend today. Shower this afternoon, followed by a booze cruise. I hate this shower stuff, so I'm looking forward to the booze cruise part to dull the pain <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Happy Weekend!
