Morning!<br><br>
Nothing like starting the day with some prescription strength NSAIDS and waiting for your x-ray reports to come back.<br><br>
Yes, I saw my podiatrist yesterday. A good guy. Prone to talking about which bones in my ankle I might have fractured to explain this persistent pain I'm having. Good lord!<br><br>
I don't think that this pain is a fracture, but I'm not going to run today until I hear otherwise.<br><br>
For everyone who goes to doctors and hears them say things like "Well, if it is this bone that is broken, we'll have to cut through your fibula to fix it....", I apologize for the medical profession. WTF? Why start talking about cutting through my fibula until you have to?<br><br><br>
In keeping with <b>Flemdawg's</b> election as deacon of his church, I am putting myself up for <b>RA</b> of my Hash House Kennel. Technically, the job is called <b>Religious Advisor,</b> although in the Hash tradition it is something more like a cross between standup comedy, fraternity jokester and person-most-willing-to-go-where-no-one-else-is.<br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Good runs all!</span>

<span style="font-family:Arial;">Good morning folks.</span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">Only walked 1.5 miles at a slow pace yesterday. Feels like I'm starting to come down with a cold/bug thing, and I just had no energy to keep going. Bleh. Restorative yoga is on taps for tonight. Hopefully that will go better.</span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">Revisiting stuff from yesterday's thread:</span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;"><b>QoY1</b> – No idea</span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;"><b>Qoy2</b> – if caloric / fat intake wasn't an issue… fries any day of the week, and twice on Sunday. Preferably with lots of chili and seasoned salt.</span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;"><b>QoY3</b> – I'm a classic burger lover, though as far as cheese goes, I'm not a huge fan, unless the cheese is cheddar or pepper jack. Otherwise, I can do without. Mustard, ketchup, lettuce & tomato are preferred. No onions tho. At.. all. Adding an entire layer or two of pickles makes me a happy camper, however.</span><br><br><span style="font-family:'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-family:Arial;">Speaking of burgers – for those who have tried em, are <b>Gardenburgers</b> (or other veggie burger brands listed yesterday) anything like 'real hamburgers at all, in regards to consistency and taste?</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">Gotta jet.. will check back in after I get settled at work.</span>

Which means ya girl is tired and can't remember for sure what day this is...only that its the day i go get my uh...texture handled.<br><br>
3 tonight solo (what the hell will i do?). Pup goes to day care today and that might just be too much activity for him. I leave out early on daycare days (take the computer to dissertate) so no time for a run before.<br><br>
Frigging arches hurt. Though not as bad as normal since I'm up to a whopping 10 miles a week. yeah. try not fall over in your impressedness (and yes I made that up).<br><br><br><b>Bob</b> Hope Maggie is ok. Do something nice for her. That would freak most women I know the hell out.<br>
Waiting on <b>EQ</b> to come home because now I am worried. That crud is no joke up there, folks. Even die hard Alaskans are weirded out by the conditions in Fairbanks.<br>
Hi <b>Scratch</b>! How're your fingers?<br><b>MOONIE</b>!!! Looking good, brother!<br><b>Common</b>'s new album is off the chain if anyone is interested.<br><b>Ramsey</b> are you going to move your office to the bathroom?<br><b>Big G</b> tell people you got that eye in a bar fight. You'll have the easiest week evah.<br><b>Kris E</b> I love green chiles....<br><b>doc</b> I am glad you found your calling....you're great!<br><br>
Peace and love to you all today....<br><br>

<b>Bud Light Salutes YOU Mr. Hash House Religious Advisor</b><br><br>
You've found a way to combine two usually mutually exclussive activities. Drinking and Running <i>chorus: getting trashed and running</i><br><br>
While others partake of malted hops at the On On - you go Off Off the beaten path to find those who didn't make it. <i>chorus: the ones pukin' on the trail...</i><br><br>
And so we raise our glass to you Mr. Hash House Religious Advisor - without you <b>Cummin' Slowly</b> might never have came <i>chorus - passed out in the woods.</i><br><br>
In all seriousness - Good Luck with running for RA! I hope your foot/ankle feels better.

