Weather dude says the cooler weather won't last, but it sure is a nice change.

Ran 2.53 miles on the TM last night. Was encouraged to see I was back to where I was last week, before I ran out of juice in the inhaler & had a little setback. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

JJJ, that looks like a blast. I like the first photo of the 2nd 2006 slide show. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Morning to all,<br><br>
Hey good run there Rinda, nice to see you're getting it back with the new inhaler and all<br><br>
Three jay- that run looks like a real blast, I see from the slideshow you guys have a Pre lookalike back there. I guy I know from here in Oregon (non runner) is from that area of NC and is back there right now to visit family.<br><br>
I'll go out a little later this morning and do an easy 4 or 5 miles which will be the last run before my leg at H2C sometime around 5 to 7 PM PDT Friday night. I hoping I can change my legs with one of the other runners, as they've assigned me the 3rd hardest legs (out of 12) and I'm the oldest and slowest. Half the team is way younger than my youngest kid. I don't mind running the hard legs, but one of 'em is steep downhill on pavement, and Johnny don't do downhill well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"><br><br>
Tamster - I'm leaving tomorrow afternoon, as I have to meet the van around noon somewhere near PDX, and I want to stop in a running store Friday AM. All my trail shoes died within a 2 week period and I'm down to only one pair

somewhere near PDX . . . . hmmmm, I hope they give you more specifics of the rendezvous point.<br><br>
well, good luck at the relay. I can't wait to hear about it and someone better switch that downhill leg with you. I can't have my running partner injured!<br><br>
no run for me today, but you all have had some nice ones! Very speedy Todd. Btw: where in MN are you? I'm from there originally and just went back there on vacation last month.

Ups bad enough, but down hurts.<br>
I ran just a few miles downhill last Sunday on the trail and I'm still aching.<br><br>
Good Luck on the relay. I'd like to do one someday.<br>

Did about 5 in 1:01:06 at lunch. I did a new route. I also used this thing called Map my Run. I liked it. I especially like the idea that you can get elevations from. So this run has what I call the "Hill of Despair" up 150 ft in like a 1/4 mile. I slowly slugged my way up it today. I expect as time goes on I will rename it the "Hill of Victory".<br><br>
I am posting the link to my run below. Best viewed with the satelite option.<br><br><a href="http://www.mapmyrun.com/run/united-states/ks/ft-leaven-worth/487573598" target="_blank">http://www.mapmyrun.com/run/united-s...orth/487573598</a><br><br>
JJJJJesse that trail run sounds like fun Good luck

4.25 miles in the woods at noon in, I'm guessing 80°-85° temps in 38:45 (9:07). I think I may have just <b>received total consciousness</b> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> I wore my hardrocks for the 1st time in 3 + weeks and they felt really good going over some rocks, really cushiony, way more comfortable than what I've been wearing the last couple of weeks. I'd been saving them for running only on more technical trails, and using Brooks ASR's for regular running on the trails behind my house which only have a few rocky sections, as they're mostly overgrown logging roads with few sections of single track. So I'm thinking now about getting another pair of hardrocks and forgetting about the ASR's.<br><br>
Time to go to lunch

Good afternoon.<br><br>
Joined the group for a track workout today on a brand, spankin' new track. The lines haven't even been painted yet. The workout was 20 x 200 with each 200 alternating between a steady fast pace or a shuffle jog recovery. Like Millbot's weather, we're also a little cooler at only 50 degrees at 6 a.m. this morning. At one point the billboard thermometer said 49! Definitely ideal running conditions.

Good afternoon/evening! Mind if I post some here?<br><br>
Nice races coming up. JJJ that is a beautiful part of NC, enjoy!<br>
Hood to coast sounds beautiful too.<br>
Choovie: That new track must have felt comfy on the feet (rubberized I assume).<br><br>
Being on vacation, I had a scenic run with my brother. The Falmouth Road Race route on Cape Cod. It was magical to run 7 miles with my brother (who I see only every couple years). Running along the coast and by a light house and ferry harbor. And it was in the 50's. Back home in Durham, NC it hit 105 today! Love this sneak preview of fall.<br><br>

Welcome, perch. Nice pic of Tory. I wish I could run with my brother or sister, but I'll have to be content in that I've run with my dad even though he's now packed in the running (NOT walking or chinups) at age 82. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
hally, from the intro thread, yes, I do remember you told me your brother is in The Hague. Let me know when you're going and I'll show you around (although Amsterdam is MUCH more fun).<br><br>
Mrs. Labduck, also from the intro thread, now you're being even sillier than I know you to be. Hope to see you this weekend. If not, October for sure!<br><br>
JJJ, congrats on reaching the milestone. That race looks like a beaut!!! I hope that ankle of yours is ready for it. If in doubt, try one of those AirCasts. Silly looking, I know, but it may save further injury. My PT advised you risk having a really "floppy" ankle if it doesn't heal properly.<br><br>
John, I'm glad to hear you're levitating. You'll free up more van space for those of us on the floor.<br><br>
I hadn't planned to run today, just a short one tomorrow, but I think I'll go out tonight for a jaunt with MustangSally's headlamp. I'm just a tad anxious about running in the dark and having to make a quick adjustment with my not-yet-fully-healed-but-just-fine-to-run-on-thank-you ankle.<br><br>
I am so excited I can barely stand myself. Back to packing ...

Souc,<br>
Good luck with that.<br><br>
I had a 8xhills workout today. My splits are still in my watch but I am happy I am hitting correct times at lower heart rates. 7M total.<br><br>
But, big BUT, my right instep is hurting and is my groin a bit. Clearly a wakeup call. It's just minor. But swimming tomorrow is all. Maybe a few easy on Friday. And Saturday too. Sunday will be a test day.<br><br>
