Try this again. I often wonder if there's a story behind names I see on here.

Good word. Typos on the thread name have caused me to delete and repost twice. I give up. You know what I meant.

my last name is Weir, when asked by people how to spell it I say "weird without the d"
I run as well, my wife and I just did the Gettysburg marathon last weekend, during training periods we put in 30 to 50 mile weeks. my last 5k time was 23:17, I want to get down to 20 minutes.

so, running weird.

Nickname from high school. Has to do with my last name.

Yes there is a story behind my username, The name explains it all. It is my username on all forums, I subscribe too, but I should really change it to Afghanvet_3x because I have been there 3 times and Iraq once. I don't change it because I would get confused between forums so I just keep it simple.

Exactly what I'm looking for.

I'm not a Marine. But good for you. I have good friends who have done multiple tours.

Mine is simple too... Nickname and location... Although people tend to think I have something special for an animated rodent in a nearby county.

Mine is really meaningless...for the most part. I'm a total geek and love Chess (not to be confused with being good at Chess; I'm not). I am infatuated with how the knight moves. I am also (mostly) of Irish descent. For some other forum's name, I looked up the name for that Chess piece in Gaelic..."Ridire".
