I spent a long weekend shopping, shopping, shopping. Had a great time, spent lots of money, got lots of new clothes (a necessity since my old ones had become too big). Just wish I could get my friend to quit dating losers. Now, back to reality-work, work work.

Got a short ride on the exercise bike in. Now I have to pass out candy. We don't get a lot of kids but enough to keep me in the living room instead of the basement.

G'day all

Feeling cheecky this morning. Dont know why but I am

Oh Ann how cool it would be if y'all did show up. To give you a real hug and go for a run with you and your kiddos would be wonderful fun.

Feeling very much like a run in the sun at lunchtime today it will be a warm one with temps set for 30c today. I guess thats around the 90 mark for you guys. Might have to hit the pool after work tonight and bang out some laps.

How good is this healthy lifestyle stuff hey.

Lots of good running going on in here! Keep it up, I'm living vicariously through all of you. emoticon

Judi, HI! I'm jealous of your snow. We got so little snow last winter! I think I only went x-country skiing two times. Boo. I hope there's more this year, even if it means I have to end the GBWA.

I'm scheduled for a shot on Nov. 16 and that should help with the pain. Unfortunately, I have to be off of NSAIDs for a full seven days before the shot and no asprin for five days before the shot. They normally give people some sort of prescription painkiller for that intervening period....but I'm allergic to opiate drugs (vicodin, oxycodone, morphine) so I'm kind of screwed. So the current plan for next week is to drink heavily and cry a lot. (Hey, they didn't say ANYTHING about alcohol.) emoticon emoticon

But, in happy news, I'm headed to Chicago tonight to visit my beau. He's been in England for the past 2.5 weeks and he's home for exactly one day before he leaves for Peru for the next 3 weeks. And he doesn't know I'm coming, so it will be a fun surprise.

To all those on the east coast, keep staying safe.

(And Doris, why the heck aren't you in the Carribean WITH the boat?!) emoticon

Happy Tuesday!

Just finished my run in the rain.
Singin' in the rain,
just singin' in the rain,
the most glorious feeling,
I'm happy again.....
It was lovely! It is so much fun using a garmin - I can see every run how things are getting better. I'm still not yet up to Penguin status, but having a blast getting there.
Anne, when I was prego with my son the doc said the entire time that it was twins. He was the only one in there tho. He was more than enough to deal with...... lol

Hi All,
So glad tonight is here. Long, long day.
I came through my LAST CHECKUP with flying colors!~ Yee Haw!!!!!! God is so very good to me. Don't know why, but sure am thankful. No more cancer. I am through the remission period. Whew.
Anne, I love piglet...... anything Winnie the Pooh related is good. Piglet is adorable. Can't believe Miles is already 3. I remember when we were waiting on him.
Nera, enjoy that TM run. It'll be a victory for you.
Snow running.... that is devotion!
Still praying for safety for all you Easties!
Rich - how big is your place? You will be needing lots of room!

Blessings,
Kimiko

It's been awhile since I checked in.

Jenny, I hope you start feeling better really soon.

Anne - I love "Chase" much more than "Piglet"!

Anne/Bobby, I'm so glad to hear that your son is okay. When my son was in an accident earlier this summer, my hubby wouldn't let me see the truck. My son was in the second row of seats, and all five people were wearing seatbelts and walked away. But the truck hit two trees before stopping, and one of the trees crashed down on the roof. It's horrible to get that phone call from the hospital, but vehicles can be replaced.

Doris, was your boat already in the Caribbean? The storm went through there too, didn't it? I hope it weathered well.

I've been running in the snow lately. We have had snow every day for a week, although it was sunny in the morning yesterday. But others are going through so much more, so this little bit of snow is nothing really. Stay safe out there folks.

Yep, going to Oz to visit Rich and Maddie. If this weather is an indication of the winter to come, I shall just pull the blankets over my head and hide. Mother nature is playing a nasty trick on us! Last year at this time we of just over 2 feet of snow. Now, we have winds of 30-50 miles and hour and 4-6 inches of rain. I think I would rather have snow.sigh

Rich-is your winter over already?? somehow that doesn't seem fair!
Kim-hope the checkup is clear. and great job on the run!! Baby is due April 17-two days after Miles' 3rd birthday(we've never had 3 yrs between babies!!)
I cannot believe how terrible this storm is! Even our state is getting serious wind. But COLD! some snow flurries expected in the morning Tues. Lauryn had her very last XC meet of her 4 yr running career. it was WINDY and frigid! She did great, no PR but she did great! I ran 3.6 miles this a.m with my SIL . That was really nice catching up with her. I asked if she wanted to do another 1.8 mile loop and she said, "No! You're wearing me out!" Apparently, she runs an 11-11:15 pace and we did 10:15 the first loop and I slowed down b/c I noticed her breathing on the 2nd loop. Hopefully, we can do this occasionally-it's good for both of us. I'm feeling great! Saw the OB today and little Chase/Piglet is doing fabulous! the scale is getting higher and higher...I'm quite sure it cannot have ANYTHING to do with the multiple portions that I eat. UGH! I did better today on eating and I'm so thirsty that I cannot get enough water!!

So, here in northern NE (NH) we have a little rain and a little wind. OK, so the wind is strong enough to blow shingles off some people's roof. There has been some minor road flooding and many folks without electricity. It could be worse though. It could be 10 F outside instead of 55F! No run today. Just couldn't do it. I am off to clean out the roll top desk so someone can come look at it tomorrow/Wed. and hopefully take it home with him!

