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!)

Non-running day for me. Planning on doing a weight training circuit after work. Hopefully I won't be too lazy to do it by the end of the work day.
Jerry, I thought in some parts of New York it's called 'cheeseboiger". No worries today, non-running day for me. Now watch me get knocked down by a texting walker today at the gym.
You'll get your wind back soon enough, Jimmy. Hey, run for Congress...if you get elected, you'll never run out of wind! What the heck is a "bojangles" for breakfast? You're gonna eat an old-time dancer? You keep that up, you'll soon be fed up with people!
Early bird runner, PAD. Have fun at the gym.
Why the doubles, Awood? You're making me look bad.
Hope your cough is feeling better, Bin!

Scotty - Do you not have a Bojangles in Texas? Its a fried chicken place, kinda like KFC but not quite so expensive.
KFC is expensive?
Will Run for Waffles
Morning! I have been just wiped out by the time I get home the past few days. I just want to inhale some food and then sleep. So that's what I've been doing. Today is open house at DD's school, which goes until 9, so it will be another RD. I haven't taken 3 days off in a row since May, I don't think, and I do think I need it. HM training is ramping up, and I want to be fresh if I can.
PRs: 5K: 26:03 / 10K: 53:03 / 10mi: 1:26:15 / HM: 1:55:02
Singer who doesn't run.
Morning, Penguins!! Kaycee seems to be doing a little better today -- we grabbed her up and shot the antibiotic down her throat last night, dose 1 of 14, woo-hoo!! She still hid downstairs instead of coming to sleep with us, but this morning she ate a bit of her old canned food and some of the nutritional supplement the vet gave us. She's not munching the special kidney diet food yet, but hopefully that will come, and she did purr a bit when I petted her good-bye this morning, so she was definitely perkier.No quartet tonight -- our lead is out of town! So I'm thinking it's a good time for a bubble bath ...Jerry -- Mmm, cheeseburgers!!jblack -- Yay for payday, boo for no groceries!!PAD -- woo-hoo for your 4 done!!Awood -- have fun with your double!!Docket -- business dinners can be fun ... Bin -- woo-hoo for your 6!!scotty -- do your weights, or Damaris will bring out the whip!!Jack -- good luck with your 4!!Zelanie -- have fun at Open House, and rest up!!
When it's all said and done, no one remembers how far we have run. The only thing that matters is how we have loved.
Jerry - enjoy your run. Is that run #43 for the year, month or what?
Jimmy - chicken for breakfast? yech. I hope you're doing most of your runs slowly. I do know about trying to get back to the level you were before. It's slow.
Pad - good job on the early run. Enjoy the gym tonight.
Awood - enjoy your double.
Damaris - do you want to do the dinner tonight or not? And yes, KFC is fairly expensive. Too much for me, anyway.
Scotty - any after effects from yesterday's car brush? Are you getting any of the TS rain where you live?
Bin - good job on the 6 this morning. How's the cough?
Jack - have fun with the recovery miles this evening.
Z - resting right now when everything is so crazy is a good idea. Hope things settle down for you soon.
HopesMom - I'm glad the kitty is feeling better. Did you do your run yesterday?
AFM: no running today, but I'm encouraged because I don't hurt after yesterday's three. Maybe bike or hike this afternoon.
