Busy Weekend - Reflection
This weekend we had a break from the winter weather. I went for a solo run on Saturday afternoon. My group went in the morning, but the time did not work for me. The weather was in the mid 40's and there was a little sun. This was my first outsi... Read more

Spring Half Marathon?
I was contemplating a Spring Half Marathon out in the further south suburbs in early May - but not very seriously. Well, yesterday evening on Facebook I saw a post that there will be a women's Spring Half Marathon in Naperville in April. OK, I t... Read more
Yes, it's winter in Chicago which means it's cold. Really cold. The below zero with the wind chill. Now I know it has been a really mild winter and we have not had many of these days and it is colder in other parts of the country. But when it ge... Read more
2015 Flew by!
Hard to believe another year is over and we are on to 2016! Looking forward to making it a year where I meet my goals! I've really been maintaining for a while now. I yo-yo back and forth with a few lbs. And while it's great to know that I can m... Read more

Thanksgiving Weekend Wrap-up
On Wednesday evening, I went to my HIIT class at the gym and had a great workout. They change the workout every 3 weeks, so it keeps it interesting. This means they change the body weight exercises that we do off the rower. So we row for 250 met... Read more
Short Work Week!
Here it is Tuesday and one more work day to go! We had our first snow over the weekend and it is starting to melt, it will be in the high 40's tomorrow and mid-50's on Thanksgiving so I think the snow will be pretty much gone.
I did get a 3... Read more
Finally Feeling Better!
Well last week I was out of town Tuesday through Friday and I still felt congested and had a cough, but I was much better than before. I did get a workout in while I was gone, but I did not run. One of my running buddies was trying to get a grou... Read more
After the Half Marathon!
So after the half marathon, my hubby and I went to breakfast and then walked home 1.5 miles since we walked to the race. Good for working out the muscles. I raked some leaves later that day, but mostly took it easy. Monday I had the day off and ... Read more
Half Marathon Day!
Well, I was at the doctor on Monday since my congestion was actually worse. Bronchitis and lungs sounded pretty bad. He gave me another round of antibiotics. He didn't tell me not to run the half marathon, he smiled and said "it probably won't b... Read more
Week 17 of Training - not done...
Oh, this has not been a good week. Last Saturday on the 8 mile run, I felt some congestion coming on. It got worse from there. I did not run at all this week, just not feeling up to it. Coughing, runny nose, sore throat. I did work out with my t... Read more
Week 16 of Training Done!
OK, the Half Marathon is now less than 2 weeks away! Wow! This past week I did not do a ton of running and that is OK, we are tapering. On Saturday, I decided to step it up a little and I ran with a faster pace group - they run at 10:30 min/mile... Read more
Week 15 of Training done!
So this week I flew to San Juan, PR on Tuesday and arrived home late yesterday evening. I did get some workouts done while I was gone, but not as much running as I would have liked. When i started training for this half marathon back in July it ... Read more
Week 14 of Training in the Books!
Well this past week was a better week for getting training done! Not as much family stuff getting in the way or allowing me to make excuses. The weather cooperated too! I'm feeling pretty good so far about this half marathon and I think it is a ... Read more
