I'm very happy to report another successful workout! After Tuesday night's boost, I was able to jump into tonight's training run with a lot more confidence and hope that it would feel better. That's not to say that there won't be bad runs down t... Read more

*** Faith, trust, and pixie dust *** Almost Friday, almost there! Today was a crazy busy day at work, but I got through it in one piece. Whew! Hopefully tomorrow will be a bit slower, as Fridays usually are, so I can catch up on my last bit... Read more

*** Faith, trust, and pixie dust *** Kind of an interesting day, to say the least! Today, I had a big project at work going on, and Bruce would be in school (and hence incommunicado) all day. I dropped Timmy off at daycare, as usual, drov... Read more

So, you know how iffy Sunday's workout was. I was supposed to run four miles, had eked out one, and started to overheat and fatigue. I skulked off from the gym almost feeling ashamed of myself. Here I was, the "Super Running Chick" who had compl... Read more

*** Faith, trust, and pixie dust *** Almost halfway through the work week, and it's been a good day. We're definitely still experiencing a lot of the winter blah weather, we haven't heard anything new about the house (hellooooooooo, loan o... Read more

*** Faith, trust, and pixie dust *** Today somehow reminded me that you can find motivation and positive reinforcement in the most unexpected places. Like many of my counterparts, I suspect, I have been suffering a mild case of the winter b... Read more

Today's schedule included the first run (of this program, anyway) longer than 5k. At four miles, it definitely felt weird calling it a "long run" since it really isn't that much longer than what I've been doing so far, but still represented a li... Read more

All you need is faith, trust, and a little pixie dust! The second half of the weekend didn't turn out as relaxing as the first, unfortunately. I was feeling pretty sluggish when I woke up this morning. Bruce and T went off to church and I h... Read more

All you need is faith, trust, and a little pixie dust! Happy weekend! We don't really have many plans in store, especially since, in the coming few months, we are planning to funnel a lot of our "fun" money into house-related expenses. We h... Read more

All you need is faith, trust, and a little pixie dust! TGIF! Kind of funny, Fridays are usually my quiet day at work, but today my clients kept me hopping for some reason. One of them is about to go live, in about three weeks, and they foun... Read more

After having an encouraging start to the training week, I was feeling fairly excited about going running tonight, even though it was just the treadmill! I hit the gym a little while after dinner, and noticed that the new year's crowds are alread... Read more

All you need is faith, trust, and a little pixie dust! Almost Friday, thank goodness! Today we handed over our first house-related money, the earnest money indicating that, yes, we really were serious about that offer we made the other day.... Read more

All you need is faith, trust, and a little pixie dust! So. Um. Yeah. I guess I won't beat around the bush... We got the house!!! Last night, we threw out another counter offer with (honestly) no clue what to expect. We honestly h... Read more

Wow, well, my Country Music training is soaring right along! One week down, just a whole bunch more to go. My first week definitely felt rough around the edges as I adapted to running again after being away for several weeks. I focused on gettin... Read more

All you need is faith, trust, and a little pixie dust! The house-buying plot thickens. Yesterday we put in that offer, and it felt like a shot in the dark since we offered a price near the bottom end of the seller's range, and we knew we we... Read more
