What a difference a month makes!
So in the last month, I have changed jobs and stopped exercising, and my weight is up to 182! WHAT??? I ordered Turbo Jam and it is sitting in my apartment. I am having a hard time getting motivation back to start going again. I can't believ... Read more
I finished! I did it in 36:15 (as you can tell from the post title) which is an 11:42 mile. I know I can do better but the end of the race was a slow uphill so it KILLED me. The search for the next one is already on! My friend paced me at a ... Read more
Seriously, what's wrong with me?
Ok, so my 5k is on Sunday (gulp) and my last training run was last night. All along, my goal has been to finish in 35 minutes. Well, last time I ran outside it took 42 minutes to do three miles, last night was 35:30...and I was MAD!!!!! What?... Read more
I finally did it!
On Monday I ran three straight miles!!! I had to slow down because of a really bad side cramp because my breathing was horrible in the last mile, but I still ran the whole way!
Today is a light day, only 2 miles, then another 3 mile run th... Read more
And then the sun comes out!
So my career dilemma is over, I signed an offer letter with a new company and am just waiting to take the drug test and get a start date. I haven't been happier in months! My current job is so hot and cold...one day I love it and the next (or ... Read more
When it rains...it pours
So not only am I having a career dilema...I am having a really rough week.
My grandmother died after a LONG battle with cancer (lucky me, it's genetic) last week. Needless to say, I didn't get in ANY running at all last week. I am so drai... Read more
Stupid "fresh air"
So I ran outside for the first time yesterday. It shouldn't have been a big deal, 1.5 miles. Monday I did 2.25 so I though it would be ok.
I was dying! There were times where I wanted to walk more than I wanted to live! ... Read more

Ok, so the May 18th 5k is out, that is the same day as Erin's marathon and there is NO WAY I am missing that...she has worked too hard and done so much for me that the least I can do is stand on the sideline and support her run.
Yesterday I... Read more

Finishing Week Three
Well, my friend (Erin) did her marathon, she finished in 3:50, 23 minutes better than her personal best and 10 minutes shy of qualifying for the Boston Marathon. She is so close she can taste it! Literally, she is planning the celebration bar-... Read more
I am way ahead of schedule! I ran a straight two miles last night! Rock on! I now have a long break because my friend is running the Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach this weekend so we are off until Monday. I will try to get out and walk ... Read more
20 minutes of running!
Well, I did it! I ran a full 20 minutes last night. I beat my goal of running 1.5 miles and ran 1.67! If I would have set the treadmill timer for 21 minutes I would have gotten in the last bit of the 1.75 for the total distance I needed to do... Read more
I'm really doing it!
Last night was my third day of running and I ran for 19 of 20 minutes! I ran for 15 minutes (1.25 miles), walked for one minute, then ran the next four minutes to end my 20-minute cycle! HOLY CRAP!
My goal is to run the full 1.5 miles on ... Read more
