I didn't have anyone with me to take photos of my HM last weekend (as sister-in-law was running full which started in a different state), so I bought my photo! I wanted to share it. This is at the finish line. The crowd was really going WILD...i... Read more
Today our Saturday group (a local USA Fit group) was running 8 miles...at 6:10 am! It's DARK at that time of the morning! But, it was a lovely run!
First of all, it was 57 degrees when I was getting dressed. It sounded chilly, so I put on c... Read more
I read a great blog entry today called "Darn You, Galloway!" on CARYNW's blog. It was about how she's 'discovered' the benefits of taking walk breaks. It was really interesting! www.sparkpeople.com/mypa ge_public_journal_individu a... Read more
I am watching my DVR recording of this weeks' Biggest Loser episode. One of the contestants, Joe, just swam across a pool...something he was afraid to do. Then, he said those words, "Who knows what else I can do?"
I paused the DVR and had t... Read more
After seeing my sister-in-law after her first marathon on Sunday (it was BAD), I realized (again) today how important it is to do strength training and cross training. In fact, I think I AM going to go back and do triathlons this spring. I just ... Read more
HI! I'm home!!! So, I have my computer instead of the iPad and it's easier to type. Before I forget all of the details, I thought I'd share the 'long' version of my 2nd half marathon. Here goes...

I ran my 2nd HM today...the Mother Road which is in KS, OK, & MO, though the half skips OK. I had a wonderful time, though it was a very challenging, hilly course! The weather & people were wonderful. And, it was a tiny race with about 500 runni... Read more
Tomorrow is the big day! I'm excited and nervous...a good thing, right?
I wish I was feeling better. I've had a cough and sore throat the past 2 days, though I think it is from allergies. I haven't gotten much sleep the past 2 nights, eithe... Read more
I kind of feel like a contestant on Biggest Loser today. I did my last HARD workout before tapering for my half marathon on Sunday. I did the same two 'new' classes that I did last week, and they are SO TOUGH!!
First was the weight lifting ... Read more
I blew it this weekend...big time! I think I probably had 20 chocolates, not to mention the chips, kettlecorn, soda, pie, ice cream...ummm...etc! Ugh! And, I didn't work out at all, though that was planned.
Yes, the scale is now reflecting... Read more
I wasn't going to weigh myself this morning. I was afraid it would send me in the wrong direction...hopelessness, frustration, depression. Not at all what I need when I am trying to get back on track! But, I wanted an accurate reading of how 'ba... Read more
My post just got e-aten! Anyway, I'm struggling with overeating, poor nutrition, eating lots of junk food (to the point of my stomach aching!), and gaining WEIGHT!!! Ugh! I am TRYING to get back on track & just have to DO IT! I will try, again, ... Read more
I'm just pretty frustrated with myself. I've been overeating for weeks. Not just overeating, but eating junk food instead of healthy food. It's starting to show on the scale and on my stomach. I'm frustarted with myself and have to mentally get ... Read more
Yesterday I tried two 'new' classes at my Y - back to back by the same teacher. They were very different classes, and I really enjoyed them both!
The first was called "Maximum Core Strength." As you can tell from the name, it was a strength... Read more
