Hey, I'm a b-teamer! (Always have been! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> )<br><br>
I finally got some mileage last night - the weekend was a bit full, and I felt lucky to have been able to sneak in that 6 miles. I'm back on track now!<br><br>
Yay, I'm on Coachie's team!!! <img alt="icon_cheers.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_cheers.gif"><br><br>
Go Team Bad Asses!!!
In addition to my running miles I walk 1-2 miles a day when I walk Pico the Puppy. But it's more like walkstopsniffwalkstopsniff. Should I or should I not count that mileage? <img alt="confused.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/confused.gif">
Sorry, I was out running. And I know, I know, if I were truely dedicated to my internet habit (addiction), I'd get an internet capable phone so I could post while I was running. But, I'm not that dedicated. Or that coordinated.
Since I don't know a lot of you...<br><br>
I'm Jennifer (username is Jennifer spelled backwards).<br>
I live in the sticks outside of Columbus, Ohio.<br>
In a former life, I was a gymnast. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br>
I've been running for about 3 years - I ran some before that but not with any regularity.<br>
I'm a mechanical engineer<br>
I'm 31.5 years old, married, and have a 3 year-old DS.<br>
I don't have any particular goals or races coming up. I'm thinking about running the Columbus Half Marathon in Oct, but we'll see what the summer brings. There's also a 15k in a couple of weeks that I'll probably run.
Good idea Jennifer.<br><br>
I'm Jennifer too.<br>
I live in Central Wisconsin but am looking to move back to my hometown of Rochester MN.<br>
I was NEVER athletic, with the exception of required PE classes. I started running about 3-4 years ago when I got a treadmill with some preset programs. Monkeying around with them one day I found a program that had me run a little in the middle of the walking and I kept with that and liked it and wanted to run more each time. And here I am today, training for my first marathon! <img alt="headbang.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/headbang.gif"><br>
I'm an Associate Financial Rep/Client Manager in a small financial advisory firm.<br>
I'm 39, divorced and I have two kids - DS age 10 and DD age 13.<br><br>
I have a few races this summer. Chileda Classic 5k this weekend. Rochester Half Marathon end of August, there's the Ready to Rock 20 miler in September and I hope to be in the Twin Cities 10 miler in October, then the November Philly Full Marathon. woo hoo!<br><br>
Looking forward to hearing more about the rest of Team BadAss!
Hi BigGahoona, nice to meet you!<br><br>
I'm Chris, from Southeast Kansas. I'm married to Bugdude, who's on Team D, so he's the enemy. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I'm 40, with three kids, aged 17, 13, and 9. I was a so-so miler in high school, then didn't run again until 2003, when I got this hair-brained idea that I should train for a marathon. I survived the Wichita Marathon, barely, but the bug had bitten! Since then, I've done another marathon, some half's, various 10K's and 5K's, and coolest of all, I've roped my DH into running!! I'm a slow, middle- to back- of the packer.<br><br>
I'm an IS Manager for a medium-sized group of community banks (20) in Kansas. And, I'm a goddess. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I'm a ridiculously loyal KC Royals fan.<br><br>
Team BadAss Rocks!!!
<span style="font-family:Arial;"><span style="font-size:medium;">Ah, yes – who the hell am I?</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;"><span style="font-size:medium;">I’m Trevor and I usually hang out with BigG/Jenn in the 30s thread.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="font-family:Arial;">I live in central Connecticut now, but grew up in central New York and attended college in Rochester, NY and Washington, DC. Married with two girls 6 and 4. I’m an attorney for the finance division of The Hartford – you know, the insurance company with stag logo?</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;"><span style="font-size:medium;">Started running in Jr. High and all the way through HS. Had some track scholarship offers, but turned them all down to focus on academics – I ended up majoring in beer instead.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;"><span style="font-size:medium;">Picked up running again after many failed attempts in April 2005. Ran a half later that year, then moved up to the marathon distance in 2006. BQed in 2007 and now I’m training for the Philly Marathon in November, but will race a few halfs (Adirondack and Hartford) along the way. I’m currently ramping up my mileage for the fall racing season.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;"><span style="font-size:medium;">Looking forward to running with all of you.</span></span>
Wow, I'm slow. I just noticed that you were <i>CoachT</i>, not <i>Coachie</i>!<br><br>
Hi CoachT, nice to meet you!! I also majored in beer in college. No, that's not true. I majored in rum. Beer would have been smarter. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">
Actually, I think the 2-n's is to differentiate me from JustJen in the 30's thread.<br><br>
I majored in Vodka. <img alt="surprised.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/surprised.gif">ccasion5: I'm still taking continuing education courses. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">
I am Eric, a Purdue alum living in St. Johns (the suburbs of Jacksonville) Florida hence my name. I ran in HS for the cross-country and track team. I wasnt fast enough to get a scholarship anywhere. I was, and still am, to be a fast distance runner. I played Rugby in school, drank a lot of beer in my fraternity and I was able to graduate in 4 years plus 1 summer school. Currently I am learning to be a DBA at a major Health Insurance company here in Florida. I am married with 2 kids. I have also started making home brews. I get to try my 3rd batch tomorrow.
Hey Badass teammates, nice to meet you all. I've been away for a couple of days but will get my reporting back on track later today. Not that there's much for me to report, but I'm hoping to get that back on track too.<br><br>
About me: I'm a grants manager by day and web analyst by night, and I work out of my home office in the western Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I'm 41, married with two cats.<br><br>
Seems like I've always been active one way or another, but didn't start running till about 4 years ago. Back then I was a walker, and during a visit to the Sierra foothills of Grass Valley, CA, I added a little jog during a downhill portion of a walk. That didn't seem to be too bad, so I did it again the next day and the next, then when I came home, I started adding more and more until I was running the entire way. I had a bit of a layoff this past winter when I had abdominal surgery for suspected cancer, but all of that is a distant memory now and I'm pretty much back to my old self.<br><br>
Looking forward to the Whistle Stop Half Marathon in October 2007 - my first race ever back in 2003 and now my perennial favorite. Not shooting for a PR this year - just glad to be running again.<br><br>
Finally, anyone who knows anything about me knows that I'm a crazy Rush fan. I will gladly provide band trivia to anyone that asks. Most people don't ask. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
My name is RP. I don't have much to say. I run a bit, bike a bit, swim a bit. I live in the state capitol of CA. It's hot today.<br><br>
Vote for me and all your wildest dreams will come true.
