The Belt Buckle Bash
Saturday, May 14, 2011      9 comments

Last evening hubby and I attended United Way's Belt Buckle Bash. We took a hayride all around a horse ranch, listened to good (not usually my kind of music, but I was in the mood) country music, had a very good BBQ dinner in a big auction barn,... Read more

I got my award today. I expected a medal I could wear around my neck something like the one I got at the Senior Games. I thought it might be a mini-trophy, maybe a plaque, or a perhaps a certificate. I was wrong. It is a colorful painted drinkin... Read more

Not Quite the Way I Remembered It
Sunday, May 08, 2011      8 comments

Okay, the race clock says 31:13 as I'm about to cross the finish line and 31:15 after I'm well across it, not 31:09 as I remembered. ... Read more

Sunday, May 08, 2011      8 comments

The Mayfaire 5K was my second race. I think I did good. First of all, I finished. That's good. I was far from last. That's good. I got the hydration right (wasn't dehydrated, but didn't need bio-break). That's good. My new MP3 earbuds that curl ... Read more

Thursday, May 05, 2011      8 comments

I know that tracking our calories in and our calories out involves a great deal of estimating. No matter how hard we try to get it right, there are variations. Yet I was quite surprised at the amount of variation I got recently. At my gym I... Read more

Wednesday, May 04, 2011      8 comments

Yesterday I put Gwen down for a nap at the usual time of 11 am. She's 7 months old and will sit when I prop her up, but usually she just turns onto her tummy and then turns to her back and soon back to her tummy. She tries to crawl, but she goes... Read more

Yesterday I achieved perhaps the most challenging goal I set for May. I walked a 10 minute warm up, ran for 82 minutes, and then did my cool down walk for a total of 8.5 miles in 102 minutes. I ran right at 7.5 miles. At that speed and in the ai... Read more
Just Humbaugh??
Monday, May 02, 2011      5 comments

It occurs to me that the whole cuisine industry - fancy chefs and gourmet food - may just be nonsense! Bah Humbaugh!! It seems to me that people like - or learn to like - whatever they eat. Extra salt, fat, and sugar may seduce us into lik... Read more
