I've been at a 12 minute/mile pace for a 'long' time. And, I recently turned my 'short' weekday runs into 4-5 milers instead of 3 milers. Early last week, I ran 5 miles on the treadmill, and was pleased to see my time! Since then, I've been... Read more

I was at my Y today. Not the one I've been going to lately, but the one I went to 8 years ago when my daughter was a preschooler. I used to love to take step class. I have taken Step twice this year, but at the 'new' Y...and the teacher isn't th... Read more

I got on the scale this morning and saw something I didn't want to see. I'm back up 5.5 pounds!!! I hit 135.5, something I haven't seen since I went below it back in February or so. Maybe this is the wake up call I need. I want to cry! And, I wa... Read more

I live in the Houston area, and even last week our temps were up near 90. But, it has been cooling off in the mornings - it's been in the mid 60's to mid 70's. And, I did run my HM a week & a half ago with temps in the 60's. But, yesterday a coo... Read more
