1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Ran just under 10, froze my arse off.
    I didnt wear tights as I had planned on negative splits, 1/3 the way through I decided to run to the lake and do a few hill intervals. Got to the lake and took a few pics, froze my ass in the wind, and it started snowing.
    longest since June.
    Listened to:
    Budos Band II
    Budos Band III
    Part of "Our Love To Admire"-Interpol

    Next week we are supposed to hit below zero temps! Guess I will start preparing to be cold....

    8.2 last night
    14.5 today in 1:46:16.
    Ran mostly on trails which is a nice change of pace from my typical pavement pounding. Got muddy & had to climb up bluff - had an awesome time!

    3 miles, this morning, in a light snowfall. It was fun to see the shoe tracks of other early morn runners and the foot prints of the other critters who were out and about.

    ^^ man, you make the snow sound so nice. Too bad it's so damn cold.

    Today I didn't run but I pulled out the old jumprope for 15 minutes of rope-skipping to keep the calves engaged. Hadn't done this in over 10 years but it felt strangely productive and winded me pretty quickly. I think I have a new off-day routine.

    4.5 mile recovery run from my ball freezing run yesterday afternoon. Its sunny, not so cold, fresh layer of snow on the trails....too bad its going to be a winter nightmare over the weekend.

    5 miles, this morning. A great run the morning after the Red Wings' great victory over Les Habitants. (It is a tragedy that Detroit and Montreal meet so rarely. There was a sizable number of fans wearing the Canadiens jersey.) Getting ready for the Big Chill in Michigan Stadium--110,000+ at a collegiate hockey game. This afternoon, temps should climb to the mid 30s so it will be a mild Big Chill.

    Fugazi is really great running music!

    I also sometimes like Bolt Thrower.

    Today I will listen to Scriabin, Budos Band, Whitefield Bros, and Neko Case.

    I've been off and on with them, but I recently got The Argument and liked it a lot - then I picked up a couple of their live CD's which are raw but very energetic.

    ^ NYR, others, what headphones/earphones do you guys use while running? I need a pair that doesn't slip out of my ears constantly. Thanks!
