Happy Birthday Mike!

Anne, yes... we're not ready for it and it's been absolute chaos... The town my family lives in has had no electricity since yesterday at 3pm, still dark and no heating... pathetic, then again... this happens once every 25 years so I guess investing in it is pointless... Tried to go for a run but the sidewalks were just impossible. But got the best piece of news... no school tomorrow again so... if kids do have school (I hope so) I get to go running at whatever time I feel like, woohoo!!!! I'll run in the middle of the road if necessary where it is nice and clean! It is wicked cold now but hey... bundling up there's no problem!

Take care guys... love running!

Jacky, trying to get there!

Enjoy the snow running. We got flurries last night, but no real snow. Bummer.
Hope everyone has a great day!

Howdy guys! It is beautiful here today so I am getting ready to head out for a sunny run! Started the day at 3:30 a.m. so I better get out there before I fall asleep.
Christy-Hi girl! Glad to see you. Also glad you are feeling better. Stop by more often.
Jacky-snow in Spain? Isn't that where you are? Oh my. You can keep it. Hope it all melts soon.
Cassie/Judi-never did get to tell you sorry about Tyson getting hit. Good thing they moved the game. We Mom's have to do what's right.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MIKE!!! emoticon Enjoy your day!

We heard from Woman's Day yesterday. They are setting up a photo shoot. She wants to do it asap. Can't believe it. So exciting! Will keep you posted.
Gotta run.

Hey, everybody! Just popping by...haven't been on the RR thread for so long I almost forgot how to get here! Been trying to get back on track again...doc has diagnosed me as pre-diabetic and my BP was out of control. New BP meds and the threat of anti-diabetic meds has given me some motivation now to GOMA (get off my a$$) and back to an exercise and eating program. No running, though--the knee is completely shot and I'm just doing everything I can to put off a total knee replacement. Took the Synvisc injections last spring and they worked pretty well...might try them again in a month or so. So I'm stuck with walking and low-impact cardio...which, if I will GOMA and do it, will do the trick for me. Anyway, just wanted to poke my head in and say "hi" and let you know I'm still alive and kicking (though not too high). Catcha later!

thanks for all the birthday wishes on fb. its snowing here in Oregon. I can only remember 1 time it actually snowed on my birthday. You guys have had lots of snow during this winter. We don't get much snow here living so close to the coast and very mild weather. So I am headed out to run in snow! you guys do it all the time so I certainly can do it.

I hope everyone has a great day!

Judi-glad that your son isn't showing any signs of concussions AND especially that the game got moved! PHEW!!
Beth-enjoy your vacation and you'll be ready to figure things out when you get back. How long will you be gone?
I ran just now-3.9 miles in 50 minutes...can we all say SLOW??? UGH!! I'm not beating myself up for it-there's a reason. I kind of think that I might have a slight scratchy throat starting:maybe Kaelin shared her cold with Mommy...Thanks~~I'll get a nap this afternoon adn that should help.
Have a great day! Oh, someone(Anne 3?) mentioned running faster burned LESS calories?? Is that true? Mine always shows more calories when I'm faster than other times in that same distance.

Beth- As of Friday iam in no Sonic Breakfast for a week!! Being that I don't like anything else but their Breakfast toasters I shoul be fine!

Start Something- Did you know that the sun not only lifts our spirits but that we get vitamins tht our body needs from it so it actually really does make us feel better not only mentally but physically.

Mom of 10- MMMMM Bday cake emoticon NO CAKE FOR ME!!! BAD MEL!!!! LOL

Well that messy yuky winter weather is finally starting to break! It waswarm this weekend and It was warm yest. in the high 60's. I had the afternoon off from 12 on yest. and Itook my 2 boys to the park it is so beautiful there. They wantedto fish sowe took their poles and a lunch. We walked a little for about 20 min. My youngest is complainig about his legs. He loves to run alot (just playing not to race or anything) but lately he hasn't been he says his thighs hurt. Very strange to me, cause he usually loves to run, and he hasn't even wanted to walk,but he has spent alot of time playing playstation this winter cause it has been unusually cold and I wouldn't let them go out for long.
I think I am going to start him back on his vitamin(sould have been on it all along... I know)Maybe that will help. I think that it is just growing pains personally. After the [ark yest. I went for a ride on the motorcycle with my hubby it was nice till about dusk then it got cold! Today is suppose to rain off and on but the sun is out for now and it is going to me mid 60's. Tomorrow 70 and partly sunny!!!! Yeah Spring!!!!

Anne - whew, it makes me dizzy thinking of all the birthday parties you must have to throw! Enjoy your day.

