Morning Maria and everyone who comes along.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Have fun in NY! After reading about a lot of the contenders, I really wish I could be at the trials now, too! Sounds so exciting, especially with the loop course where you can see them several times! Take lots of photos to share! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
I'm up and getting ready for a last minute 10 mile race. I'm really doing it as a LR but it's good to have the race atmosphere to push you on a little bit. I hope to be around 1:50, but we'll see because the course (5M x2) is pretty hilly. I'd like to do 13 actually, so we'll see if I can do just a little more. Depends because I'm riding with someone else, who I'm hoping is going for the 15 miler and that will give me the extra time.<br><br>
Anyway, gonna just finish my coffee then get ready! Have a great Sat. Looks like the weather will be fabulous all over!<br><br>
Back later to hear about all the coolness that goes on with everyone! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

Morning.<br><br>
I'm awake and waiting for the sun to come up now. Everything feels and seems to be in good shape for doing my longest run before Philly, so I just want the sun to rise and me to go out and do it.<br><br>
Good luck on your run, <b>Beth</b>, good luck to our NYC runners/spectators, good luck to the Minnesota folks.

Good morning, folks. Wow, look at all the early birds! It's Saturday. Isn't everybody supposed to sleep in? I'm up to feed a baby. What's your excuse? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
I've got 13 miles planned for later this morning. Then an afternoon of babysitting and watching football while the wife runs some errands. Fun fun fun.<br><br>
Good luck, <b>Beth</b>. And <b>MN</b> folks. And <b>NYC</b> folks, who I will hopefully see tomorrow...

Hey, everyone.<br><br>
I'm up and getting ready to go to Spin class. I did get this article in my email about how marathons have changed over the years: <a href="http://www.salon.com/mwt/feature/2007/11/03/marathon/" target="_blank">http://www.salon.com/mwt/feature/2007/11/03/marathon/</a>.<br><br>
Good luck to all racers!

Good luck <b>NYC racers</b> tomorrow

Good morning!<br><br>
How far are you running this morning <b>Scratch</b>? To quote the old Virginia Slims ads, <i>"You've come a long way, baby!"</i><br><br><b>Beth</b>, have a good race.<br><br><b>Bob</b>, some of us are up because we've gone through what you're going through, and life is just never the same. Sleeping in is a once a year luxury anymore. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br><b>RFTL</b>, maybe I'll tune into that as well.<br><br>
Good day everyone!

Hey kids. I'm posting from my dentist's office, because the crown that was put in on Thursday popped out <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"><br><br>
Good luck to all racers, long runners, and spectators!

Good morning everyone! Gotta get stirring and get ready to head to the stadium. We have a 1 pm game and I have to be there at 10. I'll pop in later this evening to see how everyone's day is going.

Good morning, peeps!<br><br>
First, GOOD LUCK to <b>Beth</b> and our <b>NYC</b> and <b>MN</b> racers this weekend! Kick some ass!<br><br>
I've been fighting a cold for the past week but it seems to have gotten the better of me. I woke up coughing with a sore throat and laryngitis <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad">. Worst thing is, the weather is absolutely perfect for a long run. I was hoping to get 12+ in but only had the energy for 7. GRRRR<br><br><b>(((Kini)))</b> Hope you are feeling better today.<br><br><b>(((Litch)))</b> How did you manage to lose a crown??<br><br><b>Maples</b>, have fun today at the game!<br><br><b>Scratch</b>, good luck with your 12 miler! I was running for over a year before I even attempted a run that long.<br><br>
I'm off the take DS to the rink for some ice skating. Have a great day, everyone!

And this is different for <b>Dom</b> because....??? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
(Don't hit me, ya know I love ya...)<br><br>
I'm outta here, but before I go, I wanted to post this. I think this is both fun AND running related, so <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/occasion14.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="occasion5">:<br><br><a href="http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,307518,00.html" target="_blank">http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,307518,00.html</a><br><br><i><b>Oh, but wait</b></i>, then there is <b>this</b>:<br><br><a href="http://www.cnn.com/2007/HEALTH/conditions/10/05/hfh.alcohol.breast.cancer/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.cnn.com/2007/HEALTH/condi...cer/index.html</a><br><br><b>And, this</b>:<br><br><a href="http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2007/fit.nation/obesity.map/" target="_blank">http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2007/fit...n/obesity.map/</a><br><br><br>
Nevermind. I think I'll run an extra mile today, too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br><b>Diane</b>, please stay safe, K?

