Hitting Rock Bottom
So, it's just about midnight on Halloween 2015, and I'm probably at my lowest point in years. I've gained back all the weight I was so proud to have lost a few years ago, and the lump of stress in my throat is just about choking me. No, surpri... Read more

Everything Happens for a Reason - Disney Half Marathon
Recently, my cousin told me that she firmly believed that everything in life happens for a reason. I thought that was an interesting outlook (and one that can definitely help you through life's ups and downs), but didn't really think of it much... Read more
"Fernando is faster than you" - My Lightbulb Moment
I've been asked a lot, lately, why I recently decided to start running at 51 years of age. (Most of my friends are supportive - although I know one or two think I'm completely insane.) To be honest, I wasn't entirely sure. I played around wit... Read more
Day/Dydd 108 - MADE MY GOAL FOR VIRTUAL WALK
Today is a special day! After 3.5 months of daily walking (and, recently, running), I have completed my virtual walk from Heathrow Airport to my Auntie's house in Wales with a stop off at my cousin's in Liverpool - a total of 249 miles! It's b... Read more
Day/Dydd 105 - Including Virtual Walk
It was a good week as far as exercise this past week. From Sunday to Saturday (yes, I'm a day late with my blog, but it's been SO busy) I managed 22.04 miles.
That brings me right into my old back yard as far as my virtual walking tour. ... Read more
Day/Dydd 97 - Including Virtual Walk
Overall, I'm pleased with this week. I did 14.5 miles, which is not huge compared with some previous weeks; but it was a very intense 14.5 miles. Rather than just putting on the steps/miles walking and doing the same exercise as I've been doin... Read more
Day/Dydd 90 - Including Virtual Walk
Well, I've had a lovely, active week this week. I ran with my running clinic on Monday, Wednesday, and this morning (although I hope I get credit for that run, as my FitBit battery was VERY low when I set it to recharge just now).
I've b... Read more
LOL! No sooner do I decide only to blog once a week, when I've got something exciting to blog about every day!
I had my first running clinic last night, and I ROCKED it! I was more excited than nervous; but when I got there and saw how la... Read more
Day/Dydd 84 - A DOUBLE Milestone Day!

Days/Dyddiau 81- 83 - Including Virtual Walk
Well, last week was fairly poor on the exercise and nutrition fronts. WAY too much work at the moment for exercise, and DS's birthday celebrations on Friday/Saturday definitely threw a spanner in the works as far as eating. All that is going t... Read more

Starting to get back in the groove - although not there yet. Yesterday, I was a little more active than I have been l... Read more
Days/Dyddiau 77 - 79 - Starting Race Training
Well, the truth of the matter is that I haven't been tracking ANYTHING since the weekend. There was really no point. I knew that I got virtually NO exercise since I've spent every waking minute at my desk; and I knew that my eating habits had ... Read more
Days/Dyddiau 70 - 76 - Including Virtual Walking Tour
WOW! What an intense week! I can't remember the last time I worked so long and hard! Unfortunately, that included working all day both Saturday and Sunday this weekend. I had meant to take Sunday off, but we found a bug in our code Saturday ... Read more
