What goes up, must come down...
Saturday, May 19, 2012      2 comments

I've been having a good week, feeling really happy with all I've accomplished: I'm almost down 14-pounds, I ran my fastest time in a 5k ever last weekend, I ran my longest training run ever Thursday, I caught up all the laundry, and I finished a... Read more
The Good, the Bad, and the Terrible.
Thursday, April 26, 2012      1 comments

So, apparently, Thursday is my blogging day. :-) Something rather interesting is going on in my life. I'm going to be working on two 5Ks over the next few months. By working on, I mean helping to organize and plan, not working on running. ... Read more
So what now?
Thursday, April 19, 2012      6 comments

I've kind of hit a stumbling block in my career path and don't know what to do now. I worked very hard on my masters degree, got mainly straight A's, and was set to graduate until I got stuck on my thesis. After a year and a half of trying, I've... Read more
My son's PR
Sunday, April 15, 2012      3 comments

I'm so proud of my son! He finally got his PR under 40 minutes for his 5k. It was a great moment watching him cross the finish line at 38 minutes. I got a new PR, too, by a few seconds, missing getting into the 26 minute zone by 15 seconds, the ... Read more

Broken scale say WHAT???
Wednesday, January 18, 2012      5 comments

I've recently had that dreaded moment. You know, the one where you step on the scale, look down, quickly jump off, say a small prayer the number isn't right, and jump back on only to find, well, dang, the scale really must be broken.... Yeah. Th... Read more

Today, my program called for a forty minute easy run. Even though lately my runs have been getting easier, for some reason, today's run was more difficult. Maybe it was the fact that I was running in the afternoon when I normally run in the morn... Read more
I am a runner!
Monday, November 14, 2011      5 comments

This weekend, I took my first actual class on running. I've been running for over a year now, but this was the first time I got professional advice from anything but a magazine column or a book. The class is a form class; I feel like I have pret... Read more
Baby, It's COlD outside!
Thursday, November 10, 2011      2 comments

This morning, it seemed like a hundred things were blocking me from getting to my run. First, I woke up and couldn't find the warm up pants I wanted to wear. My son had a doctor's appointment, and I'm not a big fan of going in to any business in... Read more
Pace Yourself
Tuesday, November 08, 2011      2 comments

The other night/morning/whatever, when I was at the time change race, I kept watching these people cross the finish line with these incredible times. 16, 17, 18 minutes. I was amazed. I know I'll probably never have a time close to thos... Read more
The Spark
Wednesday, April 06, 2011      3 comments

I started reading The Spark last night, and I have to say it has inspired me, not only on the weight loss front, but also on my other goals. Since I was a kid, I've had one dream, one goal: to write a novel. It's the thing my heart desires more ... Read more
Getting Real
Monday, April 04, 2011      3 comments

So, a few months ago, I lost down to the smallest I have been since I had my children: 148 pounds. I achieved my goal through a combination of watching what I ate on SparkPeople and training for a half marathon. I felt amazing! But then I ... Read more
Welcome to thirty-ville
Thursday, March 31, 2011      7 comments

Thirty is not old. It's not something to be ashamed of or scared or anything of. It's just three decades of living, of experience, of learning. I always thought when I turned thirty that I would feel something different, but honestly, I ke... Read more
My first half marathon: Walt Disney World!
Sunday, January 09, 2011      8 comments

When I was a kid, I had zero athletic ability. When I played baseball with my cousins, I caught it more often in the mouth or leg than the hand. When I tried gymnastics, I... Read more
Halfway there!
Wednesday, December 08, 2010      4 comments

Yesterday, I entered my most recent weight, and I realized that I am halfway to my goal. I can't believe how far I've come using SparkPeople. I'm down two sizes and fifteen pounds, which, compared to how much some of the amazing people on here h... Read more