Beth - did you sleep well, wake refreshed??? How is your mental state these days? Any "post-race" blahs?

I caught a break on the "bad guy" mom syndrome. The boys had a hockey game scheduled for Wednesday night that has been moved til Sunday, so now Tyson won't have to miss that game. I will make my decision later in the week whether he will be playing on Friday night. He put the skates on (no equipment) and skated with the team at practice last night, and still maintains he is *FINE*. There are absolutely no signs of a concussion. . . but the coach did say he was unconscious when he first got to him. If it weren't for that, it would be really hard to keep him down!

Better get going and get ready for work. Glad you had a great day yesterday Trish!

Beth - how was the trainer? I'm signing up for my trainer tonight. Wahoo!

yesterday was 12 minutes of pain-free running. SO thrilled!
Tonight is some yoga. Next running jaunt is on Friday - I'm really really excited about the progress. I'm really trying hard to make sure I go about this the smart way this time.

There is still snow on the ground, but I busted out the sandals today. Yippee!

I actually ran today! I haven't ran since the middle of February because the cold has just been making me want to stay in the house with the fire on all the time but I went out today in the beautiful sunshine! Its crazy how sun can make you feel 10x better. Since I haven't ran for so long, I only did 3.4K but its a start. I'm hoping to run another 7K this week and build back up to running 15K a week again. Apart from a little rain on Friday, we're due for lovely weather all week. I'm so happy! I missed running and its nice to be back out there again.

Good morning team!

It snowed ALL day yesterday here (we're not used, nor ready for it!) so school was cancelled as of 12pm and until tomorrow! The roads were a mess... people stuck in the highway... but as I said... we NEVER get snow and this was a heavy snow storm with lightning and thunder as well... amazing! So I'm home today with the kids!

Trish, you're welcome! You're such a brave and strong woman, you're a champ!

Anne (mom)... WTG on going to another 5K, your little one will sure be a little runner!

Suezette, WTG!

Beth, 35 minutes is more than 0... WTG girl! I am going to try to say away from junk too for 2 days and see what happens... I can't control my eating and that makes me furious!

A beautiful sunny day today... as soon as DH's back from work, I'm out for a run! It was impossible yesterday... wanted to try the snowglobe thing as it will most likely be my only chance of running in the snow but it was way too slippery and extremely windy so I had to come back soaking wet and frozen :p

Have a great day!

Jacky

Jacky, trying to get there!

THANKS to all of you!! Holy, I have never had so many people wish me happy b'day before - between here and facebook (with all of you), I am so extremely blessed!!!!!

Tonight we have had a blast - Kelly O's, then the kidlets totally burried me with silly string - and then some really special gifts from my kidlets.

Now I am working some files that have to be out first thing in the morning, so have to do a spot!

LOVE you all:) Thanks again for being there for and with me:)

Hugs,

there is another 5k this coming Saturday-money goes to DD's high school running program. If she wants to run,though, I'll have to pay for hers and we can't do both entries.
Beth-good luck on the no munching for 2 days..and M+Ms sound so good right now,too!!! Can't wait for Easter...hope the Easter bunny doesn't get too carried away like he has in the past,though....I help the little ones to devour their candy if it stays in the kitchen....older kids hide theirs(smart,aren't they?)
Someone here traded washing dishes for a back rub so I've got to find that someone to get my 'payback'. Good night,Team!

I had to leave a stylist that was a friend and it is hard. I really needed someone who could help me figure out how to cut my hair. Asking me how I want it when I have no idea is why I lived with a curly perm for many many years. LOL!!!

Happy Birthday Trish!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Got in a fast 5 miles this morning. Four of them were sub 9:00 miles!! However, I discovered the downside to running faster is that I dont' burn as many calories. lol I have to run my middle child to the ped. The thumbnail that he injured two months ago is blackened and still hanging on, and today he caught it on his coat. I'm not sure what they can do, but dh and I are totally freaked about the whole thing. Later.

Suezette, you've got a point there, but... maybe to start "detoxing"...

Hi gang!
I'm still alive! Geez... I just seem to have time for nothing but got here just in time!

Beth... I'm in... I am so bad about cravings and caving in... I think it's a great idea, plus we'd have each other for motivation and such!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRISH!!!

So... still running and loving it. Did a 6.5K race on Sunday that was great. Hadn't run in a week due to being sick but it was great... 41:32 and didn't feel like I was pushing it... next race is 3/21, a 10K, followed by more 10Ks on 3/28, 4/11, 4/18, 5/2 and 5/9! I hope I can make them all :p

Missed you guys... you're so encouraging and motivating and so wonderful. I'll try not to be MIA for so long!

