I had almost convinced myself not to do it when I landed in Orlando, but when I heard everyone talking about it, I got so excited that I knew I had to try. Last weekend w... Read more

One challenge down, one challenge to go, and a spot of bad news

Wednesday, March 04, 2009      25 comments

So I had the "big work thing" today. It was rough. I survived. The Big Boss, the one I've blogged about before, went off and said my results were "completely unacceptable".... Read more

Three weeks to the race, and 12.5 miles of pure hell

Sunday, February 15, 2009      17 comments

I've worked very hard this week in my quest to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon in just three short weeks. I'm honestly worried that I won't be ready. On Saturday, I se... Read more

I notice a lot of people are blogging lately. Is it because the end of the year is usually a time for reflection, or just because we can now earn a point for it? Who knows. ... Read more
