Finally "full"y crazy...
I'm not sure if this is a bucket list item, or just needing to be on the bandwagon, or what....after much deliberation (and 22 half marathons) I've signed up for a FULL Marathon.
It took me almost 3 weeks to finally push the 'yes' button. ... Read more
1 week later...
It's been a week since my Dumbo weekend at Disneyland, and I'm feeling great!
I took it easy on the 10K firstly because I had a half the next day, but also because my teen was participating. I should have disregarded the fact he was there... Read more
Really, it's been a year?
Seriously, I didn't realize that it's been a year since my last blog post here...
I did this one for somewhere else, and thought it was funny enough to bring to this site too....
So, just got home last night from 4 solid days of 'fun' ... Read more
Follow on the the 'crazy' idea...
First off, thank you all for your awesome positive feedback! It's incredibly encouraging!

Feeling a little dorky, but that's ok
So, I've started carrying a jump rope with me for my work travels. I felt a little kooky just jumping, and then I started keeping track of how many times I could jump without missing (or hitting) the rope. Made it much more interesting. Like ... Read more
I have 1 month left to Dumbo, and I'm starting to sweat it.
Poorly trained, I feel like I'm rushing things now, but doing my best to be ready.
Lots of things seem to be going just a bit off:
Not feeling like running....it's so easy t... Read more
It's about that time....
Time to make another blog post!
So, I decided not to sign up for Tower of Terror. Not because I didn't have the money for registration, but more because it was going to be hard to justify the time to go. My f... Read more

Lent, Or something else?
First off, let me start by saying that I am not religious. I do know what the Christian holidays are about (Easter's meaning, etc), but I do not consider myself to subscribe to any one particular religion.
That being said, I was out to din... Read more
So, this week starts our company wide "Biggest Loser" challenge.
I'm not sure how I feel about it. I did well when I participated in one last year here on SP. I was serious about it, I trained at the gym a lot. I ate better. I counted m... Read more
With a time of 3:28:31, I completed my first Half Marathon. The GPS says it was 13.5 miles...so I'm super happy with my time!

I'm excited. I did the training. ... Read more
