              jblack - My dog is like that when we first get home, but then he sleeps the rest of the night.  It's like a delayed fatigue.

               

              Phillie - The other couple put together a HUGE push at the end, and got us.  We have almost 250 likes though, and I'm proud of that.  I appreciate everyone that voted.  You're all awesome.  I haven't told P3, but I'm going to book the couple's massage anyway.  She obviously wanted it, and I can afford it right now.  Now, get your work done, and get out of here ;-)

               

              Kristin - Enjoy your weekend.  Its good to see that you've figured out a way to make a long distance relationship work.  I had to move P3 here to Indiana from Washington.  Weekend visits didn't work.

               

              Bin - We're supposed to lake effect snow this weekend.  I have an 8 and a 15 mile run planned.  This should be interesting, but I won't do 15 on a treadmill again.  I did 16 on a treadmill once, and hated life.

               

              T-rod - That sucks about the sore throat, but running MCM with your wife rocks.  Keep us posted.

               

              Docket - Enjoy the marathon.  I'd wish you good luck, but you don't need it.

               

              Mitch - Sounds like we're currently targeting close to the same pace for our HM's.  Kick ass this weekend!

               

              Scotty - You've officially redefined quick hello.  Tell Gail that I said, "Happy Birthday".

               

              Zel - Nobody does long runs on Friday!?  What are you doing?  I know that's a lot of chocolates, but their full of antioxidants.  Very good for you.  It's like you just at a bunch of vitamins.  No biggie.  At least that's what I'd be telling myself right now.

               

              HopesMom - I'd need a beer.  Analyzing data, generating data, waiting for parts...I'd have to generate a good buzz.  Anyway, we didn't win, but we did really really well.  Thanks for liking our photo.  I'll get P3 that massage.

               

              She Can - NO COFFEE...NUFF SAID!!!

               

              I'll have to pick up where I left off later.  If I don't get back here, have a great day!!!

                SheCan - That's the only running movie I've ever watched.  I'm still pretty new to this thing :-)  I've had a few recommended, but haven't checked them out yet.

                 

                Tracilynn - We fell victim to a huge last minute surge by another couple.  We were right at about 250 likes though, and I'm pretty proud of my friends for really showing up for us.  Thank you!  P3 will get that massage though.  I'm going to make sure of it.

                 

                Mitch - You're going to be stalked so bad now...lol  Don't you dare stop to use the Port-A-John, or we'll all know.

                  With work, two little kids, and a limited budget, I won't press my luck with my boss,  wife.

                  You can do better.  I did 4 in my first year!

                   

                  I may shoot for longer races and just a do a few of those. My sister is trying to convince me to do a 100 miler in a few years. Crazy thing is, I am thinking about it. Wife has no idea about that one or that if she does become a runner she can help be a pacer Smile

                          Hopefully I get approved for my new job and I will have less extra stuff to do and more pay. So more races could work out.

                            Hope everyone had a great Valentines Day, yesterday.  We had an excellent (but expensive) dinner at Ruth Chris.  Got home early and fell asleep through most of "idol".  4 miles this morning indoors with the $&@ing walkers.

                             

                            Then saw "Amour" (Oscar nominee),  very depressing.  Better keep running to stay young.  We now have 1 week to see Life of Pi and django Unchained.

                             

                            Finally registered for our HM in Knoxville in April to avoid the price increase. One hour after registering, DW gets first back spasms of her life whilw we ran.  Hope its just temporary.

                             

                            Have a great weekend late V Day.
