I had to give up Sparkpeople this past year as my job began to consume my time. I continued working out. My plans for a half marathon were shot down by a nasty fall on roller blades. In April I decided to get certified to teach indoor cycling.... Read more

Feeling good. Went to the gym and got on the treadmill for a 6 mile run. It was a beautiful day and I should have run outside but I figured the numbers on the treadmill would keep me motivated. I ran at 12 minute mile pace. It wasn't too tiring... Read more

I'm feeing pretty good about myself. Got up at 5:30 am for a 5 K that started at 7 a.m. I really didn't train for the race- made the decision to run the race 2 weeks ago. I probably ran 4 times before the race. I did really well the first 2... Read more

Went out for an early morning run..not sure of the distance because I ran the trail at the park. It was anywhere from 3 to 4.5 miles. The city says the trail is .75 miles. My body is not so sure. I will walk it later with my phone. I love the e... Read more
