I was thinking the same thing about mc's water stop photo; a good shot for the Boomer God Calendar!! I still think he needs a little speed/strength/hillwork, though. It's a wonder he can lift the water cup.
I like Tramps' hothead kitty!
A big zero on the schedule for me; missed my swim workout.

this was my birthday run, which made me think about the past; two birthdays ago i was on my way up to 143 lb; today i weighed in at 117; when i started running i couldn't make it 3 miles; now a couple of HMs behind me, with a couple of 5Ks and a 10K thrown in. and the future - time to sign up for the wenatchee HM and get a PLAN. it's too easy to bag running without the PLAN. i am really really glad to have made this change.
Happy Birthday Susan and congrats on the great progress! Sounds like it was a good BD run. Glad to hear Pelle got to enjoy it with you. Wishing you a great year ahead with some fun HMs!
4 miles in the dark... and -5F. This run, like Mariposai's, was not fun at all. I think I froze my eyeballs. Weird feeling, but with my eyelashes frozen up, it was really hard to see. I have run in much colder conditions without this problem, so not sure what's going on. I was going to run the treadmill, but forgot my running bra so had to go home. By the time I got home, I didn't feel like taking the car out again and figured even with the time to "dress up" it would be less time than driving to the gym and back. So, bundled up and was warm enuf everywhere but my eyes... the strangest feeling. Vision was blurry shortly after the 2.25 mile turnaround, and with the uneven icy terrain that got pretty dicey near the end. Quit at 4 miles (just before the real steep climb up to my road) and walked up the powerline, the shortcut the kids take to/from the bus. All in all, not a bad run, but the effect on my eyes was a concern. I've got alot of long cold runs ahead of me, and can't afford to have my vision blurring up if it's around zero or colder!!
Yikes, Erika, that sounds pretty uncomfortable! Maybe you should run wearing ski goggles? Who cares what it looks like, right? Your missing bra reminded me of a wardrobe problem I had once when changing after work to go run. When I ret'd to my office the next day, I found my panties hanging on the door knob to the bathroom. Guess they got caught when I was carrying clothes back to my gym bag. This is why our mothers always said to wear clean panties.
Great kitty photo, Tramps.
Dark Horse, definitely show your friend the photos of you with the arm candy and tell him you don't need to look like a cartoon figure to pick up hawt chicks.

I thought of that... just can't restrict vision any more (darkness-wise)...

A former boss called DW at work last week. I called him back. He said he'd hire me. I'd keep my benefit package and it would be 30 miles from home. I'd be home every night. The other position would be a challenge. However, with Mom in Hospice care and other events in life, maybe a position that requires travel isn't in anyone's best interest. I've had to ask myself today, "Have I been headed where God leads me, or have I been headed in my own direction and expecting God to follow?". One thing I've learned from the former boss is to celebrate all outcomes.
I bagged running today as I went and did a few things over at Mom's

Ski goggles to run would work, I thought about wearing them to cycle too. Choovie, I always thought the clean underwear thing was in case you got in an accident !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/biggrin.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/biggrin.gif|border=0!
