Las Vegas Rock N Roll 1/2 Marathon!
Back from Vegas! I had fun and it was definitely an experience!
Travel - there and back was flawless, and oddly stress free (I used to travel for work for a living - for a while there the word "Airport" gave me panic attacks lol), but we h... Read more

May Re-Cap, Calgary Marathon 10k, and whats next
Just a quick recap of May. Things have been going fairly well, not sure of my weight at this moment, but I was down to 232 last week, which is inching closer and closer to where I want to be.
Pacing this 10k Clinic has been wonderful and p... Read more
Weighed in this morning, 241.6.
That's UP 3 lbs from a month ago. Kinda feel like I failed, I honestly didn't realize a month had passed since I blogged last and said the same thing as always, "need to get serious". I still want to lose 20 ... Read more
March 19th 2010
Going to mix things up a little over the next little while to see if I can push my weight down a bit. What I have been doing isn't working anymore, so time for a new plan.

Behind the Scenes
The scale hasn't been overly cooperative, but I have noticed some differences lately that prove, at least to me, that this has been worth it, and that there is more going on that meets the eye. July 1st I weighed in around 246, and haven't made ... Read more

Although the title suggests that this is a progress report, that would involve actual progress. The last month has left me actually up a pound or two, which is disappointing, but considering the complete and utter lack of motivation and exercise... Read more
Finally went up to the Running Room on the weekend and got fitted for some new shoes, can't wait to try them out today! Apparently my feet are "Normal", my new balance had too much arch support and that's why they hurt, but I knew that and that'... Read more
