@xavendano yes it does!After an hour at the dog park I felt inspired and snuck in an extra 212 words on Chapter 11. That's 1500 for the day! WIN! \o/an inspiring exchange with a new twitter friend helps me give myself permission to call it a successful day :) Thanks @megging!@mbrownsen that was a very nice tweet :)@kingreza @jafarimoh lol!"If only writing a book were as easy as writing tweets." - said the procrastinating tweeter.@avantgame Just installed #SuperBetter on my phone and it's making me teary-eyed with the mental "bad guys". Weird, but in a good way. Thx
Retweeted by Jane McGonigalI cannot stop laughing. @kiyash is trying to explain he is not bleeding FROM the nipples, like it's not blood pouring from them. hahahahahaBest AM phone call, from @Kiyash's dad: "Hello, I saw some photos of you running and noticed your nipples were bleeding, is this NORMAL?"#SuperBetter just reminded me to do something healthy, so I'm going for a walk. This app is great on my phone. @avantgame, you're awesome.

@FeveringNinja You should be able to pick it up and keep it with you after a few weeks or even months. hopefully that was true for you!@FeveringNinja However.... SuperBetter is not something you're meant to play forever using an app or website anyway! It's a way of thinking@FeveringNinja Well, it is available on Android. :)@trina_tj those are very kind words. Thank you!! :)@trina_tj @glenrosefdn congratulations!

Retweeted by Jane McGonigal@G33kGrrly thanks! definitey the most relaxed I've felt running a half in 2.5 years I think!@dine_and_dash that's a relief!!! :) I hope you don't mind if I ask you a million questions when we go hiking next weekend!! :)@dine_and_dash basically I don't think we can do a 3 wk taper it would be more like a 2 week one. if we are planning to run/walk could work?@dine_and_dash ...run 14-16 days before the race instead of 3 weeks out? i don't think we can do 20 miles in hawaii b/c heat, humidity@dine_and_dash I have a running advice Q for you since you are the most experienced marathoner I know! is it possible to do the 20 mile...@dine_and_dash last month at SF i think the sun slowed a lot of folks down in the second hald and no one seemed very happy at the finish!!!@dine_and_dash I think a lot of people had very fast times and it made everyone very happy and social after which was neat. felt so festive@dine_and_dash I cut way back on wheat lately and feel surprisingly great. Replaced it with quinoa and oats. Food is fascinating!!@dine_and_dash I wound up not eating the pb&j saved my limited gluten/grains for the day for a @Cinnaholic roll :)@dine_and_dash course was very fast and great though very urban not scenic. Well organized and very social runners. Loved it! #runoakI love that a tennis announcer on ESPN2 just said "sweep the leg, Johnny!" talking about going after a players's weak forehand lolYay! 64th out of 768 women runners: my The Town's Half Marathon - Half Marathon results http://t.co/0UXksW33jhMayor @jeanquan handing out high-fives to our finishers!
