dyk, I was told that I overpronante - and I probably do

dyk, I think I'm technically wearing the wrong shoes for my gait, but they feel good and I don't have pain after running a half (my fitted shoes caused my left toes to hurt after 4 or so miles)

dyk, the shoes I should be wearing are more stabalizing, which is why they are heavy - right now I'm wearing shoes that are closer to neutral and from everything I've read that's common for people that are not severly overpronators

dyk, but I feel best in lighter, flatter shoes - my half PR was in a pair that has a very small difference in the toe/heel height

dyk, I can really ramble about running shoes
Past Races:
-Boston Run to Remember Half Marathon, 5/29/11 (2:35:11, no training!)
-Corporate Run, 3.5 miles 6/2/11 (36:38, 4 days after running the half!)
-BAA 10k, 6/26/11 (1:04:52, wanted to be under an hour...)
-Tavern to Tavern

dyk, 24 weeks is 6 months

dyk, I'm lucky if I run 24 times in 6 months

dyk, I got professionally fitted for running shoes...spent $130 on shoes I wore only a hanful of times. I typically ran slower whenever I had them on, they are to heavy for my feet

dyk, I felt like the guy didn't want to helpe, I should have walked away but I didn't. The shoes felt fine at first and I was probably to rushed to make a good choice.

DYK epecially since the bill for the first month is TWICE what it should be.

DYK and I'm supposed to get a $200 Gift Card for switching that they aren't sure about now.

DYK luckily I printed out the order I placed online that showed my rates and the promotions that I was supposed to get.

DYK even after explaining the whole saga to her.

DYK I called the escalations department that I dealt with after the FCC complaint.
DYK girl there gave me a number to call to have them issue a new "ticket"
DYK 48 hours and I'm going to file another FCC complaint

DYK so I opened my statement online today and they have the billing all jacked up
DYK I called the 800 number and the chick I was dealing with did a bunch of checking and since my phone wasn't active for the first month I wasn't "eligible for the promotional rate"

DYK AT&T and Insight/Comcast finally got my phone number to port over so our home phone works again
DYK only took them 31 days....and about 15 hours of my life on the phone with them
DYK and it took filing a complaint with the FCC to get them moving.

dyk, no matter where I am, OCM/BPM is torture

dyk, however, at least here the thought process of the people in Business Procedure Management accepts the fact that we are Subject Matter Experts

dyk, one of the guys just said that we could remove some items because of 'inherent controls'

dyk, that never would have/will happen at the psych ward

dyk, I have the distinct feeling that by actually training you will do better than I usually do

dyk, I'm okay with that :-)
