We've met, right? I think we have. I'm a friend of Teena's. What do you mean by night shift run? -Just that you ran at night? I ask because I work the night shift and wonder if you do, too.

You do realize you've averaged over 10 miles per day for 2011 -- MANIMAL!

Glidergirl-I do believe we have met! By the term Night shift run, I am remarking on the fact that it gets dark here really early....and I'm out there running in the darkness of the night. How do you get your runs in, do you run before or after your shifts. Hey are you doing Boston 2011? And as of this writing I'm still working the day shift at my place of employment.

Marc-I did not know this and you should not have told me this as it just scares me to death. 38 days till Cowtown....I can't wait, It's gunna be so much fun kicking off my marathon running season doing the Cowtown with you and your pace group!!!!
