Second topic that Fierce Conversations (book by Susan Scott) wanted us to jot down words about was "Your life".
I already shared those about myself, in an earlier blog: www.sparkpeople.com/mypa ge_public_journal_individu al... Read more
I wish I had pictures from yesterday's workout with BJ (my trainer). I sent her a text yesterday morning, giving her the heads up that I had run 4.6 miles the evening before, instead of the planned 2 miles. I wanted to head off at the pass any... Read more
The Alzheimer's Association is putting on a big push this week! Last night my neighborhood running store teamed up with them to sponsor a run/walk event by the title name: The Longest Day, corresponding, of course with the longest sunrise to s... Read more
When I was musing over the three topics: what I think and feel about myself, my life and my work over the weekend, I did let my fingers type along. Sometimes just seeing it in writing gives you the idea of what you need to work on. Of course,... Read more
Before I go into my own words about myself, let me backtrack and give a little introduction to how the book came to be written, and how the term "fierce" got paired with "conversations".
The author, Susan Scott, comes from a background of t... Read more
Although, face it, all my blogs are a form of "thoughts about self", the exercise from the book is going to wait for later.
About the race: I kind of jumped the gun. Why? A least partly because I already paid for it, and I'm frugal (chea... Read more
This is continued from the previous blog... thanks to all of you who are choosing to "play along"... whether you wrote a word or phrase in the comments or not (if you're thinking or writing in your own journals, paper or electronic, that works, ... Read more
Y'all know if you've been reading my blogs over the years, that I go after self-help, analysis kinds of books, from time to time. I have two in progress at the moment.

Yesterday morning's commute to work may be thanked for the blog title today. I had been hearing rolls of thunder, but the rain didn't start pouring until just about the time I was pulling out of the garage. Can we say "deluge"? Broke the city... Read more
Didn't have the thoughts to rub together to blog on Saturday or Sunday. The "re-start" effort to shave off about ten pounds? Mixed.
Active lifestyle is OK:
Swam 1000 yards Friday
Ran 5 miles Saturday
Walked (not biked) the "Nebraska... Read more
The first step to getting where you want to be is to pull your head out of... denial (don't worry, I don't think Spark would let me post what you THOUGHT I was going to say)... and assess the reality of where you are.
The second step may be... Read more
I've been working with BJ the personal trainer for four weeks now. She's been doing her research not just on improving / stabilizing the run, but also specifically for things that will help my swim, and balance out the weak/strong sides of my b... Read more
I know I've mentioned this being my favorite time of year... the turn from Spring to Summer. The lush greens, the blossoms, the birds... it reminds me of my childhood and the freedom of Summers off from school. Swim lessons and music lessons r... Read more
When I first met with BJ, I targeted the Buffalo Run as my "return to racing" event. I might run/walk Cornfield Cornfield before that (since I already paid for it), but over the long weekend, I finally registered for the 5 mile Buffalo Run.
