Ooookay. So, I hit goal last weekend and decided I needed pics. I have trouble seeing the changes in myself and have this idea of how I look that isn't very accurate. I feel bigger than I am and like I take up more space than I do. I still feel ... Read more
So, the scale read 133.8 this morning. I weigh in with clothes on and have the Wii remove 2 lbs. I told myself once I was under 135 I'd weigh in nude and have the Wii take off no pounds. Actual nude weight: 134.9 - my goal is 135-132 but I consi... Read more
We finished and didn't have to walk any of it. Hip held out pretty well though I'm walking like a Gramma currently. Heh. Mostly just soreness, though, not sharp pain.
The weather was atrocious (when you weren't actually running) ... Read more
Feel free to ptthhhh at me all you want. Hah!
It's driving me nuts how my calorie burn has dropped WAY down as I've gotten smaller. What used to burn a ton of calories is now like ... "meh, you burn 89". Darn it.
To hit my weekly goal of ... Read more
"Just a Rat" Written by Richard A. Biby
From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a rat," or , "that's a lot of money for just a rat." They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "j... Read more

At the very end of the video you can see ... Read more
Sooooo... I've got another (mild) running owwie.
Because, again, I pushed it too much. You'd think I'd have learned by now that that's a Bad Idea but I guess I have trouble tempering my enthusiasm.
We were doing really well training for t... Read more

We've rented a cabin in Ely, MN near the Boundary Wa... Read more
So, I'm doing Farm Sanctuary's Walk for Farm Animals again this year. Farm Sanctuary is an amazing group that does a lot of good work promoting veganism/vegetarianism, rescuing animals from slaughterhouses or other disasters and running tours, c... Read more

Had my PT meeting today.
He says what I'm experiencing sounds like all soft tissue stuff and not serious injury. So that's good. He thinks the heel stuff could be due to either overcompensating for the injury OR just a change in my mechanics e... Read more
So, I went to Run n' Fun (yes Becky, that's really the name! Cute huh?) and a young guy was helping me with shoes. He was a bit disgusted when I said I only wanted to look at New Balance since the Asiacs he was getting would be better for my hee... Read more
So, I've done three 2 miles runs in the last, oh, 10 days(?) and have no pain in the site of the fracture. Which is yay(!) and makes me happy. I also have no pain while running. Also yay!
There is a new not fun pain, though, that has me rea... Read more
