| O-T Lounge|| Running early am vs mid am - Question for experienced runners/physiologists - Spirit of Dunson on 11/14/14 at 12:07 pm|
I run 4-5 days a week and almost always at 4:30-5:00 am. Typical runs are 5-10 miles.
Occasionally when I have the chance to run mid morning, say 9:00, I find that I feel 10x better and easily drop 30 sec off my pace.
Is it just better blood flow? Warmer muscles? Something else? ...

Long time member, first time serious help board poster.
I used to never get popups on this great site. Now that I have moved to Europe, i get some random popup ads and whatnot (nothing with sound, though). I am using the same tablet I have always used which is why I am confused.

Going to a public viewing in Mannheim to watch the match. Pretty stoked to watch it with locals and party afterwards.

I have Engineered hardwood floors in my house - installed about 3 years ago.
Wood sub-floor, and the top floor is glued down to the subfloor (not floating).

| Tiger Rant|| Serious question about student attendance - Spirit of Dunson on 10/24/13 at 3:42 pm|
Does anyone know how many tickets they are allotted? Do we have any actual numbers on what the attendance is?
I always assumed that their stands look emptier since the students crowd down into the lower section. At least that was the case when I was there all those years ago.
I was just curiou...

My wife and I file our taxes jointly, and our AGI is at a point where we cannot contribute to a Roth IRA. We are also beyond the limit where we can qualify for traditional IRA tax deductions.
However, there is no AGI limit on traditional IRA contributions.
So, should we still contribute to a t...
| O-T Lounge|| Help me spec a tablet - thanks, OT! - Spirit of Dunson on 5/16/13 at 9:38 am|
I would like a new tablet - mostly for reading and surfing the net. Unfortunately, I don't follow this technology very much, so don't know what is out there for me. So, I come to the OT for its crowd-sourcing wisdom.
Ideally, it would have a USB port to upload my garmin info and whatnot.
