<p>Good morning BBS.  I got in 5 miles today in 42:38(8:31).  Lately it seems that last mile of my runs has been faster than it should, but it does not wear me out.  7:46 for the 5th mile today.  I think I need to keep the paces more even though.  Keep up the good running everyone.</p>

<p>Mom - it's so much fun though, isn't it?! Hope you're back to normal tomorrow.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BBS - nice run, and I hear you on making the best of things! :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Finally done with my work "week" of Tues/Wed/Thurs. As simple and short as that sounds, it's not when you add in the need to get runs in and lifting, as well as sleeping and eating on top of the 3 12 hour shifts. As rough as it is, I love my 4 day weekends! Even longer this time around since I'm going camping with a roommate after the weekend, so I won't be around for about a week and a half. Hope everyone has a great weekend and next week as well!</p>

<p>Hey, hey what's cookin'?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So... struggled out of bed; ran to gym (3 miles); did some half-arsed attempt at upper body strength training; chatted to a buddy about his recent triathlon and DW's HIM this weekend; bumped into some other buddies, just before I left, and joined them for the start of their run for a 4.2 mile return leg.  Temps in the low 70s, sun shining, humidity in the 70% range.  The sweat was flowing.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>4boysmom</strong> - Rest up!  What's up with the coyote boots? Are they ACME brand? </p>
<p><strong>BBS</strong> - what flavor shake?</p>
<p><strong>Alex</strong> - Busy busy.  Make the most of those longs weekends...</p>
<p><strong>kfuller</strong> - that's a good sign, right?</p>

<p>We're doing Saddle Ridge Ranch.  Wide open spaces are callin' my name, Ridin' the range over mountains and plains, Searchin' for answers I need in my life.......  Stupid song got stuck in my head on both runs this week. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/mad.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title="">  But, the kids are lovin' it!  So, yah, it's a cowboy theme, hence the cowboy boots.  If they post photos, I'll post 'em here.</p>

<p>Nice running etc this morn.  Off to the ferry and a little work.  Feel pretty good today which is a day off. </p>

<p>It's Strawberry Festival on the island this weekend.  Thousands of folks come from places unknown in search of the strawberries that don't exist.  Nevertheless, there is a parade, booths, bands, and no parking. Hot dang!</p>

<p>Hey y'all.  Another hot day, here.  A few days ago I got a nasty blister on the side of my foot.  I put a bandaid on it and promptly got another right next to it.  yesterday I ran 4 miles and relaized the discomfort was affecting my gait.  So today I am going to aquajog or ride a stationary bike or something.  I guess if I am going to be "injured" during marathon training, the first week is the time to do it.</p>

<p>Hey all,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Well, got second run in this week.  did another 2m and still felt good except the heat is a bugger.  Tomorrow will see if I can double it into 4 since I feel like I can do it. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Stay cool all and enjoy looking for the strawberries Dan</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Jill - Hope the pup is doing better, I know mine has been sleeping all the time because of the heat....  She has been joining me on the runs but I think I am going to leave her home tomorrow for the 4m.  Plus thanks for the update on Loopy !!</p>
