Morning!<br><br>
I'm up incredibly early for a weekend--still struggling with sleep. I realized that when I went from CR to KR, that I also stopped posting the calendar and don't really know who is running what this weekend other than <b>Theia</b> and possibly <b>Pacer</b> and I would guess <b>SR</b>?<br><br>
I'll get the calendar back up in my signature when I find the link again!<br><br>
Although I don't do the <b>LL family album</b> or the <b>BoBcam</b> justice, here are some trip I thought I'd share:<br><br>
Hiking in the true tropical rain forest: Mt Wai'ale'ale<br><img alt="" src="http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/aa178/cranegirl_photo/MtWaleleele.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
South Shore of Kaua'i:<br><img alt="" src="http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/aa178/cranegirl_photo/AViewwithaRoom.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
North Shore of Kaua'i:<br><img alt="" src="http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/aa178/cranegirl_photo/NapaliCoast.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
Yeah, it's hard to be back, but I'm also glad for a bit less sun and humidity!<br><br>
Happy running today all...and remember if you can run fast, run pretty. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Morning Melis!<br>
BEAUTIFUL photos! I'm having some trouble sleeping lately too. grf.<br>
I woke up feeling dehyrdated, but as soon as I take the edge of that I think a run might help so I'm off. No set distance for me, just one foot in front of the other 'til I'm done. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
No QOD from me.<br><br>
Great runs and weekends to all of you.

Great pics, <b>crane</b>!<br><br>
Up early thinking good thoughts for <b>Theia</b> on her Du.<br><br>
Also thinking grumpy thoughts about DS, who had a terrible night of sleeping last night. I love the kid dearly, but the howling at 1:30AM has got to stop. It's not night terrors or anything; he just wants Mommy. And DD was already camped out on our floor because she didn't want to sleep in her bed.<br><br>
Anyhow, <img alt="coffee2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/coffee2.gif"><img alt="coffee.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/coffee.gif"> then Spin class.

Good luck to <b>Theia</b> at the du. Do the du.<br><br>
I went out and did the short loop for my easy week long run. Shaved off about 2.5 minutes in time at the same feeling sort of easy pace from about 3 weeks ago. I also crossed over the 100 mile mark in the process.<br><br>
I don't watch Youtube at work. I've been with a 56K modem at home, but yesterday a high speed connection was put in. So of course I spent some time last evening looking at Youtube stuff. This one is a bit odd.<br><br><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=GMTuvnENPZk" target="_blank">http://youtube.com/watch?v=GMTuvnENPZk</a>

Spin class is out, because DS is awake but DH is not. Crap. Good thing this kid is cute, that's all I gotta say.<br><br>
Just thought I would keep you all posted because I know you really need to know all the minutiae of my life.

Good run <b>Jen!<br><br></b>Great pics <b>Melis.</b><br><br>
It <b>is</b> a good thing they are cute <b>Diane.<br><br>
Running.</b> Left ankle sore this morning. Does not appear to be a running injury, yet running makes it worse. Reminder to self to not do Tri's without more preparation.<br><br>
Leaving this part of paradise tomorrow.<br><br>
BTW, I fear we've become the <b>RMAD</b> thread. Maybe we need two threads - one for the IM stuff and one for a digest version of our day. Just a thought.

Morning gang.<br><br>
I'm up a bit early too waiting for the Verizon tech. to come swap out my Fios modem. It's one of those "he'll be there between 8 AM and 10:20 AM deals. I'm guess it'll be closer to 10:20 AM when he shows.<br><br>
Nothing planned for today. I will be doing the backyard camp out with DD1 tonight so I'll have to get cracking on the tent, fire pit etc. later in the day.<br><br>
Cool pictures <b>Crane</b>. I would love to get there again someday with the family. I'm just not sure the kids would survive the flight.<br><br>
Still no running for me. My leg feels better, not 100% though and I'm just not going to push it with marathon training on the horizon.<br><br>
Sorry you missed class <b>Diane</b>. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
Have a good run <b>Jen</b>!<br><br>
Hope the ankle feels better soon <b>Chris</b>.<br><br>
Nice job on the run <b>Scratch</b>.<br><br>
That's all from me for now. Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Saturday All!!<br><br><b>Melis</b>. . .sigh. . .looks amazing. . .<br><br><b>Theia</b> Hope the DU is fabulous for you!<br><br><b>Other racers</b> Speedy thoughts to you all!!<br><br>
Had the best of intentions to come home and work out last night. Slightly derailed when DH took us to a restaurant instead of home (the dangers of carpooling. . .no control over where you end up. . .<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">). Had a fantastic meal and bottle of Pinot Noir, then ran through the rain to see <i>Order of the Phoenix</i>. Felt like we were 18 again. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> Best part is there's a dog show happening in Duluth right now and we cut through the parking lot with all the trailers/campers with the dogs. . .<br><br>
Today's DH's company party. Unlike mine where showing up early and leaving late is usually how we work it, his we show up late and leave really early. More time at home, then.<br><br>
We are also beer shopping today, and I'm writing up my curriculum for the class. . .Just sos you know. . .<img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
Hope everyone has lovely and safe Saturdays!!

Morning all - Already been up and raced today (time difference works sometimes), so good luck to others racing around today. I have a full report on my blog (follow the link below).<br><br>
Tonigh, there is a free concert in the Square right outside my apartment. It's World Music, but should be cool, and we'll be heading down to enjoy the evening. Can't say I have ever heard of the musicians, Konono No 1, Tarwater, and Cap Pas Cap - but should be fun.<br><br>
Have a great weekend everyone - Catch you soon,<br><br>
Liam

Have a good run <b>Jen</b><br><br>
Nice pictures <b>Melis</b> looks like a perfect place.<br><br><b>LL</b> I meant to say something last night - but I like your new ink - I've been to that lighthouse a few times (in fact I've been to most of the OBX lighthouses).<br><br>
Runningwise - I managed 16 miles this morning at about 8:20 pace. I ran the first 7 pretty easy... then I did 30 mins of interval work... then I just hung in for a few miles until I finished up. The last two miles were more of the chugging along "I think I can - I think I can" variety.<br><br>
I'm off to Maryland now for a wedding...<br><br>
Oh, and shameless self promotion... I'm selling my Garmin 201 on ebay if anyone's interested.
