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

My thoughts about me... and why I need to go back to the first exercise
Tuesday, June 20, 2017      30 comments

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
The exercises from the Fierce Conversations book
Monday, June 19, 2017      33 comments

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
We interrupt the "thoughts about self" for the race report
Sunday, June 18, 2017      38 comments

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

Alive on the Planet
Tuesday, June 13, 2017      33 comments

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
Weekend survival
Monday, June 12, 2017      26 comments

Friday, June 09, 2017      69 comments

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
Am I imagining this?

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

Wednesday, May 31, 2017      32 comments

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. ... Read more