OMG <b>Myron</b> that is freaking hilarious!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Laughing"><br><br>
Didn't get up to run this morning. I set the alarm sort of half heartedly last night. I really need a day off anyway, it was just that I was hoping to do the day off tomorrow instead. Anywho...<br><br>
We have our first "early release" day of the year- kids get to leave early (12:30) and then we have to stay extra late after school (uh, no overtime! And don't dare come in 5 min. late tomorrow! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)"> ) I hate these days because it feels like 2 in one actually. At least I got into the "class" I wanted (an advanced creating videos with computers etc.. class!)<br><br>
Good luck <b>Dr FAL</b>. You'd be perfect for the RA job! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Also good luck with the xrays. I think it sucks not knowing worse than just being able to deal with the injury.<br><br><b>Ailarie</b> Feel Better! Glad to see you are back at the TM!<br><br><b>Mandy</b> Don't forget to post photos of the new hair did! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Ok, time to go.. Don't wanna be late, right?

Hey all...<br><br><b>Beth</b>, never apologize for the smilies! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
You all seem to be in good form this morning, what with the commercial development, hair stylings, higher callings an' all. All I've done is clean out the litter box.<br><br>
I'm working local today (yay!) so I have to head out in a minute, but I've got 3+strength on tap for tonight.<br><br>
Did the most amazing 4.6 last night - there were portions of the run in total darkness. Not the smartest, but there's something about being alone with just sounds and footsteps and breathing. I was little miss speedy last night and felt like I could have done another 4.6...<br><br>
BTW, loved yesterday's food discussions. Our scale battery died so I can't tell you how much I've gained since I started running. But I think I've got you all beat...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Oh, and <b>Tim</b>, totally with you on the random thought connections while running...the things I think of!<br><br><b>Good vibes/thoughts/etc</b> to Frankie's FIL and Moe's mom and all the others ailing out there...<br><br>
I'll check in later, have a great day all!!

Hey kids!<br><br>
No activity to speak of last night. Went home intending to take a small nap. My dog decided to bark for 2.5 hours straight. And the poor girl is old so her bark is this horse, feeble attempt. She had no real reason to bark, sometimes she just gets in a mood!!! I think she is just smart enough to know mommy rubs her belly when she barks and she was in the mood for a good old rub!<br><br><b>Myron</b> That was great! You get bonus points for starting the day off with that!<br><br><b>Bob</b> Keep us posted on Maggie. I know docs asked all my friends that late in pregnancy, related to blood sugar. But I am just like Maggie, if someone suggests a symptom to me, I obsess over it (the year of the bum gall bladder was insane!!!). Not much longer now, yeah!<br><br>
Speaking of not much long, hey <b>2oh</b> remind us of your date!!!<br><br><b>Frankie</b> any more news?!<br><br><b>Moonie</b> was that post race? You have the best smile, love it!!!<br><br>
And <b>Maureen</b>, you were asking about pink shoes? I seem to recall another fine young man with pink shoes, right?! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Ok folks, gotta get to the lab. Hope you all have a wonderful hump day!

Good morning!<br><br><b>Bob</b>, it's no lie, first time pregnancies are always <i>scary</i> for all involved. Just wait until that little baby pops out and you are standing there saying <i>Now what??</i> LOL<br><br>
Have a great day everyone! Gotta go drop DD1 at school.

