Look at me go. I've never started the thread before.<br><br>
We made it to Kochi, India. I'm in my hotel room. It's 11:22am here.<br>
I'm about to head to the Fitness Center to run on the tread mill.<br><br>
Good morning and good runs to all.<br><br>

Good morning. We still can't seem to get the date right, eh?<br><br>
I just got back from 2.75 recovery style miles, I had mixed in a bit of fartlek on Tuesday's run and just wanted this to be real easy. Good day to go easy, the muggy weather has come back. Yuck.<br><br>
Got to eat a bit and get ready for work.

Glad to hear you made in safely, <b>Tim</b>. I'm sure you're tired after the long trip...<br><br>
Good morning, all. First of all, <b>fort hose</b> who may have missed it last night, I posted a race report from my 5k yesterday in the Race Reports forum <a href="http://kickrunners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8212" target="_blank">here</a>.<br><br>
I got a phone call at 11:00pm last night from my mom. Maggie and I were already asleep by then, and I know that's also past my parents' bedtime, so it couldn't have been good news. My mom said that she had just gotten home from the hospital, where she had been all day with my dad! Apparently he had tossed and turned the entire night before with some abdominal pain. When he finally got up yesterday morning and tried to eat something, he threw it up almost right away. And that's the point at which they figured they'd better go to the hospital. They were there for over 12 hours! during which time my dad underwent a zillion tests (X-Ray, Cat scan, ultrasound, etc) and they still couldn't tell exactly what was wrong. They think it's something to do with his gall bladder, but they'll have to run more tests today to be sure. He finally got admitted and he spent the night there.<br><br>
My mom says it doesn't seem like an emergency and that my dad isn't in any pain any more. And that's why she didn't call until she got home from the hospital. But geez, it's still a little unsettling. I can't go there today, but I'm gonna take tomorrow off from work and go to CT to see them for the weekend. My dad is an older guy (he's 85!) and any time someone his age is in the hospital -- especially with a problem that stumps the doctors for more than 12 hours -- it's gotta make you a little nervous...<br><br>
Since you folks are all so good at sending out the healing vibes, please send a few his way, eh? Thanks...

<b>Bob</b> - Best wishes to your dad.. I worry about my folks health every time they tell me something 'new' has come up. Also, nice RR, I love your photography. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Morning. I got up early just to have a chance to post, see how much I miss you? I'm still in the crazy transition phase of the new job, but I still think it was the right move (so far!).<br><br><b>Bob -</b> hope all is well with your dad<br><br><b>Timr</b> - have a wonderful trip!<br><br>
I'm probably never going to be really caught up on the thread again, but I'll keep trying!<br><br>

Hmmm, 7:05, I really ought to be on the road to work right now. And I still need to put on my shirt and brush my teeth. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Screw it, I've been working long hours, I can show up a few min late today.<br><br>
No run yesterday, but I wasn't sure I'd be able to get it in anyway. I got an email from my mom asking me to stop by the ER at my university's medical center. Our friend (an unofficial family member, really) was taken by ambulance after passing out in her dr office. She's OK, they admitted her for observation. She has severe reactive hypoglycemia and a low heart rate, so they aren't quite sure which was the culprit this time. So I got to entertain her while she waited in the ER for a few hours. Her ER doc was a hottie! And I was wearing something that actually showed cleavage. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"> I told her she should try to fix me up. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br><b>Bob-</b> hope they figure out what is going on with your Dad and that it turns out to be relatively minor. My grandpa is about your dad's age, and I worry about him all the time. He's slowing down these days, though his mind is still sharp as a tack.<br><br>
OK, I'll be around later...

Didn't hang with the party people last night post race....still find myself more tired than usual with this shoulder. I can do some simple things, like right handed shaving...that is a big improvement. I've been cutting my face with my left hand. Damn it!<img alt="surprised.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/surprised.gif"><br><br>
Did do another session of sitting mindfulness practice. It does help to have something else to calm my brain down while running is on hold.<br><br>
Missing the kiddos, they have another 4 days away.<img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
Found myself sitting on my ass last night thinking of that line.....<br><br><i>Get up Trinity, get UP!<br><br></i>Good runs all....

