Race Report: Andrew Jackson Half Marathon

Just Keep Running
This weekend I was supposed to run 7 miles. I wasn't looking forward to it. For one thing, I only ran once this past week, and for a measly 2.5 miles, so I wasn't exactly prepared to run 7. Also, despite the fact that January was one of the mild... Read more

January 21, 2008. That was the day I decided to change my life. I was fat and not happy about it, and I was tired of just accepting it. I had told myself in the past that I was just meant to be fat since I'd spent most of my life that way, but I... Read more

I would say that the first week of 2012 was a good one. Shall I count the ways?
1. I exercised 4 times, for a total of 128 minutes.

As of this morning, that's all that stands between me and my goal weight of 155. 28 pounds. 28 pounds shouldn't be all that difficult to lose, right? After all, I've already lost 78 pounds! It's not like I don't know how weight loss works. I hav... Read more
I like making goals for the new year. There's something exciting about a new year and a fresh start. Unfortunately, I don't have the greatest track record when it comes to meeting my yearly goals. In 2009 I made 18 (!) goals. What in the world ... Read more

Race Report: Right Road 4 Miler, Part 1
October 22, my 30th birthday, was the day for my big race--my first 4 mile race and first race post-pregnancy. In fact, my last race was the 5k I ran on March 27, 2010, at which I got my 5k PR (33:12), so it has been a LONG time since I ran a ra... Read more
Biting the Bullet
Thanks to everyone who weighed in on my scale dilemma (pun obnoxiously intended). I'm sure you're wondering what I decided (and if you're not wondering, too bad because I'm telling you anyway!). Well, I did it. I bit the bullet.
I weighed ... Read more
My Scale Hiatus: An Update
It has been 22 days since I last weighed myself. (For the record, I haven't been keeping a daily count. I just counted up the days for this post.)
