Well, the plan HAD been to get on the road by 7am on Thursday, but nothing ever goes according to plan when travel is involved. LOL Happily we only ran about an hour later than the goal, so we were on the road just before 8am, and really ran int... Read more
This cross-posted to Facebook, but since I can't connect livejournal to SP yet (hmmm, may have to suggest that to the tech team) and I don't think I can face typing this whole thing out again, here - have a link:

So when we last left our intrepid would-be marathoners, they'd been sidelined by sickness for a week. Happily by last Wednesday I was feeling MUCHMUCHMUCH better and was ready to tackle more hills! Unhappily, my daughter was scheduled to work un... Read more
So as most of you know by now, we did NOT get the required 15 people on our team to get the Sparkpeople logo on the backs of our shirts this year, but that didn't dampen the enthusiasm of those who participated! I spent last week running around ... Read more
We've been on a scavenger hunt around Hogwarts this week, and here's my last item to find:

But FIRST, w... Read more
First of all, if you're keeping track, we missed another mid-week group training run this week. Things at work came to a bit of a head on Tuesday and I worked myself into a headache that could have gone into a migraine, so I took Tuesday night o... Read more
It was a BEAUTIFUL day for a walk when we got up bright and early on Saturday! I was READY! Picked my daughter up at 6:15 and we were at Bob Roncker's in O'Bryonville by 6:45 AM, plenty of time to check in, check things out, hit the potty and ge... Read more
Well, okay maybe not exactly. Just hitting a wall I had hoped I wouldn't hit I guess.
So I got some news before I left work on Wednesday morning. That last hour or so of work was actually rather eventful with news from several fronts (most... Read more
First of all, I want to thank all my sparkfriends for putting up with my whining yesterday. I was REALLY down most of Sunday, and knowing I had mainframe maintenance looming when I came into work just made it all that much worse. Happily the mai... Read more
I feel like a slug.
I made a conscious decision to take Friday as a rest day, in anticipation of walking 11+ miles on Saturday. I was all enthusiastic about walking in the snow - I was READY!
Until a) I ended up sleep... Read more
I think it's starting to gel, this whole marathon training thing. Not that I'm there or anything, I'm just finally falling into the rhythm of the process.
I was tired when I got up from my "nap" after work on Wednesday, but jazzed about ge... Read more
