The Weekly Mile: Week 6 (The Week That Wasn't)

Monday, May 21, 2012      10 comments

This week was pretty much a training failure. I got some pretty terrible news on Thursday that I'm trying to deal with, but the combination of being emotionally exhausted and a sudden 90 degree weekend meant that my desire to try the 14 mile di... Read more

The Weekly Mile: Week 5 (How Heat and Hormones Can Hinder a Half)

Tuesday, May 15, 2012      4 comments

I now know how the 2007 Chicago Marathoners felt after a month of training in 45 degree weather when on the first weekend of October it suddenly ascended to a hot and humid 86 degrees. We go through months of putting our bodies through every ki... Read more

The Weekly Mile: Week 4 (Finding Inspiration in Adversity)

Monday, May 07, 2012      14 comments

The rules that once seemed to apply to living life in your 30s don't seem to make sense anymore. To say that times have changed since my parents were in their 30s is an understatement indeed, and thus, it's hard to turn to them for advice these... Read more

The Weekly Mile: Week 3 (How Do You Run When Your Heart Is Broken?)

Monday, April 30, 2012      19 comments

It's been coming for a few months now. But I've been in denial about it - trying to draw out the good stuff as long as possible. No time is a good time to break up with someone, but eventually it's only a matter of prolonging the inevitable, w... Read more

The Weekly Mile: Week 2 (Running For Miles While Standing Perfectly Still)

Monday, April 23, 2012      10 comments

One of the challenges involved with training for a marathon and still attempting to lose weight is, well, the latter. I've heard it from a number of fellow runners now that it is almost impossible to continue losing weight while training hard f... Read more

The Best Feeling In The World

Thursday, April 05, 2012      9 comments

I know I haven't been around much lately, but I promise I've been busy. I need a sign to put on my Spark page that says "Gone Runnin'" like the "Gone Fishin'" sign my dad has hanging up by the lake. Since I'm up to running 4 days a week no... Read more

March Madness

Friday, March 16, 2012      15 comments

I'm peeved. "Training, not Trying" has gotten me all of nowhere. Sure my training is going GREAT, but not trying has gained me a whopping 4 pounds in less than a month. So we're not doing that anymore. I'm depressed. I don't like it... Read more

Training, Not Trying

Thursday, February 23, 2012      17 comments

I'm done trying to lose weight. Not forever - just for now. Because chances are, if I quit trying so hard, it's just going to happen anyway. Instead of beating my head against a wall about monitoring every calorie consumed and wondering why t... Read more

No White Knight

Thursday, February 16, 2012      15 comments

This week has been a somewhat somber reality check in the aftermath of Valentine's Day - supposedly the most romantic day of the year. My reality check? Fairy tales don't exist. Neither does Prince Charming, or Cinderella, or Happily Ever... Read more

The Hunger Games

Tuesday, February 07, 2012      10 comments

The novel is on my list of "must reads," but this isn't a blog about a book. I'm terrified of being hungry. There - I said it. I'm STUCK right now because I can't bear the thought of being hungry. The thought of being hungry scares me so... Read more

So I think most of us would either have to be living under a rock or never signing into SparkPeople to not know about the release of both the SparkPeople Cookbook and Coach Nicole's new 28-Day Bootcamp DVD. In a very smart marketing campaig... Read more
