Hi all... So hot out...didn't run since Wed. Too hot for my planned 3 miler for today. Oh, well...doubt it will make that big of a difference. Maybe I'll run 4 or 5 miles Sun. AM.

Swimming one mile at a beach in downtown Chicago. It's the one I've gone to before that is just north of the infamous Navy Pier and follows Lake Shore Drive where the heart of downtown Chicago is. Beautiful skyline, fresh, crisp water with loads of other triathletes swimming... Although the triathletes may be down and the Masters Swimmers from all over up. Sept. 10, weekend after this, there is an area Masters' Swim Event called "Big Shoulders". It's a 2.5/5K swim (you choose...1.5 miles or 3.1). I'm, of course, training for the 1500 swim in the OBX tri and 3 other guys from my swim team is training for the Big Shoulders event. The event is at the same site so there will probably be plenty of swimmers practicing for the event. Fun....Hopefully, it won't rain as scattered T'Storms are in the forecast.

Have a nice evening.....

WELCOME HOME Heather!

Okay, so I'm not the only tripping cleaning lady!

Tammy - Ummm...yay? for the weight loss? Well, okay, it sucks with the way you are doing it...but I think I'd take it!

Good morning!

Carol, I totally understand. I hate coming home to a dirty, cluttered house (though that's usually what happens). I always try to clean the bathroom at least before we go on a trip.

Heather, oh goodness! I can't believe you've been out of power this whole time! A lady I work with just got her power back at 9:30 last night. She is thrilled. Sorry Irene messed up your plans, but I'm glad you're all okay!

Tammy, weeeell, that's one way to lose weight, though not ideal.

Jason got back from NH last night and they had a great time, but he's really sore today. We *might* be going up there tomorrow morning since if we can get to our reserved campsite by noon, we won't get dinged for not being there tonight. The weather is looking pretty sketchy in the White Mountains this weekend, but not too bad here in Rhode Island. Frankly, I'm perfectly happy to stay home and go kayaking and to the beach. Jason's so sore today it might be best for him to not do another hike so soon. We'll see how it goes.

If I don't get the chance to check in later, have a great holiday everyone!

Kelly

hi all - TGIF

Heather welcome back

Carol - Have a great trip. I always like to clean before I go too.

Well I stepped on the scales again this morning and down another 3 lbs so I am within a half pound of my goal weight but somehow the thrill of that just isn't what it was a year ago. Talk about going about it all the WRONG way LOL

So anyone else have big plans for the last "unofficial" weekend of summer?

Hi all!!! We survived the hurricane, but we never got to go away on vacation. We were without power and internet for days. I'm just starting to get myself back together.

I'll be able to catch up this afternoon!

Carol, I always like to clean before I go away. I love to have a clean house to come back to. Have a fun weekend!!!

I was thinking Heather would be back today and so I forgot to start the thread! Good morning! I'm working away on school work and plan to go take a run as soon as it's light out. We have to pack for our trip this weekend and I always like to clean the house before I travel anywhere. Do any of you do that? My husband thinks it's strange that I like to have a clean house to come home to, but I do.
