Saturday, March 02, 2013      4 comments

Yesterday, it was my long run day; I am still running indoors on the treadmill because it is still too cold to run outside (too cold for wimpy me, that is). I was doing the Jeff Galloway week 7 day 4 which was to run 11 miles. I choose to do the... Read more

It is almost the end of February and I think I ran outside twice so far this year. It has been so cold and I feel like such a wimp because my granddaughter is doing the plunge this year. It is a fundraiser for the special olympics where they cut... Read more

As I was out and about yesterday I noticed that the Dairy Queen is now open. I cannot remember if it was last year or the year before that I had a relationship with the local store. Not this year! I drove by it on the way into town and aga... Read more

This morning I clicked on a Biggest Loser ad and signed up just to see what it was like. I was reading a member's blog who was wishing her boyfriend would get on board with healthy eating and exercise. A few people commented and this blogger cam... Read more
