I'll start the running thread....<br><br>
Good luck all the racers this weekend (and runners too).<br><br>
I woke up at 3AM with the urge to pee, and to the sound of rain hitting my roof. It's been abnormally dry in Virginia for the last 3 or 4 months. We're on water restrictions... so I know rain is good... but WTF does it have to come on race day... oh well... it appears to be clearing now, and the start is supposed to be partly sunny.<br><br>
I had my breakfast, took care of all my business... and had a little water. I'm pretty much ready to go. I'm going to take a quick shower and head to the start soon. I'm meeting some non KR friends before the start. I hope to be meeting some KR friends at the finish.<br><br>
Have a gread day everyone!

Good luck, Myron!!<br><br>
I awoke and had breakfast myself a lil' bit ago. Nervous. Not because I woldn't finish, but because I have a full mary in 4 weeks and don't want an injury. But I also want a PR on an easier course than last PR. We'll see how I feel in the first few miles of PR pace, if it's too tough I'll just back off.

Because I haven't been posting much, I'm not sure if people are still using the calendar in my signature...I could also post this as a sticky, I guess??<br><br>
Hey, MN peeps..anyone running the <b>Lifetime Turkey Trot 5k</b> in MSP? I am FOR SURE! I'm also pacing a friend to finish in 28, however, so it will be truly not a race effort for me.<br><br>
Anyone? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>

morning! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><br><br>
Got a great run in at the shore yesterday. The weather was great, the ocean looked beautiful....<br><br>
Now I'm back at home and heading to the gym. Got 5 on tap with intervals, plus some serious stretching and core work in the game plan.<br><br><b>Good luck to Myron and all our weekend racers!!!!</b>

Good luck <b>Myron</b> and <b>Flem</b>! Same to any other racers who haven't checked in yet today.<br><br>
I've got 7 or 8 on tap for this morning. No biggie, I guess...<br><br>
Have a great Saturday, everyone! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/hello.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hello2">

A sticky would be a great idea, <b>Melis!</b><br><br><span style="font-size:x-large;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">Good luck Myron & Flem!!!!</span></span><br><br><span style="color:#000000;">Its snowing here. Not sticking but snowing and will probably turn to rain sometime this morning. I wanted to run in it but DH isn't up yet and DD is so I'm cleaning until he gets up. We have a busy day planned, we have to spend an hour in the basement going through boxes (fall cleaning so to speak) then shopping for clothes for DH for work. Hopefully taking DD to see the Bee Movie and I have to get in a run in there somewhere! Worst case I'll hit the 'mill if its dark by the time I can.</span>

Good luck to our runners today!<br><br>
I think I'll run later on. DH is only working til lunch so I should be able to get out for a few miles when he gets home. That is, if I can find time with all this stuff I have to do around the house. Going away is nice...but then there's all the catching up when you get back.<br><br>
I noticed there's a marathon/half/10k going on tomorrow, too. I think I'll see about joining in for the 10k.

I went up over 400 miles of running for the year this morning. I've also already run 40.4 miles this month which is more than I ran in all of June and it took me an hour less of time than June did.

Good luck Flem and Heather amd Noni - who am I missing?<br><br>
Picking up new shoes today. I have 430 miles on the current pair, and I am starting to get blisters and stuff. And considering these were the pair I ran with through the hot sweaty summer, they reek. Getting the same model if I can - New Balance 767. Anyone else wear these?<br><br><img alt="" src="http://www.i-run.fr/photos/300.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
Planning on 9 tonight after the kids are in bed.<br><br>
Thanks for the input yesterday. I will come up with my own modified Daniels like plan. I thought that having a max LR of 10 seemed a little light, especially since I am building towards an April HM, and I will have my LR up to 9 by tonight (hopefully).

Morning all...<br><br><b>Good luck Myron and Flem!!</b><br><br>
Another rest day while waiting to see how things are tomorrow morning. Lots of errand-running instead. Plus, the expo is supposed to have Bill Rodgers, Fleet Feet and some other stuff, so I'm hoping to head down there and collect some nice discount running items.

I tried looking up Myrn's rogrss - no luck. It's exciting to think in a few hours we could have another 30's representative at Boston!
