    I was addicted to the elliptical when trying to overcome the stages of grief after a tough point in life. I would get on that thing and just hammer for an hour. I agree that the sweat piles up even with a fan.

    For me it's the step machine. I can get on that thing for 10 minutes or 100 minutes and will be nothing but a puddle of disgusting stinky sweat when I am finished. I usually feel sorry for people who get on the one next to me.

    4 miles this morning. I had a late meeting last night, scarfed a triple bacon pretzel burger from Wendy's at 10pm, then woke up at 5am and had my fastest run in months. Felt great! Maybe I need to do this more often...

    At 5 a.m., the temperature was 33 degrees, and I ran 6 miles. If I lived in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, I could say "runnin' in da moonlight. You betcha!" Gorgeous moon! I really wanted to run more.

    5 miles Friday morning at 8:26 per mile, 2nd fastest run ever for me at that distance, at least according to RunKeeper.

    Saturday morning, the temperature was 29 degrees. 5 miles. A wool cap and gloves provided all the extra warmth I needed.

    16.4 that was supposed to be 20. This training cycle has been kinda heartbreaking. I am coming to grips with the reality that finishing NYC strongly is no longer the target. Simply finishing has become the goal.

    Sorry to hear SB. Maybe race day will surprise you when you have all those people around you.

    8.4 this morning. It was supposed to be 8 but I must have miscalculated my route and I ended up doing a little more by the time I got home.

    This is so true. I don't use the elliptical often but when I do I sweat like a mofo which is unusual on its own. Today however, was an absolutely perfect afternoon and I did about 4.5 miles in my new Asics. Felt great all around!

    Ran the SI half on Sunday in 1:25:28 - second half was much slower than the first and I had stomach issues from about mile 5 on.

    SB - As for NY - just feed off the energy - it's done wonders in pushing me along in the past.

    Thanks for the encouragement, fellas. My concern is that last year didn't go so well, and this year's training has been worse. I haven't been able to get to 20 miles, and now I'm into my taper. Debating whether to try again for 20 this weekend or just stick with the taper.

    you aren't the only one suffering of late, SB. I've been having ankle problems as a result of slipping and turning my ankle at work (yes, leather-soled shoes), and it just doesn't seem to be getting much better. I ran 10k on Saturday and I am supposed to start going out training with my club tonight... I think it's ligament damage.

    Five miles just before sunset yesterday. Hopefully we're in the last warm spell of fall. I'm ready for colder weather!!

    Sorry to hear that, Monkey.

    The return of Fueco! I second your call for the return of "real" Bay Area weather. If I wanted this balmy stuff, I'd live in SoCal.
