Good morning to you all. Would you believe I got to my gym this morning to take a yoga class & then run, and within 10 mins of the yoga class they vacated the building due to fire? Or suspected fire, I guess. There was a strong "electrical" burning smell and some smokey haze. So I'm trying to reschedule my morning and will attempt to get back there later on, after a fancy pedicure that DH gave me a gift certificate for in my Christmas stocking.<br><br>
If they're still closed later on, I'll do the stationary bike at home instead, plus some yoga. It's too cold for me to run outside -- only 8 degrees, and I have asthma. I only run outdoors in IRC.<br><br>
What a way to start the day!<br><br>
BTW I saw that "some" teams on the VRAA are trash talking already to other teams. I won't name names.<br><br>

3 miles with Ralph and Andy and Spencer and Sonya and Brit. They stayed with me the first mile and then I told them to take off. It was a good run for me.<br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">I did something funny with my instant toe warmers... first off, I just carried them and they kept my gloved hands toasty. Butt. Then. I stuck them to the driver's seat. It looked like I had placed two pantyliners on my seat. Butt. My buns were nice and toasty.</span><br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">Who'd a thought a 95 Honda Civic EX would have heated seats? The poor gal's version.</span><br>

A few replies from the thread last night, when I was picking up DS from his auntie's house...Under Econo's hypnosis, I'm chanting my mantra, I will run a 4:30. A year ago in SoCal I ran a 5:40 so how cool would that be? Erika, at least on the mill in those warm temps you'll be ready for the heat in Carlsbad.<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> Choovie, I thought of that episode of Arthur, "Locked in the Library." I loved watching that show with the kids. Now DD & her "sleepover" friends stay up until 4:00 giggling. I've been really tired at night so I can tune them out, at least.

Trash talk is fuel for some people's fires. For me... not so much.<br><br>

My Achilles felt much better. I'm still icing it, but I think I have turned a corner.

Good Morning Folks! Right on mike, glad your healing quickly. Looks like everyone is on the upswing from reading yestarday's post.<br>
Evanflien found her dog<img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"> and rose is running!<br><br>
Well the new avatar will hopefully inspire me to do more of my kind of running, nothing as sure footed as the Rocky Mountain Goat.<br><br>
Anxiously waiting for our caregiver to get her for my run this morning.<br><br>
Good Runs All, and good luck everyone on the VRAA games! Larry

Good Morning All,<br><br>
Some nice runs done this morning - well done!<br><br>
It's still to frigid here: 3F this morning, so I 6 miles on the TM, with 6x2 minute intervals with 1 minute recovery jogs in between. It's amazing how the body adapts! 47:34 (7:57 overall pace)<br><br>
Rest tomorrow, and then a LR Sunday. Enjoy yourselves!<br><br>
Mike<br><br><br>
P.S. - I'm psyched! Last radiation treatment is tomorrow morning - then normal life goes on - YEAH! <img alt="" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/../images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;">

Riley/Susan, how scary about having to vacate your gym because of fire but glad you are OK.<br><br>
Rochrunner, Rose, milbot, irrunmike you are brave people to run in this BRRRR!! Rose, I like how you used those handwarmers…hey, anything to keep warm!<br><br>
Perchcreek, whoa that is an interesting picture. Never see THAT in Los Angeles!<br><br>
Hi Triple J! Antag is always trash talking. Have a nice XT day.<br><br>
Lyndenrunner hope your partner’s knee gets well.<br><br>
Opie (aka Karl?) I think my DH and I met you a year ago at OC Marathon. I hope you do well in Carlsbad. I won’t be there this year so say hi to everyone (SLOJim, Sherie, etc.)<br><br>
Runsthebitteroot, I hope your caregiver arrives soon.<br><br>
Rest day for me today…supposedly a big rain storm is coming to So. Cal. (not here yet). I have to go to the allergy doc now and get my weekly shot. Supposedly this will make me better in 2 years so I can get off all these steroidal based inhalers.

Did'nt have time to read everybody's posts yet will read them later. I did see pictures though. When I see pictures of ice sickels on glasses (perchcreek :notworthy<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">, it really make me feel like a wus since I ran on the Treadmill for 3 miles because I didn't feel like running in the cold.

No sleep last night (<i>blame it on the monster on-call night).</i> . No running <i>(blame it on the monster on-call night)</i>. No time to play in the fresh snow that has been falling around here for 24 hours straight <i>(blame it on the monster called work).</i> .<br><br>
Econo, I am glad to hear you found your pants...what about the theses?<br>
scooney-running on the TM sometimes is harder than running in the cold weather.<br>
Lubduck...easy does it...glad to see you are keeping us company again. We missed you.<br>
dromedary...keep at it with your shots...it will be worth it.<br>
Opie...you are going to get your 4:30 in Carlsbad...I know you can...I know you can...<br>
Rosie...3 painless miles!!!!!<br>
Jura...I celebrate with you those first few miles. Hooray!!<br><br>

good grief - how can one only lurk to catch up and not post something after yesterday's daily thread? Econo is losing her bra in the streets of Eugene? Is this a 21st century of burning the bra? nowadays, burning just adds to global warming you know . . . so have to find new ways to "ditch" the bra, eh? Were you lucky enough to find the thesis?<br><br>
we're getting hit with pretty heavy rains here . . . I'm hearing that this will be "rains of historical proportion" . And as much as Millbot loves running in the rain, I think I'll still head to the dry TM for a run today.<br><br>
Erika - I'm SO incredibly ecstatic that you found Cheyenne!! This played out just like how we lost our pups. As the crow flies, they were about 2 miles away, but by car, it was more like 5 or 6 - up over the backside of the mountain that we live on.<br><br>
thanks for the message and {{hugs}} folks. I don't get stressed or down very often - rarely in fact - so when it hits me, it's like a ton of bricks. But I'll get through it. Thanks frenz.<br><br>
Have a good day everyone.

*phew* Larry changed his ass in for a goat.<br>
Econo found her dirty laundry, what about the thesis?<br>
irunmike is done with treatments<br>
Millbot is a nice guy who doesn't get off on trash talk and is healing nicely.<br>
{{{{{{{{Tammy}}}}}} needs a hug we are here for you if you need to rant PM away<br>
Nice run Rosie/teamate but take it easy, we get poinks for miles no matter how slow they are<br>
Perch, Dennis could use some water running advice in the 24 hour training station<br><br>
OH yeah, going to run after work then take a weight training class.<br><br>
Go Team Q!!
