I don't know where to start explaining my last couple months. I hope you don't mind if I complain about it first before I get to the better parts. I guess adjusting to a new job that is demanding besides the awkwardness of a new job was the st... Read more

Hi friends. How are you? I've been thinking about you. Not having been on Spark in a long time, I thought about starting over but decided I don't really want to do that. I'd rather pick backup on all the success I had while I was here for a... Read more

I biked 43 miles with 5800 feet of elevation gain in 6 hours last Saturday! The event I signed up for was appropriately called Passport 2 Pain: 6500 feet in 50 miles but do you see the elevation gain in those last 7 miles?! Age is just a numb... Read more

The week before last, I took off work to ride my bicycle a lot. It's hard to take pictures during mountain biking (think trees and dirt) but here are some from my street bike. I'm sorry if they come out side ways. I can't seem to get them to ... Read more

~Work has been too busy and too stressful. One good thing about it is that we're opening a shelter for 50 women next month because we've been running out of shelter spots some nights. That brings us up to 8 shelters we're running. Whew! Enou... Read more

Hi friends. My mother had orthopedic surgery on her ankle, foot and knee last week so I'm in Indiana taking care of her. It took a lot of scrambling to get ready to be away from work for 10 days, which is why I haven't been around SP much. Bu... Read more

Gawly, has it really been 2 months since I last blogged?! It's only because when I spend time exercising, eating well, and relieving stress, it leaves less time for computerizing, which I'm not naturally inclined toward anyway. But I'm gratefu... Read more

Sometimes I read blogs about people's progress or discoveries they make as they improve their lifestyles. I get a lot of inspiration from them, so it seems selfish of me to not share mine! Up until this week, my many story lines'es's for why ... Read more
