Sunday, June 27, 2010      3 comments

May in Review

Tuesday, June 01, 2010      2 comments

May was sort of a 'holding steady' month. Ended up pretty much the same weight I started, which means I'll have to tacle weight loss seriously again when I get back from Europe. Much of May was taken up with fine-tuning plans for the Europ... Read more

Greekfest 5K 5/21/2010

Saturday, May 22, 2010      2 comments

I'd commited to this race to stay in touch with some of the people I'd met at my winter running group. Turned out DH had conflict and was not able to join me after, which was disappointing. And, since I'd run the 10K only 6 days earlier I was ... Read more

April 2010

March Review A strange month. For the first 20 days everything was on track, and I was down almost 3 pounds (love how the scale gives you feedback when things are going well.) Starting March 20, though, things changed. Went to pi... Read more

Turkey Trot 2009

Thursday, November 26, 2009      10 comments

My dubious and excited SIL appeared at the doorstep at 6am. She'd driven almost an hour to get there, and was ready to go. I gave her coffee and a banana, and went off to try for the second time to pry DD out of bed. By 6:30 we were ready to ... Read more

Mad Cow 5K

Monday, August 03, 2009      8 comments

Now, who could resist a 5K with a name like that? It was close to our summer place, and I figured it would be small and I might improve my time over my last 5K - maybe even place in my age group if it was small enough. However.... It was ... Read more
