Wake up everyone!<br><br>
9.02 miles of hillis @ 9:14 pace (150AHR).<br>
I almost didn't run this morning because it started to shower pretty heavily just as I was going out but then it stopped....then started up again as I was running.<br>
I don't mind running in the rain as long as I don't <i>start out</i> running in the rain.... <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">.

I'm with you on the rain thing, Peter. It wasn't raining here this morning, but I just had an indoor workout at the rec center scheduled anyway. About 45 minutes of mostly upper-body strengthening work.

I attended a local running club meeting last night and it must have given me motivation, because I sailed through my run this morning feeling great. Actually it was quite warm at my gym and I expected it to be a difficult run, but it was really good and I could have kept going if I hadn't run out of time. It takes me a while to shower, get dressed, do my makeup, dry my hair, put back on my jewelry, and drive the mile to my office. I'm on a really tight schedule in the mornings, as you can tell.<br><br>
Anyway, 3 miles this morning, then 15 mins of good deep stretching. Now I'm heading out to Village Hall to pick up payroll, which will add a mile of walking.<br><br>
Tomorrow morning at 6am I leave to attend a conference in Philly so I may not be posting much for a few days. On the other hand, if it's terribly boring, I may post a lot! Luckily the hotel has a "fitness center" although you never know if it's a solitary treadmill and a couple of free weights in the corner of the lobby or whatever. I'll try to keep my momentum going while I'm away. If nothing else, I can do a lot of stretching and maybe outdoor running if the weather cooperates alhtough I hate to run in strange cities if I don't know where I'm going.<br><br>

Conventional wisdom told me not to get up early and run this morning since I have a ML run scheduled this afternoon, but my "<b><span style="color:#800080;">gut</span></b> feeling" <b><span style="color:#800080;">got</span></b> me out of bed for a quick, mind healing 2 miles on 4 inches of fresh snow. As my feet were gliding on the new snow...my mind was soaring like an eagle. <b><i><span style="color:#800080;">Oh the magic of running</span></i></b>.

I'll be running later today, but I just wanted to give a big shout out to all the running moms out there. You ladies amaze me with how you are able to balance home and work, and then <i>still</i> find the time and effort to run. <img alt="icon_salut.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_salut.gif"> I can't even <i>imagine</i> doing do all that, let alone actually doing it!<br><br>

Thaks for sharing the link with us Mc. So...was is going on Sun God?...you are a bit relaxed, almost tamed today? jijij.<br><br>
I like this statement from Hicham El Guerrouj that appears in the article.<br><br><i>“I am here to participate in this race to celebrate the pleasure of running. I am here to share the same passion that unites me with the 4500 runners who will take part.”</i>

Hey gang, just stopping by briefly to post something I think y'all will enjoy.<br><br>
There is a POTD (person of the day) thread in the PostRaceTent (PRT)<br>
and one of my VRAA teammates was featured the other day. This young lady WON OA first woman at Omaha last year.....in her....get this....<br>
FIRST EVER MARATHON!<br><a href="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=18791" target="_blank">http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=18791</a><br>
Anyway, I just thought y'all might enjoy it and if you want, could be featured yourselves. It's nice to venture out of your comfort zone once in a while.<br><br><br>
Good news on my sore foot, I now don't think it's PF at all but a strain further up near the big toe. Will continue to baby it till it gets better.<br>
Cardio of some sort and weights later.<br><br>

Nice runs this morning!<br>
Peter, I completely agree about the rain.<br>
Riley, have a nice trip!<br>
I see MS is taking tips from Dirt <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br>
TW, 'Hope your back is better soon!<br><br>
15 hilly miles this morning. My calf did fine after 2 days of no running. I'll probably pay for it tommorrow. I love long runs. I get to run in all different parts of town. I really enjoyed my run today.<br><br>
Great runs to all today!

Sorry about the underwear line. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> I'm a little stiff, so I don't know if I crossed the threshold in that run last night. I'm just glad I did it. I looked back at my log right before going to bed and figured out that my tempo pace is a minute faster than when I did this run right before Bellingham, so that was another boost to my confidence. This is the best taper I've ever had. I think we're going to the Y tonight, where I'll row for 30 minutes. Tamster, I hope you get over that cold. Mariposai, I think I know what you mean (though I don't get many chances to run in the snow).
