Monday morning, 6:15, and my tummy is growling. WOOHOO! I love it when I feel hungry. That lets me know that I have been eating wisely and not pigging out. (and don’t worry, this will be short so I can go grab my planned out breakfast!)

I have a love-hate relationship with weekends. I love having time to do things like run and go to the farmer’s market, and laze about with the Sunday paper. Scott and I hike or kayak, or do yard work together, so that gives me both exercise AN... Read more
Chatting with my buddy KAYAKID this morning (okay, more like whining – I seem to do way too much of that these days) I realized it has been three months since I could run like I want. THREE STINKIN’ MONTHS! In those three months I have walked,... Read more
Goals for July and August are set. Thank you to everyone who offered suggestions and advice - especially AINTSKEERD who reminded me that I need goals to accomplish anything, and ARTHURTOM who pointed out the difference between goals and dreams.... Read more

Happy July! Time for a little reflection and a dose of reality.
In May I realized that I had no goals. Dreams, yes. Desires, yes. But actual goals, no. So I set some. I decided to go for a 90% success rate – still an “A” but no pressu... Read more

The past two days have been those GOOD NEWS/BAD NEWS sorts of days.
I’ll start with the bad news and get it over with.
The biggest one was that my run was lousy yesterday. My leg was a bit on the owie side, the air seemed really humid... Read more
I really need to get upstairs and do my ST but I want to tell you this first….
Yesterday’s run was wonderful. Okay, run/run/run/walk/walk, but still, you know what I mean. I hit the trail just before 5:30 and the birds were in concert, th... Read more

One thing that never ceases to amaze my Mom is the places I will go potty th... Read more
There has been a lot of rattling around in my head since I read the first comment to yesterday's blog - it is obvious that I wasn't as clear as I meant to be! (no surprise there!)
What I MEANT to say was that I am going to complete the ... Read more
Do you remember the story of the father, the son, and the donkey? The father and son were taking the donkey to market. One person scolded the son for making the dad walk. So dad gets on the donkey and rides. Then someone else tells the dad h... Read more
Took care of my stretching and yoga, then did my run/walk in just under 45 minutes for the 3 miles. While on that run/walk I saw 2 bunnies and a silly lady who was walking her dog – sort of. The lady was walking. The dog was in a baby strolle... Read more
Today is my mental health day. Work was eating my lunch and I finally figured out why. I have been training one of the two newbies for over a week now. And it’s our busy time. So that means that I am seeing student after student as fast as p... Read more