Hey folks! I survived my 16 hour day yesterday and a tough hilly bike ride!!! Rewarded myself with a "Bobbi" for dinner and watched one of my favorite movies, Goodfellas.<br><br><b>Kini</b> I somehow missed it, but hope you rmom is ok!!!<br><br><b>Bob</b> those phone calls make me crazy!!! When my phone rings past 11 I know it isn't good news. Gall bladder troubles stink!!! But since they admitted him, they can get all the tests done quick! Hope all is well with him, sending good vibes.<br><br><b>Kris</b> you are such a wonderful person!!!! I am sure you made a scarey situation so much better for your friend. And hey, if you get a cute doc out of it, well it's karma baby, you deserve some of the good stuff coming back to you!!!<br><br><b>Tim</b> glad you made it there safe.<br><br>
Oh and about beer pong (from yesterday) we played in college all the time! Several times a week (maybe that is why most of my friends were on the 5+ years plan!!). Still play when we get a chance. My new favorite game is cornhole! It is the new tailgating staple and my friend is building me a setup right now!! Yipee!!!<br><br>
Ok, off to the lab, gotta get some stuff set up before my team meeting!

<b>Hi all!</b><br><br>
Crazy week, totally behind on the thread...<br><br><b>Tim</b>, hello India! Glad you made it there safe...how's the weather?<br><br><b>{{{Bob's dad}}}</b> - I hope it's something easily fixed...<br><br><b>{{{Kris' friend]]]</b> - good luck with the doctor!...I've always had a thing for ER docs (or is it just George Clooney? I can't really say) <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br><b>DrChris</b> - I'm impressed you're all up and about with that shoulder - are you on leave from work or managing that as well?<br><br><b>Hi Amichel, Scratch, Jen!</b><br><br>
Okay. I flew back to Baltimore last night from Orlando, and hopped on the TM at the hotel for 3.5. It's my first chance for any kind of workout this week so far, so that felt great.<br><br>
And I can't wait to go home tonight, I'm off from work tomorrow!!!! I'm heading to CT for the weekend for a bachelorette blowout for my brother's fiance. Should be, um, interesting, as I've been told to make a swing by Spencer's Gifts for the Friday night party. Not exactly my cup o'tea, but whatever makes the bachelorette happy/embarrassed, I guess!<br><br>
[whine]Do I <i>have</i> to go to work????[/whine]<br><br>
Have a great day all!!

Morning all! Relaxing recovery run last night and 11 miles tonight with [email protected]<br><br>
Great job on the race <b>boB</b>, I like that area around Westfield - your pictures looked great as usual!<br><br>
Healthy vibes out to the family friend of <b>Kris, Bob's dad, Kini's mom</b> and everyone else needing them.<br><br><b>Lori</b> - I'm almost scared to ask... uh, what is cornhole? All that comes to mind is stuff I hear on Howard in the a.m.<br><br><b>Doc</b> - is the shoulder any less bruised yet? When the girls are around, do they like helping dad out? You know mowing the lawn, doing the dishes, cooking? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Oh yes and so glad to hear you arrived in India safely, <b>Tim</b> - have fun on your adventures there!

<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:CORNHOLE.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/c/ce/CORNHOLE.jpg/180px-CORNHOLE.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br><br>
This is the basic version of a cornhole board. My friend makes a suped up version, 3 holes, each one a different point value. And his board looks like a football field, has the Eagles logo on it! Oh and we don't toss silly bean bags, we use big old heavy washers, makes it way more challenging!!! Wahoo! Actually if you google cornhole, you get tons of sites, there is even a Cornhole players association! You will have to come to one of our tailgate parties to play, and we can find LL and make him cook for us!!!

Morning, all! <img alt="wave.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wave.gif"><br><br>
Just got done a good 6 mile run -- threw some tempo in -- felt good. 16 week training for Philly starts this Monday. I'm playing around with some plans for now, and adding swimming and biking into the mix for the little tri I'm tri-ing <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> in September...<br><br>
Anywho... <b>Beaker</b> -- my friends play with a fancy board at the Eagles games as well! They are soooo serious about that game.<br><br>
Good luck to our SF racers this weekend! I'm not sure if <b>Pacer</b> will see this, but <b>Maria, M's sis, Moon... wait, who else?</b> -- kick butt!<br><br>
Spent the day yesterday with my sister and little nephews at the Ocean City boardwalk... nice day <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br><b>Bob</b>-- I still have to go back and read your RR -- I forgot it was in Westfield! My family lived there from when I was about 1 to 4 years old. I started Kindergarten there... By the way, good vibes to your dad...<br><br>
Ok, I'm in desperate need of a shower and coffee... Later!
