Diet Coke and a pizza, please

Is it me? Is it an odor?

Recent Running Blog Posts is ignoring me. I keep sending them emails, asking them to add me to the list, but I get no response. This has been going on for almost a month. I am glad to have a listing at Running Blog Family Directory but I'd like my regular posts to reach a wider audience.

Which is to say, any.

I have been lulled by those who would suggest it is not necessary to warm-up before running, but that it is only necessary to stretch after running. This may be true - if you begin your run as a warm-up. Mika has a tendency to turn the start of your run into a race.

I have heard from my shins today for the first time in a long time. Watch it, dummy.

Weight: 168.5 lbs.
Stretches: yes (but not before, schmuck)

The great stretch debate will never be decided by agreement.

I stretch before when I'm sluggish, tight, and tired (and have time) but always after--it's my treat to myself.

The shins will keep barking if they don't get loosened. Hope you get some relief.

thats a real mix of music you obviously like variety. Out of your playlist I would be happy to listen to the Cure and the Damned . I don't think I know the last four songs.

I can't believe you are ignorant of the musical oeuvre of Puffy Amiyumi.

Seriously, however, "Friends Forever" was like, from the credits of the Scooby-Doo movie. I refuse to take credit for it being on my iPod.

I recently put together a mix of about 400 songs from 1970 to the present that have bpm I can run to. The 70s represent about 2% of that particular catalog.
