    For those of you who are new, this is the 40/40 thread, for people who are over 40 years old who run 40 miles/week or more. We give Free Passes to those who come really close or try really hard... quarry

     

    Here’s what I have for last week’s tally.  Sorry so late!

    Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

      Thanks.  A weekend away with no running? Heresy!

        Thanks Holly!  Umm...I know I should mind my own business...but can you say, "Kiss my a..." never mind, I'll just mind my own business.  So, here's my plan for the week.  Mine will change a bit, too.  DW and I are going to Wisconsin Dells to watch a granddaughter perform in a dance competition...but I'm still gonna run, dang it.

          I'll probably need a free pass this week unless I can squeeze in another run.

            Holly, just be sure to show your crankiness this weekend.  Your DH may think twice before making this request again.  Seriously, I hope you have some great family time.

             

            It's a cutback week for me but I should be able to make it to 40, just barely.

            Weekdays: (Tuesday rest): 5-6 M

            Weekend: 12 and 6

             

            Success! 41.5 M for the week.

              congratulations on 1st AG, Paul
