Beginners and Beyond

Labor Day Penguins are working hard! (Yeah, right!) (Read 7 times)


Singer who doesn't run.

    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."  And some penguins don't run at all, we just hang out for the company! 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!)

    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.

      As evidenced by the fact that I'm not checking in until 2:00.  But hey, I'm checking in!!  Let's see, I got my bread made, I have the apple dumplings in the oven, I got the laundry done, and I went for a run/walk with DH and Dusty this morning.  So it's at least a semi-productive day, and I'm enjoying myself.  Woo-hoo!!  I like these 3 day weekends ...

       

      Ginny, I hate crowded campgrounds too.  Glad Ben wasn't off after the bears!!

        I ended up with 5.7 warm miles this afternoon. I mowed first, so didn't have a lot of energy to go any farther. Rain tomorrow, then we cool off again. Hurray.
