I can't seem to get enough of this song. Every time I hear it, I stop what I'm doing and listen to the words. They seem to define me...or maybe used to.
You see, this summer I br... Read more
Yesterday, I participated in the Run for the ROC 5K, a fundraiser for a local radiation/oncology center. I’ve done this race before and it’s always fun. It takes place on the grounds of the historic Saratoga Race Course, and it’s a unique opport... Read more

Maybe it was last night's Supermoon...maybe all the planets were in alignment or maybe my feet were just my friends today, but I realized that I indeed can do it. My lunchtime run consisted of two miles of all running, no walking, which is a fir... Read more
I had another rough run today. I can’t seem to run without getting blisters, my breasts still hurt from the mammogram injuries, the humidity really got to me, and even my stupid electronic gadgets malfunctioned. I came back with my head down in ... Read more

Sorry for the delay in this blog. I have been totally wiped out and not doing much.
The weather was just perfect for the race. I was up with the sun because it was an early start, and I wanted to get there early to take pictures of the hor... Read more
I started my day on such a high note. While I was walking Jasper before work this morning, a nice man that waits at a bus stop we pass by told me that I always look so pretty. It really made my day (and made me blush). It was the complete opposi... Read more
As I mentioned yesterday, this Saturday, I am running in the annual Silks & Satins 5K to benefit Special Olympics. I'm running the race in honor of my 13 year old nephew Reid who has Down Syndrome and is a proud participant in Special Olympics e... Read more

Right before lunch, a coworker whom I h... Read more
This morning I had a physical with my primary care provider. I went in very nervous because he has been concerned about my blood pressure, which is usually fine at home, but always high when I'm in his office.
The nurse came in to do my vi... Read more
Lately I’ve had coworkers comment about my working out during my lunch break. They say they couldn’t do it. My interpretation of these comments is “Wow, you’re so sweaty when you come back…”
Yep, I work out; yep, I get sweaty. I completely... Read more
This morning, Jasper and I headed out at 6:30 am for our morning walk. I grabbed the camera because there was a spot on my 6 mile route where I wanted to take some early morning pics.
Along the way we passed our favorite barn, and the morn... Read more
