    Since that isn't an atomic bomb going off, you're going to have a great day. If it is a bomb, your day will be very short, with no pain. So there's no downside. Get on with it!

    Anything can happen today. It might not be "your" day, but you'll never know unless you get out there and make it happen.

    If you get started now, you won't have to weave through the people who haven't woken up yet.

    There might be a predator just over that horizon, waiting for the sun to light up some sleeping breakfast.

    If you're looking at this and thinking about everything you did today with satisfaction, then life is good. If you know you could have done something better, you're still learning. If you're wondering where the day went you need to get your ass in gear sooner.

    It's a new day, bright with possibilities. Now get up and run faster than the predator that wants you for breakfast. Some predators go on 2 legs.

    Nobody but you has ever seen a sunrise quite like this. That doesn't make you special, it makes the sunrise special. Get over it.

    Today will be a day unlike any you've ever had. Or it could be, if only you'd kick yourself out of your rut and see what's important.

    That sun coming up that's brightening up the day? It's a candle compared to what your mind can do.

    You have just enough time to shag the one you're with with. But hurry, the tent will be getting really warm, really soon.

    With any luck at all you are not staked out in the desert naked. So the sunrise is a good thing.

  19. Ok, that's enough of that. Part 2 looks complicated. What were the instructions again?

  20. Wow, I hope Keith doesn't live in South Africa. That'll cost me.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh Keith, Keith, Keith, it's about quality not quantity (Okay maybe quantity helps too.) Here is my best shot:
    Part 1,
    "Q it's 4:30 in the morning and freakin cold outside! Go back to BED!"

  22. One of my favorite running slogans by others is : It's You vs. You

    ReplyDelete
  23. My other favorite running slogan is "Who Fartlekd?"

    (Okay it's 10:20 at night and past my bedtime, I'm scared to discover what I've been writing. Better head over to FB where I'm safe...hee hee. Gnight."

  24. "Slow and steady will with the race, except in a real race."

  26. Part 1: And then you hear it. That whisper. The one that says, "Go! Chase the light!"

  27. Slogan? It's not a runner's one. It's yoda. "There is no try. Only do."

    ReplyDelete
  28. Beastie Boys. I mean, seriously. There is no contest there.

    ReplyDelete
  29. My slogan is my mantra: If it was easy, everyone would do it.

    At the end of the day, you'll never regret a run, but you will regret it if you don't run

  36. Following you, and BQorDie.
    Also Keith is a showoff, and is obviously not training enough :P

    ReplyDelete
  37. Forget the FOLGERS! The BEST PART OF WAKING UP is a GOIN 4 a RUN!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Part 2:
    Beastie Boys for running
    Pearl Jam for driving around the city
    Kenny Chesney for drinking on the beach

    What? I'm supposed to actually CHOOSE?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Sunrise. Sunset. Swiftly go the miles. One foot following another...

    (you have to know Fiddler on the roof)

  40. Favorite slogan- Finishing=winning!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think I saw a Garmin up for grabs but it closed quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  42. None really but if I had to choose - Chesny.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Part 2:
    5323 - the haybales
    or the first lightning one -- very cool. Wish I had a good camera/ the skillz to use one!

  48. I'm a follower (wait, that doesn't sound right!)

  49. I had to look up Kenny Chesney - my youngest listens to him but he's not on my iPod. Beastie Boys crack me up, but I know all the words to all the songs on Ten, so Pearl Jam wins hands down.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I haven't been around the blogging world long, so the coolest prize I've seen (at least to me) was that butt-ton of Gu you won recently from Melanie McQuade. That's like a year's supply or something!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Current favorite slogan is Trish Parrell's FB pic. "The only one who can tell you you can't is you. And you don't have to listen." Mike

    ReplyDelete
  52. Favorite pics: this was hard, and I simply love your sunsets, but my favorite ultimately is the storm pic IMG_5611a you posted 10/28/10

  54. Re: best blog contest... I haven't been following much until recently, but SteveinaSpeedo has a really fun contest going on for a ton of swag, I think it's sunglasses, road ID, etc...
    Entries were in the form of 'dancing on your bike'

  55. "Pearl Jam, Kenny Chesney or Beastie Boys? +1 Entry"
    Frankly, I was baffled. I've been baffled a couple of days now, but not so interested in my bafflement that I would look them up in "the google" as one recently elected US official said recently. I'm guessing Pearl Jam would be a bit crunchy on my toast and so not good for my teeth. Maybe Ken is the owner of Chesney Hardware store? Are the Beastie Boys a support group for those dealing with weird practices?

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm back!! Sorry for the lack of comments.

    Ok.... Time to think of a slogan....

    ReplyDelete
  57. Part 1: This is long, but it was the first thing I thought of:

    Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Part 1:

    The sunlight traveled millions of miles to greet you in the morning. Running 3 miles to greet it is the least you can do.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Part 2:
    I follow both you yahoos.
    Best contest: Steve in a speedo DOES have a lot of good ones
    Beastie boys all the way

    ReplyDelete
  60. I am not feeling very creative at this moment so I will go with part two!
    Pearl Jam....then beastie boys. Skip Kenny and replace him with old skool Randy Travis or Kenny Rodgers before his face got weird :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I follow you and now follow bqordie as well.
    I also posted this to my blogs sidebar just so you know :)
    I need to get a picture of me wearing my cool kids shirt. I do wear it often :)

  62. I love the photo you took recently of the lake at the foot of the mountains. It was the post before your race in Banff.
