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. ...

They had just built an awesome grocery store next to the old office. Since there is nothing decent in my neighborhood, I relied on that to buy lunch makings for the week.
If my stash of fruit ran down, I could just go next door.
Just one more instance where I'll have to plan ahead.

Oh, I liked the haircut from the get-go. It's just that I inevitably go back to my old pixie haircut. I've always wanted to be glamorous, or stunning, or striking, or whatever, anything but cute, which is what I've been for 65 years. I shouldn't complain. emoticon

Thank you for your continued support Mary. My half-marathon yesterday was a little disappointing for me because of my Achilles bothering me on the last half of the race. The road slanted and it was not very kind to me. I did finish but I am not proud the time, 2:36:46. Other then that it was a beautiful day and a very pretty route with Spring everywhere! I even saw an eagle at about the halfway point, that was very exciting.
Rest and ice now for this darn ankle. Gonna come up with a plan B for exercise and hope that I am not out of commission for my next half at the end of June.
Hope that you are enjoying your weekend and your taper!
