94 days? Yikes! You're making me scared! :)
From Tom Slick on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 00:46:17 from 184.108.40.206
Smooth - you know better than that,,,,run smart!
From Teena Marie on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 09:17:43 from 220.127.116.11
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 22.214.171.124
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 126.96.36.199
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 188.8.131.52
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 184.108.40.206
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 220.127.116.11
Someday I hope to take you up on the offer. Not sure about sleeping in your backyard, though. :)