Morning, everyone--<br><br>
Sorry I can't keep up with the thread these days. I still have a bunch of applications to get out next week, plus I'm auditing a class with an <i>insane</i> amount of reading, and I'm supposed to be finishing a dissertation. Ah, well.<br><br>
I was talking to a dissertation counselor on Monday, lamenting about how I waste tons and tons of time and the week or two before a deadline, I work like a crazy person to get things done. She said that I'm a classic procrastinator, and if it works for me (it does -- I've never missed a real deadline), why stop now? That was a very weird notion: procrastination is good? So, since I have a Friday and Monday deadline, I'm in crazy work mode.<br><br>
I did get out and run this morning, though. I was confused, and I'm only in w8 of OHR, not w9. Today was 36 minutes, so I decided to revisit the part of my 5k that killed me. I ran it twice! It was hard both times, but I made it. Ended up running 2.98 in 37:18. I never look at the distance until I turn off the timer. I wish I had today because I definitely would have run the extra .02. By the time I realized it, I didn't feel like starting to run again. Ah, well. I still had a good pace for me, despite the long, gradual incline. Knees are feeling a little weak, but hopefully they'll get better today.<br><br>
Tonight is my monthly massage!<br><br>
I hope everyone has a great day!

Hmmmm, I honestly have no idea what you are talking about. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused"><br><br>
I tried to cut my own hair this morning.<br><br>
Needless to say, my hairdresser is sneaking me in tomw.<br><br>
Note to self: it doesn't matter how bad you think your hair looks, it will look worse if you try to fix it yourself on 4 hours sleep.<br><br>
I got nothing else.

That was too damn funny.<br><br>
From yesterday:<br><br><b>{{{{Maggie (aka Mrs boB)}}}}</b><br><br><b>{{{{{Frankie's FIL}}}}}</b><br><br>
handshakes - firm, but do not overdo it. Limp fish = bad, but but trying to prove your manhood by crushing someone's hand is a little Neandrathal.<br><br>
Nothing going on here. Had curriculum night at school for my 3rd grader. That's where us parents get to berate you teachers about why the school is using one math program instead of another, even though you had nothing to do with the decision (Beth and Solar <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">).<br><br>
Hi Ann - glad to see you around these parts.<br><br>
Later taters (whether fried, mashed, etc...)

<b><i>Let's have some fun today brought to you by LL.<br></i><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">LL's SPECIAL OFFER FOR ONE LUCKY 30-SOMETHING.<br><br></span></b>I have in my possession the <b>Timex Bodylink T5F011F5</b> seen here.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/00/00/00/43/83/84/43838485._V46721886_.gif" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
I used it a few times (the watch but never the HRM or the GPS, don't ask) so it's like new. The watch retails for $300.<br><br>
This contains a watch (larger, men's size) HRM strap and GPS module (which you wear on your arm on clip to your shorts.) This watch does what the Garmin Forerunner does (tracks your speed, distance, pace, heart rate etc.) but is also a watch you can wear every day. The watch has all the traditional sport watch functions (stop watch, alarm, timer, etc.)<br><br>
Now the offer................<br><br>
I was going to sell this thing on Ebay but had another idea instead. All you 30s have given so much to me I thought I'd give something to you! The watch.<br><br>
So yes, <b>I'm going to give this watch and all the stuff that comes with it to one of the 30s for nothing!</b><br><br>
If you want the watch all you have to do is <i><b>pick a number between 1 and 100.</b></i> Tomorrow morning I'll simply put all the numbers in a hat and pick a number out. That'll be the winner.<br><br>
A few guidelines.<br><br><b>1. I ask that if you already have a GPS device (i.e. a Garmin) that you don't play. I'd really like to give this to someone who needs it.<br><br>
2. You can post your number in today's thread. At the end of the day I'll go back and sift through the numbers.<br><br>
3. Please make sure you are not picking a number that someone else has already posted (you'll have to look back through the thread too.) I'll put up a current list when I can.<br></b><br>
I hope this makes sense!

Now I'll say good morning.<br><br>
Wow, I got about 11 hours of sleeporama last night. Set a few alarms for along the way to test blood sugars and take my daily Lantus shot, but damn it felt good. Real good. Mmm, crazy good. I almost felt like I didn't need need coffee this morning. But I'll still take the coffee cuz it's just good all on its own even minus the kick of caffeine.<br><br>
That's all I got for now, ramblings about crazy good sleep and coffee.

<span style="font-size:small;">Dangit. Last night's 12 wasn't quite as speedy as my watch showed. I messed up the route and came up short. Not too short but not 7:48 pace for 12 miles. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"> Anywho, I felt great!