Morning all!<br><br>
First of all, best of luck to our racers this weekend! Kick some ass while you're out there!<br><br><b>Maccabeth</b> - heh.. I didn't read your posts from last night until now, but it looks like you went to the event at Stone Mountain this morning. So did <b>Radioyada</b>! I figured I wasn't up to 5 miles yet, so I stayed home. I'm not sure if hubby was going for the 5 or 10 miler.<br><br>
Hit the TM this morning for another 2.5 run, with .5 total warm up/cool down. Decided to have a little fun with the atmosphere, though. The workout room is our closed-in garage, and although it has a door with a window in it to the yard, it can get pretty dark in there.<br><br>
So... I decided to slightly open the door to the inside of the house, for a little bit of light. Then, I turned on my <span style="color:#800080;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><i>two tabletop, rotating "mini disco balls"</i></span></span>. Remember the ones at the skating rinks that would shine colored dots everywhere? Well I had two smaller versions of those going today, providing a rainbow of moving, colorful entertainment. With the rest of the room fairly dark, and the music cranked.. (and no one to watch me be that silly).. let's say that I definitely had FUN on this morning's run. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
(anyone have some disco smileys?)<br><br>
Now, I'm sitting down, eating some much needed veggie soup, and then I'm out of here for a few errands.<br><br>
Hope everyone has a GREAT day today!!!

Hey gang.<br><br>
just finished watching the marathon trials on the computer at work - yes, I got strange looks - as I get ready for a looooong day. I might make it home in time to watch the Ducks kick ASU ass.<br><br><b>MN people</b> - have fun, not too much fun though! Pictures are required.<br><br><b>NYC people</b> - make us proud! Wait, you already do. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/headbang.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headbang"><br><br>
might be able to get a run in tomorrow.

You <i>rock</i>, man. Seriously. I agree with the sentiment that you've come a long way, and it inspires me as I re-start my running career. Same with you, <b>maccabeth</b>.<br><br>
Nor'easter here today. We are allowing the kids to stay in their PJs all day and take out as many toys as they want, 'cause otherwise it's just gonna get ugly. I'm planning to fix them an indoor picnic for lunch.

Turned the TV on and caught the last 200 yards of Ryan Hall's finish. Broke the Olympic Trials marathon record. Olympics, here we come!

I thought I would get in a little run today, but the weather is looking grim. (Hurricane Noel is brushing up against us today.) Unless I get to the gym later (and before I meet up with friends for dinner), I don't think I'll go. I will run tomw.<br><br>
Since I know I'm gonna be walking much of Philly, I've at least increased my walking miles this week. 3.5 twice this week, probably will get in more tomw as well as running. I'm counting total mileage now. <i>One foot after the other....</i><br><br>
Best of luck racers this weekend!!!!<br><br>
The play last night was terrific! And while I did see some aquaintances' willies, it was very tastefully done. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Bye for now.<br><br>
Moe<br><br>
ETA: Great job, Scratch!!!

Speaking of Noel, it wasn't wet here, but it made for plenty of wind. The last 1.5 miles I did were into the wind and I was cursing some.

Good morning 30s!<br><br>
It's nice to check in and not have to go through 300 posts! I can actually see what some people are doing!<br><br><b>Scratch</b> - Congrats on the training run!<br><br><b>Beth</b> - Hope your "race" went well.<br><br><b>Maples</b> - Enjoy the game.<br><br><b>Moe</b> - I know exactly what your saying about the weather. I have to run later, and it's going to be pouring with 20 MPH sustained and 40-50 gusts.<br><br><b>Everyone</b> - I hope you're having a good day.<br><br>
As for me, Tropical Storm Noel is going to brush us today. It's going to be a nasty day here, so I don't know what I'm going to do today.<br><br>
It was nice to sleep in today. This past week, I was awake every night at 3:00am. It wasn't something waking me up, I kept waking up thinking of someone.<br><br>
I have to say, I really like a few of the avatars...especially <b>Running From The Law</b> and <b>Ailarie's</b> smile. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Oh well, enjoy your day.
