For a little while at least it is sweater weather. Low 50's, long sleeves, warm coffee. How are you starting the day?
I am headed to the church in a bit to help with a mailing. So I will be stuffing envelopes and meeting new people!
Our temps are pretty decent at the moment.
take cookies. You'll make friends more quickly!
Supposedly the church admin is bringing breakfast for the volunteers.
Stuffing face and meeting new envelopes.
I've a long sleeved T under a sweater and long walking shorts. Perfect. Misha and I met all kinds of dogs at the park this morning.
Iced my feet last night (the heel on one, the ball on the other) and slept pretty well. Going for 3 miles once I get the dog situated. I'll be wearing the old shoes though.
Best wishes to our traveling man Dave today. and FB tells me Lee is headed to the mainland so a lot of travel time for her as well. Safe travels to all - walking, running, driving, flying.
Don't you just love wearing a sweatshirt and shorts? My favorite fall attire.
I am going walking this evening with my friend. She just returned from spending 10 days in Michigan -- Mackinac Island and Northport MI. She had a great time and great weather!
enjoy your run. hope the foot behaves
The foot didn't
but ice is my friend.
so you have PFish issues? I can tell you what I did to help it along.
yes. please share. PF on the right foot. possible Morton's neuroma on the left.....
I took my stick to my arch. Hard. I rolled it hard (until I could not stand the pain) a few times a day. I am always in shoes. right from out of the bed. no more barefoot. My arch is sore to the touch but my heel is feeling better and did not hurt on today run. I am of course rolling my calf and standing on my foam roller, but taking the stick to my arch is what seems to work.
the neuroma is a tricky thing. I do have one on my left foot. It flairs. I usually take NSAIDs to help with the pain.
Thanks Geel. I had a massage therapist who agrees with you. She told me I wasn't being hard enough on myself. and to really yank on my toes and move them in all directions.
I'm at the hotel doing a bit of work until the kid gets here from up north. Sleep was so-so last night so I am hoping for not too much trouble on the roads today. Good thing I get a night in my own bed tonight before heading toward Florida tomorrow.
Annabelle's biological father, his girlfriend, and their 4 kids leave from the Grand Rapids airport today. That is why we are meeting here.
Hope you have a smooth drive back home and yea for getting to sleep in your own bed tonight.
So are the 4 children the offspring of the biological Dad and girlfriend?
What grade will Annabelle be in this year?
You are a good person Dave!

2 are theirs and 2 are hers.
Annabelle is going into 4th grade. If I can get her home by noon on Thursday, she can go see who her teacher will be.
hope your neck plays nice.
no sweaters here. it's naked weather. no code
hot and humid today. overcast helps. 9.10 miles this am. its getting lighter later.
7 miles at "tempo" looks like I"m going to have to change my goal to a slower time. I'm not making the grade.
Book review: "Roar" by dr. stacy sims. all things female. I learned some tips on how to react to my ever changing body. Seems menopause changes more than you think. I highly recommend reading the book. It was scientific and an easy read. Which is perfect for a gal who can't handle the big words. making changes this week. hope they pay off.
Well that ought to bring Rob out.
I was going to ask about Roar today. I'm glad you got some good info from it.
read it. it explains the whys behind things as they pertain to an athlete.
Maybe Lynda should read this book. You read it one day and you immediately start you post...."It's naked weather here." I'm just up the road from you and it says 72. Definite read for Lynda.

So what is the book about? Is it something I should read?
Angiogram: Last Saturday my wife and I were in ln Salt Lake City for a friends wedding and I was rocking and rolling (which I also love to do) on the dance floor and after a bit I developed excruciating pain in chest and back and I was so dizzy I couldn't stand up, so off to ER, assuming a heart attack - wound up experiencing an angiogram and all okay (relief). What Dr. believed was that at the elevation of 6500 ft. and all my R&R dancing led to a severe loss of oxygen living/caused the excruciating pain. My 'Living Angle" wife drove me yo ER at St. Mark's (Salt Lake City) - we arrived at 10:30pm on Saturday and I was release at 5pm on Sunday. No sleep for about 16 hours.
When it happened I thought oh boy I am going, and got very sad actually some crying. Now, home and feeling very good, Dr. orders: no driving and no physical activity for three days, so come Wednesday I am free to go.
I never want that experience again. Have a good week all, and be careful!
Jim (FB=Jim Rungear)
I am glad to know you are ok Jim. Elevation does weird stuff to our bodies. Rest, relax, put your feet up. And keep us posted.
OH geez. I'm happy to hear that you are okay. I'm also happy it was nothing to serious.
Oh man that has to be scary.
A frightening moment for sure. Glad to hear you are doing well.

Sounds scary but glad you're ok.
This was a late start and I kept putting off the run. "Slept" 10+ hours but first 3 were bad sleep. The run walk was not real good. Just fighting my body. No apparent reason. Off to do a bunch errands.
Tom in DE
it's a good day to run errands.
Now that I'm back into the school routine, I am also back to waking up before the alarm goes off. I don't really know what time I woke up this morning, but it was well before my 4:30 am alarm. I was awake for a bit, then drifted off to sleep and my alarm pulled me out of a good sleep. Local news anchors were talking this morning about how not getting at least 6 hours of sleep per night is bad for your brain and similar to alcohol intoxication
I did stumble down the hallway, but once I started running I stayed on the road.
I usually get at least 6-7 every night.
Ran 8 this morning. Nice moon out.
Kids come to school tomorrow. Hope they get more than 6 hours of sleep tonight.
It just seems wrong to read "kids come to school tomorrow." You are amazing with 8 milers.
first day is always good! time for a nap?

Sweating weather here, not sweater weather yet. So far the rain has held off although we got some last night. The air is muggy. Marigolds are happy.
I just had the best run in a long time. I ran on the trails and found some new ones: single track, moderately technical, and very runnable. I'm delighted!
Did the Dawn 10k at lunch time. Nice running weather, probably about 75 out.
I think because I"m up at the butt crack of Dawn (code) that I get the humidity.
Humid Butt Crack! We should start a band by that name.
A bit muggy on my noon run. But with the temps in the 70's it was no big deal. Got 14 on tap for early tomorrow morning. Will see how sticky I am in the morning.
Leg 2 of the trip it's over. Mostly a good drive but got stopped by a bad accident in Circleville OH. Traffic was routed through a parking lot but it took a long time. Medical helicopter landed in the road while we were in traffic.
Tomorrow, the goal is to get to the south of Atlanta so we have a short drive to Tallahassee on Thursday.
Glad to hear the trip is moving along! Do you and Annabelle entertain yourselves during the drive? Singing? Solving math problems?
She plays video games and watches Netflix. I drive.
