Chelsea - I still have to do the cotton undies and peel them off, ugh. But I know a lot of women just use the shorts with liners in them. I think your races sound well placed apart. My typical fall season was a 10k in sept, 10k early oct 5k in late oct, 8 k november, and 5k in december. The only reason being those were my favorite races. I always hoped to get competitive by the one in november and december.
moonshine - just tell yourself you just have to get out there for a little walk/run...fake yourself out...and go baby!
pumpkinseed / Reb - dh and I would run together before dd. But he was never really into it, it was more to do it with me and to try and lose weight. Now he doesn't even try. Although I've been noticing on his long days when he has a break between work and school that he's been packing an exercise bag to swim...and he's been doing the pilates abs workout with dd at home...Man I wish I could see that!
Shantimama - does your dh know about the quilt or is it a surprise?
HBM - ugh I feel your pain. My dd has discovered this too, especially with shoes...she will try on every single pair despite my pointing out they are 5 sizes too small...
How's your BP doing? And how are you feeling overall?
CherylAnn - what triggered the wanting to run 50 steps/20 sec? Besides your quads being sore, how's everything else? Busy busy is right!
ND - way to go on your run!
kerc - dd hovers here too...she can play by herself, but she wants to be in the same room as me usually. I just draw the line at her hanging on my chair when I'm trying to type/read...
Geo - sorry we couldn't get together this weekend...after all the visits do you want to try again and pick blackberries, raspberries instead? I'm going to try and go saturday to see what I think of them, I'll let you know how they seem.

So, I've been dealing with a chest cold for 3 weeks now. Except starting yesterday it moved into my nose to. I.cannot.breathe!! It is driving me crazy, I am not getting enough sleep because of it, and I can't take anything!!! Arggghhhh...
I'm not running today, but I'll try tomorrow. My general goals have been just to run every other day with one long run a week until my marathon relay. Then I'll drop the long run. My other runs are usually 2-4 miles, very slow.
