Time flies -- so much has happened and I've been away from Spark for a while. Oh, I haven't exactly gotten off track. I haven't run for a while. The very cold, and, lately, snowy winter got me down, as well as a couple news reports of some co... Read more
You really never know exactly what a day will bring. Or how you will react to it.
I knew my Mom was dying, and had been preparing myself for that finality for a while. And for the most part, I prepared well. I did much of my crying and r... Read more
Thank you all who have messaged, and posted on my blog, and sent little gifts and notes on my Mom's passing. I SO appreciate it. I am an only child from a small family, so, aside from my wonderful husband's relatives, there are few who can sh... Read more
So my little first digital camera, a Sony Cybershot, has quit reading its memory sticks, and after dealing with using only the tiny internal memory a while, I shopped around and decided to get a new point-and-shoot.

Yep, after the conference last weekend, I woke up one morning later in the week and just felt a tiny bit blah. It was a workout day and so I ran my C25K session just fine. Didn't feel more tired than usual from it afterward although I think ma... Read more

I know it's lame and superficial, and yet, I sometimes still wish that the right running shoe for me were one of those electric green or bright, bright yellow pairs. My shoes are whi... Read more
Ack! It's happening again!
I thought I had things all on schedule, and now my day's falling apart. I am not sure how I will fit my workout in. I know that sounds kind of wimpy because my workout is ONLY a half an hour's worth of time for... Read more
I'm still really enjoying getting back into running. It has been a little bit rough here what with trying several phone apps, battling my tendency to stay indoors and the high heat outside, as well as just life's busy-ness. I'm proud of myself... Read more

I decided to undertake th... Read more
