Weeks 3 & 4 - Anyone? Anyone? clearly we’ve fallen off the blogging wagon these last two weeks, but who can blame us...Tahoe week, meetings, suspending kids, we’re a busy bunch.

In any event, I want to share a story about last Tuesday night’s relay workout. For those of you who weren’t there, the relay workout required each person on a three person team to run (in the case of the Kinks) 200 yards, then do calisthenics until their teammate showed up. Leslie and I teamed up with another woman (Patrice). To say the least, it was madness trying to find your teammate as she approached.

At one point...maybe lap 5 or 6 or so, I’ve done my 25 sit-ups (you had to know it wasn’t push-ups), and am waiting for Leslie to “tag” me so that I can run my 200 and “tag” Patrice, and I’m waiting, and waiting, and waiting, and then I’m a little worried (I know that Leslie hurt her knee at Tahoe), I’m about to take off without seeing her, then I hear her voice...laughing and having a joyful time. Turns out she’d been there awhile and


So I take off running...laughing the whole way.

In any event, here for your viewing pleasure is Paula Ann’s active recovery at Tahoe...

Round 1

Missed you all Saturday morning.


  1. We missed you too! The Saturday morning route was actually quite nice. I can't believe that I was able to run the entire time without getting bored or wanting to stop. When i went online to map it out, it was a total of 5.75 miles!! I can't decide what helped me push that last mile- Was it the old dude with a BUTT LOAD of change in his pocket, jingling all the way? Or was it the other dude (dressed all in black with a GREAT mustache) who was running like Phoebe on an episode of "Friends" and would not let me pass him?? Seriously- who knew runner's were so weird?

    I feel a lot better this morning, so hopefully whatever sinus crap that got me last week is gone and I can actually run the scheduled runs. Alice- your running partner is back!

  2. Go Leslie!! :)

    Who has this group picture? Can you send it to me? I'd like to make a copy.

  3. OK - I wasn't really flirting, just chatting up the guy who runs with a group at 6th and Laurel every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

    We missed you Cindi (and where was Cheryl??) on our long run. I was sooooo happy to reach 30 min and then turn around - did we really run that far?? I'm ready for the 10K - and going to see my sports massage lady today to work on those IT bands. Knee is better - especially when not running! See ya'll on Tuesday for more crazy practice.
