RunGirl 13.1 Swag
Today, I picked up my packet for tomorrow's Half Marathon! I love my Goodies! We even have a pair of temporary tattoos. I may put one on my face...just wondering if it gets itchy or anything when I sweat?
When I work out, especially on the treadmill, I have to play games with my mind. For example, when I ran 15... Read more

Sorry I haven't posted before now. I was sick and then dealing with a little medical 'scare' (I had a mammogram that showed 'something' - went today and, praise God!, it was just a water-filled cyst - but, it was something hanging over my head).... Read more
The Emotion Just Came Out
Today I "lost it" when I felt a loved one didn't support my running. My chin was quivering and hot tears were running down my face. I was burning with fury. Here's what I wanted to say, but didn't...
