AHHH! where did you go? for a minute your blog was unavailable and I thought you changed yours to 'private'. And although I don't blame people who do change theirs to private, sometimes I think it may be a good option, but I was completely sad if you had!!! so YEAH you are back!!! you are one of my favorite people to check up on! Please don't ever go away ok? I feel like a Mom who just lost her child in a grocery store, , , so distraught at first, then when you find them you are so happy, but you tell them, "Please don't ever do that again!" :) :) :)

I checked out the Chicago marathon after your post, , , , I can see you being a Deena Kastor and going on to greatness!

amber - hahaha. my blog went away during a brief moment of technical difficulties. trying to re-post right now. i am not too savvy when it comes to trying to post something fancy.

From AmberG on Mon, Oct 12, 2009 at 14:18:59 from

Well, I'm just glad you're back :) You and Smooth are my personal Favorites, , , and now that Smooth is private I don't want to lose you too!!!

Looking forward to your 'fancy' post . . . . what is it? . . . .?

I better get off the computer soon though, my cute husband is out back doing yard work - - -I can see him through the window and I'm feeling a little guilty spending my time on the computer while he's working his tail off :) I'll check up on ya later!

From Smooth on Mon, Oct 12, 2009 at 14:29:44 from

allie, NICE run! Where's the fancy post?

Amber, you're too funny!

OK, I can totally see Allie being a Deena Kastor; and Amber being a Kara Goucher! You two are amazing runners and AWESOME GIRLS!

From AmberG on Mon, Oct 12, 2009 at 14:32:52 from


Wull hi! Can I say "Hi" to you on Allie's blog? I miss you, are you sure you want to be private?

I love both Deena and Kara, , , , but I definitely see Allie being a Deena! I'm excited for when she hits it big I'll say, , ,"ooh oooh, I know her! :)"

From Smooth on Mon, Oct 12, 2009 at 14:40:51 from

Amber, I miss you too. Can I say that on allie's blog? Yes, you can say what you want when you're private, right? Hehe!

You and Allie are already taking names! I already tell people...I know Allie and Amber! You're famous in the running community. My hubby gets you two mixed up though. I have to remind him who's up north and who lives down south. :) You girls are the Deena and Kara!!!!

From RAD on Mon, Oct 12, 2009 at 14:45:42 from

I can't wait for the day when I can say that 7:45 is a pleasant pace!

I'm with Smooth...Amber and Allie are the 'elites' of my world!

Favorite blog Fiddy? Has he even posted on your blog? ever? I'm not jealous.

From allie on Mon, Oct 12, 2009 at 20:13:53 from

amber & smooth: no fancy post. i gave up. i'll be taking some remedial computer literacy classes with the snowbirds next summer and then i will try again.

burt - i avoided the favorite blog list for 1.4 years because there is not a single blog on here that i don't find interesting in one way or another. everyone has a different story and running background...just too hard to narrow down. but fiddy made the list because:

a) his name is fiddy and it looks cool on my blog

b) he is cool and so having his blog on my favorite blog list makes me look cool

c) he is due for some breakthroughs---big breakthroughs, and when that happens i will look really cool having him on my blog

d) you see, it's all self-serving. the point of life is to appear cool. which is the whole reason for attending jr. figure out the point of life.

At least I can say I was your only friend on Athlinks for a while until Nan came along. I'll always have that.
