I stepped on the scale this morning to a surprising 4.5-pound weight gain. I stepped off and back on again. That can't be right. Hm. Yup, up 4.5 pounds.

Despite my frequent declarations that I am really getting serious this time, my weight has crept back up to a weight I swore I would never see again. I am sooooooooooooooo irritated with myself.

Biking in the Rain, Crossing Scary Bridges, and Eating Pie
My biking "coach" (really just a friend who is a way more serious biker than me) advised me to add 5 miles to my long ride every week. So today I set out to ride about 35 miles on a local bike trail. Two friends went with me.
Overall, it wa... Read more

I'm slowly making a comeback from my calf injury. Tonight I ran 6 minutes, walked 1, repeated for a total of 30 minutes. It seems almost too easy to bounce back! (Thank God!) In the past when I've restarted, it seems like I restarted from the be... Read more
