Marathon Maniac #957

    For those of you who are new, this is the 40/40 thread, for people who are over 40 years old who run 40 miles/week or more. We give Free Passes to those who come really close or try really hard...

     

    Here’s what I have for last week’s tally.  I know more of you are out there running, but not much time for posting, but we're thinking about you!

                    Nice job Rob!

                     

                    Holly--my job is going okay.  I've been behind a desk and in the office for the past 30 years and this job isn't like that.  It will take some getting used to and they're expecting a lot out of me--maybe more that I have--but I'm going to give it my best shot.  They really are a great company--it's just so different for me.  Plus the pay is a whole lot less, so that's kind of a bummer, too...but it's better than unemployment! 


                    MM #7877

                      44 miles again this week. Plus 4 hours of ice skating.

                        Mike - I'm sorry to hear this.  Hopefully it will get better, or at least this will keep you working for now and you can keep looking elsewhere.
