PART 2 of MY CONTINUING SAGA..
I hadn't intended to write the previous blog but I guess it sort of explains how I came to the place I've arrived at today and serves as a "catch up" to what's been going on in the world of Deej, albeit only a... Read more
And my Saga continues.. 2 (plus) years later.. running INDY (again!)
I could hardly believe it when I saw that I last blogged in October of 2012! Shame on me :( life gets busy indeed and with a full time job, a Mom & Brother to oversee care for and a blessed opportunity to "do life" with my hubby, 4 children and... Read more

A lesson in humility... Part 3 (the lesson)
I heard my name & my town announced as I approached the line, I walked several yards to the medal table where a kind volunteer handed me my medal, a banana, a water & a rose and then... oops LOL can you believe I totally forgot to stop my Garmin... Read more
A lesson in humility... Part 2 (the race)
...One of the precautions they were taking as they explained, was to remove all the clocks so there’d be less to clear from the field in case of evacuation and I don’t start my Garmin till I cross the start line so I didn’t know how long it too... Read more

Running Down Recovery Road - Ready for the Next Chapter
Sitting here this morning with an attitude of gratitude as the Holidays approach, I decided to take some time to jot a few notes, especially for the benefit of others who might be discouraged by a set-back due to injury.

Back on Recovery Road :) & finding joy in the journey

Running down recovery road... (Blog 5) HARD LESSONS LEARNED!
As I uploaded my bike ride from yesterday, I saw that it had been exactly one month, to the day, since my last upload, a .12 mile run on the 30th of July. YES, that’s a “point” 12, NOT 12 miles. On that day, I knew something was beyond just NO... Read more
Running down recovery road... (Blog 4) ROADBLOCK!
I just returned from my Podiatrist appointment and am still processing his words; words no runner wants to hear.... “STRESS FRACTURE”. All caps the best way to type the quote as they pretty much express the way he said it. He clearly had no do... Read more
