Today's weight was much better than yesterday's, and yesterday was my best eating day in at least a week. Now, to make good eating -- good choices and good portion control -- a streak! Yes, I can. I almost feel like a switch has flipped and I'm ... Read more

I enjoyed the 12.5 mile slow run this morning with 2 guys and 2 woman. I was more than a decade older than the others. We did it in 2 hours and 58 minutes, really a walking pace but we did it with run-walk intervals. My back only complained a li... Read more

I believe it was my 41st 5K. It was the first race I ever ran in an absolute downpour the entire way. There was not one square inch of me dry. And no one could sneak up on any of the runners because everyone's shoes were squishing and squawking ... Read more

"Sweat is a reward. Earn it and share it with pride," wrote Leah, my Galloway pace group leader, after this morning's run. Guess sweat does cool you down, so that is a reward. I certainly was rewarded a whole lot for my run this morning!! Hope a... Read more
