Will check back later ...good runs to all! And good luck to <b>Philly Tom</b> @his 5K ...bring home the pie dude!

Wow, it just never let up at work today, I even managed to get 20 minutes of overtime out of the pukes <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Now I just need to win the Pick or Powerball tonight and tell them to stick it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br><b>Moon</b> and <b>EQ,</b> great runs and PRs guys<br><br><b>Theia-</b> That sucks, sorry you missed the game<br><br><b>(((( KJ ))))</b> btw, if I may ask, were in CA are you moving to?<br><br>
Hoping to get up and go for a short hike in the AM. Had planned an <b>east</b> run along the canal but in my haste to get out of work, I left my running shoes at work <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="sad2">
Wow <b>EQ</b> - awesome effort! Congrats on a great run and a PR.<br><br>
{{{{{<b>KJ</b>}}}}} - sorry to hear things are the major suck right now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"> Hope things get better for you soon<br><br>
Wow, 6 games of soccer, <b>Winter</b>? That sounds as tiring as some of these runs today, and congrats to your 10 YO
Well I'm up. Gonna go for 7-7.5 on the greenway then meet my friend at the gym for yoga. I am rather sore from yesterday's body pump! That's good, but I hate it when it hurts to laugh. Might start doing that class once/wk and then I can do just 2 other weight days (one leg/one arms) on other days during the week. Will lower the pressure to go 4 x since the body pump class is a combo day.<br><br>
Anyway... need to get out the door!
<b>Moon</b>: Buddy! No doubt about it now, huh? That biking and swimming is making you FAST. Proud of ya! Great job!<br><br><b>EQ</b>: it was running away from the cold that taught you that, i have no doubt. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> Grrrreat running!<br><br><b>Duck</b>: I just caught Survivor Man (i've been on a discovery channel kick since shark week...) and am hooked. He's NUTS, boy. I was watching when he was in the bayou <i>walking through the water with his boat!!!<br><br></i><b>Theia</b> didja get to go, didja, didja? I was sending you good vibes the entire time I was practicing 'down, stay' and making e-w omelets last night.<br><br>
In other news, I hate being sidelined, so does Hank but he was nice enough to check my toe by stepping on it last night at the dog park. good dog. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Rolling Eyes">

It's not just rainy, but kinda stormy here, so running outside may not be an option. I am now looking at my TM. To be honest, I think I'm sort-of frowning at it. I don't know if a TM and vertigo mix, but I may be about to find out.<br><br><b>Roo</b>-sorry about your tootsies. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"><br><br><b>(((KJ)))</b>- The last few years have been a bit rough on you. I think you're next in line for the universe to be nice to you. Moving to CA--the good news is you'll be much closer to Kaua'i!<br><br>
I must say that this group has gotten speedy, strong and multi-faceted in your athletic pursuits. I keep hoping that if I spend enough time here some of it will rub off on me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">
Way to go <b>EQ</b>! Very disciplined, I agree.<br><br>
I was an archaeologist in a previous life (read: career).<br><br>
Well, back from a 7K distance run this morning. First day back after back problems this week. I just couldn't stand to let another day go by without a run! Well, I was slow, but I did it. My back is a little sore right now, but I'm hoping that the run helped stretch out the muscle's a bit.<br><br>
I think it's going to rain today, but I'm going to take my girls to a Pow Wow later. Have a good Sunday all!
Good Sunday morning 30-somethings!<br><br>
Well, I am awake finally and contemplating breakfast before I go for my 18 mile long run today.<br><br>
After the run, I have to cut the grass and do some laundry.<br><br>
I want to say thanks again to all of you for the kind words about the PR yesterday. I did not expect it at all.<br><br>
Oh and <b>mandaroo</b>, I didn't run from the cold in Alaska...I ran <b>because</b> it! That's how I kept warm you see. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> It wasn't until later that I figured out that curling up with a pretty young woman would have had the same effect. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> That's one of those things they <b>DON'T</b> teach at UAF. You have to go UAA for that course!

I'm so sorry for you <b>Theia</b>. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"> I just watched the sportscenter high-lights from the game and WOW...What a game. And, they had 66,000 people there for it. Mr. Beckham did not disappoint, even though LA ended up losing. It's going to be interesting to watch. There's hope that his presence will do two things, one raise the level of play of the existing players both those on his team and those on the other teams, and two attract more european players to the league. We'll see what happens. Currently, the MLS is really not rich enough or prestegious enough to keep the top US and Canadian players from aspiring to go abroad to play in Champions league clubs.<br><br>
Just getting the first cup of coffee in me. I was dragging all day after the 20 miler. I have easy 5 on tap for late today. I've got honey do list chores to do around the house. Closet door to fix, kitchen sink faucet, and then start on the kid's bathroom remodel.<br><br>

Still bummed that <b>Theia</b> couldn't make it up BUT I did get to watch Becks in action ...he looked GOOD peeps, damn GOOD. My only complaint, when he took his shirt off @the end of the game, he was at the opposite end of the field from where we were sitting. I was shouting that he needed to run a lap around the field and tried to encourage others to do the same but it just didn't <i>take</i>.<br><br>

