  1. This will be my last big week of training before I taper for Fall 50. Planning to hit 70-80 miles. I was planning on going 25/12 this weekend, but what kind of pooosay stops at 25 miles? So I planned a pretty sweet 26.2-mile route that starts at my house and ends at the lakefront in downtown Milwaukee. Would be great if I could find someone dumb enough to run it with me, but I'm also perfectly fine going it solo. Temps should be in the upper 30s when I start, so I'm pretty stoked about that. Right now, long-term forecast calling for race day temps between 42-53°, in which case I'm definitely a "go." Also, Packers are 3-0 and looking like legit Super Bowl contenders, Brewers snuck into the playoffs, both of my fantasy teams are 3-0, and most importantly, wife is doing well at almost 28 weeks pregnant. Life is good.
  2. Funny, I also decided to forget the off day....to enjoy the first day of non-summer weather.
  3. I’m out for this one. Still planning on doing Fall 50 in October, so while I am starting to add back “quality,” my near-term focus is going to be on mileage, not speed.
  4. So did I miss anything good? Nice to see @wraith5 posting again. Hopefully he sticks around!
  5. That’s true of almost any endurance sport, though.
  6. C'mon. Are you saying that a guy can't reasonably foresee that ignoring orders from officers with drawn guns and then reaching into the car to grab something might end badly for him?
  7. When I'm out for a run, I have the right to cross an intersection when I have a "walk" signal, too. But when there's a car that's not slowing down and might very well choose not to stop for the red light, it's in my best interest to not exercise that right. And that doesn't change no matter how many times we remind drivers that they need to always stop for red lights.
  8. I agree, the suspicion that he may reach for something isn't justification. But if he DID actually reach for something, then yes, it is.
  9. If they told him to stop, and if he continued to reach under the seat for something that could have very likely been a gun (especially knowing his history), then yes, it was justified. Hell, for all we know, he might have even threatened to shoot the cops on his way to the car. But again, shame on these cops for not taking him to the ground beforehand so that he never had the chance. I did read somewhere this morning that they'd tazed him beforehand and that he just got up and kept walking to the car. But I don't know if that's true or not.
  10. Seeing conflicting info now from verified Twitter accounts. Not sure what to believe.
  11. Reading on Twitter that the guy who was shot has a history of gun-related offenses and has a current arrest warrant for sexual assault and domestic violence. If the cops knew who he was, it might at least help explain the aggressive attitude. And there’s probably a pretty good chance that there was a gun in the vehicle.
  12. I agree with this, too. But even though he didn’t, they could’ve easily prevented this from getting to the point where he even had an opportunity to potentially retrieve a weapon.
  13. This. I’m a big “back the blue” guy, but unfortunately they really screwed the pooch on this one.
