<p>I'm not training for anything at the moment. There's a HM on Memorial Day weekend I would like to register for, not sure I can get up to speed by then. I'm hoping that the VRAA will motivate and inspire me to get my running mojo going. I've been working out, just not running.  Something about the Minnesota winter months that just deplete me.  Today I have big plans: I park and walk to and from work a mile each way, I'm hitting the gym after work for some treadmill and stairstepper time and then some relaxing Lunar Yoga before bed. I figure if I put it out here then I'm committed to doing it.  Rawr!  icandoit icandoit icandoit icandoit icandoit</p>

<p id="user_yui_3_3_0_7_1301678920372129">1) What does your user name on kickrunners represent? How did you choose it?</p>
<p id="user_yui_3_3_0_7_1301745759766247"><span style="color:#800080;"><span id="user_yui_3_3_0_7_1301745759766246">My sister and I started calling each other Goon when we were in about 8th grade.  It didn't start off nice.  It was more like omiGOD</span> you are such a GOON!  No YOU are.  NO YOU ARE!!  Screeeeech! Somehow it evolved into a pet name and we call each other Goon all the time now, my Mom refers to us as Goon, our kids call us Auntie Goon.  Anyway, I'm 5 minutes older than she is so I am The Big Gahoona. </span></p>

<p>5) What color is your yoga mat?</p>
<p id="user_yui_3_3_0_7_1301745759766240"><span style="color:#800080;">I have a green yoga sticky mat and a blue thicker mat that I got because the green sticky mat was so thin, but the blue one wasn't sticky enough and I was sliding on it so I combine the two on my hardwood floors, the green sticky on top of the blue cushy.</span></p>

<p>I've done a Ragnar Relay before - sooper fun!</p>

<p>I didn't get my Yoga on last night - C came over and took us out for ice cream.  Did an hour Pilates class and a 45 minute Cable Strength training class this morning.  LOVE the cable class.  I usually feel pukey and require an assist in getting my sports bra off afterward - sure signs of a gooooood workout!</p>
<p>I ended up with one measly mile yesterday. pfft.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Today 1 miles walk in to work, 3 miles over lunch, one hour of pilates after work, and the mile walk home. 32 points for de day. :)</p>
<p>Should we come up with a Team name?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I see that Team 3 is now Team Five Guys. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am totally lacking any creativity at the moment. </p>
