Beginners and Beyond


Fun Friday Penguins! (Read 4 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.

      TGIF, Penguins all!!  I had a great time at chorus last night, and the guest who got her car window broken and her purse stolen came back for another try, and left with an intact car, so that's all good!!  Today is Friday, leading into a 3-day weekend for most people, so woo-hoo for Friday!!!  My volunteer gig for this afternoon was cancelled due to the impending rain, which does not hurt my feelings at all.  So double woo-hoo!!

      What's on tap for this long weekend, folks?  I've already told you all my plans, most of which involve me in the kitchen!

        Morning!  I went to PT this morning and have Pilates tonight.


        HopesMom, glad your friend didn't have her car broken into for the second time!

        It's always fucking hot in Miami!

          Happy Labor Day everyone.


          We took our three day weekend early, since I hate crowded campgrounds. We spent the last two nights at Hickory Run State Park in northeastern PA. I ran twice: a 6 mile easy run on hilly park roads and a fairly flat 6 mile tempo run on the Lehigh Gorge Rail Trail.  Yesterday we went for a 13 mile hike and scared up a mama black bear with three cubs. Ben got very excited. I was very happy he was on leash or we would have lost him.
