    Have I posted here about my guinea pigs yet? We got Cookie in September. We were told that guinea pigs are social and prefer not to live alone. It took a little while but we got Evie on New Year's Eve (didn't want to do Christmas because of all the other stuff going on). I now have two "girls" to spoil .

    Hmm, tried to upload a picture but I can't make it work. You'll just have to trust me that they are very cute.

    I have changed my avatar. Cookie is the larger one on the left, Evie is the smaller one on the right.

    Running today after three days off because of some knee pain. About 10 weeks into training for a marathon. If the pain persists today, I'll be shutting it down completely

    I need to lose 5 more lbs. before I start running again. I worry about joints as I've had issues in the past with my knees.

    I need to lose about 30 pounds, and something needs to be chasing me before I start running again.

    Do you run with those bands just below the knee? I don't know what they are called but they work for me.

    Once upon a time I did.

    I've had two surgeries on my right knee (ACL, Meniscus), but it's my left knee that is bothering me this time. Attended a hot yoga class with a friend a couple weeks back a tweaked something. Went out for a 3 mile run at lunch and it's better, but still not 100%. Going to take 10 days - 2 weeks off.

    Uhhhohhhh. I was once like you, dear luburch, also had the meniscus snaparoosky. I'm sure you used arch supports, braces and bands, etc. I did way too much jumping and running and kick boxing and assorted cuckoo things and suffered mightily...then it was both knees replaced at a young age. Apparently the Irish genes aren't the best for knees.

    Good luck my friend.

    Left ACL (twice) for this Irishman. First time in a 3 on 3 bball tourney at a family reunion (I might take things too seriously), second time about 8 months later after my buddy stroked my ego and told me his flag football team needed a WR1.

    I don't think I've run more than a mile at a time since high school, so kudos to you, luburch. Hope the knee feels better.

    As the snow continues to fall and the branches get more and more snow on them, I'm beginning to rethink my walk to work today.

    Of course!

    Took the longer way home and walked in the road since sidewalks have the street plowing cast offs. Driveway shoveled and turned on t.v. for the game and am getting a bonus.

    Had to watch the game in a pizza parlor inside a casino. I was the only Duke fan there.

    Well, if you don't want to drink juice for three days, there are other quaffables! (Ymm, Bourbon or Ymm, Beer being two obvious go-tos. Ymm, Single Malt should be there, too!)

    That would be a three day coma for me. Holy moly.
