Guess what today is....the ever popular International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Keep yer britches on and post away.
I was trying to decide whether to post here or on oncearunner's daily thread. She was first, but you has the pirate theme. It was going to be a tough choice, but then oncearunner's post disappeared and made my choice easy.
I'm involved in a couple projects at work that are making me dread things. That dread drips over into all of life and I could barely make myself go run today. I managed to get dressed and drive to the park, but even then I almost didn't run. I started my watch and started walking. I had just about convinced myself to turn around and go home but then I forced myself to break into a jog. My motto was, "3 miles is better than nothing".
It ended up being a good run. 3.1 miles and it was pretty sproinky.
Wish I could say the same for work.
3.1 miles is way better than nothing. I hope something good happens at work for you!
Your brain will thank your feet later today for those 3.1 miles. Hopefully your colleagues and computer will too.
Alas, I must have driven Marilyn and her daily into the depths of the unknown.
Thar she blows, Jose churnin off Jersey. The breezes a a blowin, the sky be swirlin, the humidity be suckin. I did my runnin and walkin but did not have to walk the plank.
I'm sitting on the front porch and a tiny spider has a web and somehow caught this giant ant in the bottom of the web. I just watched 20 min of a great battle. The tiny spider finally won out. He will probably invite the entire neighborhood for a feast.

Fire up the Weber and have some Spam & ants.
I saw your post and found it much better than mine, so I deleted mine.

I can talk like a pirate but I can't type like one
Slogged 3.2 (the Naff 5k) in pea soup. At least I didn't need sunblock.
Quad Cities Marathon is this Sunday: highs expected near 90.
Pretty darn happy not to be a part of that this year.
Good day Scallywags. It's raining here. I need to make a decision about our cc meet this evening. Skies are supposed to clear with a 35% chance of scattered storms at race time, then tapering.
I need to go check out the course.
8 miles this morning. What's new Mr. Magoo?
I hope the course is dry Mike. Good luck to your kids!

The meet is a go. Rain chances have dropped. I ran the course during my lunch. It's wet, but no standing water or mud. Thanks!
6.21 miles for my Dawn 10k Nooner
My goal in life is to make you Happy

Can't talk like a pirate. But I will tell you that I PW'd this morning, just finished cleaning my kitchen and now am taking a break.
Nothing much to see here.
Enjoy your Tuesday!
Lazing around. Achilles better. Going to chiro today. Can't think of a pirate phrase!