SWEET PR <b>Moon</b>! And fantastic running by everyone yesterday!!!
shit. I just got an email from Ebay that someone has requested an email chage of addy for my acct. And it wasn't me. Shit shit shit. I changed my user id, my email addy (created a new one in fact), my password, changed my passwords on my other email accts, and my paypal acct. But that sucks.
This happened to my husband last month.
Jill, did anything come of it?
It's probably a phishing scam email, Moe. I get those all the time. I've even called ebay (they answered the phone and everything! very helpful!) Call them. DON'T click on the link!! Go to the ebay site yourself and get the contact us link....<br><br><b>Maria</b>- I was just starting to cool off from the run, then you posted that photo! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> Yummmmmmmmyyyyy! Juan Pablo's not bad himself, tbh! I really need to start watching more soccer! It's the only game I can sit through and watch, even on TV. We've got free Fox Soccer Channel since yesterday for a few weeks. Might take advantage of that!!<br><br>
Well, did 7 miles. Wish I had done my 7.5, but I didn't know that my friend was not gonna show to yoga, and I was pressed for time after my friend from England called this morning while I was getting ready. She's moving to Spain in a few days, so I couldn't just talk later! Ah well... I did an extra mile yesterday so I guess that makes up for it. I could have gone farther, and I guess that's what counts! And I saw <b>Torque</b> riding his bike! He had the distinctive mustache and everything. It's funny because we looked at each other as we passed like we both were thinking <i>i know you!</i> Funny..... I've actually seen him often on the trail lately.<br><br>
Just watched a cool story on the Today show! George Michael- who owns the piano John Lennon used to write <i>Imagine-</i> is taking it to all these sites where there were tragedies (ie, VA Tech, NYC on Sept 11...) and putting it on display as a symbol of the song I guess is how it could be described (if you know the song/lyrics, it's pretty inspiring). Pretty cool... Would LOVE to see it. They said it will be in front of the Dakota on Dec. 8th where John got shot. Might have to bribe <b>Maria</b> to take a photo of it for me!!!<br><br><b>Crane</b> how did the TM go?? Hope that vertigo is gone soon! Do you know why you have it?<br><br><b>Jill</b>- do tell me more about your former life! HOW COOL! I love archaelogy, anthropology and sociology in general. Of course, my fave is lingustics. I want to get my PhD in either comparative linguistics or historical linguistics. Historical would be cool since I'd get to work in some of the anthro interest. If you haven't been to Jamestown, you should go! They still have active excavations going on and every year we go and see the progression. Very cool what they have been able to uncover (post holes from the original wood wall from 400 years ago!) What made you change? I know it's not all Indiana Jones, but the research would be fascinating.<br><br>
Ok, just cooling off with my coffee (i know, that sounds wierd!) and gonna get a shower and try to get the rest of my cleaning done around the apt. Exciting, I know!<br><br>
Happy Sundays!

Yeah, <b>Moe</b>, are you sure that was actually from Ebay? A lot of those are phishing scams. The links in those emails often go to places that aren't Ebay.
It was actually from was in my messages on their site. I hope nothing else has been compromised.
Good morning peeps,<br><br>
Just came back from 8.50miles (1:29:05) in the most perfect conditions. Beautiful run. So I made a mistake. I thought my 11 miler was last week, and I felt like I'd been slacking so i decided on 8 miles. Then I get home and log my run in only to realize I ran the 11 on Tuesday of this week. D'oh! I'm so mixed up with the days lately. It still felt great! I just feel like an idiot now...<br><br>
I slept well last night until the dog threw up on the carpet in my bedroom. I couldn't figure out if it was a gymongous hairball or a mouse...after that there was just no going back to bed. ewwwwwwwwwww.....gag....gulp....breath....ok i'm good!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Coffee <b>now</b>. thank you very much!<br><br><b>{Maureen}</b> watch those scammers!<br><br><b>{Mandy's Toe}</b><br><br><b>{Theia}</b><br><br><b><span style="color:#00FF00;">Maria!!!</span></b> you lucky girl! love me some Becks!<br><br><b>Trevor:</b> Happy Stay at Home Holiday!<br><br>
Happy vacation <b>Torque!</b><br><br>
Is it just me or is it really quiet here this weekend?

Hey Gang!<br><br>
Skimming through, must catch up later. . .<br><br>
Got the best compliment EVER: 2 1/2 year old niece says, this morning - as we're reading on the couch and her mother asks her, "Do you want some breakfast before we leave?" Niece looks at her, thinks for a moment and says, "two more minutes okay mom? I love Mary's house." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> I feel like I win! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Okay - need to bike/run and then collapse and then catch up. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
(<b>Winter</b> - I too had a blast on Friday, THANK YOU!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">)<br><br>
Oh! I did see that <b>MOON</b> and <b>MAPLE</b> both need some serious congratulating!!

Ugh, <b>Auntie Moe</b>, that sucks.<br><br>
There were 5.4 miles covered. There may have been running thrown in there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="hiding">I'm a rotten patient, or perhaps an impatient patient.<br><br>
In other news, was <i>no one</i> impressed by my post about getting carded last night? Oh, well. It made my day.
