It could have been bad, I overslept AGAIN today! Two days in a row and I did not get in the run I needed for my 1/2 training. A meeting after work put me home late and then of course there was homework with the kiddos. However, I did it anywa... Read more

So I got my fast internet a couple of months ago and I think I've been on line less since then. Not because it's fast and doesn't take FOREVER to do something but I've just been online less. That is because I've been busy moving! Too busy to ... Read more

Was a bit of a challenge to get on the treadmill today. Had a few moments when I got up that I didn't feel too great. Thankfully, that passed and I climbed on. Just as I was getting ready to run, in comes little guy who wanted breakfast so of... Read more

So before I begin this crazy adventure to see if my body (and my knees) can survive training for a 1/2 marathon the pre-training adventure began today. Today I did a three mile run. Now, outside, three miles is a no-brainer and requires ... Read more

So I had a fantastic summer. Besides it just being a lot of fun, I was able to exercise everyday, food was on track and then came fall. What a mess. To say my motivation has been lost isn't quite correct, but being able to stick to it ... Read more