Happy running!

Jacky

Beth, My problem with that is I can go the so many days but to have just one serving....the break down begins again...

It's like an alcoholic having just one drink...

Ok team---I need help---I get cravings, cave and then there is no stopping...anyone else have something that they struggle with.....should we start a separate thread....pledge to go so many days without whatever it is that you struggle with and then when your days are up--commit to just one serving and then start all over again???

Who is in???

I've been off for 2 days and there wasn't even ONE message from SP!!! But, I missed you guys!!! I headed right here as soon as I could this morning.
everyone had great races!!! GReat job MIke~~
HAPPY BIRTHDAY,TRISH!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon ( lime "water") for you and Penny.
I'm going to get a blog and pictures up here soon. Kaelin is sick again-fever,cough and terribly snotty nose. Might have to get her down for a nap first...someone crossed her and there's a meltdown happening!!!
Judi-I hear you completely on the hockey/boys/hurt/mom thing. Mine played(sooo wish they still could) and I hated seeing any kid, but especially MINE out on the ice flat. Didn't happen often, but the ramifications can happen a few days to a week later. keep on keeping an eye on him. And, yes, I LOVE it when my kids think I"m mean b/c they can't watch some trashy movie or hang out with 'cool' kids. My 14 yr old tells me 'thank you for being so strict'. It's actually saved her some embarrassment b/c she could blame the "I cannot go out with you" on her mother.
Okay, time to blog-I'm still thrilled about my race Sat. !!!! I have a friend who's about 45 min. away and she's talking about doing a 5k this spring. I told her if she can find one happening in the next couple of weeks, I'd do it with her!! That'd be so fun!!
I've got to get back onto email postings...
Ya'll are GREAT!!!! What a team!!!!

Good Monday Morning to everyone! It's beautiful and springy here in Port Angeles. Just a lovely day.

Happy Birthday Trish!!! emoticon emoticon

Beth, good luck finding a new stylist. It feels wonderful to leave a place and love what happened to your hair.

Today is a running day and then some yoga and push ups. My favorite kind of day.

Hope everyone has a great day!
Kim

Gosh BETH, I feel your "pain", seriously!! I'm the "4-ever loyal" type, always have been but over the yrs have had to switch stylists cpl times. Hardest one was this last time; after telling my close friend/nail tech/4ever stylist over & over what I was wanting & leaving every time w/ the same look & inability to style like I wanted, went to my niece's best friend (niece is an Esthetician @ local spa) & came home w/ EXACTLY what I've wanted for years! Been a year now & I've never looked back although it's still a bit awkward when having my nails done & she says with a smug look, hmmmm.... hair looks cute.

I'd definitely move on and good for you for taking the lead!! No point paying for a service you're not pleased with!

Deej---awesome run....

I am not really due for a trim yet...had a friend doing my hair...5 of us started going to her...never a good idea...how do you stop when you are not happy...how do 5 of you stop when you are not happy....so..I am the first to leave her...need to do something with this hair before we go on vacation....everyday is a struggle and mega product to get it to my liking...We shouldn't have to remind her that we would like an even hair cut....LOL.

HAPPY MONDAY!!! ...and
emoticon HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRISH emoticon Sounds like you and your son had a great night out & will continue with your celebration! HAVE FUN!!!

Thought of ya BOBBY & ANNE as I sat listening to some bands last night. Son plays w/ a few diff groups & one of the bands there was jammin' to "OUR" era of tunes :) thought of you scouting out groups for your HS Reunion (could also just see ANNE boogie oogie'n out there on the floor :)

I'm up for a trim too BETH but will have to wait till 2morrow, closed Mon. Have a great run 2day!!

More FABULOUS FINISHES I see :) Congrats Mike & Mom10+, just incredible stuff!!! :)

CASS, that's so scary!! I can just imagine how frightened you were, the minutes it took to find out for sure he was okay had to feel like an eternity. A big (((HUG))) from one Mom to another! Your a GOOD MOM for insisting he lay low for a bit!!!

Back to computer #2 to work up some cases for the law office then strength & abs 2day. Got in 11.5 @an avg 10.09 pace. Garmin's messed up again (long story), suffice it to say though w/ an easy pace, thought I was gonna avg closer to 11, was pleasantly surprised. The run felt good :) must have been the sun!

Keep on RUNNIN' Rookies, we're gettin' closer & closer to the Spring Sun!! emoticon emoticon
