<p>Had the most enjoyable dinner with David Boyer last evening.  He is exactly as he is here--a true gentleman.  Kinda funny once I got thinking about it.  David got to the restaurant before I did and got a table.  When I got there I told the host I was meeting someone but we hadn't met before.  The host gave me that knowing look of "ah--a blind date".  I'm sure it gave the host and server something to talk about since we were both obviously wearing wedding rings!</p>

<p><strong>BBS</strong> - 50miler, 25k, marathon, half marathon.  What's with you lately?  Enjoy the rest.</p>
<p><strong>4boysmom</strong> - cool that you and Dave could finally hook up, or so the staff thought. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, I made it to the indoor track last night for 5*1k.  Splits were: 3:43, 3:42, 3:40, 3:42, 3:38.  Just over 10k in total.  Right side abductor/groin not very happy about running in circles.   Planning on getting out for a lunch time 5'er if my body lets me.</p>

<p>4BM that's kind of funny about the "blind date".  My wife used to travel a lot for work, so I was going to meet with a friend from work for dinner.  She told me she was talking to a coworker and said something like "well, his wife's out of town so we're going to go out" and probably got the same looks you and Dave got.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BBS- once that distance bug bites you it's all over.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nice workout last night Asics, but please, lets keep it in miles here.  None of the metric system crap.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Another uneventful run this morning.  8 moderately paced miles.</p>

<p>4boys -  Great pic of two of our Trimeisters</p>

<p>RA - HOpe the body says yes to your mid day</p>
<p>MBH - I want some of that kind of boring 8 mile run</p>
<p> </p>

<p>Good morning as it still is here.  No running for me today.  Letting my sore foot heal up.  I may just take the rest of the week off and see where that gets me.  30 minutes of stretching this morning. </p>

<p>Howdy campers. Busy AM for me...I've barely been unemployed for a week and already had my first interview for a new job this morning. I'd say it went well given they plan to bring me back for a second next week. And I have an interview with another company on Monday. Nothing like some positive mo' to carry into the weekend.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Back at the house now and it's a nice day out, clear and mid 40s.  Time to change out of the monkey suit and into some running gear. 7 miles on tap.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>4bm - not surprised you had a great meetup with IM Dave. I met up with him at Army Ten Miler years ago and I agree he's quality through & through.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BBS - that ultra beast will consume you</p>
<p> </p>
<p>RA - hope the fiver helps</p>
<p> </p>
<p>MB - nice job on the 8</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dan - slow & easy works just fine</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Kevin - one more rest day and you should be food to go tomorrow.</p>

<p>Greetings, Kicksters.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>A day off and a half-day of free house allowed me to stretch my legs a little. The result: My first 8-mile run since Feb. 18, 2009. I didn't even bother checking when the last time I hit double figures, but I imagine it was sometime the previous fall.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>4BM, great to see Kickrunners Fraternization hit full stride.... </p>
<p>Hawk, don't want to jinx you but it's been said the holidays are an excellent time to look for a job. Some of your competitors are sitting it out and potential employers are feeling jolly -- and know what their budgets are for 2012. Or something like that...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good runs, all</p>
<p> </p>

<p>5.3 non-metric miles over lunch. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>M</strong><strong>ailbox</strong> - Oddly, growing up in England in the 70s and 80s I was taught metric but the country used Imperial.   Weights and measures started to show metric and imperial in the 90s and many (if not all) are now totally metric, e.g. gasoline (petrol) has been sold by the liter since the late 90s.  My thought is they did that to make it seem cheaper...  Anyway, what's also odd is that some English measures are different to US... e.g. UK pint = 16oz vs US pint = 12 oz.  <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pint" target="_blank">CLICK</a>.   All road signs are still in miles and mile per hour, despite what some people think</p>
<p><strong>Dan</strong> - Nice job on the 3'er.  I have an old t-shirt that says "Slow and easy wins the race, except in a real race".  Cracks me up.</p>
<p><strong>Hawk</strong> - good luck with the job hunting.  Always jobs for guys in monkey suits. </p>
<p><strong>Baba</strong> - Nice job on the 8.  Double digits are just around the corner.</p>
<p><strong>kfuller</strong> - smart to play it safe, unlike some (finger points at self)</p>

<p>7.08 wet muddy trail miles done earlier this afternoon. Two days of heavy rain left their mark even though today is clear, cold and dry. Ran 3.5 miles out and then turned right back around, not sure where that extra .08 came from. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>22 minutes of core afterwards.</p>
