I hear that! I spent the entire morning watching my Curb Your Enthusiasm DVD's. Lots of fun!

Boston---94 days, more or less!

From Smooth on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 00:33:26 from 67.232.119.27

94 days? Yikes! You're making me scared! :)

From Tom Slick on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 00:46:17 from 69.171.160.190

Smooth - you know better than that,,,,run smart!

From Teena Marie on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 09:17:43 from 67.2.113.131

You are so great when it comes to listening to your body.

Hope you got all rested up.

Have a great run today! :)

How did the black top treat you this morning?

From MarcE on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 16:58:20 from 129.188.33.25

45 days until Cowtown, Slick. The price goes up $10 tomorrow -- Feb 27th. Just sayin'

From Tom Slick on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 17:19:41 from 69.171.160.15

RAD - It was great to get back out on the road. Clocked in a 12 miler during that brief time period that the clouds parted and let the sun shine in!

From Tom Slick on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 17:24:53 from 69.171.160.15

Marc - wow, the Cowtown Marathon is coming up fast. I guess I'll have to make a decision pretty quick?

From MarcE on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 17:52:59 from 129.188.33.25

Slick, I'm not holding my breath -- but it would be fun to run it with you (I could use the support in the 3:40 pace group). DoG - the offer always stands for you, too! (Sorry, Teena, my wife still frowns upon me inviting my female friends that I meet on the internet coming to stay with us :)

From DonGardinero on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 18:37:49 from 184.224.237.203

Someday I hope to take you up on the offer. Not sure about sleeping in your backyard, though. :)
