Mmmmm yes, but it is so odd to be running with people who aren't screaming, "Ahhhhhhh please don't kill me."

I used to go hear the Red Dogs rock out at the Red Dog Inn (now Liberty Hall).

attorney and nurse. How does that work?

I know several people who are attorneys and nurses -- they often act as consultants in malpractice cases, for example. I know other nurses and doctors who have dual degrees in nursing along with MBAs or Health Care Administration or Public Health.

Yes! It's a good workout but the sense of community that comes with sweating with a portion of Lawrence is the best. "Encourage everyone, those larger and smaller and those with skinny legs. No headphones or cell phones. " Red Dog became a leader in community health long before it became fashionable. The sickest part for me is that I miss running the stadium stairs.

Very well said. I didn't think I would stick to it but I have and dreads when winter is here and I can't attend. I take my kids and my youngest has been going since he was little. I'm one of the stroller moms but hoping he will run with me a little more. He loves it when we do the stairs and I love how I have helped him see working out can be fun. I so agree about the sense of community. I have made many friends there and can't wait for summer workouts! I'm with you on the running the stadium stairs......and I thought I was the only one.

Try hunting with an Abyssinian wire-haired tripe hound.

No, but I saw the kids on South Park play "red rocket" one time. I woudn't want to take part in anything like that.
