<p>Just kidding.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>

<p>I may take the day off today.  If I do anything, it'll be an easy workout tonight. We'll see.  Yesterday was a tempo run, but it was hot and I went out too fast, so I ran out of gas too soon.  Oops.</p>

<p>Today is a scheduled rest day so I ate like crap and stayed up too late last night.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif" title=""></p>

<p>Today might be a rest day.  Depends how sore I am later after last night's boot camp extravaganza: 3 miles running plus 50 squats, 50 one-legged squats, 100 lunges, 50 pushups, and 50 dips.  Plus I lifted before class (didn't have time to swim), so my arms are really tight.  LOVE that feeling. </p>

<p>Woo hoo - double digits for me this morning (I too am channelling RFTL).  It was a beautiful morning (60s).  I was slow and it was harder than it should have been, but I got 11 and change in.  Unfortunately I forgot the Body Glide and suffered serious shower shock post-run.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/shock.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a great day!</p>

<p>Swim for me this morning and I'll do a short run this afternoon sometime.  I'm dehydrated quite badly after travel and a sweat-fest trainer/bike workout yesterday afternoon.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Swim felt OK, but I got kicked outta my lane by water aerobics.  Meh.</p>

<p>At first I thought, "What.... did I spell tie-ing wrong?" <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/lol.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>They're both wrong. I need spelling lessons and a fresh pair of contacts.</p>

<p>eta: butt tape! butt tape! butt tape! and walked Gus a couple miles. Wanted to do a lap around the park (another mile) but his tongue was hanging waaaay out (it's pretty humid this morning) so maybe we'll try again later.</p>

<p>Tris/back/abs with little miss evil this morning.   Abs were still sore from Tuesday, so I can only imagine what I'm going to feel like in the morning.  My own fault for not keeping up while she was on vacation:)</p>

<p>OUCH!  We had one of our reps in the store yesterday and he also handles our Body Glide supply.  We started talking about all the pink stuff out these days -- the Breast Cancer 3-Day is HUGE now, and lots of women are buying anything that has a pink theme or ribbon, etc. on it.  He then pulls a small travel-size Body Glide out of his bag and gives it to me.  It's PINK.  Pink cap, pink on the logo, even the glide stuff is slightly tinted pink.  There was a whole reference sheet about selling this "women specific" Body Glide.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/huh.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title=""></p>
<p>Seriously?  I love that the pink ribbon, etc, stuff is drawing attention to the fight against cancer and, in a way, empowering women.  But do you need to add a pink cap to Body Glide and sell it as a woman's only product? </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Went out for drinks right after work with some of the store/group run people, so my 8 miles this morning were fine until about mile 6.  Then the dehydration, humidity, and lack of sleep set in and I dragged my soaking wet self home the last 2 miles. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>ETA: oh, and I did more core stuff this morning.  I don't need to report my running to keep me accountable -- I'm good with that -- but I'm going to make an effort to report my core stuff so I have something keeping me accountable to working on that middle area!   </p>

<p>5.25 miles this morning...forgot how hard it is to travel from west-to-east, plus our flight was delayed Monday so didn't go to bed until "normal" time on the west coast so yesterday was a wash.  Slept horrible last night.  Hoping today things will normalize back to east coast time.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>nice run <strong>RIL</strong>.  11 before work!</p>

<p><strong>Crane</strong> - I forget if it was in this thread or the fun one -- I saw your note about my visit.  Yes, I'll be there next weekend!  No worries about the race -- I'm just running it, not racing it, and I'm just psyched you guys will be there after!  Woot!  I've never been to Minnesota and I'm super excited to be there! </p>

<p>4.5 sweaty miles this morning.  I was saturated a mile in.  As nice as Tuesday's weather was, today was ick - 91% humidity, so a dew point of 71*. Rained the last 1.5 miles or so, which was a welcome relief.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Definitely NOT racing Saturday, but will try and get in 8, which will be my longest in a year. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>And the 15 day forecast on accuweather.com does not have one day in the 90+ temp range.  Maybe the worst of the summer is over (crossing fingers).  Now, if we can get some steady rain.</p>

<p>Morning all!  I met up with some of my regular a.m. crew and ran another bridges run, Manhattan Bridge into Brooklyn and Brooklyn Bridge back into Manhattan.   Finished up along the Hudson on the west side to get 11.45 miles done and done.   The air was supah thick with humidity but we got a bit of relief when it started rainy around the 7-8 mile mark.</p>

<p><strong>Maria</strong> - how are you posting those pic4ever smilies?  Every time I try on this new KR site, it just shows the link, not the smiley... </p>

I saw the pink stuff a couple months ago at my running store. Ridiculous what companies will do to sell something.  </p>

Are they donating some of the proceeds to cancer research?  That may make it make sense, if it is not a marketing ploy disguised as charity.  MLB does something like this a few times a year, but they are really ways to sell more merchandise.  For example, on Memorial Day weekend, the 4th of July, and Labor Day weekend, all MLB teams wear hats that are red, white, and blue, with a stylized logo.  The Mets one looks like this:</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/50705/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="pMLB2-7426256dt.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="12820" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/12820/width/500/height/500" style="; width: 500px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>MLB states that a portion of the proceeds will go to the Welcome Back Veterans fund, which is a VERY worthy charity.  But when you look into the details, the hat costs $37 and they donate $1.  I am sorry, but that is not charity.  Not even close.</p>

<p>G'morning all.  Yesterday's run sucked, but I got it done - 9 miles thru the typical TOG-style winds here. Hopefully today's run will be a little more uptempo'ish and definitely a lot shorter.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Happy birthday <strong>Mindi</strong>!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Like <strong>2oh</strong> said yesterday, it's been great to see you renewbies coming back, especially those who hadn't stopped by in ages (<strong>Tex</strong> a month or so ago, and <strong>Cherl</strong> yesterday)</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>((((Duck's ankle, Jen's hammy, Theia's body</strong> (that sounds remotely dirty heh) <strong>and other 30s achy parts))))</strong></p>
