Just getting us started this morning <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Happy and safe runs to all!<br><br>
P.S. I obviously needed some caffiene this morning, when I wrote the title of today's tread! Oops!

Good morning. Ooof, you scared me with the 'Thursday' in the title. Thank goodness it really is Friday...<br><br>
LSU looked good last night. Miss St... not so much. The local boys (Rutgers) also looked good. Not the greatest matchups last night, but I'm just glad that the season is underway again.<br><br>
Have a great day, everybody...

Good morning 30s!<br><br>
I feel BETTER! I'm very happy about this. Of course, I just heard that DH is going to see a friend in RI tonight and tom'w night, so I'm feeling better, but I'll be stuck at home without a car for the next 2 nights. I told him to go, I <i>want</i> him to go, but maybe I sorta wish he'd stay home too. He doesn't do enough with his friends, so I don't want to tell him not to go, but I guess I sorta wish I wasn't going to be unexpectedly alone part of the weekend. I'll get over it, I'm a big girl.<br><br>
I'm not hacking up a lung, so I <i>might</i> try running a little tomw. I really want to get out there, but I also don't want to make anything worse.<br><br>
Sadly there was a race I wanted to do this weekend, but that's out. Iron Girl 5 mile. Oh well. I could walk it, but I don't think I'll bother.<br><br>
As usual, this is all about me.<br><br>
One more thing about me, but I'll get to you right after. I posted a thread in PRT: <a href="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10422" target="_blank">I need a black formal dress/gown</a>; anyone got one I can borrow???<br><br>
OK, now to you folks:<br><br><b>EQ,</b> great car!<br><b>Lora,</b> love the coif!<br><b>BigG,</b> nice to see you! I hope you settle in quickly.<br><b>Cactus and Kini,</b> good on you for getting out there.<br><b>Tim and Colleen,</b> beautiful kids!<br><b>General HEY! to everyone else!</b><br><br>
Gotta run...I'll pop in later.<br><br>
Moe

Morning <---------- notice there's no "good" before it.<br><br>
I intended to get up to run before work, but neglected to reset my alarm to the right time. So I woke up on my own, thinking it was 3:30 or something and it was already 6:30. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"> I'm sitting here just so sleepy! I'm so looking forward to the three day weekend!<br><br>
Anywho, not much else to report. Might try for a run after work if I can score a nap or something first.<br><br>
Mandy, how did the technology presentation go yesterday? I remember those days. Just hoping the overhead or TV would work to show the video......<br><br>
OK, I should actually get ready for work.

Morning Gang! This early start in the Northland would not be possible if not for our friend coffee. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br><b>Solar</b> - the new hair cut is darling! I love it!!<br><br><b>Cactus</b> - you can totally sit on 'em while we get 'em! Welcome to the stupid people suck team o' justice! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
The painters started the house yesterday! Woohoo!! It's gonna be soooooo nice! Except for the whole can no longer see out any of the windows on the main floor thing. . .<br><br>
My poor dogs - not only did the painters start yesterday but the lawn guys came out to mow as well, I have never seen 2 animals happier to see me than my girls last night!! I think the blond may actually lose all of her hair over this one. . .which wouldn't be all bad now that I think about it. . .<br><br>
Swimming today. Looking forward to stretching out in the pool for a bit.<br><br><b>QOD</b> DH's on call, so no real plans together. I've got recycling tomorrow, some cleaning, a run, a bike, a wetsuit to try out. . . some grocery shopping, the things that take just enough time to be almost chores but really go improve the quality of life.<br><br>
Happy Friday!!

Hey kids!!! I have not one single ounce of motivation to work today!!! Not one!!!! I am hoping to be sprung early.<br><br>
So no run or bike last night cause I went to the Eagles game. Crappy game but I sat in my dad's seats which are right behind the bench so we had fun! And it was just a perfect night to be outside! Will get a run in today after work for sure!<br><br><b>Solar</b> That is an amazing picture! Love the new 'do!!!<br><br>
The kid pictures were fabulous!!!<br><br><b>Maria</b> I am glad no other 30's were in town yesterday, you would have had to do a triple!!<br><br><b>Big G</b> hope the transition smoothes out!!<br><br><b>Moe</b> So glad you are feeling better! Have to check out your other thread, I might have something for you!<br><br><b>QOD:</b> If DH can get someone to cover for him tomorrow we have a house warming party, which should be fun!!! Sunday my family and I are going up to see a Blue Claws game. Monday, nothing! Pool time I think. But Monday is the last game of the season for DH's team! I am thrilled!!! He is so burnt out right now. Loves working with the team but geesh is it rough!!<br><br>

Good bleeding morning to ya! Came in to work, started settling in, check my blood sugar by poking my right ring finger and after opening that digit up, it didn't want to clot. Then I get ready to inject my bolus shot for vanilla yogurt, do so in the back of my left arm, count to 10, pull the needle out and I'm rewarded with yet more blood while my right ring finger is still leaking.<br><br>
Last day of August. This year has gone by so quickly so far.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/book1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="book"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/toothy9.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="toothy7"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_rendeer.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="reindeer"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/happy1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="happy1"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/blob10.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blob8"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/s-bluecap.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="UT"><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/blob1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blob1"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wav.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wav">

Good morning everyone!<br><br>
... I've got nothin'! Just glad it's Friday!<br><br><b>QOD:</b> My weekend plans are to hang out with DH. I'm picking him up in a half hour at the airport, he's coming home from a week-long business trip in New Zealand, and on Monday he's flying out again for 3 long weeks away. So, the girls and I will be hanging with the man for the weekend.<br><br>
Happy runs to everyone, good races, and enjoy the holiday weekend!

