Good morning all. I was going to post before heading out to run but saw no thread yet. So here I go.<br><br>
Well so much for my problems finding a good lady. I finally found one:<br><br><img alt="" src="http://216.77.188.54/coDataImages/p/Groups/21/21449/folders/222749/22460519666629645030BG.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
This is Ms. Olsen. Her mom and dad were good friends of mine who came down to visit at dinner a few weeks ago. The proud mom passed her around the table and took nice pictures of all of us holding her. I just received them this morning. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Seeing as I am single let this picture be my <i>baby</i> picture post as I won't have any of my own for a good while! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Have a great day all. Oh an yes she was perfect the entire dinner in a big noisy restaurant- smiling, laughing, etc.

What a most excellent way to start the day - that's a GREAT picture Chris! Adorable little girl and quite the handsome fella!<br><br>
OK I'm grabbing a cuppa joe and getting ready for work. I got to bed very late (1 a.m.)cuz I was STILL PACKING. Cripes. So even though I had that 4 hour nap yesterday, I'm <span style="text-decoration:underline;">very</span> tired. I may be investigating the Relaxation Suite at the Healthy Living Center over the noon hour. Maybe squeeze in a nap. I'm trying very hard to remain as healthy as I can for race day.<br><br>
DS is sick and will be staying home today. If I had enough PTO built up I might do the same. arg.<br><br>
I'm gonna be swamped at work so likely no posting from me today.<br><br>
I start my journey to Philly tonight! woo hoo!

Hello all. I am tired and cranky. My trip home last night took 2:20. Because some asshat decided that paving during rush hour was a good idea. WTF?!?!?

The weather ain't been all that great these last few days. Forecast is still looking good for Sunday though. Still, I wish that it could have been for the most part bright and dry while I've been taking the week off. It's always a bit of miserable effect when you get a day like yesterday, starts out locked in fog and by about 4:30 with very little daylight left, the fog has only retreated into a low dull overcast. Owch!

Good morning Maples and all who follow.<br><br>
Been awake since about 2:30am last night stressing about work issues, so at 5:00am decided to get ready and head into the office to tackle some tasks. Now I'm at the office and on this forum instead of doing the work which was keeping me up last night. Heh.<br><br>
The last couple of nights the movie Heartbreak Ridge with Clint Eastwood has been on TV. Toward the end of the movie, he has a classic line that I'm going to drop on the marketing director the next time we end up on opposite sides of an argument:<br><br>
"Frankly sir, you're beginning to bore the sh!t out of me."<br><br><b>Maples:</b> Ms. Olsen is one cute baby. If I were you, I'd carry that picture around with you in your wallet and let it "accidentally" fall-out around the right woman. You'll be in <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>

heh.<br><b>Semi.</b> I do wish you could be around more. And not just for the cute puppy pics.<br>
How is your little one doing?<br>
I just found out that you can indeed do most pilates moves with a 70# dog standing over top of you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

AH! Forgot it's mom's bday today <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> We had a family gathering the other day but gonna run some flowers by after work. Glad she's still around <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
I am tempted to crop that picture and use it as a new avatar......<br><br>
Thank you <b>Big G</b> for making me blush at 7 am <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

<b>Maples</b>, that's a great photo of you! I'm glad you did put it up as your avatar. That is one seriously cute baby.<br><br>
However, I do have a photo of my nephew that my mom sent out that trumps that one. Then again, I am biased. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> He wore a dragon costume at Halloween and it is absolutely adorable. His birthday is Halloween, so he is going to have extra fun on that day for years to come. The photo is too big to post but here is the link: <a href="http://i6.tinypic.com/8a2i8tw.jpg" target="_blank">http://i6.tinypic.com/8a2i8tw.jpg</a>

Ugh - I hate it when they do sh!t like that... or they close down 3 lanes of a 4 lane highway to do bridge work... right at a bottleneck... right before/during rush hour... seems just as dangerous for the workers as well as the drivers... I guess the DOT doesn't like paying time and a half to get the work done at 2AM.

Good Morning<br><b>Chris</b> great picture. She is a cutie<br><br>
It is snowing, raining, and sleeting here this morning. Yuck. Hubby went deer hunting this morning. I haven't gotten a phone call yet so I am guessing the hunt went as usual.

morning! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><br><br>
I don't get to check in here much during the day, but I posted something last night that I would like to post again for those who may not have seen it. It is something I've been thinking a lot about the last couple days:<br><br>
So I was thinking today about this <b>upcoming Philly weekend</b>... It occurred to me today that I've been so preoccupied with getting ready to run the marathon that I forgot to think about what else this weekend is about. I live here, but for many of you this is a vacation of sorts... So, <b>for those of you travelling to Philly</b> -- safe trips to you. I hope you all really have a great (mini though it may be) little vacation. I'm super excited to meet you all. <b>For those of you we won't get to meet this weekend</b>, I'm looking forward to future gatherings where we will get a chance to meet. I'm sure I'm not alone in wishing you all could be here...<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
I'll be back later to read what's up with everyone!
