Sunday, October 13, 2013      8 comments

Feeling really good about results from running the 10k Columbia River Crossing this morning. Came in 15th in my division which is unreal (for me!). Made a new PR in 10k, 5k, 1mile and 1k so that was pretty cool also. My official time was 1:05:45... Read more

My week-end work schedule changed about six weeks ago and instead of having to be at work by 7:30 am; I now don't have to be there until 10:30 am. This has been such a relief. No more getting up at 6:00 am which was no fun at all ... and my DH... Read more

Hmmm... time for a little talk with myself. It has been six weeks since I started BLC-22 and I haven't made much progress at all. My goal was to get back to the 120's by week 12 and so far I've lost less than a pound overall and at this rate I... Read more
