The last day of 2009. What a year! Just from a health perspective...I have to say it was a pretty great year for me. And I am so grateful for the inspiration and motivation that my Spark friends have channeled to me across the Web. There are a l... Read more
We had a very nice holiday together. Normally, my husband is working and I am with my family. Months ago he asked for time off. We went to service on Christmas Eve. Unfortunately, it was standing room only...but we were together.

So much happening in the month. I have a few goals:
1. Keep journaling food
2. Get all my H20
3. Get 2-3 veggies today (a problem point for me)

This year has been a tremendous year of growth for me in so many ways. I would not be where I am without the amazing tools here on SparkPeople, along with the friendships made and supportive teams. The web is a powerful tool and there is so much... Read more

I have a lot of things on my brain. If you read it, then God Bless You. It is more for me to get things out there and maybe it will cause me to further think some of these things through...and maybe not at all.

My mom sent this to me and I appreciated it...so I am posting it here:

Got up just after 4am. Chugged a cuppa joe and ate an energy bar on the drive down to the Metro. I chatted with some other runners on the ride down. It was amazing...when we got to the Metro...it was just a long line of people just walking const... Read more
So here I am, twiddling my fingers...waiting for the marathon. I have had so many things on the brain. And, thanks to those thoughts, I did not sleep well last night. Some things that I have decided:
1) I will take in blocks every 40 minute... Read more
Thank goodness it wasn't raining, but boy was it cold. The countdown is on, kids. A week from today, I will be recovering from the marathon. Really happy with my overall pacing.
