1. Consistency is key
Not to long ago I read that there's some formula you multiply your weekly mileage by to see where you'll hit the wall - and that had me worried, because I don't think I ever ran more than 20 miles, and many weeks, whil... Read more
Fair warning: if describing food makes you wan't to eat, you might want to skip this blog.
My husband & I always seem at odds when it comes to food in Vegas. He wants cheap eats - not so easy to find anymore, but not impossible. I want good... Read more
I slept fine sat night, the night before the big race - other than waking up at 4 am, but that isn't really terribly unusual for me these days. I don't get nervous. I know there are many, many things that can go wrong - but I've done my training... Read more
Last night we went out to dinner with NATPLUMMER & her husband - I think we were all a bit tired, they with their long drive & us with the jet lag & running around. NATPLUMMER is so sweet tho - she brought me peanut butter chocolate brownies bec... Read more
First, let me say what a crazy place Vegas can be. NOT a good town if you don't like crowds, altho DH doesn't but he still limes it. He went off to gamble yesterday, I was going to watch a movie, do some shopping, then we'd meet up at todai, a s... Read more

It's not actually painful, bu... Read more

Way cool! You plug in your height & weight & then it shows you photos of women the same height & weight. I know yesterday's blog was semi-Debbie-downer - I blame it on he gray days... Read more
Both good - and bad. It has quickly become my habit to have pancakes for breakfast - or lunch, even, if I'm running later in the day - on long run days. I top them with PB2 & use slept flour, so they're at least semi-healthy. But my long run doe... Read more
I feel like I'm in a really good place with food. I'm happy with the choices I've made at the wedding & yesterday. What I'm not happy with is the results.
Which is ironic, because my size six jeans still fit. My clothes aren't fitting snug... Read more
Remember I shared with you recently that it's not about what you deserve, but about what you're worth?
It's so easy to tell yourself that you deserve to eat whatever you want today. You deserve to take the day off & relax.
But what are... Read more
Friday we drove down to stay with my husband's cousin & his family. We meant to take them out for sushi, and we did eat sushi, only they paid for it. Saturday we got together with his uncle & aunt briefly. Then we took the cousins out for lunch.... Read more
Oh yeah baby, not only was it breezy & cold this morning, but it was snowing as well off & on. Ok, just who have I become?
I must say, if I had other opportunities to run this weekend, I definitely would have waited til later in the day. Or... Read more
As I mentioned, my jeans, which were still really snug a week ago, were fitting pretty loosely. So I decided I no longer needed to wear my loose jeans, it was time to go back to more form fitting jeans to keep me honest.
When I pulled on a ... Read more
I may sing a different tune tomorrow, but for right now I'll say it: it's been a good, albeit very busy, week. I feel as tho I'm peaking, physically, at the right time. I sure hope that's true!
My jeans, which have been fitting snugly for a... Read more
