    N-Bug - Sounds like you're pretty excited about this interview.  Good luck with that.  I could tell you to relax, you got this, etc...but you've probably already told yourself that 100 times.  Hopefully, a run will help you clear your head and work out some nervous energy.

     

    Gustav - Maybe you can karaoke from a stool, and rest your scrambled legs :-)

     

    Bin - I feel much calmer when I have a clean house, and reduce my clutter through donation.  Sounds like a good idea.  Most of my clothes are too big now.  Maybe I should donate them, and buy some new ones.

     

    Kristin - Enjoy whichever workout takes place.  Sounds like you're pretty dedicated, and well prepared.

     

    Jerry - Be careful with that speed to and from the car.  It can get slippery out there.

     

    Docket - Can you run a few miles for me while you're at it.  This is my upper body and core day, but I'd rather be running.

     

    RickDecker - Welcome to the igloo!

     

    Scotty - I keep hearing people talk about "singlets", and I've never asked about it.  I wrestled from elementary school to college.  So, my idea of a singlet must be different.  What's a running singlet?

     

    Mitch - Yeah, your avi is gone.  Pictures are a little weird over here.  I'm not sure how to help with that.

     

    Lauren - The only advice I can give is to be patient.  I hope your return is a highly successful one.

     

    Zel - I'll try to set the bar high!

     

    Hopesmom - I wouldn't mind forgetting some things now and then, but only if I could choose what to forget.

     

    Jack - What if I told you that I had a 6 week program?  Just playin'!  It reminds me of the 8 minute abs, 6 minute abs, 5 minute abs battle.

     

    Ginny - I prefer outside, but I'm getting better at the treadmill.  There are days when it seems to be a necessity.

     

    Dave - LOL...windy run, or fresh baked cookies...hhhmmm.  The thought of the cookies waiting at home may have gotten you to run even faster.

     

    AFM, I have a 14 mile run with some tempo bouts in it tomorrow, and it's going to be snowing and about 20 degrees.  Yeah, I'll try to run that as fast as I can...lol

    I race in SparkleSkirts

      Made it to yoga! Yay for not having to work late on a Friday!

       

      I had found out a few weeks ago my yoga instructor is also a runner, but today when I was changing in the bathroom at the studio I noticed that he had a NYC Marathon finishing photo on the wall. I brought it up, and he told me the story of how he got into yoga....he injured his IT band 6 weeks before the 1998 NYCM and heard yoga could help so he started doing it.  15 years later he owns a yoga studio. Hearing his story was really cool, and I'm so glad my yoga instructor understands my injury and why running is important. Because god knows my doctor doesn't.
