I noticed that y'all military/law enforcement types referred to us as Females...but even when I was in the Navy I was always a lady...most of the time.

Hey folks. If you read Ranger's post about mixin' it up, I'm the GF that's been running him into the ground this past week. I gently coerced him into 8 miles Saturday, so he had a weekly mileage of 23 plus a short run yesterday.

As far as mixin' it up, I promise, I'll only wisk. No puree.

Don't worry Ranger, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger... Eventually you'll be man enough to say "no mas." Rolling Eyes

Well at least I got to break in the new Asics Gel-Cumulus V's

I now have 3 pair of running shoes, and I think I need one more pair so that I have all the running conditions covered.

I found out the hydration backpack would be good for trail races, but I am sticking to the fuel belt for the road stuff.

....and um Dan...I am a little worried...she is quite the task master when it comes to training/running... Sad

Oh BTW, Larry/"Brutal" said Hi (from sub 10). That guy alway's seems to be in the "thick of things"... Twisted Evil

Light weight trainers for everything ... keep it simple. Smile

Do I know Larry? Confused

OK, GF, no more flirting around the posts here! No beating around the bush. We need some vital statistics, such as:

1) Favorite shoes
2) Favorite running surface (no joke, some actually prefer asphalt over trails)
3) Favorite training distance
4) Favorite race distance
5) Best times

Oh, did I neglect to mention "Welcome Aboard" !! Thumbs Up Very Happy

Took in a light run in Salem, today with Dan. First time in six months. His place is really looking sharp. His audio-video system is second to none. Watched the pod race from Episode 1. I don't remember if I breathed or not.

Ranger, that's good!! You need someone to kick you out the door (and join you, too) when the weather turns.

Believe it or not, between the last time you were down here and today, I can only think of 3 or 4 times that I've actually run with anyone, and I've been running a steady 5-6 days a week that entire time. Surprised

Paul is too kind. I can point out several people's home theater setups that I studied from online which I can only hope to come close to, at least in terms of aesthetics. But for packing a punch, I'll put my system up against the best commercial theaters out there...

I enjoy running with people, but there are many times you are out there to accomplish something, and at those times it may be best to go it alone. If I want to run a certain pace with a certain recovery, that doesn't usually go with what others want to do.

I think you may, as he knows you. He moderates another technical running web site and brought up your name when I mentioned this one.

He's also they guy who's going to pick my fantasy T&F team for next year. Heh Heh Heh..... Twisted Evil

1) Favorite shoes - NB 1022's but I have a pair of Asics on order. I had a pair of Nike shocks that did my hip in. Evil or Very Mad

2) Favorite running surface (no joke, some actually prefer asphalt over trails) Asphalt. Yes...asphalt. I hate gravel in my shoes.

3) Favorite training distance I like it LONG AND SLOW. The most I've ever done is 13. I like Ten.

4) Favorite race distance 10k and up. Those are mostly about covering the distance, rather than speed for me.

5) Best times

1 mile - 7.54
5K - 28.01
4 miles - 34:sumpin
10K - 59.34
10 miles - 1:41
