Beginners and Beyond

Penguin Independence Weekend Daily (Read 22 times)

Jerryb49


    The "Penguin" daily threads were originally conceived to emphasize that all members of the community have a place on the boards. Encouragement, motivation, a little love nip (you will love one, give it a try!) or even a little kick in the pants when needed -- it can happen here. Basically, we celebrate just getting out there and moving our tails! What is "slow"? "Slow" is a perception but one of the common benchmarks is the 10:00/mi pace; but there's no firm line. In fact, there are many of us that have slipped past this, and just hope that no one notices and revokes their "igloo privileges." It can be confusing for the forum newbies, but we're not one of the teams in any of the fine games. It's a totally open group, so stop lurking, post an introduction of yourself dive in and join the fun! No application necessary! There might even be a lovely picture for Scotty (we love pics!)

            Hi Pens.

             

            It is flippin' hot and I don't like it one bit. 5.5 hot miles are done. 10-12 are on tap for tomorrow so I think I need to get out of the house by 6:00. I really can't stand the heat. Did I mention it was hot? Gosh.

             

            Jerry: I got a variety case of Longboards from Costco and I think I like the IPA the best.

            Docket: When is Mr. Docket's next HM? That's nice that you two can get some miles together. I also like running with DW.

            PAD: Way to beat the heat.

             

            See ya.

                Morning pens! Ran 10.09 miles with my club this morning, putting me over 26 again for the week Big grin

                 

                I mentioned that we put in an offer on a house on Thursday - it was accepted! Inspection sometime this week, then just signing a bunch of stuff (well, DH will do the signing) and waiting on the bank to get the loan in order, and hopefully we will close in a month or so, maybe sooner Smile Very excited!

                I like to run, and when I don't have a hernia I pick things up and put them down.

                          Jack, Belgium and Costa Rica are real underdogs.

                           

                          Damaris, does Miami has a big group of Argentinian?

                            Yes.  Anything from Latin America, we have in the thousands, if not more.

                              Got our 11 done on a very busy bike path.   Knees kind of achy last couple.  I think it is PFS.  Took it slow the whole way.

                               

                              Obie, how are you after first HM?

                               

                              Go Costa Rica !!!  Have fun Zel.
