A special thanks to Debra, for all her hard work for Team 'Ohana these last two years!!!

...and a special wish that I don't make too big a mess over trying to do just part of that work over the near future....

Whoo hoo, I get to christen a new thread with my lovely presence! Where's the champagne?



I know we're not tracking miles & minutes as a team, but if anyone would like to track them for themselves, I've modified last year's Google Docs spreadsheet. You can input your numbers, and it will add things up for you every month. (I don't think I'll use it, as I've figured out I'm a paper & pen kind of person.)

Anyway, here's the link for access to the Team 'Ohana 2010 Tracking. Remember, it's just for your personal benefit, not a challenge!

Paying the price of my admission......

Just kidding!
In fact, I can, but I'll have to say that the Cardassians were the best bad guys.

FFigawi is my Hash name. For those who don't know, the Hash House Harriers are a group of running and drinking clubs all over the world started in Kuala Lumpur back in the 1930s by some British expats. After going on a number of runs and/or doing something stupid/memorable, you get a name. Mine comes from two things: 1) I grew up sailing in New England and raced in the Figawi race a few times. The race gets its name from the ever-present fog that cause the skippers and crews to frequently wonder "where the f*&% are we?" 2) on one of the trails I set for the Hash when living overseas, several of the people following it got confused and again wondered "where the f*&% are we?" Combine the two stories and FFigawi seemed like a great name for me. Why the people naming me added the extra F is beyond me.

And now for my intro.....

Name: John
Day Job: Controller
Family: Me, my wife, four dogs, and a new puppy who arrived today and is not at all happy about being in a crate right now
Location: Houston
Favorite race you ever ran: This one's a three-way tie between my first marathon (Richmond 2005), my first ultra (Rocky Raccoon 2006), and my first Goofy (2010)
Best recovery food or beverage: Guiness
TV Shows you watch or have loved: Currently set to Tivo - 24, Mythbusters, Modern Family, Glee, Real World, 30 on 30 (ESPN's sports documentaries), Celebrity Rehab yes, I love white trash reality TV
Favorites from the past - MASH, X-Files, Cheers, DS9 (sorry Maria, but I thought it was a great series), The Shield
Races Planned this year:
Rodeo Run 10k
Texas Independence Relay (maybe)
Seabrook Lucky Trail Half
Disneyland Half (got to get that Coast to Coast medal)
Richmond marathon (or San Antonio marathon)
Texas Trail Run 50k
Goofy 2011
Meaning of DIS screen name: see above

Oooooo I love the fresh smell of a new thread

I don't have time for the questions fight now, but wanted to get a post in to welcome our new cousins.

I'll be back after I recover from my long work day.

Wow, what a way to welcome a girl......

You pack up and leave and move to a new home.

Good thing I'm resourceful. Oh, and Richard left bread crumbs. Thank you very much!

No, really thank you very much for the warm welcome. I love the Buzzies because that was my first team (and I need to change my siggy), but it's not what it used to be, and Jackie I really missed you too. Although, sometimes you just need a kick in the pants to get going again, so I'm feeling a little sore on the backside now. We weren't a very chatty group,on the Buzzies, and I tend to be a chatty person, although I come and go 'cause sometimes LTO and there's nothing you can do about it. I know quite a few of you, so I feel like this is a good place to jump in.....soooooooo SPLASH!!!!

Ok, this spot is reserved for my intro. to be filled in later. - See page 4

Chimera were also a race from Earth:Final Conflict -- Another Gene Roddenberry series. Honestly, Mel, that's where I thought it came from! Anyone remember that show? With the Taelons, the Jaridians and Liam?

I'll do my intro tomorrow, just had to post my sci fi observation...

Cardassians -- one of the few tolerable things about DS9 for me...John can stay!

Good Night, Cousins! Gotta hit the hay if I'm getting up at 4:30...
