I am running the OC half marathon tomorrow. It's not my first, but it's the first time doing the OC venue and I hear it's hilly. I've done lots of running lately, yet I'm not feeling ready. I'm sort of tired from the work week. I guess I just ... Read more

Namaste my friend

Namaste... Can I just say I'm currently loving yoga. I had a hysterectomy in December and when I had the green light to work out again, I had no core strength. I was sitting in the back, hating yoga. The instructor tells the class to "define ... Read more

Motivation.... A couple weeks ago I sort of lost my motivation, and I had to stop and look at what has driven me to this point. So let me list some past motivators. This way, if I misplace it again, maybe I can find it here. For starting... Read more
