Today my family and I went out to hike Enchanted Rock. It was very cold, but clear and lovely. We got to the park early and made the hike up. It is a very steep climb. On ... Read more

Goal this week: Tracking

Monday, March 04, 2013      6 comments

I find that I am better with tracking on routine days. Works for water and exercise too. So, now that I am back at work, I am getting into the tracking habit again. I do like the Sparkpeople phone app, and use that at home. This weekend wa... Read more

The girls and I got new hair cuts yesterday. I like them all! My oldest dd had thought about going really super short, but decided on losing about 7 inches and it is shoulder length and cute! My youngest dd went with a short and shaggy cut that ... Read more

Running, then falling down

Tuesday, August 02, 2011      9 comments

Yesterday I was out running (actually it was feeling like a hard day so I was trudging through my run/walk) with one of my dogs, Gus. It was early in the morning, the sun was in my eyes and I was "just keep running, running, running" (like Dorie... Read more

Capitol 10,000 2011

I ran in the Capitol 10,000 last weekend and LOVED it! My daughter went too, and we both had a blast. This is a HUGE race with 23,000 people running. That had been enough to keep me from it for decades, (that and the fact I wasn't running ;) ... Read more

Running? I think I actually LIKE running!

Saturday, April 10, 2010      5 comments

The last two three mile runs my daughter, Walden, and I have taken have really been nice. I have found myself realizing that the first hill that I have hated isn't so bad. The long slow incline at about 2 1/2 miles in, really is managable. Th... Read more
