Thanks Twocat. We watched Annie Hall on TCM last night. That was about the 10th time I've seen it. Woody Allen's comedy in the movie always inspires me.
I did another short run today so I've run 6.7 miles today and done weights. Not bad for 2 days after a race but yesterday was a rest day except for a dog walk and tomorrow will be a total rest day.

Holly--I hope your crisis has passed...we all go through them.
I had a physical after work. I had a spot on my chest that I just knew was cancerous...but it was nothing. I did get some medication that's supposed to take care of my nightly peeing...
Anyway...I came home, did my 18 burpees, did my 6.2 mile run (in 48:20), and did a quick 25:00 weight workout....now it's time to go shovel.

one of the benefits of the aging process is getting so slow you don't even realize a course is hilly anymore

Not that it had anything to do with anything but, with more than 75% on the ladies side,
it was an almost Guinness Book mix of genders.

Hi friends. I've been away this weekend on a family getaway. Which was wonderful until we had to navigate our way home in a blizzard.
Made it home safe and sound so all is well.
Mariposai girl - I'm glad you're sproinky and Yakima is sooo fun, you will love it!
Ribs - the photo is fantastic! I can't believe the size of Riblet, WOW! Gorgeous family! Was neat to see Spare tire, I remember him from years ago.
Deez - confirmation that you are a nut is your new saying ....... and nice hilly 7.4!
Slo - Awesome! I'm glad you're chompin' !!
Wild - Holy crap woman! Beautiful 25 miler!! (I always roll up my tights too).... Who cares what people think
Holly - hang in there... It get's easier. I know your girl is a strong independent little spitfire, which is perfect...just tough right now
MikeE - I did a 6.2 mile run last night also. But a bit slower than you. 53:37, which was fast for me though. I ran with a co-worker who can easily pound out 7's. But he ran 28 mi on trails on Sunday, so decided to go slower. Although I know he stil could have easily run 8's and that would have been easy for him, so I appreciate that he really took it slow and ran 8:30s with me.
