Scanned Finally

Friday, April 04, 2014

My friend, Bertie, who took these pictures asked that I scan and post them, so here goes:


Here's a picture of me finishing the 1500 meter walk. My official time was 11 minutes flat.


This picture was taken during the 5K walk, at about three-quarters of a mile in. We went around the high school track, before heading out the gate, down the street to a park, around a loop with lakes and playgrounds and picnic tables, and then back to the track.


Here's the medal ceremony. My good Weight Watcher friend, Brenda, took the bronze medal.

The Senior Games ended March 10th. It was fun. We'll do it again!!

    Nice pictures. You're a photogenic runner. I look like a frazzled sweaty mess in race pics. I actually bought the expensive Marathon photo of me in the 8 K because I looked so bad I'm hoping it will spur me on to look better in the one next year!! My husband is a very photogenic runner, too, darn him!

Unexpected Motivation

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

I enjoyed a slow, easy run on the TM today with almost no coughing. Just missed two runs due to the cold. I'm back!! There are some new signs at the Y that I like. "Good Things Come to Those Who Sweat" and "Stick with It. What is Hard Today Will Become Your Warm Up." And there's a white board that I can't give you verbatim, but said something like you have just one body to live in and it can be an anchor holding you down or it can be a source of energy, vitality, and joy. Motivation from an unexpected source is even more effective!!

I have plans that will keep me from much computer time for the next week. I'll be done on Thursday the 11th. I'm thinking of using a Runner's World training plan with daily e-mails. My next race, a 5K, will be on June 7th, so I'll have just 8 weeks (and one spare day) to complete the plan. That just might work!!

Wishing you another happy, healthy, active Sparkling day!!

Powerful Short Autobiography

Saturday, March 29, 2014

If you haven't read Portia Nelson's Autobiography in Five Short Chapters, I recommend you do so:

    Life is never a straight line from point A to point B. Habits are just that, whether good or bad. Individuals always have a choice, and sometimes those choices are difficult.

Very good analogy.

Not much in a blogging mood recently. Forgive me. I'm around and I'm reading blogs. I'm doing fine; eating healthy, running, and cross training. Feeling good. Not sweating the scale, but weighing for the At Goal & Maintaining Plus Team weekly. Life is good!!
