<i>They paved paradise and put up a parking lot,<br>
With a pink hotel, a boutique,<br>
And a swinging hot spot.<br>
Don't it always seem to go<br>
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone?<br>

Just signed up at Kicks after several years of happy posting at CR :banana<img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">as spankee). Happy to find a new home, but a little wierded out with how the Active capture destroyed a very vibrant, supportive and funny Boomer posting community. Hope Active got what they paid for.<br><br>
I know a fair number have migrated here while others have gone elsewhere, but will it ever be the same? Throw in a bowling induced injury which has put me on the running shelf for 4 weeks and I enter 2008 a little bit morose.

You're taxing my fragile memory, canalspankee, but here goes ...<br><br>
There's a comfy chair in the corner for two. Look up, and I'll call Rusty. (doodle doo doo doo doo ...)<br><br>
I'm really happy you found your way here. I think in time you'll laugh at the bowling injury. Meanwhile, hang out and share your injury morosis. (It'll be a welcome change after I've blathered on about mine for the last month and a half or so.)

San Souci. One of my fav. Boomers. Nice to hear a familiar if not somewhat twisted voice. I didn't even know you were injuried. Not a bad time for an injury as there is still plenty of time to recover and prepare for spring marathons.<br><br>
Not bad on the memory. The line is: One little chair for one of you, and a bigger chair for two to curl up in, and for someone who likes to rock, a rocking chair in the middle. Look up. Wayyy up...and I'll call Rusty. (thanks Mr. Google--from <i>Friendly Giant, CBC TV program, forever</i>)

The Boston Gatorade 06 with 2 E-load caps is going to have to keep another year as I don't think I am running Boston this year.<br>
I am just glad I didn't ask for a banana to go with it. <img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif">

Canal - Funny as I was blasting Joni in my office yesterday. If you aren't running Boston are you on the crew team?<br><br>
They took all the trees<br>
Put em in a tree museum<br>
And they charged the people<br>
A dollar and a half just to see em

Spankee/CanalRunner!!!!!!!<br><br>
Yeah! So nice to see you, I was wondering about you the other day.<br><br>
I hope your bowling injury didn't involve pins. . . .<br><br>
Mr. Dressup and Casey and Finnegan are busy over there at the Tickle Trunk. But they say Welcome Back too.<br><br>
Another fellow Canook tosser from CR.<br><br>

The Crew Team looked like fun but the 9 hour drive to Boston does not so likely not.<br><br>
Alija-- I seem to have people wonder about me a lot. Not sure why.<img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><br><br>
And that would be Mr. Canuck tosser. Think we need a glossary for Boomer names now on Kickrunner

Hi Canal, it couldn't have been said better. I have gone back into a CR a couple of times to look at the damage. I am actually in aw about the profound stupidity or greed amoung the folks in Active. I think I am in stage 2 of grief. 1. denial, 2. Anger, 3. Acceptance.<br><br>
Thanks for the humor! Larry

Yay canalrunner/spankee is here! If I knew you were coming I'd have had you put me down as your referral. I am going for points now. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

that pink hotel has awesome mai tais. and cool running still has a great "news" section, with ryan lampa writing nice reports.<br><br>
but active.com is evil. he was cut down by the sword that was broken, and now wanders the land as an eye... he will only be able to take solid form if he captures the one ring... we must destroy it.

Good to see you Canal/spankee! I know what you're talking about...<br>
I took one look at the Active/CR site and it was Adios! for me. I was shellshocked... and would still be holed up if our one and only SS wouldn't have called me out of it via e-mail. I am so glad she did. I found many of my favourite people on this site.<br>
You'll like it, too. CR was a gathering place, and we found another one. What matters is the people. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br>
Welcome!<br>
