Hey Mr. Slick, I just noticed we have similar blog names. Maybe yours it a little more to the point than mine, but similar just the same! : )
From Tom Slick on Wed, Jan 12, 2011 at 21:58:41 from 184.108.40.206
Kim; Hey thanks for the running complement. It's been a tough cold past few weeks. Enough so that I decided to take a day off. I'll catch another 34 miles the next three days to keep myself true to my Boston training schedule. I see you've got 18+ miles in so far this week...What event is next on your list of things to do?
Now just for fun and enlightenment, I'm gunna go out on a limb here and ask how "KIM" and "TOM SLICK" are similar????
From Tom Slick on Wed, Jan 12, 2011 at 21:59:52 from 220.127.116.11
Kelli: Oh Ya!!!! 95! Your right
From Tom Slick on Wed, Jan 12, 2011 at 22:01:49 from 18.104.22.168
timP: so far so good, hope it gets a bit warmer around here...Hows the weather in your neck of the woods?
From RAD on Wed, Jan 12, 2011 at 22:03:22 from 22.214.171.124
Slick, I think Kim means the titles. Hers is: Work will win when wishy washy wishing won't.
I'm glad you were able to take a rest day, you have been pounding the pavement and making the rest of us look bad :) Your running is amazing, I'm glad things are falling in place so well I can't wait for the next 96 days to pass to see how you kick some trash at Boston!!!
From Kim on Wed, Jan 12, 2011 at 22:16:21 from 126.96.36.199
RAD, thanks for correcting me. ha ha! Tom Slick and Kim don't really have much in common. : )

i heart alliteration.
nice week so far, slick. the rest day is well-deserved.
From timp on Thu, Jan 13, 2011 at 08:53:50 from 184.108.40.206
yeah Slick - it is all ice down here this week. No big deal for you guys, but it shuts this town down. It has made for interesting running at least.
From Tom Slick on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 00:07:52 from 220.127.116.11
Yo Kim, I like Your 8 "W's"...
From Kim on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 13:10:05 from 18.104.22.168
Your 6 "P's" aren't so bad either. :)
