Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
Congrats to Erice for a PR at Equinox this past weekend. Woot Woot!!

Can I hang out here for a while?
With no race in the horizon until late Spring in 2013 I need a group that keeps me motivated and moving.
My plan for the week (sorry, I don't know how to get fancy up with my plan for the week like OrangeMat )
Monday: 5.5 miles of running plus 4 miles of walking
Tuesday: whatever the Easy Pacer wants to run plus gym after work.
Wednesday: 6 to 8 miles. NOT...just eliptical and weights. Smoke is back in the valley.
Thursday: No exercise at all due to the bad air quality.
Saturday: run in the woods for 2 hours.
Total for the week: I would be thrilled with 35 miles at the end of the week.
