Marathon Training Catch Up Blog!

Tuesday, March 20, 2012      10 comments

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

Sparking at the 35th Annual Cincinnati AHA Heartwalk!

Monday, March 19, 2012      12 comments

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

Group Marathon Training 10 - And the mileage increases

Monday, March 05, 2012      14 comments

Wow, those were SOME storms on Friday, huh? Added some excitement to Game Night with the kids, that's for sure (as the worst of the storms were hitting, I was picking up one of our cats from the vet - the kids, and our friend Jimmy who'd been in... Read more

Group Marathon Training 9 - HILLS and an NSV

Thursday, March 01, 2012      4 comments

Hills are our friends! That's what Rich (the primary walking coach) tells us, anyway. And considering The Pig is a hilly course (it's Cincinnati, not like you could really avoid hills here), it's good to practice right? Right! But FIRST, w... Read more

Group Marathon Training 8 - Chilly but we did it!

Saturday, February 25, 2012      7 comments

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

Discouraged Blog is Discouraged

Thursday, February 16, 2012      24 comments

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

Individual Marathon Training Session 6 - Back on the horse!

Tuesday, February 14, 2012      5 comments

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

Not A Happy Shiny Blog

Monday, February 13, 2012      18 comments

I feel like a slug. No really. 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

Group Marathon Training 6 - Getting In The Groove

Thursday, February 09, 2012      9 comments

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

Individual Marathon Training Session 5 - Just Do It

Tuesday, February 07, 2012      7 comments

Mondays seem to be big for "just not feeling it" I'm finding, at least the last couple of weeks. Maybe it's the getting up earlier than I usually do. Maybe it's the fact we're doing it at the gym (don't get me wrong, I LOVELOVELOVE my gym and my... Read more
