8 miles super early. -10F out. so i ran inside. averaged 7:45/mile.

PM: commute day 2 - survived. fixed my tail light in the process. it's all UHAUL's fault.

look how many ways KSL found to describe "polluted air"


i am looking forward to the various conditions over the next 5 days.

I'm sensing a pattern here. I can't quite put my foot on it. I wish I could read between the lines and pick up on any clues. I don't know. Something seems very familiar about your running lately.

allie: it's that you're averaging the same pace every day, right?

burt: don't listen to her; critical thinking skills are over-rated

so given the stencil doodle, and spiragraph pictures, i gather that you're drawing stuff while running now . . . impressive.

From Burt on Fri, Jan 08, 2010 at 15:53:16 from 206.19.214.144

Okay, I'm totally lost now. I almost had it. It should be as easy as 4+4. Think Burt!

From Nevels on Fri, Jan 08, 2010 at 15:56:41 from 131.204.15.93

i'm not so good with numbers, burt...

From Burt on Fri, Jan 08, 2010 at 15:58:04 from 206.19.214.144

Me neither. We may made a bad decision when it comes to careers.

From Nevels on Fri, Jan 08, 2010 at 16:05:44 from 131.204.15.93

nah... water flows down hill, and concrete fails in tension; that's all we need to know, right...?

From Burt on Fri, Jan 08, 2010 at 16:28:14 from 206.19.214.144

I repeat that to myself every day so I don't forget.

From Nevels on Fri, Jan 08, 2010 at 16:33:51 from 131.204.15.93

i keep it written on a post-it note in my office so that when i do forget it at night, it's right there waiting for me in the morning. all i have to do is keep it straight, so i don't go around saying that concrete flows downhill and water fails in tension...i think...

From JulieC on Fri, Jan 08, 2010 at 17:48:19 from 71.35.221.181

Oh my, critically thinking you all need help : DD 8x8=64. I always thought there should be 8 days in a week than 8 would easily put me over 60 for the week. But then I would have to minus Sunday and back under I go. Blah. Have fun artistes!!!

From Nevels on Fri, Jan 08, 2010 at 17:51:48 from 131.204.15.93

so you're saying that you listen to the Beatles song "8 Days a Week" while you run. Is that the pattern? Burt will love that...

From allie on Fri, Jan 08, 2010 at 17:56:49 from 98.202.24.36

i just found a pic of nevels. looks like he got caught in some downhill flowing water.

From allie on Fri, Jan 08, 2010 at 17:58:51 from 98.202.24.36

and here's a cute one of burt. this is why he can't think critically. he has other stuff on his mind.

and this is what you could have been if you would have chosen a different career path:

That was from one of the stream crossings in the Sweetwater 50k. Oddly enough, it was also my senior portrait...

From Burt on Fri, Jan 08, 2010 at 18:24:37 from 206.19.214.144

That's my favorite tu tu.

From ChrisM on Sun, Jan 10, 2010 at 15:22:05 from 86.148.153.116

I am loving the 8 feel!

I had a similar fascination with 7 and then 9 miles per day, alas I got bored of them so I'm giving 10 a try

From allie on Sun, Jan 10, 2010 at 15:40:51 from 98.202.24.36

chris - yes, 8 is getting boring. i am just trying to build a consistent base before getting back into serious training. i haven't been running much since early november, so i am trying to gradually bring back the mileage without developing some random injury (i seem to be really good at that).

From Samantha Dean-Howard on Sun, Jan 10, 2010 at 15:53:57 from 90.201.147.218

He he I like 8, but my fav is 9 like Chris, and recently I have been alternating with 9 and 10 just for something different :-)

Allie I get random injuries all the time LOL

From Smooth on Sun, Jan 10, 2010 at 16:03:38 from 174.23.217.47

Ask any Chinese what 8 means and they'll tell ya...LUCKY, FAST, PROSPEROUS!!!

Remember the Summer Olympics in Beijing? It opened on 8/8/2008 at 8!
