Morning all.<br><br>
So there's a phrase that's really been motivating me over my entire year. It's a little corny but when ever I heard/hear it it really reminded/reminds makes me push it. During mile 18 of the Philadelphia Marathon someone on the side of the road had a big sign with the phrase on it. I was starting to waiver a bit during that point in the race and once I saw the sign I knew I'd make it in. I kept repeating the phrase over and over again in my head.<br><br>
Well last night I decided to make the phrase a part of me forever. I've always wanted a "traditional" American tattoo and this was a great way to combine my phrase with the Eagle - which means many things to me.<br><br>
Hope you like it.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v201/lgreenberg/Untitled-1-21.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

Wow! LL. I'm having sympathy arm pains! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';"><span style="font-size:x-large;"><span style="color:#FF0000;"><br><br>
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NETTIE!</span></span></span><br><br>
Morning peeps. Up way too early for the time I went to bed last night. It's a good thing, though. I have stuff to get done around the house and also in terms of running errands. (am going to run, too, but that's for the other thread. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Rolling Eyes"> )<br><br>
Hope everyone has a great weekend! Hopefully you've got nice weather (no rain/snow!) It must be windy out there because I can hear the wind moaning at my window.<br><br>
Later!

Wow, <b>Larry</b>! Looks cool! I've been thinking of one to get about my running, but a) I haven't decided on the design, and b) it'll probably be bit smaller than yours <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Hey guys! I've been meaning to get on for the last two days but haven't had time.<br><br>
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I ran my Turkey Trot (which will be in a RR regarding my last 3 races in 11 days) came home and quickly began prepping my turkey and getting it in the oven. Once that was done I was peeling sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, etc and before I knew it my folks were here. My dad looked at me strangely since I still had on my running gear including the felt/feather turkey butt pinned to the bottom of my shirt! Jumped in the shower came back down for appetizers and then it was time to eat. Needless to say I was beat by the time everyone left. I fell asleep at 8:30 while watching TV with Avery.<br><br>
Yesterday I just caught up on my Tivo'd shows and laid around all day. Today I did some cleaning and I think my mom and I are taking Avery to see <i>Enchanted</i> for a matinee.<br><br>
Talk to you later!<br><br><br><span style="font-size:xx-large;"><span>Happy Birthday, Nettie!!!</span></span>

Nice artwork <b>LL!</b><br><br>
Busy day here. DH just took the girls to a local park to have pictures done with their cousins. It's about 30 degree. Brrrrr!<br>
We have DD2's 5th birthday party today. We're going to make treasure boxes at an art shop. Should be fun. After that, it's off to my in-laws to celebrate Hanukkah a little early. Then, I will sleep!<br><br>
Take care all!

Morning friends -<br><br>
Just me and the boys today. My wife and DD are at a cheerleading competition (staying at a hotel about 5 minutes from CoachT as far as I can tell) so it is boys day here. So far, we had chocolate chip pancakes, and we have been abusing the game cube <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> Making home made pizza later, and they are lighting the Christmas trees on our town green this evening so we will be there with hot cocoas - it is fraking cold here. It was 16 when I woke up. Christmas trees should be neat. The local Chamber of Commerce likes to claim that we have the largest town green in New England, which is basically a lie. But it is nice.

Ok, so I was playing around on Facebook, searching through members who went to my high school when I came across a few I know. Oddly (because this did NOT seem to fit him in HS!), one is now a Baptist minister at the church around the corner from where we grew up! The other was a guy I knew pretty much since elementary school and we even went to the same college. Heh. I just sent him a random message. From his page, I gathered he's a runner since he talked about being in NY for the marathon and in one photo had the Peachtree Road Race shirt on. He's probably gonna think I'm a complete dork (since I was one all through school) but whatever. Seemed like a good idea at the time!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarassed">

<b>Beth</b>, I'm always kind of wondering what my facebook long-lost pals are thinking when I get in touch, but you're just doing what it's meant to do. Reconnect with people! And when you have shared interests, so much the better! Hot is just a major bonus!<br><br><b>Larry</b> - what a tattoo! You're covering those arms fast and furious! I didn't get a chance to check out the arms over the weekend - my vote is for a non-winter-y meetup next time (!!) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br><b>HAPPY BIRTHDAY NETTIE!!!!!</b> - I hope it's a very good one...<br><br><b>Heather</b> - you're a super-woman, running races, making an entire T'giving dinner?!?! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
I am on my second day of super-lounge-fest. Though yesterday I got out on my bike, went for an early dinner with my best friend (is it not sad that she has approx. 2.5 hours where she can get away before baby-who-won't-take-a-bottle needs her?) We pack a lot into the few hours of respite whenever she can get and it was just so nice to see her and have a good visit. (Kind of like how I felt last weekend...)<br><br>
I got a brilliant idea for a room renovation last night (yes, there was booze involved), I have to go scope out what it would take to purchase materials and do it myself. I suppose I should do a few other things too, like finish some of the other ongoing projects, finish winterizing the place, etc. But that room is going to be SO COOL!<br><br>
Anyhow, have a nice Saturday all!

Speaking of <b>facebook</b>. Any 30 here are more than welcome to add me to their friends if they wish. Does it matter if we haven't met in real life? Up to you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> I have a new page but enough stuff on it now to feel like it's too empty.

There are two areas which are off limits to tattoos - the face/head and the other I'll leave to your imagination. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

<b>Larry</b> - Nice tattoo!<br><br><b>Lori</b> - I like Nettie's name suggestion from yesterday, but please don't reverse order and use "Lark" instead. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br><span>Happy Birthday Nettie!</span><br><br>
We had two nice turkey dinners, one at a friend's house on Thursday and another one here yesterday. Too much good food to list!<br><br>
Today we're going to watch our game vs. UCLA (at UCLA) on TV up in a room in the stadium. My friend bought a fundraising package from a booster club for a catered party for 100. They'll put the game up on the big scoreboard as well. Should be fun. Later on tonight we've got a home basketball game, so today will be busy.<br><br>
Oh, and my car was stolen yesterday. I posted a thread in the PRT about it yesterday. No word yet from the police. It's having the positive effect of making us think about whether we want to be a 2-car family or not.

Heyl.....why would you leave off your foot?? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Good morning, friends! I slept hard last night and I actually woke up before my alarm this morning. How often does that happen? Almost nevah!! No running this morning, maybe I can get a run in later today. I have the funeral and a luncheon to go to, not sure what the plans will be like after that. I hope everyone is having a much better day than we are.<br><br>
Happy Birthday <b>Nettie!!</b> There is some birthday beer for you in the PRT. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br><b>LL</b> Nice tat. I want one on my inner wrist. I'm just to dang picky. And I think I should get the one on my foot touched up. It is really faded.<br><br>
All right, I'm out. I have to shower and get ready. Yuck. I'd like to stay in my pajamas all day and just read. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> Speaking of reading, has anyone else read <b>Twilight?</b> Holycarp! It is awesome! And it is about some teenagers. I started it on my drive yesterday and I'm halfway through the book. I was mad when the sun went down.
