    @hamsterwheel6 So sorry to hear about your cousin. Covid-19 makes visiting loved ones impossible. There must be a better way!!

    @katharmonic AWESOME pics!

    @Camaramandy648 you are a beast! Those are some serious miles!!!

    Just 4 SLOW miles for me this morning.


    Noticed my ticker didn't update from my run on Saturday, so it is correct now.

    Happy Anniversary to @rheddmobile @PastorVincent @kgirlhart

    @InkedAtty57 hysterical - just add them up

    I think I’m the only person in the world who doesn’t like Brooks Ghost.

    @ABabilonia what a sweet dog. I’ll send you my little guy, he loves to run like 5 miles, then come home rest 10 minutes and go more. Ha ha I came home from the run today to a Pit Bull girlie on my front porch, I swear the word is out everyone should come to my house when lost. I called animal control and she had a chip so they were able to find her family woohoo. Meanwhile my neighbor says “she’s been running around for days” well you all why not HELP her.

    @ContraryMaryMary great job on the new 10 mile PB

    @marisap2010 I’m sure by the time I read all the posts I’ll read you are okay, keep my fingers crossed the COVID is negative and hope the headaches are gone soon

    @hamsterwheel6 I’m so sorry about your cousin, so young.

    @shanaber sorry about the PM issue

    @katharmonic the pictures are amazing!!!!

    Great mileage @AlphaHowls

    890.91/1000 miles for Run the Year Team Pavement Pounders

    I usually take Monday as a rest day,  but since my Anniversary is tomorrow I decided to run today instead. I have taken this week as a vacation week so I slept in a little but still got out early to beat the heat. I got out about a quarter to seven and it was 72°F. It was morne humid than yesterday,  but it felt worse yesterday. I had a nice 6.5 mile run and just enjoyed the morning.  Then I came home did a little yoga and went and got donuts. After that it was still such a nice morning I decided to take Ein, the corgi, to the park and we walked 1.6 miles. I left the two older dogs at home. It was only 83°F and I thought it was very pleasant for a walk but I thought it was still too hot for the two older dogs.

    @katharmonic I love your hiking pictures. I am so envious!


    2020 races:
    11/7/20: Run for 57th AHC Half Marathon

    @rheddmobile I think it is funny that the mockingbird picked up a squeaky chain sound and put it in it's repertoire.

    Sounds like everyone is doing great getting their runs in and healing where needed! :smiley:

    Thank you @Faebert and @quilteryoyo ! Just finished my daughter’s virtual pre-zoom-meeting ninth grade orientation before the actual virtual zoom orientation.

    She seems to be in a pretty positive mood about it. That’s a relief.

    My son’s new shoes came today! Woo hoo! One happy kiddo!

    Today is a rest day because my body needs it but it is soooooo boring! I’ve eaten so much!

    Still glad I have the rest days so i can prep the kids for the debacle that will be the school year which starts in seven days 😳🙄

    @Scott6255 @katharmonic @Teresa502 @ABabilonia me too on the Ghosts. I do put others in the rotation, but these fit me best. I may or may not have 3 new pairs in reserve on top of my closet...

    @PastorVincent good news on the negative test, and how cool about the shoes!

    Congrats on the PB @ContraryMaryMary !

    Happy Anniversary @rheddmobile and anyone I missed!

    @marisap2010 hope you feel better and get some good answers.

    I'm behind on the thread. Travel. Going for a run now :)
