Are you ready for the next great adventure?

Being sometimes derailed by injury and illness has taught me that consistency-- more than any other tool in the box-- is not a "nice-to-have" but a "must."

My very best days are healthy days with things like:
- Running, pilates, yoga and playtime
- Kale :)
- Celebrating & feeling grateful every day

Thank you for the candle goodie. My grandmom us resting
comfortably. It is sad to see her without energy. I helped my Aunt move furniture and go through clothes yesterday. My anorexic son came with me.

I go home Tuesday. Still have to run 9 miles! It's extremely hot here in Florida.

I hope your holiday is going well.

Great job on your run!

Thanks for the roller! Had to book airline tix, hotel and rental car for tomorrow - didn't get out! My grandmom is dying, headed down to help and say goodbye. 2013 is not a good year for me!

Thanks for your support! I wish you could go. I am going to book a hotel for the night before so I don't have to deal with traffic. There is a post race concert - looks like a fun day!

Hi! I think about you often - it is just so much right now. My son is home, staying at my house this week. He lost weight when he stayed at his house. His best friend, who is 24 years, has been diagnosed with cancer for the third time! This time is not looking good - the port for chemo is going straight to his heart. I took both of them to lunch last week - my son looks way worse than his friend. Every morning I go to his room to wake him and hope he is not dead. All I can do is trust in God and keep going. Now I am making his food at home, He likes to cook so I am hoping he starts to add oil and butter as he goes. Anorexia is such a vicious disease. And it's breaking my heart - but I keep trying new ways to get through to him - I hope something clicks!

How are you?
