Hey all, I just got back from Japan about an hour ago.  In any case, I'm going to reply to a few threads in a few posts (I'm jetlagged as hell).

1.  LET'S JAM!!  TumTum gets in in  a few hours.  After that we'll talk it over and post.  We're looking at going out for sure before Thursday.

2.  Pioneer Press - that's pretty sweet.  Skinny, thanks for waiting for TumTum and I - that was kind of you, and it will be fun to take part.  We're around now, so it's all good.

3.  Should any of you find yourself in japan, the opportunities for running are awesome.  In addition, random story, I definitely taught some parkour "moves" to a member of the Japanese Defense Forces.  Good times.

Peace out,

Ryan

I'm up for RF again any time just let me know when and I'll let you know if I'm working or not.  And as for the 18th Skinny, I work until 12:30 that day so if you guys are going to be able to get to Menomonie around then we could head to Eau Claire and run for a bit before the actual XMA class.

Cities peeps.

TumTum and I and other cool roommate are thinking Wednesday Evening (9th?  I think).  Mostly because we'll all be around and it's the only day this week it's not supposed to rain/snow/be crappy weather.

Coffman Union, U of M, 6 PM.

Peace all

On the 18th I get done at 3, so yeah...We could run for a little bit, but I don't want to be tired for the class.

Well if you get done at 3 you'll probably be able to get to Menomonie around 4, which is when we'd have to leave to get to the class in time so we probably won't have any time to run around Eau Claire.  And that's fine cause like you said we don't want to be too worn out before the class.  If you're going to be coming with Johnny then we'll all just meet either at my appartment or at the karate studio and see if we can all fit in one car and head to Eau Claire.  Just give me a call when you guys get into town here and we can figure it all out.

Ok, I am ready again.  I will try to get to any jams that people throw out.  I will probably also just put out some "short notice" times of my own.

Jackal, I owe you a session  :P

I'm new... Looking to go out and run with some people and get the hang of things. I'm near northeast, but go through downtown, and the U of M almost everyday. If anyone is interested in running let me know. I would like to get more into the scene. Thanks
