Eks, thanks for adding me, I'll let you know how it goes! Everyone here says its a lot of fun and I figured that music and a crowd would be good at motivating/distracting me... Every time I see a rock n roll advertised, it has had a half and a full (maybe I'll go for a full next year

And, I don't know the etiquette for saying congratulations (is that the right word?) for someone weaning, but I'm glad it is working out peacefully for your DD... I've already started getting flack from family and friends about BF, "now that she's a year" (well, almost a year)...

Calico, my experience was that I got some flack (pretty mild, actually) for a while and at that point I began to make it private and the flack went away. I didn't care so much if people said things to me, but I didn't really want my DD hearing their comments as she got old enough to pick up on what they were saying. Example - I used to BF her as soon as I got to my parents' house to pick her up in the afternoons, but after a while we switched to doing it as soon as we got to our house. However, that did probably speed up the weaning process because when we would get home she would find she was interested in the toys there that she hadn't seen all day. She was close to 2 at this point. Good luck with your DD...

I got in a very dark 4 miles in last night with dh and K. Glad I got out there-I haven't run since Sunday.

What a lucky, lucky little girl EK is

Stressed city here. My proposal is done and I released it to the university. The university hasn't actually submitted the sucker to NSF yet and I can't figure out why. :

TOTALLY ready for Dingo Bingo.

Ok, so I started trying to write up a Dingo Bingo card, and I realize I don't know how to play bingo.

Maybe I should clean my desk instead.

Geo-hope you get an answer soon-that is frustrating.

I am sitting on the computer when my inlaws should be here any minute-they are coming over to watch K so I can meet dh at a bar for his "work" party. K was already anxious when I put her down for a nap She is snoozing now- I will have to wake her up soon-because I want her to hang with them a bit before I leave. Just as a little background info-ask me the last time I got sick from drinking too much-yes-the first time my inlaws watched K-I was so nervous-I just kept drinking

Geo I hope they hurry up and submit! As for bingo, they call one of the 5 letters with a number, and you have a card that is I think 5x5 with the middle as a free space. B's are like 1-15, I's are like 16-30 and so on or something similar to that. All the cards are different. So they call B13 and you see if you have it, etc. etc. until you fill a line or a pattern or whatever the game has specified. I used to play bingo online in college. : Wow that's a really embarrassing timewaster revelation.

Thanks all for the nice nursing comments. It's kind of funny to think back to when I was pregnant and I seriously wouldn't commit to how long I would nurse. Then every time we approached a milestone (6 weeks, 3 mos, 6 mos, and so on) I extended it... then finally when we hit a year I decided I wasn't going to commit to weaning at any set time. Funny 180 degrees.

Pumpkinseed I hope it all goes OK w/ the ILs.

subbing...I don't usually have the energy to run after dinner, but I am thinking I might go downstairs and do some TV TM tonight.

2 miles outside in the slush. Whoo hoo! I am on the mend from this cold, because it didn't feel like I was dying. I got my new running shoes today (I mail ordered the exact same ones I already had) and wow did they feel terrific!

Questions for everyone.

Shoes. How often do you replace yours? (I just went too long in a pair, I think.) What do you do with your old ones? Do you have a different pair for running in the winter? I've been wondering about getting some waterproof trail shoes for the real mucky days.

Running bras. How many do you own? I have three, and I'm scrambling with the laundry when I'm running every day.

Winter training in general. Do you take an "off" season? If so, what does it look like? This next month, I am not timing any of my runs nor trying to run any specific speed. I'd like to build a little distance and get up to a 8-10 mile LR, but other than that I am taking it easy. Is this easy enough? Hard enough?

Shanti & Mamabeth, do you ladies run into the same problem with althetic wear that the shoulders and bust never fit in the same size? I think it is made for the rest of you ladies. Or are there particular brands you have found fit better than others?

CHECK IT OUT!!
It's almost ready!!!
My photography blog

I like this guy a lot.

I'm pages and pages and pages behind. Sorry.
I'm so stressed out, exhausted, and just plain crabby/tired/scared.... from moving and work and my mother and Chris' vasectomy this morning and my surgery on Tuesday for which I'm extremely scared.... and my back has been hurting and I haven't run since Sunday.

So, I'm way behind. Sorry.

I replace my shoes about the 500 mile mark - usually about 6 months a pair...sometimes longer, but not usually.

I had 2 running bras - they just stunk

I used to take winters off...but I ran through last winter and I was really glad. I have eased up some for a month or so to give my body a rest.

post #38 of 831
Stopping by to sub this month.....

Had kind of a crazy few months. Started working almost full-time in October, then dh developed a pinched nerve in his neck, followed by a rip-roaring skin infection on his leg. He was in the hospital for 4 days, then there was a long slow recovery with the neck stuff but has been back to his old self for the past 2-3 weeks. I stopped running somewhere in there for almost a month but am back, at least twice a week.

How the heck do you ladies manage long runs on the TM??? I'm bored out of my skull, even with my ipod. Plus, my gym keeps the cardio room WAY too warm, and I get the irresistible urge to shed all my clothes. Unfortunately, it's been 10 degrees below in the a.m., so I'm not terribly motivated to run outside.

Hi Mamas,

Reb your site is looking great. You have so much going on woman, I hope the next week goes easily for you with all the stuff on the schedule!

I had a great MW appointment, baby is way way down and vertical. Good baby! I have been having regularish contractions tonight but no gunk or show to show for it so I think it is just for practice and for toning. But, I feel really free now, it is the weekend and Mr D will be around the whole time. Ahhhhh.

Bye ND

OK, I don't know if this makes me an exhibitionist or what : but sometimes I get that same need to shed clothes and I kind of use it as motivation. : Most of my shirts try to choke me when I run on the TM. If I have the attacking shirt plus being really hot then I struggle with keeping my shirt on. I find that when I do decide to throw caution to the wind and take it off, I find it sort of uplifting, like, "Well, who cares what y'all think, I'm doing this for my COMFORT!" It gets me through that last mile or so.
