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.
It's National Punch Day -- the kind you drink, not the kind you painfully recover from. Though a Wednesday is probably not the best day to celebrate either kind ...
Ginny, glad you got a good run in!!
Not much going on here, just enjoying being more on top of things. I was diagnosed a few weeks ago with sleep apnea, and I've had my CPAP almost two weeks now. The difference in how I feel and think is absolutely astounding!
Been throwing up since 3am, sigh. No 12 miler, no birthday celebration, gah. But my parents look to be fine after the hurricane.

It's always fucking hot in Miami! (except for 3 days of the year)
D - good news about your parents. I'm sorry about the stomach issue though. Flu or something you ate?
HM - I'm glad the mask has helped. Was it hard to get used to falling asleep with it on?
AFM: I ran 8.8 hot miles today. It wasn't as humid, so the run was decent, though not super easy.
Something I ate last night. Ugh.
