        congratulations steve! thats a huge achievement
          That's awesome, Dr. Steve! We were hoping you weren't injured during your absence.

          When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?


            Nice job dude! Welcome back to running. I keep thinking about getting a PhD, but the best reason I can come up with is so people will address me as Dr. Phil.


              That is such a great accomplishment Dr. SurfnRun! Those defenses can be grueling. Been there. Dr. Crabby
              Run like you are on fire! 5K goal 24:00 or less (PR 24:34) 10K goal 50:00 or less (PR 52:45) HM goal 1:55:00 or less (PR 2:03:02) Marathon Goal...Less than my PR (PR 4:33:23)

              You'll ruin your knees!

                ...so the defense rests! Congrats! Woot! Lynn B

                  CONGRATS!!!!! Have a nice run today!!

                  Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson

                    Congratulations Steve!! What an accomplishment! Can I ask what your research was on? Smile
                      Congrats Steve! All that work finally paid off!


                        That's awesome, Steve! You deserved those few (a lot) of beers! Good luck on the revisions. Smile k

                          Congratulations! The next beer I have will be in your honor! Big grin (Pam, we'll have to make a toast to Steve on Saturday night after our long run!)



                            Congrats Dr. Steve!!! What subject did you study?
                              Yeah! Did you get a little emotional high afterwards? I could not imagine doing a PhD in with my major. From what I have seen, I could characterize PhD programs as full time job plus some for minimal pay. You go to the University of Hawaii ? One of my best and most enthusiastic professors used to teach out there. modal (remembers seeing lots of cats at the uni over there)


                                Congratulations!!! That's a BIG BIG deal!! Smile
