<p>and it's early!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Race day today.  I have to leave in about 30 minutes.  I guess I should find something to eat. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>After the race, I come  home,  take a shower, hopefully take a short nap and then it is off to the soccer pitch for pictures and then to help coach DD's team. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Not sure when I will get around to writing my race report, probably sometime tomorrow.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Later!</p>

<p>Good Luck, Eric!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I had planned on doing a 13.1 mile run with you, but was surprised by the arrival of my mom and her husband from WI yesterday.  Apparently DW and DS were in cahoots to get them over here for this weekend as a surprise for me.  Well...it sure was a surprise!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So as to not be all burned out I will pass on this run this weekend and just enjoy the time with them.</p>

<p>Good morning!  Good luck, FB.  Can't wait to hear how it goes!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm off to a race, too.  First I am handing out chips, then running a 15k.  Later, the kids have soccer, and then I have a meeting with my church discussion group.  Tonight is a wine tasting and silent auction for my kids' daycare.  Busy busy!</p>

<p>Todd,</p>
<p>What a nice surprise! Your kidlettes are sweeties for wanting to plan the get-together. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>

<p>Jebba,</p>
<p>Wow! You certainly do have a busy day ahead. Enjoy!</p>
<p> </p>

<p>How depressing is it to read about running [duh, on a running board] when I'm injured with this PF?</p>
<p>Heck, I'm just a middleagedrecreationaljogger...yet still get bummed. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/dontknow.gif" style="width:37px;height:15px;" title=""></p>

<p>Kudos to the DW for having to 'entertain' my mother and hubby for 3 hrs before I got home.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>OY!  I am surprised the DW didn't crack open the wine until AFTER I got home at 330p.</p>

<p>This morn I'll do some lifting [upper] and/or Kettlebells. The kettlebells will get the cardio fix without the pounding of running or plyo.</p>
<p>Fingers Xd that there's no pain which will force me to quit, walk upstairs, and begin ranting.</p>
<p>Mr. Porty is already preparing to hide under the couch in anticipation. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>The rest of the day will be spent doing domestic chores and watching college gridball.</p>

<p>Seriously scary. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/shock.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title=""></p>

<p>Busy day at work followed by I am not sure, LOL. The rain has stopped temporarily. A lot of places around here got up to over 9 inches. There is a lot of serious flooding. Fun times.</p>

<p>GOOD Morning!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This is what I'm doing today:</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a href="http://www.pahikes.com/trails/standing-stone-trail/183-standing-stone-trail-climbing-the-thousand-steps" target="_blank">http://www.pahikes.com/trails/standing-stone-trail/183-standing-stone-trail-climbing-the-thousand-steps</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Plus some more distance on the trail beyond that, I"m told.  So we can eat lunch at a nice vista.  I think my friend is trying to kill me!  <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//biggrin.gif"></p>

<p>Awesome hike!  I am beat, though.  We were hiking for nearly 5 hours.   We went up the 1000 steps (oy!  I was out of breath), then hiked nearly to the summit using a series of switchbacks, so it was easier hiking there.  After enjoying a lunch with an awesome view, we hiked back down.  Going down the steps was WAY harder on my knee!  </p>
