I am not lost, I am exploring

I reached my goal of completing 4 HMs in 2014! Wow, did that look daunting before I ran my first one in March! Now I plan to repeat in 2015!

Running is a passion for me now. I began road running, at age 52, in March of 2013, after walking for 2 years. I say I am running from Dementia, since I am leading a healthier lifestyle to prevent the onset of Alz. Rigorous activity is a deterrent to the onset of dementia. I care for my mother with Alzheimer's, who inspires me every day. ...

Hello,

I was looking at the Chi Running team that you are a member of & was wondering what you think of Chi Running. I noted that there is a one-day workshop coming to this area in June *It's a couple hundred dollars but I'm wondering if it might be worth the time and investment.

I will going to Graduate school in the Fall and really need running to get me through it. The stress and the amount of being sedentary necessary to get through my studies worries me.

Would appreciate your opinion.

Your Spark friend, emoticon Hobbes

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I love Eatingwell and usually make at least one recipe a week from there.

I just posted a cookbook recommendation for The Indian Slow Cooker - if you like spicy foods, it has a lot of great veggie dishes. I've tried a few already - so, so good. And relatively easy for Indian cuisine.

You have some awesome races planned. Makes me somewhat envious but I'm resigned to the fact that this is a rebuilding year for me. So, this one race is one of my all time favorites, its the Octoberfest 5K beer run. It kicks off the festivities in Germantown, with bands, arts and crafts, all good. The course is relatively flat and unique as part of the course goes through a farmer's market where people are shopping. Did I mention the best part? So, each runner gets a free beer after the race and then you can mill around and listen to some music and enjoy the day. (btw, I started training for this 5K in August 2014 and the race isn't until October 10, 2015. I don't just want to run in it. I want to make the statement that I'm back!)