Hi folks. DW is still sick so I'm just staying home today. Dr said she has a virus. Got in 6M this morning, nothing special about it.<br><br><b>MSU/LSU</b>: I thought Miss. State played excellent considering our QB threw 6 interceptions (I knew he was bad going into this game, but geez). LSU has some work to do w/ their OL though, MSU shouldn't be able to get that kind of pass rush on them.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/BangHead.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bandhead">

<b>boB</b> - yeah, it's good to get a few games under out belt. I'm just glad it's football season. I was excited just hearing the theme song on ESPN. Yesterday, our local radio sports guy was intervieing Kirk Herbstreet and he was saying what they go through to get ready for the season. Gameday is going to be live this Saturday from Virginia Tech in Blacksberg and they aren't too sure what the mood and atmosphere is going to be like. My guess is excited but respectful.<br><br>
Thanks <b>Moe</b> - glad to hear that you're feeling better.<br><br><b>Cactus</b> - sorry to hear that you had a partial rain out too. The local weatherman had just been on the morning show talking about the danger of lightning strikes, so it just wasn't worth the risk.<br><br>
Well, I've got to slip away from work to go buy another new pair of running shoes today. I need a haircut. I have a pile of conf calls on my calendar. Two reports to generate, two expense reports to do, need to squeeze in the 4 miles that I cut short from yesterday's run, and we should get out of work early because of a holiday weekend. Then, when I get home, it's me and my kiddos, wife has a night out with her girlfriend, then we hit the road first thing in the morning. Huntsville for the day and then on to Knoxville.<br><br>
I need to get to work. Check back later. What's the <b>QOD</b>?

morning, all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><br><br>
Worked last night, got home around 2am, woke up this morning feeling really icky. ugh. I'm sitting here trying to decide if I can get out to do my workout.... me thinks not yet... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"><br><br>
Thanks for all the nice comments about my haircut! I needed to take some off - it was getting too long. By the way, <b>Mandy</b> -- I like the bangs on you. My face is too square to pull them off, I think.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/happy11.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="happy11"><br><br>
Hey, <b>Bard</b> - I was at that '05 game in the Big House. I was actually sitting in the Michigan student section. Had a blast. It's GO BLUE! in my house, though...<br><br><b>McT -</b> are you doing a tri? did I miss that?<br><br>
Ok, I'm off to decide if I can get some toast or something in me... Be back later. Happy Friday, all!<br><br><b>Oooh - Theia --</b> did I hear that Becks is out? Another injury???

Morning. Like Beth, notice the lack of good preceding that.<br><br><b>McT</b> I hear ya' on the dogs thang. I thought the roofers came this morning at 8. No. They arrived at 7. Actually 6:54. And rang the doorbell cuz I had to move my car. The dog is going mental and driving ME stark raving mad. Where's the stark raving mad smiley icon?<br><br><b>Moe</b>, very glad to hear you are on the upswing!<br><br><b>Solar</b> I am green with envy on your hair. Lerv it. It's that sassy sex-ay yet elelgant look that I wish mine would look like.<br><br><b>Roo</b>, you always seem to know just what people need! heh. And a pint of Ben & Jerry's would do me good too.<br><br>
For now, I need coff-ay but must venture up to the kitchen where the noise is reaching a peak. Arg.<br><br>
It's a beeyooteeful day outside.<br><br>
Happy trails all!

Forgot to answer the <b>QOD</b> - I'm at the shore, so a good weekend is built in. I worked at the nightclub last night and I'll be there tomorrow night as well. Dinner out with friends tonight, possible meet-up with an old college friend on Sunday, long run Monday before heading home to start the school year Tuesday!

Thanks Jill...(I found it after I posted, too lazy to edit <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> )<br><br>
Now is that food plans or just plans? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
We're heading up to DW's parents house tomorrow morning to visit with her Aunt & Uncle who are down visiting from Ottawa. But, there's no room for a family of 4 at that inn, so after dinner we'll drive from Huntsville up to my parents house in Knoxville and spend Sun - Mon out on the lake or in the pool with the kids. I'm not sure what the menu is going to be, but i'm sure it involves grilled meat! Yum! I'm thinking about taking my road bike and trying to get some miles in on it on Sunday. And, if I can swing it, I might race in a 10K on Monday just north of knoxville. As you guys called it, I have a running "date" with Flem tomorrow morning. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

Howdy again folks.<br><br>
Now that I'm coherent enough to type the correct day of the week... I figured I'd peek back in.<br><br>
Still no exercising here, but I swear, either my mind is playing tricks on me, or the ankle has finally reached a good healing stage. For the first time since being benched, I actually feel that there is some positive movement. Hopefully in another month or so, I can start out with a beginner's running plan again.<br><br>
Of course, I keep joking with myself.. the other week, i bought a pair of bright <b><span style="color:#000000;">yellow wigwam socks</span></b> for running. Although I know it has nothing to do with it, I'm psyching myself up, and telling myself that those are now my "power socks", and they're gonna help me be speedy, one day! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br><b>QoD:</b> Nada tonight. Dinner and games at Dave & Buster's Saturday. Nada on Sunday. Monday - maybe some shopping if I find something that catches my eye! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br><b>Big G</b> - Hope all the moving stoof passes quickly, and life can get back to normal for ya soon!<br><br>
Okies.. time to get back to doing some work. zzzz
