been AWOL for a little bit, here is whats been happening in pictures....

Thursday, June 23, 2011

Got my shadow box from the Green bay Half Marathon... NICE!!



Got a cool Fathers Day message on the whiteboard in my office



Made friends with the kitty next door



Took the time to actually read. Enjoyed my new running book by a fire.




Had a great weigh in after some very discouraging results...





Went for a walk before my head exploded from all of the stress and fatigue of 12 hr shifts and dealing with crisises at work... AWESOME PICS very relaxing..















ME Plotting my next campaign of terror against the caloric forces of darkness... 8 1/2 weeks until I start my race tapering... gonna BRING IT!!!



That pretty much sums it up in pictures...

    Great Pics. Remember it is a journey we need to enjoy one day at a time. Very hard to do some days. (I'm there right now also) but the health and fitness we have gained are wonderful changes from where we once were and you have traveled so far. Keep at it.
Spark on my friend

    I loved all the pics - the triumph of the half marathon shadow box, the love on your whiteboard, the cuteness of the kitten, the svelte manliness of you after your weigh-in, the beauty of the UPI, and finally that adorable smile. It all really made my day. I'm sorry you've been stressed lately - feeling that way myself so I can understand. HUGS TO YOU! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    enjoyed the "peek" into your routine and the walk to destress - looks like you walked quite a ways!
Funny to imagine reading by a fire when we have temperatures in the 90s most days here! I'm trying NOT to get into a "little ice cream to cool off" routine. Maybe I'll try making my own frozen lemonade... emoticon

    Great pics. What are you planning with the calories? I find it too challenging to keep calories low when training for an endurance event. I want to make sure I'm fueled for the long runs. Its either one or the other. I'm looking forward to after my half marathon to go back to calorie cycling.

    The pictures are amazing!!! Where do you live?? Its absolutely gorgeous!!!! I'm envious! I live in the desert, so seaside photos are always so pretty to see!!! We can definitely work on tackling our "diet ninjas of destruction" together my friend - I'm training for a race this October and am working on getting down to a good racing weight! Hopefully some happy changes will be coming for both of us soon! Keep up the great work!

    I'm not sure which is better ... the whiteboard or the shadow box - both are absolutely AWESOME! The pics from the walk are amazing, very relaxing as I am sure the opportunity to get some reading was as well as the new friend you made. You're right - you were BUSY! That makes this whole journey worth the while. That you can ENJOY a very full, fun and productive life. Thanks for sharing it with us!

    Thanks for sharing a little about you. Great shadow box, a real keepsake.
Must be some great kids.
Love the book. Read it just before my first marathon. With the schedule I finished it without any problem.
Glad you're getting fitter.
Looks like a great place to be.
