I've Been Promoted

Wednesday, November 28, 2012      24 comments

I contacted my Galloway program director and asked how fast a "miracle mile" I need to run to move up a pace group. I told him I'd run a 9:06 mile on the TM on Monday and asked if that would do it, feeling confident I could replicate that time o... Read more

The Excuse

Tuesday, November 27, 2012      19 comments

My hubby says that the reason he wasn't home yesterday for me to go get Natalie from school on time as usual is that he could not find the car in the store parking lot. The reason he couldn't find the car he says is that he didn't recognize it. ... Read more

Unexpected Functional Fitness Test

Monday, November 26, 2012      19 comments

Natalie is released from Kindergarten at 3:05pm on school days and I'm to pick her up by 3:20. Well, hubby had the car and at 3 was no where around. I woke up Gwen from her nap, put her in the rickety old double stroller (the good one was in the... Read more

I Am a Runner

Sunday, November 25, 2012      30 comments

Still reveling in the accomplishment of my first half marathon. Believe it or not, but the pace group I trained with usually finish a half in 2:52-3 hours. So despite the fact that Barb could have gone faster, I'm getting a lot of congratulation... Read more

After the Half Marathon

Saturday, November 24, 2012      18 comments

Again, thanks to Barb (ONEKIDSMOM), Monty (MIRAGE727), and Darren (DSSECRETS) for a great and fun half marathon. Couldn't have done it without you -- at least not as fast and not as fun! Then it was to the beach for a week of family fun: ... Read more

Confident Running

Thursday, November 15, 2012      26 comments

I just finished my last training run before my first HM, the St Pete Women's Half Marathon on Sunday, Nov 18th. Although it wasn't a particularly fast workout nor particularly long one, it did help build confidence. I woke up not feeling quite ... Read more

It's SAD

Wednesday, November 14, 2012      19 comments

Did you know that the acronym for the Standard American Diet is SAD?? It does make me sad that there is so little good food readily available at local restaurants, in friend's homes, and events in our area. My son-in-law is only 31 years o... Read more

Just a Little Kid Before Christmas

Tuesday, November 13, 2012      18 comments

Just checked the latest on the weather for my first half marathon and the predicted weather has gone down a couple degrees. We are now expected to have a low of 57 degrees and high of 67 degrees on Sunday the 18th. The wind is predicted to be 9 ... Read more

Not the Way I Intended to Spend Today

Monday, November 12, 2012      19 comments

You won't believe this. It's true. Somehow after changing plans repeatedly, my hubby went to his alma mater's football game. I didn't want to drive him again to the airport, so he parked the car at the airport. He flew out of Tampa. So far ... Read more

More Than the Nutrition Seminar

Sunday, November 11, 2012      15 comments

I proposed that today I'd write up the nutrition for runners seminar I attended yesterday. The instructor was interesting and passionate and most of what she said about eating before, during, and after running is similar to what I've read on SP.... Read more

Kind of Cool

Saturday, November 10, 2012      22 comments

I ran with a different group today, four women in their 30's and 40's. We ran 5 miles at a very comfortable pace. They made me feel great, calling me an inspiration! I do think it is kind of cool to be kind of old and kind of fit!! (I'll pr... Read more

Can't Do It For Him

Friday, November 09, 2012      19 comments

I'm trying to help/inspire/enable/support my 27 year old nephew. He was recently hospitalized due to ketoacidosis and was diagnosed with diabetes. He spent several days in the Trama ICU, so this was a serious incident. On the good side, he is te... Read more

Thanks to the Brave Ones!

Thursday, November 08, 2012      14 comments

I want to thank all my SparkFriends who are brave enough to detail their food struggles in their blogs. You know who you are! And I love those "back on track" blogs. It really helps me understand that I am not alone, helps me accept who I am, an... Read more
