It's Friday Penguins - Time To Break Out Your Red Solo Cups! (Read 32 times)

    Gustav, I will talk to the pacers tomorrow at packet pickup. That will be the deciding factor, if they plan to run some 8:00 miles to bank time, then probably not. I want to target 8:40-8:45 pace. But if they plan to stay at 8:35, then I will stay close to them. As long as the 4:00 marathon pacer(9:10mm) don't pass me, I'm good.

    Barking Mad To Run

      Just popping in to say a quick hello and Happy Friday!  I am off today, yay.  Also it is Gail's birthday today.  We are about to head out and help with packet pickup for a local race tomorrow.  Exciting times for Gail's birthday, huh? Big grin

       

      Dave, great news for you, so glad it is not a stress fracture!  Nice on the 8 miles too!

       

      Damaris, sorry to hear about your kitty's eye infection.  Hope kitty heals fast!  Sorry too, to hear about the guy whose dog did not make it, that is so sad.

       

      Gustav,, what the heck is a Red Solo cup?  And is Red Solo a relation of Hans Solo?  Gee, if Red Solo is a guy, I don't think I want to know about his cup...Joking

       

      Sorry about the sore legs, Jimmy.  Get some biofreeze, rub it on, works great.  Peppermint lotion for legs and feet works well too.

       

      Good luck with your race on Sunday, Mitch.  I have Race #12 for 2013 tomorrow morning.

       

      Congrats on your weight loss consistency, Awood!

       

      Safe drive to the mountains, Margo!  Have a fun time!

       

      Enjoy your SRD, Kristin, and safe drive for you too!

       

      Looks like you are putting in some miles, Tomas!  Sorry about the sore throat, hope you feel better.  Good luck to you and DW with you training for the race.  Makes it special when you run with a special person.  Gail and I did Honolulu 2000 marathon together.

      Miles to go

        Morning pens!  It's a good thing that I have my LR today because I ate 68923421 pieces of chocolate yesterday!  Have 12 on the schedule after work.

        PRs: 5K: 25:35 / 10K: 53:03 / 10mi: 1:26:15 / HM: 1:55:02


        Singer who doesn't run.

          Morning, Penguins!!  Well, one of my instruments died at just after 5 pm last night.  I tried a few different things to revive it, but in the end I had to place a service call.  Best case scenario is that they can ship me a part today and install it on Monday.  Hoping I'm not down for long!  Also hoping for a swim today.  At least if I can't generate data, I can spend the day analyzing last week's data and putting department stuff together.

          Gustav -- man, that song is going to be stuck in my head all day!!

          jblack -- yeah, you definitely lose ground when you're off for a while.  Which is why I'm back at square one!

          hog -- enjoy the anticipation!

          D2 -- laughing at the candy boost!!

          awood, I want to know if you won too!!

          Phillie -- family is always good, and usually complicates things.  Have fun!!

          kristin -- glad you got the yoga done!

          Bin -- stay dry!!

          T-rod -- woo-hoo for your wife and MCM!!  Hope you feel better!!

          Docket -- woo-hoo for cool temps!!

          Scotty -- have a good day off, and happy birthday to Gail!!

          Zelanie -- I forgot to get into my little box of chocolate yesterday ... so DH and I will hoover it tonight!!

          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.

            G'morning you beautiful Penguins you!

             

            Gustav-  I bet you were floating in those new shoes.  Good job on getting the miles up there!

             

            Jblack-  yeah, you're legs have to remind us we're alive every once in a while.  While they're awake remind them they have a race coming up.

             

            Mitch- it sounds like you've put in a lot of miles this week even with your race coming up.  Good luck this weekend.  I bet you're fast as heck!

             

            Dtothe2nd-- You must really be enjoying knowing that your legs are okay!

             

            Awood- I know, I found Spirit of the Marathon very inspiring.  Do you have any other favorite running movies?

             

            t-rod, I swear you are a beast!  Those races don't slow you down one bit.  You're so lucky your wife is getting so involved also.

             

            Docket-- you have another marathon this Sunday?

             

            Scotty- enjoy the day off and Gail's B-day!

             

            Zelanie-- LOL@ all that chocolate!  We know what you got for v-day!

             

            HopesMom-- have a nice swim today, and good luck with that instrument.

             

            Today just didn't feel right for me as my coffee pot died on me.  Was taking a RD, so I drove down to the gas station and got a big cup of coffee before i started going psycho on anyone.  It kinda tastes like someone put a cigarette (or 7) out in the bottom of it, but its still coffee and I'm drinking it!

                    Well, my instrument is hosed until Monday earliest.  Turns out I have a bad power supply.  Hmm, maybe I'll head out early and work from home this afternoon ...

                    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.

                      Sorry for the double post, stupid phone!


                      Dad on the run.

                        Traci - Ashley is still doing it with me. She got a really bad cold/sinus infection and like myself has been out of it for a few weeks. But we both got out there Wed and ran a 5k and will do so again this evening when she gets home. Going to be baby steps I guess to build back up to those 7-8 mile LRs Sad

                        My parents said I could be anything when I grew up, so I decided to be Awesome!

                            I can picture it being hosed, but I'm sure it's not the same hosed you are talking about.
