"There's only one hard and fast rule in running: sometimes you have to run one hard and fast."

We interrupt this program...

I'm sick. I think I'll take a break from the blog for a few days. I may shrug off a broken bone or two, but I'm a real whiner when I'm sick and you don't need to hear about it. As for training: I can't run, but I'm walking - on Saturday, I walked 18 miles in 4:15. That's a whole 'nother kind of sick.

Wish I'd been at the Wild Duluth races. Some on my blogroll who finished: Wynn, Julie, Lisa, Holly, Karen, Bill and Wayne. Looks like I missed another opportunity to meet Alicia Hudleson as well. Surprisingly, I don't see any bloggers who did the half-marathon in Nerstrand; it's a very popular race. The results for the Run for the Apples in White Bear Lake aren't up yet, but I can't help but wonder if I could've done well - if I had been well.

Get well... wondering why you were hiking 18 miles in 4 something (don't think I ran it that fast!!).

Missed you out there - would have topped - well maybe - the bagpiper near the finish ;->

it was a great day for the debut Wild Duluth races!

Don said...

That's a mighty sprightly walk. Be well soon.

Chippewa said...

damn, impressive walk! You must have been chomping at the bit to actually run.

alka-seltzer time!

Beth said...

Hope you are well again soon.

Ohhhhh... I'm too sick to do anything but complain - and read other people's blogs. You don't know you have tonsils, sinuses or eustachian tubes until they're sore. Viruses and bacteria, both.

Second Least Important Site in Teh World?

Way to shoot the moon, SteveQ.

Still, I'll take it - if you throw in a set of Ginsu Knives and you make Dr. Nic's site TEH LEAST IMPORTANT SITE IN TEH UNIVERSE!1! (You must include the "!1!" or NO DEAL!)

This is NOT a negotiation!1! Those are my terms. Take 'em or leave 'em.

By the way ... 3 days between posts?

Way to phone it in.

Go Phillies!

O ... one more condition:

Make "Make Dr. Nic's site TEH LEAST IMPORTANT SITE IN TEH UNIVERSE!1!" an option in your poll.

I'm interested to see how many people agree with my assessment of his blog.

SteveQ said...

Good news - the fever broke and I no longer think I'm never going to be well again. Hoping the deafness is temporary.

I'm well enough to enjoy the irony of having Caitlin Smith visit and then Glaven. Can't imagine those two have much in common!

Glaven Q. Heisenberg said...

Then there was this, which was "related" to that second site you sent me.

What was I thinking? This is the Interwebs! I should've given joyRuN WAAAAAAY bigger t*ts than i did. I probably insulted her.

Luckily, the ones I gave her are big enough that she now lacks the mental capacity to understand the insult.

How's this for irony? Would it surprise you to know that, in fact, Caitlin Smith and I have been PASSIONATE LOVERS for years now?

Well make room, because you're not the only one who's surprised to learn that. I'm betting Caitlin is, too. So there's irony piled atop more irony.

SteveQ said...

Ummmm. For those new here, pay no attention to the man in the Glaven costume. And DON'T click the link.

So much for trying to stay classy here.

Glaven Q. Heisenberg said...

O, classy, is it?

I'm sorry. I mistook this place for SteveQ's blog.

Extend pinky.
