Morning all,<br><br>
This thread starting thing is like shootin' fish in a barrel! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Woke up early again this morning. So I went up to the Health Club @ the hotel and did 8 kms on the treadmill.<br><br>
The excitement of the day so far was that we saw an Elephant on the side of the road on the drive to the office from the hotel. We took the time to circle back around to it so we could take pictures. I'll try to post one later today.<br><br>
Once again, Congrats to all the weekend/SF racers. Glad you made it home safely <b>Maria</b>.<br><br>
I'll check back later for <b>QOD.</b><br>
It's lunch time here.<br><br>
Tim

I guess I could chat with myself -<br><br>
"Hey Tim, I see you're back from lunch. How was it?"

Good actually, we've been eating a lot of the local food and really enjoying it, but today our hosts decided to give us a taste of home and ordered Pizza Hut for lunch. Of course, it wasn't exactly the same, but it was tasty none the less.

I just came back from 3.3 miles, felt pretty good although it is still stinking humid. Ran 3.3 because that gave me an even 50 miles for the month of July. It's been a good month of running for me.

Good Morning! Waking up is hard to do! My peroneal tendon appears to have stopped bitching, so that's good.<br><br><b>Scratch</b>, 50 miles this month? I'm jealous!<br><br><b>Tim</b>, would love to hear how the pizza is different.<br><br>
Ok, be back soon.

Heya 30s!<br><br>
Taking a personal day today; I'm actually feeling a little overwhelmed about this costuming gig, and I need to get some stuff out of the way before tonight's photoshoot and fitting. I don't have everyone's costumes which is a big part of the problem. Plus, I have to go to a last minute wedding 2 weeks before the opening in VT and it's really putting a crimp in my plans for getting everything ready. I don't want to go to this wedding AT.ALL. *sigh*<br><br>
I scanned last night's thread...but I can't remember what I wanted to say.<br><br>
Good vibes to KJ on her surgery today...<br><br>
Gotta run<br><br>
Moe.

Good morning, folks. People are starting to wake up now, so I hope <b>Tim</b> won't have to talk to himself too much anymore... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Wow, it's the last day of July already! Another month down the tubes. Times sure flies...<br><br>
Yesterday was my first official day of Philly Marathon training. I did a 6 mile tempo run, although my splits weren't quite on the money (8:35, 8:53, 8:37, 8:16, 8:55, 8:47). Well, I'll take it. Considering how exhausted I was all day yesterday, I'm surprised I did that well...<br><br>
Okay, y'all, enjoy your Tuesdays...

Thanks <b>Moe</b>-leaving for the hospital in about 20 minutes- starving....and dying of thirst (still dehydrated from the tri) and of course I can't have anything. I doubt seriously I'll check in tonight as I'll be plenty drugged up- got my perc's ready to go- but I'll pop in tomorrow. Hope everyone is doing well!

Well helllllloooooooooo!<br><br>
Did a tough workout at PT yesterday, I do believe he wants to kill me, hehehe! Then a 45min bike ride. I am dog sitting for a few days and it is making for early mornings and crazy days so that was all I could manage!<br><br>
So <b>Voodoo</b> you know how much I <heart> you right? Even more so after the compliment (and the funny!!) yesterday! That made me feel great!!!<br><br><b>Nettie</b> I need to see the hair!<br><br>
Hey <b>Kriddie</b> holy hottie Batman!!!!! Beautiful pic!<br><br><b>KJ</b> wishing you all the best today!<br><br>
It was so good to see <b>Laura</b>, she better pop back today!<br><br>
I have no races on my radar right now. I thinkit is making me lazy. I might need to hunt for something. Hey <b>Theia</b> any dus coming up, since I am still on the DL for swimming?!<br><br>
Oh and want to know know highlight of my day so far? I found a place to download 2 ringtones that will both delight me and annoy DH!!! One is the immortal voice of Beaker and the other is "Spider Pig" from the Simpsons (I have no idea why but that makes me crack up!!)<br><br>
Ok, off to the lab!

Good morning! My little guy decided to wake up at 5 am so I had to bag my run. He went back to sleep just in time for me to leave for work. Oh well, I'll get the run in tomorrow if Mr. Sandman cooperates.<br><br>
Good morning (evening??), <b>Tim!</b><br><br><b>Scratch</b>, excellent run! What is your goal for August?<br><br>
Hey, <b>Kini</b>! Love reading your recaps! Hope you have a great day!<br><br><b>Nettie</b>, glad to hear you are on the mend. Can't wait to see your new do!<br><br>
Hi <b>Auntie Moe</b>! Good luck with your photo shoot this evening!<br><br><b>Gator</b>, you got out there and got it done! I'm jealous!<br><br><b>KJ</b>, good luck with your surgery today. Take care!<br><br>

Good luck with the surgery, <b>KJ</b>.<br><br>
I like the progress I've had so far in my first 3 full months of running this year --<br><br>
* May, 31.8 miles, 12:56 min/mile, not all those miles were running<br>
* June, 40.3 miles, 12:25 min/mile, all running<br>
* July, 50 miles, 11:49 min/mile<br><br>
Broke 30 minutes in the 5K and had my longest run yet of 6.2 miles. To think that 6 months ago I had had a cast on my left leg for 4 weeks. Now I'm this crazy dude who wakes up around 5 in the mornings and goes for runs. <b>How crazy is this running thing?</b> Maybe that can be a sort of free form QOD...<br><br>
ETA: <b>Melanie,</b> I think my schedule that I've got mapped out should have me up to around 62.5 miles for the month of August. Just keep trying to patiently push up the miles and check on how the legs feel.

Wow, I can't believe I'm on the first page!!<br><br>
Nothing really to say yet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br><b>Hi Tim-</b>Do tell how the pizza is different? What kind of toppings? Can you tell I'm hungry this morning?<br><br><b>Lori</b>-My oldest dd loves that Spiderpig song! She would appreciate your new ringtone. Thanks for the compliment on the pic. Sometimes small is better!<br><br><b>ManAlive</b>-I kept meaning to comment but, Congrats on your big break! How cool.<br><br><b>kj</b>-good thoughts coming your way.<br><br><b>Moe</b>-Can't you get out of the wedding?<br><br>
Managed to get a mile warmup on the TM last night and a very half hearted attempt at some upperbody stuff, core and squats. Pretty sad. I think I'll be TM bound the next couple of nights what with the heat and dh working nights this week.<br><br>
Check back later...
