      hellz yeah! Just wait till you run NYC. Make sure you wear the medal the rest of the day and the next day walking around town. I got a couple free drinks from bars and lots of high fives from the New Yorkers.

      Is this the "if you want to look tall stand next to short people" approach to fitness? Because you would be an Olympian by comparison. I had no idea about Iceman - I just googled it. What is up with that? BTW - Farley may have been overweight, but the dude could move. Could you imagine if he'd lost all that weight what he might have been able to accomplish?

      200 miles in a month! Awesome. Great job Morey. I should look at my total, I haven't lately since I know I'm down from last year. NYC won't run itself, that's true. But it's so crowded you might be able to body surf it if you aren't able to run it. It's like 3 months away now, right? It'll be awesome, I hope you have a great race that day.

      Nicely done Morey. Sounds like a good run to start your day. Nice and cool, varied terrain, and some major climbing. Glad your legs felt better today, hope they feel good after this run as well.

      I try to be in bed by 9pm if I need to wake up at 4:30. 6-1/2hrs just isn't enough. especially not when trying to keep up with 50+mpw. I've heard it said... you must add 1min of sleep per night, for every mile you run a week. Sounds about right.

      I may run like a girl then, since I like to talk when running with others. And considering how many fast running women there are, I think I'm doing them a dis-service by my statement. Sounds like you had a good time though.
