Just a teaser for what's to come tonight when I get all of my pics uploaded...
My official time was 2:29:07!
The "wall" came at 11.5 miles. Ooof. A couple of songs from SparkFriends really got me through this point.
I burned over... Read more
So many of my SparkFriends have acheived some amazing running feats, and those stories have inspired me so very much and have kept me focused on training and acheiving my goals. As I tackle my first half marathon on Sunday, I wanted some new mus... Read more
So I gained a pound in September. I bounced from 179 to 182 to 181 to 182 back down to 180 today. Why? Well, I ate out a lot at the beginning of the month when my sister-in-law was here and was eating about 2000 calories a day for a week. Since ... Read more
Some mornings, like this morning, I roll out of bed and can't believe it's time to wake up again. Ugh. Ideally, we should spend 1/3 of our day sleeping in order to better function and to face the day with energy and good humor. Though sometimes ... Read more
OK, this might not make a lot of sense if you're not familiar with Philadelphia, but here goes...
OMG, it's like 80 degrees right now and I'm crampy and all I want is a gelato. Not the Italian thick ice cream (like at Capogiro) but a real ... Read more

2. Was going to go to the gym Monday but I found out my grandfather has Stage 4 lung cancer and we're h... Read more
Did you go off-track this weekend? I know I didn't have a stellar nutrition weekend, though I did make up for it by burning thousands of calories. Still, more sodium and fat than is good for me.
Pizza night on Friday with family... four sma... Read more
My favorite cardio activity on non-running days is kickboxing. I know that when I first went to a class, I was extremely intimidated, because the name of the class sounds like I need to be some sort of ninja warrior to be adept at it. This is si... Read more
I read a blurb in Woman's Health this month which stated that people who identify themselves as being an athlete will have an easier time staying motivated in exercising and staying active. Therefore a person who self-identifies as a runner will... Read more
Yesterday, I went out for a run and was busting it out pretty fast (9-10 minute miles) for the first 2.5 miles until I was stopped by a lady looking for her dog who was pretty sure that she saw her (Daisy) in the underbrush, so I half-ran/half-w... Read more
