nice week so far, Slick!

From Kim on Wed, Jan 12, 2011 at 20:48:22 from 67.199.180.90

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 69.171.160.145

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 69.171.160.145

Kelli: Oh Ya!!!! 95! Your right

From Tom Slick on Wed, Jan 12, 2011 at 22:01:49 from 69.171.160.145

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 67.172.229.125

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 67.199.180.90

RAD, thanks for correcting me. ha ha! Tom Slick and Kim don't really have much in common. : )

From allie on Wed, Jan 12, 2011 at 23:16:11 from 174.23.238.75

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 66.167.50.219

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 69.171.160.190

Yo Kim, I like Your 8 "W's"...

From Kim on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 13:10:05 from 67.199.180.90

Your 6 "P's" aren't so bad either. :)
