Holy crap. Less than three weeks.

My time here is Seattle is rapidly coming to a close. I actually haven't been running lately outside (I do intervals on the treadmill after doing weights at the gym) because I have been trying to squeeze in as much playing in the snow as possible before moving to Ireland!

Skate skiing surely has to be an adequate running replacement! Seriously, I find skate skiing to be way harder than running, both from a cardio standpoint and a muscle strength standpoint. Of course, I look as graceful as these skiers!

I do have one last trail race near Seattle before I head off. I am signed up for the 20 miler, but I think I shall be dropping back to the 5 miler. Weak! To answer Bertie's question - I'm actually stalled out at 55 minutes since I haven't been running. Tomorrow! I swear! If anything, I need to get a few more runs in my favorite places in Seattle before I go as well!

Ireland? Lucky duck. (That "d" should be an "f". Or "ph" - your choice.)

T-minus-how-long before Ireland?

C'mon, you don't really want to go to Ireland do you? I hear it rains all the time there.

In my opinion nothing is better than a run outdoor.
Good luck in your trail race.
And in Europe we are waiting for you!
You won't believe but the verification word is "Europa"!!!!!!

Sounds exciting that Ireland is drawing so close now. I have only very vague memories of Ireland since I was about 6 years old when I went there!

Good luck on your trail run!

So now less than one week - safe travels!

I wondered how long it would be b/4 someone came to the defense of the Garmin! I knew someone would.

Congrats. That someone was you! (But you know that already.)
