Yesterday, for the 2nd day in a row, I developed a MASSIVE headache at work. And nothing helped it to ease off. When I got home from work, just before 2:00, I headed straight to the bedroom, changed into my comfy clothes, and turned on Net... Read more

Yesterday, I decided that I have been slacking (again!!) on the strength training. Since I got to a point with my knee injury that I was able to really start picking up the running mileage again, I started neglecting the weights. No more! ... Read more

I stayed up too late again last night. I do every Tuesday night. I don't have a DVR (or cable, for that matter) so if I want to watch "The Voice", I have to stay up or wait and watch it online. I stayed up. So, of course, I overslept this mo... Read more
