      Nice run-mute today and good luck on the trip back to work tomorrow. I assume you've got a place to clean up nearby. That's an awesome perk. I hope things feel better and the cyclist will be okay. Stay alert everyone.

      Good call Morey. Sorry to hear about the Achilles flair up. I hope it passes in just a few days. Those new shoes need to get some miles on them. Take it easy and continue to play it smart.

      Very nice. In my running days, I found I could get right around 600 miles on a pair of shoes. They still looked good but they were broken down as my shins would begin to hurt. This was my tell-tale sign that it was time to change shoes. Hope these work out for you!

      @Ann- There were water stops at 2, 4, 6 and 7 mi. The 2mi gave me a one cup splash. the 4mi a 2 cup splash- that was pretty good. it was the 6mi folks that hit me with 2 on the front, one on the side and another on the back. I was good and doused at that point. Not sure if the 7mi team nailed me with ice water or not. I don't think I asked.
