Thursday 2-26-09

Gray skies and a threat of rain did nothing to keep our faithful away from our run this evening. Over 70 runners ran with us through the historic neighborhoods in midtown Tulsa. It was a record high 81 degrees today....warm enough to make our usual Siberian cold front this Saturday morning seem all the worse.Our group is getting bigger and bigger. The store was was almost impossible to get in the door!

The Bunny slipper(s) was passed on from Sandra to Tatur Dave. TD was cited for his expertise in course design. Seems Sandra must like hills. (I'll pat Tatur Dave on the back as well though. Hill running has made us all stronger runners. Seems there is not near the complaining there used to be. Those measly hills in the Route 66 Marathon will be a breeze this November.)

Kim was given recognition for her weekend endeavor. Kim is running her 1st 50K this Saturday in Ft Worth. That's 31 miles for those of you who are metrically challenged. Then the NEXT DAY, on Sunday, she is running ANOTHER 50K!!! Make that 62 miles in something like 32 hours!! I know, maybe we should wait for the back slapping until she pulls it off, but I think it is as good as done. Kim has done her training, and has the spunk to pull it off. We're all pulling for you, Kim!

A coupla new faces this evening....Amanda ran with us for the first time. She was a swimmer in college, and now wants to sharpen her running skills. (Sounds like a triathlete in the making.)

Not a new face, but an old face....nope, that didn't sound right....make it an old, that sounded kind of mean too. It's Johnny Spriggs, president of the Tulsa Running Club, who brought a couple of people to run with our group tonight. Johnny is an old friend (there I go with that OLD theme again!) who has ran a few marathons in his time. This whipper snapper has racked up over 100 marathons, and will run the AOK 50K with quite a few Taturs this Sunday.

Another few visitors tonight....Boomer made a triumphant return!

Did not get Kim's dog's name. A cute guy though!

Jason and Malibu. (Jason is the one with the yellow singlet.)

It was nice to work up a good sweat tonight. Winter is almost gone. (Ok, Saturday I will have to eat these words!)

Upon returning, I thought I would take a few pics of tats. Can you identify whose ink is pictured?

Here's another

This one might be a little tougher, since it's a new tattoo.Let's hear your guesses!!

The first one is Jason. The last one is Ken or someone who loves Ken (which could be Ken, again).

I am so far behind. I think we may be getting this hospital thing behind us. I am going to run in the morning and see what I can muster. Good thing I am only in the beginner half group. Hope to see you on Sat-brrr-day.

I enjoyed walking with Sandra, Boca & Railey.
Awesome Tats and I won't say whose they belong too because I was there when the pics were taken. I know the Ken Tatoo might have been on Bobby's leg LOL.

The first two are Jason. I don't know who on this earth would love Ken...I am stumped.
