<p>Good morning, gals. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Another easy run last night.  Tonight will be no run becuase I'm meeting some friends right after work.  I suppose I should've woken up early to run this morning, but I didn't.  It's gonna be hard enough for me to stay awake late enough as it is.  Oh well, a day off probably doesn't hurt...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>As you guys may recall, I bought some new shoes from Road Runner Sports this past weekend.  Usually I buy them online, but this time I did it over the phone becuase I wanted to talk to one of their "fit experts", and he's the one who recommended the Wave Enigmas.  Okay fine.  Well, they sent me a confirmation email after I officially placed the order, and all seemed good.  I figured the shoes would arrive yesterday, but they didn't.  Okay, a slight delay, no big deal.  So this morning I clicked the "track shipment" link in the confirmation email to see when they'd arrive.  According to that email, the package arrived at its desination yesterday.  At the address I moved away from three years ago!  After I gave my account number, the guy on the phone never confirmed my address.  Since I've ordered from them a zillion times since I moved three years ago, I assumed the address was a no-brainer.  I even checked online, and the only address I see linked with my account is my current one.  But somehow, the guy still managed to pull up my old address. </p>
<p><br>
I called their 800-number just now, and they basically gave me a "Whoops, our fault".  So they'll send me another package and that's it.  I just have to wait another 3 or 4 days.  I wonder what'll happen to the package that's now sitting over at my old apartment building... </p>

<p>Cold, windy and rainy here.  It's perfect stay-under-the-covers-and-read-all-day weather.  Unfortunately, I have a Skype meeting this morning, two classes this afternoon, a therapy session, a job info session with the National Clandestine Service (CIA) and then I get to train a high-schooler about reading at church.  The fact that I had two strawberry daquiris last night with a friend after Mass is not helping this morning.  Oof.  I think I may grab hang-over relief even though I'm not hung over because my tummy is not happy.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm trying to figure out what exercise to do tomorrow.  I think 4 miles is too far, but 40 minutes may be too short.  Or maybe I'll just do what I feel like and call it a day.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Love to you all.  I'm looking forward to a lot of good pictures.</p>

<p>RIL - what's with the banana?</p>
</div>
</div>
<br><br><p> We use the banana for the relays to teach them to keeep their upper bodies relaxed and not to clench their fists (don't bruise the banana) when running hard.  Plus they think it is funny.  <span><img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif" style="width:33px;height:35px;"></span></p>

<p>Is anyone else having trouble w/ kick?  Last week and this week it has been loading  v e r y   s l o w l y.   Like, 2-3 minutes per page slowly.  If this keeps up, I will not be visiting any more...  Way too frustrating, and it locks up my whole PC while it does its stuff.  This is the only website I'm having trouble with, so it's the site, not my PC.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyway.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sleazy 5 this morning.  Trying to decide what to do tonight.  Yoga?  Swim?  Weights?  Short run?  Spinning class?  I'm on a good roll this week and want to keep it up.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Bob</strong>, that's frustrating about your shoes!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Safe travels to <strong>TimR</strong> and <strong>Clare</strong> this weekend.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Who will be in town for Philly?</p>

<p>Greetings, all!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Bob</strong> - Hah.. that's kinda of funny that your shoes ended up at the old address.  :)  Glad to hear that RRS is just sending you a replacement without any hassle.  They're good peeps.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Theia - I haven't noticed any issues with the site.  Have you tried deleting your temp internet files and/or your kick cookie?  Or using another browser?  (if you use IE, try firefox, or vice versa)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm working at home today and stayed in bed until almost 7:30. I dislike cold nights, but I"ll admit, under an electric blanket, I sleep REALLY better than I ever did in the summertime.   </p>
<p> </p>
<p>At lunchtime, I'm thinking of either biking for an hour or trying to walk on the treadmill for however far I can get in the same time frame.  (not trying to speedwalk, but just get some walking action going). </p>

<p>It has seemed a little sluggish lately.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I ordered a chipper yesterday.  Any rental place around here does not have anything available for 2 months.  I went to HD last night to get more chain oil and a backup chain for my saw - got the last chain, and they are out of oil. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Tim</strong> and <strong>clare</strong> - the weather on Sunday looks spectacular!!!!  Safe travels.</p>

<p><strong>Ailaire</strong>, you seem to have forgotten that I am a total computer doofus.  Seriously, I know how to type on the thing and that's it.  LOL.  No worries, I'll figure it out!</p>

<p>Hey folks!  I have loads to catch up on it seems!!  Been kind of a rough few weeks in the Beaker household.   Hopefully we are all on the upswing though! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>No exercise to report because I am on the DL for about a month.  Was in the ER last weekend and apparently the taking of the medical history part was just a mental exercise cause and I ended up being given something I shouldn't have.  So no exercise for about a month, the possible risk is tendon rupture so yeah, I got that going for me!  More doc appts today to hopefully solve the mystery of my hives that apparently weren't hives so cross your fingers for me.  None of the possibilities seems too sinister so I am not too worried!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>KP LOVE the orange, good call!  Hope you are healing up well!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Bob someone was very happy with their new shoes I bet :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Theia I was supposed to be running the half but that is out so if anyone wants a bib for the Philly half (it is sold out) let me know!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ok, hoping to get caught up here folks.  Miss you all, hugs to all who need or want them :)</p>
