And yes I know it is my fault. Sticking with my previous habits from years ago, I am posting while having my morning coffee at work. I've already been here for an hour and while getting my daily SparkPoints and reading some health articles I t... Read more
Wah. That's about the best way to describe my mood right now because once again I have a random ailment with no easily discernible source.
What it is so far: in the absence of any other symptoms and any immediate possible triggers, my thro... Read more
Despite biology and hormones trying to F up this week for me, it's actually turning out pretty good! I'm helping train a friend to run the 5k Mud Run in September with me. I'm more like her pace runner and motivator when we head out, but the o... Read more
So I've been trying to get on my internet at my apt since last Thursday. I had just finished my routine computer maintenance with updates, spyware sweeps, virus sweeps and defragmenting and then overnight shutdown. This theoretically should h... Read more
Well, I arrived in LA last night at 12:30am local time...which was the equivalent to 3:30am for my brain. And the guy sitting next to me on the plane wanted to swap emails. Bu-bu-but I, uh, whah?! See I know I'm a friendly person: it is my go... Read more
How come I only get the weird ones?! I'll be fine doing most of my exercises, and sometimes the more rigorous it is, the safer I actually am. Guess it's that whole fear of pain forces you to do it right deal I got going on... But even then, I... Read more
So this weekend was the MS Tour de Vine bike ride. And it is the reason why I am so exhausted right now, but in a good way.
Friday after work was the meet and greet with my team since I didn't actually know anyone on it. I just joined to ... Read more

I'm sorry, but this news article just struck me as being seriously wrong. A man gets hit by a driver disobeying traffic laws, and then the driver speeds off.... Read more
So lately I've been a little tense...well, actually a whole heck of a LOT more tense than normal. To the point where I had to lower my weights and stay away from some of my usual gym exercises because my neck and back muscles were replaced with... Read more
When I do the bike ride in June, I will wear the names of the people I will be riding for. Among them will be the name of a very special woman. She died from MS in 1999 leaving behind a husband and daughter, my best friend. She left such a st... Read more
This is the note my body sent me while I ran today, and I'm sure I'm gonna hate me tomorrow. With a passion. Why? Because I'm an idiot and I like to push myself sometimes when I shouldn't. So what was so bad that my body hates me? Well, it ... Read more
Alright, so I'm a big fan of doing races/events that raise money for good causes and thus could not pass up the opportunity to join the MS Tour de Vine being held here in Charlottesville in June.
Now that I've joined a team, it's time to st... Read more
I'd say that most of the time I have the patience of a saint, but my mom is also on SP and would probably be one of the first to laugh at that statement soooooooooooooo...moving on.
I'm patient enough to know when to wait or walk away, and ... Read more
To begin with, me and my legs have a strange relationship. They are capable of taking me on runs of any length no matter what level my training may indicate I'm capable of. I came off of recovery from asthmatic bronchitis and did a 10k with no... Read more
Yes, I know it's taken me a while...but I'm notorious for procrastinating! So this is for all my MMM friends since I SAID I'd do it...eventually... Still not sure I like how it's gonna turn out. Meh.
Alrighty, so why do I rock?! This is... Read more
