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

    ...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....

    At this point I am including all "maybes" on the list.

    Princess Half 2010

    Disneyland Half

    San Antonio Rock n Roll 2010

    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!

    Here's my best guess as to the 'Ohana Race Schedules 2010. Check it out & send me any corrections or updates.

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

    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 :)

    You pack up and leave and move to a new home. :scared1::lmao:

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

    No, really thank you very much for the warm welcome. :grouphug: 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. :hug: 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. :confused3 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! ;):thumbsup2:goodvibes

    Good Night, Cousins! Gotta hit the hay if I'm getting up at 4:30...:scared1:

    Oh my goodness - Earth: Final Conflict - it has been a while. My but that was a strange show. I definitely remember the Taelons, at least. And that ******* - uh, make that jerk-face, Z'or!

    John - what a great screen name story! And how could I have forgotten Glee? And Mythbusters? Family favorites, both over here. :thumbsup2

    Mel - you have a good point about the Minnie. I totally miss that race too. And nutella. Mmmm. You have a good point about that one too. I had been assuming the winged lion-goat thing, I have to admit - I figured you were a classics geek as well. I didn't know it was a term in molecular biology! Pretty cool in all directions!

    Sandy! So glad you made it to the new thread! I am so glad you changed your name to something more YOU! You don't strike me as an Eeyore at all! LOVE the 3-2-1--GO!!! aspect of your name, too!

    Allie - so great to see you over here as well! I am sorry about the loss of your previous team, but am so glad that it means we get to know you better. :hug: Please do add in a Team Ohana clippie when you're ready, but I think we'd all understand if you wanted to hold onto your Buzz, too. :hug:

    Aloha! I am hoping to join Team 'Ohana and wanted to introduce myself. :)

    Day Job: Housewife / Work at Home Freelancer / Aspiring Teacher (I'm certified, but thanks to the economy still looking to land my first teaching job.)
    Family: My husband of one and a half years, Jeremy. We also have three cats and two rabbits.
    Location: Georgia
    Favorite race you ever ran: I'm totally new to this running thing!
    Best recovery food or beverage: ^ As I said, totally new to running, just been drinking water.
    TV Shows you watch or have loved: Stargate Atlantis is by far my favorite - I still miss it. :( I also loved the Aladdin tv series (my favorite Disney movie). Current shows I watch include House, Stargate Universe, Mythbusters, What Not to Wear, Glee, Biggest Loser, and pretty much anything on Food Network (especially if it has Bobby Flay!).
    Races Planned this year: My first race ever will be the Princess Royal Family 5K on March 6. I have the ultimate goal of completing a half marathon this year, but nothing planned yet.
    Meaning of DIS screen name: Mine's probably pretty self explanatory, but ... I love dole whips! Last time I went to WDW, I used all but one of my snack credits on dole whips. And I regretted getting that ice cream instead of a dole whip the moment I took the first bite! :lmao:

    I look forward to getting to know everybody! Hopefully I've passed all of the tests (including a love of scifi ;) ).
