Hi everyone,<br><br>
I've been reading this thread for a couple months and I absolutely LOVE the community you have going here. I've been wanting to join but I have a bit of time before I formally exit my 20's (I can't wait...and all my friends are 35+ anyway). I didn't want to join under false pretenses, but I'm hoping I can still pop in from time to time?<br><br>
I've been running and tri-ing for about 3 years, and I'm in the chunky-but-fit category, aiming to be in the less-chunky-and-fitter group. I run a comfortable 11:00 pace 1/2 marathon but am working on speed as I try to lose my last 25 pounds (45 off so far but have had a wicked 14-month plateau! I think it's the Cheez-Its...).<br><br>
Anyway, I really enjoy all the positive energy that you guys have and I'd love to join in, but I will totally respect it if you'd rather I wait until my birthday....I'll just read with envy until then<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">.<br><br>
Happy running,<br>
Biah

Yeah!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/hello2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hello1"> Welcome to the 30s! You don't really have to be that age, it is just a state of mind. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Jump in, there is a questionnaire that will get posted tomorrow. I don't have a copy of it. I wonder if anyone still around has it. It is just fun.

There is at least one other who posts regularly, who isn't quite 30. I think it's fine... we have some 40's too... we're a pretty all inclusive group.<br><br>
It's just a general rule, that if we have a gathering, the non 30's are responsible for buying the 30's beers... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

You are going to just let her in <i>that</i> easily? No hazing? What about the intensive interview under the 400 kw lightbulb hanging from the ceiling? And the research paper on 30-Something culture?<br><br>
What? You mean you did that only for <i>me</i>? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Welcome. We have a sense of humor around here as well. Oh, and just wait until Friday!

Jump right in Biah - we are not really picky about rules and such. Just be prepared for some goofiness and fun, some good running advice and support, and a little ribbing now and then.

Hell - I only make the 40's for another 3 months, never mind the 30's, before hitting one beginning with a 5, and they let me in <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">.....<br><br>
All are welcome - <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Maybe we need to re-think the name of the Club <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> ?

<b>Biah</b>: You are most welcome to join our little group. First I must ask. Do you like hockey? What is your position on beer? and do you have any good cookie recipes?