Happy running, you running fools:)

Good Day all,
Praying for all you East Coasters.
It is absolutely perfect here in Port Angeles. Just got in from my lil run. I am so slow - not even up to the Penguin Pace. lol But, I love it and going out and trotting down the trail feels so good. All the cute lil older ladies and gents just encourage me and give me verbal pats on the back. So, I am doing my farthest distance in ages. Today was 3.25 miles and I feel like gold medalist! Look out Meb!
Nera, I am keeping your family in my prayers and just know that there is something good around the corner for you.
Mom of Many (Anne) when is your newest babe due? You are so absolutely blest. I just love babes.
I have to get to homework. Today is my (hopefully) last check up for cancer. Praying that all comes through and I'll be done forever!
Kim

Blessings,
Kimiko

Hi all! Hurricane Sandy is bearing down on us so I guess the treadmill is calling my name..boo! Really not to bad outside yet...wind is starting to get worse and there is a steady drizzle rain but not sure I will risk it outside!
Was supposed to have another day long test at the hospital today but I messed up the diet restrictions (didn't think about the fact that their is milk in milk chocolate...duh!). It was only a mini hershey bar at my MIL birthday party. Here I was thinking how good I was being...no cake (can't anyway as I am now gluten free) but I had a little candy bar. Doc says nope..can't do the test now. Reschedule!
Nera-I hope things get better for you..and quickly.
Beth-go get those workouts girl!
Anne/dozen-hope the IT band and other assorted owies are feeling better. Yay for Jacob! I do miss those days!

Hi Rookies!

Finished the Halloween Halfathon yesterday.
No amazing record to report....
Lots of costumes that I would not be able to run in.....

Weather was great except for a very strong headwind for miles 11 and 12.

Hey Rookies! Wow, I can't believe the day is gone. I DID read back, remember some.....
Nera, oh my, prayers being said. It sounds painful! Glad the DH is figuring things out. A bit late, but at least he is figuring things out. Pray that he contributes some good ideas to get things back on track.
Anne and Bobby - Thankful the son is ok! Cars can be replaced.
Rich, January is sooner than you think.....
???? - congrats on the house being on contract now! Woo Hoo! That's fabulous considering the economy!!!
I had a nothing day. Blocked myself out from subbing for the next two weeks as I have a HUGE final coming up on 11/9. All I will be doing is working out and studying taxes. sigh.
Saying a lot of prayers for all of you on the East Coast. Yowza, that storm is a nasty one.


Blessings,
Kimiko

Good evening all!

It's just kind of a waiting game now to see when the storm is going to hit. We got a phone call earlier tonight that said we should expect to be out of power for a week or longer. Ugh.

But really, I am just hoping that there is no major damage and that everyone is safe. I can live without power for a (short) while.

So, we have a plan for getting rid of our stuff. We are going to have "inside yard sales" over the next few weekends. Anything that hasn't gone, will be donated to charity. Good Will actually will send a truck and some guys to load it all up. Phew. Now, to decide what to move to the boat.....
No run today. Did killer hills yesterday and my legs were a little sore. Now, not so much.
Hope everyone is doing well and staying on track:)

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

Okay grocery shopping was interesting. But enough of that.

I did some barefoot walking and running on the treadmill while I watch the final rounds of bull riding. Felt pretty good.

Hang in there, Nera. Cut where you can -it's hard if you're already down to bones.
Beth-HI!
Rich-when's the first(next) triathlon?
Today has been busy already. I should get out for a walk but am thinking short nap sounds more appropriate. Tomorrow I might run a few miles with SIL. Jacob is brand new to hockey(my running boy) and scored TWO goals in this morning's game!! Of course-Mom misses those rare goals of my boys. DARN!! I would have been blubbering anyway....

Good morning. Lots of things being thought over and reflected on. Cable will be gone if we can do so with out penalty. Can't do a thing about the phones for another year and a half. Gym will probably go too. It is only $10 but all I use is the pool and between the over chloranation and the kids I am not enjoying it much. I had a black swimsuit that was bleached almost white from how they treat that pool.

Not sure what exercise I will do today. I have to figure out a few budget things with the hubby and the son wants to video chat at noon. I had best get a move on.

Doris, maybe you should tell yourself at the beginning of your run that you are already at mile 1...then the rest will be easier. :)
Nera-hope things improve...
Rich-glad you're feeling a bit better...

Rich I hope you are feeling better. Head aches are the worse.

I tried to go in and do OT but really didn't seem to accomplish much. Came home after 3 hours. Long nap on couch during Florida Georgia football game helped a lot.

Hubby is starting to realize how short of money we are. Lot's of past decisions being reevalutated. But have to move forward and figure it out somehow.

Hi all. Our house is now under contract. This is a good thing, we do have mixed emotions about it. But, we are ready to sell. Now comes the hard part. As we not moving to our own "new" space, but renting my parents house for 6 months and living on a boat for 6 months, we have to sell almost all of our stuff. yikes!!! anyone need a treadmill? Anyway, I think we are going to have an estate sale. Gotta get cracking as we close the deal in 4 weeks!
Got in a 3 mile run this morning. I have no idea why the first mile is always so blasted hard for me. Everything hurts and I can't breath. After that though, its fine. Sheesh.



Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.
