Ah Friday morning weigh-in's, how I love to hate you! I'm numb this morning but I think that's from the fatigue I'm feeling and not the disappointing number on the scale.
I've done it all right this week; I've worked out, I've eaten well... Read more
A race without Music
I just learned that the 5K race I'm going to run in November does not allow the use of an ipod. WHAT?! I have to admit, it freaks me out a little bit. Okay, it freaks me out a lot! Often times during a run it's my music that pulls me through... Read more
Fear, when it takes hold it can be paralyzing and traumatic, if not dramatic. With fear comes the questions that start with, "What if ..." and it rolls downhill from there. I spend mental time pushing back up that hill when my fear takes hold... Read more
Finding a New Goal

I kept thinking the heat was the cause of the problems. Then I thought maybe it w... Read more
Back from my Vacation

It's Graduation Day!
Today I graduated from the C25K program! I did it!
I knew walking to the gym today that I was going to run and run I did. I ran for 35 minutes and truth be told, if I didn't have to get back home I would have kept going. I felt great t... Read more
Striving to keep it all in perspective
Sometimes perspective is fleeting and today I am holding on with my fingertips and my knuckles are white. Last time I lost perspective I wrote a bitter email to Doc, he won't get one of those this time.
My perspective slipped last night ... Read more

We explored the other part of the trail where I run. I have a couple of new area's that I ... Read more
When all else fails put on your Macgyver Hat
My boss was kind enough to buy me the bike rack I wanted for my birthday and the Mr thought we should break it in the other day. We set out to attach it to car - the lady at the bike shop said it would fit, no problem - she was wrong. After al... Read more
