Saturday I decided since I plan to keep running that I might as well invest in what I need. I bought the shoe inserts to help cushion my high arch. I was having a little bit of cramping around the arch area and thought it might help. Yesterday w... Read more
Congrats to all my SparkFriends who received trophies for accomplishments in March. And thanks, SparkPeople, for mine! I just love trophies: Perfect Attendance, Consistency, Trivia A+ Student, 1000 Fitness Minutes and 500 SparkPoints. Good stuff... Read more
Review of March CleanSWEEP goals:
Clean - pretty good. I currently have 27 binge-free days and counting. Near the beginning of March I had an incident of unplanned overeating of granola bars. I also had one night of insomnia that I got up ... Read more
Yes, I was a Peace Corps volunteer in India from 1971-1973. I lived in the village of Warandh, taluka (or block - kind of like a county) Mahad, jilla (or region) Kolaba, in the state of Maharashtra, located 140 miles mostly south and a little ea... Read more

Since at least one SparkFriend asked for the details, above is the link to the book that is suppose to c... Read more
By this time I expected to be a published author. However, according to Amazon, the book that is suppose to contain my story has been rescheduled to be released September 2011 instead of March 2011.
I signed a contract on this little piece... Read more
I finished a women's running book by Galloway and his wife. He is the one who recommends walking breaks in with the running. I'm kind of trying that method. My four mile run this morning had 30 seconds of walk break about every 5 minutes. I made... Read more
I read a running article today that was eye opening. It cited a study of women runners over the age of 50. It found that older women runners only burned 80 calories more per day than women the same age who were non-runners. They attributed it to... Read more
It is true! I found it on the web site. I came in third in my age group in my 5K race. I don't know that I want that fact to change anything and yet I am unabashedly an award junkie. Yesterday, I bought two running books. This morning I tried a ... Read more
Today at Weight Watchers a woman I ran the Senior Games 5K Road Race with told me that I left too early. She said that despite the fact that I saw many, many people cross the finish line before me, that I came in third in my age group and should... Read more
As I retrieved my sweaty clothes from my car after my very good gym workout this morning, many of the advantages of my healthy lifestyle were going through my mind: I'm healthier, I'm more energetic, I feel better, I look better, I feel better a... Read more
Since I've been focused on running one good thing has happened. I've lost -- at least temporarily -- my obsession with the scale. I'm up a bit and then down a bit. I'm eating, not perfectly, but very good. I'm meeting all my exercise goals. My w... Read more
Okay. I finished with the race tips. It's kind of audacious of me to post a training tip because my training was, at best, hit and miss. I read a poster that said there was a 5K road race for people over 50 and I said to myself I wonder if I ca... Read more
Hey: 1,2,3,4, 4.5, 6!! I skipped 5. Oh, well. Here's my last one for now.
My tip is don't flop!
5a. I wish I'd gotten my glasses adjusted before the race. My grandkids knock and pull on my glasses all the time and my glasses tend to s... Read more
Here's my last tip about feet, unless of course, I think up another one!
My feet have not been biggest asset. I wore corrective shoes as a kid. I have big bunions and have been diagnosed with a Morton's neuroma. When I was fitted for my sho... Read more
