NOTHING like crossing the finish line of a marathon

the finish line - i see it i see it

coming into T2 in the rambling rose triathlon

I have 25 pics in my gallery


oh my stars and garters

Right now I'm just doing whatever it takes to keep my head above water. I'll rethink everything in 4 months when I am finished with chemo and radiation and can rebuild my life.

Thanks for the blog comment. I don't eat sugar as a rule. I personally love cardboard snacks....Especially if they have a nice layer of tofu or something else that's totally tasteless spread on top. emoticon

I just posted to your status hahaha - I think you should take it easy today and leave early and start your weekend.

How'd things go yesterday? What kind of Christmas loot did you haul in?

Thank you for commenting on my blog. You said you still had parties to go to and were worried about gaining more weight. This is something that used to work for me. I know everyone says to eat first, but I couldn't always do that, so I would tie a piece of cord , or string, or fabric around my waste (under my clothes). I tied it so tight, it kept me from eating too much. I guess I was making a do-it-yourself lap band, but it worked. It improved my posture too because I couldn't slouch with it tied tight. lol

Dang your husband really is the Flash! I can't even fathom running that fast. I mean I can ... but only if I'm running a couple hundred feet or so.

What run are you doing next weekend? I'm doing my official 12th run in the 12th month next weekend too ... on Sunday, Dec. 7th in the Jingle Bell run.

I bet Bodie LOVES when you take him running, even if it takes you down a minute mile. Bodie don't care about time. Neither should you. (Hey, that just might be my mantra....though wifey would wonder who the heck Bodie is haha.)

So what is a Chi running book? Is it kinda like a zen thing where they try to teach you to run without thinking of how hard it is???

Breathing exercises?

Anyway .. thanks for the support about the potential new job!
